I'm BACK!

Ritter Sport IV by Squirry


Personal journal is personal.
I'll take a day to rest and bring some DDs for your delight in the next days.
For now, enjoy my personal journal. IMing - :naive: 


Hey there!

I'm back from almost a month vacation in KA at boyfreund's place. :D
I didn't really make any kind of progress with my German skills, BUT now I know that I shouldn't say "eiscafé" when I want a cold coffee. Especially not after ordering a piece of cake. :shifty:
Anyway...we went to Strasbourg aaaaand...we saw the Cathedral!

...and the Parliament, which I didn't really like to be honest...you never saw its environment... :paranoid:
20150815 172943 by C-91

But I got this awesomely shaped gelato:
20150815 163945 by C-91

...which was surprisingly good, but goddamn expensive (almost 4 euros for a tiny cone...srlsy :stare:)


Meanwhile, I started taking drawing lessons through seniormentors, which I really suggest you go and show luff because we all need to give and receive moar luffs in our lives. :stare: I'm still noobish, but I'd love to explore something new rather than staying in my comfort zone forever. :D

Last Saturday we finally went to the Ritter Sport factory in Waldenbuch. I was waiting for that moment for so long, so when we reached the place I went on spree. ABSENCE OF MIND. 
And I will soon have a sugar shock or something:

Aside from the amazing choice of goodies they have in their factory outlet (people filled CARTS with RS chocolate bars of any kind), it was possible to see a mini exposition which explained the evolution of the brand. It was nice to see designs and advertisements from the past. :D

Why do I love RS? Because:
  • Packages are so colorful it's a pleasure to see them;
  • They have 982382783672865723756727466 different flavors, and every year they come up with something new;
  • They're SQUARE.
  • Other than that, the landscape was really nice:

Hey guys!

As I promised, here's the call journal for those who want to write something for the Fractal Art Week at projecteducate that will take place in October! (12th -> 18th)
What do we want from you?
  • Educational features (mere features won't be allowed: remember that the name of the group is ProjectEducate :D);
  • Reviews about programs;
  • Tutorials for beginners;
  • Introduction guides;
  • Workshops with artists
  • Trvias about fractals (infos about personalities related to the fractal world);
  • Interviews
  • We can host a chat event together!


As I said the other time, I'd like the week to focus on basic things so that it can be appreciated by a wider audience. :D

Throw your ideas here and start working on a draft!
The deadline for the drafts is Monday, September 28th. After that I won't be accepting any other draft to be published through projecteducate.
Please, understand that before the articles can be published, there's a team of editors which needs time to review all of your drafts and send you the corrections that have to be made. That's why we need the drafts 2 weeks prior. :)

I hope to hear from you soon! :wave:

Further DD Guidelines

Mon Aug 17, 2015, 12:06 AM by C-91:iconc-91:


cleaner


Hello! :wave:
I pondered about making a journal like this for long time. I always refrained from doing such a thing because I was unsure about how people would have received it, but the time has come!

A lot asked about more detailed DD guidelines, especially about the requirements of an artwork to be DD worthy. In my Daily Deviations Guidelines, I talked about four main traits I look at when a decision has to be made.

I will try to insert some visual examples (the bad ones will be made by me).
For UF guidelines, see heavenriver's How to fractal well.

Originality


This is the trait I'm willing to "sacrifice" more than the others. What I mean is that, as long as the fractal is well crafted and has something more than the ones you normally see in the gallery, it's likely that I'll feature it.

Example: Flowers

While it goes without saying that flowers are probably one of the least original objects for a fractal (especially Apophysis and UF ones), you can still make it so it stands above the others.
Degrees of Freedom by C-91

This is one of my first flowers, and clearly something that is not DDable in my opinion.
Other than having many issues on technical level, my imprint is not really visible. :)
What would be a good flower to feature as DD? (and, in fact, it's a DD)
For Sentimental Reasons by SallySlips

It's not something you can see everyday in the Fractal Art gallery. The colors combination is unusual but fits perfectly, the lighting is well placed on the top of the bulge and contributes in creating the right ambience. A great attention to the details leads to a creation that, despite coming from the kind of fractal you wouldn't call "original", stands out above the many of its kind.

