Alien Egg by llewelld Alien Egg by llewelld
Some kind of morphing alien egg floating in liquid. Probably about to hatch.

It's a really huge file I'm afraid, and the animation will run slowly until it's fully downloaded. On Chrome you'll need the APNG plugin. Alternatively, there's also a GIF version kindly generated by ~pifactorial.

The scene was generated using Functy (plug!), rendered using Blender and then glued together as an animated APNG using APNG Anime Maker. As before, much gratitude goes to ~Tonyralano for provided the general inspiration and know-how for making this.

The spark trails are parametric curves and the egg is a spherical function with the following formula:

radius = 2*(2+(sin(cos(t+(pi*sin(t)+a))+(p*((3+cos(t-1.5))/4))*10)**2)+(((6+cos(t))/7)*((2+sin(8*a))/3)**4)),

colour (R, G, B) = (r/8, (3+sin((a)*8))/5, (3+cos(a*8))/5).

I'm glad I installed the APNG extension for Chrome today, or I wouldn't have noticed that this is animated! It's brilliant, reminds me very much of ferrofluid.

Thanks! That's very serendipitous timing as the image doesn't really work without the animation.

That ferrofluid video is absolutely astonishing. I'd not seen anything like this before, and I agree there's real similarities, so quite a coincidence. That video really is quite brilliant though, so thank you for sharing it.
