COSMOSPHERE by DeepChrome COSMOSPHERE by DeepChrome
I've been away from my Apo for too long. Mostly due to a lack of inspiration.

Anyways have been dealing with this cold, and had to wait an extra hour so I could take some cough syrup at 2 am, so I decided to pop open Apo3D and tinker around.

This fractal was the result. I was rather surprised at how it started to turn out when I began adding z- variations, and was like "Hey wait, this'll be renderable, and maybe it will actually look good."

I managed to futz the gamma enough in Apo, and then Levels enough in Photoshop to get most of the grain to go away this time...and some of it actually added a little character to the piece since there's a lot of little details lingering around in the darkness around the sphere.

Title, border, and frame in Photoshop CS2. Enjoy. :D

Also, this is the first fractal in which I can honestly say only fullview will do it justice. So please, to get its full glory, fullview it.

Thanks. :D I'll probably work on another of these tonight/today. Feeling rather like I could fractal more.

In the small thumbnail, this looked white and reminded me of a jelly fish. I'm not too sure what it reminds me of in the full size, but it's a damn nice fractal.

Great job Amy!

Thank you. Yeah, the smallview just doesn't do it enough justice. :shrug: Oh well. Usually one can get a decent sense of what they're going to get from my fractals in the smallview, but this one defies that. Maybe that's a good sign. :D

I'd think that is a good sign. :shrug:.

Um, holy jesus, that's the single mot awesome thing I've seen all week.

How do you manage to use Apo so? My fractals all end up all weird and distorted.

I was experimenting. I already knew how to get bubble to work roundish, then was just fiddling more on a 2D aspect, then decided to take the more 2D looking parts of the fractal and tweak them with a bit of z-variation to make it more three-dimensional. (You have to use the Variations part of the triangle editor to do this. I find having a variation carry say, 1 Julian, and .5 of some z-transform, usually gives it some boost...)

Hope that's helped. One thing that helps is to keep your triangles in the same shape as the "default" form, then just scale them up or down, move them, and so on, accordingly. ;)

Ahh, interesting *goes to play with Apophysis.*

In the immortal words of Captain Scott, I may be some time XD

Thank you. :bow: I think I had a similar moment when I just stared at what this fractal was becoming and was like "Yeah, this is gonna be a render..." :D

Just one of those fractals you can sit there and trip over for a long time.
