Mandelbulb 3D, my process. Over the last few months I have gotten a lot of questions on the process I use to create my images. It has only been about the last year that I feel I am really understanding Mandelbulb and creating more with purpose and not chance. However chance and luck does still come into the creation process. I view what we do as Mandelbulb artists a bit like exploring. I am an artist who has been making art for well over 40 years. All my years of painting and photography does play a roll in how I use Mandelbulb. This is not a tutorial but a look at how I create an image for those that are new to Mandelbulb 3D.Mandelbulb 3D, my process.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are to many artists who inspire me and have shown support here at DeviantArt I could not name them all. Here are a few that I have learned a lot from by looking at their work, studying their tutorials, and analyzing their parameters:

Pamonk birthday presents (call for participation)I want to express my sincere admiration for the amazing artist (and dA-friend) that Barbara (PaMonk) is.Pamonk birthday presents (call for participation)3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
As the day 12th is her birthday I wanted to show this admiration in the form of a present (that is already uploaded to my sta.sh although will be published at 12th → The Winter Palace), so I wanted to share with you this parameters so people can play with them.
You don't have to feel like this is an obligation to tweak, but I feel I should share this parameters to the many fractalists I admire in dA. Sorry if this mentions bother you, the purpose is to give to Barbara an enormous present, not to bother anyone.
Also, I know many of you have your own birthday presents in the making, I don't want to disturbe anyone plans.
Here it is my proposed parameters to tweak:

Now all you Stereoscopic 3D fans (that's the 3D that pops in/out of the screen, not the computer animation one) can submit and browse stereo work from one cohesive category!
Confused? Here’s a quick FAQ:
What is Stereoscopy?
Stereoscopy, commonly known as '3-D' is a method of creating an image which creates an illusion of depth. This works by showing a slightly offset picture to your left eye than your right eye, making things appear further forward or back into the picture!
The new category covers any stereo viewing methods including:
Isolating Structures In MB3DHow to clean up your image background ~Isolating Structures In MB3D3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wow. I haven't done a journal in ages. I thought I would share a little trick for getting a nice clean background when you want to isolate a structure in Mandelbulb 3D. Why? Because sometimes the structures behind the main focus of your image or the main structure are either just small repeats of the main structure, or they are fragmented and in one way or another just not as interesting. Or the background might bury the foreground object in detail or draw attention away from what you really want the viewer to focus on. People strive for a lot of detail, and that's fine, and sometimes it works. But often I find that there's no main focus to frame your point of view. (Edit: I forgot to mention this is made using Mandelbulb 3D version 1.8.2 and I fixed a few typo's!)
Sometimes you're able to focus on the foreground structure through clever use of fog, lights and depth of field settings. Nothing wrong with that either, so this is just another

In this tutorial, I will always use FPS 10. To get the frame numbers for FPS 30, just multiply the given values by 3.
For this tutorial, you will need Chaotica 1.5.2 or above (check website).
Adding the Stars
First, lets add the stars. In the World Editor, add a new iterator. Then, add a new transform to it and replace linear with a small amount of noise:
The amount of noise will change the size of the stars:
1 - Blink by changing the noise amount
Lets say we want our stars blink once a second. This means we will need 2 keyframes a second: the star will need to get big and then back to small in one second.
So, at time 0:
The amount of noise will be 0.005 for example:

FormulasA number of you have asked for my parameters.Formulas3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have copied three below, they are (Asurf Curls) (Asurf Roots) (Asurf Shrooms).
They are what I call 'Raw Parameters'
All formulas and variables are unchanged but I have reset the camera position to default and removed all gradient and lighting effects so don't expect a 'finished image' if you load them up.
Just rotating the camera angle and running the image through C5 is not in my opinion a genuine Tweak, go explore, go look for your own 'Sweet Spot'
If you use any of them then a link back here would be nice.
