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.

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.
Tips for the creative photographer #2I´m by no means saying I am any expert, but I hope some of this might prove beneficial.Tips for the creative photographer #22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Screw the rules
It is very good to know and be aware of composition, correct exposure, to compensate or not to, but it does sometimes mess with your own creative approach.
The camera and lens is plastic, metal and glass and just tools for you to use, they should be treated as such.
A good thing is to get that perfectly exposed and composed shot out of the way and then just flip to a new page.
Try for instance to take a picture of something with the sun behind it and completely blow the whites out leaving the subject correctly exposed without the use of a flash, it might just be the shot you choose instead of the "correct" one.
Absolutely no harm in using other tools than just the camera and a tripod, people have gotten cover shots of eagles diving in the water for food the photographer has brought and thrown there as bait.

March Madness Mini-Teaser !MINI-TEASER ...March 2015March Madness Mini-Teaser !7 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...
here are a couple of examples by :iconPaMonk: by :iconbatjorge:

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.

Changes.Well, the time has come for it to be done and although I don't want to I think I have to.Changes.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Given the recent uprising and being informed of art theft on other websites it's time to start putting an opaque watermark on my work somewhere.
Places like Facebook tend to blur and distort images when you re-upload them and therefore most of the time transparent/semi-transparent watermarks get warped and invisible... I'm not comfortable with that.
Some people may not care but I do, more so when it's commissioned pieces that these people are taking and using for RP characters, which is what about 90% of the stolen/altered pieces were in these last few incidents.
Look, I don't mind people sharing my work, posting it other places to show it to others, but credit must be given and the image CANNOT be altered in anyway from it's original state.
This is something people don't seem to get... mostly the 'credit must be given' part.

Commissions - Paypal/USD and PointsAnyone who orders will be kept on a spreadsheet document in Microsoft Excel, stating your name, how much you paid, what type of commission you ordered, and the link of your commission. So do not fret, I will keep a history of my commissioners.Commissions - Paypal/USD and Points3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I take payments for USD, Deviantart points, and even a combination of payments, so keep that in mind as well.
I will watermark the commissions (it's not obnoxious) until payment is given at the end. I ask that you pay me when I'm done, and then I will remove the watermark and you will happily receive your art in all its glory! This way you have no reason to worry about me running off with money, and I have no reason to worry about disappearing commissioners either.
I'll show you each step (sketch, flat colors, shading, etc.) and along the way, please let me know of any changes that must be made.
You can cancel safely without paying during the sketch phase, but if you cancel out on any further steps, you may have to pay either the full price or so

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.

Paint OverThere’s a lot of bullshit out there, now more than ever, since the advent of crit-centric Facebook groups for artists. Bad advice is everywhere these days, and it serves as an entry-barrier, confusing and obstructing anyone looking to break-in. Where’s it all coming from, and what can we do about it? How can we preserve our new-found sense of community without incidentally cultivating the bullshit?Paint Over2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In my experience, bullshit critique is never malicious, and in the rare case that it is, you have my permission to write it off as trolling. No, as I see it there are really only two types of bullshit – I’m going to call the first typical bullshit, because we’re all familiar with it; typical bullshit is what happens when amateur artists waste time critiquing each other instead of studying. It’s much more common than benevolent bullshit, which is what happens when good artists fail to communicate. Benevolent bullshit sucks for so many reasons,
