    Ducks fractals

    Copyright: Samuel Monnier 2011
    original work found here...

    Dan Wills reports (via  on the new kind of fractals, Ducks. They are exceptionally full of content and contain both Julia and IFS fractals. Check these posts:

    Interestingly, Perceptron produces a similar fractal to the one depicted above, but by using very simple transformations, the Julia part f(z) = z, and the linear "reflection transformation".

    One of the pages mentions a gallery that turned Ducks into a fortune!

    Interestingly, the Duck fractals (also, Ducky), combine the Julia and IFS patterns in one. They are space-filling or densely packed. In the example found here 
    near zero, you can zoom in endlessly without increasing the number of iterations. The level of details does not seem to drop. They are quite similar to the fractals made with Perceptron, which simulates a video feedback setup.

    There are more similar to the feedback fractals, but iterated as opposed to feedback rendering looks ... much better.

    Are you sure that you want to give up the empire of video feedback fractals that you built so carefully and surrender it to the idiots who call themselves "Ducks"?
