Duality - Making of

The DUALITY wallpaper was inspired by  an amazing fractal freeware called ContextFree - . After some tweaking I produced the fractal shown here (image size reduced).

The best thing in Context Free is that it can render one fractal many times with random settings and, as  a result, slightly different results. So  I put two fractals together...

... and again, and again, and finally I had some 15+ fractals overlaying each other, filling almost all space around them (which was my purpose).

Next, I prepared the background - a simply gradient, a bit distorted in the middle with brush tool.

I added the texture to the background, using the same technique that I use on many wallpapers. (see )

...Then I added my set of fractals and put it  to the left edge of wallpaper....

... and then made a copy and put it  to the right.

...One final touch was using black brush to fill the gaps. That's all!

Well, as long as i'm just a graphic designer and i've never pretended to know how to program anything I've been a little much slow in using Context Free. I tried to read make magazine, but i realized at any point as was out of focus. I know it would be easy, but... could you tell a little more about CFDG on your own words??? tnx a lot
