A new 'Toy' for M3D!!Hi guys!A new 'Toy' for M3D!!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First off; let me wish you all a - slightly belated! - Happy New Year!
Now, to the point; I recently discovered - via Kronpano's :iconkronpano: excellent piece 'Sierp Hilbert Construction Site': http://fav.me/d72bcaa that it's possible to create interactive 360 degree images of M3D - and doubtless also Mandelbulber and Frag - pieces.
The process uses a facility provided by 'fieldofview.com', which is accessible through a Flickr account. I personally have never been a great one for making vids of my M3D creations, so finding this feature was like manna from heaven for me!
Basically, you'll have to have, or open a Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/ to upload your images to. As most of you will be aware, M3D has a 360 degree view option within the Navigator; use this to create your panoramic 'base' piece.
To work best, the 'horizon' should be positioned in the exact centre of your image. This will avoid any unwanted distortion. If you are using a background image

Welcome to the 12th edition of Meet The Fractal Community!
In few words, Meet The Fractal Community is interview with someone of our beloved fractal community. But, from now and for a few editions, we will meet our wizards, the awesome people that do all the coding that allows us to make our pixels
Today let's have a closer look to Xyrus-02
First of all , please introduce yourself to the community.
Hey there guys. What's up? I'm George, 26 from Germany. Appearantly I'm the guy who you are talking to when it comes to Apophysis (or the 7X fork) I'm doing this and that but mostly I'm programming or fractaling. I like breathing, food, a good movie, some gaming, bike tours and playing soccer here and there. That about me
And, of course, tell us about Apo7x.

New Science Fiction NovelYou my have noticed that I haven't been doing much art the past three or four weeks. I had my new novel 90% finished about three months ago, and finally dropped everything else so I could finish it. The new novel is called Vinn Affair: A science fiction adventure. The title is in keeping with the 'Affair' series as it is a continuation of my first novel, Standard Affair: A science fiction adventure. I'm not a hard sci-fi writer. These novels are less technology or apocalyptic driven, but still have interesting characters and situations. (I think!) They are fun, humorous, easy reading and don't get bogged down with superfluous descriptive meanderings. Not to say there isn't some descriptive prose, I just don't get anal about it!New Science Fiction Novel2 years ago in Personal More Like This

When you think Dungeons and Dragons, you may be inclined to picture a dark basement with broody, antisocial teens whispering spells and incantations over leather-bound tomes.
Perhaps D&D owes its cultural notoriety to the religious backlash against it in the 80s, as well as the over-the-top depiction of fantasy gaming and its players

From legions of the undead to fabled dragons
Manmade creations and supernatural forces.
My blade stained with the blood of these beasts.
I've met few and far men and women

Some offered help and support
Whereas others fell to insanity and darkness
Their lives ended, their souls freed by my own sword.
I've struggled to stay alive and defeat the great leaders of Lordran.
Gravelord Nito, lord of the dead and disease.
Seath the Scaleless, a dragon driven to insanity.
The Bed of Chaos, a creation of the Witch of Izalith.
The Four Kings of the now fallen New Londo, who inhabit the abyss.
Their souls placed within the Lordvessel
The door to the Kiln of the First Flame has opened.
A bright white light surrounds the stairs leading into the Kiln.

A few remain in the Kiln, fighting to their last breath to defend their Lord.

#149: Spherical Plants!Hello!#149: Spherical Plants!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My journal is not dead. It's just that I don't feel like writing posts at the moment, I'm sorry!
I'd like to spend a few words on my latest tutorial, the Spherical Plants one. You can find it here:
Hell yeah, people, you're making me happy!
Since I've been making fractals, I posted two tutorials: the Flower Fields and the Spherical Plants (the Tweaking Guide doesn't count).
I love how people are reacting to second one, because the results I had the chance to see till now are really worth to see. It looks like almost nobody stopped at the very last step of the guide, but everyone continued on their way, making their fractal unique but leaving a trace of the tutorial's style inside.
So I want to thank you and show some fractals made with the Spherical Plants technique:

Mandelbulb3D tips for newcomers + a Fave FeatureThere are a lot of sites I go to for regular updates and stuff. For me it gets to the point that I don't even see what's written on the pages anymore. I'm just looking for the DAmn download button. SO I got to thinking about whether or not new comers know how to properly use Formulas and Transforms and most of all, to their advantage. SO I copied/snagged the text on the page where :iconDark-Beam: posts them all the time. http://www.fractalforums.com/mandelbulb-3d/re-custom-formulas-and-transforms-release-t9810/ It's now version 30.9 I check regularly to keep up to date. Example, :iconApofun: was next in the RENDER EVOLUTION PROJECT and couldn't render my parameters because she didn't know there was a new version, AboxMod2, having only the original. Once she installed it, no more problems. So all to say check up from time to time if there aren't any updates. That goes for the program also.Mandelbulb3D tips for newcomers + a Fave Feature3 years ago in Personal More Like This

She had proposed an intriguing way of collaborating or 'reflecting' each other's work; by her choosing one of my fractals and writing a poem for it and I would choose one of her poems and design artwork based up it too. I think she has done wonderfully well don't you?
So I guess its my turn next
Now I have chosen this poem
And created this
And our next task? Well we will try to create a fractal poem (or a poem fractal?) Exciting stuff!!

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

...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.
