I've been spending a great deal of time with various Fractal programs such as Mandelbulb 3D, Ultra Fractal, Apophysis, and some other stuff available. There are some really cool FREE programs out there for the artist looking to explore new avenues. Fractals have been around for a long time, I believe since the early 90's and I have played around with them before however, the programs now are easier to get a grip on than the ones back then. You don't have to be a math genius anymore to get something out of it. Enjoy the show!
