Not an emotional disorder, nor a special workout routine, just some of the Apo transfomations used to create this image…

Created in Apophysis 7x v14 as an elliptic splits tweaked (bipolar and curl in the Fx with a different gradient) from flame parameters shared kindly by Bunny Clarke, this image was mirrored with a supernova effect and light blue color fill added in GIMP v2.6, scaled up in UF 5.04 Creative Edition, and inspired by this tutorial in the Apophysis Tutorial Fun group.
