Pre and Post AffinesA short visual guide of the effects of pre and post affine transforms. To illustrate how they work, we will use two examples: tiled Bubble (check out the tile tutorial to learn how to make it: Common Frameworks 1: Tiles) and a single iterator with Square transform.Pre and Post Affines4 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Also, check out the definition of an Affine Transform.
Pre and PostAffines
Both Pre and Post affines work in a similar way, but pre affine is applied before the transforms and post affine is applied after them.
Affine transforms can be used to move, scale, rotate and skew elements of the fractal.
Left, pre affines. Right, a post affine (dotted axes) in the World Editor.

I always mean au revoir, never adieuI haven't slept in three days and I didn't want to change it a bit. so I made a video.I always mean au revoir, never adieu9 months ago in Personal More Like This
- the happiest of goodbyes is au revoir, and the saddest, adieu
- I started walking when I was six months old. a teenage dirtbag thinks it's because I was in such a hurry to start living
- I stopped writing a journal when I lived each moment as it came
today without ever meaning to, i stayed awake
till yesterday slept, till it
stretched and yawned in my arms'
premise. I expected to be shoulders,
chipped vertebrae and silent, gnawed
fingers for assorted pasts,
undressing casts of deja vu but
you see, now is a concept I'm still
struggling with. when I think of the seven hours
my body needs to lay comatose, i find
poetic justice looming, booming
through these chipped finger
tips. I find that my eyes look prettier
when they're on fire and that
the word incandescence can look hazy;

Today, we will chat about L-systems and what they have to do with fractals
In a substitution system, we use a set of rules to transform elements of a sequence. Like this:
Rule [1 → 0 and 0 → 11]
Starting sequence: 01
Step 1: 110
Step 2: 0011
Step 3: 111100
Step 4: 00001111
Step 5: 111111110000
A Lindenmayer system (L-system) is a string rewriting system, a substitution system that works with strings. It consists of an "alphabet" of symbols, rules (which expand symbols into larger strings - in the example above 1 → 0 and 0 → 11), an "axiom" - the starting sequence - and a way to translate the obtai

Fractal in the nature II : Earth viewHi deviants !Fractal in the nature II : Earth view3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
How are you today ?
Did you enjoy your holidays ? Mine was awesome, I just miss deviantART so much
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 ?
A lot's of awesome fractals made by the nature itself !

Death is beautiful.I've been doing a lot of thinking about death lately - about how we treat it like it's something to be avoided - and it dawned on me that that is not true at all. Death is natural. It happens to us all. It's neither good nor bad. Same with life. Life is not a gift. Nor is it a curse. It just is. Death is merely the opposite of life and life is merely the opposite of death, and both are just states of being.Death is beautiful.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There is nothing shameful or weak or ugly about death, or about wanting to die. "To die" is simply to go from one state of being to another. I do not see the selfishness or the cowardice in taking one's own life. No one asks for life in the first place, so what is so bad about someone deciding they don't want it? Why should someone be obligated to live when they simply don't want to?
There are three arguments I consistently see whenever someone says they want to die: 1, "Death is not a solution," 2, "Things will get better," and 3, "You cannot play God." All three are overuse
