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 | Gnarly, Dude!


 

I’m currently creating Bad Fractals to go into the folder of the same name, for all of my really awful images created over the years. The method behind that madness involves working backward from the Bad images to discover insights into drastically improving the more passable ones, to discover those “10,000 solutions that don’t work,” and to better the ones that do. I’m saving the parameter sets for each new Bad Fractal created, and in between, I’m also creating those that may not be quite as Bad. One of those is tonight’s image, created by MB3D, using the Gnarl formula type and transparency settings. The image links to the fractal’s page in my DeviantArt gallery. Enjoy!

This time, I’ve a new image, a bit dark looking, from one of my favorite presets. I’ve tweaked it a bit, enlarging the file, changing the color scheme and apparent texture, the lighting, and the results seem to work with this one, though that’s debatable. I may work with this set of parameters for future images, but in different regions and magnifications of the figure used . . . if I don’t decide to restructure the parameters themselves…

This one looks to me just vaguely . . . embryonic as well as having a kind of glassy specularity. I may fool around a bit further in future with this by adding true transparencies, even easier with Mandelbulb 3D than with the old Mandelbulber version I’ve used for previous images.

Fractals of the Week | A Project Titanic


Screen Shot 2016-08-11 at 17.12.20

This week, I’ve a few recent uploads to DeviantART, a set of five made for a project image from recent updates to an older preset, now reconditioned, and much, much improved. I named these after their suggestion of massive humanoids in ornate armor, generated in four different color maps, and in the fifth, joined together as a single massive image. The first four images are wallpapers, 1600×900 pixels in size, the fifth is itself massive, at an enormous 18000×10126 pixels. All five of these are available as free file downloads or prints on their pages in the gallery. Do be careful in downloading that last, as it well exceeds 60 MB in file space! Click each image for its page link.

Fractal of the Month | Fake UFO Pic [1]


Screen Shot 2016-08-11 at 17.55.21

Well, well…I guess aliens use fractals for their ship designs. Allegedly taken from a landing bay in Atlantis under the Bermuda triangle by a reliable witness who got abducted and was lucky enough to have his cell with him at the time. The ETs will be pissed at their onboard security detail of chupacabras and bigfoots who missed it. Powered by a homeopathic generator that fuses hydrogen diluted to nothing in Quantum vacuum for maximum output… 😉

Fractals of the Week | Of Kaleidoscopes & Sunflowers


Screen Shot 2015-11-27 at 13.38.40

This week’s post has kind of a fusion-reactor theme, in keeping with one of the mnemonics from Wednesday’s post, with a set of three recent images. The original piece is first, then a couple of images I ran through Pixelmator for variations on the kaleidoscope and sun glow effects.

MB3d202_PROT

Obviously, this doesn’t look much like a fusion reactor, at least not a working one. It’s from a new preset using a combination of Mandelboxes. Let’s see what changes the effects bring out…

MB3d202_PROT_2

This could bear some work on the shading, particularly immediately about the glow, but it’s not too hideous to look at.

MB3d202_PROT_3

The same for this one, though the purply coloration for ‘petals’ and the glow effect are a good starting point.

Next week, I’ll post more pieces using Newton’s method for finding square roots. See you then!

Fractal of the Week | Brains in Spaaace!

Namaskar. I’ve been busy with study, working on notes, and creating new presets for MB3d now that I’ve finished resizing older ones to economize on file space, and this so far is my favorite of the bunch. It’s a truly alien-looking object that I’ve rendered as a 1600×900 wallpaper. This seems a good starting point for a larger print-sized image. I’m keeping this one’s basic preset with fewer edits than I thought might be needed during this first render shown here. Double-click to embiggen.
