Logico Fractatus | Halley’s Method: Pitchfork Infinity

Vanakkam. Here’s a recent image, created using a Halley Julia set and some really cool pseudo-3D effects via Ultra Fractal 6. I’ll be using the original PNG file to make poster prints on my DeviantART account. I dislike how this one turned out less than I might. I grant it a stay of execution…this day!

Logico Fractatus | Quoted in Character: Inaugural Post

Vanakkam. Today, I begin a series of entries involving quotes from my fictional characters who, using their own perspectives in the Gods of Terra setting, capture something of modern scientific skepticism. Future installments get their own title, but since this one uses a recent image, it piggybacks on Logico Fractatus. The image I used for this is a Julia set of the Burning Ship fractal type , via Ultra Fractal 6. Today’s quote comes from one of my oldest Gods of Terra characters, Dasaelos Gurao, Warlord of the Rj’lt’ar species.

Logico Fractatus | “I Shall Call It — Mini-Mandelbrot.”

Vanakkam. Today’s image is courtesy of Frax Pro, here a deep zoom of a border region along the valley of the Mandelbrot set’s main cardioid, the heart-shaped area of the figure located in quadrants one and four on the complex plane. I found this one worth keeping in my files, as I dislike it less than some others generated in the same batch of images. Others shall be relegated to my Bad Fractals folder, or condemned to permanent status as mere gradient maps for coloring better looking images. I’m releasing this piece into the public domain.

Logico Fractatus | City of Quartz: Happy Thanksgiving for 2018!

Next week will see the second installment of Cruel Parodies, my SF critter design series, featuring a twisted, hideous mockery of the official Traveller universe’s freebooting wolves of space, the Vargr, and free of copyright violations. This Thanksgiving day, though, I, bring you a recent DeviantART upload, one of my best fractal transparencies to date, City of Quartz. Enjoy the holiday or whatever other event or festival(s) you celebrate this month, and I’ll see you next week!

Logico Fractatus | Halloweenius

Vanakkam. Here’s a thing I did, something to celebrate my favorite holiday, a few days before it happens. Personally, I think Halloween should be all year long, so here’s a new wallpaper for you. Double-click the image for full size.

Logico Fractatus | Indra’s Spirals [1]

Today’s piece is something I created on Ultra Fractal 6 using the Indra’s Promise formula, and a multi-layered mix of its sub-formulas and color gradients. I’m working on a Halloween-themed image for later this month, so until then or the next post, whichever comes first ….

Logico Fractatus | Fraxations of Gaston [1]

Here’s a wallpaper generated using Frax Pro. It’s of a Julia set from a point in some far off region of the Mandelbrot set, while playing with textures and randomized color mapping. I’ve turned filigree settings down quite a bit, focusing mostly on details. Feel free to use this one, on your phone, tablet, desktop, or your website, as long as that’s for noncommercial purposes. Thanks!
