Tree of Life

“Everything that has a beginning has an end.”
      The Oracle, The Matrix Revolutions

So where does this image fit in relation to that phrase?  It has the distinction of being the first in a new series of images that all derive from a common Oxidizer genome, but not the true “first” as it has been pushed a few generations down the path from whence it came to life.  Regardless, this seems like a good starting point for the TOL (Tree of Life) collection — we’ll have to see where it goes from here.  Perhaps a fitting subtitle for this image would be “The Golden Meadow”.  Or maybe not, better to let the viewer decide.

On the technical side of the equation this image is the fusion of two distinct, yet similar genomes rendered in Oxidizer 0.8.1 that were composited and post processed in Photoshop.

First run with Oxidizer using Ralf’s simil4 script.  I’m a beginner, so still trying my luck. Image enlarged, re-centered and then rendered, nothing else.  For the green variant, I changed hue and saturation.  Anyone who would like to use these are welcome to do so, and if you do, I doubt you could pay me a better compliment as a beginner.

Something from the front garden at the Chitwood abode, not to be confused with a Champagne Supernova.

Dali Expression by Lennart Östman

This is a breed between two simil4 and simil3 script fractals.  The most interesting fractals can be found in the breeds!  It gives me a bit of a Salvador Dali impression.

Da Vinci Machine by Lennart Östman

This started with the simile script. I don’t remember if it’s a breed or not, but it probably is. This looks like something the good Leonardo could have built.

Just a simple text based desktop, inspired by ads for the iPad 2.  Full credit for the idea belongs to DigitalEl from this forum thread at MacNN.
