Quiet Silence breeds thought, and frankly, I find it terrifying. It seems like most of us do, since we tend to avoiding it. People don't want to face their thoughts; many of us are haunted by things we'd rather not think about.Quiet2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've become an addict to my anesthetic habits; music, movies, video-games, etc. but that's not all, because since one thing alone can't keep me occupied, I resort to multi-tasking. I pile on the media 'til I'm drowning in white noise, all to avoid the pain of having to deal with my thoughts.
Recently I turned it all off, just for a few minutes. I shut off my cell-phone and logged out of Skype, I closed out of Facebook and took off my headset, then I painted in utter silence. It didn't last long, eventually my thoughts caught up with me, but I got a glimpse of something; I shook loose some of the blockage in my head.
Feature of a Beloved Fractal Artist...:icontwinkleplz:This week we would like to highlight the art of a uniquely talented and beloved fractal artist.....:iconsuicidebysafetypin: This wonderful lady (whose name is Light) has given so much to the fractal community through her devotion through :iconthe-aposhack: as well as being the former Deviant Art Community relations person. She shares her insights on creating fractals with anyone who asks her a question....as well as shares her parameters to teach HOW to create some of the most beautiful fractal arts on DA. Suffering the loss of her Granny this past summer as well as a major move of residence has served to make this a difficult year for her.....and has caused her to take a step back to re-center herself and look forward to a brighter new year. I invite you to to add your own voice of appreciation in the comments section below.:icontwinkleplz:Feature of a Beloved Fractal Artist...3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Creating a Beautiful Fractal ImageThere are so many beautiful fractal images in the art world...Creating a Beautiful Fractal Image2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
...and the ones here at Deviant Art are no exception! The images are as diverse as each person who creates it. I am a lay-person on the subject when it comes to explaining the art itself. Simply put...fractals are based on Mathematical Equations. The how and the why of this explanation still eludes me, but the beauty of the images keep my creating them. For information about the underlying mathematics check this Wikipedia link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractals
This journal will look at the elements that go into creating a beautiful Fractal Image, rather then the complexity of the base mathematics.

Ladies and Gentlemen
After almost 18 months, we're finally proud to announce
The Grand release of Omnimo 6.0.
And likely, the last major update
In the lifecycle of this project.
Life's circumstances have a tendency to change rapidly, and indeed, both of us (me and Xyrfo) had experienced rather significant changes which kept us from activelly working on this project. We started it as we were teenagers, but we've grown up and our new lives have begun. Perhaps Omnimo is a tribute to this transition; a hobbyist project that had become more serious with every release. We put our faith in the hope that our efforts were not in vain, and that the long wait had been worth it.
In our previous releases, we hesitated making the changelog out of fear that we won't cover everything that we've worked on. Incidentally, it's also the case for Omnimo 6.0 - we've improved it so much, I

Another Sad LossAs I am sure most of you have heard, Gary (aka Skyzyk) passed away last night. It came as a great shock to me, to see this news when I logged in today, although I will admit I had noticed he seemed absent recently. It's a very great loss, as Garuy was a wonderful artist, a great friend, and one of the best supporters of the fractal community.Another Sad Loss3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you want to read the particulars , vist :iconFrankief: 's Journal at .
This seems especially sad as it came on the birthday of :iconkram666: who we also lost all too recently. For myself, this is now the third dA friend I have seen pass away, and it doesn't really get any easier. It will be very hard knowing we will never see another wonderful piece of art from these artists, nor have their support and assistance. Gary was always very helpful to me, and to many others, giving tips and advice about fractal software and good comments and criticism of other's works.
I like to think he is out there somewhere, exploring even more wo

Top 8 Writing Tips!Everyone wants to write gooder. Here's my top 7 favorite tips!Top 8 Writing Tips!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Write what you know.
2. When writing dialogue, make it realistic.
3. Descriptive words and lots of adverbs are the spice of writing!
4. Proofreading is for pussies. Your browser's spellcheck is sufficient.
5. Likewise, punctuation has undergone a revolution. Thanks to cell phones any punctuation mark can substitute for pretty much any other punctuation mark. Also, add more for extra emphasis!!>!
5. Characters with backstory are super important! Be sure to include tons of exposition.
6. No matter what you're writing, include CHAPTER 1 in the title. That'll bring 'em back for more.
SUPER HELPFUL EXAMPLE BELOW
Do not steal!

The Year of 2012, internationally has been plagued with many disasters some natural ans some manmade, floods, cyclones, debt stricken economies, unemployment and war and its aftermath that ravages many countries today.
For me, the spirit of Christmas, that many need to draw upon, this year is probably that of the Character Tiny Tim of Dickens The Christmas Carol
A spirit of smiles, fortitude and happiness in the face of a grim and bleak adversity.

Although It has a facade of high profile restaurants for the Posh, Rich and Upperclass residents, just behind this facade is the so called "Village" of Saidpur, which in reality is little more than ugly slum.

Hi, everyone. What an adventure I have been on since September 16 - with doctors and nurses and physical therapists; a hospital stay of less than 72 hours, followed by ten days in a physical rehab center; food that was occasionally tasty, and coffee that should be ashamed to be called coffee; and the endless love, concern and helpfulness of my wife, Beverly.
I'm talking total hip replacement, son :icondamnseriousnodplz:
My right hip was injured in a car crash in 1983. All these years later, after decades of no real trouble, it wore out. Traumatic arthritis had taken away the cushioning in the joint and I was walking with a serious limp.
There was only one thing to do. I now have metal and plastic where before there was bone and worn-out cartilage. The new hip is fully weight-bearing but I have certain restrictions on bending and twisting. I'm using a cane but will be walking without it before long.
I am home and feeling good, and glad to be back here at dA. F

"That's Mister Penrose," he observed without looking at me. He continued working his old Smith Corona madly, which made absolutely zero sense since we'd been filing electronically since, like, 1989.
"Please. Just redo them. Quickly... deadline's in twenty."
"You don't like my horoscopes?" I detected a half-smirk.
"No, I do not. For one thing: Sagittarius. 'Saturn aligns with Mars, which means you will die.' Also, Taurus: 'The stars foretell your unfortunate death today.' Malcolm--"
"Malcolm, we can't all die. Rewrite them now."
"But all of us do. Who's to say tomorrow's not the day?" Tappity-tappy-tap-ding. "What sign are you, dear David?"
"Taurus," I sighed. He just grinned at me over his librarian glasses.
"Well, some of us are destined to die even sooner it seems."
