Sick and miserable

I've somehow managed to catch a cold, just in time for my mid-semester break. Oh joy! I have no idea how it happened, I went to sleep last night feeling fine, and then I woke up today with a terrible headache, sore throat and fever. I even dreamed that I had a headache! I also dreamed that I was making volcanic cupcakes out of sand and cinnamon while running up an endless escalator trying to steal my boyfriend's castle. Anyway, here's something random I slapped together in Ultra Fractal last night. I can't remember what formula I used and I'm too lazy to check, but I know I coloured it with Painter's Traps(tma.ufm).

Floral Dreams

Another quickie fractal, the first one in a few days.. I haven't felt like making any fractals, I've tried to focus on studying and finishing my essays. Not that I've actually gotten that much work done, I have a tendency to end up watching movies or playing Secret of the Stars instead. Oh well, at least I'm trying =P Just one more week now and then it's mid-semester break! An entire week off! Not that it makes that much of a difference though,  I'm only at the university three days a week anyway. Hopefully I'll manage to finish two of my essays during the break and start on the last one. Would be nice to be able to focus on studying for my exams. But, enough school-stuff for today.
This is a Round Julia formula(mtc.ufm) with Thingamajigs II(tma.ucl) and Hypocycloid Trap(jam.ucl) colouring.

Futuristic Design

Nothing much to say about this one, it's just another quickie Sine-Mod_III fractal. I think it looks metallic, bloody and futuristic ^^
I used the Ducky Revisited M (ea.ufm) formula.


Quickie fractal! It took me maybe 15 minutes to slap this one together. I think it looks like fingerprints mixed with sunset and orange juice, but that might just be because I'm really tired at the moment.
Scaled Ikenaga Newton (reb.ufm) and Thin Orbit Traps II (tma.ucl). Enjoy!

Cubic Roots animation

Finally, more animations! I've been waiting for ages for the Cayley Mandel animation to finish rendering, and unfortunately the result is not as awesome as I hoped. The colours are a bit messed up and the end could have been a lot better. I feel like I always zoom in on the wrong parts of the fractal.
Oh well, at least the Cubic Roots Julia animation turned out pretty nice. Spirally, trippy fun ^^

Sand And Mercury

This one is from the same fractal as Bloodshed part 2, just with different colours and slightly changed textures. The title is from a The Gathering song ^^
Phoenix Julia(standard.ufm) and Sine-Mod_III (tma.ucl).

Bloodshed part 2

I had some fun with Sine-Mod_III today, and I ended up with a fractal that was somewhat similar to Bloodshed. I made two versions of it, and they pretty much look the same except for a few small details. I prefer the first one though.
The formula is Phoenix Julia. Enjoy! =)

Spiky zoom

Here's my second Slope Barnsley zoom! I like this one a lot more than the other one, the colours are nicer and it just looks cooler. Spiky, stingy, shiny Barnsley ^^
The formula used is Slope Barnsley 1 ManJul (sdc.ufm)

Trippy Easter Eggs

I.. I don't really know what to say about this one. It's strange-looking and not particularly pretty, but at least it's not as painful to look at as the last fractal I made. This is another Sine-Mod_III(tma.ucl) fractal, with Slope(Cubic Roots-Julia) (reb.ufm). I love Sine-Mod_III, simply because it's so weird and versatile. It works well with pretty much any formula, and I always end up with something funny-looking when I use it. I think I might make a post showing all my Sine-Mod fractals later :)
Anyways, enjoy! Click for a bigger view with lots of delicious details!

Today has been a pretty crappy day.. I had to get up at 8 (way too early!), walk to the university for my 10 am religion lecture and then wait 3 hours for my history lecture. I forgot to buy bread yesterday, so I only had a banana, some cashew nuts and an apple for lunch (I'm too poor to buy sandwiches). By the time the history lecture started I was feeling dizzy and had a horrible headache, but somehow I managed to get through it without my brain exploding. I even managed to stop by Tesco to buy dinner on my way home!
Unfortunately, not even a yummy dinner could make my day better. My malfunctioning brain still hurts and I haven't been able to do anything productive at all. I've only played 'The Secret of The Stars' on my SNES emulator and made a quickie fractal. I'm not sure how I feel about the fractal because the colours actually hurt my eyes. Oh well, I think this is enough whining for today. This fractal was made with Rolf Freericks' Spider formula and Sine-Mod III colouring. Enjoy!

Barnsley zoom

I was planning on posting the Cayley Mandel animation first, but for some reason that one is still rendering, so I'm just gonna post this animation instead. This is a Slope Barnsley 1ManJul fractal, and to be honest it's not the most exciting zoom I've done so far. The colours are a bit boring and the video is kinda slow, but I do like that it looks 3D. I'm rendering another zoom of this fractal right now, and I think that one will be better than this. =P

My animations are still rendering, and I have a feeling they will take a few weeks to finish. The rendering time appears to increase everytime I check how much is left, soon it'll probably be 60 000 hours or something..Oh well, at least rendering png. files only takes 20-40 minutes. Here's a little quickie fractal I made earlier today. I noticed that this month's Ultra Fractal challenge on DeviantART is to make a fractal with only Sine-Mod III colouring, and I decided to give it a try. 
Scaled Ikenaga Newton formula (reb.ufm) and Sine-Mod III (tma.ucl).
