G’day. After spending a day playing hooky from blogging, I’ve been working with new images, this post featuring my latest MB3D monstrosities. Some of the parameter sets for these I’ve kept for further use, but many of these are oneshot pieces. All of these come from custom mandelbox surfaces and there associated Julia sets. I’ve included a full-sized wallpaper as the bottommost image and have released it into the public domain. Click to magnificationate.

G’day, and good week. This installment features some of the stranger results from new parameter sets created in the last couple of weeks. I’ve recently gotten a jukepop.com account both as a venue to pursue my serialized fiction at some point, but also to vote on the stories of one of my favorite bloggers, Sharmishtha Basu, and the three serials she’s posted so far, The Tower, The Strange Island, and a cool little SF story of hers, Harmony. Note: The links go directly to recent or updated chapters.
Things are going well on the study front: I’ve completed half of one course while preparing to move to others. I’ve also been using mnemonic techniques in learning Tamil letters, which is coming along swimmingly. My Bengali books, and the audiodiscs for Tamil syllable and word pronunciation have arrived in the mail, but first things first: I’ll take care of the current language course before moving to the next. In an ideal world I would study all three languages at once, but I do not live in such a world!
So, here are thumbnails of the odder images recently rendered…stay brilliant, or in the Kai’Siri…

G’day. Today I’m posting my favorite piece from the past week, my first real experimentation with fog-effects, which will be going into the next segment of my Mandelbulber tutorials. Image rendering has been slow this week, but productive if not prolific, and represents a major step toward professional quality in use of the software.
I’ve been posting a wee bit too much this week, though on different blogs, so I’ll be spacing out a bit more the posting schedules of each site’s entries from here on. I’ve gotten much done, and I’ve finally gotten the material I need to begin my Indic language studies, beginning with Tamil, and going onto Hindi and Bengali once I space study and practice sessions to sidestep the interference effect. Yes, they are distinct languages, but there are enough similarities to confuse the unwary student if studied at the same time. The Ebooks are already installed in my toys for reading, and I’ve just received notification that the print copy Bengali books I ordered are now being shipped — Yay!
This will be the first time in years I’ve really gotten into studying new languages, from Latin in highschool, Japanese in college, and Tagalog near the end of the 1990s. I’ve always loved learning languages because to be any good at them, you have to learn something of the cultures that speak them, and that’s always cool!
But I’ve rambled enough. Here is the image for this week, at 1200×1600 pixels. Click to ginormify…

G’day. This week, the images don’t have any particular theme, but do share one particular thing in common: The parameters used to generate them used only imaginary numbers as the values in the formula terms. This allows me to take advantage of the cycling effect of powers of the number ‘i’ and also its multiples, leading to some very strange effects and vastly extending Fractal Domains usefulness for the foreseeable future. Here are a few of the results of last week’s tinkering…
