Congrats to you all
..I started to write a lot of fine words and blahblah..
....but I'm too overwhelmed by your love and I'm still speechless

it, for sure, would have been a better world...so this poem is for you guys..
It Doesn't Seem Enough .
I want to tell you "Thank you,"
But it doesn't seem enough.
Words don't seem sufficient--
"Blah, blah" and all that stuff.

Very sad news to all of Marks friends. (Kram666)I visited Marks homepage and discovered this message left by his brother.Very sad news to all of Marks friends. (Kram666)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"This is Simon, Mark's brother, with the terribly sad news that Mark passed away last week.
This was a huge shock to us all.
I helped him set up his PC with all his drawing tools so knew how much he adored producing his bespoke digital artwork and how much the Deviant art community meant to him.
On his behalf I'd like to thank you all for the friendship and support you've shown and would ask you to pause for a minute at 14:20 on Monday 1st October. (British Summer Time)
With Kind Regards.
As Mark often quoted.
"I felt the call of the jungle, primal and clean.
I felt my connections to the wild in every cell in my body;
realized that I am among the trees,
the plants, the grass, the sky. The trees know
The Wonderful World of Fractals....and me.The Wonderful World of Fractals....and me.10 months 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.
I NEED HELPERSedit. Added more details in the explanationI NEED HELPERS4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Be patient and read everything. Tell me if sthg remains unclear as soon as you can.
I am looking for a set of new sample params that will be included with the next Mb3d x2, that will be a formula update + a param update.
You CAN CONTRIBUTE AND YOUR NICK will be in the param name.
Resulting images must be elegant, incisive and clean, with a stepwidth of 0.5 to min 0.3! I will be very exigent with those requirements! Sample images are examples of elegance in my eyes.
no decombines. (ALTERNATE MODE each formula can have any number of iterations 1 to 20, leave maxiter to 60 as it's fast to render). And no weird looking images. Remember the elegance rule, fractals are not random
Use neutral colors. That means; not full hue ones, prefer those more grey-ish, in general. You always can use coloured lights (just not use all the colors in the spectrum at once if possible) - and you can use dynamic fog also AND any other option in postpr

About helping othersIt has recently come to my attention that some people just don't know how to respond to requests from others for help. I have always offered help to those I can when asked. I've never ignored a request for help. I do ask that a question is specific in nature. But overall, I answer every question I can to the best of my abilities.About helping others3 months ago in Personal More Like This
So if you're going to act like you know something, and answer questions from people, you had better be prepared to answer a bunch of questions and have a bit of patience. Many times one question leads to another, and another after that. Or once you help with one question, that person may then turn to you and ask different questions. So be prepared for that. If someone is asking you for advice, they obviously think you have more knowledge that might help them. If you can't take the time for follow up questions, or just don't want to be bothered by questions that you 'think' are too obvious or simple for you to respond to, then you have no business helping someo
March Madness Mini-Teaser !MINI-TEASER ...March 2015March Madness Mini-Teaser !3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just to get you all back into the mood for MB3D teasers we are having a mini teaser just for fun.
:icondark-beam: has been real busy developing heaps of new formulas for us to work with and explore so I think we should be focusing on this output for the next wee while.
For this months mini-teaser we will take ASurfSmoothFold as our formula and use it and it alone to create a stunning fractal.. (this is basically a smooth Abox turned into a smooth Asurf with some nice rotations)
You can use maps/background images etc just as long as the ASurfSmooth is the main part of the image...

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.

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.

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.

Luca's Formula and Parameter Update For MB3DNote: Added second image.Luca's Formula and Parameter Update For MB3D4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Luca, aka dark-beam , is asking for some help. In his journal here ----> I NEED HELPERS , he asks that some adventurous MB3D artists create some parameters to be included in a formula and parameter update for MB3D. He has a few requirements listed so be sure to visit the journal and check it out!
Here's a peek at one image I made following one of his suggested parameters. Maybe I'll get lucky
Fractorium - OpenCL GPU Based Fractal GeneratorOk ladies and gentlemen, I don't know how many of you have head about Fractorium but it's a OpenCL GPU Based Fractal Generator that allows you to create fractals in real time. Most of you know that I use Fractron 9000 because it's super fast; but Fractorium leaves it in the dust, that's how fast this fractal generator is.Fractorium - OpenCL GPU Based Fractal Generator1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It supports a user interface that many of you are use to, as many of you have used Apophysis for your fractal generation. It supports over hundred functions, a color palette similar to APO, mouse and manual control of numerical adjustments as well as the clickable adjustment your familiar with.
If you've been held back on exploring fractals before due to the slow speed of the CPU, that time has now passed.
Fractorium works under 64bit Windows and with an graphics card that supports OpenCL; which means most any of the graphics cards produce over the past 4 years.
Give it a try and let Matt know what you think of his creation.
I know I'll be switching over n

About The Group (For New People)This is a little explanation about the group's name for people who may ask why it's "Unwanted"About The Group (For New People)3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Ok, so a rewrite of this. I've decided not to change the name of the group from many people's reasons and very detailed explanations on their opinion. So it's going to remain Unwanted-Deviants.
For New People: So many of you are probably very angry or confused on the groups intentions. The summary of this group is: This group is to get people's art out there into a bigger group of people so that they can get noticed and get the attention they need to continue their art career.
