Did you see the fractal?
Not always fractal geometry is clearly visible. :D
(In fact, sometimes it's an artists challenge to partially hide it)
This is a combination of two fractal programs: The leaves are an L-System from LParser and the fractal is an Incendia Julia set

Amazing jungles, nice work.

Wow! Just discoverd this one. Must be one of the most complex models made with "my" lparser ;)

Many Thanks Mr. Laurens :thanks:
I was fan of your program since long ago. I still remember that winged airhorse (made several variations rendered in povray), but never mastered the art of writing l-systems.
As for this image, the trick is simple, is a 3d mesh of the leaf, imported into Incendia and iterated by a Julia Set. What you see is the iteration points as they converge to the set.
By the way, where are lparser pages now? The original link appears broken..

I have some images still up on Facebook but the Lparser website is gone for the moment. Off course the source is still free for any one who asks …

This is almost surreal-like. Nice.

eh...I don't understand. I just saw this one: [link]

It has the same shapes and colours. It is also a beauty. Does Incendia work with scripts or something like that?

Thanks!! :thanks:
The similarities between both images are because Incendia can use 3D meshes as a base for fractals. This this case, a tropical leaf (a mutation from one created in LParser). Most probably both fractals are very different, but since the base is a leaf, well..thats why both looks similar (I consider that Deirdre creation is by far more better than my humble effort).
Incendia also supports scripting, for both fractal and bases.

Ah... I understand. Incendia gives great results.

so how did you put the two together?

To say this is amazing would be a severe understatement. This is really...incredible! :D :D

Gaaah!!!
My head!
Either I'm looking to closely, or there is a fractal design in the stems themselves.
It's amazing at how this can be used to predict natural patterns. This gemoetry should make neurology a crapload easier.
Not that I know anything about it or the formula, but this is way beyond my skill level in math.
How does one make something like this?
