ROSE by DeepChrome ROSE by DeepChrome
Been a while since I uploaded anything.

Also been a while since I did fractaling.

Anyways, started messing around in Apo3D out of boredom about 2 nights ago, made this and another fractal. Then I screwed up the save, and considered it a lost cause. Last night, I go looking again to see if I can find it (and stupidly forgetting to save the params of the fractal I was working on at the time, AGH...).

Lo and behold, there it is! So I rendered it.

Then I moaned and groaned about the grain that turned up even at 10,000 on a 3200-ish pixel wide piece. :| Going to start rendering at 20,000, 30,000 to see if I can kill the grain.

Anyways, carefully blurred the grainier parts using a tablet pen and Photoshop's Blur Tool. I think I got it down to where it's just a soft nubbly texture. Please, feel free to tell me how that works for you or whether I should just try and re-render this at a higher quality.

This is also one of the first white-background pieces I've done in a long, long time. The grain looked far worse against black, so I decided to try it against white, and it looks good.

Enjoy, comment, critique, whatever. :)

Either way, I'm baaaaaack.

Thank you. I just started tweaking and then suddenly went "zomg, fractal rose!" That pretty much sealed the piece's fate. :giggle:

[01:03] <hiro|draw> CHROME, I LOVE YOUR ROSE FRACTAL

i however would liken the flower to a primitive dicot, like a magnolia or something
roses never have this many petals

Heh, that's true. But it is indeed a "fractal" rose, and fractals have...many iterations.

Anyways, thank you, and sorry for missing your line in IRC. :(
