Crystal Koch by fractalfiend Crystal Koch by fractalfiend
And this is why I love the gimp :D This awesome image was created thusly.
1.) Duplicating my original piece in a new layer
2.) Desaturating the new layer
3.) Adjusting the contrast higher
4.) Duplicating the desaturation/high contrast layer
5.) Embossing the new layer
6.) Merging the layers with multiplication/screen respectively.

Ultra Fractal 5.04

EDIT: Thank you so much for the DD!

Very cool i like the fingerprint quality to your texturing. And the mini-tut in the description is intriguing.

That comes from the embossing. Since the colors are in a gradient, they end up with lines between the different shades of the color :D The full tutorial is [link]
