Isolating Structures In MB3DHow to clean up your image background ~Isolating Structures In MB3D2 years 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
Tip of the Day: Mental BlindersSometimes you really have to just shut your brain off after making a good decision and just do it. Too many times we find that we know what to do but just don't do it. Today, come to a decision that is something you KNOW is a good one, then put on the mental blinders and just FOCUS on that task.Tip of the Day: Mental Blinders3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think part of what success I've achieved so far has come from being able to focus on one thing for long periods of time like Forrest Gump.

Why I disagree with Kony 2012Many on here and on Facebook have messaged me about the Kony 2012 movie. It's very well-made and definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.Why I disagree with Kony 20123 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Kony is a terrible criminal, and I am very much for bringing him to justice. However, I do not share the enthusiasm of the overwhelming majority about the movie and the proposals put forward by the makers. Here are ten criticisms I came up with, in no particular order.
1) If something is being hyped up all around you, this is a strong signal to think for yourself. Be especially suspicious when someone wants to use FORCE to do GOOD. Paradoxically, if you REALLY care - don't fall for appeal to emotion, as is being done here. Consider the implications and outcomes, rather than the motives. Don't let the public opinion shape yours, let the facts do so. Don't let one issue overshadow other issues which could be more important. Don't be afraid to disagree with the majority. Truth i

This is an encouragement to use POLYFOLD_SYM!
This transform adds a polygonal symmetry to a fractal, of specified order (order should be an integer number normally. Even orders are 100% continue while odd ones have a discontinuity plane... )
Normal PolyFolding did not allowed to choose a shift without breaking continuity instead this allows to do so! Try it.

Collection: Alternative UniverseCollection: Alternative Universe5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
The “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”
Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as sin
Malware Report #5There's a slew of new malware skins uploaded to the main Rainmeter Gallery in the last couple of days. All downloads in the list at the end of this post are infected.Malware Report #54 years ago in Personal More Like This
We try and check all the skins uploaded to our gallery for malware before accepting them and we try to keep this list up-to-date, but real-time interferes, so please practice safe downloading!
Some things to watch for:
- comments are usually disabled or hidden
- they are fairly new to dA, just a couple of new skins
- their profile page only has a few items on it
- they rip a skin/preview/description then upload it with malware or keyloggers
- downloads are zipped and have an .exe file which is the virus
- don't download files like Build.exe, Run.exe, FullInstall.exe, *.rmskin.exe, Full_Set_Up.pif - basically anything that ends in .exe or .pif.
How to test each download for a virus:
- Right-click 'Download File' link, choose 'Copy Link Location'
- Go to VirusTotal at http://www.virustotal.com/index

I was pleasantly surprised to receive my second DD yesterday! The piece was Could Be Trouble. Many, many thanks to DragonWinter for choosing it and the kind words she used to describe it! And of course thanks to all those who took the time to comment and fave the piece!
Are we looking hard enough?
This is more for the beginner who may be discouraged. I was just wanting to offer some input on a few things. In the past few months or so (actually the past year) I've had a bunch of time off from work because the construction industry is so slow. Because of that I have had an extraordinary amount of time to play with fractals. And it is partially due to those circumstances that I have been able to create a lot of nice pieces and also learn MB3D. I'm only saying this because I wanted people to know that while I have an eye for 'finding' interesting things
This is not spam!Hello, everyone!This is not spam!3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
This journal entry is about spam. Or rather, it's about what spam isn't.
According to the help section spam is this:
"What is "spamming"?
Spamming is the act of using deviantART as a means to commercially advertise using journals, deviations comments, forums or notes and is considered an abuse regardless of how or where the advertisements are presented.
Commercial business operations are welcome to advertise on deviantART but only through proper advertising channels as outlined through our advertising contact page located at [link] . Commercial entities creating accounts to advertise for free, will find their accounts closed and their websites potentially blacklisted."
So here is what is not spam:
- comments from people disagreeing with you
- a discussion (even if it's off-topic) between two deviants that happens in your comments

Interview by Naviretlav fractal artist with Xyrus-02 Apophysis 7x software developer from #Aposhack dA chat.
Naviretlav: Will the Apophysis Parameter Locator and the Preview Utility be integrated into the new Version of Apophysis 7X?
Xyrus-02: Apophysis 7X.16 will use the render engine of the Preview Utility. The Apophysis Parameter Locator will remain independent.
Naviretlav: For the Preview Utility, I think more about integration with the clipboard and the ability to show a popup window when there is a new flame in the clipboard while Apophysis is closed.
And what about file previews in Windows Explorer?
Xyrus-02: I don't think so for the first point. The second one seems realistic.
