Golden Gnarl Ball in Fairyland by 

Another UF creation. I keep finding neat formulae to play with. I like the gold sparkly quality in this one. I hope you like it, too.

Made in UF5 and postwork done in GIMP.

I am a recent fractal artist, just since 2008. I have fallen in love with this type of art because of the infinite variety of form, fabulous colors and great lighting effects that can be achieved. The software is mostly free and I dabble with most of them. If you enjoy fractal art, please take a look at my gallery. I would be thrilled if you stop by and say “Hi” and make a comment (or not)!

    Great work!
    Yes, I do like the gold. I keep wondering myself how to get it into my manipulated photos.

  • Thank you very much! You can put it as a separate layer and put your photos over it. Now, which photos you use is up to you. Fractals work great in manipulations. They add a really cool element of detail and design, I think. I have made some collages using fractals and I know a lot of people who use them in photomanips, as well.

    Beautiful glittering sphere!

  • Thank you very much, Suzanne! Yes, I liked the sphere myself. I kept playing with it. The first rendition had a basic gnarl design in it. And, if you look closer at it, each of those little facets on the sphere is a gnarl! But, I changed the coloring algorithm and the single gnarl turned into all those little squares on the sphere. I liked the effect, so I went with it.

    slightly reminiscent of disco, yet much more elegant!!!
    I love it, Peggi!!!

  • Thank you so much, Janet! I almost named this Disco Ball in Fairyland. You must be reading my mind! I’m so glad you enjoyed this one!
