Made in UltraFractal 5 from a standard Julia, using tessalation and perspective. I’ve been playing with black and white for the past few weeks. It’s a lot more difficult than I expected to get the right contrast. I finally ended up rendering this as a psd file and adding layer effects in Photoshop CS to bring out the detail more.

    Wow! It was well worth the time and energy. This is quite beautiful and the black and white enhances the beautiful forms with equisite depth. Superb work!

  • Thank you! I was a little nervous about uploading this.

    I love the 3D depth and textures. You’ve done well, as B&W is hard to pull off. :
