The colouring methods used result in a metallic finish to the main image of shiny stainless steel and copper. I find the background interesting as it is textured and some sort of pattern is emerging, I only get this effect with this Mandelbrot.
The fractal itself is a Magnet Model 2 Mandelbrot and is shown here in full.
Created using mars and expanded using phobos (see my public profile).
