Fractal Resources feature part 2I have decided to do a monthly fractal resources feature that will be posted here and on #DailyFractalFeatures. I have not decided if I am doing themes or it will be just random. I will take suggestions from the community, actually I request it. Just note me the resources you want to suggest.

You might want to read some comments here for some more little clue and a param.
Have you ever wonder how to create a fractal like this:
Well, those fractals are from two different fractal style, joined togehter into one single apo flame via xaos. a flame become the filler for the plastic bubble style. The first one is juliaN fractal joined with plastic bubble. The second one is mobius gasket inside plastic bubbles. The third one is plastic bubbles inside plastic bubbles. And the last one is julian/ring2 flame inside palstic bubbles.
Worry not. I'm here to tell you the secret The secret is xaos. So, on this journal, i'll write about how to create it. At first, i want to make this explanation as a tutorial. you know, jpeg based tutorial like i ussually do. But after some consideration, i think it's better to just explain it here. The reason is because this trick need s
Plugin pack for Apophysis 7x64 + a little reminderHi guysPlugin pack for Apophysis 7x64 + a little reminder8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Since I obviously don't have anything better to do this fine day, I sat down and made 94 (!) existing plugins for Apophysis readable for the 64-bit-version of Apophysis 7X (commonly known as 7x64) - I'm talking about almost all of the plugins available as source code on SourceForge.net including my own. I just skipped some odd non-standard ones, those which are built-into Apo7x15 and dc_image. I don't know what else is floating around in outer space so if you note me the source code (*.c), I'd convert some more too.
It cost me an imaginary pack of cigarettes and 90% of my remaining sanity. So here is the download link:
Please make sure you read the file README.TXT before you send me messages and comments whining about that it doesn't work for you

Where do I get Apophysis? Is it expensive?
Apophysis is free, open-source software. That means, it does not cost you a cent. In addition, everyone is able to change the software using
the available source code. This is also why there are different
versions of Apophysis:
The "official" or "main" version of Apophysis. You can download it from Apophysis.org
Apophysis 2.08 3D
The original Apophysis 3D hack. You can download it from Sourceforge.net (where you can also get newer beta versions of Apophysis 2.x)

#FractalCircles RelaunchedLooking back, when #FractalCircles was originally launched around two years ago, there was a good amount of community interest in the idea of a group hosting constant collaborations with fractal artists. It ran fairly well for a number of months, but due to a poor group structure and my own inactivity, the group ultimately gave way to stagnation and more or less died.#FractalCircles Relaunched11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just before the new year, me and Rike(=Leichenengel) were discussing various options on what to do with the group. Rather than close it down, we decided to really think on how we could expand the groups horizons and overall use. After days of planning and prototyping, we came up with a new plan for the group, and relaunched at the new year.
So what are these changes and what do they mean? http://fractalcircles.deviantart.com/journal/Group-Relaunched-346125728 tries to cover them comprehensively, but the gist of our changes are as follows:
No more waiting for official circles to be created! Members will now have the op

I run %Fractal-Resources presently to keep a semblance of order to the present fractal resources, cause good luck finding any real fractal resources in dA's actual Fractal Resources gallery. I'm not going in on my consternation on that topic right now. I bet a lot fractalists feel very similar to how I feel about that issue. : |
I kinda got this idea from =rockgem. Who is interested in helping me have either a weekly or bimonthly journal on fractal resource features of peoples' favorite resource? It can be a new one or an old one. It doesn't necessarily have to a feature on just tutorials or a script specifically. Maybe one of each for each journal...?
I need help in making this work.
The TutorialWhen I first started using Apophysis, I did not know anything about the program. I just jumped right in and learned enough about the program to get by. Heck! I didn't even know how to use the render function for the first couple of month using the program. I eventually figured that out and ever since then my fractals have that less of screenshot feel to it.The Tutorial3 months ago in Personal More Like This
The one thing that any new fractalist should look at are the tutorials that are available for their program they are using. While in my case, it was not a 'how-to use the program' tutorial, but rather 'how-to make a specific kind of fractal' tutorial. Like in case of the ones that caught my eye and I have used them several times in helped me with my various fractals.
Tutorials are indeed a wonderful resource for any new fractalist. Since I am at the moment big into Apophysis. What are your favorite tutorials for your p

A lot I have to worry about. The people who will supposedly come to help mom want the house modified/cleaned as I've said and dad wanted me to do a lot of the work they would do first off before they get here. It was rough but I got a lot done. The rush to get mom home right now. *Nicely* timed right as I'm starting my new class unsure of what it will require and how it will go. *sighs*
I'm still writing and it's pretty enjoyable. I've perfected a lot of procrastination especially through Kongregate. I would link some of what I've wasted time on but I'd rather not affect others with the same fate. Stomach is going decently better lately. I can't even remember what I had for dinner tonight. I think something along the lines of the usual. We're going to need to puree for mom for all her meals. Turn her every three hours since people will be watching. Other stuff. Reposition her.

A very important messageHi everyone! How are you all doing? It's been awhile since I updated my journal and there is a particular issue I want to discuss...A very important message2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Art theft. It seems lately, I've noticed, that it's getting worse and worse. Or at least for me anyway... So I wanted to dig deep into the meaning of art theft and explain in detail what it means to us artists trying to make a living, or for any under-appreciated artist.
What is Art Theft?
This is my personal answer to this question. Art theft is the action of a person(s), in which they deliberately copy, reproduce, edit, publish, transmit, upload, etc, in any way, without artist written consent (written consent is far more legit than spoken words, as written can be a binding contract, which can be later used as evidence). Art theft is the action of right-clicking & saving, uploading (without permission). It can also be art theft when deliberately copied, such as painting the exact photograph (if said photograph is NOT a stock photo), and used without per

How does the new-come fractal artist feel when he/she first tries to join deviantART fractal community?

My TreeMy TreeMy Tree1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've had a good bit of time to reflect on this from earlier this evening. Let me lay out the situation.
When I was born, my parents planted a pine tree in the backyard for me. It was a little thing. A pitiful thing. Really, truly, it was planted in the wrong place. In a garden area to the side of the backyard with not much room to grow. But there it was.
It was my tree. When I was young I liked to sit next to it and read. Nothing big enough for shade but it was my tree. I grew up. I watered it every day, even if it was just from an old sand bucket. Whenever I could. For years straight.
There came a time when it got too big for its little place and too top-heavy. It got crushed under a particular snowfall one year. It bent. It nearly broke. It couldn't support itself. But it was still growing out. Sideways, slantways...whatever could get it a bit of light through the heavy cover of the fruitless mulberry that towered above. It's often sickly. It doesn't even have pines for a lon

Apophysis is an open source fractal flame editor and renderer for Microsoft Windows.
Apophysis has many features for creating and editing fractal flames, including an editor which allows one to directly edit the transforms by manipulating triangles, a mutations window, which applies random edits to the triangles, an adjust window, which allows the adjustment of coloring and location of the image, and even a scripting language with direct access to most of the components of the fractal, which allows for effects such as the animations seen in Electric Sheep, which are also fractal flames. Users can export fractal flames to other fractal flame rendering programs, such as FLAM3.Scott Draves invented Fractal Flames and published an open source implementation written in C in t
