Digital art has a unique problem. Download parameter file “greon02.ink” For instance, do your images look the same on other people’s monitors as they do on yours?

Download parameter file “asteroid08.ink” I failed grade 11 Math, but I did alright in the other stuff. It’s funny because fractal formulas seem to be more about the other stuff than Math.

Download parameter file “hook02.ink” Although Inkblot Kaos allows you to render your own formulas, you can’t make your own filters and can only choose from the built-in ones.
