Did you enjoy the trippy Fractal flythrough video I published two weeks ago? Today, Gleb Alexandrov uses Mandelbulber as a startingpoint for an exploration of inspiration.
In these series of mini tutorials we'll explore strange and exciting ways to kick-start creativity and overcome the fear of the blank page (or viewport).
To make our brain working we may need to throw in some abstract shape - say, inkblot. Then passing the hand-made variation of the Rorschah test, we start to recognize shapes and images. Eventually one of the images that we suddenly 'grasp' will serve as a starting point for our picture.
For sure, visualization of mathematical formulas, such as fractals, is a great source of patterns for sudden inspiration. Today we'll talk about fractals and its 3d representation using free software called Mandelbulber.
