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.
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.
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
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 ...
