Creating a Beautiful Fractal ImageThere are so many beautiful fractal images in the art world...Creating a Beautiful Fractal Image2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
...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.

How Malware Works Via Banner Ads
As many deviants know, deviantART has been working hard to combat malicious banner ads that infiltrate
our advertising network, and we've previously addressed this issue in
and August 2011.
In our ongoing effort to keep the deviantART community safe, we wanted to share the following
video that explains how malicious ads inundate the Web.

Malware advertising is an Internet-wide problem that affects many of the Net's top sites.

In seeking to improve my images, I thought to remind myself of resources I've used in the past as well as ones I scoped out more recently via google. I also wanted to give back and to pass on this information to other artists.
Check out some of these resources. Some of them are for 'painters' and some for digital artists and designers. All of them will provide you some useful ideas - things you may have even studied before and forgotten!
Please add your own resources, thoughts and ideas and pass it on! Feel free to copy and paste or share - though with my name would be nice! hehe

Upgrades to Quarterly Check PaymentsAfter receiving a great deal of feedback, we're excited to announce an upgrade to the My Earnings quarterly check payment system! Instead of waiting until the end of a quarter for deviantART to process your check, you can now request a check whenever you'd like! For example, if you made some big sales after submitting a new Print, you can request a check to be mailed to you right away instead waiting until the quarter ends.Upgrades to Quarterly Check Payments3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
As long as you have at least $20 worth of earnings in your available balance, you can log in to your My Earnings page, click "Withdraw by Check," fill out your information and the amount you'd like to request, and then
BANNED [Update]BANNED [Update]3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you know of any Deviants that violate the rules, report them, and if necessary, send the info Kira-of-deviantART's way. I've seen them on every spammer account I've seen so far, even the ones that joined the very same day [it's not hard to catch spammers after they've spammed]. They've done a very good job at keeping dA as spam-free as possible, so if a Deviant needs banning, inform Kira-of-deviantART. They'll make short work of rule breakers.
I've gotten quite a few people banned lately.

CHEETAH!CHEETAH!3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
One of the greatest thrills in game viewing is to see cheetah - the sleekest, fastest, most elegant wild cat in the world, silent and deadly, but utterly enchanting and engrossing to watch. Let me say at the outset, that this tale of a female cheetah and her two cubs stalking impala has a happy ending for the impala, she misses her kill. Thus, no need to worry about dead animals here.
We were on a game drive from Phinda Vlei Lodge, pronounced "pinda fly"==> http://www.andbeyond.com/phinda-vlei-lodge/ , one evening when we spotted a young female cheetah and her two cubs emerging from a bush lair. We knew she had been there all day, as we had seen her briefly in the very early morning when we had passed this way. Our Ranger, Dumi, thought that she had probably had a kill the day before, and she had spent that night and this day sleeping and guarding her two cubs. Normally, she would not have needed to hunt for prey for

Clarifying an Issue with Stock ResourcesThere appears to be a fair amount of misunderstanding on the subject of stock resources so what I would like to do today is attempt to clarify several issues which are of importance to the artists who generously provide stock resources to the public for use and hopefully dispel the confusion and misinformation which is beginning to circulate.Clarifying an Issue with Stock Resources2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
The first issue at hand is in regards to your personal stock terms
Your Personal Stock Terms
Officially deviantART maintains only one "automatic" restriction and that is "No Commercial Use" and that particular restriction can easily be overridden by the actual stock provider.
We only ask a few things from you in return;
Best of the RestI'm having to draw my adventures through KwaZulu Natal to a close for the time being, as I prepare for another trip to Victoria, Australia, where I hope to look up my old pal Digger the Koala. I thought I'd finish this South African trip by presenting some of the other animals and birds that I encountered. Hopefully, having seen the cheetah, the hippos, the rhinos, the cranes and all the other shots, you will still find some interest in these.Best of the Rest2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The first of the set is this little fellow - a suni ==> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suni. This is a tiny species of antelope (not more than 18 inches), quite rare and very shy, found more in well wooded areas rather than the open bush. We encountered this one and a couple of others at Phinda Vlei one evening. Despite the size and the "bambi" look these suni antelope are very territorial and defend their territories by fighting with those sharp horns.

Fella would like to invite you to be a part of a new contest, one that looks at a medium that is often overlooked on deviantART, Film.
Since before the 1900s film has been a part of people's lives. Today, feature films are created with huge budgets in mass of $200 Million+. But, often times short films, which do not get seen as much in the United States (but are more readily available in some other countries) are some of the most impressive films.
We would like to invite you to make a short film. All the details are below, so get on it!

I really hope you will all hear and LEARN from this:
2 really GOOD friends of mine were in some 'tangle' with each other.
The result being a Journal was sent out (too fast) denigrating my other friend.
I notice on d/a that often people are too quick to make accusations especially when it comes to 'stealing' art.
IF this happens to any of you, please talk to the 'offending' person first, don't BLOCK them so that they cannot even have a chance to reply.......this is pointless.
This has happened to me on a Group I ran and NOT to be able to
'justify' myself was frustrating in the extreme.
We have enough Wars and fights and trying to live......please think before you take action.
In this case it has more to do with 'hacking' than anything else.
