OUR CURRENT CHALLENGE
2021 April Challenge: Gnarled Stripes2021 April Challenge: GNARLED STRIPESLast April we combined OM.ufm Gnarlathotep 3 with OM.ucl Eschangaleng. Since then, Otto Magus has added OM2.ufm Alt Gnarlathotep , with 101 variants, and Alt Gnarlathotep 2, with 39 variants.For this month’s challenge let us start with OM2.ufm Alt Gnarlathotep with its 101 variants. Use on the INSIDE TAB the coloring formula RSP.ucl rp-AS-xx2. This coloring formula will give most of the variants a split-stripe effect. Some conic formulas and some orbit traps will give you a similar effect, but let’s limit ourselves this month to RSP.ucl rp-AS-xx2. Make as many layers as you like of the Alt Gnarlathotep, using as many of the 101 variants as you like, the majority of them with the RSP.ucl rp-AS-xx2 coloring with its variants. There are ten transform types for you to play with, four choices of coordinates, and five functions.You may also use one other .ufm formula of your choice, with as many layers of that as you wish.You may use one other coloring formula of your choice, either on the additional formula you have chosen, or on a minority of the Alt Gnarlathotep formulas, so long as a majority of those do use the RSP.ucl rp-AS-xx2 coloring formula.One texture layer or a grouping of that texture layer is permitted. One framing layer or a grouping of that framing layer is permitted.Only maskings made with one or both of the two formulas and/or two colorings are permitted.No mappings are permitted for this challenge, EXCEPT one of the “Lake” mappings, for example TMA.uxf The Compleat Lake.Gradients, transparent gradients, zooms, merge modes, and groupings are permitted.Your final fractal should have some gnarled stripes visible in it.CHALLENGE RULESEntries per month: 4Submit to the 2021 April gallery here: https://www.deviantart.com/ultra-fractal-redux/gallery/77891852/april-2021-gnarly-stripes-challengeThis Challenge ends on April 30th, 2021.Simple watermarks only.Please mention or link to the group or this journal in your comments.:iconUltra-Fractal-Redux:Share params if you are able to so we can all learn from this exercise. Your parameters can be very useful to new UF users!We look forward to seeing all of your original fractals.If you have a question about any of this please post it in a comment below.Margaret Kieckhefer :iconampelosa:with much help from Chris Martin :iconvelvet--glove:By the way, Evan Bayliss has joined the Ultra Fractal group of contributors to the public formulas. Update your parameters and check him out. https://www.deviantart.com/ejbayl EJB.ufm