Other examples:
Curlicues by FractalsFromHome Fractally Flowered by Swoopswatkill Posy by ellarien Florinda by renatamag

Colors


This translates into:
  1. No color barfs;
  2. No color combos that hurt the eyes in general.

Example: a punch in the eye.
Sox by C-91

Again, there are many issues, but let's focus on colors only. Isn't that pink a little bit too much? I apologize in advance, in case you get your sight worsened. :|
Don't get me wrong, you can still use similar color combinations, but less aggressive ones. The result will be way more pleasant:
Infinite Waters Diving Deep by catelee2u Ginnungagap by CoffeeToffeeSquirrel
Example: color barf
Try1 by C-91

I quickly made a tweak of one of my fractals with a coloration that I consider color barf.
There are too many colors that don't fit with each other. More colors doesn't mean better fractal, it always depends on what you use. :)
Despite this opinion, I featured some wonderfully colorful fractals in my CV term, and this are good examples of how to use many colors at the same time (vivid ones too!):

The Preservation of Self by heavenriver Universe Triptych by MadameLuciferi Waking Up by OutsideFate Summer Patchwork by FractalEyes

Composition


This one is difficult. It might concern symmetry and the placement of the image within the borders. An example?
Fairy Pearls Under the Ocean by C-91

The focus in this fractal is evidently on the wrong spot. There's a lot of empty space, while the view should have been zoomed where there's actually something interesting to see.
There are exceptions to this rule, but in those cases there's always something strongly eye-catching to see among the empty space.
On symmetry: I have to admit I'm not a huge fan of highly symmetrical fractals, especially those which have radial symmetry and are centered in the very center of the image. Send them my way anyway though, because they might be great on every other level. :)

Quality of the render


I'm not too picky if a fractal contains some graininess. Sometimes, it can be justified by the greatness of the fractal itself, or by its kind (see Apophysis glitch fractals). But there's a limit to everything:
Baseflowernosphercross-2 by C-91

This a different color preview of one of my fractals and, for that reason, it's been done with lower quality. That's ok for a preview, but if you want to suggest a fractal with this render quality, think twice.
I know that some MB3D fractals have rough edges, due to the kind of formula the artist is using in the artwork. That's also ok, main thing is that those grainy borders don't disturb the overall appearance of the fractal.

Other things you should consider


  • Pay attention to credits. There are many fractal manipulations or Mandelbulb3D fractals that use stock resources (backgrounds for example), or parameters. If the artist doesn't credit properly in the description, refrain from suggesting and instead send them a note asking for further informations about the used resources.
  • Dreamscope. Don't even bother sending me a note with a picture altered with Dreamscope, I'm really sorry for that but no. I documented myself about the process and as far as I understood, the only """fractal""" component they have is iterations. Adding a personal taste issue (I really don't like them, I'm sorry :|), you get my point. If the altered image is a fractal, send me the original artwork instead. :aww:
  • Personal taste. It does have a part, I don't deny that. But it's not always about my taste. It's not about pleasing the CV. It's more about "There might be something better than this in the artist's gallery. Let's check twice!".
  • Question your DD suggestion. There's the WOW factor, and I perfectly understand when somebody sees a fractal and says "MAI GAD TIS IS BEAUTIFUL". But is it really the best piece they have made in recent times? Probably yes, probably no. Double check their gallery and aim to the very best. I remind you that my duty is to feature the artist with the piece that best represents them, and meets the high quality standards of a Daily Deviation.
  • Being unactive. Suggesting a DD that belongs to an artist which doesn't take part to community life leads to rejection. If the artist hasn't been active for over a month, go look for something else.
  • Being recent. As long as the artist is active, it's ok to suggest something old. I still prefer featuring something more recent (a year old is fine too). So, if you're going to suggest something from 2009, double check if there's anything DD worthy from recent times. :D


That's all for now. I hope this in-depth journal will give you some more indications about suggesting DDs to me. :)

Thank you for reading! :iconwizardplz:

Hello! :wave:

I'd like to talk to you about a topic I really care about and never fully expressed my opinion on: Daily Deviations.

First of all, I love them! I get excited myself when I find an outstanding piece, or when somebody suggests it to me. It's a great feeling featuring them and, most of all, it's a pleasure to see the artist's happiness for something they put so much effort in being recognized and displayed on a wider scale.

