Welcome back, my loves! It is the first day of a new year, and I…
OK, I admit it: I really don’t know what I’m doing. Most of my fractal images either happen based on some really smart person’s easy-to-follow tutorial, or completely by accident. While the below images are based on a tutorial I found, I was entirely unable to create a decent render of the image, no matter what settings I tried. I spent about a week trying to get this to render well enough to do something with the final image, but no joy. So, in complete and utter frustration, I decided to copy the screenshots of the below attempts. The “pre-render” images actually looked pretty good. The rendered versions, not so much.
Some days, you just have to say “Screw it!” and move on.
Greetings Fan! I finally managed to get a decent render to show off. Well, I think it’s decent, anyway. Your opinion may differ.
Only another artist will likely understand this. And maybe programmers. Possibly engineers. And research scientists. And anyone else who has to experiment to get final results.
I have been thinking a lot lately about how much I want to get back to making art again. I’ve made lots of excuses of the past several months (ok, the past year), most of which revolved around my intention to get fit and healthier. Life just gets in the way of what we want to do sometimes, right? So, today, I sat down at my computer, fired up Apophysis 7, and made this:
Apparently, I can’t just stay in the CrossFit box all day, or even workout every day. Since today’s a rest day, I thought I’d post some new artwork I made.
