I've been playing with 3D Modeling, and "Skinning" 3D Figures with Fractals and Animating the Character!

If you've seen my latest post in "Chaoscope Meets Mutatorkammer" (here - http://www.fractalforums.com/index.php?topic=473.15 ) then you have seen some abstract work.

Here is my First attempt at "skinning" one of the given 3D Humans (Victoria - DAZ 3D Studio Freeware) with that same fractal!  Plus one more for the face, and one for the background!
<a href="http://i106.photobucket.com/player.swf?file=http://vid106.photobucket.com/albums/m278/sockratease/e9ee0d7d.flv" target="_blank">http://i106.photobucket.com/player.swf?file=http://vid106.photobucket.com/albums/m278/sockratease/e9ee0d7d.flv</a>

The animation is HORRIBLE!!

But it's my first effort.

I wanted to have the pretty lady fly gracefully  around the spiral, and grow in the process to make the illusion of 3D more pronounced.


I need a LOT of practice.  The end is pretty much what I had in mind, and thought I set up in keyframes...  but the beginning is both slow and WAY off the path I was trying to set!!  But The End is Great!  I  got the "Sliding down the curve" to look good!!

But I am having fun playing with all the different ways to use fractals I can think of, and with some work on animation and lighting (Much work on Lighting!) this could be interesting!

I make AMATEUR little Flash Games, and think I may be able to create a 3D Fractal World type thing eventually.

Could be fun!

Practice is next.

Then better software.  Then a computer with a Real processor instead my crappy little celeron thing.  Maybe a nice video card.  And Time!  I'll need Time to make this work, but that was my first effort at anything like this, so I posted it!

Life is complex - It has real and imaginary components.

I had done something similar years ago, but not with people as the target for a new "skin".  I used various objects instead and wrapped fractals around them.  Even animated a few, depending on what the object was (such as a plane, vehicle, etc...).

It does take a lot of patience and work.  And having a fast processor (or several of them) does wonders for cranking out animations.

<--- Not 3D, but I thought it was a pretty nifty idea at the time, and still do, a couple of years later...

Though I wish I'd applied a mesh warp like I did on this one to get a more 3D effect; without it, the fractal looks more behind me than on me.

my 1st animations were horrible too, in case you missed them.
practice makes (almost) perfect.

suggestion: a more human looking girl, not some purple alien
