Many thanks to ^SaTaNiA for the DD! I was very surprised and pleased when I found out this morning.


I had the idea for this fractal a few days ago. It's essentially a simple Spherical gasket, but taken from a strange angle, and with some added details. I was aiming to create both a mystical and a slightly mechanical effect, hence the title, which is taken from a Joe Satriani album.

Made with Apophysis 7X.

Amazing 3 dimensional effect! You did the details so well that it's as if I can reach in and pick one up. The realism in here is done so well; being the light reflections on the silver orbs on each every one. I also love how the light seem to whirl pool in the orbs, almost hypnotically. It gives it that magical essence. I have to say, I can't stop looking at this piece. It's a wonderful realistic fantasy and the water to the right seems to be trying to escape the canvas, the 3 dimension is so great. Really brilliant. :heart:

This has a lovely sense of energy. Perhaps universes being born from collisions of many-dimensional membranes.

Oh, wow, thanks for the feature! It's really well-presented, and helped me find a few that I would have missed otherwise. :)

Really like this... I guess it's just the shimmer on the ball bearings. But maybe I see energy connecting them all too - but then, that might just be me... thanks for posting this!

Thanks for your feedback - a feeling of energy and movement is definitely what I was aiming for with this one.
