This one’s been swimming around in the back of my mind for a while now but I couldn’t get it quite the way I want it. I’m still not 100% sure it’s perfect so who knows, I may fiddle some more later if I decide it’s not right! :)

Five Apophysis fractals, no scripts, just manual fiddling and overlaying in PSP. :) These flames are all mutations of one another and as they went by me I thought it looked like a planet coming into existence, hence the idea of a planetal “genesis” artwork.
