Spice Island Clipper by Velvet--Glove Spice Island Clipper by Velvet--Glove
Created entirely within Ultra Fractal 4.04. Full size view recommended.

:trophy: This image won first place in the fractal Landscape Contest on the ImagersFractalDDs group:

:iconimagersfractaldds: Link

I started off with the idea of doing just an island in the sun but, as usual, I got completely carried away with adding a ton of little details and fun things to it. In the process I tried some new colourings, clippings and techniques, learning a lot along the way. Time very well spent in my view... not to mention [Contest Rule #10] having a whole heap o' fun putting it all together!

I hope you have enjoyed your imaginary trip to the Spice Islands with me, on the fractal
Clipper ship HMS Mandelbrot. :giggle:

Wow I see I already had this fave'd, but I didn't recall you ever made any fractal scenes! This is amazing and I love that fancy boat!

Thanks, Anna. This is an oldie now but I still like it - it took a ton of layers to construct! I'm not sure I would have the patience to do this sort of thing now. :lol:

Yup, my more intricate fractal scenes have loads of layers and slow my pc down when it gets too much :(

The mini-brot on the flag makes this for me. The tree is great too.

Thanks very much, Chris. I recall having to work a lot on that tree, to give it depth and shading, so I'm glad to hear it's appreciated. :D

I completely understand. I have a collection of "ugly-trees" that will remain tucked away in the shade of my wip folder. Despite being fractals themselves.. they are not as easy to make as people think.

:nod: I quite agree - this is the one and only time I have tried trees. I can live without them, though. ;)
