Julia: zoom = 0

Sphractals

Here are some cool fractals displayed on a sphere using polar coordinates. This first group of 4 images is of the same fractal pattern ( Mandelbrot 1 ), as the camera zooms in on the sphere. Click here to view the 3D presentation of this pattern. ( Note: at the bottom-left of the presentation are […]
