An On-going Series of Interviews with the Group's Contributors


This interview with the group's contributors focuses on bib993 - Jérémie :iconbib993:

HILLTOP by bib993          Infinitybubbles by bib993           3D burning ship by bib993


XtremeFractals:  Jérémie, if you don't mind answering a few personal questions, what can you tell us about yourself?   How old are you?

Jérémie:  38

XtremeFractals:  What is your profession?

Jérémie:  I’m a business developer in an enterprise software company.

XtremeFractals:  Where do you live?

Jérémie:  I live in Paris, France.

XtremeFractals:  Are you married or in a long-term relationship? If so, what do they think of fractals?

Jérémie:  I’m married, with one child. My wife is not a big fan of fractals, but she understands this is my passion and is patient and compassionate! I have done fractal workshops at my son’s school. He likes them.

XtremeFractals:  What other major interests do you have apart from fractals or graphic arts?

Jérémie:  I like traveling with my family, sports, and reading.

XtremeFractals:  A look at your gallery bib993.deviantart.com/gallery/ shows that you are primarily using Mandelbulb3D software.  How long have you been using Mandelbulb3D?

Jérémie:  I've been using Mandelbulb3D since very early versions, and I was a beta tester. In fact, I started to play with the mandelbulb and the mandelbox in Ultrafractal thanks to formulas by MakinMagic, and Mandelbulb3D came later.



XtremeFractals:  What about Mandelbulb3D keeps your interest?

Jérémie:  Mandelbulb3D is a great tool to produce images, videos, and most lately I've been voxel export for 3D printing. This is the variety of features and the versatility of Mandelbulb3D that have made me use it for so long. But it’s been a while since the last update, not even sure if there will be new versions in the future.

XtremeFractals:  How did you first discover Mandelbulb3D?

Jérémie:  That was probably when I saw the early posts from Jesse, the programmer, on fractalforums.com. The first Mandelbulb3D images I posted there date back from June 2010. But actually I did my first images and videos of the Mandelbulb in 2009 a few weeks after the folks on fractalforums discovered the formula. I've closely followed all the developments that led to the discovery of the Mandelbulb and the new generation of fractal rendering engines.

XtremeFractals:  What other fractal generation software interests you?

Jérémie:  I've just started to play with Incendia EX VI. I’m still at the beginning of the learning curve, but the potential for 3D printing seems higher than with Mandelbulb3D. The fractal modeling style (baseshapes + transformations) and the rich 3D mesh export features make it a must in my toolbox. Sometimes you don’t feel inspired anymore, and that was my case with Mandelbulb3D recently. So I’m glad I found Incendia to re-boost my creativity while continuing in the 3D printing direction.

Coming from Mandelbulb3D, for a long time I wanted to try Fragmentarium because of the GPU calculations essentially and apparently greater flexibility too. But you never know how things unfold in the fractal area, and each time I've tried Fragmentarium I've found it very powerful but not super intuitive a maybe a bit too complex for me, with some scripting for instance. So I've never been really hooked. I had also tried Incendia several times in the past but I've never been a big fan of the IFS or flame modeling style (chaos game, triangles, transforms, etc…).

Well, until, in discussing with nic022 about modeling for 3D printing, I tried it again, and that was the right time, because Aexion has just release a new version that incorporates a new and very powerful way to combine and control transforms. It’s called the Blocks interface and it offers a great deal of control and flexibility, something that was not possible before, and that should prove to be very useful to design 3D meshes almost ready for 3D printing. As a test to get myself up to speed with the modeling workflow, I tried to model in Incendia the "pseudo-kleinian" style which is well known in Mandelbulb3D, and I succeeded after a few hours of play, even if the modeling logic is pretty different. Here is the image: bib993.deviantart.com/art/Old-…

For those of you who like Mandelbulb3D and to play with formulas (re-order them, change the number of iterations, etc…or play with the IFS fractals), then I strongly suggest to try the Blocks interface of Incendia. www.incendia.net/wiki/index.ph…

I’m not yet totally convinced on the render quality, but that’s probably a matter of time and practice. Incendia has definitely more to it than powerful modeling and 3D mesh generation.

XtremeFractals:  What type of hardware do you use?

