Today I Bring You - Weirdly Wonderful Mandelbulb 3D

- from some, perhaps, less well known and prolific artists
           
Stuck Shrunk - Pong 285 by GraphicLia
Stuck Shrunk by GraphicLia
This image owes a lot of its impact to the map used, which gives these floral, tuberous shapes an almost knitted look.  Picking the right maps for a piece can make all the difference.

Weirdly wonderful shapes masquerading as musical instruments. I imagine them playing the music to The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
 
Owl by Baddad

Owl by Baddad

Such a cutie!  Look at his little beak and his big eyes. He's hiding in the forest and waiting to pounce .  See his family in the trees behind!

In so many Mandelbulb pieces there are new alien landscapes just waiting for the three headed monsters to populate them. Mandelbulb lends itself well to creating these fantasy and sci-fi worlds. The panorama background chosen for this image is so in keeping with the piece that you feel you want to set sail today for foreign climes! Mmm maybe not this foreign.

Delicate little fronds surround fecund growths about to burst and spew millions of spores into the atmosphere. Or perhaps they are waving gently underwater on some far off coral reef in balmy, shallow waters.

I continue the weekend specials with my own resume...

So what to tell you about me. I have been making art in one form or another since I was 4 years old. My first dabblings in digital art were with the free 'Paint' programme that shipped with every version of windows. They call it pixel art nowadays.

An Access to Art course in my fourties and a couple of months at The London College of Printing learning Photoshop, Illustrator and QuarkXPress gave me the impetus to learn on my own and my lasting love of vector graphics.

I opened a DA account some years ago to share my photography

But only started using it in late 2012 when I discovered fractals on Pinterest. I knew I wanted to make them and having done my research I purchased Ultra Fractal 5, downloaded every tut I could find and participated in every challenge.

My big thing, the thing I can't live without, is colour. One of the first things I did when I came here was to make a tutorial designed for UF users on understanding colour and using gradients. It took me 3 months to piece together.
  *******   Basics of Colour - for Ultra FractalLooking at  parameters, both from DA and Ultra Fractal Mailing list I have noticed a lack of understanding as to how colours interact. So I have decided to write a few helpful hints.
1)  The Colour Wheel - http://www.colormatters.com/color-and-design/basic-color-theory
All colours can be made from just three. Blue, Red and Yellow - for instance if you mix Blue and Red you get Purple, Red and Yellow make orange etc. Blue Red and Yellow are called primaries. Purple, Green and Orange are called Secondaries and Tertiaries are  combinations of two of these
 Basics of Colour - The Colour Wheel (just click on thumbnail for parameter file)
2) RGB v CYMK


RGB - Red Green and Blue relates to the colours that are mixed by an imaging device (TV screen, Monitor, Digital Camera) to produce an image
CYMK- Cyan (Blue) Magenta (Red) Yellow and Black refers to the colours that a printer's inks
  ********

I am still learning. With UF you never stop learning and that is the beauty and wonder of it!

Trinket Box by GrannyOgg  Still Life With Vegetable by GrannyOgg  Egyptian Trinkets by GrannyOgg  Onyx Artefact by GrannyOgg


Into my third year of using UF5 and how have I progressed? For one I am not afraid to experiment with different formulas and I regularly try out different ones. I especially like learning what the formula itself has to offer and often don't use Outside or Inside Colourings at all as a way of challenging myself to get the most out of it. I share my work on DA because I am proud of what I have achieved and if some one else likes it then that's a bonus.

BTW....I also do woodwork, gardening and DIY and almost always have a project on the go.

Digital Art is my winter hobby. At the moment I have an enduring passion for Fractal Art
****Meadow Sweet by GrannyOggSacre Verde by GrannyOggCy Generalised Durbi Practice 1 by GrannyOgg***
In the summer I build things. I have just built a chicken run at the back of my garden. I lost two chickens to a big brindle backed male fox. during the winter. My son bought me another one for mother's day. She is a Mille Fleur Bantam and we have named her Vienna. Sun Dance hatched six eggs in late May so I am extending their sleeping and laying boxes.
*****Scruffy by GrannyOgg********************* Fluffy by GrannyOgg****
I have built a large wooden raised strawberry bed out of decking. Summer was late here in England. We had months of rain in the winter and now the ground is dust dry!
