HalTenny's Profile Picture

Welcome visitors! I'm glad you stopped by. Please have a look at my gallery to view some interesting images I've created to try to bring fractals more into a real life form. The majority of these images were created by manipulating variables in mathematical formulas in a friendly user interface within the Mandelbulb 3D fractal program. I also create fractals with Apophysis and Fractal Explorer. Most images can be purchased as prints. And images not offered as prints can be set up for printing if you make a request.

Most of my images can also be licensed for use as CD cover art, book covers or web use.

So click the Gallery button above and have a look around! I appreciate your interest and hope you like what I've done.

I also wanted to say thanks to all my friends and visitors that have congratulated me for my recent work as a concept artist on the Marvel film, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2".

Appalling Deviantart policy

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 20, 2018, 7:14 AM
EDIT: I'm updating this because after almost 4,000 negative comments on the original journal, numerous journal shares and social media comments, Deviantart is going to lift the Geoban on Syria. Mythiril's statement:…  and DA's statement:…

My original journal still remains below.

End edit------------------------------

Deviantart says "We are the movement for the liberation of creative expression." A few days ago, Deviantart blocked all the artists, and indeed the entire country of Syria. Deviantart says "Artists love us because we are an inclusive and supportive community." Deviantart has now blocked all the Iranian artists, and their entire country. They are also (possibly) blocking all the posts about this situation on the DA site by tagging all those posts with a 'mature content' tag so casual visitors, or people that don't have an account here cannot see them. I am ashamed to be here and am considering closing my account, or at the very least, dropping my premium membership so I don't contribute to their revenu. 

The hypocrisy of deviantArtEdit #5
Well, I'll be damned
Staff reply here:…
And we WON! We did it!
and my comment here: stating why this is still up
Edit #4: Iran is geobanned too see here Imagine!
Bravo deviantart, bravo, I applaud you
Please share this, every bit of support counts. I am probably getting my account perma banned after this journal, but I am voicing this discrimination and I want as many people to see it as possible. 
I know people will have various opinions about this. Voice them as you please, but politics shouldn't meddle with art. This isn't fair. This isn't right. You can't deny me service because some politician says so.
Edit: feb 17th: There's a petition now too

What do you use to make your 3d fractals?
HalTenny Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2018
Mandelbulb 3D fractal software.
Leonitus Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2017
Are you willing to take a couple of commissions? I've been making a book for a few years and one of the things I severely lack is the skill in conceptualizing illustrations, especially so as I don't have the means to make digital art. I want my book to have fully realized images or maybe make an art book. If you're busy then I won't bother you anymore, or if you are interested but cost more than I can afford then I understand. 
HalTenny Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2017
I'm not too busy right now. If you want to send me a note with some more information, then we can discuss it further. I pretty much work exclusively in Mandelbulb 3D fractal software and some Photoshop postwork. It's somewhat limiting as far as what I can do in regards to creating very specific images, but maybe we can get something going. Just let me know~
Leonitus Featured By Owner Edited Oct 29, 2017
I've seen your Mendelbulb 3D work and it's what made me feel you'd be the guy able to help me though this might just be my unfamiliarity in your style doing the talking as I'm unaware of the nature and limitations of your style.

Well, there are lots of different images on my wish list as the book's settings are just as numerous across different planets and areas of space, mainly though of large, advanced but ancient looking cities, one being the capital city. It used to be a mountain but was carved from the inside out over thousands of years until all that was left was a massive city of reinforced rocks and metals with buildings and towers of shapes so natural looking that it would be impossible for modern machines to replicate on such a massive scale. The center of the country-sized city hosts a grand spire of rock and machinery as tall as a mountain with a flat peak where a tower of golden light connects it to the center of the structure floating high above.

The city is an island city 603 miles wide in the middle of a beautiful blue ocean, a set of three walls surrounding it in concentric circles with the innermost being the highest and the outermost actually acting as a dam submerged a few dozen meters underwater, holding back an entire ocean save for what can flow over the top, falling into a black, bottomless moat.

A massive floating ring of stone and platinum metals covered with nature in many places sits over the city from dozens of miles high, easily extending just beyond the diameter of the city and are several miles thick. It has numerous massive causeways made of pure light and energy between the ring and where the tower of light mentioned earlier coalesces into a massive ball of light about a tenth of the ring's diameter. 

I understand this would probably be a huge order for you and I won't expect everything to be perfect but if you need to make the image bigger to fit it, the reins are in your hands.
HalTenny Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2017
I'll send you a 'note' in reply to this. You should see it pop up in you message center soon.
