Scroll down for the parameters + tips and instructions
I finally managed to purchase some of Janet Parke's course ebooks.
This is one of my homework images.[link][link]
Well worth every penny. I seriously recommend these ebooks. I'm not even fully through the first course yet, and I've already improved this much. Can't wait to continue my education.
No need to comment, feel free to fav and run. I'm busy these days with college and Summer (who's seven months old now, crawls, and loves bananas
EDIT: For those of you who are interested in Janet's courses (information linked above), you should first know that they are Windows executables that are unique to a specific computer; basically, when you first open your ebooks, they ask for a code that only fits your computer, which you can only obtain from Janet herself. I ran into problems, for example, when I had to switch operating systems (but of course, Janet was excellent and resolved them for me quickly and with no cost). The point is, they can't be transferred, so you can't buy them off of me.
I'm sorry. I also don't know if she has any accommodations available for Mac users or not.
Final (I hope) edit: If you can run UF, you can run the ebooks.
Hope that answers any questions!
Final (no really, this time it is I swear) final edit: Since this image is so popular, I decided to post the parameters to it for people to look at.
The only things I require is that you make something different from what I made
(I don't want to see a million re-renders of Chocorose floating around. =/) and that you post a link to the things you made with it so I can !
And obviously don't take the parameters and sell prints of my piece, but I figure that one's obvious . . .
TIPS: Notice the underlying texture layers and the layer settings/gradients I used on them. Most of them are overlays that have the opacity turned down.
I also prefer to use separate color layers in most cases as opposed to coloring my base layers. This is my own preference, you should experiment with coloring all the different layers to get a different product. By no means is this the only good way!
Finally, the second layer is very important to bringing out the lower spiral because without it, the spiral becomes too dark and the texture doesn't stand out. Notice the layer underneath and its gradient as well as the layer above and its gradient. They both work in tandem to produce the base.
Without further ado, here are the parameters:
If you have any questions about how the parameters work or just want me to ramble (warning: I ramble) about them, feel free to ask questions.Make something unique and awesome with them!
And if you want to know more about creating images in Ultra Fractal, buy the courses and go through them, you won't be disappointed!
---Oh god I broke it! Edit:
is a sly devil (she was all like, "Check out Halloween's DD! I think you'll enjoy it!"
and a nice person.
I'm chuffed to be one of the holiday DDs, really--it's always been kind of a "if possible I'd like to do this" kind of thing.
