Created in Apophysis 7×15 as an abstract fractal based on the Bipolar Design tutorial by Fractaldesire on DA currently running in Apophysis Tutorial Fun group. Plugins Julia3D & linear3D used in added Fx.
Density enhancement and mirroring added in GIMP v2.6, with scale up, de-magnification and final render in Ultra Fractal 5.04. Best if viewed larger.
The main shape in this abstract fractal image reminded me of a Bishop’s hat, or the chess piece, which combined with the “Bipolar Design” title of the Apophysis tutorial inspired the title of this artwork. That title led me in turn to discover this inspirational story of Kassidi Bishop and her appeal to the NCAA to regain eligibility for time lost battling the effects of bipolar disorder. This is a story that fortunately has a number of happy endings.