Jérémie:  I've got a core i7 PC from 2012. I’d like to stress that doing 3D prints has changed my way to see fractals, by entering the real world. The first step that made this all real was when I started to print images. Fractals weren’t virtual anymore. But 3D printing brought a whole new dimension (the 3rd one!) in a sense that the hardware dimension is critical (the 3D printers themselves), probably more critical than in 2D printing. In addition, 3D prints manual post-processing can also be factored in, in which case I could count as hardware all the various tools I use to craft my sculptures and bring them a final human touch.

XtremeFractals:  How did you discover DeviantArt?

Jérémie:  I knew DeviantArt from fractalforums.com. But In the beginning I was more interested by the “geek” dimension of fractals, that kind of a video game with mathematical rules that could produce funky graphics. Fractalforums was the right place and for a while I did not see any interest in creating a DA account. Everything was happening on fractalforums. Then when people started to encourage me about my images and when I realized this could be considered as an art form, I created an account on DA, and that help me quite significantly get more exposure.

XtremeFractals:  You've been a member for over 3 years. Is it still interesting and why?

Jérémie:  DA is a fun place, people are very nice overall. I like the social network aspect, groups and such. I like to check my messages, to give and get feedback, and that’s my preferred platform for posting my works -images and photos-, Youtube and Vimeo being the ones for videos.

XtremeFractals:  What would you like to see from XtremeFractals?

Jérémie:  A folder for 3D printed fractals!

XtremeFractals:  That's an easy fix -  I just created it and moved some existing posts into it.  Looking forward to more entries there.

A lot of us are digital pack rats. Can you send us the earliest fractal you have on file for us to see?

Jérémie:  I have had several fractal periods in my life (I started in 1988), but I kept images only from the last period (and the most intense) that started in 2009:
www.fractalforums.com/index.ph…
Also check my first fractal video ever, from January 2009, basically testing the animation mode in Ultrafractal with a Menger cube. My first fractal video was already in 3D! www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXcTv4…
And this was my first post on fractalforums, about the Levy dragon: www.fractalforums.com/meet-and…

XtremeFractals:  What is your favorite fractal image you've done - and why?

Jérémie:  I don’t have a favorite. I have a collection of favorites, and in general, the most recent are the highest on the list. I could say the best will always be the next one, but I don’t even know if and when there will be a next one now that I do almost exclusively 3D printed sculptures and jewels and almost no images anymore.

XtremeFractals:  What is your favorite fractal by another artist?  Why?
For a long time it has been “Furnace” Furnace by Aexion by Aexion, kind of ironic that I start to play with Incendia so lately! But actually if I think in terms of influence upon my fractal path, that would be all the black and white images and the Mandelbrot zoom sequence by Dr. Peitgen & Richter in the book “The Beauty of fractals” that made me discover them in 1988. I highly recommend this cult book, I still have the original 1986 1st edition at home! It’s been reprinted: www.amazon.com/The-Beauty-Frac…

XtremeFractals:  What off-site groups do you enjoy?

Jérémie:  I’m a member of 2 associations of mathematical art: the European Society for Mathematical Arts, and Ars Mathematica which is focused on digital sculpture and 3D printing, and I meet with members regularly.

XtremeFractals:  On your profile page is a journal that mentions the use of your art for your friend Dylan Howard, a filmmaker in New York. What can you tell us about that?

Jérémie:  He contacted me because he wanted to use some fractal backgrounds in his short movie. We discussed how it would fit in the story and we ended up with a portion of video in addition to a couple of backgrounds. I felt the ambiance of the movie and the story he was telling married very well with the style of my video "Like in a dream", as the concept of dream was the centerpiece. King of Oneiros is the king of dreams.

XtremeFractals:  You create amazing animated fractals. Is there a viable commercial potential for animated fractals?

Jérémie:  Glad you like them! Not sure it’s possible to make a living with fractal videos only, but as with any computer graphics design system there’s always a potential and many possibilities: music, movies, documentaries, installations, art shows…

Swap tree by bib993          At the borders of the imaginary by bib993

XtremeFractals:  Have you had showings of your work in public galleries or installations?

Jérémie:  Yes, I have shown my work (images, sculptures and videos) in personal exhibitions, modern art & science fairs, contemporary art galleries, public galleries, and even in a museum with MANDELWERK in Sweden! And my videos have also been shown on TV in a Japanese conceptual design program and in digital art events and shows in Brazil, US, and several countries in Europe.

XtremeFractals:  Do non-digital artists respect fractal art?

