What happened last year?
Pretty lot! There have been fractal circles with tweaking fractals around, both in the group :#fractalcircles: and ponging parameters in :#aposhack: , Light SuicideBySafetyPin introduced us for the Inspiration station, the fractal flash mob, a collective feature of different artists. heavenriver has her UF challenge going on http://heavenriver.deviantart.com/journal/Ultra-Fractal-monthly-Challenges-Redux-Vol-12-277027446 and f--l--A--r--k has his Apo challenge http://fav.me/d4l1fc6 and it would be great if we could keep up supporting them!

Meet the Fractal community #1Hey guyzMeet the Fractal community #12 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome to the first edition of Meet the Fractal community !
In few words, Meet the Fractal Community will be a bi-monthly interview with an artist of our beloved fractal community.
This week let's have a closer look to coby01 !
First of all coby01, please introduce yourself to the community.
My name is Coby
I've been married for 42 years, we have 1 daughter and a darling grandson.
We live in the Netherlands, near Rotterdam.
My hobbies are reading , gardening and my PC.
How did you discover deviantART ?
I have discovered DA by playing with Google like a lot's of deviant here
And fractals, what about fractals ? How did you discover them and start to create them ?
I started with Ultra Fractal about 5 years ago.
I was a bit on Google, and discovered fractals, and it fascinated me enormously, and I started looking for fractal websites.
Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals # 15Did you miss the series? I have missed it too, but I thought it would be a good idea to have a break from it until I found some inspiration again. You guys never stop to amaze me, I get new and fresh works, journals and tutorials in my inbox every day, and now I thought I should share it with you. First some news from DA's fractal corner.Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals # 153 years ago in Personal More Like This
raysheaf is planning a tutorial on how to make realistic shapes using concentric circles in UF. Be sure to add him to your watch list if you want this tutorial in your inbox! http://fav.me/d4t8eug
Light has challenged Chiara with this one: and I think it's a great idea! It's not like the usual parameter pongs, but a co-operation between two artists with different styles, where the result shows off each artist's style. Just imagine Leichenengel's colourful psychedelic style with :devjimpan73: metallic spirals and shiny gems. Or LeonieZurakowsky's colourful plastic mandelbulb shapes with kr0mat1k's quirky metallic bul

Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals 14Here is the series again. Seems like the title issue is almost fixed. And gosh, there are a lot of goodies to show off! I wasn't sure if I should submit it via my ordinary journal, or sta.sh writer. But it could be good to have a clear difference between my ordinary silly journals and ehm.. more serious features.

FFF series issue 13You wonder what's with the weird title? Yep, I thought I should submit with sta.sh instead of my journal, and of course, it was the famous 30 character limit again. Nevermind, I've heard that it will change soon. I'm back again with the series. And from now on, the series will come out semimonthly instead of each week. It gives me more time to dig up new goodies and collect resources and news. And you'll not be tired of the squirrel and her instant chattering. At least I hope so The fractal artists here never disappoint, it's a constant stream of lovely beauties into the fractal gallery.

The Fractal Universe:icontechgnotic:The Fractal Universe3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Is a photograph only a record, something created by a machine? Can photography ever truly be considered art? That question seems quaint and laughable these days, but if you do a little research you will find that once upon a time it was a raging debate. Thankfully a consensus has been reached that the agency of the photographer – his or her eye and critical mind – choosing the subject and manipulating the machine (the camera that is the art instrument) is what establishes photographs as potential works of art when created by an artist-photographer. Pretty basic common sense, huh? So why then is there now a debate as to whether FRACTAL ART is truly art – or just something produced by poking patterns into a computer? Isn't it just really random e-graffiti, a fibonacci button mash?
Here we go again… Hopefully it won’t take nearly a century again before fractal art is recog

How are you today ?
Today, I was browsing my art RSS feed, when I see this wonderfull article on Fubiz about snowflakes. (available in English by clicking on "Français" on the top right corner of the article )
A Russian photograph called Andrew Osokin succeed to give us impressive macroscopic snapshots of snowflakes !
Wait !! What ??? you gonna make us read something about photography ! But ... But... You're the Fractal Community Volunteer! not the photography one...
Yes I will ! And why??
Because I'm not only a fractal artist, I'm an art lover... and how do I improve my skill ?
By taking inspiration from other mediums, by looking for some new artworks everyday !
And this is quite interesting, believe me...you'll learn a lot by doing this !

how many fractal artists are there here at DA and how many worldwide?
is someone using (or have interest in) fractals in professional life (except making tools for us) or some art-unrelated form?
how does awareness of art being fractal change (raise) perception and appreciation?
SPECIAL SELECTION: beautiful 3d fractal scenes

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.
What is Fractal Art?
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
