Isolating Structures In MB3DHow to clean up your image background ~Isolating Structures In MB3D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wow. I haven't done a journal in ages. I thought I would share a little trick for getting a nice clean background when you want to isolate a structure in Mandelbulb 3D. Why? Because sometimes the structures behind the main focus of your image or the main structure are either just small repeats of the main structure, or they are fragmented and in one way or another just not as interesting. Or the background might bury the foreground object in detail or draw attention away from what you really want the viewer to focus on. People strive for a lot of detail, and that's fine, and sometimes it works. But often I find that there's no main focus to frame your point of view. (Edit: I forgot to mention this is made using Mandelbulb 3D version 1.8.2 and I fixed a few typo's!)
Sometimes you're able to focus on the foreground structure through clever use of fog, lights and depth of field settings. Nothing wrong with that either, so this is just another

Showcasing All My FriendsI love the idea of showcasing different types of art here on DA, so decided I would do one journal entry featuring one piece of art from each of my DA friends.. It was incredibly hard trying to select just one piece from everyone.Showcasing All My Friends11 months ago in Personal More Like This

Mandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic TipsMandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic TipsMandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic Tips1 year ago in Personal More Like This
First thing we'll cover are some tweaking tips. Tweaking, not to be confused with Twerking. Almost everyone does it. It's one of the best ways to learn. This section of the tutorial will cover some of the basics that will hopefully help new MB3D users with tweaking. Just don't let words like iterations, raystep multiplier and stepthwidth limiter scare you off. You don't need to know the math behind these things. Just consider those words as lables to show you where a setting is and you'll do fine. That's what the GUI is for, to make using the program fairly simple. I'm going to use a sample parameter of mine from about 2 1\2 years ago which is a tweak in a long line of tweaks. You will find that I am guilty of a few things that I'm going to cover, so it's a good example.
As always, I like to mention that I am not a tech giant. I really don't know a lot of the technical aspects of Mandelbulb 3D. If you are interested in the technical

Just a quick heads-up to let you know that our Mandelbulb 3D formula wizard, 'dark-beam'; after a well-deserved sabbatical, has now returned to active service, and has written some fascinating new formulas for our much loved prog!
If you're new to Mandelbulb 3D, and haven't yet got the full - original - 'dark-beam' formula pack, you can download 'new fmlas.zip' from:
For the very latest formula releases, again on 'new fmlas.zip' - including the brilliant new RandCubesIFS - goto:
Note: before downloading you should perhaps rename it, say; 'new fmlas2.zip', in order to avoid overwriting the original .zip file. Got your ears on Luca?

Patty and Jorge's Amazing PongRecently, Patty - Undead-Academy and Jorge - batjorge reached the epic milestone of 1,000 entries in their Fractal Pong.Patty and Jorge's Amazing Pong3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
In case you are unfamiliar with the term 'pong', it is an artistic collaboration between two fractalists. First one artist renders a work and passes the finished parameters to the second. The second artist renders a variation of the first work and passes the new parameters back to the first artist for their turn at tweaking. This process repeats. The artworks evolve over time and at the hands of each artist.
While pongs are not exclusive to fractals, the parameter-driven software lends itself well to this type of collaboration.
Patty & Jorge did not invent the idea of a pong but unless it can be proven otherwise, they have just finished the longest running pong in DeviantArt history.
:iconpongorama: is a group devoted to Pong Teams. We felt ourselves lucky to have Patty & Jorge join the group and let us host a

My deviantART StoryMy deviantART Story6 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This was my very first DA submission I had seen a wallpaper very similar so I used it as my inspiration to do a digital painting in PS.
I was new to the digital Art scene and had basic PS experience, due to a disability I could no longer use my Pencils to hand sketch which was always my favorite medium.
So I thought I would give digital Art a go and chose to make use of PS, that was a little over 1 year ago.
So I began browsing DA and getting familiar with things and checking out the different styles of Art.
That is when I came across this beautiful piece by my Friend Xzendor7, I was blown away!
I was really curious as to how this was done, and Rolando always gives a very detailed description of his process.
This is how I came to know about Fractals and Fractal Art and also what makes a "Fractal Composition" , it was love at first sight so to speak
This is "Sakura" my very first attempt at maki

Mandelbulb 3D, my process. Over the last few months I have gotten a lot of questions on the process I use to create my images. It has only been about the last year that I feel I am really understanding Mandelbulb and creating more with purpose and not chance. However chance and luck does still come into the creation process. I view what we do as Mandelbulb artists a bit like exploring. I am an artist who has been making art for well over 40 years. All my years of painting and photography does play a roll in how I use Mandelbulb. This is not a tutorial but a look at how I create an image for those that are new to Mandelbulb 3D.Mandelbulb 3D, my process.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
