Artistry in UF No. 4A Series By The FounderArtistry in UF No. 43 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This is a continuation of a monthly feature of various people's works created in Ultra Fractal, showing some of the amazing artistry that I particularly admire. Some of the artists are no longer active here at dA, or scarcely come here and so will be older works, many of which were created before facilities in UF became more "visual", and so a very good retention of learning knowledge (or at least a cataloguing) of what did what was perhaps more needed.
The Master Gem-maker
One of Jim's major developments has been in his creation of beautiful, lively looking gems that are always a pleasure to look at. They seem to sparkle with highlights and shadow-play and his consistent choice of colourings and surrounding imagery make these images quite unique. There is great use of texture too, and they need to be looked at in full view to appreciate the finer details of hi

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!

Fractal Software to Create Beautiful Fractals.Fractal Software To Create These Beautiful FractalsFractal Software to Create Beautiful Fractals.1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
There are many different kinds of fractal generating software out there, just waiting for an artist to create beautiful fractal images.
Many of them are free and some of them even have creators who are members here at Deviant Art!.
There are groups available that are devoted to specific programs....and there are groups that solicit your art no matter which
software you choose to use.
This journal will by no means be exhaustive, or complete....
.....but will give you some idea as to where YOU might like to start on your fractal-creating journey.
March FeatureThis will be my last feature using this skin. The wonderful NellyAsher has designed one just for me, and I am so excited to use it. All thru March, Dreams of Geneva is gathering donations for the Non-Profit Organization RAINN. It is short for the Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network. Kicking off for April's National Sexual Abuse Awareness Month. For those who donate, several of our artists will be giving a free commission, good, or service. With all the love we have on the site, I wanted to share it and thought this cause would be a great fit for us. Please stop by @ https://www.facebook.com/dreamsofgeneva Thank you so much to all of the following artists, who make me smile everyday, and cause me to get lost on this site.

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.

Tasty Tweaks ProjectHello my fellow friends, watchers and also random visitors/readersTasty Tweaks Project3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This Article goes out to all Ultra Fractal Users/Artists on dA, so it would be great, if you could +fav this article if the message appeals to you - also it would be awesome, if you could spread the word yourself
The past days I discovered my special interest in tweaking other people's Parameters to learn and to just create my own vision from what is already given. There are a lot of groups that offer Tweaking Circles/Round Robins like :iconfractalcircles: or :iconroundrobin-central: just to name two of them.
My project is some kind of a fusion between Circles/Round Robin's and Challenges.
I thought of the following:
Within a certain amount of time (let's say for example 1 month) there will be a Tasty Tweaks "Round". The whole thing will be running as follows.
1. I write a SignUp Journal that will always be named "Tasty Tweaks #Number" or something like that.

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 .....3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Day of the CatHi Friends,Day of the Cat6 months ago in Personal More Like This
August, 8th, is the worldwide day of the cats.
Our furry friends, who drives us insane, who comforts us, who always knows, who is the one with the alergic reaction, who looks always innocent, even when the rest of our meal is showing around their mouths...
To quote my beloved best sentences...
Dogs have owners, cats have staff
Cats are always cats...

As a main catalyst to the artistry in UF was, and still is in another form, the classes held by Janet Parke known here as infinite-art, I will start with a feature of some of her wonderful work from her dA gallery.
Before going further though, sadly the courses can no longer be done on line in the way they used to be. However in one sense this takes the pressure off the student to get homework done within a set time-scale. However, the

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

Basics of Colour - for Ultra FractalLooking at parameters, both from DA and Ultra Fractal Mailing list I have noticed a lack of understanding as to how colours interact. So I have decided to write a few helpful hints.Basics of Colour - for Ultra Fractal2 years ago in Personal More Like This
1) The Colour Wheel - http://www.colormatters.com/color-and-design/basic-color-theory
All colours can be made from just three. Blue, Red and Yellow - for instance if you mix Blue and Red you get Purple, Red and Yellow make orange etc. Blue Red and Yellow are called primaries. Purple, Green and Orange are called Secondaries and Tertiaries are combinations of two of these
Basics of Colour - The Colour Wheel (just click on thumbnail for parameter file)
2) RGB v CYMK
RGB - Red Green and Blue relates to the colours that are mixed by an imaging device (TV screen, Monitor, Digital Camera) to produce an image
CYMK- Cyan (Blue) Magenta (Red) Yellow and Black refers to the colours that a printer's inks

In this contest, you will be provided with three tutorials from the Fractal Resources Gallery. (See rules below.) Use one or more of these tutorials for a chance to win! It's the Best of Both Worlds (resources and fractal art!) to offer an amazing Fractal class!
