DISTORTION by DeepChrome DISTORTION by DeepChrome
One of my funkier ones.

On the off-hand advice of a fractalist who did some very interesting "round stuff in it" fractals, I decided to fool with disc variation. This I did with the "sprial batch" script, and some triangle-fiddling. Came out with a very unique result, so here it is. Took a bit to find a gradient that played with the more "normal-looking" set of circles, and displayed the distorted ones as another, but it was fun.

Apo 2.03a. Title, frame, color-tweaking in PS 7.0.

OMGosh, I love disc-spiral flames. And you are absolutely right, you do have to work on the gradient to get them to show up. When Apo spawns these it gives you millions of discs and you have to find a focus point while also slightly lighting up the ones in the background. Terrific work on this. The electric blue makes it pop!

Hi! :wave:You just earned yourself an ODD! :winner:congrats! :clap:An ODD (Oibyrds Daily Devs) is a little extra spotlight I shine on deviations that I think are really impressive and/or they're not getting the attention they deserve. Please see the link below for all details and do keep in mind that if you prefer NOT to be a feature, just shoot me a note and I'll remove you from the list ;)

Yes, always good to break away and do something new, sometimes it's good, sometimes not, but it's the only way to find something unique in my opinion.

Thank you. I felt like trying an all-blue theme for a change. :shrug: I went through a lot until settling on this one, and I think it turned out pretty cool.

Cool rings! You're right, it's not something you usually see in Apo. I like the blue gradient you've used too.

:nod: Thanks. I usually put out stuff that looks Apo, but every once in a while, I'll land on something atypical for me, and it ends up being too cool to pass up.

WHOA! That's a beautiful piece of art. I love the swirly discs. They remind me of wheels spinning at high speed. And it's interesting you used the spiral batch script here. A nice twist indeed (pun intended), but so subtle that you don't instantly think "spiral batch" when you view it. :+fav:

That's been a peeve of mine--sometimes fractals just SCREAM whatever script you used, and it's so annoying because it's so easy to just fool with the triangles after running the script. I've found it gets some very interesting results. Some of my older ones are modified batch results that I didn't feel like rendering straight out of the script's completion. It just seemed too lazy. :shrug:

Sometimes the spiralize scripts get some really neat results if you triangle the hell out of them. They end up not looking scripted, but not like a typical fractal either. :shrug:

Two words: DVD cover.

If you sent this to Pioneer, they'd beg you to use it as a logo.
