Fire of the Heart

Remember MA-204. That's when we came across the form
R = 1 + cos(A). The cardioid. Little did I realise then that I could make something so cool using it...

I love fractals. Ever since I came across them some 5-odd years back, I've been obsessed with them. Just the other day, on Terror Candy, I came across Apophysis, a flame fractal generator. (A Flame Fractal is a particular fractal generating technique that uses logarithmic scaling and structural colouring in addition to motion-blurs and anti-aliasing. In short, it looks good.) :)

So, combing fractals and a cardioid, this is what I came up with:


I call it "Fire of the Heart". Jade calls it "Phoenix". Amit thought it was a really cool owl. That's the coolest thing about abstract figures - it is what you think it is. What do you think it is? (leave comment...)

Man. These endsems are turning out to be the coolest endsems of my life!

SEEEEEXY!!
Oo Fire of the Heart is so appropriate! Combined with the song! =D

And yea it DOES look like an owl. A very funky owl.

I <3 fractals too. And someday we shall have our own fractal software. And take over the world. =)

Looks like a really futuristic Batman throwing star..guess the technical term is Batarang (I recall there was something like Batman of the Future, he could use this!)
