  Did a mod or 2.  Mandelbulb (pine tree version for details) formula, then rotated x-axis (1,0,0) to the magnitude axis (1,1,1), took |xyz variables - fixed amount|*2 (like I've done in the past), and rotated back.  Only add in negative x-pixel component after initial setup.  

  Added a modification on the 4th iteration, within the rotations, before the |xyz-fixed| works a bit nicer.  Took the x= (sqrt(y^2+z^2)- value) *other value, y=(sqrt(x^2+z^2)-value)*other value...  value ~2 (if you just do this, you get a neat little thing that I'll put at the bottom of this).  

  You can throw a rotation into the formula at specific iterations, and this will let you rotate specific parts of the fractal.

 Same color scheme... maybe someday I'll change.

This was the first one:

  Here is the modification, by itself (without the mandelbulb formula included):
