well can not miss out on the two very favorite people in Ultra Fractal world, who inspired me & 'push-me' to research the fractal world of formulas !!
I'm speaking about :iconJimpan1973: & :iconfractek: of course
Lets have a closer look at those two fractal craft-masters (at least to me they are) stick around and I tell you some stories, as well as have some goodies from their galleries to show of and there is a feast for the eyes in both cases
Jimmie is the coolest fractal-dad you can ever wanna meet and a headbanging one as well, with his heavy metal group on a side of being caring & sensitive while teaching kids with special needs !! Honestly I never knew people like that still existed, till I started talking to him and found out he is funny, normal & really down right approachable in person (if th

Inspiration Station: *fractekThe dividing line between fractal art and abstract art is itself a fractal, and may appropriately be visualised in Kirsty's brilliant painterly Landscape. Indeed, it's in this area that I find my particular favourites: geometrics such as movave wave and Feeling the Groove; primitive forms, sometimes with a hint of the calligraphic like primative and Script; and, of course, more of those fizzing horizontal divisions at different levels of 'zoom' - Mediterranean dreams, Frac stract andInspiration Station: *fractek2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Un-Occupy the InternetAre you tired of stupid governments trying to institute laws which regulate your internet use?Un-Occupy the Internet2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Are you sick of feeling like your voice is not being heard?
Have you tried some form of protest (in whatever country you might live), only to be beaten, tear gassed, or otherwise told to "shut up!"
Are you, like so many of us world-wide, disgusted with the unequal distribution of wealth? Sick of being part of the 99%?
Well, I have the cure...
Last month, we all saw just what kind of power we actually have... we shut down SOPA/PIPA
Millions of people world-wide decided we didn't want this stupid law, and we said so, in a very clear, very loud voice... and we can do the same to protest everything else we feel is wrong with the world.
This being leap year, we have one extra day this month, February 29, and I propose that we all Un-Occupy the Internet on that day.
What do I mean by this? My proposal is simple, and requires absolutely no effort on your part, in fact, it requires eve

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.

Tip for unknown artists
First, this is something I find many just don't realise... Did you know that you're way more likely to meet new friends and getting your work noticed if you interact with unknown artists, instead of only watching already popular ones? Unknown artists will appreciate any feedback you leave them a lot more (be it a critique, a fave etc.), and often will keep talking to you and return the favour, while to many popular artists, you may be just another drop in the sea.
Remember, the amounts of exposure you get doesn't just depend on the quality of your work you'll have to get some people to look in the first pla

WIP IIBefore reading... this is only a segment of the story. It's actually one of the last scenes in the story, or at least... how I'm planning it to be.WIP II2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm not really explaining too much in the actual writing, because it would all be redundant in context. Evelyn wouldn't explain who Exie is, since we've known that from the beginning of the story that Exie is her sword.
And she won't really explain the setting to herself either, because she's been standing there for the past hour or so.
So I'll just sum it up here real quick for you.
- They are in the haunted city and it's all destroyed and stuff, due to the previous fight(s) with demons and stuff. It's all rubble and stuff like that. There are parts of buildings sticking up and the ground is uneven because of all the stuff laying around. It almost looks like a natural disaster hit it, I guess?
Anyhoo, they're in the center of the town, which is a bit more... "even" then the rest of it, but still not really easy to run on, or wa

A sensual introduction.Before I get to what I want to write (yes, strangely enough, I wanted to write what I have written), I would like to say that I have nothing against Jews, ants or any living or non living thing on this planet, or anywhere. I don't encourage any hateful thoughts or actions, to anything or anyone, ever. I just like to pretend that I hate certain people or things at certain times. Everything I write should be seen as a bunch of bullshit, since that's what it is, it's only made to look as amazing as it does.A sensual introduction.9 months ago in Personal More Like This

Join a SOPA and PIPA debate What are SOPA and PIPA?Join a SOPA and PIPA debate2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The United States Congress is proposing two laws that address the problem of wide-scale unlicensed distribution on the Internet of motion pictures, songs, trademarked goods, and patented pharmaceuticals.
One of the proposals is called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and would direct search engines in the United States to block Internet sites outside the United States that are primarily engaged in distributing unlicensed content.Another proposal called PIPA (Protect IP Act) would block websites located in the United States as well.The Obama administration is putting a stop to these proposals. It wants the Internet companies and the content companies to get together and come up with more functional and less destructive solutions.
