New Mandelbulb!

I really like the gift I got from Mandelbulb 3D this evening.  It looks to me like a deep cavern, textured and whimsical, like a cool place to explore, or to make a special hide-out in.  Hop on over to When Math Meets Art, Gallery Two, and enjoy!

A New Fractal In Gallery Two

I finally got to posting a new fractal.  This one, I have in several forms, was playing with it in post work, and don’t you know, I just kept settling my eye on the original, unedited fractal?  I just love it, just the way it came out of Xaos.

Enjoy!

If this were a fabric, I would wear it every day!

New Fractal In Gallery Two

This looks to me like an aerial view of shore meeting land.

Update!

It’s finally time to start posting updates in their own posts, so you don’t have to scroll down the welcome page forever and ever to catch the newest doodles.

I was enjoying another OCD moment in Xaos, and came up with something that looks to me like tatted lace.  It was delightful to create!  The full size pic is in the gallery, “Friends From Other Neighborhoods.”

Enjoy!

This one reminds me of tatting...without the poked fingers!  In post work, I duplicated this image, and took out the black background.  I was then able to apply the transparent image to the original, and use it as a texture. The wonders of digital editing never cease to amaze me!

Welcome!

Welcome to Schmoozelfleugen’s sister site, SchmoozelFracs!  I started this page just for my weird digital art addiction…Fractals.

I love Fractals. I love the colors, the textures, the abstracts…I especially love Apophysis.  Who could have dreamed that Math could blend so well into the Art world? But it does…
A Mathmetician would call the gradients, “coloring algorithisms.” I call it painting with all of the colors of a rainbow.  The Mathmetician would call it weights and computations. I call it depth and texture.
The Mathmetician would call it a formula. I call it ART!
Either way, the Matmetician and I get along beautifully with this one, simple program. I don’t pretend to understand how it works, I just click and move, rotate and…play! I play until something makes me say, “Whoa! COOOOL!” I play until I can taste the colors, feel the texture, sense the depth.
The Mathmetician has generously provided me with the tools to make my colorful dreams and textures come true. For this, I am eternally grateful.

Some of these have had post work done in Paint Shop Pro, but most have just come right from Apophysis, and my own inate sense of weirdness. They make great wallpapers, so feel free to snag them and share them!

Schmoozelfleugen isn’t going anywhere.  I’m not putting down my garden, and I’m certainly not ever putting down my crochet hook or drop spindle!  Poke through both sites, as your Muse directs…and relax, and above all, have FUN.

A little Update!  I’ll post updates here, so you’ll know where to look for new fractals.  I found my first Apophysis cross, the one that started our family Easter fractal tradition, and tucked it into “When Math Meets Art: Gallery Two”

So that you don’t have to go through the whole gallery again, here’s a smaller version to peek at.

This is the first Apophysis cross I came up with, that started an Easter family tradition.

Update!  I’m playing with a new fractal toy, Xaos.  Just learning what all it will do right now, and it’s deceptively easy.  I’m finding that the more I poke, the better it gets, and the Help files are wonderful!

This one is all about bold Christmas colors, and textures applied in Paint Shop Pro.  I’m running a stone-age version of PSP, the last of Jasc.  It still works!

Paint Shop Pro, by graphics program standards, is inexpensive.  I did all of the texturing with native filters, included in the program.  For a free graphics editing program, I would say that The Gimp would be an awesome, cross-platform  alternative that will do as much, and most likely a lot more, than my version of PSP.   Xaos is also free, and cross-platform.  Go grab them!  You could be doing stuff like this in no time!

I'm adjusting to the learning curve in Xaos.  This one is all about texture, and bold Christmas colors.

A really BIG copy of this can be found in “Gallery Two”. Feel free to grab it and print it. It is signed, but not obtrusively so.  Just don’t sell it, OK?  That would be cheesy.  Enjoy!

Update!  Yet another big, printable fractal up in “Gallery Two.” This one presented itself bright and bold, giving me a total, “WHOA!” moment. Just click the pic for the pass-through, and enjoy!

Playing with my new toy and had the best "WHOA!" moment!  Had to stop, save and post this one before I lost it!

Another update!  I’m having a ball with Xaos, and came up with two new fractals.  They’re up in “Friends From Other Neighborhoods, hanging out with Merwin and Nerwin…all of them. Enjoy!
