SOLER’S FRACTAL GALLERY
If you know next to nothing about fractals (also called фрактал, frattale, fraktal) then you might want to read an elementary explanation of the what, why, how, and when of fractals. What are fractals?
If you just want to look at some fractal pictures then click on the small images on this page. You are welcome to keep copies of the images. I began making fractals in 1998 and have now made 29,000, mostly using the wonderful programs Tierazon and Sterling. This includes over 3,000 three-dimensional fractals. My best 1,128 fractals are on this site. All of the 2D fractals were made using one of the programs written by the amazing Stephen C. Ferguson. Since the large images are best seen full-screen, please hit F11.

Sterling2 is an excellent and free fractal generating program based on Stephen Ferguson's Sterling. Download it
here. Rooms 20 to 23 showcase fractals made using Sterling2.
Twenty-five gallery pages, some movies and an explanation of three-dimensional fractals. It's amazing that such complex images are generated by simple mathematical formulas.
Here is an annotated selection of my best fractals and here are my best 3D fractals. New

If you are puzzled about how anti-aliasing can improve your fractal images then click here.
So you have made a fractal, but it looks dull or the colours clash. I recommend changing the colours using a graphic program.
If you already use Tierazon you may want to get Tierazon instructions written by me. Also available:
Sterling instructions and Visions of Chaos instructions.
I made four posters using fractals for a gem poster competition held in Brazil in 2011. I didn't win but I think the images are interesting.
I mocked up a fractal necklace using gemstones. The original fractal is here.

That's all very well, but is it art?
