I randomly stumbled across a fun-sounding and neat-looking formula earlier today, and of course I had to try it. This is Crystal Globe (Julia) from sam.ufm. After playing around a bit I ended up using Thin Orbit Traps II colouring algorithm. For texture I made a new layer and added Hexagonal Mapping and then I made another layer and changed the formula to Phoenix Julia from pwc-convert.ufm. I think this looks pretty neat, almost like a drawing. The first picture is the original fractal, and the second picture is a zoomed version of it. Click for bigger view and lots of lovely details!
