Thanks Jenny - when I rendered this one and it all came together - it surprised me. I couldn't save it quick enough. Digital moments are sometimes fleeting and I didn't want this one to slip away. I'll take the credit for creating it but it's more knowing just how lucky I was and catching it.
I tell you...! Sometime you get lucky & this was Full disclosure: Although no performance enhancing steroids were involved, this the results of something cooked up in the lab. I read this tutorial [link] on 'hybrid' MB3D. The result is that I haven't left my chair for two days and a gig's worth of cool fractals which I can't really claim are the results of fractal skill, (i do color them!). Nevertheless, I don't question the fractal gods and humbly accept their fickle gifts.
