This came out of staring at =psion005's Playing With My III Balls piece and trying to figure out how to do it.

It took a few hours' heavy tinkering in Apo, since I already knew how to do the general stained-glass-box looking style from some other pieces. The trick was getting his one hint to work - LazySusan. That's also all I'm going to say about how I made this one. :giggle:

This is also my first use of oversample 3, which turned out so nicely I'm probably just going to render everything at oversample 3 from now on. :D

Absolutely no touchup needed in Photoshop. :D Title and border done in PS, fractal done in Apophysis 2.08.

I decided to try a subtler text/border effect, since the fractal was just so colorful and visually gripping there. I'm not entirely sure if the negative/positive space use was the best, but cause all the colors just interplayed so nicely outside the fractal, I left the frame at where it was to show them.

That stained-glass style is why I like this type of fractal right now. :nod:

This is quite possibly the best I've ever seen from you.

Then again I do have a very soft spot for Oriental visual styles. Two-dimensionality, and utilisation of form, lines and colour.

This almost resembles a screen printing, on silk.

The colours are just stunning :heart:

More "hand made" in structure and presentation than anything I've ever seen from you :)

Thank you. :D

I appreciate the critique.

And yeah, it took me quite a while to build this one from scratch in Apo. Mostly becuase I was trying to emulate something I had seen (=psion005's III Balls piece) with very few hints on how to do it. So in a way it's more handmade than something I just tossed together for the hell of it.

I've got a series coming up, as I saved various stages of the original fractal in its construction, and can build new ones off it. :) LUMINANCE and BRILLIANCE, both of which you'll see in your watch, are part of this series. I have one more which needs a better colorscheme before I can render it, and then I pretty much have it finished up. :D Unless a fifth somehow develops...

Anyways, glad you liked it.

Thank you. It's probably my favorite fractal right now, just for the "built from scratch" factor. :)
