Artist's Description

This one reminded me of the playing field design in the Star Trek episode described below, whose title planet sounds like a reference to a system with three suns, also represented here. I’ll wager four quatloos that any Trekkie remembers the drill thralls in this story.

Created in Apophysis 7x v14 following 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 sharpened in GIMP v2.6 with added lens flares and a supernova, then saved in .jpg format, finally scaled up in UF. Number 5 in a series of images generated with the instructions in this tutorial called Portals by dA’s SaTaNiA (Damien G.), with nine transforms plus a bit of cylinder added to the final transform. Best if viewed larger.
