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

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:

The hub for pong lovers is Pongorama, which has all the infos you need to know about pongs!
:iconpongorama:
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:

Voyage to the unknown is a feature project started by Mrs-Durden. The aim of Voyage to the unknown is to browse a gallery or subgallery you normally wouldn't visit, pick some pieces you like and create a feature with them. :D
The project has been going on for a month, so it's time I take part too. :iconjuap:

I won't tag anybody, but I'd really appreciate if you could do something similar. Time spent in features is always well spent. :D

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:

I'm here to introduce you to seniormentors, a group focused on helping the DeviantArt community through offering senior mentors. :D
JenFruzz recently took it over and brought back this useful project to us. :hug:
The Seniors Mentoring Project dates back to 2003, it's a project that helps members of DeviantArt to better themselves in the artwork that they produce. Senior Members of DA (the members) provide the community with informative blogs, criticism and one-on-one mentoring to answer any questions inquisitive deviants may have, and help them improve their artwork all together.


The Mentor Team is made up of senior members who help the community out by providing you – the community – with a specific contact point in relation to artwork, mentorship and support. 
It is individual Mentor's discretion how involved they get with artists they're connected with through our group--we strongly encourage one-on-one mentorship.

Your Senior Mentor for Fractal Art is MiloticScale. :w00t:
