Little Buddha

I added a new page for the buddhabrot to my site today. It includes an applet that renders it (slowly), along with the source code. While I was playing around I experimented with a different rendering tweak and got the following image after a running a few hours:

    Nice! (Directed at the universe, not you Aaron.) I like the yellowish edges. It looks kinda like you got water droplets on your lens.

    For all the values that do less than infinity iterations (pixels not in the Mandelbrot set), you’re supposed to increment the brightness of each pixel that Z lands on. I think this is what you get if you don’t exclude the points that are in the Mandelbrot set. Or maybe you only included the pixels in the Mandelbrot set, i don’t know, but it looks like what i got when i tried to do Buddhabrot for the first time.
