Oh my, I find this mesmerizing. There is a wonderful ebb and flow to it. Not like the ocean, but an enfolding of the convolutions of the flame.

I love the gradient in this. I say that with a lot of flames I see,but it is always a sincere statement. I personally take hours sometimes to pick a gradient because I have so many to choose from. So finding that "perfect" gradient makes all the difference.

Personally I love the circles in this and I do love the blurry aspect as well. It makes me feel as if I am looking through convex glass enclosure. It is as if the enclosure is distorting the part inside it.

What I find intriguing is that in some of the enclosed areas, you can see little flares of light, and some you can't I like that and think it is quite unusual.

I think this has a great sense of depth in it. Once again, I think the convolutions add to that sense of depth. I notice that the deeper the flame gets, the more concave the the convolutions become. They almost have a warped effect. It is particularly noticeable on the upper left of the flame.

I don't know how you were able to get these effects but I find them unusual and different from most flames, which is a very good thing.

I also think the thin border is the perfect framing for this.

All in all, I can find nothing negative to say about this flame.
What do you think?

Wow. What to say about this...I'm speechless. It's just so wavy. Reminds me of fabric with little mirrors in it that's bunched together.

The colours are simply lovely,makes it look rustic in a way. I just want to keep staring at this, it amazes me. The technique is just astounding. To me, it seems as though you've mastered the art of fractals in Apophysis with this.

It's very original. I wonder how you did it. There's not much to say about this since it seems to speak for itself. But bygods, I do love this fractal. Excellent work, I look forward to seeing more of it

SWEET! Looks like some Julian/Epispiral/??? Love the glassy texture and the "jewels". If only the three right most larger jewels didn't have the intense 'hot-spots'. I know that these things are sometimes IMPOSSIBLE to control given the nature of fractals and the way transforms are so interactive. But NICE piece. Going into my collection ;-)

:) no dear, it's mainly a simple linear-spherical ;) well, there's a little elliptic and eyefish as well, and of course bubble, pre-blur and radial blur for the spheres and julian for the circles ;)
yes you're right, those highlights are too intense, but it was hard to manage the whole fractal weights, gamma and the gradient... that's the price to pay to get a nice contrast in the other parts of the image :blushes: I'm so glad you liked it anyway :huggle: thank you so much :aww:!!!

I thought perhaps Epispiral due to the 'star light' radiations. Of course I'm a beginner so there are likely other ways to get that effect.

lindelokse Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2010   Digital Artist
oh now I see what you were talking about :nod: that radiations are made with simple radial-blur with a very little gaussian blur ;)! post transform it and move it wherever you like :giggle:!

Do you know of any documentation which describes the various types of blur.
Difference between radialblur, pre blur, 3D blur, blur....whatever other blur..

I know! How about creating a "Blur Tutorial" and I'll be your "beta tester/reviewer?"
Since it doesn't exist, might be worthwhile to create it and you can Noob Proof it with me ;-)

I find fractals to be both a fascinating thing (for all the interactive nature of the transforms) and a complete pain in the ass for the same reason!
I'm beginning to bend towards the idea of creating 2 separate renders each bringing out/emphasizing desired features and perhaps compromising on others, then bringing them both into ImageJ and merge them into a single version which keeps all the good stuff from the two and ditches the bad!
OTOH, that's 6 hrs of rendering rather than 3 and it may not turn out in the end after a grueling Postwork ;-)

I tried that way too :nod: some of my early fractals were made that way, with sorta layering in photoshop ;) then I tried to achieve the same results playing with xaos values but... hey, it's really hard indeed :nod:
it would be really interesting indeed, I hope there will be something like layers in a future apo version :giggle:!
