|Another DD for 2018, thanks all|
I'll be back....Owing to some recent health issues - nothing life-threatening I should add! - and other domestic matters,
I haven't posted anything here for quite some time.
I'm happy to say that things are now looking much better, and I should be back 'in the zone' again fairly soon!
So please watch this space folks....
About Fractal substitution tilesFractal Art Weekend
Suggested prior knowledge:
Know how to use Apophysis or Chaotica (fractal editor software)
Know some IFS tiling basics (strongly suggested: rep-tiles tutorial ~by tatasz)
Some examples of fractal tiles
Just so you know what I will be talking about.

Hidden Fractalist Vol. XXVIII.
Hello everybody and welcome to my project called Hidden Fractalist! Goal of this project is to discover new, rising fractal artists in the depths of the fractal art community and bring them into the spotlight between other fellow artists and show them some love, help, support and friendship. My guest for today is waste-and-tragedy! Fred has been member of the DeviantArt for 7 years and if you haven't checked out his gallery yet, you definitely owe to yourself, it holds variety of different fractals, made with various programs! Let's proceed with the interview!
Hello and welcome to the Hidden Fractalist interview waste-and-tragedy! Could you please kindly introduce yourself to us?
Hello, my name is Fred and I am 50 years old. I live in a small town in the province of Saskatchewan in western Canada. In case you may be wondering, my DA name "waste-and-tragedy" is a literary reference from one of my favorite bo
A quick note to let you know in case you were wondering:
Life demands that I stay away from DA. I am well, just very busy and focussing on other areas than fractals or any other computer-related hobbies.
I hope you are well, peace and love to you all
(Quick) Guide to Fractal ResourcesGallery Descriptions & Miscats Month
Hello everyone! I'm C-91 and today I'll be helping Mocris (your current Resources & Stock Images Community Volunteer) cover the topic of Fractal Resources.
Any person who wants to have a go at Fractal Art (check my article on the subject here) needs to know what the tools of the trade are, how they work and what they can do, and have a general knowledge about the add-ons. DA has plenty of these resources, located in dedicated galleries. The main subcategories are:
Resources and Stock Images:Tutorials > Application Reference > ApophysisTutorials > Fractal TutorialsFractal Resources > GradientsFractal Resources > Parameter PacksFractal Resources > Plug-insFractal Resources > Scripts
I'll be explaining in detail what belongs in these galleries, providing you with basic notions about fractal programs where needed.
Guess who's backYes, after almost two years I'm back again as Community Volunteer for the Fractal Art gallery. I'm super excited!
I'll post new DD guidelines soon. For now, go hunt for some good fractals and show them to me!
Take a look at my previous features: https://c-91.deviantart.com/favourites/62277222/Featured-DDs-2014-2016
Hope to hear from you soon! (and you'll hear from me with a better journal, for sure )
5000Hi everyone ! I every day there are friends who add me to your friends list. Unfortunately I can't make it mutual . I can't add new friends as well as you me . It's payback for my 10 year old activity here on your favorite site .
When I want to add , I get this message
And don't know what to do , I can't delete my old friends and I also can't add new ones.
JosKN-ModIFS OptionsLet's face it, no one can understand Luca's binary system of JosKN options.
That's fine with the 'limited' options of the vanilla formula, but with the new mod, Added JosKn-ModIFS!!!, situation has become intolerable.
Fortunately, using some advanced deep learning methods, I think I've cracked it
For example, when you set 'Options=0' in the JosKn-ModIFS formula tab, you get the normal pillar hall view,
and Options=4 shows the whole set using inversion. Generally, the more you increase the Options number,
the more experimental features are unlocked, and the following list shows which.
3: 4gen balls
5: 4gen inverted
6: balls inverted
7: 4gen balls inverted
9: 4gen boxFold
10: balls boxFold
11: 4gen balls boxFold
12: inverted boxFold
13: 4gen inverted boxFold
Math and Programming for Fractal ArtistsArtist's Toolbox
Math and programming may look as scary subjects sometimes, but it is quite a useful tool when you are creating algorithmic art. After all, it is algorithic art
Understanding how your favourite software works
Of course, you do not need to be able to create a brand new fancy perfect fractal software from blank Still, some basic knowledge of how things work may be useful. Understanding the math behind a formula or a transformation can help you to find some cooler settings for it, or combine it sucessfully with other things. Being able to read some code usually helps, since there are very few tutorials and explanations on how things actually work (and not "add this, and then more around those sliders).
Creating your own custom plugins / formulas
Sometimes, the existing things just don't do what you want. It could be just a tiny little change in a formula. With some basic programmi
