A very mezmorising piece that captures the attention with the extending/ shrinking extensions...the rotation is also mezmorising, but because it gives a sense of function and purpose the whole thing.
The coloring, I think, isn't bad but could be improved. Perhaps a brighter greenish hue for the area around the blue bubbles;
maybe a bright red to really bring out the bubble structures.
I wonder also if you could maybe include some lightning effect; a sunspot or two to give the image an even more three-dimensional feel to it; this is something glistening in the sunlight.
Fantastic work overall!

This is quite a mesmerizing piece! I wanted to say I quite like your color choice. I personally like the splashes of bright blue and white with the more subdued tan and grays. I think if there would have been more bright colors it would subtract from the actual design. To me I wouldn't want my eyes distracted by all of the colors being bright. I've never really sought out this type of art but was drawn to this one when I saw it. I mean this in the best way possible when I say it reminds me of pictures of viruses or similar things under a lot of magnification and then put in motion. I always loved stuff like that. I really enjoy this and think you did a wonderful job bringing out the design aspects without overwhelming it with color. I will admit I don't know the technical aspects behind this so I don't feel comfortable commenting more on that, just the colors and the overall impression. Thanks for sharing this!

This is wild, mind-blowing, I don't find words to express my admiration for what I consider masterpieces of "mysterious art", as I've no idea how this is made !! Awesome, great... You're the master of this type of fantastic, out-of-this world fractals, animated or not !! The "Beast", all his/her "friends" & their surroundings haunt my nights !!

:omfg: This is stunning.

A manifestation of complex geometric abstraction; twisting in and out of fruition.

Kind of looks like magnetically charged pearls with ferrofluid interacting with and around them.

Beautiful work!!! :clap:
