I called it Grape DE because the midget looks like a squished grape and it uses the DE auto coloring. This image is at e+21, yet ChaosPro is only supposed to go to e+15. How is that possible? Custom renderer. I have written a custom renderer into ChaosPro that doubles the precision of the original renderer. Plus it is 20% faster than the old one. No animation. Till Nest Post(Dang, I did it again :^))
HPDZ.NET had an image of Metaphase that really caught my eye. So I found that location myself and created this image. Made with Fractal xTreme. I forget the depth. Looks like an egg to me. Which reminds me, I'm hungry. Till Next Post
This was one of the first images rendered in ChaosPro 3.3. It is a needle image with distance estimator. It is also 49x antialiased. The colors stand out when in the high resolution of the image. Have made a video to it and beyond. It's on a video about different DE variations. It's on youtube if you want to see it. Till Next Post
This was created, again with ChaosPro. This image was very simple. I just found a complex area and picked an appropriate color. The tough part was getting the antialiasing to work. It was antialiased at 81x to produce a noiseless picture. Took way too long. Unless I have 5 hours to spare, no animation for it. Till next Post
This was generated using ChaosPro. First, I had a fractal in the background with lots of different colors. Then I added a layer of a zoom into the Mandelbrot set. I then put an outside coloring of the swirls and masked them. And this is the result. No animation because ChaosPro crashes.(Why is that?) Till next Post

What happens when a fractal artist went crazy and had access to ChaosPro? This is what happened. This is an image where 5 different fractal locations were combined together with layering and masking effects. I like the midget in the center because it took all of the other picture's colors and made it usable for it. Computer crashes when trying to animate it, so you're out of luck on this one. Till next post
This is my oldest fractal deep zoom picture. It was generated using a evaluation copy of Ultra Fractal 4.0.3. It is at a depth of about e+23(by the way, when referring to depth in a fractal, is it e+ or e-?) I like the way the colors turned out. It seems color simple at the edge of the set. I did have a deeper zoomin of this rendering, but... At that point in time, my computer crashed and lost the location. Hopefully, Ultra Fractal 5 can find this image and tell me where it was so I can make a video of it. Till next post.
This image was created in Chaos Pro. This image was generated with the Cuberoot coloring. I also had to tweak the parameters to create that coloring. You are probably thinking that this took a while. It did. 36x antialiasing and tendrils within tendrils, it took about an hour to render at that resolution. A possibility of a video from this. I don't know yet. Till next post.
It was created using Chaos Pro. I named it the White Stag because the mandelbrot boundary is white. This particular image was generated with a special distance estimator I have developed and also antialiased to 49x. It takes the final image and automatically puts it out in black and white. Was this what they looked like on old monitors. I guess not because they couldn't zoom in this far back in the 80's. A video will be available on youtube when I get the time
