Loosely inspired by the nuclear fusion process in stellar cores. This process originally gave the universe the raw elements from which to build the first atoms, and eventually human civilization.
A tidal disruption event occurs when a star ventures too close to a black hole and is torn apart by its massive gravitational force.
- The base image for this work was generated by a distorted Brownian motion algorithm and warped many times in various ways.
- Inputs or outputs of the base texture warping functions were retained and recombined in different ways to create the masking layer. this generates the bright orange and red pattern seen
- The background was composed of layered high frequency noise and integrated with the masked texture using yet more combinations of the same warping functions
- Finally, post-processing and some final domain warping effects give the work its finished appearance.
