Got some knew ones, including colored circles.

Define x,y=inverse_cantor_pairing(n) - this appears related to:

A048147 Array T read by diagonals; T(i,j) = i^2 + j^2.

a(n)=x^2+y^2 mod 2^11 gives circles both in grayscale and
colormap prism_r.
a(n)=x^4+y^4 mod n gives something remotely resembling fractals.

The color circles are:
x^2+y^2 mod 2^11 colormap prism_r maybe A048147 mod 2^11.png

Most of them look better when looked at smaller ratio.
