Mixpinski Castle - Mandelbuld with Parameter by matze2001

Mixpinski Castle by :iconmatze2001:

I thought I'd kick off today's feature with something a bit different.  This elegant piece was assembled in MB3D.
The artist has left links for all source materials so you too may have a go at assembling this piece.  Is it raw or is it a manipulation?
I leave that discussion to you.  What it most certainly is is a clever use of free resources to produce something fantastically realistic with free software that might, in other software programs, take hours of cutting, pasting, blurring and sharpening, feathering and interlacing.

Allien Rock I by FracZky

Alien Rock 1 by :iconfraczky:

The author of this piece has submitted it with a perfect quote which I am sharing with you!
"Layers of water, like liquid crystal, rushed in as the tide changed from the barren death of day to the nightly seascape, in an instant. Pushing against the deformities of rock and part animal shapes, as the the 3 moons rose ominously over the horizon of Zorkon, planet of the unknown..." by Piscabo

Star Gate... by zrosemarie


Star Gate by :iconzrosemarie:

I know when I first started using MB3D that getting the different Dif shapes to combine and line up is tricky.  So all power to your elbow
Rose Marie for producing this noteworthy piece.

Rose Garden Never Promised by SuicideBySafetyPin

Rose Garden Never Promised by :iconsuicidebysafetypin:

Little Apo flowers form a spiral of beauty, swirling round in toffee apple colours. Hitch your wagon to her star cos this girls on fire!

Sand Castle 11x14 by ericnyeart

Sand Castle by :iconericnyeart:

This crazily fascinating piece has to be in panoramic view.  It somehow calls to mind medieval works before perspective was invented.
It's wonderfully surreal and totally off balance.  Redolent of hillside graveyards where night time shades are busy lurking!

Don't forget to enter our current challenge  Flower Festival 2015Hi all  Flower 
For the months of July into early September we are running a Flowers Challenge. We know that many of you enjoy making this type of fractal and hope that lots of you will take the time to make something pretty. Flowers can be generated in most if not all fractal software.  For instance Ultra Fractal, Apophysis and Mandelbuld 3D maybe Incendia and Chaotica, Frax even.  I don't have user knowledge of a lot of fractal software so will be guided by you, but please.... no manipulations.  Show off you skills with Raw Fractals.  I guess an exception would be Light Maps used for colour and with DIFS.
UF users might want to explore the flower shapes in RKB.ulb, though I know there are lots of other ways to make flowers. and if any one knows a good tut for Apo flowers then do leave us a comment and I'll add it to the detailsFlower Bullet (DarkTurq) - F2U!

Oriental by chetje

Oriental by :iconchetje:

Exuberant style and colour that somehow reminds me of flamenco.  Glorious red in all its gradations with an intriguing pattern overlay.
Shall we dance!


The Floating Lights of Orion by Rick-Thiemke

The Floating Lights of Orion by :iconrick-thiemke:

Vibrant colours, almost perfect symmetry and an intricate open weave pattern combine to make this a very attractive piece.


03 02 by powerpole

03 02 by :iconpowerpole:

I imagine this is Apo, though I don't know.  There is something about this particular shade of green that is so restful and calming.
The white background makes such a nice change and the tiny, brightly coloured orbs in the foreground add contrast and interest.



All that I am by TSHansen

All that I am by :icontshansen:

Back after years of absence TS Hansen puts his heart and soul into this UF piece.  It's an intriguing piece in a popular style.

295 by Arkadius13

295 :iconarkadius13:

Amazing Surf next to Amazing Box must be THE most popular MB3D formula used but I am sure you will forgive me for featuring just one more.  It's the contrasting colours and symmetry of this piece that I find so appealing.  Such a beautiful shade of blue with just enough contrast in the hi-lights.

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!
