#91: Policy&CommissionsI'm so mad!
Well people, it's time to clarify some questions. Now I'm serious.
Can I use this image as wallpaper?
Yes, you can, as long as you don't modify it and it's for personal use.
Can I use you work to build up another one of mine?
No, you can't. I spend a lot of time to make my images, and I will be glad if they stay as they are originally.
There have been some people asking me after they did the work. At least ask me before!
Next time I'll find a derivative work, I'll report it to deviantArt.
My work IS NOT STOCK!!!
Can I use your piece as cover of my literature?
You can, as long as you credit me in the description (or wherever you want) and the image isn't modified.
Can I use your piece to make a video?
Same as the previous point.
Can I share your piece?
Sharing is encouraged. You can share my pieces (only if you want,
#89: Frequently Asked QuestionsOk guys, I think it's time to do a little FAQ, because I read the same questions over and over.
Let me see if it's useful for somebody.
OMG, what is this?
It's a fractal, baby!
What is a fractal?
It's a really difficult question to answer, but I'll try to keep it as simple as I can. So, fellow fractalists, if you're reading, I won't be that precise in answering.
Wikipedia says: "A fractal is a mathematical set that has a fractal dimension that usually exceeds its topological dimension and may fall between the integers."
Wait, what? I didn't even understand myself.
Ok, a fractal is basically the repetition of a same "image". This image can be repeated with its original dimension or fractal dimension (it can be resized).
For example, let's pick the Romanesco Broccoli (the image is from Wikipedia):
As you can see, it's a repetition of the same "peaks" over and over, each of them with diffe
#88: The Great Mandelbulber - dark-beamHello people, and welcome to the first of a (I hope) long series of interviews to Mandelbulb 3D artists!
First of all, I need to spend two words on the title: I know that there's another fractal program called Mandelbulber, which is different from Mandelbulb 3D, but the other alternative was to give the name of Mandelicious!, which sounds too stupid to me. I have difficulties in naming my fractals, let alone these things.
I studied a bit on what kind of question I could ask, and I have to thank all those people who make interviews here on dA (exspecially those I watch ). They inspired me a lot!
(yeah, some questions are pretty much the same )
dark-beam kindly accepted to be the first. :iconteheplz: He's a really nice fellow deviant, other than being the author of many MB3D's formulas.

Hello dark-beam! Tell us something about you.
I'm an Engineering stu
#100: The Great Mandelbulber - MarkJayBeeThe 100th issue of my journal and there's nothing better than a Great Mandelbulber to fill it!
Good morning people! Welcome to the second volume of The Great Mandelbulber, a series of interviews to discover the Mandelbulb3D world with the eyes of artists who use it.
The wait is finally over, here it is the interview with MarkJayBee! Please, have some time to read it, you won't regret!
The Great Mandelbulber - MarkJayBee
Hello MarkJayBee! Tell us some about you.
I live in the small seaside town of Largs, on the west coast of Scotland, which has some wonderful scenery and sea views. As a visual artist and photographer, living in this location has always acted as a great source of inspiration for me, and I count myself very fortunate to live here.
I've been producing artwork in one form or another for as long as I can remember and that goes back quite a long while!! My influences mainly stem from Science F
#114: The Great Mandelbulber - bib993Hello people, welcome to the third interview of The Great Mandelbulber series!
Today I'm gonna introduce you Jérémie Brunet, better known as bib993!
Everybody knows Jérémie for his outstanding Mandelbulbs, which have been part of many shows, as the recent Beyond The Infinite exibition in Karlstad (Sweden) along with MANDELWERK:
Definetely a great example to follow!
Let's go straight to the interview!
The Great Mandelbulber - bib993
Hello bib993! Tell us something about you.
I bought 2 high end PCs in last 2 years just to make fractals!
Was Mandelbulb 3D your first choice when you began your artistic journey?
To be honest, I never intended to begin any artistic journey! Like many fractalers I'm just a kind of lazy geek who likes to produce stunning graphics in a few mouse clicks.
To answer your question, I don't remember exactly the first programs I used t
#127: The Great Mandelbulber - GrahamSymGood morning! It's the 14th of the month, that is to say time to introduce another master of MB3D!
We had a trip in Europe: we went to Italy, then in Scotland, to end in France. It's time to go back to the United Kingdom and pay a visit to GrahamSym, the master of sci-fi fractals!
Well, in my opinion! But I'm sure many of you will agree with me.
The Great Mandelbulber - GrahamSym
Hello GrahamSym! Tell us something about you.
I live in East London, married 3 grown up children. I worked as a Museum technician, until ill health forced me to retire. I play guitar and bass. In the 80's and 90's I played in bands but it took too much comittment once my children were born, although I still have the odd jam with friends. I have been creating computer art of one sort or another since the late 90's. I used Terragen, Truespace, Blender, Bryce, Photoshop and a few others.
When did you start making fractals? I
#139: The Great Mandelbulber - EvgeniaGolovchenkoHello!!! Sorry for my lack of activity, anyway I can't miss to make an entry for The Great Mandelbulber!!!
We hit the 5th issue, so let's celebrate it with Evgenia Katya Lyubeznaya-Golovchenko, better known as ArtisticLicenseNow!
One of my favourites, for her incredible surreal scenery to her polls (check them out!).
The Great Mandelbulber - ArtisticLicenseNow
Hello ArtisticLicenseNow! Tell us something about you.
Going back, I studied art in college, but wanted to study more academics much to the dismay of my art professors. Then Maths and Languages professors were dismayed at my will to still study art. I've been at odds ever since. As many will attest. I like changing my name on deviantart, wish I could change it every 2 weeks. Favorite colors are the greens, golds, oranges and turquoises. Favorite combination is green, black and white. It has to be the right green tho. Very, very hard to find.
