Contest: Best of Both Worlds: Back to Fractal Class!
Fractals and Resources are two galleries that get crap about "not being art," so we thought it would be cool to team up for a contest to prove those people wrong!
In this contest, you will be provided with three tutorials from the Fractal Resources Gallery. (See rules below.) Use one or more of these tutorials for a chance to win! It's the Best of Both Worlds (resources and fractal art!) to offer an amazing Fractal class!

What is a Fractal?
A Fractal is a digital artwork that is based on parametres and formulas that are based on mathematics(Geometry). The name Fractal comes from the latin words fractus (fractured, refracted) or frangere (to break into pieces).
The one who coined the term of Fractal was Benoît Mandelbrot. He was a Mathematician born on 20th of November 1924 in Warsaw and died on 14th of October 2010 in Cambridge/US. He contributed a lot to the thematic of financial mathematics, theoretical physics and chaos science. But the highest popularity he gained with being the father of Fractals.

We Are Anonymous.
From recent news from many who plead for our help, you have caught our eye.
your heinous crimes of kidnapping children, forcing them to kill their own families, force innocent girls to become your sex-slaves, intoxicating these innocent children with drugs and starving them to death, and even distorting the beliefs and religions that are in Africa, has forced us to take action.
You have destroyed countless of lives and as the world mourns you throw your head back and laugh.
Although we do not agree with Invisible Children due to their schemes, we do know that at least what they say about you is true.
We are doing this for the children you torture and send out to kill others against their will, for your own sadistic fun and hunger for conquest over Africa's countries.
Now because of this your military organization will be destroyed.
As we speak countless people around the globe are demanding the United Nations to take action against you, as they righ
Pure JoyThis year (2011) for the Holidays I followed Bentley on a great adventure. He'd seen me stressing out all year and he finally put his paw down. I canceled the plans I had originally made. And he made me follow my heart. Even though I had my doubts.. It turns out, Bentley is wise.Pure Joy3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Off we were to Mammoth Mountain, on some last minute plans. The type where you know things are being rushed and so they won't go well. But Bentley had faith. So first he enlisted my Mom, jeanpat because he prefers when she feeds him. She gives him too much in his bowl!
And Viktoria o-KOUKLA-o plays with him in the mornings if I'm still asleep, so she's pretty key to having fun.
And chris keeps the evening games of Settlers of Catan going until the wee hours, so no one interrupts him (Bentley) when he's sleeping!
Beautiful Couples In Life And In Art - Part FourIn a time when nothing is more certain than change, the attachment of two people to one another has become a rare thing, but just this increases its beauty.Beautiful Couples In Life And In Art - Part Four2 years ago in Personal More Like This
All of us want to love and to be loved, but this is not easy at all!:icontruesmiles:
Love doesn't means only "I Love You", love means commitment and respect, a strong shoulder who can support your head at any moment, a warm heart who can receive your joys, an energetic hand which can relieve all pain and depression, a mysterious smile during a dance, which always conjures the First Dance, but above all, love is the only feeling that shines over time when our hair is white and our wrinkles talk about memories.
This is love and life, this is what all of us dream to have and to share this is what we have to respect and cherish.
I had the chance to meet some beautiful couples in our dA community and I have the pleasure to dedicate a series of journals to them.
I want to do this because I want to let them know how

Blocking and Harassment on deviantARTOn January 12's Site Update, some people suggested a better blocking feature on deviantART. I've looked through our blocking feature and I'd like to hear people's feedback.Blocking and Harassment on deviantART3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
How, if at all, do you think deviantART's blocking feature could be improved?
Note the following:
When you are blocking someone, they can still see your profile. If blocked members could no longer see your profile, they could simply logout or open an Incognito window. You cannot comment on a blocked member's journal, deviations, or profile.You cannot reply to comments of a member who has blocked you.
What other features or changes could deviantART implement to decrease the amount of harassment?
Many people suggested a "Report Deviant" button, which is definitely a great idea.Let's hear more!

Time for random feature! I'm going to feature : The first 100 people to make a comment and fav this journal. It's going to be one feature per spot and the art will be chosen by me from the spot winner's gallery.
Let the game begin!
Remember, you have to both fav and comment in order to be featured. I'm saying this because 2-3 people did only one or the other. Be sure to do both.
*Damn, I'm having trouble keeping up Sorry if I missed some of you guys but everything is fixed now. Oh and just to be clear : I won't feature art that is breaking deviantART rules or artists that are straight up art thieves
Due to size restrictions I had to split my feature in two journals :

This Article goes out to all Ultra Fractal Users/Artists on dA, so it would be great, if you could +fav this article if the message appeals to you - also it would be awesome, if you could spread the word yourself
The past days I discovered my special interest in tweaking other people's Parameters to learn and to just create my own vision from what is already given. There are a lot of groups that offer Tweaking Circles/Round Robins like :iconfractalcircles: or :iconroundrobin-central: just to name two of them.
My project is some kind of a fusion between Circles/Round Robin's and Challenges.
I thought of the following:
Within a certain amount of time (let's say for example 1 month) there will be a Tasty Tweaks "Round". The whole thing will be running as follows.
1. I write a SignUp Journal that will always be named "Tasty Tweaks #Number" or something like that.

:iconestunt:Some thoughts from Matt (mattdanna)
Being raised Roman Catholic, Christmas is a big ordeal for my family. On Christmas Eve, we would always celebrate Christmas with my Mom's side of the family and we would participate in this weird yankee swap gift exchange. It's such an evil game because only one person really ends up being happy with the gift they receive, and everyone else wants to strangle that person. Unfortunately, I always ended up with a gag gift. On Christmas Day, we would go to church and then have my Dad's side of the family over for a gluttonous late lunch/early dinner.
I participated in these annual traditions for 21 years. Last Christmas was the first year I did not travel home for the holidays. I had just moved out to Los Angeles a couple mon

Welcome to my new serie : "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 Fiery-Fire & SaTaNiA tutorial : Splits Elliptic Fractals
We were hanging in the :#aposhack:,ponging some params and then a wonderful idea came to us ! What about explaining this simple technique to the deviants.
When we released this tutorial, we honestly didn't think it was going to be such a loved technique!
