Camil Moujaber

Camil translated the book's ray tracing programs into Visual Basic 2005, made some improvements, and came up with some images of remarkable beauty. These images are't as "organic" as some of the fractal images produced by others but their many internal and external reflections, translucency, and clarity are breathtaking. Follow this link to see more than 40 pictures that Camil generated.

The following list shows some examples. These are all fairly large images, taking a bit under 0.5 MB each.

5 Spheres Textured Earth Pillar and Spheres
Book-textured Cube Cars Caged sphere
Inner light Rita Old Radio
Christmas 2006 Soft Shadows Complex Soft Shadows
Cats Depth of Field Reflected Surface
Shapes with surface shading Shapes with textures Phong Shading Effects (includes explanation)
More shapes with surface shading More shapes with textures Seven solids, bounding boxes
Seven solids, wire mesh Seven solids, simple surface shading Seven solids, smooth surface shading and textures
Pawns and Friends

Mike Rossouw

Mike altered the fractal programs from Visual Basic Graphics Programming to produce images with elegantly subtle colors and amazing complexity.

Steven Abbott

One of Steve's interests is Celtic knots. Steve modified some of the programs in Visual Basic Graphics Programming to display some remarkable Celtic knots in three-dimensions.

Steve's programs can generate images, POVRay output, and VRML 1 output. Download his popular free knot programs including a screen saver and find links to other Celtic knot sites at Steve's Web page.

Jon Hawkes

Jon has taken the output produced by Steve's Celtic knot programs and used them in other graphics packages to produce some spectacular images. You must see these! Visit Jon's Web site to learn about Jon's Web design and multimedia services.

John Stalcup

John used techniques similar to those used to draw fractals in Visual Basic Graphics Programming to create images based on arbitrary equations. Read John's description of his technique.

Edgardo Santiago

Edgardo used image manipulation techniques to modify photographs and fractals to produce some very interesting and attractive results.
