coral rift by lyc coral rift by lyc
rendering info:

time: 3 whole days (cpu running over 100 deg celsius)
software: my toy rendering system, allura (photoshop only for text)
wtf: crazy unprincipled iteration formula with zillions of iterations, producing an ultrafine "net" of torn microsurfaces (in consequence the surface normal computation is approximate at best)

The anti-aliasing algorithm must have gone crazy trying to smooth out all that fine detail. Almost like cotton candy. Great job!

How did your processor not melt? The thermal paste should have crumbled under those extremes. Very cool piece!

HEY ! Hi there !

How how can we get your toy ?

It seams to work prety well in All kind of fractals from organic mandrelbot to Even terrain ...

And better yu can already export this fractals to 3D Isnt ??
[link] lol WHOW very nicee....

Cheers !

A wounderfull 2012 Full of achievments man !

btw, it's rendered with my own 3d render program; although now, i think it would be better to render it using indigo renderer :sherlock:

Art? Maybe not. Beautiful? Definitely. Makes me think of some kind of alien landscape, add a starscape to the background and it could be.

On a side note, you voluntarily let your PC overheat for renders? I normally limit a render on any program to 3 cores (75%). Even if I turn off the thermal alarm I can almost hear my PC's silent screams of agony otherwise...

thanks :) the lighting is standard skylight model (described by preetham shirley smits) used in most realistic 3d rendering engines, so i can't take credit for that i'm afraid ;)

Do you write your formulas yourself though?

all my images are done with my own programs; the formula used for this fractal is my own, but that's not always the case :)

Please tell me that you've rendered this at a higher resolution.

And you're apparently both a fan of Autechre and Diablo, excellent. I saw that you mentioned Brothomstates specifically—I haven't got any of his stuff but I'm familiar with a remix that he did for Proem. Check out Proem's Negativ or Socially Inept if you haven't.

:iconlyc:
lyc Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2009
eh nope, sorry! it's just another random fractal render, lost forever to the sands of time ;P

i've heard both of those albums, proem is pretty cool :) the best way to become acquainted with brothomstates is to check out [link] (download and run demo if possible, else check [link])
