Fractals are shapes that are self-similar and are usually quite detailed. Well-known fractal sets include the Mandelbrot set, Julia sets, and Phoenix sets. Tree-like fractal drawings are also common.

Fractals are shapes that are self-similar and are usually quite detailed.

Fractal sets such as the Mandelbrot set, Julia sets, and Phoenix sets use iterative functions to determine set membership, for example, if the iterative recursive function never explodes into a large value, then that point is a member of the set.

Fractal trees - drawings that resemble trees in nature can be drawn in high detail with recursive algorithms.
