Love this! Man, I can't tell you how many hours I've spent playing with AmazingBox2 in formula 1 and MengerIFS in formula 2 tweaking values and searching for something interesting to look at. I have never seen any shapes even remotely similar to what you found here! There are just so many variables to tweak, it's hard to know which ones to tweak, and by how much, etc. Not to mention iteration count, max iterations, the repeat from here checkbox and the Julio settings! I haven't quite figured out the workflow for starting with a blank slate, combining some formulas and then finding the interesting parts.

I suggest to start with bib993's excellent tutorial  Mandelbulb3D Theli-at style Box tutorial by bib993 if you haven't done yet. It is a good start point. Also please, if you tweak someone else parameters, it is due to give proper credits.
I used MengerIFS_B_2v0(1) formula here and don't come with MB3D, but you can download it here along many more (.m3f) drive.google.com/drive/folders…

Thanks for mentionning this tutorial even though it's outdated. Getting there is now easier with more recent formulas (JosKlein etc...)

Agree. Also Pseudokleinian on Mandelbulber etc.

The texture and the shapes themselves compliment each other nicely.
What kind of math is involved in making the fractal "fog"?
batjorge's avatar
Fog is built inside MB3D. It can depend on many factors like the formula types, iterations and other. :idontgetit:(Dyn. Fog)
It also depends on the Depth and Far Plane, so you can add more or less for to the scene. (only for depth fog).
Alucard3598's avatar
Would the depth and far planes affect how thick the fog is?
batjorge's avatar
No, it may depend on the colors you choose. Setting a low far plane, e.g. let's say 3.0, and very low depth you can cover almost the scene. It is a go and back through 3dnavi and main window.

Very kind, thank you :heart:

Lovely work, Jorge! :deviation:

Thank you a lot, finally could tame some menger thing, lol. In fact you can do the same with menger3, don't used the new features as far as I know. Think they can be very useful when you use rotations :idontgetit: :D

Haven't had any time yet, I need days that last 72 hours for all the great things to do:nod: But will remember your rotation tip ;)
Welcome, Jorge! :rose:

Superb image Jorge! :clap: Believe it or not, there's a guy out there who actually PAINTS this
sort of stuff?! :faint: Check out Peter Gric's work at: www.facebook.com/pgric/photos/ :nod:

Thanks for the link, saw many of his works around the web :faint: :faint: He's a genious. Wish I could approach just a bit of these works... Oh Noes! 
Very honored that you compare it to his works, Mark, specially coming from a master like you are :worship: :la:

how do people like you draw such masterpieces? do you use an grafical tablett, per pc, or hand? sry im new and got no idea of this topic, but im interested :) (Smile)

It is fractal art made with Mandelbulb 3D 191 www.fractalforums.com/index.ph… a fractal 3D program, and its free for use :)
You have here a great fractal community always pleased to help you. Take a look on the fractal groups were this picture is posted, there you'll find much resources on getting started with tutorials, programs etc.
Also you can go to the aposhack chat chat.deviantart.com/chat/Aposh…, there are always nice people willing to help you :)
