Creating a Beautiful Fractal ImageThere are so many beautiful fractal images in the art world...Creating a Beautiful Fractal Image2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
...and the ones here at Deviant Art are no exception! The images are as diverse as each person who creates it. I am a lay-person on the subject when it comes to explaining the art itself. Simply put...fractals are based on Mathematical Equations. The how and the why of this explanation still eludes me, but the beauty of the images keep my creating them. For information about the underlying mathematics check this Wikipedia link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractals
This journal will look at the elements that go into creating a beautiful Fractal Image, rather then the complexity of the base mathematics.

Today, I am HeartbrokenThis past week our nation witnessed one of the most horrific violations in history. A beast that I refuse to name, planned and then killed 12 people in a theatre in Colorado.

What I WILL address is the idea of our Constitutional "right to bear arms". The misconstrued perception of this "right", saddens and confuses me. The archaic belief that having a gun in our houses will enable us to "defend ourselves" is not only statistically improbable, it is metaphorically AND literally unsettling to those who live with us. A loaded gun in a house says,"I don't trust people", "I am afraid someone will break in and hurt us", and also "I am willing to shoot to kill another human being".
If you have a gun in your house and it is NOT loaded, the statistical probability of you being able to get to it, load it, and confront a home invader AND for the outcome of that confrontation to be positive in ANY way, is insignificantly small.

"Please read the textfile in the archive for a short documentation.
If this version does not work with Win2000, i can only say sorry, dunno why!
USE ONLY SAME PROGRAM VERSIONS TO CONTINUE ANIMATIONS OR BIG RENDERINGS DUE TO COLOR OR LIGHTING CHANGES! ALSO FORMULA UPDATES CAN CHANGE RENDERINGS!
What is new in version 1.8:
- New compiler, new look.
- Transparency option in postprocessing, amount of it in object colors.
- Stereo function is more accurate.
- New diffuse map options for object coloring.
- Saving also the internal image buffer along with M3I.
- Addition option for lighting like intensity for all lights and background
image, usage of downscaled background image for ambient color.

Mandelbulb 3D ~ Mastering 3D NaviBet that got your attention ~Mandelbulb 3D ~ Mastering 3D Navi4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well I'm sorry to suck you in by that devious title! I haven't mastered anything, but I did finally put together all the useful advice given in comments from a recent journal (http://haltenny.deviantart.com/journal/42966411/) I wrote on navigating with the 3D Navi tool. The funny thing is I brought up my solution to navigating at Fractal Forums back in May and FractKali responded with a much better solution than mine, and I either didn't read it thoroughly or simply didn't understand it. So I want to make it clear that I am simply passing along advice from the comments I've received here and at Fractal Forums. I just want to organize and better explain the procedure in case any have missed some of the comments.
I almost always offer this disclaimer. I readily claim that I am far from an expert with MB3D. If beaten over the head with information enough times, it eventually

Free!Well this is definitely shameless self promotion, but at no cost to you. Several times I've mentioned my Kindle books here because I do my own cover art. Anyway, most of my books will be free for a few days this week starting Sunday, June 16. If you read any of them, leave an honest review, it helps the independent authors/publishers greatly!

Starting Monday and all through next week I'm making most of my Kindle books free for a limited time. Amazon has a promotional tool that allows authors to do this (schedule free book promotions) in order to gain a larger reader base and promote interest in our work.

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.

Big News that only leads to more questions
Today, the US Department of Justice has taken down the New Zealand company MegaUploads on charges of distributing copyrighted materials.
One has to ask, since when does the US DoJ have jurisdiction in NZ?
But even more importantly, if they can do this, what the HELL so we need SOPA/PIPA for?
In other news, this is unsubstantiated at present, but I saw some posts on G+ stating that a group known as "Hactivists" have taken their own action:
"Hacktivists with the collective Anonymous are waging an attack on the website for the White House after successfully breaking the sites for the Department of Justice, Universal Music Group, RIAA and Motion Picture Association of America.

Jesse has just released an update to Mandelbulb 3D: version 1.7.7.
It's available - free as always! - from: http://www.fractalforums.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=33 at FractalForums.com.
Details of the update:
- Several bug and glitch removals.
- Replaced the average DE combinate method with an inverting and max comb.
- The animation rendering generates "dummy" output files, so many computers
can render on the same output directory with the "not overwrite existing
files" option checked.
- Big renders output tiles can be "single numbered" used by stitching programs.
- Maps can be numbered up to 32000 instead of 255.
- Rightclick options on formula tab headers to move and copy formulas.
- Formula update.
