I haven't worked with Apophysis (a "2D" fractal "flame" generator) in quite a while so I decided to boot it up on Asfaloth while two particularly lengthy renders were finishing on my desktop workstations. I was particularly interested in the new "3D" features of the program and trying to emulate some of the incredible floral renders I've seen online. This render doesn't quite look floral yet, but I think it looks interesting enough to share in my gallery while I keep learning. Let me know what you think!

Another awesome abstract. Love this one, could imagine some sweet pickle jar variants someday :)

I really like this--very cool. I kind of think of it as a "flower galaxy". And if you have paid any attention to my past comments, I would love to see this in shades of blue, purple, and/or green... :) (Song of the Sky is still my all time favorite!)

Wow! I usually prefer your 'real life' renderings over the abstracts but this one really 'spoke' to me. I love the movement and the subtle colors! Nice work!!

"Great"
Actually it did make me think of a flower before I read your description, so you've done a better job than you thought.

I am more than happy to have this on my screen

A splendid looking fractal. Apophysis takes some time getting used to but it can create some amazing images.

9+ Nice balance of shapes, colors, dimensions, etc. Can't wait for the dual-screen versions!

"Love these!"
I am a big fan of your abstracts, and this one is great. Thanks for sharing it. :-)



I would love to see more "side projects" like this one while the longer renders are cooking. (If inspiration strikes, of course.)

"Best Fractal Render So Far"
I think some your fractal designs are my goto's when I need a wallpaper change of pace. Please keep making more in between waiting for long renders. I love them

Ryan the pieces you have done lately with central focus on a small fractal that expands infinately is refreshing and calming - not to say your landscapes and cityscapes are not equally unified - your work is continually amazing and your growth as a digital artist is a joy. Contributing as a lifelong supporter gives back to me in spades - being a voice actor with a private studio I build your work into the theme of my studio on all screens and the actors and producers I have in my studio always are amazed at what they see on the screens when they come in for a session. Thank you!!

I've always loved your abstracts and there is something about this one I just can't take my eyes off of.
