There is a critique event happening Friday the 12th @ 1:00 P.M. CDT in The Aposhack.
An update.Hi! Well first off I am mutequacky. Just wanted to leave you with a friendly reminder that all fractals submitted to this group need to have parameters included. Also, I renamed the Tutorial folder to Fractal Resources (For scripts, tutorials, plugins, and also parameter packs. With that said, happy fractaling!!

Martha's Apophysis project - your input needed!marthig has a great Apophysis project going on and she'd like the help of some fellow apoholics!
From her journal...
The f--l--A--r--k ApoChallenges will soon reach the 100th Challenge.
Stan asked to all the participants, to bring some ideas to celebrate that "milestone"
My suggestion is sort of a personal project but
I will need help from all of the Apophysis "experts".
It would be to make some sort of Manual for those new "ApoAddicts" describing what some of the most used plugins do and where or in what type of flame or together with which other plugin they can be more successfully used. I mean those in the first (white) part and those in the Blue part of the "variations" tab
What I mean by this ? An example, from my most superficial knowledge of Apophysis would be:
"linear" is great for doing tiles and/or spirals
"julian" is just fabulous and you can make beautiful structures varying the "power" and "d
hi!i know it's been awhile since we updated this part....i want to thank you so much for submitting all the wonderful params to our little group here! you guys are the best!
DothackerDaichiI'm sure a lot of you have noticed that a very prominent and beloved member of the fractal community has been banned recently.
I'm not going to go into details here, because it's not the place. BUT. If you would like to help out OutsideFate , this is what you can do!
Send FarDareisMai a note with a list of contributions that he made to the fractal community or visit the :#aposhack: chat room and tell us anything you love about him. The more people send them in, the better this will be. It doesn't have to be a huge thing either, personal stories and "testimonials" are great. Even if it is just something like "We had a param pong once and it was a lot of fun" that is AWESOME.
Hi! and a thank you!Hi! i just wanted to say thank you for all the amazing params you guys are posting....it's wonderful!!!
i have been going over some of my old params lately and my question to you is this: Are there any specific types of flames that you want params for???
lemme hear from you!
Depth in UFHiya! Thank you so much for all your awesome submissions, it's so nice to have somewhere that people can share parameters if you can't get into the :#aposhack:

Hello to you all!recently i have been asked a few times about styles of fractals....so today i thought one style worth looking at is radial blur flowers....i first found them looking at NatalieKelsey's beautiful flame pack that contains the starting params for one http://dragonwinter.deviantart.com/gallery/4341#/d1a48gq.....there are also some scripts on this style as well...two from gitte http://gitte.deviantart.com/gallery/35445#/d1zl03d and http://gitte.deviantart.com/gallery/35445#/d12izoa and there are 2 from Kabuchan http://kabuchan.deviantart.com/gallery/2771512#/d2czmdp and http://kabuchan.deviantart.com/gallery/2771512#/d2d7ew7

Collection: Shine A Light
Shine a Light
Light means so many things in our lives beyond mere illumination.
Cinematographers call the hour just before the sun sets “the magic hour.” Movie producers and directors schedule the shooting of love scenes and other important moments in their script to take advantage of the powerful effect that “magic hour” sunlight subliminally exerts on our psyches. The Dutch master painters of the 17th century were expert in focusing the eye on the “story

Duel of the fates
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
Famously said by many, “Ninety percent of success is showing up.” How true it is about a soul killing combination: looking at what our own first efforts in any endeavor, particularly art, result in, and then looking at the works of far more experienced artists. Giving up always seems the logical, if panicked,
Collection: Celestial Illusions
Back when it was common knowledge that the sun and all the planets revolved around our Earth, the phenomena of solar and lunar eclipses were mysterious and terrifying occurrences. Were the gods unhappy with us? Were these heavenly messages indicating the End of Days had arrived? Emperors and kings often felt a familial connection with the Sun, and so feared its temporary withdrawal from the sky to be a warning of its unhappiness with royal actions. Desp

the dead zone
Julien Coquentin (bwiti) is a French “street art” photographer who captures people interacting with their environments, usually public spaces.
Sometimes the photos are “natural” captures in the moment. Sometimes the subjects are posed to become a part of the scene, sometimes as a comment on or extension of existing atmospheric art in the background, like graffiti (as in his series, “Please Draw me a Wall.”)
Tomasz Opasinski: So You Wanna Be In Pictures
Entertainment Advertising Creative Director

Still in his native Poland, he enrolled in the School of Advertising, taking courses in computers and publishing.

Anatomy Lessons: How to improve faster in 6 steps!
'Life Drawing 5' by algaegoblin
Do you know how to sketch human figures but do you want to refine your anatomy skills? Or do you not know anatomy at all and you are tired to trust your imagination? Did you notice you create disproportions in your drawings?
If you are aspiring artists and you already have your own style, you might as well believe you have no need of a guide, but you are wrong. Before exaggerating human proportions and begin to have your own style, you first have to know the basics.
This little guide is the result of an accurate research and 5 years of high school of art, and it's created for all those who want to learn something new or just make a useful review.
For those who have already studied art, my suggestion is to go to step 6 or trying to repeat all steps in Digital format.
First of all, if you want to learn faster you should draw using traditi
Deviousness - May 2015
In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
My name is Jeffrey Cruz and I'm a Melbourne-based Comic book Artist that goes under the pen-name of 'Chamba'. I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, back when I would copy images of Transformers from the back of the toy packaging. That year, my Love for creating art was born.
During my first year of University back in 2003, I was introduced to DeviantArt as part of class task to join an 'online community', something that was very foreign to me. Being part of DeviantArt had allowed me to open up my eyes to the variety of styles that existed beyond my own backyard and of the people who created such works. Throughout the years I've not only made life-long fr
Guy Fawkes Day
Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”
– Guy Fawkes