Jérémie:  I think whether you like or are indifferent to fractals doesn't depend on if yourself you’re an artist or not. From what I've seen, yes, many non-digital artists do respect art made with fractals geometry. Maths and sciences have always contributed to art in many ways. Fractals and computers are just new tools to contribute.

XtremeFractals:  Do you think that fractals will ever be considered a serious art form?

Jérémie:  Probably not fully as an art form, but rather as an art medium, an artistic instrument. To me, fractals cannot be compared to cinema, painting, sculpture, or music. They are on a different level. Fractals are a mathematical design tool that can find purpose in any other art forms. What is usually called fractal art is actually computers and fractal geometry applied to painting; it’s not a new art form. It’s a kind of 21th century painting, with different tools than traditional painting. Same thing between fractal videos and cinema, and between fractals 3D printing and sculpture. 3D printed fractals are not a separate art form, they're just a branch of sculpture that uses maths, computers and 3D printers instead of stone and carving tools.

XtremeFractals:  Do you consider fractals a serious art form?

Jérémie:  Fractals are a technique, not an art. Any artist has several tools and techniques at his disposal. A filmmaker can use different cameras and actors, a painter different paints and paintbrushes, why not computers or fractal geometry, a musician has a variety of instruments, and so on…Fractals are just one of these instruments, paintbrushes, or camera lenses. They aren't an independent art form. They’re everywhere, they’re common to all art forms. Some contemporary artists occasionally make use of fractal geometry in their works, but they also do many other great things with different tools and methods. So, I do not consider fractals an art form in itself, but I definitely consider them a serious technique to make art.

XtremeFractals:  You have also created physical, 3D-printed art sculptures. Please tell us about that. How successful has the sale of these pieces been? Do you see that as more than a hobby?

Jérémie:  I essentially do these objects for my own pleasure, and I'm open to show them in exhibitions. I have some pieces shown at French May 2014 exhibition in Hong Kong Polytechnic University with Ars Mathematica, some others are shown at a local art gallery where I live, and one piece has been awarded as a trophy at a mathematical literature contest. Having played with 3D fractals to produce images and videos was already good, but not enough. The tangible aspect was missing. Even with stereoscopic vision, 3D fractals were not real enough. I had to give life to them, virutal 3D had to become real 3D. I knew some innovative technologies could help. I had heard for a long time about 3D printing as an engineering technique: additive manufacturing, also known as rapid prototyping, but I had not realized the possibilities in terms of materials, cost and accessibility until I stumbled on a video on Youtube end of 2012. At that time I thought that it would cost thousands of euros to produce a sizable fractal piece in metal (I was not too far from reality) and that it was complex to get access to professional machines. But I was not aware of the possibilities with cheaper materials, and the ease of use via companies like Shapeways that 3D print the object for you. You just have to upload a 3D printable file. Since then, I did my study and research, by exporting voxels from Mandelbulb3D and converting them into printable meshes (not so easy!). I’ve tested several print sizes, materials, different plastics, resins, metals like steel, and even bronze, gold plated brass and sterling silver to create fractal pendants and earrings. I’ve also explored the post-processing techniques for each material: painting, polishing, varnishing, etc…So it’s a little more than a hobby because I’ve got this shop on Shapeways site for fractal fans who wish to purchase sculptures and jewels in different sizes and materials, but it’s nowhere near to a real business. First and foremost, combining 3D fractals with 3D printing is to me like a permanent research, a passion for experimentation that I share with MANDELWERK who also makes awesome 3D printed fractals. It’s a great recipe that combines the power of the latest manufacturing technologies with innovative computer graphics tools, also with a drop of social networks and collaboration, and a final touch by the human hand. All ingredients to make an art of the 21st century. Fractals are just one element of the story. It’s not about fractal art. It’s about digital sculpture with mathematics as the raw material.

XtremeFractals:  What sites do you use to sell your art?

Jérémie:  Some images on DevianArt have the print option enabled. If not, I can enable it on request. And my 3D printed sculptures and jewels are available on www.shapeways.com/shops/3Dfractals.

XtremeFractals:  You have won awards, created movies, printed and sculpted fractals - what are your goals for fractal art going forward?

