Shells and flotsam on Rotbox Beach.
Best viewed at max resolution on a 30'' (or more) display :D

Be sure to check out the sand area and find many tiny shells ...

Good job!
You have now an other new watcher :happybounce:
MDB seems an incredible tool...

Thank you, glad you enjoyed the show!
Yep, MB3D is amazing. An infinite amount of variations. But it's dangerous - can cost a lot of spare time ;)

Ah, more MB awesomeness! I really must give it a go. Downloaded and ready to go, but just seems so daunting.

:) Thanks.

Grab some parameters to get start playing with! - 75% can be understood without reading - if you have a bit experience with 3D and graphic apps - otherwise, the ReadMe.txt file is very good!

I have heard it is relatively easy to get started, and I'm comfortable with several 3D packages. I'll probably watch a youtube vid or two to see how an experienced user get around the interface and gets the ball rolling.

Beautiful. It must have taken hours to make this image, the detail is breathtaking.

Thank you - didn't take too long.
That's the strength of fractal images - an 'infinite' level of detail is rendered based on a simple rule/formula

Not too long... impressive, so was this rendered in the same software as generated the model?
Reply
:iconschmiegel:
Schmiegel Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013
Yes, it's a fractal renderer with quite good 3D render capabilities - including Depth of Field and a good simulation of hard shadows.

Yes I was impressed with the quality of the rendering, although looking at the DOF I'd taken it for being put in with postwork by yourself. Some quality of the softness gave me that impression. So, excuse my ignorance, what is the name of the software? Mandelbulb3D? I've experimented a bit with that, but didn't get such nice renders out.

Schmiegel Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2013
Yep, these are done using Mandelbulb 3D. In case you think about playing with it I'd recommend to grab some nice parameters and fool around with them. The #mandelbulb3d group features plenty of images with params like e.g. this
Starting from scratch could cause some frustration as you might face just 1000 variations of noise ;)

Thanks for the tip. I enjoyed playing with Mandelbulb 3D just at random, it is a nice piece of software to play with, but I didn't know it could do such good renders.

Thank you - I was surprised my self when I stumbled into this scene. :)
This structure is just a happy accident made from a unique combination of about 20 sliders values - infinite possibilities - zero control ;)

But that slider shifting can be much fun - a bit like digging for gems in a desert ...

I see a lot of "floaters" en lieu of another term. Not sure if you meant for that or not. Still, a very cool render Schmiegel. :)

Thank you - removing the floaters would be some really nasty work - I preferred to let them float ...
To speak in beach terms: it would be some foam :)
