Fractals and MusicFor many artists, art and music go together. Fractalists are no exception. Ask any fractalist if they listen to music while they make fractals, and I suspect well over half the time they will answer in the positive. Personally, I'm a music fiend, and certainly over half the works in my gallery will contain a link to a soundtrack. Many are named after songs, lyrics, or some other aspect of the music I'm listening to. I find that music informs and inspires what I'm working on, either on a subconscious or conscious level. I also experience what I call a mild tactile synaesthesia - sounds, beyond any emotional impact, create physical sensations in me. I experience timbres as textures. Drums dance upon me. Filter sweeps and guitar feedback can be ecstatic... All this affects how I create fractals (and gnarls, for that matter). I strongly encourage anyone who creates fractals to see how music affects them, and how it informs and inspires what they're working on.Fractals and Music2 years ago in Art Features More Like This

between the dark and the daylight....The hot days of summer are early this year. The crickets and the kadydids are singing their song to the beat of the lighting bug's wing. There are smells of hot dogs roasting on the grill and laughter of the children playing in the sprinkler up the street. I heard the sound of an ice cream truck playing "Pop Goes the Weazel" and can't get it out of my mind!! Aww.... childhood!!between the dark and the daylight....3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Children's Hour
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Between the dark and the daylight,
When the night is beginning to lower,
Comes a pause in the day's occupations,
That is known as the Children's Hour.
I hear in the chamber above me
The patter of little feet,
The sound of a door that is opened
And voices soft and sweet.
From my study I see in the lamplight,
Descending the broad hall stair,
Grave Alice, and laughing Allegra,
And Edith with golden hair.
A whisper, and then a silence:
Inspiration Station - silwenkaInspiration Station - silwenkaInspiration Station - silwenka3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Inspiration Station features are the brainchild of our gallery director SuicideBySafetyPin - the idea is that each week lots of people will feature one artist - blanket coverage all over DA. Not only is this good for the artist concerned but it is also good for raising awareness of fractal art in general.
This week's featured artist is silwenka, from Poland.
I've always enjoyed Ewa's fractal art. Her abstract style is quite distinctive with each piece having a certain elegance about it. I have picked out just a few of her deviations for you to take a look at below. I hope you enjoy my choices but do be sure to check out the rest of her gallery as this is really just a small sampling of goodies!
Young Escher, parameters and mapsI dreamed to be Escher, Escher just waking up from a strange dreamYoung Escher, parameters and maps3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
waking up to receive the visit of my good friend Nikolas with a unexpected birthday gift:
a brand new computer , a Babbage Ultimate and he even tell me that he found how to hack it to support the alpha of a new 3d fractal program he is developing
Now if was another i would have tough to a stupid joke, but i know Nikolas too well :
when young Tesla pretend to be able to hack something better don't bet against him
you will know the Babbage computers are a bit heavy, the Nikolas Tesla
hack seems to work well but require much effort , also much physical
effort...luckily we had servants sufficiently robust to power the
details of one of the chips
Nikolas added even something he called "Screen":
a sort of magic lantern but better, with more vivid colors and more resolution .
Xmas FeatureMERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE!Xmas Feature2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For this Christmas holidays I wanted to do something special for all the people who appears in my watchers list, all of you are the reason why I keep coming back to DA, and for you I try to improve my artworks. Thank you!
So I decided to make another special Journal of features, even if some of you never write me a comment, Im happy just for having you on my list.
A clarifying note; unfortunately I can´t put everyone here, mostly because some watchers have changed accounts and they don´t use the old ones anymore, others are deactivated or simply have not been here in a looooong time (a year or more) and most likely they will not return.
Anyway, There are some of the artworks that I picked up, sorry I couldn't search your galleries more deeply more than the surface pages, this was something slow and I have little time.
First of all :iconTehChessie: ; She was kind eno

O-OI swear my mind is one seriously fucked up demented place!O-O2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had a dream I was visiting my dad ,who was suddenly rich for some reason, for my little brothers birthday, which was last month. They had a huge bouncy house that has a swing set inside it! All the kids and teens where all playing inside it. I of coerce couldn't get up from the ground be ing the push over I am and when it was time to go back I stayed behind to catch my breath. I spotted....what looked like a teenage Harley Quinn and a normalish looking teenage boy. He suddenly stabbed a knife threw the side of the head and threw a potion on her. He then said in a hushed tone " Go my monster, create havoc!"
Harley then rushed off into my dad's house and I followed keeping an eye on all that was happening. Harley's face wasn't her face tho O-O. Blade then came to the party and killed Harley and then I found out Blade was my father and he killed my other father and my step mother and adopted my brother.
Bad BoyI'm trying to get back into the swing of posting a journal a day. I really enjoyed interacting with my watchers and even some non-watchers who stumbled onto my profile when I was doing this more regularly. ^^ I'm an introvert, yeah, but I'm outgoing and a social butterfly. Sometimes I just need to isolate myself and stay away from the world. It's nothing against other people, by any means. :3Bad Boy6 months ago in Personal More Like This
To be honest, I don't really have a whole hell of a lot to say right now. I'm just waiting patiently for my Valentine to wake up on his side of the world so we can chat and talk and spend a little much-wanted time together. ^_^
So, since I can't really think of anything to talk about: Give me suggestions! Is there something you want me to discuss on tomorrow's journal? Do you have something you've always wanted to know about me? Drop me a question! c: I only bite when you want me to

This effect is a combination of oil and soap which shows very well how the water flows in the pan. It looks very similar to a fractal animation with waves and gnarls.

pokemon hopes and thoughtsdoes game freak have even more surprises in store for pokemon fans?pokemon hopes and thoughts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I only say this because the three kanto starters all get mega evolutions and the player will be able to pick one of the three during their journey, but blazikin is getting a special distribution date and was seen in the new pokemon xy anime teaser. why is that?
Also game freak shocked a lot of old fans by not only bringing attention back to mewtwo, older generation pokemon via mega evolutions, and the announcement of pokemon the origin. Showing game freak is very much aware of their fans and what some have been asking for and yet they still refuse to make a gen three remake.
but is the emphasis on blazikin in both the games and anime some hint that maybe old characters like May and her blaziken may be returning like she did once before? (since we still don't know exactly where this new region is located) or maybe this could be hinting that they do wish to please their fans with a third gen remake that they didn't want

Random Features #2 Friends updateRandom Features #23 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been adding a few people to my watchlist today, with probably more to come soon. I am so bad at keeping this list up to date, I only manage to update it now and again, sorry! I'm a pretty rubbish friend, really.
Please don't be offended if I seem to have overlooked you but I have a great many watchers and commenters which makes it impractical to reciprocate as I can only watch a certain number of individuals and groups.
Random Feature #2
Time for a few more works from my favourites folder, a mixed bunch of surreal works, sculptures and fractals. I hope you will enjoy my (sometimes strange) choices! Do visit these artists and give them some love.