Jérémie:  I always have several projects cooking. The next big one is to release an art book. I have a publisher, the content is almost ready, hopefully it will be published this year, printed in a couple of thousand copies and distributed in France and maybe in other European countries. I will also probably be working on a new range of fractal jewels now that I begin to understand the potential of Incendia to produce high quality 3D printable 3D fractal meshes. At least, to begin with, I’ve got a special order for a jewel and a particular model in mind, so that’ll help me get going and exploring that software. My goal is to keep on having fun!

XtremeFractals:  What would you like to achieve with fractal art?

Jérémie:  I hope to surprise others and to stimulate their imagination, like it does for me. There are also some other implications and relations that I will speak of in my book.

XtremeFractals:  Do you see fractal art having a place in the virtual reality scene?

Jérémie:  Computer graphics in general have a place there, and fractals are part of it, so definitely! I haven’t explored that path very intensively, but fractals are so versatile that they can be used in any place that needs original graphics, even more so in a digital world like virtual reality.

XtremeFractals:  Jérémie, thank you so much for the effort and time spent communicating with us.  Very inspiring - you have been at the cutting edge of so many innovations - particularly involving Mandelbulb3B and 3D printed fractals. Thank you again for sharing your experiences and viewpoints with us.

Fractals in Nature or Nature in FractalsHere is a Feature as part of the :iconcommunityrelations: Project Educate: Fractals Week 2011!
By now you may be knowing what Fractals are...so many other features here explained it clearly...so I'm not going to define it....
In one of his speeches, Mandel Brot, Father of Fractals, explains how he construct the geometry of things which have no geometry....
..ie, shape of Clouds, shape of Coast lines, shape of trees etc...He named it as Fractal geometry!
Self similarity is the main characteristic feature of these naturally occurring things around us...If you observe the structure of our Lungs,
structure of our Nervous System & Structure of Blood vessels we can see this phenomenon.
So we can say that we are breathing through our Fractal Lungs!!! Our blood is flowing through Fractal Veins etc...
In short Fractals are there in nature and we Fractalists try to create nature through Fractals using different Fractal generating programs....
Here are some examples....

My little contribution to the Project goes in this article. The main theme is: tweaks, tweakers and tweaking! I’m covering Apophysis program but feel free to read the article to the end to get a general idea of tweaking. :)
To tweak or not to tweak, that is the big question.
First of all, what is that strange word tweaking?
I guess since fractal art began, the programmers of the fractal programs have created formulas and plugins and a lot of resources to use to create the beauties we are, now, so delighted to see. With the expanse of fractal art, other fractalists decided to share their discoveries in form of tutorials or in the for

Fractal Flowers for "Project Educate Fractal
Hello there fellow fractal artists and fractal lovers!! This week is "Fractal Week" holded by projecteducate :la: and this article is part of my lil contribution :giggle:
Today we will talk about “Fractal Flowers”, but first what is a fractal?
- A fractal has been defined as "a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole. The term fractal was coined by Benoît Mandelbrot in 1975 and was derived from the Latin fractus meaning "broken" or "fractured”. While fractals are a mathematical construct, they are found in nature, which has led to their inclusion in artwork. (Wikipedia)
So, fractal can be found in nature but at the same time nature can be found in fractals! One of the most representative natural shapes we see in fractals are flowers, and lets gonna be serious who doesn’t like

What is the first thing that makes you attracted to Fractal Art?
i was looking for a background on google
Fractals The Art of Trial and ErrorI remember the first time I attempted fractal art. I wasn’t even on DeviantART at the time. I was talking to some friends over the internet, and one of them, a moderator at the time, was starting a community project to make a fractal tarot card deck. It occurred to me that out of the many artsy things I’d tried, fractals were not among them. I immediately downloaded some programs and started learning.
Platinus offered tons of times to show me the ropes, but I’ve always been the self-learner type, and most of what I know was learned through trial and error. I figured out how to manipulate the transforms in Apophysis, I was able to understand what variations did what, and I taught myself how to make things the colors I wanted them to be.
I learned the hard way about parameter files and what to save. I actually deleted some of my parameters without even thinking because I thought it was a useless file taking up space. I lost some more later due to a computer crash that
Project Educate Fractal WeekHi my name is Light and i am a fractalholic......oh wait ….wrong meeting!
  