There has been a lack of Fractal Daily Deviations lately because I'm not receiving many suggestions (except during that DD Suggestion drive ) and I'm really having difficulties finding high quality fractals in the gallery, making it hard to work with.

I am myself concerned about this matter and I really want to do something against it, because I do enjoy featuring beautiful fractal art and I bet you guys enjoy seeing more of them in the page.

If we committ ourselves, I know we can make it. :)
If a suggestion is rejected, don't be discouraged and keep on searching for amazing fractals.
But most of all, keep on making awesome art. :hug:

I hope to hear from you guys very soon. :heart:

Silvia
Hello guys! :wave:

I booked another week for our sweet gallery at projecteducate! :eager:
The major complaint about the past Fractal Art Week was that the articles were too specifical and hard to understand by non-fractal people. :saddummy:
This time I'd like to have articles focused on very basic things, turned to a wider audience. :D

I'm not calling for contributors at the moment. Take this month to think IF and HOW you'd want to contribute to this week. I'll make the call journal in a month. :D
I'll put a note on my phone to remember. :|

Hope to hear from you! Spread the luff and have a great week! :hug:

The Sport of Fractalists: Pong

Sat Jul 18, 2015, 2:00 PM by C-91:iconc-91:
:iconprojecteducate:
:iconprojecteducate:


Digital Art

Anybody here wanna pong?Typical fractalist in the chats (and not only!)



In an artistic community like DeviantArt, sharing is surely one of the most vital activities: it makes people gather and work together, and creates benefits on both the side of the masters and the side of the newcomers. We wouldn't go much further, if nobody shared a little bit of knowledge with us (and viceversa). :D

In my little community (Fractal Art), we have an entertaining way to share knowledge and have fun at the same time! It's called pong!

What you need to know...


While making a fractal, the software generates a code which corresponds to the fractal itself. If copied and pasted in the specific program, this code opens the fractal as we made it. It pretty much works as PSD files work for Photoshop: they let you see the various layers the digital artwork is made of.

So, a code allows you to see all the elements a fractal has been made with.
This code is what we call parameters (or params). :D If you ever wondered what those weird characters that appear in the description of some fractal artworks are, now you know. :la:

So...pong you say?

A fractal pong consists of two or more people exchanging params with each other, tweaking them in the chosen fractal program and exchanging the newly generated params back to the other player(s). :D
It's a pong because the players pong the params to each other, as the ball in ping pong matches!

There are basically two different kind of pongs (which don't have names, so I named them wishing to make them more comprehensible :|):

  1. Table tennis
  2. Relay race


Table tennis



The classic pong play. Usually, two players make arrangements on the software to be used and the conditions, and decide who starts.
They act as it follows:
  • Fractalist 1 sends their set of params to Fractalist 2;
  • Fractalist 2 copies and pastes the params into the software and starts making is version of the original fractal, through tweaks and heavier modifications;
  • When happy with their result, Fractalist 2 sends their new params to Fractalist 1;
  • Fractalist 1 does the same: copy/pastes the params in the software, makes their version of the fractal and then sends the new params to Fractalist 2;
  • The procedure is repeated over and over! :D


This kind of pongs can be done in one session (usually in chats), or they can be ongoing. For the ongoing pongs, at the end of every tweaking session (basically when one of the players is about to send their params to the other), the params usually come with the rendered fractal itself.

Relay race



Relay races in the fractal world (and not only) are usually called round robins.
A number of players is set and then the game goes as it follows:
  • Fractalist 1 is provided with a set of params by the group or the person who hosts the game. They make a tweak and then post the fractal+params on DeviantArt (assuming the round robin takes place on DA :lmao:);
  • Fractalist 2 obtains the params from Fractalist 1, tweaks them and then posts their result+params;
  • The procedure is repeated until Fractalist N, which closes the round by posting their fractal+params.



