Fractals of the Week | Frax-ional Pro-portions


This week’s images are via Frax Pro, being various zoom results of the Mandelbrot set that involved a bit of extra play with motion, texture, and lighting effects, with strange or decidedly odd results. Things are moving along with these, and the app, for iOS, has seen a lot of use since I got my tentacles one it. Those I’ve generated this evening on my ‘Pod will be uploaded to my Tumblr queue, though some will see their first publishing here. I’m looking forward to that, next week, when I’ll be posting an installment of wallpapers, likely from differing apps.

Fractal of the Week: Waves & Tendrils Below


G’day. This week’s image is a wallpaper created via Frax Pro. This one was at once easy to make and difficult to design, and that difficulty involved the texture selected for the image. This one’s embedded directly on this site, free. Just click the image to cromulently embiggen.

Fractals of the Week | 2015.07.16


G’day, and may your week be glorious. This time, I’ve more uploads via deviantART, as I’m waiting for Google’s Deep Dream AI to process one of my fractals submitted days ago. I’ll be posting both before and after pics for the image, but here are some strange ones, available as free file downloads or as prints.

I’m playing with Mandelbulber v.1.16 (bottom image) and Mandelbulb 3D (two top images), as I’m learning new tricks to play with these. I’m also working on new Frax Pro images, playing more with lighting effects, and I’ll be showing those this coming week.

Fractals of the Week: Minions of the Wastes


G’day! Here are more recent uploads to deviantART, both available as prints and as free file downloads. This week has been fertile, as I’m creating new presets for images, including these monstrosities. This week, I’m featuring images via MB3D, which has seen a lot of recent use during self-training sessions and preset experimentation.

Fractals of the Week: Alien Cities, Dark Aeons


Vanakkam. This week, I generated some really huge images, and these are all at 9000 x 5400 pixels in size. They are available as prints and as free file downloads on my deviantART page, and are all rendered from new presets I created over the weekend.

Recently, I had deleted all of my old presets as an incentive to keep things fresh, and am cobbling together new ones to further evolve my art to strange and stranger levels.

I’ve never really been a fan of psychedelic fractals, or the felt black-light posters they’re shown on, and rarely make them.

Mine are mostly eldritch techno-nightmares of things that might be built by some insane genetic engineer or alien architect. So here they are, and as always,

Fractals of the Week: What Odd Dreams May Come…


G’day. I’ve got some strange ones this week, these from two new presets for MB3D, which would make good backgrounds for a desktop or other device. I’ve been experimenting with new parameter files for newer and different images, and there are many false starts and dead ends. There’s been much fun and frustration involved with a good helping of hair-pulling and punctuated by copious expletives in arriving at the finished results.

These two files are available as free PNG downloads at 1920 x 1440 pixels, the first uploaded to the deviantART page for the image, and the second directly to WordPress as a media file, so for that one, double-click to macro-enlargify to full size. They’re hefty in file size, but neither of them exceeding single digits in megabytes.

Fractals of the Week: Rather Odd-Looking Uploads of Dire Strangeness


G’day. I’ve been posting a bit to deviantART this week, so here are a few pieces I’ve uploaded. Right now, I’m generating the digital canvas I’ll use for this month’s mosaic project, so that will be posted when it’s complete at only 64 tiles, not 240 as with the now-cancelled project for last month (the tiles were ruined by poor rendering settings, and would take too long to redo completely). So here are a few really strange ones for your scoping. Enjoy.
