A new 'Toy' for M3D!!Hi guys!A new 'Toy' for M3D!!2 years 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

45 Life Lessons by Regina BrettLife isn't fair, but it's still good.When in doubt, just take the next small step.Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.Pay off your credit cards every month.You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.Save for retirement, starting with your first paycheck.When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.It's OK to let your children see you cry.Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about.If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living, or get busy dying.You can get through anything if you stay put in today.A writer writes. If you want to be a writer, write.It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

Mandelbulb 3D at DeviantArt and Thanks!Like so many I have become fascinated with Mandelbulb 3D. I use other fractal programs but put most of my time into exploring Mandelbulb 3D. I have to thank a lot of people who have supported my work and given a helping hand with Mandelbulb 3D. However a special thanks goes to Hal Tenny who with his awesome art and tutorials has gotten a lot of artist into Mandelbulb 3D. Here is a small sampling of some of my favorite Mandelbulbs found on DeviantArt.Mandelbulb 3D at DeviantArt and Thanks!2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Jesse has just released a new Beta version of M3D; v22.214.171.124 test.
As ever, it's available for free download from FractalForums.com at:
What's new in the 126.96.36.199 test version:
A rather spiffy looking new interface and, in Jesse's own words:
"Some beta testing is needed because of compiler upgrading;
the changes belong to the internal light model, more options
for the diffuse map, panorama camera mode, stereo options.
Some issues should be solved, many new ones to find!
It is just the executable, you can take all directories with files
from the previous version - v188.8.131.52 - if you need them, or adjust
the ini-dirs to the existing ones.
Note: the new stereo options must be used from the same starting
parameters to work properly, I will change this for easier handling.
For now you have to undo the parameters or reload default ones".
Please bear in mind that this is just the executable, so if you are

If you could bring one deceased legendary artist back to the current time, who would it be and why them?
It’s hard to pick only one character to reunite all the creative minds I’d like to see in current time. First person that comes to my mind is Salvador Dalí – simply ‘cos he was different and original, and the effect of his art will be present for many years in the future.
Who or what inspired you to take on the art form that you focus in?

Every deviation (in my humble opinion) deserves a great title - that is the idea behind this contest....
Participation is simple - note me a deviation title (not one that you have used before) - something you just made up - something clever, funny, thought provoking, dark, existential, inspirational....whatever....include as many as you wish in a note to me...and note me as many times as you wish, if you think of more later!!
IMPORTANT: please be notified that if one of your titles is picked as one of the winners, you are giving me permission to use it as the title for one of my fractal manipulation submissions (you will get credit as a collaborator on the submission, and you can post the piece as well!! - no worries there!!)
When the contest submission date rolls around, a few well-chosen friends and I will take a couple of weeks to pick the top 3 submissions

Yep, you read right folks - the new version of M3D now has the facility to render
volumetric light! This will add a whole new level of potential creativity to what is
already a superb piece of fractal software!
As always, get your free download from FractalForums at: http://www.fractalforums.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=47
In Jesse's own words:
"Not sure if this release is too early, but someone might use it for the FractalForums
contest so here it is....and I need some rest!
Please look at the readme for some explanations for the new volumetric function.
What is new in version 1.8.9:
- Volumetric light option.
- Some issues fixed.
- Changing between relative and absolute light angle for global lights preserves the
- Formula update, some sine approximation adds with more options."
I suspect that we'll be seeing a lot of amazing lighting effects over the next few weeks!

How to gain more exposure on deviantART!So you think you're a pretty good artist, and have some decent pieces, but nobody to show. Or perhaps you're a learning artist who wishes to attract more attention to your pieces to get advice and criticism. Sound like you? I know it sounds like me!How to gain more exposure on deviantART!7 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Many artists on deviantART wish that they could have more exposure in the art world, but I've noticed that not many of them know how to go about doing so. There are actually many options, and we shall examine them thoroughly, to hopefully get you more exposure!
First off, just so that we're all on the same page, please don't expect exposure if you have nothing in your gallery. You need to be serious and dedicated about this. Also, ALWAYS make sure that the work is your own, and not stolen from someone else. It will surely get back to the artist from which you took it from, and you will be severely penalized.
Now that we've cleared that up, we'll begin!
1. The most common way to get exposure, comments and favourites is to
Character Feature: Shyla ShepardThe seemingly indomitable Shyla Shepard has lived a harsh and tragic past. After losing her family at sixteen to a bloody Batarian pirate attack on an Alliance colony, the young fighter joined the Alliance military only to lose her entire squad in a deadly thresher maw attack. In the years since, these early scars have forged a new identity out of the shattered ruins of the child whose family died on Mindoir. Known for her “tough but fair” approach, Shepard’s fight against the geth incursion broke new grounds for humanity when she became the first human Spectre on the galactic Council’s elite forces. But recent rumors have put in question Shepard’s loyalty to the Alliance forces. Our investigator setup an exclusive interview to delve into the truth behind the legend.Character Feature: Shyla Shepard4 years ago in Personal More Like This

In Memory of Mark (kram666)We are sure many of you in the fractal world, here at dA, know of the terrible loss of one of the most amazing fractal artists kram666. Mark was not only a fantastic fractal artist, but also a great friend to many and always full of the nicest things to say. I know I was always dumbfounded why he would ever fave any of my fractals when they never even came close to the work he did, but he was always full of encouragement and never once let a thank you go by without saying, "You're welcome." I know James and I will also miss the wonderful photos of his dear foxes, as well as his gentle free spirit that made dA a nicer place for so many of us.
