Welcome visitors! I'm glad you stopped by. Please have a look at my gallery to view some interesting images I've created to try to bring fractals more into a real life form. The majority of these images were created by manipulating variables in mathematical formulas in a friendly user interface within the Mandelbulb 3D fractal program. I also create fractals with Apophysis and Fractal Explorer. Most images can be purchased as prints. And images not offered as prints can be set up for printing if you make a request.

Most of my images can also be licensed for use as CD cover art, book covers or web use.

So click the Gallery button above and have a look around! I appreciate your interest and hope you like what I've done.

I also wanted to say thanks to all my friends and visitors that have congratulated me for my recent work as a concept artist on the Marvel film, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2".

Thanks!

Appalling Deviantart policy

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 20, 2018, 7:14 AM
EDIT: I'm updating this because after almost 4,000 negative comments on the original journal, numerous journal shares and social media comments, Deviantart is going to lift the Geoban on Syria. Mythiril's statement: comments.deviantart.com/1/7310…  and DA's statement: comments.deviantart.com/1/7310…

My original journal still remains below.

End edit------------------------------


Deviantart says "We are the movement for the liberation of creative expression." A few days ago, Deviantart blocked all the artists, and indeed the entire country of Syria. Deviantart says "Artists love us because we are an inclusive and supportive community." Deviantart has now blocked all the Iranian artists, and their entire country. They are also (possibly) blocking all the posts about this situation on the DA site by tagging all those posts with a 'mature content' tag so casual visitors, or people that don't have an account here cannot see them. I am ashamed to be here and am considering closing my account, or at the very least, dropping my premium membership so I don't contribute to their revenu. 

The hypocrisy of deviantArtEdit #5
Well, I'll be damned
Staff reply here: comments.deviantart.com/1/7310…
And we WON! We did it!
and my comment here: https://comments.deviantart.com/1/731065159/4555022355 stating why this is still up

Edit #4: Iran is geobanned too see here Imagine!
Bravo deviantart, bravo, I applaud you
:clap:
Please share this, every bit of support counts. I am probably getting my account perma banned after this journal, but I am voicing this discrimination and I want as many people to see it as possible. 
I know people will have various opinions about this. Voice them as you please, but politics shouldn't meddle with art. This isn't fair. This isn't right. You can't deny me service because some politician says so.

Just wanted to say that the fractal 'buildings' you have shared have made me want to get back into scenery making. I used to make gaming tables for Games Workshop and haven't touched plasti-card and glue in a long time. Seeing what you have created ahs made me want to return to that hobby... now to find the time. Wonderful gallery. Thanks for sharing.

Hey HalTenny, i am just trying out the tool mandelbulb, its kinda difficult to understand,
my aim is to do something similar to the psychedelic scenes of doctor strange movie, like the hands growing out fractally, also is it possible to custom make a 3d object and import it into mandelbulb to create fractals of it.. am i understanding the tool wrong? is there any other tool that does that kind of stuff? 

more importantly how do u achieve those spectacular defined structure results in mandelbulb, do u fix an idea in mind or do u free explore and do something?

also r u the one who made those scenes in guardians of galaxy 2 ? great work! 💖

No you can't 'import' 3d objects into mb3d. You can use depth maps of 3d objects to use on heightmaps on planes and spheres. The fractal like hand scene was probably made in a much more full featured high dollar program such as houdini. 

I pretty much explore, but use my saved parameters as a starting point, and also know somewhat the shapes that some of the formulas can create. I never start out knowing exactly what I'm going to make though. 

Most of the concept work I sent to Marvel for the film was reworked by other concept artists, but I did have a large influence on quite a bit of the Palace structure inside and out, floor designs, bedroom bungalows, Caverns and cave and the Ego fractal entity. 

Thanks!

I am absolutely amazed at what can be done in Mandelbulb. I downloaded it and cant even begin to create anything. The learning curve is insane.
That being said. ALL of your work is nothing short of mindblowing.

I really appreciate it! Here's some tutorials that may help. They are all old. The tutorials were written using older versions of MB3D, so the interface has changed. But if you carefully look around in the same areas I indicate in the screen shots, you can usually find things, sometimes under tabs that weren't there before...
