Exactly the same motive as the very old deviation Blowing in the Wind. The difference is that the virtual light comes from the lower left instead of the lower right.

This is a 3D-section of the four dimensional cubic parameter space (the iteration formula is z -> z^3 - 3a^2 z + b), the axis a_imag pointing into the fourth dimension, the 3D-slice is performed at a_imag = 0.3. The red set is a part of M+, the grey set of M-. This is the same 3D slice as in the previous deviation Dance. However in this case, the fractal object is rotated in a different angle.

More about cubics can be read about in my Cubic Tutorial and Short about drawing pictures of cubic parameter space. So also in my Chaotic series.

The image is rendered using a special module for Ultra Fractal, the module written by my very dear friend Greenseng her on dA. All his modules, as well as mine can be downloaded from here. Resized 6400x 4800. Small color adjustments is performed. All this postprocessing by Photoshop.

Below the parameter file Play and have fun :)

I don't know why.. but I love these..
FractalMonster Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
Maybe cause it's a 3D fractal ;) Thank you so much :aww:
Fan-Evelyne Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013
Love the composition of the colours here :)
FractalMonster Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2013
Thank you so much :blushes: That's one my 3D fractals :) BTW, have you heard about fractals before?
Fan-Evelyne Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
You're welcome :)
I believe fractals is math in images? Well, I guess it's a lot more, but that would be the short version. If I'm correct of course.
FractalMonster Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
You are on the right way :clap: Fractal geometry is the math of the new science of chaos and complexity :omg: Below some recycled info about fractals:

First: Check out the zoom sequences (only images) from page 4 in the pdf's [link] and [link] . The end motives are my deviations [link] and [link] :D

Second: In my journal [link] you have some links to short cool fractal animations I stumbled over at YouTube

Third: If you wanna try some free simple fractal software, go to my journal [link] . You don't need to know the math behind :wow:

Fourth: Wikipedia has a nice site [link]

Fifth: Maybe you would appreciate my "Chaotic series of fractal articles" [link] if you have a little theoretical interest ;)

Hope you don't feel spammed ^^;

I don't feel spammed :) and thank you for the information and links, but personally (though I did appreciate yours), I'm more of a traditional girl when it comes to art :)
FractalMonster Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013
My pleasure :D Ooh, I even dunno if I'm a traditional man ^^;

Wow, this is simply beautiful! Very different from your other works, for sure! I love it~
FractalMonster Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013
Really glad you like it ::) That's because it's a 3D fractal. See Artist's Comments. Below you had journals contaninig links to my different kinds of 3D fractals,
