Someone make me promise that i will never use that many layers again... Seriously, i think there are more layer groups here than my average layer count....

Anyhows, it isn't completely done yet, but i thought i might as well share.

I have always envied people who could make such totally simple images with UF :) I succeeded with 1, after 2 years of struggling :D But what I love in this image is that I know how much work is beneath such simple lines, and I sit here with a massive jawdrop :) Congrats ^^

Thank you~

The reason for it's many layers is quite simple: I was practicing how to use mappings and clippings as masks :D

most welcome ^^


I know that feeling very well :D I have tons and tons of unrendered params consisting of clipping and masking practices :D most of them are a worthless pile of crap, but at least I'm trying to be better at it :D

Well, that alone places you in the top 10% of fractal makers :D

This would not satisfy the mathematical definition of fractal, since it lacks the characteristic self-similarity...

I am just limiting the shown iterations a little...

I would just call them checked patterns.
The boundrary of your figure have Hausdorff dimension 1, somehting that is VERY rare for fractals.

So this is a WIP. Hmm, half of me wants it to stay like this as it is amazing! The other half of me is wondering what else you've got up your sleeve and wait in anticipation for the end product. Looking great!

It looks great the way it is. It's amazing how something that appears so simple can really be so complex.

It's looking good. Not really what you would expect from a fractal. Great work!
