As I’ve said before, I rarely start with a preconceived idea. I only knew that I wanted to include a particular transformation in this one. The Fractal Salamander. This can be generated when you apply the Julia set to a Mandelbrot fractal. You can see this transformation most clearly in the upper left portion of Pharaoh’s Talisman (the bluish-purple area with swirling patterns). I think it serves as a nice backdrop for the primary subject of this render.
This fractal was created in JWildfire; an app written by Andreas Maschke.
