Don't ask my why the 500px blurs out slightly ahead of the 1000px series. Probably just luck of the draw (e.g. where the last significant digit lands).

All those colourful pictures of the Mandelbrot Set? They're based on what pixels tend toward infinity (are greater than 2) at each level of iteration.

This is the base iteration:

return x*x + c

So, like a sculptor, higher resolutions narrow the field.

And then, as much as I'd like to push 10,000px images to the web, as of 2015, modern browsers just aren't up to the job yet. Give 'em a year or two.

Code be code.

And this be the code.
