Another fractal. It’s completely different, but the concept is very similar to the tree.

Make a sphere
Make three smaller ones, touching it, at 0, 120, and -120 degrees
Repeat step 2 for each of these three until you can’t see them any more (in this case, 9 layers)

The red background is a plane, and the black […]

The tree is a fractal. Basically, it goes like this:

Make a cylinder
At the top of it, make two smaller ones, separated by an angle of 60 degrees (30 each from the previous layer)
Repeat step 2 for each of these two until you can’t see them any more (in this case, 13 layers)
