Fractaling Vol. 20 Welcome to the 20th edition of Fractaling!
Please, be sure to go to the deviations, leave a comment and !

I have not finished yet! Seems like lately we've been spamming gradient
Old deviantART username symbols scriptLittle history:
Some days ago I had Xyrus-02 at my house. I was checking his page to search something when I think I saw a little tick appearing sliiiiightly before the medal. So, after I told him, he went checking the code but couldn't find any reference to the tick. Back then, I really liked the tick. I have nothing in contrary with the medal...only tastes.
(btw, this thing happened today too and I was sober! )
He went back home and coded this thingy. We beta-tested it together and now it works fine. I know many people preferring the old symbols, so here's your chance!
Here it is...

Fractal and Fractal-Related Daily Deviations for the past week
Scraber Lights by Thenit
Fractaling Vol. 18(and yes, I'm abandoning that stupid gimmick of numbering my journal entries )
In early December 2012, the latest issue of Fractaling has been released.
After that date, the feature disappeared from the message centers of many deviants.
What happened to those journals is surrounded by awe and mystery.
Still nobody knows and nobody dares to ask. But now it's back.
Yeah, ok, I've been a bit discouraged and lazy. This doesn't mean I'm allowed to act like a sloth.
So, after almost 2 years, the 18th edition of Fractaling is out!
You might have noticed I've been through a fave rage. I've found some interesting stuff I'm presenting to you now.
It will be a bit different from the previous issues (if you remember how the others were ).
Relax on your couch/chair and enjoy some fractalsauce!
#207: I need a dental bridge now!Well! Seems like I got a tick medal next to my nickname! I'm kinda speechless, really.
Thank you guys, I'm still overly joyed for that! And I also want to congratulate with the other new seniors (especially with Eitvys200 and the other fellow fractalists lucid-light, KPEKEP and raysheaf), glad to share this day with them!
#206: Lazy ass.Ok, last time I posted a fractal was May 31st.
It's not even lack of inspiration actually...I really don't feel like opening Apophysis lately. So much stuff I prefer to do instead of that.
I will do something I think. Same stuff, you know...just to get on the tracks again.
Except this and study (my studies are never that great xD), everything else is super fine!
How are you guys?
#205: Premium MembershipOk, who gave me the Premium membership?
Please, show yourself, I'm so curious! (even via note or whatever D: )
(and really really thankful! )
#204: What is fractal art for you? - My two centsIf you haven't read yet:
I haven't been able to reply in the past days, but now I have a general idea of what was going on.
First, let me say this is not about doing the same kind of fractals over and over, otherwise I wouldn't be here writing this journal because I'm the first who spams your message centers with 3D flowers, so who am I to judge?
I think it's more a matter of opening Apophysis/MB3D/Chaotica/UF/whateversoftware, clicking on a flame from a random batch or on a formula or whatever (or following a tutorial without tweaking) and rendering. And "done, here's my fractal, it's so easy making fractals".
Given that I don't really care about what other people do and I'm more for "live and let live", I also don't want non-fractalist people to think that making fractals is all about clicking randomly and getting a nice image to render. No, it's not like that. Making fractals is the same as drawing or painting or sculpturing: it's about thinking and havi
#203: My birthday!Hello!
I'm writing this journal to thank everybody for the sweet birthday wishes and presents, you've been so kind!
I've been busy spending the most awesome birthday ever, with all of my dearest friends and my amazing boyfriend Xyrus-02.

Thank you so so much everybody!!! [Hug] [Hug] I'd squeeze you all!!!
If I forgot to mention somebody, please tell me and I'll fix. [Noes!]

Troll pollution?What's up with all the troll accounts of really bad taste lately?
I wish dA would simply ban these people, when they are polluting this site on purpose and act like total jerks screaming for attention? (I mean, it's not even funny at all.) There are these people I have to keep reporting, since they upload commissioned works and my clients are really unhappy about it. Once it gets taken down, I have to report it AGAIN AND AGAIN since it get reposted again!? I have MUCH better things to do than deal with kids like this.
And they accuse the real artists to steal from them when the trust is so obvious? What kind of trolling is that, are they even trying?
And the death threat jokes...
This have gone way too far beyond stupidity x__x
I'm not sure if people realise they can get in LEGIT trouble for doing things like this? (but they are probably too young and ignorant to care) are they really that desperate and have nothing better and productive to do? That's really... sad.
Now it's just extre
White knightsI haven't spend much time on my computer last weekend, but enough to see that DeviantArt was kept busy by a troll that apparently did really well for as much as trolls can 'do well' on the internet. A little over 4000 pageviews in just 4 days the account is online proved not only the artists involved in the matter took offense... but apparently a lot of other DeviantArt members as well. Even those that seemed (to me at least) totally uninvolved with the troll or the particular type of art.
For those that wonder about the issue; It's about Foxbun's rather cynical joke about the 'closed species' matter. (I'm usually against name calling here. But this account has intentionally created for its goal. It has been all over the site already and would've been in the comments within 10 minutes, even without me mentioning here. I don't provide a link, though. Use your search engine if you want to research it.)
The term white knight is to most older members of DeviantArt (or the interne
Art and overthinkingDear, deviantart fellow artists
There are times when everything goes well, but sometimes It's so easy to let those thoughts (whether caused by fear, life, problems etc.) to overcome your wilingness to do anything. So we let ourselves to get distracted, even though that's not what we really want to do. It's just easier. But we should not let overthinking to stand in our way.
People do tend to overthink all the time. Worrying about unimportant things, while doing nothing about solving actual problems. If there is anything that you think constantly about, that needs to be done - don't put it away till the later. It will only get worse. So often do we regret our decisions in the past, yet we are the only ones who can impact our future.
People also crave for disctractions. That's why probably social media sites are so popular these days. Watching youtube videos all day - It's inspiring to see how other people get success
The most amazing thing happened today!This morning, a guy rand my doorbell and i thought that was a little weird because i wasn't expecting anyone. He said he has a delivery for me with 2 tubes from deviantART. I was really surprised because i didn't remember giving my address (it was such a long time ago that i did probably) or didn't remember ordering anything and only until i opened them did i realize they were print gifts from my wishlist! But i have no idea who sent them :icontearyguyplz: They were both prints of this artwork
and i am not sure if there were too separate people who sent them (they appear to have been sent at different times) or one person. BUT WHOEVER YOU ARE THANK YOU SO MUCH YOU WONDERFUL PERSON!
The prints are amazing looking! Kudos to deviantART because the quality of the print is astonishing the prints are on material not paper and that not only makes them more durable but it also has a very neat oil painting feel to it.
This just made my week! I will

#133: Help the 100 Premium Memberships Project!Please, it will take only few minutes!
Maybe many of you don't know, but winehaus is gathering 63,600 points to donate 100 Premium Memberships on Christmas (like a dA Santa or something).
He needs almost 4000 points to reach his goal. You can make a donation, but if you have no points, he had another idea.
I can't tell you what is all about, but if you want to get involved, you should send him a note.
A "How can I help you with your project?" should be fine! He'll explain everything!
Really, if you regularly join dA, you can help him doing very few things. Please, help winehaus to reach his goal and make someone's Christmas day!
Thank you for your attention and have a nice day!
Keep in Touch!