The most productive pong couple in the fractal community is the one made of Undead-Academy and batjorge
:iconundead-academy:, :iconbatjorge: and the first round of their 2nd ongoing pong session:
Let The Pong Begin - 1 by Undead-Academy Carnivorous - Pong 02 by batjorge

They made over 1200 fractal artworks together!!! :faint:


A place to go for a good fractal pong is surely the #Aposhack! They're all pong addicted!!! :faint:

Welcome To PongoramaThis groups is devoted to pongs and collaborations of all types
A Pong is when an art work is created by one artist and then, passed to their partner(s) who take it and transform it into a new work.  That work is then passed back (or on to the next partner), and the pong continues.
DeviantArt is home to many Pong teams.  We formed this group to promote those artists - to have a place to:
Showcase the art involved.
Find partners to collaborate with.
Offer resources for Pong Teams
Are you in an active pong?
Would you like to be?  Contact us and we'll create a folder dedicated to your team and its art work.
Need a partner?  Look here: http://fav.me/d7kbxym
Collaborations
These are one-time exchanges between two or more artists.  A single work is started by one artist and completed by the other.
Please join
Even if you aren't in a pong or plan to be - join or watch!  Everyone
LOOKING FOR A PONG PARTNER?If you are LOOKING FOR A PONG PARTNER, please leave a comment here (on THIS particular journal post) to get your name on the list :)
Please describe which software you are looking for partnering (if your request is related to a certain software) or if you prefer to work with in any specific medium (like watercolor, graphite, or digital-in-general).
I suggest that your comment use a specific format to so that we can more-easily help you find the perfect Pong-Partner...
Your comment should look like:
-----------------begin snip----------------------------------------
1 - NEED PARTNER:  PREFERRED MEDIUM
2 - PARAMETER SHARING PREFERENCE
3 - NOTES OR PARTICULARS YOU FEEL YOU NEED TO EXPLAIN
-----------------end snip------------------------------------------
So, for example, if I were looking for a pong-partner to do UltraFractal pongs with, my reply to this journal entry would look like:
-----------------begin snip----------------------------------------
1- Need Partner:  UltraFra
Pong VS Collaboration VS TweakWhen reading this please keep in mind that this represents the opinion of this group. We've posted these definitions to help members understand what WE mean when we say Pong, Collaboration and Tweak. The way we set our galleries up is based on our definitions.
Q: What is a collaboration?
ONE element  that is used by one or many people.  For example a black and white drawing, drawn with the intent of others to finish.  Or a collage that is passed from one person to the collaborating partner.  The original element is still a part of the end product.
Q:  What is a pong?
A pong happens when 3 steps occur
Initial piece / seed is created
Another person takes the seed and adds their own stuff [at this point its collaboration]
The 2nd person's result goes to create the seed for the next round. this is a pong, when not only the origin seed has been transformed by a second person, but that second person's work becomes the origin version


I hope you enjoyed and found this little insight on fractal world habits interesting!
Remember: every time you use somebody else's resources (like in pongs), if you decide to submit your artwork to DeviantArt, mention them in the description...it's important to credit your sources! :heart:

Hello! :wave:
It's been a long time since I wrote a personal journal. :slow:
What happened in the past months? Starting from February, I had a mix of stuff (mononucleosis and cytomegalovirus) and suffered a lot with my throat. Thankfully, lymph nodes didn't get swollen, but I had to stop my physical activity (wing tjun) for three months, missing the chance to reach a higher grade. Also, study times have been difficult. Yes, health above everything, and yes, it could have been worse...but let me complain, it's still annoying. :|
Because of mononucleosis, shortly before Easter I had to check if my spleen got swollen. Everything was ok, but they discovered other two things: the first one is that my gallbladder was invisible, due to being full of stones, second one is that I have a tiny tiny nodule in my thyroid, which I have to check in some months again. Nothing to worry about for the moment. :lmao:



So, due to the fact that I never had severe problems with the status of my gallbladder (except an annoying dyspepsia), I decided to remove it to prevent crampings. Two days ago I underwent surgery for that and they found my gallebladder full as ever of 1cm gallstones. :lmao:


(My tonsils are still there, but they risked to be removed often too :|)

I have some problems due to anesthesia (I still babble) and my belly hurts, so I have problems in walking and getting up, but overall I'm fine. :D I should be completely restored in a week. :D


On another note...tomorrow I'll spend Tea Time with Eitvys200 in #TehTime. If you want to come by and ask me questions, we'll be there from 14 CEST (Central Europe Summer Time). :D You're welcome to join us!

Take care! :hug:

We will reveal the name of the mysterious fractalist in the next challenge, and feature those who guessed correctly.

One rule!


Please don't cheat and use the Google Images search engine to find out the fractalist we're talking about. :|

Hints:
