Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals issue 14The first issue of this year! This time I want to present some of the coolest fractals from 2011, it was really difficult to pick out some faves of the year, you are too good!!! But first, a short resume of last year's happenings.Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals issue 141 year ago in Personal More Like This
What happened last year?
Pretty lot! There have been fractal circles with tweaking fractals around, both in the group :#fractalcircles: and ponging parameters in :#aposhack: , Light `SuicideBySafetyPin introduced us for the Inspiration station, the fractal flash mob, a collective feature of different artists. *heavenriver has her UF challenge going on http://heavenriver.deviantart.com/journal/Ultra-Fractal-monthly-Challenges-Redux-Vol-12-277027446 and `f--l--A--r--k has his Apo challenge http://fav.me/d4l1fc6 and it would be great if we could keep up supporting them!

First of all a few words about our challenges.
The February Challenge Wrap-up Journal http://ultra-fractal-redux.deviantart.com/journal/Wrapping-Up-The-February-Challenge-357233210 brought some interesting responses from people about things they felt they had learned, or found difficult about working with the Harlequin II colouring. If you'd like to see what was said and discussed do take a look! Remember that comments and discussions can take days to finish so don't forget to check out interactive journals like this more than once so you don't miss anything.
Our current March Challenges have seen some interesting results coming in and seem to be giving many of you plenty to think about and work on. I have noticed several Laris formula images coming up in DA's fractal galleries so clearly this challenge is giving people fresh ideas in their own work. Excellent!
Remember that the primary challenges are not about winning or losi

Before we get stuck in this month I would just like to mention that the Founder of this group, =AnnaKirsten, is collecting points in order to make this a supergroup. This would make a huge difference to what we can do in terms of presentation as well as giving us access to many other great features!
Anna is too polite to beg but me, I have no shame whatsoever (!!) so please... if you have a few points going spare do please consider donating them on Anna's profile: http://annakirsten.deviantart.com Thank you!!
Also... Our current Challenge http://fav.me/d5tdc8b is doing really well. We have just about two weeks to go before it ends, so we eagerly look forward to any further entries that may be coming our way!
So... as promised, we are using this mid-month feature to bring a couple of issues regarding the use of Ultra Fractal to the attentio

Ever Wanted To Work For Visual Arts Academy?So, hey, serious question for anyone. Want to help out run the website where I host my Apophysis Courses? The current administrator is stepping down. This could possibly mean the end of Visual Arts Academy, which would make me very very sad. It needs someone who can handle money, registration of students, hiring of instructors, updating of website design and content, and stuff like that. You could make some money too! (Which is always a plus, right?) Let me know if you're interested and I will start communications between you and the current administrator, Virginia.Ever Wanted To Work For Visual Arts Academy?11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Service?I was initially confused when I heard the word "service" used with these agencies:Service?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
INTERNAL REVENUE "SERVICE"
CABLE TV "SERVICE "
CITY, COUNTY & PUBLIC "SERVICE"
These are not examples of what I thought "SERVICE" MEANT.
BUT TODAY, I OVERHEARD TWO FARMERS TALKING, AND ONE OF THEM SAID HE HAD HIRED A BULL TO "SERVICE" A FEW COWS.
!!! ....... IT ALL CAME INTO FOCUS.
NOW I UNDERSTAND WHAT ALL THOSE AGENCIES ARE DOING (TO US)!
NOW YOU ARE AS ENLIGHTENED AS I AM.

A Dog's Purpose?
(from a 6-year-old).
Being a veterinarian, I had been called to examine a ten-year-old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron, his wife Lisa , and their little boy Shane, were all very attached to Belker, and they were hoping for a miracle.
I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I told the family we couldn't do anything for Belker, and offered to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home.
As we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be good for six-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt as though Shane might learn something from the experience.
The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as Belker 's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away.
The little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition wi
LIVE TUTORIALS--- LIVE TUTORIALS ---LIVE TUTORIALS1 year ago in Personal More Like This
By request I can do free live tutorials on Ultra Fractal. I use Join.me. It's feature that allows you to follow my screen and chat by text. Some teqniques are best explained from my chatroom. Take a look in my gallery if there is anything that looks like something you want to learn and I'll see if I can teach that. I'm not good at abstract stuff, though. Tutorials does not always show a lot of techniques. It can be the thoughts about the effect that is just as important to grasp.
For some tutorials and techniques you will need some preknowledge about Ultra Fractal.
Interested? Just note me or enter my chatroom http://chat.deviantart.com/chat/Jimmiesroom or Aposhack http://chat.deviantart.com/chat/aposhack to find me.

Feature of a Beloved Fractal Artist...:icontwinkleplz:This week we would like to highlight the art of a uniquely talented and beloved fractal artist.....:iconsuicidebysafetypin: This wonderful lady (whose name is Light) has given so much to the fractal community through her devotion through :iconthe-aposhack: as well as being the former Deviant Art Community relations person. She shares her insights on creating fractals with anyone who asks her a question....as well as shares her parameters to teach HOW to create some of the most beautiful fractal arts on DA. Suffering the loss of her Granny this past summer as well as a major move of residence has served to make this a difficult year for her.....and has caused her to take a step back to re-center herself and look forward to a brighter new year. I invite you to to add your own voice of appreciation in the comments section below.:icontwinkleplz:Feature of a Beloved Fractal Artist...5 months ago in Personal More Like This

R.I.P ~ August 5, 1930 - August 25, 2012
Today we mourn the loss of a true hero and icon of a generation, if not an entire century: Neil Alden Armstrong, former NASA astronaut and first person to set foot on the Moon, has passed away due to complications from cardiovascular surgery. Armstrong had recently turned 82 years old on August 5.
I was 15 when he stepped on the Moon. I watched it on TV for hours on end. He was my Hero.

Have you heard about .....Several weeks ago, in my daily effort to view all the daily submissions from the many Groups and individuals I watch, I started to notice more and more frequently that some of the Fractals I was viewing were being created using this new program. First it was just a few a day, then suddenly I was seeing dozens of Flames being created with JWildFire! Curios about this newcomer to the Fractal Scene I went to the website and discovered that the software is designed to run using Java and will run on multiple Platforms.Have you heard about .....1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, I with to the developers da page and told him that I had created a folder in Xtreme Fractals for the software! http://xtremefractals.deviantart.com/gallery/34103672 I also grabbed a snippet of information about the software to put on the left info panel of the folder. Since then the developer, *thargor6 has joined our Group and he and I have had several discussions about his program! What follows is a result of those discussion. Here's Andreas aka - Thagor6
