 This is a vertical “slice” rotated an odd 70degree angle through Multibrot space, positioned just below the traditional Mandelbrot set. Is it a school of fish, or a lounge of lizards? I had to look up what a group of lizards was called. It reminds me of Escher's “Reptile” tiled etchings, and his choice of subject has multiple levels, rep tile. This fractal's complexity renders countless creatures.

 This leafy image is a moderate zoom in a vertical slice of the negative space under the multibrot set, with an exponent between 1 and 2. It is rendered with periodic rendering, complicated by the extra iterations required for the smoothing algorithm. The leafy, twiggy result reminds me of bamboo.

 A flutter of wings and feathers appears just underneath the traditional Mandelbrot set in the Multibrot space. The exponent is rendered vertically in this “Multibrot Slice” at a 70degree angle from the real axis. “Bluebird” won “Special Recognition” in the Light, Space, and Time Gallery 2017 “Abstracts” exhibition.

 A “Multbrot” is a variation of the Mandelbrot set rendered with an exponent other than the traditional “2.” This is a magnification of the set with a high exponent of 71. Why 71? Why not? The swirling, bubbly texture lends to its name. “Champagne” won “Special Merit” in the Light, Space, and Time Gallery 2017 ”Abstracts“ exhibition.

 You're “not supposed to” render a negabrot with escapetime mapping. It's “wrong.” That said, this is a negabrot (a Mandelbrot set with an exponent of 2) rendered with a combination of escapetime mapping and simplified Lyapunov periodic mapping. In other words, it's a “hybrid,” like a lot of plants you can find in a garden. This image reminds me of its namesake, a climbing, flowering vine.

 This is a moderate zoom into a sinewave variation of the Mandelbrot set. Traditional escapetime mapping renders it as “snow,” but periodmapping reveals a whole different picture. Careful adjustment of the color parameters produces an organic, yet otherworldly feel.

 Swirls of winter snow, crunchy autumn leaves, and hot summer breezes are all reflected in this long slice of the Multibrot set with the exponent rendered vertically just below 1. Simplified Lyapunov periodic mapping (whew) reveals intricate details in this area.

 This deep magnification of the Mandelbrot set uses complex color ramps to highlight oily, swirly forms. The limits of the ramps form broad, curving edges, creating overlapping fluid shapes. This is just one of six renders of this space, each mounted in the side of a transparent cube.

 The trig functions normally tend to produce a random mess when applied to the Mandelbrot formulas. However, since trigonometric functions are basically periodic in nature, applying periodic mapping can draw out hidden patterns. Using an arctangent variant of the Mandelbrot set with period mapping applied, a glassy, transparent image emerges.

 This is a deep magnification into the Mandelbrot set. The various cracks and veins inspired me to give it a hot, dark, deepearth look. I added the “interference” capability to my fractal application just for this particular work to increase the available complexity of the color map.

 A variant of the Mandelbrot set takes the absolute value of the formula on each iteration. The result is very different. This is a deep magnification of the “Burning Ship” fractal. It looks like you are looking upward through rippling water at an old cityscape. This fractal tends to be noisy, so rendering required 16X supersampling to smooth it out.

 The burning ship variant of the Mandelbrot set uses the absolute value (positive value) of the formula, and produces a rather noisy, turbulent result. Applying periodic rendering to the inside of the set reveals some interesting patterns. This image is technically “inside” the set, but periodic rendering brings out some normally invisible activity.

 The fractured nature of this rendering comes from the very turbulent space between 1 and 2 in the Multibrot set. The exponent is rendered on the vertical axis, with simplified Averagevector periodicity mapping to bring out the textures. This pattern reminds me of ice crystals that form overnight on the road, so I added a hint of morning sun.
