Fractal of the Month | Halloween 2015 – Horrid (Monte Carlo version)


G’day, and a happy Halloween to all those concerned, whatever means you use to celebrate this occasion of dressing up to overindulge in drink, gorge yourself sick on candy, maybe even sitting around telling ghost stories! I’ll be reading Lovecraft‘s “The Dunwich Horror” to celebrate, myself. Here, I offer possibly the most cadaverous-looking, slightly revolting fractal I’ve ever generated, as desiccated as it looks, something like a tapestry woven from things unmentionable for Jack Skellington‘s reading room, or the leather binding for the Necronomicon, and with teeth, too! This is an ugly one, and generated using Mandelbulb 3D‘s Monte Carlo method to clean up any data that shows up as irritating ‘noise’ in the image. This one took over 20 hours to complete, but was worth the time. It’s available as a free download at 3840 x 2880 pixels or a full-sized print on my deviantART page, linked to the image shown here.
