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.

Fractals of the Week: Newton’s Spawn


G’day, this week I bring you new images from my first fractal making app, Fractal Domains. I’ve been fooling about with settings for the app, working with a familiar program in not-so-familiar ways while revisiting my favorite fractal type for this, that employing Newton’s method for finding ratios to calculate Julia sets. With this revisitation, I’m generating for printing purposes new hi-resolution images for my commercial use, and here I offer a glimpse into what these might look like. I’ll be generating new candidates, of at least 300 dpi, for the cover pages of my eBook stories and anthologies once the editing and formatting of the books themselves is complete.

So, here they are!

Fractals of the Week: Frax-ional Values


G’Day, and happy Wednesday. I’ve more images for you by way of Frax today. Over the last few days, I’ve also been experimenting with Mandelbulb 3D’s Big Render option, and I’ve learned enough to write a tutorial on how that works. I’ve also bookmarked a few video tutorials to help with basic operations of the software for those new to it. The draft for the tutorial is already started and should be scheduled for posting this weekend. Well, here are the images. It’s been a great week, and I hope that’s true for you as well!
