    What a title,David ! And what a creation !!!! Love, love this work of yours !!!! Very fine colours. Maybe some day I shall try UF,too. But I know that it is not easy,so perhaps that happens in far future.But I can always come here to look and admire your great works with this program !!! Hugs Marjut

  • Thank you so much again, Marjut, for your fave and wonderful comments. Actually, the main program in this one is Mandelbulb3D, which is free and has many published parameters on dA to give you a good start. Peggi (Wolfepaw) has been using it longer than I have; you might also ask her about it, but I think it is a little easier to learn than UF or Apo, although each one helps you learn the other…the first fractal program is always the hardest, I think :o)))

    So good I read your writing,only end of it.heh. Not true ,I read all of it. But then I wrote about UF.heh. I looked in Google and Youtube, mandelbulb. Perhaps it is worth of try.Just do not know where I get time to use it,I have Apo now and Bryce,as you know. CONGRATULATIONS on your featuring,too,dear friend !!! This collection of Kira, it is amazing,full of gorgeous fractals.And your work,it really belongs there,your fantastic creation. Hugs Marjut
