About this Picture

With the available software it was obvious and somewhat mandatory to me to show the full Mandelbrot set with the maximum resolution and filesize that my artwork printing company is accepting - at least once to have it done. Therefore, it had to be the chosen 25000 x 25000 pixels - resulting in 625 Megapixels.

The surroundings of the Mandelbrot set are not additionally smoothed or blurred out, it’s just the standard escape algorithm but at a very high resolution - except of this there’s nothing special or new with this result. Therefore this is nothing more than a feasibility study.

The area in the complex plane is -2.0 to 1.0 on the real axis and -1.5 and 1.5 on the imaginary axis. This particular colouring clearly provides a sensation of flames and fire, so if it would be released as an artwork the title would probably be “Mandelbrot Set - on Fire”.
