Fire Ripples

Showing a single render of a fractal design is like telling you about a garden by showing you a single flower plucked from it. Beautiful as it may be, it's not the whole story. I want to get better at showing off the latent space of the fractals I work with. This design, for example, has a wonderful contrast of gnarly bubbles and smoother windowpane cascades. With bright, contrasting oranges and greenish blues around a glowing white core, we can focus on the two entangled shapes reaching towards the focal points.

Abstract blue and orange topography is churned by dark, swirling bubbles.
"Pebble Ripples"

Cooling the colors a bit into some warm blues and oranges, we can make out the deeper topography of the chasm in the center. Gentle gradients really accentuate the illusion of depth, and the bubbles feel more subdued.

Abstract purple topography shines with pink and white accents, as very dark bubbles flee the center.
"Velvet Ripples"

Another slight shift and a new purple palette connects the central shapes, and highlights their edges making an impression of two faces looking away from each other. The bubbles feel almost as if they are projections of each face's mood. The rippled topography takes on an impression of flowing, angelic hair, shining defiantly against the encroaching darkness.
