Elliptic Splits FSK Escher Sphere (UF0221) by 

As a personal challenge, I wanted to see if I could make some kind of an Escher with Fractal Science Kit (FSK). Although this is not an Apophysis image, and I had to start with elements of Elliptic Splits, this does contain Escher as a “flame transformation”, and FSK allows me to pick the individual colors rather than having to adjust a gradient.

Created in Fractal Science Kit as an attempt to emulate this tutorial in the Apophysis Tutorial Fun group. Rendered as a .png file, then blended with duplicate layers and a black background, color adjusted and mirrored in GIMP v2.6, then saved in .jpg format, finally scaled up in UF. Number 22 in a series of images based on this tutorial called Escher Stained Glass by dA’s SaTaNiA (Damien), using negative Strophoid in the final transform. Best if viewed larger.

    Beautiful work. Well done.

  • Thanks, Bunny! I missed these bright colors, and had almost forgotten how to use the FSK program after weeks of Apo work…guess I’ll have to devise a scheduled rotation so I don’t get too rusty :o) The same thing happened with foreign languages…one would replace the other if I didn’t stay in practice…must be a limited number of neurons ;-)
