Best of Both Worlds Fractal by SaTaNiA Best of Both Worlds Fractal by SaTaNiA

Best of Both Worlds Fractal




This fractal is made with #Apophysis 7x15
Based on ~IDeviant Pythagoras Tree tutorial.
And this is my entry for the Best of Both Worlds Fractal

So technically :
This flame is a multishape flame made mainly with xaos combos.
First for the "hexagon" tilling, this is made with nGon / pre_blur.

Secondly : For the trees it's pytagoras tree shape made with cylinder / pre_blur + linked pie.

Then the background : It's made with xaos bubble link with stripes.
I've move them a little off center to create "a depth effect" which is improve by the coloring.

The gradient, in fact I don't really remember if it's one of fiery-fire's or one of mine :innocent:

To finish, i've render it with Chaotica :la: :la:

Tiling handled to perfection! The detail (gold trees) in the octagons is lost at this scale and I wonder if it could be simplified by reducing the number of iterations. The pink pieces look like ribbons hanging from a wreath. (*Christmas on the brain already :lol:*)

Technicality: the width dimension needs to be increased so the righthand frame matches the other sides. The highlight in the orbs is only partially displayed here.

This an ambitious piece and a difficult one to get an even gradation of light/brightness in. Balancing weight and Xaos adjustments are critical to the success of the image. You've pulled it off magnificiently!

"Best of Both Worlds" exemplifies the precision and skill that `SaTaNiA brings to all his works in Apophysis. The strength of the composition catches and holds ones attention!
