APOPHYSISWe are going to have special features (from time to time)about the different software programs that we all use to make our fractal image art. This first one centers around the very popular program APOPHYSIS.APOPHYSIS1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Apophysis is an open source fractal flame editor and renderer for Microsoft Windows.
Apophysis has many features for creating and editing fractal flames, including an editor which allows one to directly edit the transforms by manipulating triangles, a mutations window, which applies random edits to the triangles, an adjust window, which allows the adjustment of coloring and location of the image, and even a scripting language with direct access to most of the components of the fractal, which allows for effects such as the animations seen in Electric Sheep, which are also fractal flames. Users can export fractal flames to other fractal flame rendering programs, such as FLAM3.Scott Draves invented Fractal Flames and published an open source implementation written in C in t

All of the numerous changes belong to the fractal flames generator T.I.N.A. , this release is some kind of "consolidation release". Complete list of changes:
- resolution and quality profiles for the main editor and the interactive renderer
- quality- and resolution-profile-editor
- quality- and resolution-related settings removed from the Preferences-window
- randomize color keyframe position in the random gradient generator to create more interesting gradients
- use gradients of random size in the random flame generators
- "From Editor"/"To Editor" buttons to quick exchanging from fractals between the editor and the interactive renderer
- rudimentary statistics display in the interactive renderer
- automatically clear the screen in the interactive renderer
- the interactive renderer also now respects the quality setting (from the render profile) and does not "overrender" as quickly as before
- take into account the real density while tonemapping an imag

Are you an Artist? Has anyone ever asked you this?My newest flatmate, Genie, asked me that just before I went on holiday for the Queen's Birthday long weekend. I said yes, how can you tell? She said, "You dress like an Artist". She's the second person to do excatly the same thing; the first was by a nice old lady who was a painter. She asked me if I would like to join the painting group in her town and I asked how could she tell and he also said I dressed like one. (No I wasn't wearing the same things. These incidents happened 1 and a half year apart.Are you an Artist? Has anyone ever asked you this?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, I put to you, has the same thing ever happened to you? Have you ever been identified as an artist or other job, simply by having someone look at what you look like.
It was strange because I don't even have a sense of 'style' as it where. I just wear whatever appeals to me as cool. What ever my style is, it appears to identify me as an artist.
Or people just being sterotypical. They just look at someone unique and say "She/he dresses so different! They must be an Artist!"
Happy Birthday December Babies and ChangesHappy Birthday December Babies + ChangesHappy Birthday December Babies and Changes7 months ago in Personal More Like This
This is going to be the last of the Birthday features that I have done over the past 3 years.
Our lives change and I presently have very little time to be here at deviantART anymore. I am having to give up a lot of responsibility and things that I used to do here on a regular basis. My main group :#only-wallpapers: , groups, notes, and comments are overwhelming at times, so I have chosen to cut way back so that I can get back into my art and have more time to see some of my personal friends here that I am sure they must feel like I have totally neglected them. Sorry guys and gals! Hopefully some of these changes will get me back in the normal mode again. Then I can be here more often with less to do. I miss a lot of you people!
Now on with the final Birthday Feature - Happy Birthday Everyone

Fake DeviantsA teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.Fake Deviants2 years ago in Personal More Like This
