zippo - mandelbulb aniversary edition

Description: ok, here's my birthday present for the mandelbulb. i have to admit, that i had to go two steps back, in order to rescue this image. my method of creating reiefs is far away from perfection and it only looks good under several circumstances. further development steps (one lighter closed, one open) weren't succsessful. maybe it depends on my vanishing ability to control cinema 4d.

the funny side story: i created the main geometry of this lighter not a month after twinbee published his formula. i had no clou and made this to staple a quaternion relief on it... the original can be found under: http://www.renderosity.com/mod/gallery/index.php?image_id=2001440&user_id=263774&np&np

the bulb is the z-buffer of an almost untouched starting parameter taken from mb3d. but it needed manual adjustments up to the fourth digit.

the following quote can be found in many sources and from many authors. here is the translation of my own version:
"tradition is a lantern.
the fool keeps hold of it,
the sage use it to illuminate his way"

have fun!

Hmmm, must agree with bib here, do not want to choose a winner yet, but this is on the list for sure.

If you ever put this in production, send me a PM and I will start smoking again!  afro
