Primary abstract fractal created in UF 5.04 based on equation Carr1723S, with an insert of an ngon Apophysis 7x fractal (see the tutorial in the new Apophysis Tutorial Fun Group) accomplished with GIMP v2.6, with final image scaling in UF and some minor brightness adjustment in MS Picture Manager. The clash of pastels and delicate lines in the Apo image with the brassy, metallic textures of the UF fractal is suggestive of the stark contrast of traditional Asian art works with the staggering rates of city architecture construction in Japan and now China…how does the lotus blossom overcome the din of the jackhammer? Will the golden dragon of success spiral out of control??
