Isolating Structures In MB3DHow to clean up your image background ~
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
12th Mandelbulb 3D Teaser ~ 1st Annual SpecialWe hope all the participants here at the Mandelbulb 3D Teaser group have been having a great time. It's been almost a year since =LaxmiJayaraj came up with the idea. She has truly been the driving force behind the group and has done the majority of the heavy lifting, and for that she deserves a lot of credit!
While there has never been a particular set of goals, we feel much has been accomplished and most of all, it has been fun. The unique rules where each monthly winner sets the next challenge makes for an interesting mix of projects for us all to participate in. If in the process we learn something new, then we all come out on the winning side.
In a sort of tribute in completing the first full year of the Teaser group, Lux, Tim and I have discussed doing something different for the 12th Mandelbulb 3D Teaser as a sort of anniversary celebration. The winner of the 11th teaser will be setting the rules for the 13th teaser instead.
This month, the 12th teaser will be a tweaking teas

Next Flower of Life design with hexagram of my new series. Will be printed and sold as sticker and hardboard coaster. I think it's the best so far. Goes along with these:
If you want to buy this as print on DeviantART please just let me know.
The Flower of Life symbol is considered to be sacred among many cultures around the world, both ancient and modern. Within this symbol can be found all the building blocks of the universe that we call the Platonic Solids. The symbol can be used as a metaphor to illustrate the connectedness of all life and spirit within the universe.
In sacred geometry, the six-pointed star is known as Star Tetrahedron and Spiritually, it is called a Mer (rotating light) Ka (Soul or Spirit) (Ba) Physical Body. We have the opportunity to bring into greater alignment our body, mind, heart into relationship with Soul.
The Star of David, also known as the Seal of Solomon is an esoteric symbol. In India, the six pointed star has been associating with Shiva/Shakti interconnection or Divine Masculine/Feminine in harmony and union. When the triangles merge with each other to form the shape of a hexagon, it can be seen as a state of manifestation. Star of David is an unusual alignment that opens a gateway into Consciousness.
