Most beautiful fractal by Swaroop Most beautiful fractal by Swaroop
Note that the title 'most beautiful fractal' doesnt mean that I am claiming this to be the best fractal on DA. I am only indicating that this is the best among those created by me.

In an attempt to make a 'balanced gallery' , on the lines of 'balanced diet' in order to reduce monotony of space art, I have rendered this fractal using Gimp, . A smaller version existed, but I had deleted it when I tried to scrap it :(


Dedicating this to gimp.org without which software most of my gallery would have been nonexistant
this is a huge version :)

Making :
1) the smaller version was the inspiration for the bigger one.
2) I tried to 'redo' it by acrylics on white paper. But as u can guess, it didnt work. So, I scanned the art paper and then , used it as the background for rendering this fracal in Gimp.
The background paper being a real one, and fractal a computer generated one, and above it a 'watercolor filter' , this is as close to a real one as one can get.

Very great picture, both the picture and the background. The colors work nicely too. It may not be the most beautiful fractal, but it is surely one of the best out there! At least, the ones I've seen...

Awesome! This reminds me of when I paint with watercolor. When I dip the brush in the water, the color spreads and move into a very miscellaneous design. Good work! :D

apophysis is an awesome free program

For this I used the inbuilt feature in Gimp 1.2.3

But you should render it as a png file...it'll give a much better resolution and make it look a whole lot sharper. :nod:

awful typography and quality here...colours are pretty bad too, and bit small for a wallpaper huh? Im not sure on your concept for this piece, I mean i know its abstract but whats did you think of when making this piece? Kinda looks like an angry piece, something like this i would make if im stressed or something...some nice shapes in there, perhaps shrink it too like 50% and have it on the right side of a bigger piece would fit it right.

much prefer some of your other stuff, but this is nice in a few ways, im sure some ppl will like it :p

First of all thanks for taking the time to comment on a lesser artist :)

And, I had no concept about this piece, as according to my belifs, abstract/psychedeleic art are genres where 'randomness' is the norm.

yah its an angry piece actually,

and , u ask what did I keep in mind while doing it? I only wanted to prove a point that apophysis is NOT required to do descent looking fractals. :) This was done with free software named Gimp :) in linux
