Your work is reminiscent of the Godhead Equation . The masculine and feminine. soul energy of the universe. BRILLIANT! Absolutely beautiful , yet sci-fi enough to be cool ad well . Have a very Merry Christmas, and a blessed 2013!

Hello! How are you?? I have written a journal about manuals of artistic anatomy and have left a few links with the most interesting images of every part of the human body... Maybe you are interested in seeing it. Greetings from Valencia!!

I have zero idea of how people work with fractals or even what they are. I would love for you to give me a brief explanation. please.......

Sorry. I didn't see this comment until just now!
Fractals are self similar geometries and one way of thinking about them is by imagining numbers on a graph. Numbers are plotted on the graph and some values go outside the limits of the graph and some stay on the page as it were. Different colours are given to the numbers that 'escape' at similar rates and patterns can be seen as a result. One of the most fundamental fractals the 'Mandelbrot Set' is mathematically defined as z = z squared + C.

Most fractal programs start off with a default/preset fractal which can serve as a starting point and you can change numbers in the formula for the fractal to change how it looks. Most programs also allow the changing of the position, zoom, viewing angles and colours. Advanced fractalling(?) involves creating your own formulas or mixing one or more formulas together (hybrids) to find new and different types.

The images above are 3d fractals (you might be more used to seeing 2d fractals). 3d fractals have been around about as long as 2d fractals but in recent years a group of mathematicians and fractal enthusiasts at fractalforums have succeeded in nutting out the maths and then making software to make a wider variety of 3d fractals which is why there has been a surge in the popularity of fractal imagery of late. Hope that helps!

that is interesting to see en explationation about fractals. Maybe you should make a short explanation in a deviation, that way people can fave that info :D

Are all these the iterations of just one simple equation, or is each fractal defined by an individual mathematical formula?

I mean, it's rather obvious that one equation can yield different results, and thus there are 'families' of fractals definded by different equations, but what are they? If the Mandelbrot set is defined by y=z squared + 2, then what math forumals are used in M3D?
