Cosmic Lifestream


ok! So it's been a while since I made a new fractal - I like to think that each new one I make becomes more and more advanced, with more visual eye candy for you to enjoy - and I am rather pleased with this one.

I wanted to replicate the lifestream from final fantasy 7 - and make a planet like the epicentre of the lifestream, while also comparing it to the holy materia gdropped by aeris, but instead of water it is falling into space.

Think of it like a birds eye view - and god is dropping an overly complicated sphere of life into the void of space, with the lifestream ready to embreace it below.

Please don't look at art and see only what you think is obvious. Art is about interpretation, and appreciation of form. If you fail to see that in my works then that saddens me, but there isn't much I can do about it.


Made in apophysis 2d, 3d and 7x, as well as photoshop 7.

Love how real this is. The green of the stream is the best part of this work- really adds spark/energy to it (no puns intended) and adds the sense of life continuing on, no matter what and I can feel it pulsing, the will to go on. The starry background makes me feel a bit adventurous- as if I could go space-traveling. Thank you for sharing this one!

you are very welcome!

thanks for the review!


I clicked on the full size pic.
My brain melted.
Got a transplant and now I'm emo.
All worth it.

:D :D :D :D :D


Chronamut responds:


haha yes this was one of my fave ones to do - glad you liked it!

thanks for the review!



I always thought of this as your magnum opus. The greatest of your work. In the vast expanses of an empty purple haze, there is a beam of green. The soul of the punctures the darkness, weaving a web into eternity. The whole of this masterpiece is a like planet, and a shell.
It's a very spiritual work. Harmonious, deep as the dark. Warm as the life that hides behind it. I can hear it, I can feel it.
Very, very accomplished. The lives that have long since past. This is a great work.

thank you very much - yeah I haven't done any others because my computer crashed and I lost all my software.. oh well.

thanks for the review!


The contrrast between light and darkness

is... Aww forget it, it just looks cool.

Chronamut responds:

lol glad you like :P

thanks for the review!


Love the light effects

Wow very impressive with this one, the lighting effects, and glows really seem to comeout very well, you really have those areas down, If you look at the design in the {MIDDLE} its really hard to see, maybe do to all that lighting but from far away its actually pretty good i thought, the backround {STARS} are also cool, nice patches you have there, I see lots of greens, purples and lighting effect on that, it might be that extra touch with abit of {REDS} in there , but anyways, still an awsome well detailed and shows you put alot of effort into this , so for that nice work indeed, cant wait to see what you bringout next, anyways good luck on your next peice hope its as good if not better.

Some other added color would be a nice start to an already great piece.


Chronamut responds:

I thought about added colour but really want for contrast here - which meant complementary colours - purples and greens making the strongest contrast, as well as lights and darks :)

feel free to check out my other fractals, and yes I try to improve on each fractal I make :)

thanks for the review! :)
