UNRAVELING by DeepChrome UNRAVELING by DeepChrome
This one was originally a sorta Julian/GJ looking kind of fractal, but I just couldn't pull it together for at least a week. Its params sat in my HD gathering dust for a bit. I had a cool gradient, it took up the entire screen, and it looked rather like a fractal carpet.

I was bored last night, and decided, "ah what the hell, play with it, see what other variations you can muck this thing up with."

Somewhere in there, pdj, julianscope, and maybe some other stuff got in there, and turned this into this really cool Julian-esque piece that wanted to unravel itself. Hence the title.

Anyways, here it is, from Apo 2.06c, rendered with flam3 external renderer, and resized, bordered, and titled in PS 7.0. No alterations themselves were made to the fractal other than that.

Enjoy.

it's gotta be representative of string theory, right? :floating:

Umm, no, it just made me think of all those old friendship bracelets back in the late 80s. :D

Thank you. :) Glad you liked it so much.

It was one of those happy coincidences I had to tweak, and then absolutely had to render.

Spectacular use of detail, and a great gradient to boot.. it's just a little too busy. I think it keeps my eyes moving too much to be a favorite for me.. but this is definitely a good direction for you to be going.. I love this experimental phase your having with Julian's Amy.. keep up the awesome work!

Thanks. :D

I'm rendering a Flower-Julianscope-ish thingy right now. This one pretty much might blow the socks off of Unraveled... :paranoid: Probably going to call it Flower Power or somesuch, although the gradient's more muted and a bit classier.

After that I'm probably going to try and do a Lissajous-Julian or something crazier like a 2-3 variation first transform, and going from there. I was reading through a Grand Julian tutorial, and it's what got me realizing why Unraveled worked the way it did. The first transform used in the GJ in the tutorial had involved blur. That's what got me realizing a Julian will duplicate said first transform all over the place. I didn't know this when I was working on Unraveled, but after reading that, something just clicked.

So now I'm trying Julian-y stuff with funky initial transform variations and seeing what I get, rather than just doing it all-out as Juliascope, Juliascope, Juliascope. :D

So the experimentation continues! :w00t:

Hmm, probably could. I have the parameters....hmm.

I'll take a look at that. :D

I was thinking when I saw it that it looked like some funky kinda rug. And then you called it a fractal carpet. :XD:

The original image I had in Apo before I turned it into this looked even more like fractal carpet.

Right now it looks more like a rug coming apart thread by thread, so I guess the turn of phrase holds just fine. :D
