Releasing The Inner Demon

I made an image with the new version of Apophysis. When I rendered it, I didn't uncheck the "transparency" box, and it came out quite different than my original image. I tried getting the colors back, and... things... started happening to the image which took me in an entirely different direction. For example, I couldn't see that human figure in the yellow oval in the original. Plain ol' wasn't there. Sometimes, mistakes turn out better than the original intent.

I will certainly toast to serendipity. Which I could say I actually intended to make most of my Apo images. I think part of what attracts me to Apo is you just never know what you are going to see next.

Coolness, Wontar! Tell me you also see the fortune-teller sitting behind the crystal ball (the one the human figure is in) as it rises from the force of the smoky explosion? You've got a cover... How 'bout a story to go with it?

How cool! Looking at these images really unleashes the imagination.
