1950 - Laposky's Oscilon
Our story begins in 1950 with Benjamin Francis Laposky, a sign painter and army veteran who was also an artist and mathematician. In addition to getting a kick out of creating Magic Square Puzzles, Ben created what is arguably the first set of computer generated images, "electrical compositions" using a cathode ray oscilloscope:

From Resources to Fractal Art #1Hi deviants !From Resources to Fractal Art #13 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Welcome to my new series : "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 lindelokse tutorial : Apophysis 3D Blooms Tutorial
This tutorial is an evolution of her first tutorial about 2D blooms.
Since Chiara explained us how to create bloom a lot of deviants tweaked and had fun with this technique!
Here's a lil' sample of what you can find in this category !
Loki the Norse god: Greater than you thinkWho is Loki?Loki the Norse god: Greater than you think2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In modern popular culture Loki icon is mostly known for Marvel's Thor and Avengers villain who was basically adopted from the Norse mythology. Those who read Norse myth and folklore know that Loki is the god of fire, also known as the trickster. But initially Loki was more than just a trickster figure in Norse mythology and religion. Ages ago, far back before Middle-ages and Christianization of Northern Europe, he was much important deity: sacred and mystic, one of the All-fathers and creators of the universe.
Going over Wikipedia articles is scrapping only the tip of the iceberg (To get the depth of ancient knowledge one should have a keen insight and broad logical thinking without personal preferences and tastes). Unfortunately the information on Loki is comprised of a relatively small amount of literary material. Having Poetic Edda and Prose Edda, a few other works related to Norse mythology and also some dissertations on Loki, I wish that more information surviv

HELP STOP SOPANormally I wouldn't make journal entries without SolKorra's permission, however, this is important.HELP STOP SOPA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Stop SOPA. SOPA stands for Stop Online Piracy Acts. In this case, all fanart will be deleted, all fan-pages, fanfics, fan made videos, etc.
THIS MEANS NO MORE FAN ART. NO MORE FANFICTION. EVERYTHING WILL BE DELETED AND OUR FANDOMS WILL COLLAPSE.
Please sign this petition to help stop SOPA!
I don't know about you, but fandoms got me into art, so if they stop us from drawing work like this, my reason for drawing ceases to exist.
I don't understand why they would do this anyway; I mean, it's free advertising for the creators of these fandoms so...? I'm sure they would be against it too, right?? XD
Chick fil a... Never going there againSo me, Jordan, and Robby went to the mall today, right? And a little resteraunt called 'Chick-fil-a' was holding a protest.Chick fil a... Never going there again3 years ago in Personal More Like This
An ANTI GAY PROTEST!!!
WHAT THE FUCK! DO they not realize that they will fucking support war but not love? Why can't gays, bis, act have the same rights as us?
Yeah, in the Bible it DOES say that a man should not sleep with another man as he would a woman, but damn guys, doesn't God love everyone? No matter what?
For instance, prostitutes, lepers, sinners, ect God welcomes everyone no matter what the cost. These people, the ones signing up for anti-gay shit, they don't seem to realize how much they are hurting this world. And not some silly protest is going to make all the proud gays, lesbians, and bis 'disappear'. Really.
'Make love, not war.' That's EXACTLY what I'm trying to say here!
*sigh* I don't know guys. It's just bugging me that so many oh-so 'Christians' would do this.
Just look at this picture:
RE: 'Sexism against men'Interestingly, certain people keep bringing up the same points, again and again, in an attempt to demonstrate that men suffer from sexism more than women. Every one of their points, however, only work against their own "anti-feminism" stance. LET'S FIND OUT HOW!RE: 'Sexism against men'4 months ago in Personal More Like This
"Men are 97% of combat deaths" - this claim is true, but apparently, but nobody who points it out is willing to mention that the military simply refused to deploy most women to direct combat up until just last year. The actual reason men are thrust into combat the most is because of obsolete, sexist values left over from a time when women weren't even allowed to train for combat at all. Women did not ask to be left out of the fighting. Men left them out of it. This is, therefore, an example of men getting killed by misogynistic ideals.
"Men are the majority of industrial deaths" - also true, but again

So with the ever approaching doom and somewhat hyped Black Ops 2 there has been indication of a SPANKING NEW ZOMBIE SAGA, with little sign of the original drunken, crazy bastards from the Nazi Zombies team.
So in celebration and fateful, melancholic departure (if that is the case) of our most overly loved and batshit bonkers insane Doctor, :iconCarnivorousTwinkie: and I are doing a RICHTOFEN JULY!

For every day of July a single drawing or doodle will be done in hopes to revitalise and revamp the fandom.
You can join in to!!
All we ask is draw a Richtofen every day or so (the other characters can be included to!) and then submit it. Make sure to date your art so we can have a calendar fun filled absurdity with it!

Soft-tissue shockers!All your dinosaurs are wrong.Soft-tissue shockers!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I mean ALL of them. Every few years we hear of x revision or y development in how artists "need" to restore dinosaurs, as new information is discovered. Some of it valid scientific data, the rest over-hyped happenstance. We've seen relatively valid changes to dinosaurs' appearance in the last few decades (such as light feathers on coelurosaur-line theropods and deep skin folds on the shoulders of duckbills) to unexplained and largely unwarranted innovations (like GSP's overly thickened "bison necks" on his duckbills and tropical raptors seemingly drowning in a 60kg pile of big clumsy turkey feathers) to downright inexplicable bandwagon flip-flops based on whatever paper gets more press coverage on dumbed-down "mainstream" media (such as the rapid bounce-back of many ignorant copycat artists not worth naming, in the practice of changing many sauropod necks from horizontal (copying after Alexander) to vertical (after Bakker and GSP) to horizontal (after Stev

It can be from any country you like, or books or movies as long as it is real, not invented by you. I leave some awesome sites to take a look for stories. Have fun!
