Fractal Art Week


Hi everyone.
In this article I’ll show a way to complete a 3D fractal scene starting from a previous tutorial: amazingIFS guide extended by batjorge

I will go over how to add a formula and set up lighting for a render scene.

The previous tutorial shows how to get bulb halls with amazing IFS with low iterations, but the information is incomplete, as it wasn't my goal to cover it.
There are few steps to complete it. You can have the starting parameters here: sta.sh/01cx9jabnwnq
Add TorusIFS on the third formula slot and increase the maximum iterations from 1 to 2 params, like so: sta.sh/018wg4mgfep5

After a bit of exploring I found this:

Test003 by batjorge

I adjusted both formulas with mainly Z sliders and scales. I wanted both formulas to be visible in the scene. You can move theses sliders along with scaling in order to overlay them slightly.

Take your time with this until you get the hang of it.
After experimenting for a while I decide to move the scene in order to have a nicer view. I’ll use a low Far Plane and FOVy. I also prefer to use the Neutral Grey preset in the lighting window in MB3D.

test003N6 by batjorge

I’ll stay with this view and do a slightly bigger render at 640x480 at 0.2 ,0.2, 12 and smooth normals at 2 for a better view. I encourage to render Hard Shadows at first before getting into coloring.

Lighting window:
I will use only the first light. I also slightly change the color of it to R230 G220 B199, and reduce intensity to 7.1e-1 (one click down). I also change the Spec to 64.
I also set up a brighter specular color scheme.

Captura de pantalla de 2017-10-09 18-39-34 by batjorge

I move to the ambient tab and select the same colors for both color fields. It will help us to avoid this ugly banding when you put the depth coloring out. Use a neutral grey e.g.

Also right-click on the first Amb field to obtain the same colors as the depth fields. Later, darken the first color field again to avoid making it overly bright.

I’ll use the diffuse map nr.1 from MB3D here by checking the little mark ‘Use a map for diffuse color’.
Adjust the sliders until you have something nice with 2 differentiated colors.
You can use the direction keys of the keyboard to have more precision if you'd like.

Move the Diffuse Shadow slider more to the left to have stronger shadow contrasts, and increase the Ambient slider to the right.

Something like this → Captura de pantalla de 2017-10-09 19-00-07 by batjorge

If the amount of the depth is not very visible, you must go back to the 3dnavi and reduce Far plane and render again! Adjust it until you're satisfied with the amount of fog it shows. 3Dnavi tends to be buggy here, be careful!

Now go to the Post Process window and change the ambient to DEAO 33 in order to have a more ‘natural’ look.
Add some reflections with the depth set at 1 and see the outcome.
If you find it too overbright, reduce Amount to 0.5 or so to reduce intensity.

test003N6~r by batjorgetest003N6~rdof by batjorge

Now, add a single focus point for the Depth of Field (DOF). I’ll add it just in front of the big bulb, behind the small one as shown in the image up by the right dot.

By having a small FOVy we don’t need high values. Just default 0.02 is ok. Increase value if you want more blur.

Now the scene is almost complete.
I’ll render it at a bigger size (3840x2880), or later saving a 1:1 view copy in .png and a 1:2 view (half size) for anti-aliasing.
Recommended final quality settings: Raystep multiplier 0.1/ Stepwidth Limiter 0.1/ Stepcount 12 and Smooth normals 6

test003Fin by batjorge

A little postwork of your saved image may help to give it a better look. Use some automatic Levels, or just some Brightness/Contrast in your preferred image editor!

I hope this has helped you understand how to work with more dIFS formulas and to get a easy working process through Mandelbulb3D.
Thanks for reading!

A feature in appreciation to all the wonderful people who send send me her wishes for my birthday :pensioner: :squee:

A special mention to Barbara :iconpamonk: I knew she would have said some nice words, but she can't at the moment. Wishing you a good recovery :hug:
 
A good friend from here asked my to post a journal about Barbara, aka PaMonk :iconpamonk:. So that is a note that her son wrote on her page:

Hello I'm Barbara's son Benjamin. Wanted to make a update and my mom. She had a brain aneurysm rupture and me and my dad took her to a hospital and they life flighted her to Vanderbilt university medical center and she had brain surgery and they clipped it off and she is in the ICU recovering. They took the breathing machine off her and she can breath on her own. She is gonna be here for a few months. So pray for her guys. I'm praying as well. If you guys can update all her friendss with this post in a journal or msg her freinds please.

-Best wishes for you Barbara :hug:- (personal note)
This is part of the Inspiration Station Journal series retaken from an idea of :iconc-91:  Inspiration Station - LET'S BRING IT BACKHello! :wave:
I'll make a personal journal soon but this is not the time.
When I first joined the fractal community in 2012, the resident Community Volunteer was SuicideBySafetyPin.
One of the activities she proposed that I liked the most was the Inspiration Station flash mob: it helped me to discover fractalists from which I could learn and take...inspiration. :D
The first one I made was this:

Almost four years later, the fractal scene has changed and many more artists need to be celebrated. That's why I'd like to bring this flash mob back in the fractal community.
(I asked permission to Light, don't worry :giggle:)
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each week I'll send you a note with the name of the chosen artist and the date the feature is due on.
You can plan your feature and schedule it via Sta.sh or do it at the precise moment, it doesn't really matter.
Main thing is that on the set day, the artist's inbox is flooded with mentions of feature journals.
.
Part of the idea is that many deviants highlight with a journal entry another chosen artist at the same time I am a dummy!

This week is dedicated to FractatEyes :iconfractaleyes:

FractaEyes is a very talented female fractal artist mainly specialized in Ultra Fractal and she's among us in DA for almost 9 years.

If someone is missing just drop me a note and I'll add you here, and accept an apology in advance :bademoticon: 

A little guide on how to use amazingIFS formula on Mandelbulb 3D.
Here is a simple procedure on how to obtain these caracteristic “kleinian” shapes or however they are named with a simple heightmap. This mini tutorial can be done with any other dIFS shapes tough, like SphereIFS, etc.
I've used for this example a very simple grayscale map, filled with neutral grey (RGB 192)
If you don't want to make it or can't, you can download it here: sta.sh/0fu5qld142i
Don't forget to add the map to the working folder you have for Mandelbulb 3D!
I've lowered the max. Iterations to 25 in the formula window to speed things a bit up but you can change it later if you prefer to do so.

  • Put in the first slot HeightMapIFS and type 199 in the nr field:


Captura de pantalla de 2015-08-11 21:07:53 by batjorge

  • Add amazingIFS to the second slot.
  • Just set all rotation X, Y and Z from default 5 to 0, and change Fold X, Y and Z values to 1.


Captura de pantalla de 2015-08-11 21:23:38 by batjorge
   

  • Leave everything else as it is.

Now press the 3D navi button to open it and you will see this:

Captura de pantalla de 2015-08-11 21:29:43 by batjorge

   

Now you're done basically, do a preview render if you prefer or continue experimenting with the sliders until obtaining something you're happy with it.

Hope this guide helps you a bit through the awesome dIFS world in Mandelbulb 3D.



:iconlulupoo: passed me a note from Patty :iconundead-academy: asking to let know her friends that she will not be able to get on DA for a time due to bad news :( <da:thumb id="522463899"/>

Many people went a bit frustrated on not getting anything “cool” from the new Amazing Surf 2 formula recently made by Luca, aka dark-beam :icondark-beam: for Mandelbulb 3D.
If you haven't it in hand you can get it here: www.fractalforums.com/mandelbu…

Here's a brief indication on how you can get nice patterns out of it without hair pulling :D

I've assumed that you already put on the first slot the Asurf2 formula.

Asurf2 Default by batjorge

So, let's change some values:

Scale= 1.325

Min R= 0.1

FoldXY= 0.25

Rotate1 X=0

Rotate1 Y=0

Rotate1 Z= 8

FoldFiddler=0

It would look something like this:


Asurf2 Input Values by batjorge

Now go on the Julia tab in the main window or in the 3D navi, as you most prefer, and input the following values:
X= 0
Y= -1.5
Z= 0

Asurf2 Input Values With Julia On by batjorge

Now that's it, you're done basically.

Now you can zoom into different areas finding some interesting shapes:

asurf2 input values with julia onZoom by batjorge

This is a very basic indication from wich you can take a starting point. E.g. changing positive values to negative ones results in inverting the shapes and in cool variations, as well as using the fold fiddler and all other values you wish to change.
Hope it have been useful for you

"The rules are really simple!
You have to paste the thumbs of 2 or 3 deviations of yours, that you posted around this date a year ago.
Then you tag 5 friends, and they shall do the same thing in their journals.
Let's see what comes out!

Have to "cheat" a bit since I haven't posted anything on this day past last year Confused , so there's one of the day before and another after :D (a DD, omg)

I was planning for some time to release a parameter pack based on organic shapes for Mandelbulb 3D. It consists in many different formulas such SierpHilbert, HalfOctIFS or others wich are normally used in other contexts. (No ASurf will be included :giggle:)
Since some avatars of life I'll be forced to delay it for an indefinite time. I'm seeing anyway a kind of explosion of this kind of shapes and I prefer to wait a bit to see how life will treat me in a short time :)
Anyway here is a simple one with SierpHilbert to show an advance :)

Sharing parameters are a cool way to learn and by the way, having fun with the program you are dealing with. It can open you new doors to unknown combinations you would not even have tought on it to do. Read tatasz's :icontatasz: journal about sharing for more info: tatasz.deviantart.com/journal/…
The normal thing, or better said, ideal, is that when you take a parameter from an artist who decided to share his knowledge with the rest of the world is to give properly credit. That means you have to mention the source from wich you've taken the start point.
But it seems that many people went totally exhausted after rotating a bit and move one or two sliders and have no more energy after pressing the submit button... This is what upsets me totally, grabbing intentionally params and not crediting. Is this such an difficult task? It hurts your pride or you are just a total asshole?
They are around much parameters from wich the original source is lost from the begin of times and that's perfectly understandable. Of course most of the artists are polite and give always proper credits where credit is due.:worship: And that is mainly all, unless you have even more dark intentions to sell it somewhere or so.
Sharing parameters is NOT a free Buffet! :stare:
But it is tiring and senseless to make a decent point at this, it's an eternal issue on DA.
For the time I will not share anymore parameters, excepting the pong ones with my dear pong partner. Mines will be only available to some dear friends that I know they don't have any need to do such strange things.
 Have a nice day, so said.
