Colors of infinity UPDATEUpdate: Another awesome TV program is Fractals The Hidden DimensionColors of infinity UPDATE2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The old stuff: This evening (27 of May) my Windows XP crashed) That means no more fractals from me until either I fixed the problem or have a new computer built. Lucky I have my mini lap, with Ubuntu, so I have fully access to the net Waiting for more fractals from me, I put a link to an old legendary TV program from the nineties,

In the above TV program (53 minutes), containing many cool fractal animations, Some scientists as Michael Barnsley, and of cause Benoit Mandelbrot himself, explain fractals in a very nice way. I really recommend everyone, and especially

Okay. Unless you're a math geek that's not very helpful...
How about what a gnarl isn't? A gnarl is not a fractal (despite the fact that fractal software programs support the creation of them). While gnarls exhibit some self-similarity, they do not have infinite resolution, nor are they recursive. In other words, unlike a fractal, you can'

You might want to read some comments here for some more little clue and a param.
Have you ever wonder how to create a fractal like this:
Well, those fractals are from two different fractal style, joined togehter into one single apo flame via xaos. a flame become the filler for the plastic bubble style. The first one is juliaN fractal joined with plastic bubble. The second one is mobius gasket inside plastic bubbles. The third one is plastic bubbles inside plastic bubbles. And the last one is julian/ring2 flame inside palstic bubbles.
Worry not. I'm here to tell you the secret The secret is xaos. So, on this journal, i'll write about how to create it. At first, i want to make this explanation as a tutorial. you know, jpeg based tutorial like i ussually do. But after some consideration, i think it's better to just explain it here. The reason is because this trick need s

Mandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic TipsMandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic TipsMandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic Tips6 months ago in Personal More Like This
First thing we'll cover are some tweaking tips. Tweaking, not to be confused with Twerking. Almost everyone does it. It's one of the best ways to learn. This section of the tutorial will cover some of the basics that will hopefully help new MB3D users with tweaking. Just don't let words like iterations, raystep multiplier and stepthwidth limiter scare you off. You don't need to know the math behind these things. Just consider those words as lables to show you where a setting is and you'll do fine. That's what the GUI is for, to make using the program fairly simple. I'm going to use a sample parameter of mine from about 2 1\2 years ago which is a tweak in a long line of tweaks. You will find that I am guilty of a few things that I'm going to cover, so it's a good example.
As always, I like to mention that I am not a tech giant. I really don't know a lot of the technical aspects of Mandelbulb 3D. If you are interested in the technical

No offense my friends if you see one of your images here. I find them all beautifully laid out and colored, and done by talented artists, but I just wanted to speak my mind once again about tweaking and param sharing killing originality. Please try to unchain your creativity by making new stuff!

#149: Spherical Plants!Hello!#149: Spherical Plants!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My journal is not dead. It's just that I don't feel like writing posts at the moment, I'm sorry!
I'd like to spend a few words on my latest tutorial, the Spherical Plants one. You can find it here:
Hell yeah, people, you're making me happy!
Since I've been making fractals, I posted two tutorials: the Flower Fields and the Spherical Plants (the Tweaking Guide doesn't count).
I love how people are reacting to second one, because the results I had the chance to see till now are really worth to see. It looks like almost nobody stopped at the very last step of the guide, but everyone continued on their way, making their fractal unique but leaving a trace of the tutorial's style inside.
So I want to thank you and show some fractals made with the Spherical Plants technique:
A smaller ApophysisHello and waddup guys!A smaller Apophysis2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm writing here because of a poll I made yesterday which you can find here: http://xyrus-02.deviantart.com/journal/poll/4471782/ - and I simply want to take the time to talk to you what the shit I'm talking about
So basically, Apophysis will receive some cleanup cuts. Why? Because Apophysis' code is, frankly said, a monster and almost impossible to maintain. This goes on the account of both, speed and stability. It's simple as that. Any system needs to lose legacy things at some point to remain maintainable. You have to understand that every feature which remains in Apophysis is prone to break with a change. The less maintained the system is, the more likely it breaks.
But what does this mean? First, let me say, I was already assuming that you guys will vote for a sleeker Apophysis (the "yes" option) and so you shall have it. But everything at its time. Now you have to see that the way the fractal community uses Apophysis changed drastically over time. P

Plastics exploitedMy last journal was about plastics. Even though it is not hard to find them, it is hard to find any recent ones. Especially plastics that use some xaos.Plastics exploited1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
So here I am, writing an article about what you could do when creating a plastic.
Therefore this is not a tutorial on how to create them. A tutorial on "How to make Plastics" you can find http://drummerboy08.deviantart.com/art/Apophysis-Spherical-Gems-Tut-158753029
I hope to come up with some plastics, that illustrate how much more can be done, then just creating nice blurred balls.
(I am NOT implying that they do not look good nor that they are be original,I am just showing other ways on how to put everything together).
I am gonna use some xaos graphs.
A triangle means a transform and an arrow means the xaos is not zero. If there is no arrow it is zero.
Now let us start with a plastic that does have blurred balls (more or less).
What happend in the picture ?
The plastic has some gnarly "thing" going on. This is
Regarding CopyrightsIn light of all the problems people are having with other sites taking our fractals and using them as they see fit...i have put together some information...Regarding Copyrights2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The best advice in this post is: If you need legal counsel, then seek it. Don't get it from the internet or this post. Hire professionals who do it for a living, and for the love of god, don't defend yourself in court.
you all know i am not very technical so this is gonna be pretty rough at best but this is what i do if i find my art somewhere i don't want it.......
the first thing i do is contact the person displaying it and advise them all my images are copyright protected and please remove it....
then i wait a few days...
if the image is still there then i send the site an email with this form.....keeping things professional at this point is a must...and just sending an email asking them to remove the image will not work......here is the form i use

I: the creative, intelligent, self-confident, and eclectic,
...am tired of people using the word "we" as if they knowingly speak for the majority.
Now, reading the GFU Manifesto, I won't say that I entirely disagree. I agree that "part of living in the real world is going to be offensive. And, when we are offended, we are brave enough when sufficiently offended, to peacefully and courteously confront that which offends us and try to resolve it on our own; it is our responsibility as human beings to do so."
However, part of our responsibility as human beings is to accept responsibility for wrongdoings. In this case, that would be submitting works to a website that violate the rules that you agreed to abide by whe

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).
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.
