My entry:
Ultra Fractal monthly Challenges Redux - Vol. 11What are these UF challenges?
How do challenges work and how can I participate?
Can I help promoting the challenges in some way?
What if I have an idea for a future challenge?

You can find all this information and more in the Ultra Fractal challenges FAQ, which is also part of our very first UF challenge, the one for February 2011.
If you already know the rules, then you're good to go - read on for this month's challenge!

Previous editions:

Challenge #01 - February 2011 - Theme challenge; title: "Flower Power"
Challenge #02 - March 2011 - Formula challenge; title: "Sine-Mod_III"
Challenge #03 - April 2011 - Other challenge; title: "High H


I got first place!

"An extremely evocative and atmospheric artwork,
which joins classic canvas elements with dim brownish
tones and a dark setting, simulating a lonely
building standing on top of a mountain at dusk."

Thank you heavenriver! [link]


I added a texture to this and it really looked like a water color. When I rendered it the texture went away. I even re-rendered it with anti=aliasing off and still no texture.

Any ideas on this?????

*Update*
I replaced the texture and it rendered fine this time. I am much happier with this version.

You really did manage to capture a watercolour feel, even without it! If anything I think this might be better than with the texture. :)

Thank you, I'm glad you like it. It does have a texture. The first texture I tried wouldn't render so I had to change it and then it worked. :)

Very nice abstract watercolor! What formula did you use for the texture?
Reply
:iconbeautifulchaos1:
beautifulchaos1 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011
Thanks Kim, The formula is "Something Else Julia" from Tma2. The outside is SFBM 11.
I think I'm just going to try a different texture, it looks naked without it.

I'm not familiar with that formula...it may need special render numbers kind of like Rose Range Lite. I had a similar issue with the Cellular Automata formula, it completely went bye-bye when rendered.

Here's a work-around: Don't render the texture layer, drag and drop the texture layer into a separate fractal window, click File and select Export Image. Save at your desired size. Render the rest of your image as normal and then bring both images into a graphics editor and merge the layers there. Works like a charm. :)

Thanks Kim, that is a great idea! I am going to do it just as a learning tool. I did replace the texture and re-uploaded and I'm happy with it. I'm still a beginner and I love learning new things, thanks for sharing your knowledge. BTW, I love your work!

Hmmmm, perhaps you had the opacity of the texture layer set too low?
Reply
:iconbeautifulchaos1:
beautifulchaos1 Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011
Thanks for the reply Jim. I thought of that and increased the opacity to pretty dramatic looking in UF, re-rendered and still not a speck of texture. I will keep at it till I figure it out. :)
