I suspected this was possible. Sure enough, if you use color texture from an image in material editor and fractal 'None' you can turn your image into a fractal. It appears to be able to be used with other fractals in hybrid or boolean mode but I haven't tested yet.

????

I completely don't understand the idea. You placed into the scene primitive circle and applied texture to it. Where is this fractal?

Hi buddhi.
The idea is that the natural World often behaves like a fractal. From solar systems down to molecules. It probably cannot be proven the natural World is not a fractal.
It's obvious most fractal artists incorporate elements of the natural World in their fractals and delight in making fractals look like objects people are familiar with.
Another idea is 'are fractals an art form or a way of thinking'?

This was really simple.
"fractals are textures at some distances and the 'materials' that make fractals are based on 'textures'.
