About: Hal Tenny is well known in the 3D fractal art community as an outstanding artist and a creator of some of the most popular Mandelbulb 3D tutorials. He is a masterful MB3D technician with an amazing eye for color and composition.
Having been active in the arts all his life, Hal moved into digitally based art with the rise of computer imaging software. He began working with fractal images in 2009, using the fractal flame software Apophysis. Since then, he’s moved on to creating predominantly with Mandelbulb 3D.
Hal’s art is evocative of science fiction imagery—otherworldly environments, futuristic cities, wildly-complex alien technology… He utilizes the full potential of the MB3D environment with lighting, fog, and depth-of-field effects to create scenes of uncanny realism. While some of his art has illustrative and abstract qualities, many of his pieces feel almost photographic.
“…For the most part I work around the perimeter and beyond what is easily recognized as fractal art.”
Hal is also an author. He has a number of science fiction novels and short stories available at Amazon.com. [search: Hal Tenny]
