I recently updated my computer (I decided I was fed up on waiting 20 minutes for my space dragons to save) and then realized that with as much beef as I'm packing I could totally run a fractal program, one of my childhood dreams!
So I've been messing around with Apophysis, and despite the fact that I have approximately 2% of an idea of what's going on, it's been fun to mess with the equations and transforms and whatnot. I accidentally bugged out the program somewhere along the line, but I took a screenshot of what I had pooped out and edited it some in photoshop, and that's what you see here.
It's mostly just a few filters on top to smooth things out and tie it together (lens flare, clouds, noise, and blur, mostly), but I still kind of like it. I can't tell you how the hell it got where it did, but I brought it there, so enjoy!
(download is wallpaper sized, but even with all the filters it's still pretty grainy.)
