My 4th DD, thank you deviants!!

Made with Mandelbulb3D 1.8.9 - using the new volumetric light!
HeightMapIFS + _Rotate + ABoxVaryScale + ABoxModKali

How to use Volumetric Lights in Mandelbulb3D? =>
Go into the coloring tab of the main window and click on the "Dyn fog on it" button: it will transform into volumetric light. In the text box next to it, you put the number of the light source you want to use for volumetric (by default it's the 1st one) then you can render the image. If the light direction is not interesting, you can change it using the sliders in the Global Light tab of the light which is selected (make sure that the light in On, and also note that volumetric lighting also works with Positional light, as in the latest image by Kraftwerk). Then you can modify the intensity of the light by playing with the d.Fog sliders in the Lighting window. As a side note, if you use Hard shadows, don't forget to try to tick the "Softer HS" box in the post process window, and try to increase the Radius value. It will blur hard shadow edges for more realistic renders. Hope this helps.

This is purely breath-taking!

The texturing and detail of the structure helps to show you've put a great deal of time and effort into creating this image.

The emphasis of the vertical forms in the structure help to create a sense of "vastness" to me. I can almost imagine myself standing at the foot of the building at looking up towards the vaulted cieling, plus walking straight through the interior.

The way the light intensifies at the far end in the distance also helps to give the rendering some "depth".

My only main quibble is the pattern on the ground. It looks too much like the pattern on a rug. Is this supposed to be a ruin situated somewhere in a desert? Apart from the pattern on the ground, that's the impression I'm getting.

Holy smokes! This is nothing short of freaking amazing. Seriously, how long did this take?! The detail is remarkable, like grade A, remarkable. It's absolutely stunning and very easy on the eyes. I have been staring at this for nearly 15 minutes and still am stunned by all the detail this piece has. I love the color scheme too, the orange-yellow from the sun rays, and the green/aqua color straight ahead. It's a wonderful piece you have made. My only critique is something along the lines of what someone else said, the flooring sort of looks like a rug pattern, but it really doesn't affect the image what so ever, I guess it's more of a personal thing when looking at the flooring. Again, brilliant work, really!

I never loved mandelbulb until RIGHT NOW. I've been an apophysis user for a while and never really wanted to learn mandelbulb but this is the moment where i realize what I've been missing.

Très joli. =) Les couleurs et les formes me font penser à certains tableaux de Zdzislaw Beksinski. =)