Hello!  Welcome to Project Educate Fractal Week. My mission this week is to try and explain what fractal art is, show you some programs used to create fractal art, and get you totally addicted to it like I am.
“What is Fractal Art?” i could copy something straight from wikipedia...or get one of my well versed fractal friends to give me a technical answer but....that’s just not my style..
I don’t really understand the “math” behind fractal art. I don’t want to. I just want the tools to make beautiful images. Platinus once told me “ a painter doesn’t really have to know what’s in the paint or how the canvas was made to be able to create beautiful work”  so I live by those words. If you have been thinking about trying fractals but stopped because you don’t know anything about the math requir
Project Educate - Epic World of Fractal Art~WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF FRACTAL ART~
What is a Fractal?
A Fractal is a digital artwork that is based on parametres and formulas that are based on mathematics(Geometry). The name „Fractal“ comes from the latin words „fractus“ (fractured, refracted) or „frangere“ (to break into pieces).
Benoît Mandelbrot
The one who coined the term of „Fractal“ was Benoît Mandelbrot. He was a Mathematician born on 20th of November 1924 in Warsaw and died on 14th of October 2010 in Cambridge/US. He  contributed a lot to the thematic of financial mathematics, theoretical physics and chaos science. But the highest popularity he gained with being the father of Fractals.
What is Fractal Art?
Fractal Art is , like name says, Art made from Fractals :D Too simple? Well You can create a Fractal and call it Art and you can create several Fractals and stick them together and call it Art – in either way – Fractal Art i

Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals # 15

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 23, 2012, 7:23 AM
Did you miss the series? I have missed it too, but I thought it would be a good idea to have a break from it until I found some inspiration again. You guys never stop to amaze me, I get new and fresh works, journals and tutorials in my inbox every day, and now I thought I should share it with you. First some news from DA's fractal corner.

raysheaf is planning a tutorial on how to make realistic shapes using concentric circles in UF. Be sure to add him to your watch list if you want this tutorial in your inbox! fav.me/d4t8eug
Light has challenged Chiara with this one:Waiting for Chiara by SuicideBySafetyPin and I think it's a great idea! It's not like the usual parameter pongs, but a co-operation between two artists with different styles, where the result shows off each artist's style. Just imagine Leichenengel's colourful psychedelic style with :devjimpan73: metallic spirals and shiny gems. Or LeonieZurakowsky's colourful plastic mandelbulb shapes with kr0mat1k's quirky metallic bulbs. Just throwing out the idea, if someone want to go together and make a fractal, I'll feature it here!
Don't forget to read guagapunyaimel's interwievs with MichaelFaber OutsideFate and esintu fav.me/d4tj6vy , fav.me/d4st6zy and fav.me/d4s69av
New updates to apo is here: : fav.me/d4to7z3
The deadline forheavenriver's UF challenge: fav.me/d4rhp11 is near! Don't miss it:la:

And  I stumbled upon this journal by killythirsk An event for Indonesian fractal artists is to be held soon. Read about it here:killythirsk.deviantart.com/jou…

That's the gossip, here's some of the beauties from the fractal gallery:

Here is the series again. Seems like the title issue is almost fixed. And gosh, there are a lot of goodies to show off!  I wasn't sure if I should submit it via my ordinary journal, or sta.sh writer. But it could be good to have a clear difference between my ordinary silly journals and ehm.. more serious features. Nuff squabbling. Back to business!

August Artisan Crafts DD Roundup

Sun Sep 2, 2012, 11:02 PM
Wow how fast the time passes! I can't believe this is already my third roundup, I'm actually very happy with this month's DDs :) I think I received a lot of great suggestions for unusual crafts, and I was able to feature some of the most obscure and under-recognized crafts. Please keep the awesome suggestions coming! :la: Remember that I'm specially interested in the original, different and non-ordinary crafts ;) of course I love and consider all the suggestions, but I want to get all the crafts out there. This week I'm looking for etching, knitting, embroidery and clothing.

I want to represent all the Artisan Crafts equally, so if you think that any area is not being properly represented please let me know! I think I got a good mix this month, what do you guys think? :)

Useless fact: I tried to pick one as my "DD of the month" and I couldn't choose my favorite, I love everything so much :heart: what would you choose?

My first video tutorial!

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 12, 2012, 7:56 PM


I just uploaded my very first video tutorial of hopefully many to come. Please go and watch it, subscribe, leave a comment, fave it, give it thumbs up, bla bla bla.  Please leave me suggestions for my next video tutorial IN YOUTUBE, not here, I want all the suggestions to go there so my head doesn't explode trying to keep up with both.




