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!

As the title suggests, this news article series aim to promote wonderful aspects of the deviantART community, from showcasing beautiful works of art, to informing you of great groups, and to interviewing inspirational deviants. I feel so happy being part of such a wonderful community and I hope to make it better, even if it's only a little bit, by making these articles. My goal is to bring to light everything that impassions me and, hopefully, inspire you!
Showcasing Gorgeous Artwork
Here I will showcase art that has simply left me speechless from all genres, from digital/traditional, artisan, emoticons, fractals, etc.

:iconthesmallwonder:A reflection by thesmallwonder
While warm summer is probably my favorite season, I have a soft spot for fall. It's a colorful season full of reds, oranges, and other fiery colors. It means cuddling with blankets, wearing cute scarves, and sipping warm cups of tea.
But mostly I love fall because it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood fairy tales called, "The Leaf in the Shape of a Key" by Joan Aiken. It's about boy who rides his bike beneath trees in fall, catching all shapes and colors of leaves. The last leaf is in the shape of a key, and it opens a door in the base of a tree.
I rode my bike under a lot of trees as a kid hoping to recreate the magic, but unfortunately, it's a little less whimsical when you live in a neighborhood of pine trees.
Still, fall is a time of nostalgia for me and the photograph

So, if you're a watcher/follower of mine, you should have noticed I have notably cut my fractal uploads down to one every couple weeks. The reason? University. I won't paste here my super long rant about how freaking incompetent and mad some of my teachers are, but long story short, I have two more exams I must pass with a high grade by September and I only have two more occasions to do so, since I will lose the scholarship I won this winter if I don't. I need a holiday people. Please send me your good vibes so that I can pass by the end of July instead of dragging those creepy tests down to almost the start of the upcoming academic year!
Okay student ramble over. On to more important things now.

Structured IFS Fractals - Basic ElementsFractal Art WeekStructured IFS Fractals - Basic Elements8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This article is about structred IFS fractals - basically, stuff made with Apophysis, Chaotica, and other similar software. Those aren't formal names of the things - just a little system that makes things easier for me.
A structured fractal is basically composed of main structure (framework), fillers and effects.
This decomposition, of course, is not universal and not even unique (one may see a transform as filler, while another as framework, for example).
This is the transforms or a group of transforms that create the main shapes of your fractal. Removing or replacing one of those transforms with something else will change drastically the looks of the work. Many frameworks have emtpy areas to be filled with fillers .
While some frameworks people use are quite hard to figure out (those are few though, since there are not many people able to find their own original crazy structures), other are common, explained in many tutorials, fe

Welcome to another edition of The F Word. On this edition, i have an interview with kr0mat1k. Please enjoy my interview with him.
can you please introduce yourself?
My name is Geoffroy, I'm 41, from France, studied Arts at school, had many different jobs, and I'm actually a stage sound ingeneer.
What is the first thing that makes you attracted to Fractal Art?
That's a big question !
Since I can remember, I've always been a science-fiction addict, comics, movies, litterature, TV series.....everything. I was fascinated by those psychedelic environments and colors. Then we got an Amstrad cpc464 (yes the one with the tape recorder ), and I found in a coding book some examples on how to create a computer generated image.
It was basically geometric patterns and some kind of rose-window pictures.
I found some similarity between these images and wh
Celebrating Diversity #1Welcome to this new series of Art Features! Even tho most of you are aware of the many many galleries and categories here on dA, I think most of us move in a sort of "comfort zone" between Galleries, Channels or Groups that provide us with a constant flow of new art. And sometimes we forget all the other great artforms, styles and media that are out of our "comfort zone". And today I want to step out of that warm and cuddly place and feature some awesome works from places on dA I don't usually visit!Celebrating Diversity #13 years ago in Art Features More Like This

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!
Some deviants even says : "It is a elliptic-splits mania on DA"
This tutorial is a step by step o

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.

Fractal Art is , like name says, Art made from Fractals Too simple? Well You can create a Fractal and call it Art and you can create several Fractals and stick them together and call it Art in either way Fractal Art i

No offense my friends if you see one of your images here. I find them all beautifully laid out and colored, and done by talented artists, but I just wanted to speak my mind once again about tweaking and param sharing killing originality. Please try to unchain your creativity by making new stuff!

PE Feedback: ...But I don't know what to say?Critiques: What to say when you don't know what to sayPE Feedback: ...But I don't know what to say?3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
All of us have heard about feedback events during our time on deviantArt. Many of us have participated in them, while others have declined to do so for various reasons. Some of these reasons include fear of receiving critique on one's own work, fear of being attacked for critiquing someone's work, fear of not knowing what to say, and feeling inadequate to critique a deviation from someone who is perhaps more skilled than we are--especially if the deviation is created using a medium to which we are unaccustomed.
We especially want to focus on this last reason.
Here is a conversation that we had recently in a dA chat room (names have been changed):
Us: We are planning a cross-medium, dA-wide critique event for Project Educate!! Will you participate?
DeviantX: Hmm. I don't know.
Us: Why not?

As many of you will remember from last year’s festivities, August 13th is a very special day for lefties everywhere! Left Handers’ Day is a day where we can all get together freely and talk about our scissor preferences, smudged writing and how many times we’ve been heard: “Hey! Are you left handed?”.
Of course, we can do that any day. But on the 13th of August we have an awesome excuse. And once again, we’re providing you with the perfect excuse to put on that thinking cap and grab your art supplies to create something awesome for the LHA 2012 contest!
There are two sides to every coin: good and evil, day and night, law and chaos, left and right. This year’s theme is all about opposites, however you want to interpret them! Your piece can include any and all opposites, limited to only your imagination. It doesn’t have to relate to left-handedness, but just contrasting themes and o
