I fave loads and loads of fractals (because I like them :iconyoudontsayplz, but there are some that catch my attention more than others.
I think my journal could be an useful tool to promote those fractals that deserve more attention (in my opinion).
Regularly, I'll go to my "Fractaling" and "Ma che bei fiorellini" collections and pick few recenlty faved fractals to show.
If you want to suggest a fractal to be shown, please send me a note!
And by the way, "Ma che bei fiorellini" means "What beautiful little flowers" more or less.

SOME OF THE BEST FRACTAL RESOURCES ON DAThis feature is primarily for Apophysis as well as a few Incendia resources. There will be another feature in the near future specifically for Ultra-Fractal and Incenida.More Like This
In a recent poll I asked my viewers if they when using resources. I was surprised 20% of artists who answered the poll felt they do not need to the awesome resources that have been made available for all to use. So, it really made me take a long hard look at what is available to the apophysis users, and I was totally amazed at what I had found.
Recently, I came across many resources that had well under 100 s and over 1,000 downloads. Does that sound right to you? It sure didn't to me, so I am featuring these awesome artists who provide so many resources for all of us to advance our artform one step further!!! Please note, this is only a very small fraction of the resources available for Apophysis programs!!! Below are just a few of the many resources by artist.

After the first News article, the response of the community was overwhelming. From shock to amazement
to pure laughter - upon finishing the reading and viewing the images.
I do think it takes awhile for some points to sink-in, like being self-critical about your own work, developing sensibility to receive constructive critiques from your friends and other artists (those are still sensitive topics in the community).
I know exactly how it feels to be a 'noob' - enjoyment of creating something, even when it's random and accidental is like a 'drug' - you feel proud, that with a press of a button apo made a colorful swirl
When the initial euphoria of it passes, you start to wonder - how may I improve my skills, since it would be a greater achievement to - intentionally design something, then wait for a 'lucky strike'.

Why Do We Fall?"So we can pick ourselves back up. The world isn't all sunshines and rainbows. It's a very mean and a nasty place. I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. Nobody is going to hit as hard as life. It isn't about how hard you get hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. Pain is temporary, it may last for a minute, for an hour, a day or even a year but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. Something strong. If you quit, that pain will last forever. You have a dream? You have to protect it. If you want something? go get it. You can stay down and get the life kicked out of you, or you can fight your way back into the light. You can climb out of hell. One inch at a time. Don't cry to give up, cry to keep going. Don't cry to quit, your already in pain, your already hurting, keeping going and get a reward for it. You knowMore Like This

A Special Moment.I wanted to share this with you guys because it is by far the most beautiful moment of my life.More Like This
It happens to be the day I flew back. The flight back to England was very long, only because I knew what was waiting on the other side and I couldn't wait to see him again.
When I got off the plane, I don't think I have run faster in my life. I stood in front of the area where the bags were coming out and acted like some kind of idiot really because I was literally pacing around it trying to get my bags out as fast as possible. I borrowed a stranger's phone to call Kurt at that moment because I knew when I crossed those doors, he would be waiting for me on the other side. And when I walked out with my trolley of stuff, there he was. Right in the middle wearing a white t-shirt and a pair of jeans, his arms open wide to grab me, I could see him before I even walked out of the doors at Heathrow. I left my trolley at that point because honestly, I didn't give a damn where it went and in seconds
A personal story about bullyingSILENT BULLYING. When I was in elementary school bulluying started to rise up on the agenda of teachers and parents. I know my parents went to meetings to learn more about what bullying was. They talked about kids getting called names, getting hit and a lot of other things, what they didn't talk about was the silent bullying.More Like This
The bullying with no words, with no actions other than looks, sighs and giggles behind the person's back and some occasional words.
From around third grade to sixth grade I was a victim to silent bullying and no one noticed. Even today people speak about how happy I was as a kid, how imaginative and so on... In my diary at the time it says nothing about being bullied - I didn't understand I was.
I thought I deserved the looks, that they were right when they commented my height, that I was ugly, how I waved my hands around when I talked, how I sat, how I walked and my hair... which was said to be a wig.

I don't care what political views you have, what you believe in, what gender you have or consider yourself to be, what country you're from and definitely not who you love. I care if you're loving, friendly, respecting and happy.
Love is a great thing and shouldn't be restricted or frowned upon.
No matter if you love or want to love someone from your own gender, someone from the opposite or from both camps - I won't judge you. As long as you're happy and loved I will be happy for you.

About Stock (and Typography)Did you know that no matter what gallery you submit to on dA, you HAVE to credit your sources? Hell yes!More Like This
This includes among other things images, textures, brushes, fonts etc., just to name the most commonly used Stock and Resource items.
The Photo Manipulation gallery and community f.e. takes great effort into crediting the materials used for their works and has some shining examples among its submissions, sometimes containing up to 50 seperate sources.
There are lots of great typography deviations that are pretty much Photo Manipulations, as they use a series of materials to create the final artwork.
It does not matter where you get your files from, even if the provider does not require credit, dA does require you to credit your sources.

