Phoenix Heart -Be Reborn- by fanficbug Phoenix Heart -Be Reborn- by fanficbug
May your heart rise from the ashes and be reborn again this Valentine's Day.

---

EDIT: Parameters are at the bottom. :eyes:

:winner: My entry to the Apophysis Weekly Theme Challenge #7 ([link]) is finally finished! :excited:

This render (as some already know) took me a long time of tweaking to finish--originally, it had been one lackluster fractal, but then the render crashed, so I tweaked it again. I spent over seventeen hours in Apophysis getting the shape right, all told. And this is a pure render (except for the frame and text, lol), so I had to torture it out of Apo. :lol:

I'm excited about this piece, and I hope you guys will be too. :love:

Tools used: Apophysis 2.05 beta 2, Photoshop for frame and text

Hope you guys enjoy!

---

I give permission for ~ChipNoir to use this in an animation. :)

EDIT 4/13/13: As promised, parameters. :D Please make substantive changes before submitting any images made with them--i.e. don't just zoom in/change color and render. Tweak it! Please also let me know when you've used the params by linking to your work in a comment on this piece. Further wishes re: commercial use can be found here: [link]

:no: It definitely means something to me and I really appreciate the time you took to drop by and tell me what you thought. :hug:

I noticed that you're new to deviantART; I hope you have a good time here. :) This is really a great place for improving on what you've already learned in your chosen form, though it takes a long time to receive recognition so don't get discouraged. :aww: Your hard work will pay off.

GrayH2 Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2009
Haha, I'm glad :)

And thanks for the advice, but it's too late :P

I get no recognition anywhere anyways, so I'm pretty much just bummed out about it.

Ah well, I'm not surprised I don't have talents in art :P

I am most uncreative.

But you're not, so keep doin' what your doing! :>

nice, I like the burning heart! I would maybe adjust levels a bit and give it a little more contrast and tweak the reds a bit in colour balance to enhance the fiery look. The shape is really cool, heart shapes are fun to make. :)

I can definitely see now that I have a LOT to learn about Apophysis, I never thought before that it could be possible to spend so much time on one fractal- but what you managed to achieve with all that time is definitely worth it! =D
