Building in Fractal Programs
With wicked winds and cold temperatures, I sometimes get the urge just to mess around in different graphic programs.
The above piece was done in Incendia. I layered in in PSP [Paint Shop Pro] and then added my own touches.
This piece was done in JWildfire. I've been doing more symmetrical pieces lately and read that symmetry was more pleasing to the eye. I however like things that are not symmetrical.
This piece was made in Mandelbulb 3D and done for a daily challenge in the FB group I am a member of called Mandelbulb Maniacs.
A word about the programs. Incendia, JWildfire, and Mandelbulb 3D, have groups on Facebook that engage in tips and challenges which are extremely helpful in learning how to use these great free programs.
As always, you can make a donation to the creators which I'm sure they would appreciate.
As I've stated before in previous posts, I love combining and mixing programs.
It is pretty easy to do. For this I first created a backround in JWildfire, then created an image in Mandelulb 3D and then used it as a backround in Incendia and let it render.
Basically I used each program to build on each other.
All you need is some imagination and some experimenting.
Other fractal artists like to remain pure and true to the program.
However I am one that lets anything and everything go.
Mixing programs is a challenge that is rather fun.
