…and Daddy Longlegs Dreamings

Been playing around with lxh:s "Amazing Surf / ABoxMod2 / _RotatedFolding" formula combo for a while without getting any decent results.
I have been searching for a surreal Cathedral which would make Gaudí purple of envy, and this weekend I got pretty close I think…
All formula tabs occupied! -forget the height map! ;)

Thank you Kali for this very versatile formula! (and lxh for finding the cathedralic combination!)

Wow! This would make a neat scenery for an alien ruin/hive.

Neat effects with the sun beaming through the pillars and openings! I gotta learn how to do volumetric lighting in Mandelbulb!

Also, most of the time, I fiddle around with the Platinum Box Mod and the Box Mod Kai along with other formulas for my fractals but never saw the _RotatedFolding one. Where is it? I'd like to try those out for my future fractals.

Thank you Dr!
It should be under one of the "Ads" _RotatedFolding

It's creepy in a cool way. Has a nice gothic feel to it but with the light as a nice contrast to the doom and gloom of "Goth".:)

:) Thank you Mark, who knows if it is a kind kind of light... ;)
