1950 - Laposky's Oscilon
Our story begins in 1950 with Benjamin Francis Laposky, a sign painter and army veteran who was also an artist and mathematician. In addition to getting a kick out of creating Magic Square Puzzles, Ben created what is arguably the first set of computer generated images, "electrical compositions" using a cathode ray oscilloscope:

I have just recently received the opportunity to become the "Science Fiction and Space Art" Community Volunteer Gallery Moderator here on deviantART.
I am looking for "Science Fiction and Space Art" deviations to feature as Daily Deviations, and you can help.
If you know of any submissions that you think should gain more exposure and be Featured as a Daily Deviation,
and they are "Science Fiction and/or Space Art"related, send me a DD Suggestion via note.
I have info on my front page regarding how to suggest a DD if you have any questions.
I would prefer suggestions for artists that have less exposure and little to no previous DD's,
but I am not against awarding a Daily Deviation to worthy art from a more well known and decorated artist.
I simply want to try to focus on putting a spotlight on lesser known artists that have amazing art to share, so that their work ma

Questioned by the Hong Kong PoliceSo where was I? Oh yes I was gonna talk about my experiences with the Hong Kong police, so here goes. OK this is the problem, whenever I visit Hong Kong I always have the fear of being questioned by the police, well not exactly fear because I've got nothing to hide, but whenever I am alone walking on the street and a policeman on patrol sees me, they would ALWAYS 100% stop and ask for my ID. For those ain't familiar with how things work in Hong Kong is that if they see a teenager (Especially male) on the street not in their school uniform during school time or with dyed hair or pretty much just 'gangster' or suspicious looking, they have the right to stop you in the middle of nowhere and question you. Now I match every bit of suspicion possible, what they are trying to check is if there's any sort of crime around the area so they can narrow down the suspects, or to check whether you are legal to be in Hong Kong, or whether you've got drugs on you. Anyway when I was in Hong Kong a monthQuestioned by the Hong Kong Police3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Atropa Belladonna Contest! Submissions Closed!Hey there The-Average-Alex here.Atropa Belladonna Contest! Submissions Closed!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So after the recent closure of the logo contest we, after looking at the poll we posted, decided that we needed to host a new contest.
So here is the Atropa Belladonna contest!
Atropa Belladona is the binomial name for deadly nightshade.
The theme for this contest is Flora (plants). Flowers, trees, fungi, grass... They all make up so much of this planet we live on, each type of plant has its own ways of growing, its own unique defence mechanisms and its own symbiotic relationship. Some are giant, some are small, some are edible whilst others are completely poisonous, we rely on them every day of our lives.
We want you to create a�piece�of artwork which incorporates plants in any way shape of form. They should be the main focus or feature, or play a large part in the piece.
Artworks from when I was just a childWhat is up! I was tidying up a room the other day and came across a box of my old drawings, I really did draw a lot back then. So when looking through them I decided it might be a good idea to take photos of them and show the public. I am sure it may make you feel better about your art after seeing mine! Honestly speaking this is just around 2% of all the artworks I found and I ain't exaggerating... thats what happens when you are an only child.

Well I'm developing ideas and working on my new project POKEMON GRAY, this name was already determined that everyone expected him instead of BW2, and I'm really uncreative names for games, and when the greater need of the game and spritres because I have many fakes and the game will only be fakes.
The game takes place in the region of Kyoho, a whole new continent with various types of climates. The main point is about the legendary keeper of the stars, the guardian of the planets, and Pokemon Gray and the grand keeper of the black hole, the largest force in the universe, on this continent there are several temples on these pokemons that ancient civilizations knew and they will be revealed for the adventurous (YOU).

*** Personal update ~ Skip this ahead if you will, it's not relevant to the challenge ***
So, if you're a watcher/follower of mine, you should have noticed I have notably cut my fractal uploads down to one every couple weeks. The reason? University. I won't paste here my super long rant about how freaking incompetent and mad some of my teachers are, but long story short, I have two more exams I must pass with a high grade by September and I only have two more occasions to do so, since I will lose the scholarship I won this winter if I don't. I need a holiday people. Please send me your good vibes so that I can pass by the end of July instead of dragging those creepy tests down to almost the start of the upcoming academic year!
Okay student ramble over. On to more important things now.

Unfortunately, Lotus Flower didn't quite make it into the top 10% of the shorts category in the AOFAs. But, the good news is, due to there being a number of technical issues during their first ever Spring Showcase, Lotus will be re-screened during the 2014 Autumn Showcase! The film will be eligible for votes once more! Many thanks to everyone who took the time to support Lotus this time around, and I'll keep you all posted on the next set of AOFA festival dates.

"I'm going to try to disipate some doubts about CSW, I know you have been waiting a long time so I'll try to answer the most common questions:
First and most important is that the project has not been cancelled. We started to work professionaly and we have been expending a lot of time
without developing fully CSW to improve ourselves in other areas and taking a break doing different kind of things.
The truth is that we still have a lot of things about CSW that we haven't showed yet and some day will be shown;
my advice is that you just keep going on with your lives and someday you will find some update, but for the moment there isn't none.
Nothing of this can be published on the main site because we lost access to it a long time ago, we talked about that time ago. Also we can't release a first version
and then update it with downloable characters because the core of the game is not done, you might think it is by the videos, but it's

When I first sold LMS to Paramount, a lot of people asked me: "How much money did you get?" "You're probably rich now, right?"
I mean, the solid gold mansion I bought was just a little gift to myself...but...
Ever since I was little, I've known I wanted to draw. From the day my parents put a pencil in my hand, this was my future. I just knew it, I had that gut feeling. So I stuck to it, and thankfully it took me to heights I'd have never imagined possible. Now with my new book Redemption heading off to studios soon for a hopeful movie package, I can't wait to see where this new road takes me.
That said, there's something else that tops all of this.
The other night I went out to visit my girlfriend's cousin and her family. Incredibly kind people with very sweet kids. Other than the two parents, there were 3 kids, but the one who caught my interest was the eight-year old boy, Diego.

I'm not sorry at all that I am in the pursuit of beauty in my work.
I'm not going to stop for anyone. I do what I do, because I enjoy it.
For years all I built was big space marines and ww2 soldiers, no one ever once told me back then I should 'diversify' and 'do something else' no one ever hassled me either it's just pretty much accepted. Pretty girls though?
Well you know what, I call BULLSHIT.
If you look at my work and all you see is a sex-doll, that's your business not mine.
I never intended any of my girls to be this way. None. If you ask me about any of them, instead of taking them at face value like so many people do, you would discover that they all have intricate back stories, and all mean a great deal to me personally due to what was going on at the time in life etc.

Luxus and Luxrender Beginner's Guide - DAZ StudioLuxus and Luxrender Beginner's Guide - DAZ Studio1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Reality 2 might be the king of LuxRender plugins for DAZ Studio, and with Reality 3 on the horizon, that is not likely to change, but for those of us looking for something a little more flexible in the way it interfaces with LuxRender, the recently released Luxus is very a very attractive option. A number of LuxRender's features are not supported by Reality, but Luxus opens the options all the way out, and even has fields for entering newly released code to incorporate the latest LuxRender features.
The problem here is that configuring LuxRender's render engine and materials are complex tasks, and can be daunting to DS users that are used to the relative safety of the neat and simple interfac
