Does anybody understand colouring in Mandelbulb3D ? 

16 deviants said No - I just move the sliders and tick boxes for hours until it looks good.
10 deviants said Yes - And it's really very simple to understand.
10 deviants said No - What's a Mangelworzel, again?
7 deviants said Yes - And it's really very simple to understand. You do have a degree, right?
6 deviants said No - I move the sliders and tick boxes for about 7 minutes and then give up and decide it looks ok in black and white.

Self Fulfilling Prophecy ...

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 21, 2014, 5:53 AM

Just before my Birthday last year, I made this little boast ... and called it Red Hot.

Red Hot 1 by phoenixkeyblack

As we all know pride comes before a fall and, sure enough, when I used the monster CPU to render a Mandelbulb thingy my operating temperatures went through the roof :ohnoes:

I few weeks ago :heart: carolineevablack :iconcarolineevablack: :heart: bought me an awesome cooler ... The Coolermaster TPC 800 ... :dance:

I know I could get more cooling from a liquid cooler but I have a perspex case (and the back half of my PC is actually upside down because my desk is the wrong way round to show off the insides when built properly), and there is no room for the radiator ... The joys of custom builds ;)

Anyway, I will now be able to render again ... Just hope I can remember how to use Mandelbulb3D, I had a similar break from Apophysis a few years back and I completely forgot how to use it ... :slow:

It has just been my birthday again (the years are beginning to pass at an alarming rate), and I would like to thank everyone for the lovely birthday messages ... :w00t:

Caroline and her family have clubbed together and bought me a superquick SSD ... :w00t: WooHoo!!!! :w00t:

A Final Whinge

Below is a list of the countries where people remembered my birthday ...

United Kingdom

And the list of my children who remembered ...

Russia and Ukraine are on the verge of war and rembered my birthday but my sons didn't (17, 16, and 14 in case you thought I was being harsh to toddlers).

So I may be forgetting theirs and I may even forget Jesus's too ... :(
