Mandelbrot worked on a wide range of mathematical problems, including mathematical physics and quantitative finance, but is best known as the father of fractal geometry. He coined the term fractal and described the Mandelbrot set. Mandelbrot extensively popularized his work, writing books and giving lectures aimed at the general public."
So, like many other fractal artists, I decided to make a fractal in memory of Benoît. The first fractal I made was "Apparition Of Sorrow", which was made in Ultra Fractal using the mandelbrot formula. The mandelbrot-shape itself was not visible in this one because I tweaked the formula a lot, but it was still a mandelbrot fractal. This one was quite popular on DeviantART and I'm pretty happy with it myself :)
A little while after I and many others had posted our tributes to Benoît Mandelbrot, the gallery director of the Fractal Gallery decided to arrange a Mandelbrot tribute contest. The contest required that the Mandelbrot-shape was clearly visible in the fractal, and after weeks of dabbling and tweaking in UF, I finally came up with this: "Inside Mandelbrot's Mind"
Although I didn't win anything, I'm still really happy about this one. All three images are from the same fractal and I put them together in Photoshop. At the time I was obsessed with triptychs and diptychs, so of course it was impossible for me to submit anything else for that contest =D
Been playing around with this one all day, and at last I've got a result I'm reasonably pleased with. I like that it's green and swirly, and I got to use the lake effect! Yay! I love that effect, it looks nice in most fractals, but I try to not use it too often. Couldn't help myself this time though, I had to cover up the lower part of the first layer, because it looked too messy.
I'm still not sure if I will post this one on DeviantArt or RedBubble yet, but we'll see. I used BarnsleyTechno formula and Sech Trap and Wavy Circle Trap colouring algorithms.
I've been trying to make this one work for days now, but I'm not actually getting anywhere. No matter what I do, it still looks mediocre. It's not a horrible fractal, but it's not good enough to post on RedBubble or any other website either. I'll probably open it sometime in the future and try again to make it look nice, but for now I'll just leave it alone. It only makes me angry =P
One of the reasons why I love Zazzle, is that it allows me to put my designs on shoes. There are several different types of shoes to choose between, and you can design for women, men and children. Most of my designs are a bit too girly for the manly shoes (at least I think so), so I usually design shoes for kids and women. Thought I'd share a few of my favourite designs here. There's plenty more in my Zazzle shop!
A fractal I made pretty quickly in UF. Took me about 15-20 minutes to make it ^^
4 layers, BarnsleyTechnoJ formula and Popcorn Plasma colouring algorithm. I'm not going to post this anywhere else, as it's not that good, but I suppose I might be able to make something decent of it in a while. It's always fun to play around with old fractals and see if it's possible to make something good with them =D
This is an odd thingy I made for a challenge on RedBubble, and the theme is outer-space and alien planets, something that could be used as a cover on a sci-fi book. The first price is 20$, so of course I had to enter! After about two days of meddling in UF, I came up with this. It's not my best fractal, and I'm not even really sure if it fits the theme entirely, but what the heck. I posted it anyways xD

Just something I made quite quickly in UF.. I think it took me about 15 minutes to come up with this, and although I kinda like it, I don't think I'll upload it anywhere else. I just wanted to make a gnarl that was good enough to be rendered, and I did. Now I can sleep well tonight xD
Ooo, and my piece "Into the Lake of Ghosts" got ten votes in the gnarl challenge on RedBubble, which was good enough to get in the top ten! Yay! :P
I made this fractal for a challenge on RedBubble..The challenge is to make a gnarly fractal, and I haven't made any of those in a long time, so this was quite fun. I rarely enter challenges/contests, mainly because I find it hard to come up with fractals that fit the themes. If the theme of the challenge is to make something pink and blocky, I'll only be able to make blue and green flowers, etc.
It'll be exciting to see how this challenge goes, because I never win anything xD

This is my first post, and I've decided to start it with a brand new fractal. I made this one last night, but I didn't have time to render it before this morning. I used a fractal generator called Ultra Fractal to make it. The formula I used was General Tent Julia, with a Harlequin II colouring algorithm. At the moment I'm rendering a large print version for my RedBubble and Zazzle accounts.
