Octopus Dragon's Lair by MANDELWERK Octopus Dragon's Lair by MANDELWERK
Having upgraded the mandelbulb spacemachine with the latest "flip" formulas [link] I went back to the blattaria fractal...

...and simply flipped it.

I ended up inside the dense cube but managed to find a cavity, pressed the render button and after 8 hours (Yes this is a demanding fractal to render) this is what i saw…

This seems to be some kind of breeding chamber, Octopus dragon embryos is said to spend about ten thousand years here before they hatch.
I will do everything to find the mother of all dragons…

Thank you Jesse, flip is the new rotation! :)
I am astouned by these fractals once again… Structures I have never seen in a mandelbox before...
A tip: try to flip your old interesting pieces, a lot of mine shows new shapes when doing so...

Mandelbulb 3D, Clouds added in Photoshop.

BTW, do you see the dragonfly?

It's like Milkdrop 2's description once said... Something like... The resulting orgasm of the fusion of mathematics and art.
I might not always comment, but expect much of your work to be favourited!

:tantrum: <--- because I spent an entire 5 minutes trying to figure out how to use the Mesmerized emoticon, and failed. :P

You're most welcome and thank you as well, Mandelwurk! I am somewhat patient although not enough that I could stop myself from running out and trying it and doing a pic with it already :lol: My head is swimming with wonderful possibilities and my deepest thanks to you for opening my eyes to this 3D fractal world!

Oh absolutely amazing!!:eyepopping: I would love to let my 3D characters roam around in there. Really does have the feel of some kind of Dragon Steam punk lair.

That would be a nice combo Debra, I think it soon will be possible to export these 3D fractals as 3D meshes...
I hope to see them on the movies some day... :)
