Ghoul or Zombie? You make the call. - This fractal creation was done with Mandelbulb3D. A Mandelbulb is a 3D analogue of the Mandelbrot set, a type of fractal which is named after the mathematician Benoît Mandelbrot, who studied and popularized it.
More precisely, the Mandelbrot set is the set of values of c in the complex plane for which the orbit of 0 under iteration of the complex quadratic polynomial [z sub(n+1) = z sub(n) squared + c] remains bounded.
Or even more precisely, and perhaps more accurately, the Mandelbrot set is a bunch of mathematical mumbo jumbo that doesn't matter even one tiny little whit to the vast majority of people!
