During my talk about fractals and fractal art, I mentioned that I would post some links to interesting fractal art info:
Ultra Fractal – This is a pay for program, but you can download the demo for free, which lets you do everything, except create high quality renders of your fractals. This program is relatively easy to learn the basics, and is well documented.
Online Ultra Fractal Courses – Janet Parke is one of the pioneers of using Ultra-Fractal, and offers online courses to help you master Ultra Fractal. They are fun, and relatively cheap.
Deviant Art – Once you have made some of your own fractals, post them on deviantart, so people can view and comment on them, or just go and check out the amazing artists already there. The following may be a good place to start: ultra-fractal, imagersfractaldds, velvet–glove, psion005, Joel Faber, Zueuk, fractek, hoogamaphone, and LaPurr
PS. I couldn’t resist claiming credit for the image at the top of this post. I made it using ultra-fractal.
