I began using Apophysis to create flames in 2002.
Organic yet unearthly, flame fractals seem to emerge from the darkness, glowing with their own inner light; they seem to hint at their forms rather than having sharp edges. They can look like translucent living beings, plant shapes, feathers, and swirling smoke. I never get tired of them.
I decided not to name my flames, instead letting the viewer decide what they see. They are identified only by numbers.
Flame fractals are single-layer images with no post-processing. I offer two free flame screensavers.
