Fractal Landscapes & Fractal Scenes - DA News link - [link]
Here is a Feature as part of the
Project Educate: Fractals Week 2011!
Please see details on
As we all know, in simple terms... Fractal Art is the graphical representation of complex Mathematical equations....We use a Fractal generating software to create fractals- Some are free, some you have to buy....here is a link where you can download loads of free Fractal software...[link]
There is a series of 6 You-tube videos, which I personally recommend you to watch to be familiar with Fractals....Fractals - The Colors Of Infinity by Arthur C. Clarke here is the link to the first video, I assume that you can find the continuation after that...if not just note me I'll send you the links...[link]
Please watch an interesting speech by Mr. Benoit B Mandelbrot, Father of Fractal Geometry here.....[link]
Most of the Fractal generating software, allow us to create a single layer fractal image. eg. Apophysis, Tiarazon, etc...Some programs like Fractal Explorer, Madelbulb 3D etc...allow us to add external image as background using the program....but more advanced software like Ultra Fractal allow us to create fractals with as many layers as we want...thus encouraging the artists creativity. Because of these facilities so many artists started creating Fractal Landscapes using single or Multilayered fractals...
Here I'm trying to feature some interesting Fractal Landscapes & Fractal Scenes...created by our talented artists from DA. We can say..that Fractal Landscapes can be broadly divided in to two categories...Raw Fractal Landscapes ie, 100% created using a Fractal generating software (sometimes border excluded) & Fractal Landscapes Manipulated ie, different fractals combined in a graphic program like Photoshop or Paintshop Pro etc......I'll make two separate features for this.
We may divide these landscapes further into Natural landscapes, Fantasy landscapes, Abstract landscapes, Surrealistic landscapes, 3D landscapes etc....but here I'm showing all of them under the above mentioned two categories...
For creating a beautiful Fractal landscape the artist needs in-depth knowledge of the software coupled with artistic talent...Please have a look at these talented artists galleries...I'm assuring you that you'll never regret the time spent on it.
and finally some of mine also....
