    Do you know how to draw fractals with any graphics API? What I'm getting at is, do you need help with the OpenGL portion or the drawing of the fractal portion? Or perhaps both?

    So here is what I suggest. I don't think you will find an OpenGL tutorial on drawing fractals. It would be easier if you found an introduction to OpenGL tutorial to see the structure of an OpenGL project and then incorporated in the fractal part. To learn about fractals try here:

    http://www.angelfire.com/art2/fractals/learning.htm

    Do what you wish but I think this method will help you achieve your goal.
