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!!!

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!

Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals # 15Did you miss the series? I have missed it too, but I thought it would be a good idea to have a break from it until I found some inspiration again. You guys never stop to amaze me, I get new and fresh works, journals and tutorials in my inbox every day, and now I thought I should share it with you. First some news from DA's fractal corner.Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals # 15 in Personal More Like This

Light has challenged Chiara with this one: and I think it's a great idea! It's not like the usual parameter pongs, but a co-operation between two artists with different styles, where the result shows off each artist's style. Just imagine Leichenengel's colourful psychedelic style with :devjimpan73: metallic spirals and shiny gems. Or LeonieZurakowsky's colourful plastic mandelbulb shapes with kr0mat1k's quirky metallic bul
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.

The gravitational pull & density was so strong to condense into a big dwarf exceeding all reality sizes ...and then it suddenly happened the BIG BANG !!
All molecules & fragments of the dwarf got to travel at light speed to different of cosmos, forming new systems, and galaxies.
The seeds of life got scattered into remote places - one of them fell on earth and started to grow The evolution at early stages forming terrains, bodies of
water & atmosphere above the planet surface. And then - everything grew in proportional neverending chains of F R A C T A L S
All this was caring hope for new LIFE - the molecules dancing, splitting,pulling each other closer build the first blocks of DNA (fractalized models, as you can see).

And since fractal art is still in the 'underdog' category getting folks on dA more familiar with it, sounds grand to me.
I would love to get you familiar with few artists - some new, some not so new and a nice mixed-smoothie of fractal works flowing to the gallery on regular bases and that will mean "Fractals that ROCK" is here to stay and give you updates on newest finds and excellent compositions and visions - Enjoy !!

I wanted to thank all the wonderful people that gave me their feedback on my latest journal. I will treasure their words and all the new points of view they shared with me.
First of all, I would like you to check these journals please, your opinion is appreciated :
The purpose of my journal was to admit my guilty lazyness and propose to do better next year. I took the chance to try to make you think if there is something that you could have done but you haven't. I wanted to see if I am the only one to think that we left SuicideBySafetyPin alone to do all the job and coordinate everything for fractal community without providing her support and ideas. She's amazing, but I think we can help her greatly with minimum effort.

I remember that when I started fractaling three years ago that I got comments, faves, watches, support since the very first days I decided to publish my early practicing flames. I remember getting features, joining active groups (at that time the best ones were FractalDreams and ImagersFractalDDs ) participating to many contests. I wonder... is it still like this? How does the new-come fractal artist feel when he/she first tries to join deviantART fractal community?
Maybe it's just my impression, but I think this place has become less welcoming than it used to be, despite

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.

Last Honor for a recently passed away deviantHello there fello friends, watchers and deviants...Last Honor for a recently passed away deviant in Deviant Events More Like This
One week ago was a sad day for the family of :iconkram666: and the deviant community.
He passed away at the age of only 48. Him who was so dedicated to digital art will never leave anyone of us a comment or reply to those given to him. He will never again fill our inboxes with his colorful fractals or cute photos of the foxes.
But even if his body has passed away - he will stay alive within us and within the art in his gallery.
I'm sure that he is somewhere where he can still appreciate our support of his art, so this is my hommage to a wonderful artist AND his family.
With heartfelt condolences,

Halloween over here isn't what Halloween is over there in the US - no
children running around playing Trick or Treat and the Parties are kinda
lame as well, but we still had fun. I dressed up as some kind of Witch

dressed up - but he came in for free since he knew the staff
Anyways - Here I goe with my late Halloween Feature. Please FAV the

Welcome to another edition of The F Word. On this edition, i have an interview with the initiator of Apophysis Challenge, the one and only f--l--A--r--k. Please enjoy my interview with him.
can you please introduce yourself?
I've been around on deviantArt for about 7 years now. My name is Stan and I'm an avid learner and artist. I freelance as a graphic designer and artist and have had the privilege of working on some very cool projects that use my fractal artwork.
What is the first thing that makes you attracted to Fractal Art?
I love the depth of fractals. The unlimited potential really appeals to me. You could take one formula, study it, explore it for years, and still not see absolutely everything there is to see. With all the variables available fractals are a constant discovery.

