Thanks, I love this one really a lot, now will try with the traditional version in my next exhibition
Thanks, that's my favorite fractal along with "At 65 degrees South". Both are presented in my current exhibition.
really super art!
Again I am very impressed. The colours and shapes are both beautiful and powerful.
gone paint this one on a canvas for my house
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.
Today printed some visit cards and used part of this fractal as a background. It prints absolutely perfect.
is amazing what you "fractologists" can do. this is awewome; and, well titled! definately has that nautical feel to it . . . a storm at sea. aloha, Mak
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.
wow! absolutely beautiful!!
Fantastic colors, movement and mood!!!
For some reason, I see a sail boat and it's sails.
Absolutely right, there is boats. "Close Reach" is nautical term.
In a nutshell Superb....
Another winner, Stefano! You're on a roll!
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
Thanks dear for your steady support!!! When I come to Prague we'll go together for a beer for sure!
I really like it... how many layers did you use? Can you provide some little background on how it's made?
Thank you!!! Will answer your question later, as some guests came incidentally, excuse me!
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.
