My Bio
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!

I disabled my auto renewal for core membership. I'll probably check in a few times a week. I wish all my friends at DA the best of luck. I'll be around, but not very often. You can find me on the Face if you like. https://www.facebook.com/HalTenny/

No Eclipse for me

No Eclipse for me

As of right now, I hate it. And I'm not going to pay for a core membership for something I DON'T LIKE. At the very least I'm dumping my core membership as soon as it runs out, and probably Deviantart altogether. They are catering to viewers that use phones over the members that provide the content. I stuck by the good and bad for almost ten years, but not this time. I don't even care if they never updated the original design again. Just leave it active, don't force something on us we don't want.

GOTG VOL 2 gets Shot at an Oscar

GOTG VOL 2 gets Shot at an Oscar

This wouldn't normally be anything to mention here. But having worked as a concept artist on "Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2", I am of course quite interested to see if Guardians 2 can snag an Oscar for visual effects. I am always quick to say that few - if any - of the 300 + concept images I sent to Marvel were used in their raw form in the film. However, a good majority of the eye candy on the planet Ego was based on, inspired or influenced by the images I submitted. Particularly the palace design, bedroom area and most of the subterranean scenes. Other concept artists such as Sam Michlap and Craig Sellars (and many others) were able to tak

Thank you for favouring Distressed Galvanisation, derived from a cropped photo of a surface seen in Amsterdam. By the time I'd 'finished' with it it looked just about believable as some kind of mid 20th century corporate abstract expressionism 'art' that they buy by the square metre to decorate swank American offices and foyers. I regard this as a real compliment. I Wish I could do this mandelbulb thing, but the dizzying array of parameters defeats me.
Actually, I also make pottery, though I just took it back up this summer. So I experiment some with combining glazes and that image struck me as being interesting. I don't post my pottery images here at DA because there doesn't seem to be much interest in pottery. :) I post those on the Face instead~

If you read the comment I sent you with the url's to the tutorials, I clearly said they were made using an older version. :) So yes, the version you are using was made 7 or 8 years after I wrote the first tutorial, and it is quite different. The images in the tutorials are maybe a little hard to see the text, but the instructions are quite clear to read. I'm sorry if they aren't helping. There are many, many other tutorials out there too.
