Spiral Shell Beads by wolfepaw Spiral Shell Beads by wolfepaw
OK, this is the last one for right now. This is also a tweak of the params sent to me by the wonderful :iconzweezwyy:. I called this "Spiral Shell Beads" because these params make great spiral, Nautilus-type shells.

I hope you like lots of colors, because this one certainly fits that description. Subtle, don't you think? Maybe a little? No, huh.

Made using Apophysis 2.08 3D Hack.

Full view for detail (and you really have to see the detail) and download is 1500x1200.

I hope you enjoy this. Don't look at it too long, or you'll get dizzy.

This is really great. I'm using a cropped down version of this on my iPhone as a wallpaper, but I get to use the whole thing now when I get the new 1080p phone I want!

This one is lovely thanks for sharing!
Its just so shiny and bright, reminds me of Christmas time, because you get those chocolates with the shiny coloured clear wrappers, but it also has a Magical fairground vibe :)

Thank you, Anu!! Yeah, I had so much fun with these params! I'm not exactly sure what I did with these. I was making shells like some sort of demented sea god, but then I think I might have turned one of the transforms inside out and this is what happened. I'll have to go back and check them to see how this came about. But I was thrilled! It reminds me a little bit of cloisonne beads. Do you know what that is? Beautifully painted and wonderfully detailed enamel beads. [link]

Thanks again for sharing them with me, Anu. I am having tons o' fun with them. I'll let you know when I post some more. I want to get back to my shell making. I'm thinking undersea type collage again, or maybe a beach scene. I have to use them in something!

The only criticism i could give on this awesome fractal is that the quality seems quite grainy, if i could be possible to sharpen it up or re-render it it would be perfect. Keep up the good work!

Thank you for your input! I really appreciate it. I'm not sure if I could clean this up anymore. I rendered at 4000, with an Oversample of 3 and did a post-render on it and applied the filter of 0.6. If I apply any more filter to it, it tends to blur things together. I think it's that nature of the flame itself. I have tried moving the transforms around to crisp it up a little, but when I do, I actually change the spiral shape and I didn't want to change that too much.

I hope you like it anyway. If you have any suggestions as to how I could make this better, I'm all ears!
