2D and 3D imagery by a fractal fanatic


Sterlingware Kaleidoscopes

(2 images.) I wasn’t sure how to categorize these, as they started out as 2D fractals but after some intense manipulating this was the result…




Sensational Sterlingware

So named because sterlingware fractals can be sensational even if the artist is not 😀 . This was manipped with a filter to brighten it up, it may cause a few areas to look ragged but I hope not too much… We are still trying to sort out resolution issues, I hope my pieces look better on your computers than they do on mine lately?


Some More Kaleidoscope Fun

(3 images.)

These are addictive!…as well as quick and easy to make (nice for those of us whose free time is spotty at best). Paint Shop Pro 7 (yes, I am a die-hard, hanging onto my old stuff so I don’t have to keep spending money!) does a great job of turning almost anything into a kaleidoscope. I must say that it even beats Gimp, or any of those kaleidoscope-makers on the net where you insert your own image.

The first of these has too much white, a bit hard on the eyes, but looks best viewed at full size. It was a JPG at first and I forgot that, so after the manips it is slightly “soft”…

The 2nd and 3rd ones were made originally with Gimp, but I wanted to do more….so I whipped out the Jasc magic, did some manipulating, and now they do look better. I am not keen on all those signatures multiplied in the 2nd one, I promise you I am not narcissistic, LOL. The last looks like it has shells and rocks in the middle…cool!

And from what I understand, kaleidoscopes are NOT fractals…maybe I should change the byline of this blog…hhmm.
