SA Interview - C-91Congratulations to C-91 for receiving seniority on July 7th, 2014! :squee:

What is it like to be a part of the senior hut? How do you feel about receiving the Medal? How did you receive the news?
I don't know how to describe the feeling! :noes: Everytime I think about my new status, I smile like an idiot. :lmao: I don't deny that I hoped for it, but I actually didn't expect to become a senior. It's been a huge and awesome surprise and I need some time to get used to my little medal. :D I hope it means that I've done something good around here, that would make me even more happy! :noes:
I was checking my dA message center on the phone when I saw the journal by fourteenthstar that pre-announced she would have been nominating new seniors during the day. I'm always curious because I like when I recognize somebody from the list

Alright, we got a situation!

No, not really. :D But anyway, I felt it was legitimate to write some...ahem...guidelines about the use of my resources (despite I did it long ago but nobody gave a lololol). :lmao:

Ok, so...my resources consist of three basic things:
  1. Parameters;
  2. A gradient pack;
  3. 3 tutorials (Spherical Plants, Tweaking and Flower Field - which, gladly, is no longer available here on dA :eyes: )
Let's start!

Parameters


Parameters are no longer available publicly (except for some older deviations). You can send me a note and ask for them or there's the chance you can get them from somebody who took part to pongs in the chatroom #Aposhack.

While I never say no to somebody who kindly asks for a flame set, I'd reaaaaaaaally like you to write where the params come from in the description of your tweak. :aww: (read = add the credits please)

Gradient pack


No credit required. Seriously, crediting everybody for gradients is insane. :|

Tutorials


This has changed a bit through time, since now credits are not required for the use of my tutorials. I appreciate you took time to read about a technique I experimented and decided to share. :)
What pisses me off, though, would be somebody denying at any cost that they followed one of my tutorials, when they evidently did. It happened, the result was identical, but they kept saying "I read the tutorial, but my fractal has some different steps".

If they ask "did you follow any tutorial", please be honest and state so. There's nothing wrong with following a guide, we all did that. :aww:

ABOUT SCRIPTS:

I'd like you to ask before creating any script from my params and/or my tutorials (not that you want to, but you never know). I don't like scripts and, especially, how people use them, but that is my taste and we can discuss about what to do. :D But remember to ask BEFORE doing anything. :D

Some of you might have replied or considered my poll about light years, I shall give you some explanation. :lol:

I was in #devart yesterday and a person started to tell me stuff about how to change my life, how my life will be average if I don't get famous, when they added a sentence like:
"ever though how in space people talk about lightyears? life is fucking short for real you gotta make it count"

So I wanted to see how many of you knew what a light year represents. That's it. :lol:

A light year is the distance covered in a year travelling at the speed of light, in few words. Light travels at almost 300.000 km/s (something less), and a year is made of roughly 31536000 seconds (something more).
Multiply the speed of light for this amount of time and you get the value of a light year in kilometres. :D (9,46 x 1012 km)

Anyway, I'm not here to give you physics lessons. :lmao: Just wanted to clarify that. :D



I didn't publish the Fractaling feature for yesterday. :noes: I think I'll skip for this week (I need to gather more stuff), and also tomorrow there will be the themed feature in DailyFractalFeatures. :D But I'll post some stuff in this journal anyway. :D

On another note, next week I will start my German lessons (:lawoo:) and probably I will take the exam to get the 3rd level of Wing Tjun, though I don't feel that prepared. :shifty:
What about you? Anything to tell me? :la:

Take a look at the Fractal Daily Deviations for the past weeks!

Journal Skins!

Heeeeeeellow! :iconawesomefaceplz:
Just FYI, two fractals of mine have been used to prepare as many journal skins. :la: In fact, I'm using one of them right now because awesomesauce. :heart:

Free to use! :la: :hug: Thanks to Endorell-Taelos!

As a tradition, every year I make a journal about the upcoming Fractal CV. :noes:
Instead of starting things like "OMG THEY WANT TO CLOSE THE GALLERY" like it happened last year (which has been pretty hilarious if I may say), let's spend our time making predictions. :lmao:
Who do you hope/think will be? Did you apply yourself? :D

How are you guys? :la: My Saturday started marvellously, my dad came back home from a month absence and I'm preparing a cheesecake in the afternoon. :la:

First of all, I want to shamelessly promote my Saturday Fractal Feature at DailyFractalFeatures: Daily Fractal Feature - Saturday Special:icondailyfractalfeatures:
Daily Fractal Feature for 30th August 2014 - Saturday Special

On a daily basis we, at #DailyFractalFeatures, are aiming to showcase a small selection of fractal artwork to the community.
We are proud to present our Special Saturday Feature, whose theme for today will be flowers!
You can show your support by +favloveing this News Article.
Please comment and +fav the works featured and congratulate the artists!

I will be alternating with another person (:tehestare: ). Though I don't think specific deviation suggestions would work for this feature, you can still suggest a theme (I think). To do so, visit the feature page and follow the guidelines at the bottom of the entry. :la:

Second: the keywords will be soon changed in tags (you know that, right?) and will be publicly visible. If you entered "boobs" as keyword, I suggest you to go and change it, unless you want to see #boobs as tag on your deviations. :tehestare: :tehestare: :tehestare:

Other than that...anything to tell/show me? :la:

I'm writing this now because there will be a few time before this post will be shadowed by the Fractaling journal. :dummy:
I'd like to say a few things. :la:

  1. Despite I've been saying to do differently a lot of times, people keep thanking me for favs (which I can understand until a certain degree) or llamas (for how much I committ, I won't be able to understand this EVER). If I don't reply to this kind of comments, you know why :D (for what concerns faves, it's not really necessary to thank me nine million times in a row if I fave nine million of your pieces in a row :sweatdrop: revamp v2 );
  2. I'll be posting the Fractaling feature for this week on Thursday (as always :lmao:), but it will be skipped next week. I'm going on holiday for almost two weeks (and spend some time with my boyfriend La love we both need some relax :D ), and I won't be able to check and fave enough pieces to do a feature (though I'll lurk a lot from the phone!). I considered many possibilities, but decided to do this way instead :D ;
  3. You won't have much time if you don't hurry, go search for some hats!!!


Happy Birthday DeviantART!:star: Welcome to Wonderland :star:
Greetings, stranger.
I find myself delighted to lay my rather large eyes on you. A purrfectly delicious mystery awaits you. Won't you come this way?
I've been a bad kitty-- a very naughty, naughty feline, indeed. You see, today is Alice's Unbirthday, and all the inhabitants of Wonderland had planned to join her and the Mad Hatter for tea and cake. But, the Mad Hatter, being quite a bit off his rocker, is requiring that everyone wear a hat to the party. Anyone without a hat cannot attend.
Whoops! Mysteriously, *smile* all the hats in Wonderland have gone missing. What a shame, what a shame. Whatever shall we do?
I know what we shall do. You and I, stranger, we shall go to the party together. I hear the cake is delicious this year, and there will be plenty for us.
Except, wait! HA! You cannot!!! You have no hat, either! I suppose you'll have to stay here, too, then. Very well. Goodbye.
 OMG - Watch that

If you have to tell me something in this brief absence period, please drop a note! :D
In the meantime, I leave you some basic spherical bubble params! See what you can do. :D
