Memorial DayToday, we honor America's real heros.Memorial Day2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For love of country, they accepted death.
True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.
They served, and died, so that we might live, FREE.
In their honor, we must always cherish and passionately guard the LIBERTY they died defending..
Just a little reminder of what Memorial day ia ll about.
Thank you for your sacrifice....
Neil ArmstrongApollo 11 was the spaceflight which landed the first humans, Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, on the Moon on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface 6 hours later on July 21 at 02:56 UTC. A third member of the mission, Michael Collins, remained alone in lunar orbit until they returned from the surface about 15 hours later. All three astronauts returned to Earth safely after travelling in space for 8 days. and today on August 25,2012 we lost him so in his honor here are a couple of videos.Neil Armstrong2 years ago in Personal More Like This

No more noise on reciprocal fractalsNo more noise on reciprocal fractals2 years ago in Personal More Like This
With ReciprocalX,Y,Z functions you can get very awesome variations on IFS formulas, the only problem was that the DE was a lot inaccurate! Particularly in the Navi, the fractal never showed up correctly.
More, the only rotations allowed were multiple of 90°, to keep discontinuities horizontal / vertical...
I solved this annoying problem with reciprocalX3, Y3, Z3 - three new functions! Try them and you will be very surprised.
Even rotations are possible without annoying random cut-planes!
A must try imo. Needless to say; reciprocalX3 is completely different from reciprocalX2 ... There is no way to "convert" them too bad. You must study new parameters!
The Secret Club(s) of the EliteImagine that there was a a secret club where the financial elite, the top politicians, the media moguls, the intelligences, the royalties of the world come together in secret meetings at one occasion a year. Then you have the Bilderberg Group. Since 1954 on Hotel Bilderberg in Oosterbeek in Netherlands, they use to have an annual meeting some days in the beginning of June. Despite from the local papers on the places where they meet, they are mostly totally unreported by the mainstream media, so don't sweat if you never heard about them. In the EU parliament, Gerard Batten put a question about them. You can see and listen to him below (about 1 minute),The Secret Club(s) of the Elite2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Tourists visiting Los Angeles described seeing what they thought was either an abnormally tall Groundhog or a short and overweight Llama galloping near the Hollywood sign.

Simply composed of some works of our distinguished fellow members.
In Memory of Mark (kram666)We are sure many of you in the fractal world, here at dA, know of the terrible loss of one of the most amazing fractal artists kram666. Mark was not only a fantastic fractal artist, but also a great friend to many and always full of the nicest things to say. I know I was always dumbfounded why he would ever fave any of my fractals when they never even came close to the work he did, but he was always full of encouragement and never once let a thank you go by without saying, "You're welcome." I know James and I will also miss the wonderful photos of his dear foxes, as well as his gentle free spirit that made dA a nicer place for so many of us. He will truly be missed by us all.In Memory of Mark (kram666)2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Jesse has just released a new Beta version of M3D; v126.96.36.199 test.
As ever, it's available for free download from FractalForums.com at:
What's new in the 188.8.131.52 test version:
A rather spiffy looking new interface and, in Jesse's own words:
"Some beta testing is needed because of compiler upgrading;
the changes belong to the internal light model, more options
for the diffuse map, panorama camera mode, stereo options.
Some issues should be solved, many new ones to find!
It is just the executable, you can take all directories with files
from the previous version - v184.108.40.206 - if you need them, or adjust
the ini-dirs to the existing ones.
Note: the new stereo options must be used from the same starting
parameters to work properly, I will change this for easier handling.
For now you have to undo the parameters or reload default ones".
Please bear in mind that this is just the executable, so if you are

Last Honor for a recently passed away deviantHello there fello friends, watchers and deviants...Last Honor for a recently passed away deviant2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
One week ago was a sad day for the family of :iconkram666: and the deviant community.
He passed away at the age of only 48. Him who was so dedicated to digital art will never leave anyone of us a comment or reply to those given to him. He will never again fill our inboxes with his colorful fractals or cute photos of the foxes.
But even if his body has passed away - he will stay alive within us and within the art in his gallery.
I'm sure that he is somewhere where he can still appreciate our support of his art, so this is my hommage to a wonderful artist AND his family.
With heartfelt condolences,

All of the numerous changes belong to the fractal flames generator T.I.N.A. , this release is some kind of "consolidation release". Complete list of changes:
- resolution and quality profiles for the main editor and the interactive renderer
- quality- and resolution-profile-editor
- quality- and resolution-related settings removed from the Preferences-window
- randomize color keyframe position in the random gradient generator to create more interesting gradients
- use gradients of random size in the random flame generators
- "From Editor"/"To Editor" buttons to quick exchanging from fractals between the editor and the interactive renderer
- rudimentary statistics display in the interactive renderer
- automatically clear the screen in the interactive renderer
- the interactive renderer also now respects the quality setting (from the render profile) and does not "overrender" as quickly as before
- take into account the real density while tonemapping an imag

Interesting Mandelbulb 3D Image NewsInteresting email ~Interesting Mandelbulb 3D Image News1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I received an interesting email this morning. Someone contacted me through my Fine Art America site requesting that I make a print available. I forgot to ask how she found the image, as I hadn't even posted it there yet. Anyway, it turns out this person is the daughter of Karl Menger, who's most famous popular contribution to mathematics (according to WikipediA), was the Menger sponge, a three-dimensional version of Sierpinski's carpet. The Menger3 formula (and other forms of it) certainly seem to be some of the most widely used and popular formulas for many that use Mandelbulb 3D.
The image she was interested in was one I recently posted here at DA, Wreck Of The Menger. Eve pointed me to a very interesting video that explains the Menger sponge quite well,
