Happy late Halloween - Sweet and Sour FeaturesHello fellow deaviantsHappy late Halloween - Sweet and Sour Features3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Unfortunately almost noone answered to my journal where I was asking for
pic suggestions. Well - I've made my own choices anyways but yeah. Bad
luck for you I guess
So why is this article so late? Well yesterday was Halloween right? I
have been to a Halloween Party with two Friends, even though the
Halloween over here isn't what Halloween is over there in the US - no
children running around playing Trick or Treat and the Parties are kinda
lame as well, but we still had fun. I dressed up as some kind of Witch
and my friend went as Black Widow. Only our male compagnion wasn't
dressed up - but he came in for free since he knew the staff
Anyways - Here I goe with my late Halloween Feature. Please FAV the
article and show the artists some love or I will send someone to haunt

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.
That means if you don't want to miss s
Merry Christmas and a Happy New YearHello fellow friends, watchers and everyone else who stumbles upon this...Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today is the 4th Advent, in not even 6 (for some people 7) days is Christmas Eve. Because I won't be at home from Christmas until the 29th or even 30th of December I decided to put up a nice Feature of Christmas Art. Today I had my Mum, her boyfriend and his father over for dinner. We had fried trout filets, boiled potatoes and cucumber sald and a nice apple-vanilla-cinnamon junket as Dessert. I wanted to do something for them - they always support me so much and the father of my mum's boyfriend invites us for dinner so often and he just won't let me pay when we go to a restaurant. So yeah - this is the only chance I have to invite all of them for dinner...and it was so nice even though a lot of work - I guess I will do it again I think somewhere around next year - maybe in April before Easter Sunday or something like that...maybe earlier..I don't know yet ^^ I'm

What is a Fractal?
A Fractal is a digital artwork that is based on parametres and formulas that are based on mathematics(Geometry). The name Fractal comes from the latin words fractus (fractured, refracted) or frangere (to break into pieces).
The one who coined the term of Fractal was Benoît Mandelbrot. He was a Mathematician born on 20th of November 1924 in Warsaw and died on 14th of October 2010 in Cambridge/US. He contributed a lot to the thematic of financial mathematics, theoretical physics and chaos science. But the highest popularity he gained with being the father of Fractals.
What is Fractal Art?
Fractal Art is , like name says, Art made from Fractals Too simple? Well You can create a Fractal and call it Art and you can create several Fractals and stick them together and call it Art in either way Fractal Art i

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!

Last Honor for a recently passed away deviantHello there fello friends, watchers and deviants...Last Honor for a recently passed away deviant3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
One week ago was a sad day for the family of :iconkram666: and the deviant community.
He passed away at the age of only 48. Him who was so dedicated to digital art will never leave anyone of us a comment or reply to those given to him. He will never again fill our inboxes with his colorful fractals or cute photos of the foxes.
But even if his body has passed away - he will stay alive within us and within the art in his gallery.
I'm sure that he is somewhere where he can still appreciate our support of his art, so this is my hommage to a wonderful artist AND his family.
With heartfelt condolences,

Regarding CopyrightsIn light of all the problems people are having with other sites taking our fractals and using them as they see fit...i have put together some information...Regarding Copyrights3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The best advice in this post is: If you need legal counsel, then seek it. Don't get it from the internet or this post. Hire professionals who do it for a living, and for the love of god, don't defend yourself in court.
you all know i am not very technical so this is gonna be pretty rough at best but this is what i do if i find my art somewhere i don't want it.......
the first thing i do is contact the person displaying it and advise them all my images are copyright protected and please remove it....
then i wait a few days...
if the image is still there then i send the site an email with this form.....keeping things professional at this point is a must...and just sending an email asking them to remove the image will not work......here is the form i use

FFF series issue 13You wonder what's with the weird title? Yep, I thought I should submit with sta.sh instead of my journal, and of course, it was the famous 30 character limit again. Nevermind, I've heard that it will change soon. I'm back again with the series. And from now on, the series will come out semimonthly instead of each week. It gives me more time to dig up new goodies and collect resources and news. And you'll not be tired of the squirrel and her instant chattering. At least I hope so The fractal artists here never disappoint, it's a constant stream of lovely beauties into the fractal gallery. Let us dive into them, shall we?FFF series issue 133 years ago in Personal More Like This

The first news with Rocking Fractals went over very well - and I got many comments from non-fractal artists, saying they really enjoyed it.
And since fractal art is still in the 'underdog' category getting folks on dA more familiar with it, sounds grand to me.
I would love to get you familiar with few artists - some new, some not so new and a nice mixed-smoothie of fractal works flowing to the gallery on regular bases and that will mean "Fractals that ROCK" is here to stay and give you updates on newest finds and excellent compositions and visions - Enjoy !!

The Fractal Universe:icontechgnotic:The Fractal Universe4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Is a photograph only a record, something created by a machine? Can photography ever truly be considered art? That question seems quaint and laughable these days, but if you do a little research you will find that once upon a time it was a raging debate. Thankfully a consensus has been reached that the agency of the photographer – his or her eye and critical mind – choosing the subject and manipulating the machine (the camera that is the art instrument) is what establishes photographs as potential works of art when created by an artist-photographer. Pretty basic common sense, huh? So why then is there now a debate as to whether FRACTAL ART is truly art – or just something produced by poking patterns into a computer? Isn't it just really random e-graffiti, a fibonacci button mash?
Here we go again… Hopefully it won’t take nearly a century again before fractal art is recog
