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!!
hey!!!!!!! contest!!!!!!we are having a huge contest......the prizes are amazing!!!!!!!! http://fantasystock.deviantart.com/journal/Contest-Back-to-Fractal-Class-256301711 go check it you!!!!! you have 3 weeks!!!!!!
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:
I really wanted to learn how to create depth in UF fractals and recently Jimpan1973 was kind enough to share this awesome tutorial http://jimpan1973.deviantart.com/art/Ultra-Fractal-Params-Tutorial-195228604 Here are some params from when I was practicing this if you'd like to tweak
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
i know that radial blurs can be a bit difficult to render but chaotica does an amazing job.....http://lyc.deviantart.com/art/chaotica-178994646

You CAN Do It Too! Commissions, Exposure, and...
Do you feel like no one cares about your artwork? That no matter how hard you try, you'll never improve? Well, I've been there before.
A little less than a year ago, I didn't even have 100 watchers. It was tough trying to find commissions, even though I priced them around 10 - 100 an hour. Sure, I had some wonderful people supporting me (thank you very much for that!), but when I looked at the thousands of diehard fans the "popular" artists had, I felt kinda useless. It seemed like even a thousand watchers, or just being able to earn minimum wage was impossible. Sometimes I wanted to cry from all the effort I put in. I kept drawing and drawing but barely improving. I was frustrated and felt useless. But instead of giving up, I pushed myself even harder, and by God's grace it's starting to work out for me.
I now have over 16,000 amazing people encouraging me, and I know it's only a matter of tim
No more excuses, it's time to improve your art!You’re probably well acquainted with the old proverb “practice makes perfect.” And while I don’t fully believe that perfection is attainable, because the very notion of perfection is somewhat subjective, getting better at anything requires both time and effort. I’m going be very blunt here; if you want to improve your artistic skill you need to actually practice.
My heart goes out to everyone here who is struggling to improve so don’t feel that I’m purposely singling you out here. However throughout my time on dA (and in real life) I’ve met artists begging for advice on how to quickly improve and sadly when I tell them to begin practicing the excuse is always ‘well, I don’t really have the time for that.’
And I ain’t got time for yo attitude.
You do have the time

Basic CSS Style GuideIntroduction
CSS is a style language used to define the style and formatting of web pages. It is used in conjunction with HTML.
If we think of HTML as the building blocks of the web then, essentially, CSS is the painter and decorator. Very simply, HTML defines the structure of the page and CSS defines the style.
What I'll be helping you with here is getting to grips with the basics of CSS. I'll be explaining how use CSS as well as providing a number of examples that you can use to style your own web pages and journals. All you need to do is copy/paste the code and replace the sample text with your own content. Along with the quick reference I've also written a brief glossary of terms and provided a list of useful links in case you wish to do some further reading.
A point of note is that while the information and examples I've given here apply to CSS use anywhere on the web, this guide itself is geared towards the use of CSS on deviantART. As such, and given that this h

This is the new way to find our winner of our monthly challenge: instead using a Poll with the ten most voted of the period, we'll be using a blog to showcase the 20 MOST VOTED on this theme!
This means, or so I hope, more exposure for your pieces and galleries.
The idea is simple: each work has a number and all deviants have the opportunity to vote like if it was a poll...with the difference that you will choose not one but 3 favourites!
All deviants may vote, INCLUSIVE who is participating; the participants may vote for themselves and ask friends and watchers to vote; this blog may have publicity by all means and be submitted in groups.
The work with most votes wins 130 points;
the second place wins 80, the 3rd place wins 50 and the 4th wins 25 .

Manip AcademyIntroducing a new project!
Manip Academy (thanks, cristii, for inspiration for the name) is a new photomanipulation project inspired by projecteducate. We all love to learn, and we learn best from one another. Here's our chance to share what we know.
Manip Academy is an education initiative designed to spread the knowledge and the love. It is a collaboration between CRPhotomanipulation and we-HEART-photomanip. We will share tips and tricks for photomanipulation success. It is difficult to write tutorials, but anyone can write a simple tip or describe how they achieved a specific effect.
This project will feature two weekly articles written by the community every week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This will be an ongoing project within our community, and we hope that many people will take advantage of the chance to sign up to submit one blog or even just a few sentences to help the community.

Volpi.You will find that the story you tell
is very rarely your own. In Lucca,
even the smallest pebbles
breathe in the warm sunlight.
Knotted stones and cobbled roads
beat out a paper-dry heartbeat heat
my city breathes in and out,
inhales sparrow air.
It's writing a story.
You are the pen.
You will find that in Lucca
the daisy chains forge fire
in side streets and back alleys.
Teenagers intertwine. Tell me,
odd flower, are you still closed?
Here we are colored wax;
the heat of the city melts us.
We run into each other, rhapsody
of pigments. Operas are our specialties.
Open up; feel the reds.
If not, try and see them. There is a place
of deep knife marks, a street
long as midnight
you may learn something there.
Valentina's voice glimmers like red wine.
You may enjoy intoxications. Still,
know alcohol has no story
and will swallow your own.
Find the sign with the wolf on it.
You'll know the place. Epiphanies ring true as church-bells.
Lucca still guides the wanderers
to well sp
