Where Do Fractals Come From? by 

This is my first 3D experiment using Photoshop CS5. What a neat program! I used some of my Apo fractals on the cubes (all 6 sides are shown between the 3 cubes). The background is another Apo fractal using only one variation and one transform. I hope you enjoy it!

Fractals made in Apophysis 7X v15 and postwork and 3D work done in Photoshop CS5.

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 image and a most evocative title, Peggi. I had tried something like this in Powerpoint when I first got started in 2009, but it only supports 90 KB images, and cool fractals like these deserve so much higher resolution :o)))

    Echoing the response of Druidstorm (Malcolm) I might have answered that fractals come from color mapping of the convergent or divergent orbital velocities of iterative approximations of equations involving solutions in the real and complex number planes…but I think a better answer is that fractals come from the creative imaginations of gifted digital artists like you. Best, David

  • Love your comment, David! I am having so much fun playing with the new Photoshop, but I still use PhotoPlus for some things and GIMP for others. I’m so glad you enjoyed it and I appreciate your kind words about me. You’re too sweet, my friend!
