12/4/11 – TOP TEN WINNER in the Amazing Abstracts challenge held by the Hosting Tutorial Class group.

Made in UltraFractal 5 from a Mandelbrot-Nova. Levels adjustment was made in Photoshop CS. I decided to challenge myself to find a fractal that I had given up on and the original for this one had been sitting on my computer for a couple of years. I spent another hour tweaking the original until I was satisfied.

Mi Esperanza means “my hope” in Spanish. This work is inspired by my “Biblia Plenitud” because I can’t think of anything that could give me more hope than the words in my Bible.

Below is the original version of this, which I never rendered. This is just a screenshot.

    I haven’t even figured out how to do fractals yet, so you doing a lot better than I am

  • Thank you, Shulie! If you ever get the urge to try UltraFractal, you can get a free trial at http://www.ultrafractal.com. They have some really good built in tutorials that should help. I tried to learn Apophysis first and just couldn’t get the hang of it. I know many artists who love using it. There is a great tutorial group here for Apophysis users called Apophysis Tutorial Fun.
