Hand-made fractals

Hyungsub Shin is hand-drawing fractals. Check his paintings here. He also has interesting sculptures here and here. Beside tree-like structures, he obtains patterns pretty close to what you can get with escape-time algorithms. Compare his work below with my quick render.

A zoom on the "Celtic" M-set. You can find the algorithm in the file mt.ufm from the public formula collection for Ultra Fractal. I am not completely satisfied, because I remember having seen patterns even closer than this, but I couldn't recover them right now.

I think it shows how efficient algorithms are, compared to human imagination, when it comes to create complex patterns.