First off, for clarifications sake, Yes, this limit also includes groups you are watching. Secondly, you may only be able to +watch 5,000 deviants, but you can in turn be +watched by as many deviants as there are on the site. Thirdly, there are really only a handful of deviants (out of hundreds of millions) that watch more than 5,000 deviants. It's more than likely this change won't even affect you.
That said… let's do a bit of math. I know, I know… "grumble, grumble, math sucks". But trust me, it puts this into perspective a bit.
Let's go with the edge case and say that you happen to be watching 5,000 deviants. Let's also say that these deviants post 1 - 2 messages to your message centre a day for a week. That's fairly generous,

While it is only suitable for fairly recent hardware, and works best with a good graphics card with a fast GPU and lots of dedicated RAM, once you meet those requirements, there's nothing else like it. It can be tricky to set it up, but there is a wealth of information online for nearly every distribution of Linux and how to install Compiz and get it working (assuming your distro didn't come with it already installed)
2) KWIN... a slightly more stable alternative to Compiz. It does not have as many effects available, but it does have the most popular ones. It can be a bit more stable and proably uses a little less computer resources than Compiz as well.
3) Cairo-dock... a wonderful, very customizable dock bar that can be used in many ways and
A Comparison of Windows Versus Linux ArchitectureA Basic Comparison of Windows and Linux Atchitecture.More Like This
Note: this is not meant to be an in-depth explanation of either Windows or Linux or their respective architectures. Rather is is meant for people with little knowledge of either, or who only have knowledge of one, to understand why these two are so different (and I admit to some bias in favor of the Linux concepts over the Microsoft one.)
If you know Windows, then you may have a general understanding of most of this information, but even if you are a long time Windows user, you may not know much about the internals of how it works, so this may help you.
Microsoft Windows originated from the DOS operating system. DOS stands for Disk Operating System and was meant as a method for allowing computers to access larger amounts of data than could be easily stored on RAM or ROM chips. Windows grew from DOS as the Graphical User Interface pioneered mainly by Apple became more and more prevalent.
In it's most basic sense, Windows
Wallpapers by RequestSo as most of my watchers have probably noticed, I've been making a bunch of Linux and Manjaro Linux wallpapers with Mandelbulb lately... and from the response, it seems as if a lot of people like them.More Like This
So i was thinking maybe there are some people out there who want a custom wallpaper but either don't want it to say Manjaro, or don't want it to say Linux...
So here's my idea... let me know which design you like from the existing ones and what you'd like it to say (please consider the space requirements of the text... too long a text will either not fit, or make the text too small to really look good) and I can even alter the colors somewhat (maybe, depending) and let me know what size you'd like also...
It can say nearly anything that fits, if you use a different Linux Distro, a specific desktop under Linux (KDE, Gnome, Elightenment, Xfce, anything like that) or even something unrelated (your favorite art program, the Windows logo, your own name... nearly any short piece of text
ALERT! and other stuff...For those of you who may not be aware... it was recently revealed that by accident, a major security hole was found in the OpenSLL programs used by nearly every computer and web server in the world.More Like This
Most websites and servers, businesses and such, have already taken steps to fix this issue, but for us lowly users, there are a couple things we SHOULD be doing...
Number One: Make sure your system is up to date... check your updates manager, package manager or what have you and be sure you have all the latest security updates. If you happen to be using any system which has not yet repaired this flaw, please let the distributers know and request they hurry up and fix it!
Number Two: CHANGE ALL YOUR ONLINE PASSWORDS!!! This is extremely important. All email, social media (Facebook, Twitter, G+, Instagram and such) passwords, sites like here on dA and anything else where you have a password you should change it and change it to something safe and secure.
It is vital that you take care of thes

One thing is, I am sorry that I've been so lax about uploading anything recently, been involved in so many other projects and such, and sometimes also just not feeling the urge to upload anything... I have a few new MB3D renders I should post, if I can get the energy to upload them... maybe I'll upload one or two today.
Second thing... I may be even less on here in the next few weeks and possbly over the whole summer, as I have that summer job coming up. Don't know yet what my hours will be, nor how many days a week and I am not yet sure how tiring the job will end up being... so I may be even less inclined to spend time on art and dA. But I'll do my best to keep up on the art of everyone on my watch list and in my groups...
Finally, once again I find myself blocked by someone for no apparent reason. Someone named IquisitveLexicon who is in a few groups I belong to has blocked me. I don't know why since all

Another project...there are a few reasons I've been less active here on dA recently, and this is the (partially finished) reason, or one of them.More Like This
I've been working on creating my own spin of Manjaro Linux, starting with the Manjaro Openbox Edition and switching Openbox window manager for the Compiz compositing window manager. Once I get all the kinks worked out, I'll be looking into making an ISO file so others can download my customized version.
I also have some other news... I will be working soon, as I got a ummer job, working as a blacksmith in a local amusement park that has an "Americana" display. Mostly I'll be making fake horseshoe souveniers and putting people's names or initials on them. So I may be less active in the future as well, but at least I'll be making some money...
So anyway, here's my current desktop with all these neato effects... can your windows computer do this?
Children Of MadnessMore Like This
Black eyes and bloody lips
Faces always bruised
Broken arms broken hips
We are the children abused
House of darkness and confusion
Souls soaked with sadness
Multiple disorders and multiple contusions
We are the children of madness
Mangled minds and scarred skin
Bodies full of welts
Paying for our so called sins
With whips rods and belts
Malefic words always said
Feeling of disgrace
Sent to bed with a throbbing head
With five fingers across the face
Everything is so distorted
Life is warship gray
Should have been aborted
The to live life this way
Death sweet death
Come stop this constant bleeding
Take away this painful breath
For the grave awaits it's feeding
Children of countless tears
Subject of violence
We suffer through the lonely years
For fears keep our silence
A web of illusions entangles the brain
Depression eats the heart
Hate screams in endless pain
As vengeance pulls sanity apart
