Fractal of the Week | Monte Carlo Edition One: Sky Burst


Happy Monday! Here is another wallpaper, 1600 x 1200 pixels, rendered using the Monte Carlo option for MB3D, which I’m happy to say I finally have the hang of! The image took about a little less than five hours to finish, and from my biased perspective, I dislike it less. The MC process produces fractals with cleaner, crisper definition, and less image noise than the usual, quicker, standard method of rendering. In short, it takes longer, but the images are better for it overall, a sound argument for patience!

Double click the image for the full-sized file.

Fractal of the Week | Egads! Phractal Phearsomosity


G’day. I present another wallpaper from my ongoing project of adapting new parameter files to see better use in their continued evolution, the selective pressures mostly involving a negative correlation between the continued viability of a preset and the time it takes to outlive its productive fitness in producing novel images that I dislike less than those before.

With a few false starts this week, as I must restart the image originally planned for this installment from scratch, I’ve generated the one below. That setback is actually a huge benny in disguise, as I can now not only create it almost from scratch, but I’ll use the Monte Carlo option (from here on, MC) to make said image, now projected as next week’s piece, even clearer and crisper-looking than the original version. Use of MB3D’s MC option takes a long time to render a piece, but the result is in my prior experience with it much better.

This piece is 1600 x 1200 pixels large, and it is my least-disliked of the successful images produced this week. Click to macronormify.

Fractal of the Week | Branching Out


G’day. I’ve a wallpaper this time, 1600 x 1200 pixels, using a preset I’m still fooling around with. I’ve decided that it would be fun to go through the basic fractal types available from MB3D, and familiarize myself with the general and unique properties and patterns of each. I’ll be showing the outcome of those experimentations on this series over the next several weeks. Click to embiggen.

Fractals of the Week | Return of the Bride of the Domains


I’ll be a bit minimalist with text here, with some recent image thumbnails via Fractal Domains…

Fractals of the Week | Attack of the Desktop Horrors


This week, I’m releasing three wallpapers, exclusively on this blog, from three apps, MB3D, Ultra Fractal, and Fractal Domains. Each of them measures 2400 x 1800 pixels, is easily clickable and scalable for a range of desktop backgrounds.

May your days be bright, and your nights clear and starlit! Thank you for clicking on me, and…

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.