I'm here to tell you about an upcoming event called "Fractal For Indonesia". So, me and my friend, killythirsk, are organizing a workshop about fractal art, what are they, and how to create them. The workshop will be held on April 7th, 2012 at The Hall of Polytechnic of Bandung, Indonesia.
On the workshop area, there will be an exhibition, showcasing some fractal artworks. Now this is the part where i need your help. One of the mission of the exhibition is to educate the visitors that fractal art is now become a global phenomenon. People all around the world are creating fractal art and it's getting bigger and bigger. So, i need your participation to proof this fractal global phenomenon.

Well, um, as you already know, there was a fractal exhibition and workshop last week here in Indonesia and i was asking you guys to participate. so, i'm here to talk about how's the event going.
First of, it was not as i was expected, in the mean of number of guess that come to the workshop. on the facebook event page, the confirmed participant was around 60 person. But it was only around 10 persons who really come to the workshop. it was not as i expected, but it still good because those 10 persons is really excited about fractal art and want to know more about it.
On the workshop session, killythirsk was explaining about the history of fractals, what is fractal, and fractal in our everyday life. Me, i was doing a tutorial on my session. I show them how to make a grand-julian and julian-rings2 fractal with apophysis. It was very strange and fun at the same time. It feels strange and funny because i have to talk about transform

What is the first thing that makes you attracted to Fractal Art?
First thing attracting me to fractals, was probably the complexity of the images & blazing colors, even without knowing how to make them yet, I did considered them awesome graphics and digital paintings.
I stumbled upon fractal art in early 90's my roomate & myself got a simple software, similar to Fractal Explorer, and we were making some basic animations, the programs were not d

can you please introduce yourself?
I'm a 27 year old application specialist from Canada. I've been making fractal art since 2005.
What is the first thing that makes you attracted to Fractal Art?
When I started making fractals, i was interested in expressing my creativity, but didn't know how to pursue that. Making cool pictures with Apophysis filled that. Also, trying to figure out what Apophysis did in the background really intrigued the analytical/mathematical side of me.
As time has gone on my interest has moved toward the infinite nature of fractals, and working to make more possible with Apophysis.

Have you ever wonder how to create a fractal like this:
Well, those fractals are from two different fractal style, joined togehter into one single apo flame via xaos. a flame become the filler for the plastic bubble style. The first one is juliaN fractal joined with plastic bubble. The second one is mobius gasket inside plastic bubbles. The third one is plastic bubbles inside plastic bubbles. And the last one is julian/ring2 flame inside palstic bubbles.

Hello! Welcome to Project Educate Fractal Week. My mission this week is to try and explain what fractal art is, show you some programs used to create fractal art, and get you totally addicted to it like I am.
What is Fractal Art? i could copy something straight from wikipedia...or get one of my well versed fractal friends to give me a technical answer but....thats just not my style..
I dont really understand the math behind fractal art. I dont want to. I just want the tools to make beautiful images. Platinus once told me a painter doesnt really have to know whats in the paint or how the canvas was made to be able to create beautiful work so I live by those words. If you have been thinking about trying fractals but stopped because you dont know anything about the math requir

Proud Native American RepostFor a subject worked and reworked so often in novels, motion pictures, and television, American Indians remain probably the least understood and most misunderstood Americans of us all.Proud Native American Repost in Personal More Like This
American Indians defy any single description. They were and are far too individualistic. They shared no common language and few common customs. But collectively their history is our history and should be part of our shared and remembered heritage. Yet even their heroes are largely unknown to other Americans, particularly in the eastern states, except perhaps for such figures as Chief Joseph and his Nez Perce warriors of the 1870's, Osceola and his magnificent, betrayed Seminoles of the 1830's, and possibly Sacajawea, and Shoshoni "bird woman" who guided the lost Lewis and Clark expedition through the mountain passes on Montana.
When we forget great contributors to our American history-when we neglect the heroic past of the American Indian-we thereby weaken our
