As you can see, my
tickmedal has momentaneously changed into a heart , meaning that I will take care of the Fractal Gallery from this very day!
I'm so excited I can't even. To do my job properly, I will need your help as community.
If you have any idea that you'd like to put into practice (contests, special features...), or any other problem or questions, feel free to send me a note. Every opinion matters.
Moving on...one of the privileges I got with this new position is that I can feature Daily Deviations. It's not something I'm obliged to do, but I will gladly bring super awesome fractals to the attention of the whole dA community. You can send me a note to suggest a piece you feel it's underappreciated and/or deserves to be seen by everybody.
First of all, keep in mind that a Daily Deviation is a feature, not
Mandelbulber v2.0 Alpha Now Available!Hi folks!Mandelbulber v2.0 Alpha Now Available!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Although our group is called 'mandelbulb3d', we also include the 3D fractal programs 'Fragmentarium' and of course 'Mandelbulber'. Well, some exciting news concerning Mandelbulber has recently come to our attention; the program's creator Krzysztof Marczak
:iconKrzysztofMarczak: also known as 'Buddhi', has just released the latest test version of this excellent software. Version 2.0 Alpha now has a single window GUI, as opposed to the multi-part interface of previous versions, and this new version seems to operate in quite a similar manner to Mandelbulb 3D!
Although I personally haven't yet had time to have a good play with the software, I will definitely be spending some serious time with it over the coming weeks, until the 'official' release of the final version of Mandelbulber 2.0.
I actually began my 3D fractal explorations using Mandelbulber v0.80 way back in 2010, and loved its lighting and final render quality. But, subsequent releases demanded

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us!March 17th is traditionally known as St. Patrick's Day, a time to celebrate the Irish, feast, and enjoy all things green. It commemorates Saint Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Among numerous achievements, St. Patrick banished all snakes from Ireland, at least according to legend. Today, there are parades around the world to celebrate the day. And for many, St. Patrick's Day is a reminder that spring is on its way!Celebrate St. Patrick's Day with us!3 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

Macro Photography - Detail not Visible to the EyeMacro Photography - Show the Detail not Visible to the EyeMacro Photography - Detail not Visible to the Eye7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Approaching macro photography for the first time can be full of ugliness especially if your first attempts fail badly. Many beginners discover the Depth of Field (DoF) is very small, images are out of focus because the focus is critical in macro photography with the small DoF, Camera shake and subject movement (due to using longer shutter speeds to allow for small apertures and/or not using a sturdy tripod), increased noise (if you use a higher ISO to compensate for the small apertures needed), or badly composed photos. And this can get frustrating.
(the following was already covered in my first article Welcome to the
World of Macro but here is a reminder)
Macro Photography requires special equipment which can get expensive, but so what we photographers like to spend money on equipment. Without some form of macro equipment you will not be able to

PSD TIPSPSD colorations can be a pain in the ass if you don't use them right. Not all images will fit all colorations. And sometimes you don't get the desired results. So how, the hell, are you supposed to know which PSD works for your image?PSD TIPS1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The good news, there are things you can do to get that pain in the ass out. There are things you can do to get the best results possible, and get the best potential out of the coloration. So I put together this list of tips for all PSD coloration users who want better results.
#1 – Use high quality images. Sounds obvious, but it makes a real difference.
#2 – Add a little depth by duplicating the image twice, set the top one to Multiply, and the middle one to Screen. If needed, add more of these layers, and play with the Opacity and Fill.
#3 – Duplicate the image and set the top one to Soft Light. You could also combine that layer with a Gaussian Blur effect (set to about 2.4 - 2.7) and also a S

Finding your style in photographyLast week I did a poll on what subject you would be most interested to hear my opinion about. The majority wanted to know on "Finding your own style" (http://gilad.deviantart.com/journal/poll/264778/). Here are some pointers on that.Finding your style in photography7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Photography has been here for a very long time. Every category in photography already been tried, most places have been photographed, portraits have been done, special techniques, weather... So what do we still find exiting and unique?
The answer is not in "what's being said", rather in "the way we say it". It's not the subject of the photo, rather the way we take it, show it, make our own definition of it. If you group 20 photographers in one scene, all having the same cameras, you will still get many different photos. On the other hand, you can tell which photo is who's just by looking at a photo - recognize the style. I have to say that finding your style is not a process you are aware to. It happens while doing photogra

We all know someone that selflessly gives of their time and energy to support others on deviantART. I'm not here to debate about selflessness and whether or not there are ever any truly selfless acts. We all get back at least some of what we give.

AutumnOutside the window, gray, bleak and windy. In the kitchen, the smell of apples mixed with the aroma of walnuts. Proudly on the plate is a bunch of grapes. The wicker bowl, tied a green stalk, sparkle juicy tomatoes, and next will be a few green cucumber scented summer. Birch trees outside the window sparkle with colors of deep green and lush yellow, the apples hang red - pink apple, pear branches bend under the weight of ripe fruit.Autumn2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Autumn came quickly, but this year very gently. Temperatures are not too low, it is pleasant even when it is bleak. Rapidly collapsing dark also has that magical something that makes you feel full breast autumn.
