Why would you want to Meet the Masters? As with any skill you want to learn, you certainly want to learn from the best. The Masters presented here are among the best in the world. Many people choose to download Mandelbulb 3D and begin creating fractal images. Most of them catch the fractal bug and enjoy creating and sharing art with friends and family but never achieve that Master level.
Over the years I have watched thousands of fractal artists post images to Deviant Art, Facebook, and other sites. While many of them are very creative, in contrast they have yet become the elite artist I would call Masters!
What are the qualifications to be considered a Mandelbulb Master?
Great question. So, here are the guidelines I use to make this determination:
- First of all the artist must display the ability to create images that are technically proficient within the confines of the software.
- Similarly, they must use of features within the program such as depth of field, volume lighting, positional lighting as well as lightmaps.
- Image perspective and presentation are also important.
- Likewise, Originality, Style, and Wow factor are a essential.
- Above all, they must consistently produce one of a kind, “knock my socks off” types of images. Ones that allow me to enter into the world presented and feel amazed by the skill of the artist.
I have personally tweaked images from each of these Masters and during the process have gained knowledge and great respect for them. It’s my hope that if you are a lover of fractal art that you will visit the links provided for each of these Masters and enjoy the amazing art created by them. Each of them provide parameters on some level that you can load, examine, learn from and tweak.
Most of the Masters featured below you may have already heard of. However, if you do not follow them closely, every day, you will be amazed by the works of these wonderful artist.
These wonderful artist are at the top of their game in regards to creating the best fractal art out there! Each of them were humble and gracious when I approached them for permission to be added to this series!
Each of them have dedicated many hours and created countless numbers of fractals to perfect their craft!
I would to express my thanks to each of them for being so creative and bringing joy to the world with their fantastic creations! I am also keenly aware that they allowed me to step into their private space, look around and then share that with you. I am truly grateful for that!
