I am looking for a good tutorial on how to make classic fern fractals. I am wanting to replicate something like jarrich.deviantart.com/art/Mys… or gibson125.deviantart.com/art/A… or gibson125.deviantart.com/art/T… with an ultimate goal of trying to add texture to the "stem" and "branches" like does with her Julian Rings tutorial (like tn1-5.pv.deviantart.com/fs26/1…). I'd like to basically try to mix the two. I can't seem to find any tutorials on how to make these ferns though. Anyone have any ideas?
Ferns are such a great fractal form and easy to use as an example. I was thinking about getting a great fractal like that and add the classic fractal formula for the Mandelbrot set (Z=Z^2+C) to it and have it printed on a T-shirt or hat or something. I think it would peak people's curiosity and open up the topic of fractals. If nothing else, it would make for some cool wallpaper. LOL
