Creating a Beautiful Fractal ImageThere are so many beautiful fractal images in the art world...Creating a Beautiful Fractal Image1 year 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.

Okay, let's talk about that new feature...Hello deviantART. Hello deviantART staff.Okay, let's talk about that new feature...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
No, I am not going to be polite. Fuck you.
I am saying that that because I don't know how else to. Do you know why?
Because dA does only love kids and their parents income.
So, dA has implemented a new feature that lets you search for commissions within certain price ranges. That's great, right?
Not really. Because some solvent-abusing staff member on dA felt like it was a really, really good idea to yet again pander to the kids to squeeze every kind of cheap penny of out them.
You know, it's fine. It's something I would expect from SheezyArt or whatever that piece of shit is called.
So, why am I angry again? It's only been a week since my last outburst, right?
Well, dA has this thing of completely fucking over every update they make.
The system itself is fine. It's great. But I'll tell you what isn't: dA IS ACTIVELY DEVALUING THE PRICE OF ART ON ITS OWN SITE WITH IT.
Now, I might seem all bitter and hateful as usual, bu

dA, you have become a little too broad. When facebook was all the rage, you started on shoehorning social features into the site. When you made MURO, you made a worthless tool that's outclassed by pretty much every art program out there for free.
And as I type this right now, there's no real benefit to having a premium membership, since AdBlock, a RedBubble account and infiniscroll have 90% of the perks covered.
I have a lot of complaints about how you have done things, and the 20% commission fee from your widget is probably the most noticeable one of those, but for now, let's talk about how you can make the premium membership worth it again.

How to really get famous on dA+100 point giveaway!How to really get famous on dA - 100 point giveaway!How to really get famous on dA+100 point giveaway!10 months ago in Personal More Like This
[Giveaway details at the bottom]
So, I have been seeing a lot of these guides, but let's be honest. They are either incredibly, incredibly long-term or simply don't work at all. All of these have points like "comment on things, be yourself, share your awesome", but let's be honest. That doesn't work.
No, I am here to show you how to break the lotus-eater machine behind short-term dA fame. I'll teach you to exploit the systems so dA will have a reason to fix them.
Yeah, I am writing this completely out of my own selfish desire to get dA's popularity system either broken and bended over a snooker table or fixed. So use these exploits while they still work. And I will be using these as means to spread the message. Because the algorithms dA use are borked and easily exploitable.

Development Of Apophysis 3Hello fellow fractalist.Development Of Apophysis 33 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a long time since the official Apophysis was released. The latest official released was Apophysis 2.09 in the year of 2009. Since then, Official Apophysis developer was on a vacum and the development of Apophysis was taken over by Xyrus-02 with his Apophysis7x. It has many feature that original Apo didn't have, such as integration with chaotica, and many bug fixes and tweaks.
But now, the development of the new official Apophysis will be start again with the come back of one of its developer, utak3r. It will be a brand new Apophysis 3! The development is still on the very early state and utak3r need our input about what you want to see on the brand new Apophysis 3.
So, go to utak3r's journal and give him your idea about how the brand new Apophysis 3 should look like.
go go go go!
Plugin pack for Apophysis 7x64 + a little reminderHi guysPlugin pack for Apophysis 7x64 + a little reminder1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Since I obviously don't have anything better to do this fine day, I sat down and made 94 (!) existing plugins for Apophysis readable for the 64-bit-version of Apophysis 7X (commonly known as 7x64) - I'm talking about almost all of the plugins available as source code on SourceForge.net including my own. I just skipped some odd non-standard ones, those which are built-into Apo7x15 and dc_image. I don't know what else is floating around in outer space so if you note me the source code (*.c), I'd convert some more too.
It cost me an imaginary pack of cigarettes and 90% of my remaining sanity. So here is the download link:

Basics of Colour - for Ultra FractalLooking at parameters, both from DA and Ultra Fractal Mailing list I have noticed a lack of understanding as to how colours interact. So I have decided to write a few helpful hints.Basics of Colour - for Ultra Fractal1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1) The Colour Wheel - http://www.colormatters.com/color-and-design/basic-color-theory
All colours can be made from just three. Blue, Red and Yellow - for instance if you mix Blue and Red you get Purple, Red and Yellow make orange etc. Blue Red and Yellow are called primaries. Purple, Green and Orange are called Secondaries and Tertiaries are combinations of two of these

"Stephen was dropped on his head as a baby while his mother was visiting the Museum of Modern Art.
Ever since, he has been drawing, painting and scratching in a non-stop orgy of creation.
His paintings are psychological offerings, rich in irony and distortions, bristling with sublime, psychotropic colours.
Human forms struggle in an existential blending of mind and machine yet up through the conflict a subtle black humour percolates.

In this Fractal in nature article, last time we spoke about snowflakes, which are just macroscopic !
Now let's see something bigger... you know ... like the Earth size!
Earth is round just round there's no fractal in a round !
In fact your right... almost right. Because we'll see fractals on earth from space today !
To quote the article :
Thanks to satellite Landsat 5 in orbit for 29 years, we can discover beautiful pictures of our planet. The device, now put out, was able to capture more than 2.5 million images of the Earth during its 150 000 revolutions of the globe.
What can we see in those 2.5 millions of images ?

Stylish Pixels: the Versatility of Fractal ArtFractals have wide application in the modern world, and can be used for purposes as simple as basic screensavers or as complicated as detailed environment generation in games and movies. While fractals can be used as tools, they also can be used to create beautiful, abstract, and awe-inspiring artwork in a virtually limitless number of ways. This article will attempt to do a quick summary of fractal artwork, from basic applications of fractals in artwork, to a look at the community itself.Stylish Pixels: the Versatility of Fractal Art8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Stylish Pixels: the Versatility of Fractal Art
There are three "categories" that I consider encapsulate fractal art as a whole:
- Fractals as "objects" that can be "photographed."
- Fractals as "brushes" that paint and shape various sections of the fractal.
- Fractals as "paint."

- Add this journal to your list
- Write a journal about this giveaway (Optional).
And the best part? They all average for 200 comments at the end of their life span.
So, what's wrong with this, you may ask? Well. We are talking about TWO HUNDRED PEOPLE BEGGING FOR ONE FUCKING DIGITAL DOLLAR NOT REDEEMABLE OUTSIDE OF DEVIANTART. ONE. FUCKING. DOLLAR.
Did I say that loud enough? One dollar. That's what 100 points are roughly worth.
