Its been a while (2-5 years) since I have touched this type of designing. These are mathematically generated design patterns plotted by the computer. All I get to do is to tweak a few variables and wait for the result
I call this one "A sun is born"
Will post more if I get positive responses on this post.
Program use to generate these type of Fractals : Apophysis



Variations used:
Transform1 : Linear 0.015, lazysusan 0.987 with weight 150
Transform2 : julian 0.995
Transform3 : Linear 4

hi Salvin,

you are really a great graphical artist!

Did you create that program? Can you tell a little about the mathematical background? For instance, what is lazysusan 0.987 with weight 150?

It reminds me of a program I wrote a couple of years ago, and so far it is the only program my wife likes. It was my first attempt to use as many threads as there were processors available (it therefore can do with some major upgrades, I guess).. The program takes any image and transforms it to a sort of hyperbolic world. The result being dependent of the sizes of the source frame and the destiny frame. By copying the destiny one or more times to the source, you can make a fractal with just a few clicks of the mouse. I took the liberty of taking your image and copying it twice (or was it once?) to the destiny.

I'll put it on my Github, if anyone's interested.

Hi Piet, I am not the artist. Apophysis is a very famous program in the fractals community. It's available here. Every design you generate is called a "flame". You get an interface to manipulate triangles. Each of these triangles can have one or more algorithms for point generation. Each algorithm generates points in certain cluster. e.g. A Linear algorithm will generate uniform points linearly in a plane. Julian would makes rings of points, Disc would generate a disc of points and so on. I am afraid I don't have much info about lazysusan mathematically.

What you have done is similar to what Aphophyisis does to points in "fisheye" algorithm. I love it !!!

Yes, the program does the calculations, I know. But give MichelAngelo and me the same brushes and paint, people will nevertheless notice a 'slight' difference in quality...

So, keep 'm coming, these pictures!

And if you are interested in some mathematical background, I can wholehartedly recommend 'Fractals everywhere' by Michael Barnsley.

Hi Salvin and Piet,

It's been awhile since I delved into the subject of fractals...just wanted to comment that the visuals are very cool!! Thanks for sharing!

Hi all,
While I would love to share a lot more designs I made, I think that it would be best if I upload my designs to an art based image hosting website that I have used in the past.
Here's my old gallery from 2011: https://salvin18.deviantart.com/gallery/. Many of the pics were uploaded in 2009 to 2011 !!

I second the motion! I liken it to looking at a magnificent sunset or the Northern Lights.

Thank you guys
I wish I get to see the Northern Lights at least once in my life time.
