Fractals in Nature or Nature in FractalsHere is a Feature as part of the :iconcommunityrelations: Project Educate: Fractals Week 2011!
By now you may be knowing what Fractals are...so many other features here explained it clearly...so I'm not going to define it....
In one of his speeches, Mandel Brot, Father of Fractals, explains how he construct the geometry of things which have no geometry....
..ie, shape of Clouds, shape of Coast lines, shape of trees etc...He named it as Fractal geometry!
Self similarity is the main characteristic feature of these naturally occurring things around us...If you observe the structure of our Lungs,
structure of our Nervous System & Structure of Blood vessels we can see this phenomenon.
So we can say that we are breathing through our Fractal Lungs!!! Our blood is flowing through Fractal Veins etc...
In short Fractals are there in nature and we Fractalists try to create nature through Fractals using different Fractal generating programs....
Here are some examples....

Project Educate - Fractal Week - The art of TweakHi there all!
It’s… “Project Educate - Fractal Week”!
An initiative brought to you by SuicideBySafetyPin and the Fractal Community

My little contribution to the Project goes in this article. The main theme is: tweaks, tweakers and tweaking! I’m covering Apophysis program but feel free to read the article to the end to get a general idea of tweaking. :)
To tweak or not to tweak, that is the big question.
First of all, what is that strange word tweaking?
I guess since fractal art began, the programmers of the fractal programs have created formulas and plugins and a lot of resources to use to create the beauties we are, now, so delighted to see. With the expanse of fractal art, other fractalists decided to share their discoveries in form of tutorials or in the for

Fractal Flowers for &quot;Project Educate Fractal
Hello there fellow fractal artists and fractal lovers!! This week is "Fractal Week" holded by projecteducate :la: and this article is part of my lil contribution :giggle:
Today we will talk about “Fractal Flowers”, but first what is a fractal?
- A fractal has been defined as "a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole. The term fractal was coined by Benoît Mandelbrot in 1975 and was derived from the Latin fractus meaning "broken" or "fractured”. While fractals are a mathematical construct, they are found in nature, which has led to their inclusion in artwork. (Wikipedia)
So, fractal can be found in nature but at the same time nature can be found in fractals! One of the most representative natural shapes we see in fractals are flowers, and lets gonna be serious who doesn’t like

can you please introduce yourself?Hi! My name is Light...yes that's really my name...it could have been worse, my brother's name is Pretty Rock..:giggle:

What is the first thing that makes you attracted to Fractal Art?
i was looking for a background on google
Fractals The Art of Trial and ErrorI remember the first time I attempted fractal art. I wasn’t even on DeviantART at the time. I was talking to some friends over the internet, and one of them, a moderator at the time, was starting a community project to make a fractal tarot card deck. It occurred to me that out of the many artsy things I’d tried, fractals were not among them. I immediately downloaded some programs and started learning.
Platinus offered tons of times to show me the ropes, but I’ve always been the self-learner type, and most of what I know was learned through trial and error. I figured out how to manipulate the transforms in Apophysis, I was able to understand what variations did what, and I taught myself how to make things the colors I wanted them to be.
I learned the hard way about parameter files and what to save. I actually deleted some of my parameters without even thinking because I thought it was a useless file taking up space. I lost some more later due to a computer crash that
Project Educate Fractal WeekHi my name is Light and i am a fractalholic......oh wait ….wrong meeting!
  
Hello!  Welcome to Project Educate Fractal Week. My mission this week is to try and explain what fractal art is, show you some programs used to create fractal art, and get you totally addicted to it like I am.
“What is Fractal Art?” i could copy something straight from wikipedia...or get one of my well versed fractal friends to give me a technical answer but....that’s just not my style..
I don’t really understand the “math” behind fractal art. I don’t want to. I just want the tools to make beautiful images. Platinus once told me “ a painter doesn’t really have to know what’s in the paint or how the canvas was made to be able to create beautiful work”  so I live by those words. If you have been thinking about trying fractals but stopped because you don’t know anything about the math requir
Project Educate - Epic World of Fractal Art~WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF FRACTAL ART~
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).
Benoît Mandelbrot
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 :D 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

Photography Weekly Header created by TouchedD

“Photography deals exquisitely with appearances, but nothing is what it appears to be.” - Duane Michals



Still Life is the theme of this weeks article given that it's Still Life Week over at projecteducate! I'm living and breathing still life works right now, and actually it's quite nice. I've discovered some fantastic talent on deviantART, conducted some awesome interviews and started up a group with the wonderful claremanson If you want a sneak peek head over to Still-Life-Stills But really the whole definition and ideal of Still Life has eluded me for quite some time and was something I deliberately avoided because I didn't believe in it. If you take an image, you have stilled life. By rights this means that everything out there is Still Life photography. Even when you're capturing movement, you're stilling it for just a few seconds. So why then, do we have Still Life as something very different? In the French language Still Life is referred to as Nature Morte which basically means dead nature. The concept of painting or photographing Still Life stemmed from capturing something that was once alive and forever preserving it in an image - stilling it. These days, Still Life is anything that doesn't move. So if there are People, Pets, Wild Animals, Birds or Insects in your work then It's not still life!

Project Educate - Still Life Photography Week


Still Life Photography week kicked off with a couple of polls! The first asked Within Still Life Photography what's your favourite subject to shoot? The general view was that most people who answered it had more than one! But food came in second :drool:
I also asked What do you struggle the most with when trying to shoot still life? and there wasn't much variation between answers! A lot of you said Lighting, many said Creativity and others struggled with Composition.

Caution: Your Copyright is at Risk

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 10, 2011, 12:11 AM



Earlier today I was notified that my image "Depth and Color" was being displayed on a site that does not have permission to do so! I quickly went to the site to see for myself and there it was! It was uploaded by a member of the site that is no longer active, but the damage has already been done!

The name of the site is Wallpaper Abyss and is located here >> wall.alphacoders.com/index.php…

There are lots of images on this site that I feel are being "S T O L E N !!!"

It is my intention to pursue this fully and with the intent to get the site shut down permanently ! I could use your help in this matter!

Here is the webmaster's contact email address: admin@alphacoders.com

I did email him myself and stated that the image was copyrighted to me and should be removed "Today!"

Mr. David West responded to my email and his response follows:

Hello Ricky,

Thanks for emailing me about the wallpaper. I've had it removed. A checksum of that file has also been put in our database, so if that exact file pops up again it will be removed automatically. We encourage users to submit the author with wallpapers, and even let authors pages have links to their other profiles, such as their DeviantArt profiles. I know it's frustrating finding your own work in places without proper attribution, and I'm sorry that it happened on my website.

Have a good day,



I encourage you check this site yourself for Your Art! Please post any infractions in the comment section so that everyone else that follows this journal will be informed too!  

Thank you for your attention and participation in getting this site cleaned of OUR ART!

I would also encourage you to modify your copyright notification you post with each image you submit! You should make it clear to everyone how you feel about copyright infringement!

In the future I will make a concerted to include this notification below every piece I submit  :


:icondontshareplz-one::icondontshareplz-two:

:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:
COPYRIGHT NOTICE

This image is NOT TO BE POSTED ON ANY OTHER INTERNET SITE FOR DOWNLOAD. You MUST get my permission in writing to post this art on ANY site on the Internet.

This image is for your personal use on your home or office computer ONLY.

This image is not to be changed, added to, cropped, used as a background for your art, or altered in any way unless you make a written request to me and I give you written permission.
