The process goes like this:
real, im = -1, -1So what you end up with is a greyscale image. The brighter it is, the longer it took to render.
x, y = 0, 0
while x < IMG_SIZE
y = 0
while y < IMG_SIZE
times[x][y] = processing time
normalize times // min will be 0, max will be 255
output to bmp
The result is...well, amazing. Like really. See for yourself:
Does that look familiar to anyone?
I used a fairly small image size here (it was even smaller before). Problem is that rendering time is O(n2), so it takes 4 times as long when I double the size - originally I wanted to have an 800x800 image - turns out that'd take like a week for the thing to process! I might try tweaking the code to be multithreaded, that would probably half the time on my machine.
