A Gathering on Meerkat Isle

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve taken a somewhat long break from posting new content. Unfortunately, time, energy and circumstances have not been good friends with me during this recent year, so my productivity had come to a bit of a stand-still. In light of all that, I was very excited to recently discover FlowScape, an amazing little program that lets you create breathtaking 3D landscapes, images, and videos with minimal investment in time and effort.

Just what the doctor ordered! Easy graphics!

Boy, I’m so happy to be living in the future. Back in the day, I can remember spending literally weeks coding, rendering, recoding and re-rendering a single Persistence of Vision (POVRay) image until my PC passed out from exhaustion. Even now, a single frame of my 3D fractal animations can take as long as 4-6 hours to render, depending on its complexity. This FlowScape animation that I’m posting today took me all of one (1) day to build, render, and edit to video. One. Day.

I hope that you like it. I know it’s a bit silly and pointless, and yes – I know some of the little critters are badly positioned. But most of them look OK though, huh?

More to come (sometime) in the near future.

Enjoy.

Mandelbulb3D Animation: Spun Out of the Blue

The fractal shapes in this video remind me of the exquisite industrial art created by metal spinners. Metal spinning is thought to be one of the oldest art forms that manipulate the shape of metal. Developed in either ancient China or ancient Egypt, metal spinning and other lathe work were practiced by most industrialized societies including the Vikings. Even Paul Revere was an expert metal spinner.

If you ever find yourself with a few moments of spare time, go to YouTube and search for “metal spinning” videos. They are mesmerizing. In the meantime, however, please enjoy my latest video.
