Luxus and Luxrender Beginner's Guide - DAZ StudioLuxus and Luxrender Beginner's Guide - DAZ Studio1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Reality 2 might be the king of LuxRender plugins for DAZ Studio, and with Reality 3 on the horizon, that is not likely to change, but for those of us looking for something a little more flexible in the way it interfaces with LuxRender, the recently released Luxus is very a very attractive option. A number of LuxRender's features are not supported by Reality, but Luxus opens the options all the way out, and even has fields for entering newly released code to incorporate the latest LuxRender features.
The problem here is that configuring LuxRender's render engine and materials are complex tasks, and can be daunting to DS users that are used to the relative safety of the neat and simple interfac

Now that I have figured out a tiny bit of how my new position as a CV works, I will start awarding Daily Deviations to the general photography category. So please, send me your suggestions... I need some inspiration. If you find something that really stands out and you think it deserves a DD, send me a note with the subject titled "DD suggestion" along with the thumbnail of the deviation. I will take a look at it and maybe feature it. Don't be shy about sending your own photos either, if you think they are DD-worthy.
There are certain categories in the "photography" gallery that have a specific Community Volunteer in charge. If the photo you want to suggest falls in their categories, please send a note to them instead. Click here to see who is responsible for each gallery.

Inspiration Station is a joined community effort - started up by our fractal gallery volunteer Light SuicideBySafetyPin
It features artists, who made an impact on the Fractal community, either via inspiration of artworks or selfless attitude of helping
others & coding programs we all enjoy and use. I would like to introduce the featured artists by using quotes from published journals.

The Fractal Universe:icontechgnotic:The Fractal Universe3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Is a photograph only a record, something created by a machine? Can photography ever truly be considered art? That question seems quaint and laughable these days, but if you do a little research you will find that once upon a time it was a raging debate. Thankfully a consensus has been reached that the agency of the photographer – his or her eye and critical mind – choosing the subject and manipulating the machine (the camera that is the art instrument) is what establishes photographs as potential works of art when created by an artist-photographer. Pretty basic common sense, huh? So why then is there now a debate as to whether FRACTAL ART is truly art – or just something produced by poking patterns into a computer? Isn't it just really random e-graffiti, a fibonacci button mash?
Here we go again… Hopefully it won’t take nearly a century again before fractal art is recog
PE: Profile Designing with CSS[deviantART related]PE: Profile Designing with CSS2 weeks ago in Art Features More Like This
Want to learn how to make your page not just nice or pretty, but spectacular, unique, and all-around awesome? This article covers the newest stage in the evolution of profile design: Profile CSS.
Please keep in mind that this article is only for Premium Members who are not beginners to profile design. If this is your first time trying your hand at customizing your profile page, you'll probably find the following articles more helpful than this one.
Why use CSS?
Although setting up and learning to code CSS for your profile can be a hassle, there are a great deal of benefits to using CSS instead of only HTML:
Fonts: CSS allows for almost complete control over font styles, colors, and sizes (only limitation is that fonts must be Web Safe fonts or Google Fonts). HTML on DA is limited to only a certain n

From Resources to Fractal Art #1Hi deviants !From Resources to Fractal Art #12 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome to my new series : "From Resources to Fractal Art".
What is really interesting in the fractal community, is the way deviants interact between each others to share their knowledge with tutorial or Parameters Pong (Sharing Parameters to tweak the main fractals).
Therefore, in this article I'm going to select a resource randomly and show you how to start from a tutorial to achieve a wonderful fractal.
This week, let's take a look at lindelokse tutorial : Apophysis 3D Blooms Tutorial
This tutorial is an evolution of her first tutorial about 2D blooms.
Since Chiara explained us how to create bloom a lot of deviants tweaked and had fun with this technique!
Here's a lil' sample of what you can find in this category !
Daily Deviations UpdateHappy Monday MorningDaily Deviations Update2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I started this morning by signing something "Moonbam13" so either this typo means I need more coffee, or this week is going to be BAMTASTIC!
I'm rooting for the latter
I wanted to post a quick update on changes to Daily Deviations. It is important to note that these changes have not been hard-coded so my team is manually following these new guidelines. This means that errors can and likely will occur until the coding is complete, your patience and understanding is appreciated
The following guideline changes are in effect:
The 3-month rule is now the 6-month rule, meaning that it must be at least 6-months since the last time an artist received a daily deviation. (This was an overwhelmingly popular suggestion from the community and I agree, it's a good one!)
Daily deviation selectors may only select one daily deviation per day maximum. This has been put in place to focus on Quality vs Quantity.

Our story begins in 1950 with Benjamin Francis Laposky, a sign painter and army veteran who was also an artist and mathematician. In addition to getting a kick out of creating Magic Square Puzzles, Ben created what is arguably the first set of computer generated images, "electrical compositions" using a cathode ray oscilloscope:

More about Blooms !!!As you have noticed I got some Blooms going recently and they become very very popular So it happens I'm in a spring mood and feel like being showered with flowers - time to shed the heavy skin clothing into light and fragrant. Got amazing comments on the blooms as well - from dreamy, in my dreams full of magic to I wish they grew in my garden, can you make some prints and even could you make the Blooms into 3d-sculpturesMore about Blooms !!!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
All ideas and suggestions are very welcome - on short time notice I did added some prints & also a brand new calendar (with Blooms only). You can always add it to your wish list (so you don't forget the blooms when Christmas comes) or you can get it even right now, still 10 solid months left, and afterwards you can get the singular month pages to use as prints (I do that - good price for 12 artworks).

What is Fractal ArtWe will have a whole week of crazy something. Fractals are pretty and not dangerous at all, altough may cause severe addiction.What is Fractal Art6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
During the Fractal Art week, we will tell about different fractal generating softwares, teach some basic techniques, share some awesome renders, and, of course, chat about fractals, programming, minecraft and love life of certain fractal artists on our chat #Aposhack.
What is Fractal Art?
The very first question here is: what are fractals? TaraRoys made a perfect answer to this question (it is a little flash animation, click to watch):
The world fractal, from Latin fractus (broken, uneven), means : "A geometric pattern that is repeated at ever smaller scales to produce irregular shapes and surfaces that cannot be represented by classical geometry". It was first introduced in 1975 by Benoit Mandelbrot.
Discovered - lindelokseWikipedia states that Fractal Art is a form of algorithmic art created by calculating fractal objects and representing the calculation results as still images, animations, and media.Discovered - lindelokse2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So in short, Fractal Art is Mathematical art.. what?
Here's what I do know about Fractal, I know that I love it. I don't proclaim to understand the way it comes about anymore than I proclaim to understand the intricacies of painting or technical drawing but I find the end result absolutely amazing and lindelokse is one of the artists in this medium I admire.
Not only is her art wonderfully detailed, colourful and beautiful - she's completely unassuming and such an amazing member of the community. She's even posted a tutorial on how to create her signature flower. I invite you to take a wander through the fractalicious creations in her gallery:

This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after ` -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out above the many other
