The Wave by LaPurr The Wave by LaPurr
Ultra Fractal


This is my favorite again: Phoenix Julia from the Standard Folder

When I was starting this fractal, I saw a likeness to my favorite Japanese painting:
The Great Wave at Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai [link]
and tried to bring it out as much as possible...within reason, of course.


Full view is recommended for the details.


This was my entry for the One Fractal Summer contest 2006. It took third place.

Blue, silver, turquoise, and white is my favorite color combination. There's not really any white in this, but it is very beautiful.

It should have come first! I miss the ocean too! And someone else who believes we came from the ocean, the Elaine Morgan(and some bloke) Sea-Monkey theory. I think it makes so much more sense than the more widely accepted Savannah theory, and it s earning more weight with her book The DeScent
of Woman and the new evidence of archaeology and genetics. i never grew up too. I guess you like cats too?

I'm very interested in the information in her brain and what I can learn from her and the classes. Hopefully I can take her courses in the fall.

I never did warm up to Ultra Fractal, but when I see stuff like this - which is just incredible beyond words - I wish I could create stuff like this, too. Stunning. :faint:
