interesting.  I was thinking that, one thing about fractals is that they have no "smooth" surfaces, but I guess the ball shapes here aren't really smooth -- the infinite complexity has just gotten so small you can't render it, so it appears round.

(As a mathematician and computer geek, I've always been fascinated by fractals.)

No, in this image, the smooth parts are really smooth :) Thanks!

But I made variants with fractal details everywhere, like this one:

"(As a mathematician and computer geek, I've always been fascinated by fractals.)" Same here except that I'm not really a mathematician :)

Interesting.  Yeah, it's been years since I was a real, "practicing" mathematician, but I think he still surfaces now and then...  ;-)

OK, so with the "bubbles", it's an infinite series of spheres inserted into the fractal structure?  I guess I still have a lot to learn about fractals, eh? ;-)

Kind of. There are many ways to build fractals. An key development happened in 2009 with the discovery of the Mandelbulb: www.skytopia.com/project/fract…

OK, wow.... this could be quite a deep dive. ;-)

I'll have to bookmark that article and go back when I have time to really absorb it.  In the mean time, I'm enjoying your renderings, both as images and as 3D printing!

Thanks Johan! Actually it's not black, it's a mixture of black, gold and steel powder :)

MANDELWERK Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2014
All right! Even better!
Interesting with the steel powder, how did you implement that?
Reply
:iconbib993:
bib993 Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I just 'recycled' powder from previous manual sanding sessions of other models, and mixed it with the paint, The recipe was about 40% black gloss paint + 30% gold enamel paint + 30% steel power. That gives interesting reflects but not as I would have expected. To get vibrant moire kind of effect I would have needed nanoparticles...

That is so cool. I was wondering when someone would pull a 3D fractal out of one of those things!
