This feature is about starting to learn and it should promote a lot of laughter and amusement (at least I hope,
unless I stepped-over some ego boundaries :lmao:).  In fractal 'world' we have a lot of names which are well
known, established, the images from those 'masters' or 'wizards' leave us in awe and amazement.
But did you ever wonder, how did they do, when they first opened their fractal program ...whatever it was
apo or ultra fractal.
Do you think Platinus made a 20 xform tile design when he opened his apo fisrt few times ;), I bet ya not :lmao:
Do you think Jimpan1973 masked out his shiny marble gems and applied intricate textures .....I don't think so :no:
My point is - we all start as people who pretty much suck :rofl: and yet every image of cloudy bubble or
accidental spiral makes us happy and we do post it right away out of pride (no don't say you didn't, because
I did it myself). After the initial enthusiasm we need some back-up in gaining skills. And that part can take
weeks, then months and then months turn to years.
Nobody becomes Light ( SuicideBySafetyPin ) overnight, nobody makes intricate compositions out of many
traps like Chris ( Velvet--Glove ) in weeks of ultra fractaling. Anything good takes time and devotion and
some love ;)
If you don't believe Me have a look below and you will find that....we all start more less at the same point :nod:
I tell you one thing I learned from this experience is "I feel really dirty" digging thru very old, dusty, forgotten
pieces....many greats must have deleted their first efforts and many keep them in 'special' separate folders -
Zueuk, or Fabers or myself . They symbolize the roots of "suckness" and then progress. And since
I do believe in positive change and evolving, those images are not going to be stored, shamefully hidden
or deleted. This is what I was and now this is what I became :heart:
Happy Fractaling !!! as Travii would say, don't forget to read tutorials and learn, ask questions and foremost
experiment and see if any of your ideas work and turn dry math numbers to those super cool things
we call - Fractals !!!

I chose myself as a first 'victim' to show I have a good sense of humor about my art development :nod:
So here we go, grab a beer and have a look and have a laugh !!! :beer::relax:
