It's been a while since I uploaded anything sinister-looking, or red, for that matter. I had the idea for this a couple of weeks ago, but only got around to finishing it yesterday. I was aiming for a 'distressed' look in the colour and pattern, like an old scroll or something. I edited the colour balance and added a slight vignette in Photoshop to bring out the details I wanted, but since I made no changes to the shape of the fractal itself, I guess it's more of a Raw Fractal than a Manipulation.
Also, I'm sorry if I've been slow to respond to comments lately, and that I haven't been keeping up very well with my watch list. University work is keeping me very busy at the moment, so I don't have much free time.
Made with Apophysis 7X, with adjustments in Photoshop.
