Macro by Schmiegel Macro by Schmiegel
Same as previous but it includes some more scene editing:
A colorful color map and Depth of Field applied.
Also ... as time passed by ... the sun has moved a bit ...


What is it?
A digital representation of a 3 dimensional area where an iterated mathematical algorithm has converging results.

Short: a Mandelbulb Fractal :)

Gorgeous! The shells like small dragonteeth. Stone, mineral. Sort of concept of creation of first dragons and dinosaurs!

Ja, überraschend, daß diese Strukturen auch im IFS auftreten können.
Die Rotationen sind scheinbar das Entscheidende. Cocoon ist eine negative A-Box
mit 3 verschiedenen Rotationen - leider nur in Mandelbulber erhältlich, da MB3d
nicht die entsprechende Auflösung ( Darstellungsfähigkeit )hat.

looks gorgeous, btw. what's the term of fractal art? what does raw fractals art mean?
sorry, I'm new dA user, but also noob about those 2 terms :ashamed:
Reply
:iconschmiegel:
Schmiegel Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2012
Thank you & welcome :)

Fractal Art refers to images where fractal renderings play a certain role.
Raw Fractals are images that are shown straight as they come out of the fractal rendering app (except for a frame or signature added later).

At least that's how I treat these terms ;)

so there's actually fractal application? is it a drawing app like photoshop n SAI? or special effect/ phtograph app? or create 3D app? :confused:
haha sorry for asking much, but it's good for me to learn something new, coz I will come accross many of these on here often and it would be embarassing if i still dunno anything later on

Yep, there are many apps that can render fractals. They mostly resemble 3D apps. You will need to pick a formula and tweak parameters to get a nice result.

Try downloading Mandelbulber or Mandelbulb3D. Both give nice results with a few clicks.
If you like the classic 2D fractals I'd guess Fractal Explorer could be a nice starting point :)

Looking at this makes me feel as though I've just washed up on a cloudy beach and found this strange coral structure. I kind of want to crawl inside and nestle in the sand until the storm blows over. :XD:

It's beautiful! :D
