Fractals/Iterations in the complex plane/slope

It is an algorithm for converting 2D image to 3D


"three points are iterated for each pixel and then are used to create a three-dimensional surface. A vector perpendicular to that surface is used as the z variable and is passed to the coloring routine. When a Slope formula is used with the Lighting coloring, the result resembles a fractal surface being illuminated from above and to the side." Kerry Mitchell[1]
