Spherical Spirals

If you use these flame posts to tweak and then share your image, you must credit the creator, and paste the link to this flame. If you don't know how to get the flame into your JWildfire, read how to add a flame.


Another entry for the Spherical game, based off the flame pack that came with Rick Sidwell’s excellent Spherical tutorial.

Not much to say here except, I like starting with  blur3d then adding a transform with a spherical followed by a split border in this case. Then a julia transform and a final hypertile to get everything repeated across the screen.
