rendering info:

time: 3 whole days (cpu running over 100 deg celsius)
software: my toy rendering system, allura (photoshop only for text)
wtf: crazy unprincipled iteration formula with zillions of iterations, producing an ultrafine "net" of torn microsurfaces (in consequence the surface normal computation is approximate at best)

Still my all-time favorite in your gallery. So organic and detailed.

this looks so believable as a real structure, amazing.

The anti-aliasing algorithm must have gone crazy trying to smooth out all that fine detail. Almost like cotton candy. Great job!

Absolutely beauty-full image, love it! what a render ! O_o <3
Looks like billions polys in traditional 3d package, no?

How did your processor not melt? The thermal paste should have crumbled under those extremes. Very cool piece!
lyc's avatar
it did crumble, and the cpu was throttling :noes:
HEY ! Hi there !

How how can we get your toy ?

It seams to work prety well in All kind of fractals from organic mandrelbot to Even terrain ...

And better yu can already export this fractals to 3D Isnt ??
[link] lol WHOW very nicee....

Cheers !

A wounderfull 2012 Full of achievments man !

thank you :)

btw, it's rendered with my own 3d render program; although now, i think it would be better to render it using indigo renderer :sherlock:

Wow seem like an web of a spider

Art? Maybe not. Beautiful? Definitely. Makes me think of some kind of alien landscape, add a starscape to the background and it could be.

On a side note, you voluntarily let your PC overheat for renders? I normally limit a render on any program to 3 cores (75%). Even if I turn off the thermal alarm I can almost hear my PC's silent screams of agony otherwise...

This is amazing, reminds me of magnetic powder also great lighting!
lyc's avatar
thanks :) the lighting is standard skylight model (described by preetham shirley smits) used in most realistic 3d rendering engines, so i can't take credit for that i'm afraid ;)

Interesting fractal. Looks organic, as if I was looking at some natural material under a microscope.
