Fractal Art is sometimes a necessity as a break from my photography work which at times overwhelms me, some may even say it has therapeutic values and I can agree. Apophysis is a great fractal software program that is free and simple to use, once you experiment around with it for a few hours you can create some beautiful work fairly easily, though rendering times for a higher resolution sometimes may take awhile depending on what your goals are for printing or other venues.
Swan Dance was one of my first works with Apophysis but not my first try, it did take awhile to get the shape somewhat to where I wanted it and having a program like Photoshop to clean it up a bit or add extra effects helps too at times.
Apophysis is worth the download and will give you many years of creating great artwork and for some- therapy.
