Unlike my version Jesse listened to my praises and added a separate slider for transparency so yes, you can add a reflective AND refractive sphere in the SAME image now
PLUS you can enable reflects on DIFS only for a best effect! Incredible!

Un-Occupy the InternetAre you tired of stupid governments trying to institute laws which regulate your internet use?Un-Occupy the Internet4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Are you sick of feeling like your voice is not being heard?
Have you tried some form of protest (in whatever country you might live), only to be beaten, tear gassed, or otherwise told to "shut up!"
Are you, like so many of us world-wide, disgusted with the unequal distribution of wealth? Sick of being part of the 99%?
Well, I have the cure...
Last month, we all saw just what kind of power we actually have... we shut down SOPA/PIPA
Millions of people world-wide decided we didn't want this stupid law, and we said so, in a very clear, very loud voice... and we can do the same to protest everything else we feel is wrong with the world.
This being leap year, we have one extra day this month, February 29, and I propose that we all Un-Occupy the Internet on that day.
What do I mean by this? My proposal is simple, and requires absolutely no effort on your part, in fact, it requires eve

I've shared this nifty little trick before - a home made tripod. It sounds impossible, but actually it's really practical and much easier than lugging the real thing around with you if it's not needed! Check out this articlefor more information on how to create it!

Home Made Reflector
Reflectors can be pretty expensive from time to time. I've been lucky to pick up a couple cheaply on Ebay and they serve the purpose but if you really want to save, then why not try making your own?

Within the mighty village of dAmn, a war is brewing -- a war to appease the Great Fella God!
Many in the past have sought ways to please this angry beast, and many have failed. These tales of great battle and loss are still whispered around the campfires of #devart: DaPineapple's valiant attempts to offer kingmancheng as a virgin sacrifice, or fourteenthstar's struggles to serenade Fella with her dulcet Scottish tones .. but nothing could be found to please the Great Fella God, not even a scantily clad fritsenator.
But now the tides are turning and the war is changing!
The mighty warrior Tachy-on along with the valiant troops of Community Volunteers have found a way to please Fella, and now the tribes of dAmn are competing for Fella's blessing -- and so can you!
You can help gain favor to you and your tribe by luring and trapping deviants into the great village of dAmn -- but that is not enough to please the Great Fe

#89: Frequently Asked QuestionsOk guys, I think it's time to do a little FAQ, because I read the same questions over and over.#89: Frequently Asked Questions4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let me see if it's useful for somebody.
OMG, what is this?
It's a fractal, baby!
What is a fractal?
It's a really difficult question to answer, but I'll try to keep it as simple as I can. So, fellow fractalists, if you're reading, I won't be that precise in answering.
Wikipedia says: "A fractal is a mathematical set that has a fractal dimension that usually exceeds its topological dimension and may fall between the integers."
Wait, what? I didn't even understand myself.
Ok, a fractal is basically the repetition of a same "image". This image can be repeated with its original dimension or fractal dimension (it can be resized).
For example, let's pick the Romanesco Broccoli (the image is from Wikipedia):
As you can see, it's a repetition of the same "peaks" over and over, each of them with diffe

NAWAKNawak-Factory is a unique group that shares the idea that anything and everything, even the most insignificant object, situation, or piece of nature, could be a great subject as soon as we give it the same attention and intention level as we usually do for things, people, or situations that are generally considered as "beautiful", "interesting", or in this case, "photo-worthy".

Apophysis Challenge #138I know how much all of you have mentioned that you look forward to Mondays for the Apophysis challenge. It's made me very happy that I can bring a little joy to the start of your week! My schedule has changed slightly and I'm no longer available at all on Monday's to take care of the challenge. Based off the recent poll I ran on my mainpage, it seems from your comments that the majority would prefer a Tuesday over Friday, which I am quite fine with. With that being said, this next Apophysis challenge will run from this Tuesday until next Tuesday.Apophysis Challenge #1384 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This

Apophysis RenderingIt has been brought to my attention that CMWVisualArts is willing to render Apophysis params for free at high quality. I was informed that this service is available to assist those in need of high quality renderings that their computer just won't allow due to not memory. If you are interested and the choice is yours here is a link to the journal explaining everything in detail.Apophysis Rendering4 years ago in Personal More Like This
the basics are listed below:
I'm willing to do so, for nothing in return. Just note these few things:
1.) ALL of the renders will be 10,000 density, so if you don't like high quality, don't do it.
2.) They will be whatever size you ask me to make them, I don't care how many hours it takes [max three days].
3.) If you don't want to wait over a day for it to finish, don't ask for me to render it.
4.) I will NOT put them in my gallery. Although it counts as a collaboration, the design was yours, not mine.
5.) These will be done one at a time by order of request, so you

I am continually amazed by the incredible work that my fellow artists and colorists are doing, and I wanted to make sure that they have a permanent place here in my account.

Apophysis 7X 15C - Installer available nowI have made an installer for Apophysis 7X 15C available at xyrus-worx.orgApophysis 7X 15C - Installer available now4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please be aware that this installer is for Microsoft Windows only. It comes in two versions: for the 32 bit and the 64 bit version of Apophysis 7X 15C. The two versions can be installed side-by-side. Even in a single folder (but be careful - you might not want to uninstall the 32 bit version if you have the 64 bit version in the same folder so I recommend keeping the folders separate)
Unlike for the ZIP-package, 32- and 64 bit version do not come in a single file!
Currently, the german, italian and chinese language packs are shipped with the installer. The other language packs are outdated and for the vanilla version 7x15 only.
The 32 bit-installer offers you to install a collection of DC-plugins as well as two sample scripts. Please mind that upon uninstallation, these plugin .DLL-files will be removed even if they were there before. This also app
Chaotica 0.48 for WindowsDownload for Windows 32/64bit: http://chaoticafractals.com/chaotica_0.48_win_noncommercial.zipChaotica 0.48 for Windows4 years ago in Personal More Like This
This release is mainly a bugfix release for the 0.47 beta, with many improvements to the user interface fixing issues such as the fractal not scaling when you changed resolution, imaging settings being spuriously reset and not saved properly etc. Hopefully it's a bit more friendly to use now It'll still crash if you try to restore state without having the original params loaded, that'll be fixed in the next release.
Another important change in this build is restored native support for bipolar, thanks to code Xyrus-02 provided from Apo7X15C beta 3. I'm hoping the small difference in handling the divide by zero and negative log etc will finally enable full compatibility - please test this and report if something looks wrong!
