So what's new?
Sun, sand, and most especially...surfing! Well, at least for the next three weeks! I've rec'd my final grades for this semester's classes and I'm very proud to say that I passed each class with flying colors!
Participating in the Round Robin IV challenge has been a blast and I really enjoyed creating the marble fractal design; which I've never done before. And after viewing the final results of the other participants, it's inspired me to continue to to improve my rendering skills for that particular design. And I really look forward to the next round.
is hosting a fractal "Tweak-A-Thon". For more information, pay a visit to her user page and check out her journal; which says what it's all about.
And finally, the new Weekly Art Feature is up and it features the fantastic works of art by a wonderful friend of mine and a very talented artist; Xantipa2
and it's my way of saying thank you to her for her friendship and support. Go have a look! You won't be disappointed!
That's all for now. Have a great week!
----------------------- For those that have commented, faved, or otherwise added me to their DevWatch; a most sincere thank you. It is truly appreciated as are you for doing so.
Weekly Art Feature
This week's Art Feature showcases the fascinating and incredible artwork of a very wonderful fractal artist, Xantipa2
. She uses the many fractal rendering programs of Apophysis, Fractal Explorer, Ultra Fractal, Incendia/Xenodream, and Sterlingware. Eva also does fractal and photo manipulation as well. I have always been fascinated with the almost unique designs of Eva's artwork. Take a look below and see what I mean!
And to see more of her incredible art, please pay a visit to her wonderful gallery! Fascination with Diversity

Q&A About My Artwork
I've decided to add this section to my journal, because I feel it necessary to do so. And these are subject to change at anytime.
1. What program(s) do you use to create your artwork?-I use a fractal rendering program called "Apophysis". The latest version is Beta v.2.08.
2. Can I feature your artwork in my journal/news article?-Yep. Go right ahead. (As long as your journal/article is here only on the DA website.)
3. Can I use your art as a desktop background for my computer?-Not really. While I'm honored and flattered, I'd rather you ask me about that first or explain why. Send me a note, but no guarantee on a positive answer.
4. Can I display/use your artwork on/for my own website?-Absolutely not. My artwork is strictly displayed on DA; no other website has my permission to feature my artwork! Period.
5. Can I use your art/designs as a basis for creating my own?-No. It's better if you create your own designs through your own learning experience.
6. Can I use your artworks/designs in photo manipulations or other types of manipulation?-No. I'd really prefer if you didn't. You can ask me or explain why you want to do so, but I can't guarantee you a positive answer.
7. Do you do commissions/prints/tutorials/kiriban?-Nope. Not at this time.
