5.6 Lookie at what I made!April 4, 2010
I finally sat down and started playing with Chaos Pro fractal generating program.
This thing has amazingly complicated capabilities, and it’s been interesting to try them out.
I truely need a complete fractal refresher to completely appreciate the mathematics behind these designs.
This trumpet-like design was the first one I played with.
It takes a while to figure out how to get the colors to stop, many times with this pattern I saw a wonderful design and color palette and it would keep generating to the next one.
Persistance and tenacity prevailed and I used some of my ‘good experimentation techniques’ to try to figure out what each setting did.
Sometimes I would see a lot of change, sometimes I wouldn’t see any. So it goes with experiments.
I love the orange pop right next to the blue in this trumpet design.
I really like how it transparently layers into itself, which may be hard to replicate with multiple pieces of fabric.
This one started as a blue / blue design. I had it somewhat blue and red.
It was on this image I started figuring out some more of the color choices I had available. There is so many different types of options for even this design.
Couldn’t you see this as a fabric pattern? Maybe I’ll have to give Spoonflower a try.
So far this bottom one is my absolute favorite. It’s a seashell done as a plasma, to the side, but you can see the pinkish/purplish tint to the whole thing.
I put this one as my computer background, but the original image I created was on the smaller pixel resolution size and to get it to look good, I have to tile it. Which I don’t like.
I could recreate this design (or something similar) with a larger pixel size. We’ll see.
I seem to like the plasma (gives it a transparent like effect) when its applied to these shapes. I wonder how they would quilt though.
Oh yeah, one of my blogs that focuses on block & quilting design Wayne Kollinger’s Quilt Blog talked about using fibonacci to create quilt block sizes that he found from Virtual Quilter. Sounds like I have another new blog to follow!
