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.
Sending positive vibes to you all!
Tip of the Day: Enjoy the processToday, concentrate on enjoying the process of art more than the result, you will become more productive. Put on some music or have a drink or whatever you can do to relax a bit and enjoy the process of doing art!Tip of the Day: Enjoy the process3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Unlike my version Jesse listened to my praises and added a separate slider for transparency so yes, you can add a reflective AND refractive sphere in the SAME image now
PLUS you can enable reflects on DIFS only for a best effect! Incredible!

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.

Group Journal Comment Messages for Admins

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

So, in 6 days it will be Valentine's Day! All the love shared around...aaaaaaah, how awesome?
But we're not talking about romantic love, no. We can extend this concept to art and the love we share about it.

In seeking to improve my images, I thought to remind myself of resources I've used in the past as well as ones I scoped out more recently via google. I also wanted to give back and to pass on this information to other artists.
Check out some of these resources. Some of them are for 'painters' and some for digital artists and designers. All of them will provide you some useful ideas - things you may have even studied before and forgotten!
Please add your own resources, thoughts and ideas and pass it on! Feel free to copy and paste or share - though with my name would be nice! hehe

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
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

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.
Naviretlav: Can we expect the new version during the next two months?
Xyrus-02: I cannot tell that. I have a life, still So let's just say "when it's done" - as always. You can monitor the progress using the

He managed to get some wolves into possession and carefully put them together to have cubs. Neither Jeans nor genes were known at his time, but Phillip did know that children looked different from their parents and also exhibited different personalities. Maybe the wolves would eventually have an offspring that his tribe could use.
Genes are the blueprints of a being, how it is shaped, how it grows and in many ways even how it behaves. But these blueprints don't copy perfectly. There are small alterations, changes, and so a new animal would always be slightly different from the animals that came before. Perhaps it would have the tendency to be more playful, or it may be better at sniffing, or it may be friendlier towards other beings, such as Phillip himself.
deviantPOINTS: An updateOver the past few months we’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the way that members in our community have been offering points as payment for certain types of services within deviantART. We’ve seen all sorts of creative uses, from offering to critique your work for a few points, journal features for a few more points and my personal fav -- avatars, journal skins and any other sort of art commission for points. It’s been great to see deviants use their experience and skills to fund their super group upgrades, prints purchases and even treating their friends and families to their very first item of deviantWEAR.deviantPOINTS: An update4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Collection: Alternative UniverseCollection: Alternative Universe8 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
