Creating a Beautiful Fractal ImageThere are so many beautiful fractal images in the art world...Creating a Beautiful Fractal Image2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
...and the ones here at Deviant Art are no exception! The images are as diverse as each person who creates it. I am a lay-person on the subject when it comes to explaining the art itself. Simply put...fractals are based on Mathematical Equations. The how and the why of this explanation still eludes me, but the beauty of the images keep my creating them. For information about the underlying mathematics check this Wikipedia link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractals
This journal will look at the elements that go into creating a beautiful Fractal Image, rather then the complexity of the base mathematics.

There are many different kinds of fractal generating software out there, just waiting for an artist to create beautiful fractal images.
Many of them are free and some of them even have creators who are members here at Deviant Art!.
There are groups available that are devoted to specific programs....and there are groups that solicit your art no matter which
software you choose to use.
This journal will by no means be exhaustive, or complete....
.....but will give you some idea as to where YOU might like to start on your fractal-creating journey.

Fractal Tutorials and the Heroes Who Made Them...I have been creating Fractals using fractal/flame software for about 2 years now, and have been so grateful for the makers of the Tutorials we learn from.

The Wonderful World of Fractals....and me.The Wonderful World of Fractals....and me.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I will never be able to explain the how and why I love fractal creating with all my heart.
I just know, that when I "found" it here on Deviant Art. I have never stopped looking and
wanting to create fractals that would make others say "WOW"....or "AWESOME".
But I also discovered, thanks the Lord, that creating a fractal, any fractal from any software
is a group activity that involves the creators of the fractal software, as well as looking
at the awesome work of those who have made fractals before us, and
those who write tutorials and give real time advice in :iconthe-ApoShack:
Without all these things and people working together....fractal art would not be the powerhouse it is today.
I say these words from my heart and soul.
Have you thanked a fractalist today?
Below are images from those who I admire and want to be like....or even better than...but I KNOW
I have a long, long way to go.

This may seem a little cliche' for this time of year, but there are so many beautiful wintry fractals circulating around the community that it was too tempting. Snowflakes and frost are quintessential examples of natural fractals, so it's no mistake that fractal programs are good tools for rendering their beautiful forms.
