Escherian Nightmare by eriban
Escherian Nightmare
My first fractal flame. A tesselated impossible triangle. Very Escher like.

Credits
This fractal is heavily based on the Impossible fractal created by tatasz which I really liked. I had one suggestion though how it could be further improved. Before I knew it, tatasz tricked me into taking this task upon myself by claiming it could not be done. This required me refreshing my knowledge on fractals and learning to use Apophysis, both very fun. The resulting image resembles the original by tatasz closely. The main difference is that the layout of the triangles is now such that edges of the same color do not touch anywhere. Despite the similarities of the resulting fractals, the sources are quite different. I recreated the fractal from scratch and used a different approach. For example, this fractal is created using 25 transforms (9 basic shapes, and 16 subsequent transformations) whereas the original used 32 transforms (27 basic shapes and 5 subsequent transformations). Anyway, thanks to tatasz for inspiring me to create fractal flames. This certainly won't be my last!

Cube with Magic Ribbons by eriban
Cube with Magic Ribbons
This is a 3D reproduction of M.C. Escher's print "Cube with magic ribbons". This print is significant for being Escher's first drawing featuring an impossible object [wikipedia]. It's quite amazing what Escher managed to do without having the opportunity to use 3D modeling software.

Technical Details

This image has been rendered using the POVRay raytracer. No post-processing has taken place on the image to make the illusion work; this is the 3D scene as it is rendered by the raytracer.

Credits
The original idea is of course by Escher, who had this ribbon featured in his print "Cube with magic ribbons".

Thanks. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by copy, but I had a look at your gallery, and if you mean reproducing them as pencil drawings that's absolutely no problem.

I'm happy to hear that :-)

Also, once you've drawn anything inspired by them, please let me know. I would definitely be interested to see it.
