I can see how that might happen, I haven't made a gnarl in quite a long time. I guess the reason is that it is hard to create masks and the such. I used to love making them, maybe I should go back. I did make a image with duckytalis and I got lost in it.
The 'New Experiences' image was a very nice one... there's a lot of unexplored potential in ducky/talis I think as people generally just use it to make 'classic' ducky fractals and don't explore it with non-typical colouring formulas. Or maybe they do and I can't recognise it People prefer to view variations on standard themes, I've found...and I guess to make such variations too.
Thanks! "Classic" ducky fractals are about the only ones I can recognize what formula they have used. I am not very good at telling which is what. I like viewing pretty things...And this is probably the deepest fractal art conversation I have ever had. I find playing with different coloring formulas relaxing, and usually don't know what typical is....
I'm the same. In this case typical = those formulas that produce a charactaristic ducky/talis look, I guess. Like Lyapunov, Statistics (I think)... using talis with other colouring formulas can produce some strange results that aren't clearly duckies and are not so popular either...
I am usually far from typical anyway. I might just go back and look at the formula with those coloring formulas. Next question, is "not so popular" pertaining to those formulas that are being used, or does it mean the works afterwards? Does that make any sense?
I guess both...actually I guess the 'problem' is more that I don't know how to make pretty things out of less commonly used formulas, or maybe that I know what people like but choose to instead create something that looks interesting to me
Thanks very much! There are several such formulas and finding the sweet spots, manipulating them in the julia window, trying various colourings and gradients is all relaxing fun, as the patterns they create look lovely without worrying about making lots of layers and masking, etc. Like gnarls, I like making duckies as a break from trying to get better at more 'technical'stuff.