Mega huge thanks to my sweet boyfriend Oka for doing all the editing! He actually learned how to edit videos for me, what a sweetie! Next time we'll try recording voice overs, I just have to find a quiet moment... which is hard to do when you have a dog, 6 cats and 2 siblings.

I made waffles to practice making videos, editing, and stuff... I'm glad I chose something easy, I had to record it three times. Also since waffles were the first thing I made out of polymer clay, and my first clay tutorial and my first DD, it sort of made sense in my head to make it my first video too.

Just a small reminder that I haven't forgotten about the contest, I'm planning it because I want to make something that allows everyone to join, not just clayers xD so don't despair, it will happen! :la:

See you soon :salute:


Everything will be all right in the end. If it's not all right, then it's not the end.

Proud Native American Repost

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 29, 2011, 12:18 PM
For a subject worked and reworked so often in novels, motion pictures, and television, American Indians remain probably the least understood and most misunderstood Americans of us all.

American Indians defy any single description.  They were and are far too individualistic.  They shared no common language and few common customs.  But collectively their history is our history and should be part of our shared and remembered heritage.  Yet even their heroes are largely unknown to other Americans, particularly in the eastern states, except perhaps for such figures as Chief Joseph and his Nez Perce warriors of the 1870's, Osceola and his magnificent, betrayed Seminoles of the 1830's, and possibly Sacajawea, and Shoshoni "bird woman" who guided the lost Lewis and Clark expedition through the mountain passes on Montana.

When we forget great contributors to our American history-when we neglect the heroic past of the American Indian-we thereby weaken our own heritage.  We need to remember the contributions our forefathers found here and from which they borrowed liberally.

When the Indians controlled the balance of power, the settlers from Europe were forced to consider their views, and to deal with them by treaties.  The pioneers found that Indians in the Southeast had developed a high civilization with safeguards for ensuring the peace.  A northern extension of that civilization, the League of the Iroquois, inspired Benjamin Franklin to copy it in planning the federation of States.

But when the American Indians lost their power, they were placed on reservations, frequently lands which were strange to them, and the rest of the nation turned its attention to her matters.

Our treatment of Indians during that period still affects the national conscience.  We have been hampered by the history of our relationship with the Indians, in our efforts to develop a fair national policy governing present and future treatment of Indians under their special relationship with the Federal government.

Before we can set out on the road to success, we have to know where we are going, and before we can know that we must determine where we have been in the past.  Is seems a basic requirement to study the history of our Indian people. America has much to learn about the heritage of our American Indians.  Only through this study can we, as a nation, do what must be done if our treatment of the American Indian is not to be marked down for all time as a national disgrace.

Daily Fractal Feature for 6th of January 2015

This may seem a little cliche' for this time of year, but there are so many beautiful wintry fractals circulating around the community that it was too tempting.  Snowflakes and frost are quintessential examples of natural fractals, so it's no mistake that fractal programs are good tools for rendering their beautiful forms.  



 
November Snowfall by Ampelosa

November Snowfall
by Ampelosa
Ampelosa makes wonderful use of snow white Sierpinski triangles to offset and accentuate lovely multicolored snowflake images.
 



Uryu Ishida, Quincy by Lady-Compassion


Uryu Ishida, Quincy
by Lady-Compassion
Jenny's works are often named from the works from which she draws gradients to construct them.  The art she drew this gradient was perfect for winter renders.  This Apophysis mandala has very delicate branches and the six-part symmetry that creates a very snowflake-like image.  




Happy New Year! by ElenaLight

Happy New Year!
by ElenaLight
For this image, Elena layers renders from several fractal and digital programs.  I especially like the fragility and translucence of the central ice structure.  The slightly out of focus swirls and sparkles lend a magical air.  The overall effect of this manipulation is very impressive.  
         
   

Frosted spiral by poca2hontas


Frosted-spiral
by poca2hontas
Martina's Frax pro spiral has an embossed quality that makes it a real stand-out.  It's gorgeous swirls of blue and white appear almost like marbled oil paint, or glossy ceramic.  



Frosty January. by semenocatya


Frosty January
by semenocatya
In this render, Katya makes beautiful use of a Mandelbrot spiral for a wintry effect. Her use of foreground figures lend an added dimension and the textures a sense of the briskness of winter wind.
