Everything about Spirals (the ultimate journal)Why is the spiral such a compelling shape?Everything about Spirals (the ultimate journal)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Carl Jung, said that the spiral is an archetypal symbol that represents cosmic force.
The spiral has been associated with the cycles of time, the seasons, the cycle of birth, growth, death, and then rebirth. The cycles of time and nature are the cycles of life.
Some consider the spiral a symbol of the spiritual journey. It is also considered to represent the evolutionary process of learning and growing. It seems that life doesn't proceed in a straight line. The path of life more closely resemble a spiral. We seem to pass the same point over and over again but from a different perspective each time.
The spiral stands for coming into being.
The spiral has found its way into the art of almost all cultures, from ancient primitive rock carvings on all continents to today's corporate logos. They show up in celtic art, native American petroglyphs, Nazca earthworks, Arabic architecture, Japanese rock gardens, Hindu spiritual texts, Australi

A year ago liransz and I collaborated in our work TECHNIFICATION mixing her dark dolls style with my dark cybernetics biomechanicals and we loved the results, we thought that it was so strong and that we should explore a bit more that path, that way born Sugarflesh a therm that mix well the two concepts we want to explore, cuteness/romanticism - dark/biomech.
We would like to find our propper path and that you enjoy our works.
We will still submitting wallpapers of the works periodically, remember to check it out.

My weekend SUCKED! First, Lennon got some bad stomach thing, poor thing was so sick. Second, my master bath tub leaked into my crawlspace, a home owner's worst fear. While the plumber was fixin' the 400$ repair, he found a dead cat in the crawl space, so I had to go down there and bring it out. It was soooo damn sad. So after this weekend I so depressed, discouraged, and feelin' hopeless.
So today when I got on dA and saw all the great things my fellow writers had done up for me, it was like a lifeline. Word can't express my appreciation.
Here is what I'm talkin' 'bout=

3D Camera TrackingToday I learned this. Camera tracking. Basically it is a very simple thing. I select points on the first frame of the video, Blender tries to track those points. After that it sets up a 3D environment for the video. Aaaand it is really good in tracking.3D Camera Tracking2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is my first attempt:
As you can see I used my Sburb logo for this little test. The reason for that it is much better than the Blender monkey head. The low poly count helps me to render it fast. I am really happy with this, one of my best "first attempts".

Have you ever had a beautiful gift which was sent to you by mail and what you found at
your doormat after the postman had delivered it? Well I have!
Today I heard the mail falling at my doormat and I went downstairs. What
did I found? A white hardcover envelop with my name on it and it was sent by
deviantArt. I opened it, I was sooo curious, because I had nothing
ordered. Inside was a beautiful photo and it was the photo from my

and I liked it very much and decided to put it on my wishlist, because
a wishlist is a nice feature. Now I found out that you can use

From Resources to Fractal Art #2From Resources to Fractal Art #23 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome to my new serie : "From Resources to Fractal Art".
What is really interesting in the fractal community, is the way deviants interact between each others to share their knowledge with tutorial or Parameters Pong (Sharing Parameters to tweak the main fractals).
Therefore, in this article I'm going to select a resource randomly and show you how to start from a tutorial to achieve a wonderful fractal.
This week, let's take a look at Fiery-Fire & SaTaNiA tutorial : Splits Elliptic Fractals
We were hanging in the :#aposhack:,ponging some params and then a wonderful idea came to us ! What about explaining this simple technique to the deviants.
When we released this tutorial, we honestly didn't think it was going to be such a loved technique!
Some deviants even says : "It is a elliptic-splits mania on DA"
This tutorial is a step by step o

Mandelbulb3D and to a lesser extent Mandelbulber have been all the rage over the past year or so giving us a whole new way to experience some of our favourite fractal forms
and showing us new realms of fractal pleasure as infinite vistas from alien worlds open up before us.
Mandelbulb3D was brought to us by the tireless work of Jesse and friends over at Fractal Forums http://www.fractalforums.com/ Taurus66, cKleinhuis :iconbib993: along with
the numerous (no pun intended) formulas made by the likes of luca :icondark-beam: and :iconFractKali: . These guys really deserve a whole lot of praise for bringing the world such a brilliant set of tools for free .. yes for free http://www.fractalforums.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=43
