BrownGrafix is back! Again!

Well, once again is back up and running.

About 3-4 weeks ago I made a colossally unfortunate mistake that resulted in the total trashing of the website. However, rather than recreating the site from (non-existent) backups, I took the opportunity to re-imagine and rebuild the site from scratch. I apologize for the resulting brief outage and truly appreciate your patience as the website finally emerges from the ashes of destruction.

I do hope you find the new look and feel (as well as the content) enjoyable and/or interesting.

POVRay Animations: Toy Robots (2014)

Earlier this year I had an idea for a contemporary take on the classic toy robot with the blockety head and flashing lights. When I was a little kid playing on the mean streets of San Diego, I had one of these required boyhood gadgets and I loved it to death, broken arm, legs and all.

Unfortunately while developing this project the POVRay code got a little too convoluted and I lost a little too much interest. Funny how that seems to happen a lot.

Here are a few brief animation tests I created before dropping the project.

Here’s another interesting Mandelbulb3D fractal created by twisting up an “Amazing Surface”. This reminds me of something you’d see on a cuckoo clock.

Mandelbulb3D Animation: Afflux (2014)

Well, it’s been about a year since my last post. Sorry about that. It’s been a busy and eventful year in real life, and I truly appreciate your patience.

Regarding this video: Afflux (as a term) refers to the act of flowing to or toward. I do hope you enjoy the ominous flow of this latest Mandelbulb3D fractal video.
