Welp, here it is, the image I had to do over again from February, but I suppose that I may well have had pointed ears (without the arched eyebrows!) when I decided to start from scratch and redo the tile positioning. I named it after a line from a certain narcissistic space captain in an episode of Futurama, as in “Feel that, it’s real velour!”

It’s done. Finis. Over with…and uploaded to my deviantART page as complete raw file for free at 18000×10800 pixels. I’d reconsidered not submitting it as a print and decided in the wee hours of the previous morning to do it anyway so it’s available for that, too.

So there it is, for full-sized raw file (at a hefty 49.1 MB in file space) measuring 5×3 ft printed as-is, to prints in a range of sizes. It’s perhaps the most insanely detailed, and insane-looking image I’ve done yet, but it’s good to have gotten it done so that I could take off the ears and give them back to the elf I nicked them from.

G’day! This week and last, the site has seen a lot of traffic, and that’s always good. So thank you, all who’ve clicked on this site in the last few days, and for the reblogs of my latest book review on The charons, especially you, Ms. Basu! I’ll see about posting a little more frequently before my Three Days of Deep Reading (not quite the week I would’ve liked) begins next week, but we’ll see.

Here I’ve finished this month’s project image, posted on and here linked to my deviantART page. It took about three days to render. It’s offered as a print at 3×3 ft and 300 dpi, or for a free file download, though a hefty one at over 50 MB filespace in size.

You have been warned!

Mandelbulber was working a bit slow this week, but at least that slow processing prevented those annoying distance estimation errors that would have left random black specks on the finished piece! I’ve named this one after a bit character in the second episode of the video series “OCC the Skeptical Caveman.”

I’ve created a few more thumbnails from limit sets, by adding a bit of chaotic behavior to the mix. Here are some of those, with their spiral curves, never quite touching but cool nonetheless. I’ll test out direct manipulation of parts of the code via the compiler built into the software to see what I get, for much larger pieces worth printing as wall hangings.

A confession: Last month’s project image had suffered from misaligned tiles when positioning, so, like the elf I should have been, I scrapped the image and started again from scratch. So far, at 69 tiles out of 240, there aren’t any of them out of place or overlapping with the others this time, and image clarity is good.

This is a good sign.

I’ll post a link to the finished piece when it’s uploaded to deviantART, but doing so in haste is bad ju-ju. That’s what brought me trouble with the first try. The finished piece will be 18000 x 10800 pixels at 300 dpi, or fully printed at 5×3 ft in size. I think that’s worth taking time on. So, here are more products of my diabolically vile experimentation…

The Impudent Algorithm blog may be extinct, but Indra’s Pearls: The Vision of Felix Klein is still in good use. Here, I’ve been playing with limit sets and tilings, and the cool things that can be done with them. Via Ultra Fractal, I’m using a powerful coloring algorithm called Indra’s Pearls Workshop to produce these. Here they are.

G’day! This Thursday I present some of the stranger looking images I’ve done in the past week or two, which I’ll have uploaded to deviantART this morning as full-sized files. Some of these were created at the ROFCON event I attended during a GURPS scenario I was involved in with the gang, and some of the awesome people we met and gamed with there. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with new parameter files for generating these, via MB3D, and this entry shows some of the more curious results of the past few evenings. May you never be swallowed by an attracting fixed point on the complex plane!
