Well, there it is. The cover that will - hopefully - entice readers to take a chance on the anthology that represents the true deviants of horror fiction here on deviant art. I hope it will see all of the authors within get the recognition they deserve and make their soon to be fans hunger for more from them. You guys may not become famous overnight. It'snot going to make you the next king right away. But you shouldn't want that anyway. Each of the voices in this anthology were unique in their own right and deserving of much respect. Consider it a stepping stone on your road to greater things.
It has been my honor working with all of you and being granted the opportunity to bring your work to the w

Hello again everyone!
Recently, an awesome friend of mine, TimberClipse, posted a Journal about The Visual Narrative Project.
"Are you a writer? Screenwriter? Storyteller? This is YOUR opportunity to get your story made into a short film!"
What is The Visual Narrative Project?
The Visual Narrative Project is a project in which you submit a short story (2-15 pages) that can be adapted into a film! These will go to Zev (TimberClipse) and Meredith, two students at Bard College at Simon's Rock. These stories can be made by anyone of any age and from any location, so share with your friends and consider submitting!
When is the story due?

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 .....2 years 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
Mandelbulb 3D Art in Short FilmQuite some time ago (9-8-2011) I was contacted along with other Mandelbulb 3D artists at Fractal Forums and DeviantArt and was asked for permission to use some of our work in a short, independent Science Fiction film. The production group is called We Were Monkeys and they were putting together the film for the Sitges Film Festival in Spain that October. They said that things went really well for them at the festival but they were making some revisions to the film before posting it online.Mandelbulb 3D Art in Short Film9 months ago in Personal More Like This
A few days ago they contacted those involved with the film and let us know that it is finally now available for viewing. It is titled OVO . It's quite interesting with well done effects. It's made with English sub-titles but spoken in Spanish(?). All of the MB3D artists got a screen credit at the end, so that was cool! Other MB3D artists include Jess

Major changes where made to the fractal flames generator T.I.N.A.::
- variation effect preview which can be turned on/off using a new button in the preview area. (This preview displays how the superimposition of all variations (of the currently selected transform) affects a rectangular grid of points. So it can be a great way of exploring what a certain variation actually does and how their parameters work.)
- minor improvements to the Flower3D and SubFlame random flame generators
- nBlur, linearT and linearT3D variations by FractalDesire
- post_zscale_wf and post_ztranslate_wf variations for better control of 3D fractals
- optimized coloring of the subflame_wf variation
- new exponent parameter for the spherical3d_wf variation
As usual click the "Random flames" button to start playing around and have fun

Apophysis animation tutorial using apophymatorHello dellow feviants.... erm... fellow Deviants (Get out of here Jar Jar! )Apophysis animation tutorial using apophymator4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I was recently asked by a fellow youtuber to make a tutorial on how to make animations in apophysis using the apophymator script. What follows is copied verbatim, typos and all, from my message to said youtuber.
< copypasta >
You first need to get the apophymator script at http://drop.io/apophymator
unzip it into your scripts directory. If you do not have one, make one.
First thing you'll need to do is to create several "key frames". These are the frames that the script will morph from one key frame to the next. When making keyframes, make sure that they all have the same number of transforms (triangles) or the script most likely will crash.
Usually when I make my videos, I start with a flame I previously made that I think will make a good animation. I work backwords for a few frames (about 4 or 5ish) to twe
Isolating Structures In MB3DHow to clean up your image background ~Isolating Structures In MB3D1 year 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

I feel so awful that work on the script was delayed over and over last year.
My flesh and bone life has been and continues to be complicated in so many ways since at least 2 years ago.
If there are any Deviant personal injury lawyers that can help a poor old fellow out, my gratitude would be immeasurable.
From all the reading about laws I've been through it appears I have more than enough cause to bring the problems I face to a court to judge. (But legal systems are intensely complex, so I do not have any way to know without professional help.)
I want little more than to remove myself from this house- (actually apartment-) of-horrors t
New fave feature - Photoshop CS6So how many people have installed Photoshop CS6 by now. It's only been about 5 days since it's available but I guess I'm anxious to hear from people who have installed it or If you waiting till the full version to come out, Kosher or Non Kosher. There's a comment on my last journal that says something like "I'm waiting to download the pirated version. I am not naive and I know many, many people are going to do the same, but that's not relevant to this journal entry. Personally I like it very much. I've been fooling around with 3D x64.

+ Fixed two strings regarding the Chaotica integration. They were always english. The language files have been adjusted accordingly.
+ Fixed the "dot"-bug with the waves2-, noise- and crop-variations (and possibly more) occuring when you use multithreaded rendering. The origin was a structural misconception with the opacity handling. It now works smooth & fine! No corrupted renders in my own tests. If you have some after this release, please report!

This release is mainly a bugfix release for the 0.47 beta, with many improvements to the user interface fixing issues such as the fractal not scaling when you changed resolution, imaging settings being spuriously reset and not saved properly etc. Hopefully it's a bit more friendly to use now It'll still crash if you try to restore state without having the original params loaded, that'll be fixed in the next release.
Another important change in this build is restored native support for bipolar, thanks to code Xyrus-02 provided from Apo7X15C beta 3. I'm hoping the small difference in handling the divide by zero and negative log etc will finally enable full compatibility - please test this and report if something looks wrong!

I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Nintendo Direct unveiled a bunch of big announcements the other day, the highlights being a HD remake of Wind Waker, announcement of a new Zelda, a new Yoshi's Story game, a new 3D Mario game, a new Mario Kart game, and a new Smash Bros game to be unveiled at E3 this year. Other info like a possible sequel to Xenoblades, updates on Bayonetta 2, and a forthcoming WiiU firmware update that'll alleviate some of the sluggish load times and unlock the Virtual Console (as well as the announcement that Gamecube games and GBA games will be possibly sold in the eShop).
Quite a lot of info, but here's my question. Why is everyone surprised at it? I've lived through every console generation with Nintendo and I can honestly say, a lot of this wasn't really a surprise to me. Like, yeah of course they're gonna make a new Smash Bros, Mario Kart, and 3D Mario game. It's friggin' Nintendo. Why is that a surprise? It's not like those are second tier franchises like Metro

Despite the increase in activity from me here on DA recently, I'm not entirely "back" in the normal sense of the word. I'm kinda just tip-toeing the waters to see if things have calmed a bit. I'm still trying to get through my issues, with mixed success, and a two month leave of absence isn't going to undo years of stress buildup and stubbornness. But I'm working on it, slowly but surely. You might see some new work here or there, but I don't think I'm ready yet to jump back into doing any of my longer narratives.
In fact, judging by my recent comic's reception, I probably am not ready for a full fledged return just yet...

1.What is apophysis? Its a free program used to create digital images based on mathematical equations. Don't worry the program does most of the work. A more basic way of looking at it would be you start with a single point and then add to it in different directions until you have an image.
Here Are a couple examples of what you could create using this program as you can see you add a lot of points to come up with a finished product. You can also see that the possibilities are virtually endless.
