I had a new idea for some more images (I guess I’m just bored): I’ll try to make one image for each formula in the UF collection. If the formula doesn’t have much stuff to be changed, I might try a zoom and see if it works. If these formulas don’t give me a decent image they won’t be used, and just images that use a formula that can be altered (i.e. have their parameters changed) will be used. The images will be named after the formula that was used. One layer images only.
Update 08/12: About 10-12 images are done. I might post these individually, or grouped by formula collection or something. A bunch of formulas were useless so far, but I’m just in the first 2 or 3 collections yet, there’s much more to come. Lots of these images are very very abstract or “classic” fractals, but some are really good for my tastes.
It’s been a while, but new images will appear soon. I won’t be restrained to galleries and X images per gallery. I will be posting images and galleries as I want.
Many thanks to the guys at Orbit Trap to have quoted my opinions, to slightly discuss them and more, to understood them perfectly. I’m more than anything learning to be honest with my own feelings (artistically and in everything else) so whatever I’ve said here about my disappointments with fractal stuff in general that was repercuted by Orbit Trap is absolutely true. Whenever I say I am hating Apophysis for example, I really do. But I’m hating the Deviant kind of Apophysis – the mass-produced, randomized thing.
I don’t have any personal or commercial links to any of these people (from the evil or the good side of the force) so I just said what happened to me and my creative process during all these years and how to following the self-similarity flock was making me a worse artist and making extremely bored. And I think I could only understand what was going on when I read these posts at Orbit trap pointing me to some obvious things that most people (comfortably) refuse to see, better still have your comment box filled with friends pats on the back than making something you’re enjoying.
I’m touching some sensitive fields now I guess trying the Mandelbulb images (and I’m starting to like them despite hating it at first), as they seem to be the latest hit of the moment, but as there isn’t much of a community or group dedicated to that (not that I have seen) except the few posts at the Fractal Forums neither too many tutorials in the common corporate fractal galleries, which I try as much as possible not to read unless i’m looking for a fix for a problem, I am a bit “isolated” from whatever kind of “style trend” in Mandelbulbs that might be en vogue (sorry for the french) so far and I’m very pleased with the images I’m making even though I can make only an image a week or something. I see a lot of posts mentioning “whipped cream”, “cathedrals” etc. etc. but I have no idea how to do that neither I want to do that kind of thing. I’m using Mandelbulb 3D just like when I first started Fractint: using my instinct. I liked what I did? OK, I’ll save and post. I didn’t like? Let’s start again.
