Who Cares About The Candy by NinthTaboo Who Cares About The Candy by NinthTaboo
...when there are so many bats to play with.

Happy Halloween!

--

This Fractal manipulation was built entirely in Ultra Fractal from fractal elements.
No outside images were imported.
585 layers, including the masking.
I used a lot of lettering in this piece from mjd.ucl and not just for the obvious. ("J"s and "I"s make a good ribcage, "O"s work well to build a fence and knots)
The atmospherics are Gnarl.
2700x4050px.
Some textures by *DothackersDaichi
Skull crack based on fractal lightning by ~trystianity

I really enjoy making these elaborate scenes in UF...
but there were days I thought this piece would kill me (and my system), hence the inscription on the tombstone.

Enjoy.

There were so many fantastic pieces, I didn't think I'd garner even a mention...
especially since my piece was a non-traditional fractal manip.
Congratulations go out to you on your win also my friend!

I'm working on mine now. I don't dare make such a complex one this time, since the beetle almost killed me (and my pc). This one is absolutely awesome! :faint:
Did you include partial renders or is it just one file with 585 layers? If so, your pc must be a beast! Mine starts lagging at 200 layers. And I thought quad and 8GB memory was enough...
Do you mind submitting it into AllThingsFractal "Spooky, creepy, cool" challenge folder? Thanks!

Thank you, and for faving too! :w00t:
UF did crash many times and I kept struggling with "vanishing" elements, so my system's not as powerful as I'd like.
I have to shut down the "heavy" programs and non-essentials (like internet and anti-virus :faint:) to work on these big pieces.
My eyes aren't what they used to be, so I tend to build up the individual elements as separate parameter files so that I can
zoom in for better precision, then I drag them into position on the background image for render, all within program.
I look forward to seeing your finished piece and will check out the challenge folder too!
