You can use it as a project for personal use. I would even enable a higher res preview for this. I paint some of my fractal projects too, but not what I publish as fractals. Still do not abuse copyrights.

Many thanks Mak!!! I'm happy that you got the message in this picture! Oh, and I don't consider myself a "fractalist". I'm a classic artist by education and do design for living, but yet I do some fractals when I have time.:wave:

For some reason, I see a sail boat and it's sails.

Beautiful!

Absolutely right, there is boats. "Close Reach" is nautical term.

Many thanks Vic!!! Yes, I'm close to make new series. You know, today while rendering and looking for some new shape in a fresh noisy fractal, found a form looking as Jacko with his famous hat. Thought to make a fractal portrait, but next began to search more and lost it. As I'm not so much of a fan of him (yet he is my generation singer)... Anyway, now just I know what layer was, but there are some zillion of shapes. Still will find it, if needed:-)

OK, it´s pretty hard to give a receipt about this kind of fractals. This one is with 26 layers, but the previous 2 have more. Seems I'm getting better and economic :-) It´s more to use UF as a bit limited PShop. Mostly knowledge of layers and blending modes helps. You can do it with any FBM formula. Look at the noise, search for a shape. Dupplicate, make the gradient sharp and next you begin to feed this shape with more layers from bottom and on top too with other layers, some softer, some harder. Use layers from other fractals too, stretch and skew them freely, anything could help to strike out. Also Perlin noses for colors, (take care with these rendered in big). Use transforms as Etienne Saint Amant does, put some as "gravitational lens" to make the noise even wilder, you'll get more artistic results. Your most important work is to find an initial shape to have a theme. Sure u have to use some masks, but not too often, I prefer to make the gradients transparent to isolate parts. That's it, good luck to find interesting shapes.

Cool. I'm new into fractal art and this will help for sure. I like to do raw fractals, and tweaking more on the formula and coloring methods, but your picture really encouraged me into trying some layering. Thanks!!!

Yep, well hombre, como estás de Argentina... and I like a lot this country, where Maradona and Messi were born, if you need help, I'm always here, just drop me a note. Remember UF is just a tool, play with it as you heart wishes. I'm a purist and I don't make fractal manipulations, but I'm not against, anything what may improve your final result counts.
