What a beautiful piece of work! I looked for all things I talked about in your last piece, and I found none of them here. The planet looks much more round, and there are no stars visible through it. The sun/bright star actually seems to shine out of the picture and blind you. The detail you put into all the colours is astounding. You can see each ring of colour in the sun, and all the colours in the background. The way you made it really gives the picture a sense of going on forever. I also love the rings, not how I pictured the texture, but it definitely works! Great job on varying the smaller stars in the background, different sizes, colours, and axis tilts. One slight problem, the rings are undeniably off center and possibly a little bent. A beautiful picture all around, your improvement is clear!!
What do you think?

Woah, okay, I did not see that it was the Earth at first and had to do a double take...

Technically, it's not the Earth, but it's meant to look a lot like it. :D

The planet in this one looks a lot better than the last, but the rings look a little out of position, as if they're a halo above the planet rather than rings around it.

Quando vedo questi space fractals mi viene in mente Spore! :noes:
Ci hai mai giocato a Spore? :noes:

Non ci ho giocato, anche perché in realtà a me non piacciono i videogame :lmao: Però lo conosco, so che è un mondo inventato in cui bisogna far crescere delle creature, giusto? :D
Come mai proprio Spore?

Non proprio, devi evolverti da creatura elementare (tipo batterio acquatico) fino ad arrivare alla conquista dello spazio. :la:
Alla fine stai in un'astronave improbabile e viaggi di pianeta in pianeta. :la: Per questo mi è venuto in mente Spore. :D

Cygnus X is a star that is slowly being sucked in by a black hole. It's the only black hole that we have any absolute reference on because we can see the sun's light disappearing into it.

heavenriver Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've actually thought more of the tenth most luminous star in the Cygnus constellation (which is technically not named Cygnus X, I know), than the black hole. Also, my fractal's title is eponymous to that of a song :nod:

Ah, right, so just called that because some of the stuff matches up.
Might want to ignore the prat who commented before me, then.

Yea, I'm no physicist, but I do a lot of theory (I've come up with working theories on time travel and inter-dimensional travel already) and I seem to have a fairly good understand of all things metaphysical. Things like gravity and black holes interest me, so when I saw the name I just thought 'wut'.

Oooh, here's the troll of the day. I was about to ask myself when the next envious folk with an empty gallery would come criticize my works in a completely non-constructive manner. There goes! :lol:

Hahaha! I'm sorry, I was a bit too harsh, but it would really benefit you if you'd do some research first and put on the eye candy later. This one has many flaws in it. And trust me, I'm 0% envious!!!

Good luck!

There are specific programs to make fractals; try Apophysis and Ultra Fractal, for example, or even Mandelbulb3D. :D

I have memory and awareness
But I have no shape or form
As a disembodied spirit
I am dead and yet unborn
I have passed into Olympus
As was told in tales of old
To the city of Immortals
Marble white and purest gold

I see the gods in battle rage on high
Thunderbolts across the sky
I cannot move, I cannot hide
I feel a silent scream begin inside....
