Polynomiography is a method of visualization of complex polynomial root finding process. One of the applications of polynomiography is generation of aesthetic patterns. In this paper, we present two new algorithms for polynomiograph rendering that allow to obtain new diverse patterns. The algorithms are based on the ideas used to render the well known Mandelbrot and Julia sets. The results obtained with the proposed algorithms can enrich the functionality of the existing polynomiography software.
