Samhain Splits

Samhain Splits – M Bourne Halloween 2018/December 2018

A good collection of splits and some ornate patterns to use as computer wallpaper, for tweaking, for actual wallpaper (go on I dare you)

Too tired to write out a full description for each of these, you’ll see from the Transforms and variations, what’s going on anyway.…

Psychedelic Starfish II

Feathery

Another entry for the flame game, Psychedelic Starfish II is a fractal flame based on using crop and linear splits. Adding a Julia and twisting things around on the z plane.

Psychedelic Starfish

Psychedelic Starfish

For a new flame game on Facebook, using splits and crop (never used this before), created the below image. I think crop is a good feature, even though am not entirely certain what it does other than crop a flame so that you can then process the cropped section.…

bTransform my splits

bTransformsplits

Well, decided to go ahead and add a bTransform to an old elliptic splits flame, just to see what could be altered. Quite a lot it seems, didn’t have to do much tweaking at all to get the image below. Try it, adjust the bTransform settings, but whole numbers at a time for the best results.…
