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.

Fractals of the Week | Strange Fraxinations


These monstrosities are via Frax Pro, reaching their tendrils into the ever-deeper bowels of fractal space in ways that would make Mighty Azathoth itself give pause, though the last pic reminds me of something a bit less eldritch; shells ground smooth by the crashing surf along the sea shore. Hey, it can’t always be Lovecraftian, now can it? These images are 2304 x 3072 pixels in size, and ready to rip — double-click for full size.

Fractals of the Week | Frax-ional Pro-portions


This week’s images are via Frax Pro, being various zoom results of the Mandelbrot set that involved a bit of extra play with motion, texture, and lighting effects, with strange or decidedly odd results. Things are moving along with these, and the app, for iOS, has seen a lot of use since I got my tentacles one it. Those I’ve generated this evening on my ‘Pod will be uploaded to my Tumblr queue, though some will see their first publishing here. I’m looking forward to that, next week, when I’ll be posting an installment of wallpapers, likely from differing apps.

Fractal of the Week: Waves & Tendrils Below


G’day. This week’s image is a wallpaper created via Frax Pro. This one was at once easy to make and difficult to design, and that difficulty involved the texture selected for the image. This one’s embedded directly on this site, free. Just click the image to cromulently embiggen.

Fractals of the Week: Frax the Destroyer


After a week’s hiatus, here are some recent images via Frax Pro. These horrific travesties of form and symmetry are generated from a previously unexplored region of the Mandelbrot set, with much passing strangeness in bio organic curves and textures. Things have been productive in the past couple of weeks.

In the next installment, I’ll post some of the stranger results from MB3D and new Mandelbulber v.1.16 pieces, while I try to wrangle installing Mandelbulber 2 on my Mac without too much frustration. May your nights be large, and your days bright!

Fractals of the Week: 2014.11.19


G’day. This morning, I’ve more recent images courtesy of Frax Pro to show you… These were especially fun to make, though perhaps a bit strange. I tend to avoid overtly psychedelic ones, but there are times when garish colors can be useful in expressing eldritch weirdness and alien horror.

These, though, were mostly generated with an emphasis of texture over bright colors. I’m using some of my free time this week and next for writing the next update on my Indra’s Pearls ongoing fractal mathematics review series over on the Impudent Algorithm for the end of this month.

I’m also bringing back the Caturday’s Astrophenia for this weekend, so that will be fun to work on. Lately, I haven’t done that much in weekend posting…some, but not that often.

Language studies are now properly organized and fully underway, for Tamil, Bengali, and Hindi, (yes, all three) because hey, South Asian stuff is kinda cool and learning new languages is fun and good for the brain.

I’ve set things up so that I can finish these projects in a shorter amount of time than otherwise likely and still avoid the most annoying hazards of the Interference Effect on my learning.

*ahem*

Alright, enough of my silly obsessions…On to the pics!

Fractals of the Week: Papering the Walls – A Tale of Five Apps


I hope the week goes well for you all so far. This time, I’m posting a collection of five 1600 x 900 pixel wallpapers, one from each of the five apps I currently use (I’m fooling around with others as well, but have made little use of them, like the digital art generator Silk.). The order from top to bottom for these by app is Fractal Domains, Mandelbulber, Mandelbulb 3D, Ultra Fractal, and Frax. As you’ve probably noticed with this blog’s theme, that the webpage displays even large images with a maximum width of about 600 pixels, so just click twice on each image to gigantimize it. I’m releasing all five of these as free for all non-commercial use.
