Fractal Resource Fridays!!

Mon Aug 22, 2011, 11:35 PM

    A Daily Deviation (DD) is a one-day feature on this page. Each day that page is updated with a new batch of daily features. You can learn more about how a DD is chosen here. If you feel the need to complain about a DD, then you should do it this way, not in a public way that can hurt the featured artist's feelings.

    That's not to say a DD shouldn't be subject to valid critiques, but deconstructive or hurtful criticism is never appreciated by anyone. It is the opposite of what any art community should stand for. It's painful that this part ever needs to be stated.

Fractal Resource Fridays!!

    Does anyone remember Vector Resource Fridays? I was told that this was a good thing for the vector artists in this community, and I'd like to try something similar with Fractal Resource Fridays!

    This means that each week on Friday, the Resource Volunteers and the Fractal Volunteer will give DDs to dA's Fractal Resources artists! I need suggestions for Fractal Resources because I'm not a fractal artist. Fractal Resource Fridays will survive on suggestions from the community. (YOU!)
  • I need some kind of reason to feature your suggestion. I need to add a kind of reason why I'm featuring a DD, and I don't know what to write. I admit that I need lots of help.
  • How long can we keep it up? I believe that the community best responds to DDs if the things we feature are exemplary. I hate to sound strict, but I mean, these fractal resource features should be exceptional and even educational. How long could we keep a steady stream of them each and every Friday?
  • Each month that we complete every Friday with Fractal Resource DDs, The-Aposhack will feature that month's Fractal Resource DDs from each Friday. Would anyone else want to support this project? (Comment below!)
I've discussed this with SuicideBySafetyPin, shelldevil and Dan-Heffer, and we think it should be left up to the community!! Send us your Fractal Resources DD suggestions!

    Here are some ways to have some fun, practice your skills, and maybe even win some prizes! Don't be shy... step right up!

    Really, PLEASE TELL ME about your resources-related events and contests!!

I haven't done many fractals in a while, but if there were useful resources pointed out, I'd get back into doing it more. Right now, most my concentration is going to my 3d renders. And that area could even use some love. I go thru the 3d Models catergory and half the stuff I can't use because I download to find out that it's not compatable [some artists don't say what it's good for] with my program or that it's just a JPG/PNG of a 3d image, that's being offered as stock [which it should then be moved to a stock catergory :| ]. Then the other half, about a quarter or more aren't that great. Some are iffy. Only a handful are OMG!!! :omg: that's sooo awesome!!! Fractal resources are similar and I've given up digging thru those ages ago. So YES!!! PLEASE!!! Give fractals some love!!! And if you are worried about a good supply of resources and running out too soon, maybe think of doing it every other week instead of every week :shrug:

Being a fractal artist myself i definitely like the idea! I must confess though that I'm not using much fractal resources per say, mostly ready apo fractals in artworks (they have such spider web quality and makes excellent sparkles, wings etc in photo-manips) . BUT this is a great idea to promote all the fractal resources that are out there, be it ready fractals, scripts, tutorials etc. So I'd be able to do my part and send in recommendations for the kind of fractal resources I use, and if others do the same for "their user fields" this could work :headbang: :eager:

BTW, should we start sending in the suggestions already? So you can see if there is any interest? And in that case to you or Heff? :D

Interest for Fractal Resource Fridays? Hmmmmmm. Let me think..... ummmmmmm.... YES! :squee:

Thank you for writing this. How sad that there are those who perceive that condemnation is classified as "criticism".
