Ah, it feels great to release stock images. Perhaps it is the spirit of giving that infects us in the holidays, but
I really hope somebody can put this to good use. The download image is 1600x1600 (big enough for most artistic endeavors), and although it is .jpg, if you would like, I could add the .png image to it in a zip folder.
About the fractal; it is a design I made today called the Gilgamesh Tree. I named the design because it is incredibly easy to make, but I personally think it looks really cool. If you are an Apophysis 3D hack fractal artist, and you want to make it on your own, just make 2 triangles. The first has bubble (1), pre_blur (5), and foci (-1). The second is just a linear_3D (1) that is scaled down. Obviously these numbers can be tweaked to get similar or possibly even cooler effects than what I have here.
p.s. I used a pitch of 45 degrees.
Regarding the use of this stock; do whatever you like as long you give me credit somewhere in the comments. You don't have to ask for permission before using it, and you don't have to notify me of what you've done, although I always enjoy seeing what creative people are able to make. If you want to sell the image you made as a print, I would prefer it if you asked my permission first, but I probably won't say no.
so have fun, and continue to bring new life to DA, because it truly is the greatest artistic community in the history of the world.
