Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!The King- Louis XIV as the Gardens of Versailles -The Queen- Maria Theresa while wearing The Hall of Mir

Formula explosions and strange surreal inspirators Another crazy fractal year is soon coming to an end. Last year I did a summary of the first year of the Mandelbulb: http://MANDELWERK.deviantart.com/journal/One-year-with-the-mandelbulbs-amp-boxes-222129475At that point not many knew about the mandelbulb, the mandelbox or the hybrid 3D fractals here on DA (My images was sometimes rejected for not being fractals from some fractal groups on DA.) . This year it has all exploded and I just love it. Along came DarkBeam/LucaGN http://lucagn.deviantart.com/ with all his crazy add-on formulas. And everything just went HAVOC.This years summary (a bit early, because of my Premium membership ending very soon) will be about the inspiration I got from the worlds I have exploited . They really awoke the slumbering, but strong surreal part of my soul. I did a lot of surreal oil paintings when I was younger, and I might get back to painting some day when I have some more time...When I find a new interesting shape I get ins

One year with the mandelbulbs and boxes One year with the mandelbulbs & boxes on DAOne DD, 12000+ Pageviews, almost 3000 nice comments from you!At the start DA was only a place to put up high resolution images of the renders I had done of the mandelbulb to show them for the people at fractalforums.com http://www.fractalforums.com.After that DA has more and more become the home for me and my fractal images.This year has been totally crazy, the mandelbulb had been discovered by Daniel White & co. http://www.skytopia.com/project/fractal/mandelbulb.html http://www.bugman123.com/ http://www.fractalforums.com/the-3d-mandelbulb/ late last year, I started exploring the bulb with Subblues pixelbender script: http://www.subblue.com/blog/2009/12/13/mandelbulb

Frequently Asked QuestionsWHAT TOOLS DO YOU USE TO WORK?Canson Montval or Bristol paper 300gsm, 0.3 mechanical pencil + graffiti 0.3 mm B, pencils 2B and 6B, and kneaded rubber.Disposable ink pens 0.05, 0.1 and 0.8. French curve set, 40cm ruler. Light table. Crow quill nibs. Acrylic black ink.The brushes I use to ink, the one format I do like is a round liner (Fine Liner Sable 2/0 302). There are many formats but particularly I like that one because it is perfect for contouring, outlining and for doing fine details, it keeps the trace steady and straight, and many people like to use it for signatures.But I think the tools should be tested and chosen individually by each person. If you don't work well with nibs then try pens. If you don't like mechanical pencils then use regular pencils. Don't try to get the same tools that your favorite artist uses, thinking you're going to be able to make it just like them because those tools work for them. It's t

A quick update on my absenceHello DAers!My long absence due to multiple projects (and teaching, and graduate school) is probably a month away from coming to an end. I apologies for those who sent me IMs and didn't hear back, sometimes for months. If there is a rush it's almost always better to contact me through my website contact form, as I'll see that right away.Also, I should have lots of fun skeletals to show off in the coming months (and years) thanks in part to the work I put in over the last 9 months. I look forward to chatting with you all again in a few weeks!-Scott
