Plastics exploitedMy last journal was about plastics. Even though it is not hard to find them, it is hard to find any recent ones. Especially plastics that use some xaos.
So here I am, writing an article about what you could do when creating a plastic.
Therefore this is not a tutorial on how to create them. A tutorial on "How to make Plastics" you can find https://drummerboy08.deviantart.com/art/Apophysis-Spherical-Gems-Tut-158753029
I hope to come up with some plastics, that illustrate how much more can be done, then just creating nice blurred balls.
(I am NOT implying that they do not look good nor that they are be original,I am just showing other ways on how to put everything together).
I am gonna use some xaos graphs.
A triangle means a transform and an arrow means the xaos is not zero. If there is no arrow it is zero.
Now let us start with a plastic that does have blurred balls (more or less).
What happend in the picture ?
The plastic has some gnarly "thing" going on. This is
#89: Frequently Asked QuestionsOk guys, I think it's time to do a little FAQ, because I read the same questions over and over.
Let me see if it's useful for somebody.
OMG, what is this?
It's a fractal, baby!
What is a fractal?
It's a really difficult question to answer, but I'll try to keep it as simple as I can. So, fellow fractalists, if you're reading, I won't be that precise in answering.
Wikipedia says: "A fractal is a mathematical set that has a fractal dimension that usually exceeds its topological dimension and may fall between the integers."
Wait, what? I didn't even understand myself.
Ok, a fractal is basically the repetition of a same "image". This image can be repeated with its original dimension or fractal dimension (it can be resized).
For example, let's pick the Romanesco Broccoli (the image is from Wikipedia):
As you can see, it's a repetition of the same "peaks" over and over, each of them with diffe
