looks like a bit like a silver Widmanstatten pattern in mirror symmetry,
or the surface of Europa in a mirror symmetry.

RE: 3D MANDLEBROT - Vianova - 10-04-2017

that is amazing.

heavy metal scifi fractal fantasy.

that distant background coming up beyond the horizon is excellent.
the alien critters look like they might have an ... attitude.

Dust Devil

The background started with a desaturated GIMP plasma
which I thought might contain the patterns in a storm globe,
and therefore would work with the Details Equalizer filter
immediately following rendering the worked...
and didn't turn blocky.

The top layer was used before as part of another creature,
so it lost definition after scaling and further distortions.

I saw that loss of resolution in the dust devil right away and wondered about it.

This last one you posted is just excellent.

You could bubble or sphere out the triangular background with a vertically elongated oval bubble.
Or bubble inwards!
The two figures on the left are identical but different sizes,
and the one on the right is ... closely mirrored of those two?

RE: 3D MANDLEBROT - Kalter Rauch - 10-07-2017

Actually none of them are identical...
the angle of the feet shows the effect 
of different distortion lens settings.
Beyond a narrow range the object gets too narrow.
It depends on the shape.

This next came from thinking of William Shatner
looking out the window of that TZone airplane.
The idea became what might be seen
through the porthole of some future space mission...

looks good at 500%,
bottom center had the best view.
Also got discombobulated in the symmetry rotations,
and could not rotate one last 15 degrees for the perspctive I wanted.

The ring of 12 faces change appearance
depending on whether a face is at the top or bottom.
I think Archimboldo has some paintings with that property.

This article explains the use of noise as a fractal source...

"Each coherent-noise function that is part of a Perlin-noise function is called an octave. These functions are called octaves because each function has, by default, double the frequency of the previous function; musical tones have this property as well. Perlin noise generated with more octaves produce more detailed coherent noise, at a cost of additional calculation time.
Perlin noise is fractal in nature; a zoomed-in section of Perlin noise tends to look like the original section. Natural objects also have this property; for example, a twig from a tree resembles a branch of the tree, which in turn resembles the original tree. Because of this property, Perlin noise is ideal for generating natural, self-similar textures such as granite, wood, marble, and clouds. It is also ideal for generating realistic terrain.
Ken Perlin invented Perlin noise in ~1983. Because his invention is used everywhere in the special-effects industry, he won an Academy Award®. "

The foreground landscape in the last image is an awesome overlay,
on the background textures as they overlay or overshadow each other as well.

Some (most) images I have to salt with noise
to eliminate the "topological" effect
that mars many smooth images.

RE: 3D MANDLEBROT - Vianova - 10-18-2017

That is just wild.
the object looks like it is orbiting a few km above the surface of a planet.
The 3D relief on the object is excellent.
It's a large figure, but I will try it.

and there it is

[Image: 7tigZZT.jpg]

great resolution at 400-500%, ... outrageous facial reliefs actually,
top center is excellent.

RE: 3D MANDLEBROT - Vianova - 10-21-2017

That last one is outstanding.
I tried it and failed.
Perhaps it was the hexagonal choice of geometry.
I have a more consistent failure rate with finishing hexagonal reconstructs into artistic impact.

RE: 3D MANDLEBROT - Vianova - 10-26-2017

two spectacular images in a row!
I will try one soon, been busy with a plethroa of projects, obligations.
This last one still has some remnant sawtoothing at high mag,
but you managed to get the two sets of similar forms in the octa-wheel there,
and none of the forms match each other,
none are replicated, 
and all have their own independent expressive subtleties,
that differentiate each one from their similar counterparts.

RE: 3D MANDLEBROT - Kalter Rauch - 10-26-2017

The last image is a 4th power Juliabulb inversion...
so it was all rendered at 1 pass.
The structure seems swastikoidal.

From 10 layers of CMYRGB+ neutral density fog layers all run through various GIMP filters...
