Created in Fractal Science Kit based on equation Convergent Map 10 with complex inversion transforms Ztrans31 and CpxF61 as a Mandelbrot image, with some brightness adjustment in MS Office Picture Manager. Best if viewed larger.

Don’t worry – this is safe to view. The title just refers to the 3 x’s near the center of the image (probably related to “saddlepoints” if you want to be mathematical about it).

    OOoooo! Gorgeous work. Well done.

  • Thanks!! I meant to post this one when I made it a few weeks ago, but a senior moment caused it to get lost in the shuffle for a while ;-)

    Another X would have made it a Queensland beer . . .

  • Thanks, Hugh, that’s a great idea! I did, however, try to warn folks that those Foster’s cans were too big, and might cause a problem:

    Gorgeous work David. Big congrats on the features

  • Thanks, Thea! The design is interesting, but I may revisit this one someday and try to improve the colors; I know so many more tricks and techniques now, but my expectations are also getting higher. Like many things in life, this is a blessing AND a curse :-)))
