|Please consider this my huge THANKS for your fav, comment or llama. I value every comment and fav and llama. I rarely have time anymore to add a comment to journals thanking personally although I will sometimes. I used to thank for everything but after leaving and coming back after a couple of months I have a backlog that would take a solid week to clear at least. |
If I haven't commented on a piece I've favourited it's because I've commented on too many pieces and the system is complaining I'm spamming! Sorry!
Now I watch a LOT of people and have a lot of deviations to get through so occasionally I fav and run these days. Otherwise I'd die at my computer.
I'm having fun expressing myself and learning better techniques as well as expanding consciousness. The art I'm currently producing is mostly from lessons I am taking online in Psychic Art - at 'Our Psychic Art' - www.ourpsychicart.com . I am interested in metaphysical subjects, sacred geometry and channeling as well as extraterrestrial and shamanic art. Anything spirit related interests me. I also enjoy reading peoples writing and will perhaps give this a go. I've recently gotten into fractals and have gone fractal nuts. These guys have kept me up into the small hours.|
I'm using all techniques, mainly getting ideas down quickly using crayon or some such and working upon them. I have used watercolour, oil pastel, oils, acrylic, watersoluble pencils, crayons and usually some digital thrown in to edit pieces or digital from scratch. I'll try almost anything!
I am married and have a grown Son.

An Amazing Surf 2 GuidelineMany people went a bit frustrated on not getting anything “cool” from the new Amazing Surf 2 formula recently made by Luca, aka dark-beam :icondark-beam: for Mandelbulb 3D.
If you haven't it in hand you can get it here: http://www.fractalforums.com/mandelbulb-3d/custom-formulas-and-transforms-release-t17106/
Here's a brief indication on how you can get nice patterns out of it without hair pulling
I've assumed that you already put on the first slot the Asurf2 formula.
So, let's change some values:
Min R= 0.1
Rotate1 Z= 8
It would look something like this:
Now go on the Julia tab in the main window or in the 3D navi, as you most prefer, and input the following values:
Now that's it, you're done basicall

Acts of Random Kindness Challenge Complete!Last year I didn't give you all much warning before kicking off my ARK Project effort, which I am going to remedy by posting this now! It's time to brush off those Acts of Random Kindness hats and get out into the community and spread the love. I've changed the rules a bit from last year, but the idea remains the same.
So what's this "ARK Project" thing you're talking about?
It stands for Acts of Random Kindness, which is exactly what I'm challenging you to do. If you want more than that, try this journal!
They dubbed this sort of random act of nice commenting a "remARK", and my end-of-challenge blog will be posted as soon as I can manage after Valentine's Day, and submitted to deviantHEART's remARKs gallery and DeviantART-Smiles' gallery, too. Twelve winners will get features, and depending on how
Fractal WeekHello guys!
I'm calling you again for the Fractal week at projecteducate. We have time until one or two weeks before the Fractal Week starts (23rd of March).
If you're sure and willing to help, please sign up by commenting here.
What do we need?
Any kind of article regarding fractal art (history, features, interviews, trivia, informative articles, etc...);Tutorials and other resources (if there are enough spots, tutorials can be covered in a journal)
The article must be original (must not have been published anywhere else before).
And...that's about it. I will take care of the Intro and the Wrap-up journals and another article, so there are other 11 spots.
Once I get enough replies and partecipation, I will contact you via note and give you further explanation.
Basically, I just want to check who is surely in.
