SUDDENLY GALAXY CATS

this was supposed to be a study

and then it was supposed to be halloweeny

and then that^ happened

Submitted by Sleepnaught:Larger. A Multibrot set is a generalization of the Mandlebrot set. A point C is in the Mandlebrot set if the sequence Z_n = (Z_n-1)^2 + C (Z_0 = C) does not go to infinity. The Multibrot set instead uses Z_n = (Z_n-1)^d + C, where d can be any real. Here we vary d from 2 to 6.

I don’t even understand this. But it’s mesmerizing. Hoho.

dear uninhibited-psychosis,

happy birthday yo!

have a super quick 12 since my dash leads me to believe you’ve seen the thing

Daniel asks how you make.

processing, and in particular I ~~stole~~ borrowed some of their tut code for making a normal (p = 2) mandlebrot set and generalized it to any real.

This mutant glitter snowflake is actually the generalized mandlebrot set (“multibrot”) with d running from 2 to 6. Mathematical generalization = gif potential.

### dllube asked: What do you think of chromatic aberration?

I think I have a fixation.

San would make a wildling’s wildling

To everyone’s dismay, I rediscovered the smudge tool today. Also, despite this sketch, the original is actually gorgeous.

Moebius - I am an obsessive about technique, but at the same time I think that all great artists did work on perception. This is what causes that suddenly, we are surprised by an artwork, whether by a writer, a musician, or anything; suddenly, he shows something that everyone had right in front of them but that nobody had seen. Or nobody had seen with this particular truth. Sometimes it can be very minute details, it can be the tip of nails, it can be the way hairs begin to curl, it can be how much information you use to depict an eye. For example on someone running, it’s the instant when you stop the movement. The foot is that many centimeters off the ground. It had never been done before. You see, it is small things like that.

I kinda want her gear
