The most commonly used coordinate systems are rectangular coordinates and polar coordinates (see polar). But these aren’t the only possibilities. One of the less common coordinate systems is bipolar coordinates.…

Following on with the bTransform on a linear elliptic, I decided to tweak my Splits (painful!) flame a bit more, by adding a bit of blur and altering the parameters a little further. Ended up with this image, which I am quite happy with.…

I shoot into the light

Cue Peter Gabriel classic song. Still playing with bTransform as a final, I decided to make some waves, and spirals branch out. The bTransform did a great job of distorting these into a point, with some added benefits of extra shininess (I think), anyway, here’s the flame.…
