Fossil 2FossilUp in Smoke
Fossil
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: Description: It took me some time to get to the basic shape--some two sessions of one hour each--and a lot more to try (and fail miserably) to get it to look realistic. I am uploading the image I have so far, which has the meager resolution of 640x480, but still took me two hours and twelve minutes to render, due to the 0.1 threshold and depth two antialiasing. I believe I overplayed that one, and am correcting it at the moment.

As you can see, I am still toying with attractors, which is all I used to shape, texture and color this image. It has 5 layers and the basic shape is a CosMartin attractor. The bone texture I got with fBm, but it definitely needs work. The ground is a Sierpinski attractor heavily disturbed.

The eye in the middle is 100% incidental, believe it or not.

As always, your comments and suggestions are very welcome.

yes, that is the reason, the other reason is that i put the formula in the wrong file, .ucl instead of .ulb because i thought this would work when uploading an .lb file sad
but you can try uf5 easily, it is almost free to use!

I see the Supershape formula under ck.ucl, but as I try to use it, all I come up with is the message "contains errors". That may be due to the fact that I am using UF4 instead of 5, right?

Anyway, I finally got a texture with which I am pleased on this image, which can be found on this version, already uploaded to my gallery.

Take care. smiley

you have to wait until kerry mitchel has created the library file form me, after that you can update your formulas collections, and would find it under ck.ulb

right now, i can point you to my alternating fractal formula, where you can choose 2 fractals to be combined in the iteration loop, after updating your formula collection you find the Alternating Formula under "public/ck.ufm"

after kerry mitchel has updated my account you can even nest the alternating formula, meaning, you can alternate an alternating formula ....

cheers

Thanks for the comment, Trifox. I still have to try a variation of the sand structure on the fossil itself to see if it works, but unfortunately Sierpinski is also very expensive.

You are totally right: no antialias, no quality. Still, I think I overplayed it a little, as some parts of the structure seem a bit blurred.

Where can I find your supershape orbit? I'd love to give it a try.

great sand texture, the structure is cool, perhaps we can open up a tutorial section for ultrafractal on how to use the new features, i see you will be pleased about my supershape  orbit... and anti alias is expensive but it has to be done, pictures with no anti alias look horrible, especially fractals....
