Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals issue 14The first issue of this year! This time I want to present some of the coolest fractals from 2011, it was really difficult to pick out some faves of the year, you are too good!!! But first, a short resume of last year's happenings.Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals issue 143 years ago in Personal More Like This
What happened last year?
Pretty lot! There have been fractal circles with tweaking fractals around, both in the group :#fractalcircles: and ponging parameters in :#aposhack: , Light SuicideBySafetyPin introduced us for the Inspiration station, the fractal flash mob, a collective feature of different artists. heavenriver has her UF challenge going on http://heavenriver.deviantart.com/journal/Ultra-Fractal-monthly-Challenges-Redux-Vol-12-277027446 and f--l--A--r--k has his Apo challenge http://fav.me/d4l1fc6 and it would be great if we could keep up supporting them! We were catched by :devlindel
FFF series issue 13You wonder what's with the weird title? Yep, I thought I should submit with sta.sh instead of my journal, and of course, it was the famous 30 character limit again. Nevermind, I've heard that it will change soon. I'm back again with the series. And from now on, the series will come out semimonthly instead of each week. It gives me more time to dig up new goodies and collect resources and news. And you'll not be tired of the squirrel and her instant chattering. At least I hope so The fractal artists here never disappoint, it's a constant stream of lovely beauties into the fractal gallery. Let us dive into them, shall we?FFF series issue 133 years ago in Personal More Like This

How did you discover deviantART ?
I have discovered DA by playing with Google like a lot's of deviant here
And fractals, what about fractals ? How did you discover them and start to create them ?
I started with Ultra Fractal about 5 years ago.
I was a bit on Google, and discovered fractals, and it fascinated me enormously, and I started looking for fractal websites.

Blast from the Past, Issue #01Hello again from heavenriver!Blast from the Past, Issue #015 months ago in Art Features More Like This
This new issue, Blast from the Past, is a series of monthly fractal features centered around one particular artist amongst the ones that made the history of fractal art.
Today, we will be having a look at the works of possibly the most popular Fractal Explorer user there is, titiavanbeugen!
This is likely her most famous work, The Dream of a Butterfly, which later became the official logo of the group FractalDreams (and still is to date).
Her technique is simple, and the results are nothing short of amazing: much like Ultra Fractal, all she did was stack FE fractals on top of one another, layering them and combining the results for incredible contrast and lighting.
The imagery is incredibly vivid, and so are the colours. For such a simple program, the result is nothing short of amazing.

The 25 winners of the Benoit Mandelbrot Fractal Art Contest were contacted in mid February to supply large format files of their winning images and also a short bio explaining their interest in fractal art, software used and general information about their work if they chose to do so. We were also informed that the first exhibit would be held in Logroño, in Northern Spain. Javier Barrallo, a Professor of Mathematics at The University of the Basque Country, Spain and also one of the panelists for the BMFAC was our contact for this. The current exhibit will be in the Casa de la Ciencia (House of Science), in Logroño, the Capital city of RIOJA until June 10th. I'll post a few pictures Javier sent further down. Javier also says he will send more pictures soon.
Also when I was contacted in February, Javier informed me that he had written an article about the BMFAC for a Spanish scientific magazine with all the winning images i

Because I'm not only a fractal artist, I'm an art lover... and how do I improve my skill ?

The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!

What is a Fractal?
A Fractal is a digital artwork that is based on parametres and formulas that are based on mathematics(Geometry). The name Fractal comes from the latin words fractus (fractured, refracted) or frangere (to break into pieces).
The one who coined the term of Fractal was Benoît Mandelbrot. He was a Mathematician born on 20th of November 1924 in Warsaw and died on 14th of October 2010 in Cambridge/US. He contributed a lot to the thematic of financial mathematics, theoretical physics and chaos science. But the highest popularity he gained with being the father of Fractals.

Fractal Art is , like name says, Art made from Fractals Too simple? Well You can create a Fractal and call it Art and you can create several Fractals and stick them together and call it Art in either way Fractal Art i

Gallery Browse LimitFor my journal this time around, I'd like to post about something I just found out about. It is called the “Gallery Browse Limit”.Gallery Browse Limit2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Did you know that your Featured Gallery has a limit of 5000 viewable deviations? The dA Help Desk calls this the Gallery Browse Limit. The good news is that it only seems to apply to your Featured Gallery.
Now many of you are probably saying to yourselves, “5000? I'm never going to go over that! What's the big deal?”
The big deal is, in my other account (iSubmit), I have submitted over 8400 deviations. I then looked around dA and I noticed a lot of other accounts were well over 5000 total submissions. Even this account is currently @ 3500 total.
Here's the deal: Unless you change the destination of your submissions, all deviations, by default, go in to your Featured Gallery. I was mortified, because I had not realized this. And for a short time, I thought that oldest 3400 deviations in my other account, were now gone/not viewable.

I don't feel the urge to wrote it because at that time, i don't think that dA is really give a damn care about fractal community. But, right now, a group of people, really draw my attention and made me realize that we, fractal community, is still one of the greatest community here in dA and in many other place.

Yep, you read right folks - the new version of M3D now has the facility to render
volumetric light! This will add a whole new level of potential creativity to what is
already a superb piece of fractal software!
As always, get your free download from FractalForums at: http://www.fractalforums.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=47
In Jesse's own words:
"Not sure if this release is too early, but someone might use it for the FractalForums
contest so here it is....and I need some rest!
Please look at the readme for some explanations for the new volumetric function.
What is new in version 1.8.9:
- Volumetric light option.
- Some issues fixed.
- Changing between relative and absolute light angle for global lights preserves the
- Formula update, some sine approximation adds with more options."
I suspect that we'll be seeing a lot of amazing lighting effects over the next few weeks!

Isolating Structures In MB3DHow to clean up your image background ~Isolating Structures In MB3D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Wow. I haven't done a journal in ages. I thought I would share a little trick for getting a nice clean background when you want to isolate a structure in Mandelbulb 3D. Why? Because sometimes the structures behind the main focus of your image or the main structure are either just small repeats of the main structure, or they are fragmented and in one way or another just not as interesting. Or the background might bury the foreground object in detail or draw attention away from what you really want the viewer to focus on. People strive for a lot of detail, and that's fine, and sometimes it works. But often I find that there's no main focus to frame your point of view. (Edit: I forgot to mention this is made using Mandelbulb 3D version 1.8.2 and I fixed a few typo's!)
Sometimes you're able to focus on the foreground structure through clever use of fog, lights and depth of field settings. Nothing wrong with that either, so this is just another
