The BEST of 2012 in FRACTAL ARTWelcome to the biggest journal (always) submitted only one a year for your personal pleasure, with amazing site finds considered in my humble opinion as the BEST of 2012 works from Fractal gallery !!!
The deviations are placed in no particular order (sometimes they do have a chronological significance, sometimes they don't) - all choices are mine & mine alone - grab a drink, grab a sandwich and prepare yourself for a visual feast - colors, patterns and textures !!!

INSPIRATION STATION pt5INSPIRATION STATION pt5
Inspiration Station is a joined community effort - started up by our fractal gallery volunteer Light SuicideBySafetyPin
It features artists, who made an impact on the Fractal community, either via inspiration of artworks or selfless attitude of helping others & coding programs we all enjoy and use. I would like to introduce the featured artists by using quotes from published journals.
Welcome to pt5
eReSaW says Coby from the Netherlands - Her works are all masterpieces of the finest. She is the queen of UF.
Paddlin-Maddlin says This week's artist is none other than Coby is one of my personal favourites and a very talented and prolific fractal artist who produces some very beautiful pieces. Here are a few of those I like, but you really must visit her page and see all she has there for you. Enjoy.

Fractals that ROCK !! pt2FRACTALS THAT ROCK!! pt2
The first news with Rocking Fractals went over very well - and I got many comments from non-fractal artists, saying they really enjoyed it.
And since fractal art is still in the 'underdog' category getting folks on dA more familiar with it, sounds grand to me.
I would love to get you familiar with few artists - some new, some not so new and a nice mixed-smoothie of fractal works flowing to the gallery on regular bases and that will mean "Fractals that ROCK" is here to stay and give you updates on newest finds and excellent compositions and visions - Enjoy !!
Fractals that ROCK !! pt3Some new & some older finds from my vast gallery of fractal faves. I would say wrapping this years artworks, this is a year of the mandelbulb 3D - the new improved versions of the program, really opened up more horizons for many new fractal artists and also created fantastical compositions coming from the onces, who dabbled with the software longer time. Now with the reflections options, better dof settings, "dust" clean-up many scenes carry complex sci-fi terrains, or whole futuristic cities - just like Dune, or StarWars !!
Hail to all, who contribute to generating resources for Mandelbulb3D - big shouts to Jessie from FractalForum, thank you to Kali :devFractKali: and Luca dark-beam for his gnarling formula (which Im enjoying personally).
Please enjoy this installment of Rocking fractals - and stay tuned for more
Project Educate - Fractal Week - Nature of FRACTALIn the begining there was vast, unmeasurable empty space, waving & contracting.
The gravitational pull & density was so strong to condense into a big dwarf exceeding all reality sizes ...and then it suddenly happened the BIG BANG !!
All molecules & fragments of the dwarf got to travel at light speed to different of cosmos, forming new systems, and galaxies.
The seeds of life got scattered into remote places - one of them fell on earth and started to grow The evolution at early stages forming terrains, bodies of
water & atmosphere above the planet surface. And then - everything grew in proportional neverending chains of F R A C T A L S
All this was caring hope for new LIFE - the molecules dancing, splitting,pulling each other closer build the first blocks of DNA (fractalized models, as you can see).
More about Blooms !!!As you have noticed I got some Blooms going recently and they become very very popular So it happens I'm in a spring mood and feel like being showered with flowers - time to shed the heavy skin clothing into light and fragrant. Got amazing comments on the blooms as well - from dreamy, in my dreams full of magic to I wish they grew in my garden, can you make some prints and even could you make the Blooms into 3d-sculptures
All ideas and suggestions are very welcome - on short time notice I did added some prints & also a brand new calendar (with Blooms only). You can always add it to your wish list (so you don't forget the blooms when Christmas comes) or you can get it even right now, still 10 solid months left, and afterwards you can get the singular month pages to use as prints (I do that - good price for 12 artworks).

Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals # 15Did you miss the series? I have missed it too, but I thought it would be a good idea to have a break from it until I found some inspiration again. You guys never stop to amaze me, I get new and fresh works, journals and tutorials in my inbox every day, and now I thought I should share it with you. First some news from DA's fractal corner.
raysheaf is planning a tutorial on how to make realistic shapes using concentric circles in UF. Be sure to add him to your watch list if you want this tutorial in your inbox! http://fav.me/d4t8eug
Light has challenged Chiara with this one: and I think it's a great idea! It's not like the usual parameter pongs, but a co-operation between two artists with different styles, where the result shows off each artist's style. Just imagine Leichenengel's colourful psychedelic style with :devjimpan73: metallic spirals and shiny gems. Or LeonieZurakowsky's colourful plastic mandelbulb shapes with kr0mat1k's quirky metallic bul
FFF series issue 13You wonder what's with the weird title? Yep, I thought I should submit with sta.sh instead of my journal, and of course, it was the famous 30 character limit again. Nevermind, I've heard that it will change soon. I'm back again with the series. And from now on, the series will come out semimonthly instead of each week. It gives me more time to dig up new goodies and collect resources and news. And you'll not be tired of the squirrel and her instant chattering. At least I hope so The fractal artists here never disappoint, it's a constant stream of lovely beauties into the fractal gallery. Let us dive into them, shall we?

Regarding CopyrightsIn light of all the problems people are having with other sites taking our fractals and using them as they see fit...i have put together some information...
The best advice in this post is: If you need legal counsel, then seek it. Don't get it from the internet or this post. Hire professionals who do it for a living, and for the love of god, don't defend yourself in court.
you all know i am not very technical so this is gonna be pretty rough at best but this is what i do if i find my art somewhere i don't want it.......
the first thing i do is contact the person displaying it and advise them all my images are copyright protected and please remove it....
then i wait a few days...
if the image is still there then i send the site an email with this form.....keeping things professional at this point is a must...and just sending an email asking them to remove the image will not work......here is the form i use

About the exhibitionHello guys. How are you? hope you are all okay.
Well, um, as you already know, there was a fractal exhibition and workshop last week here in Indonesia and i was asking you guys to participate. so, i'm here to talk about how's the event going.
First of, it was not as i was expected, in the mean of number of guess that come to the workshop. on the facebook event page, the confirmed participant was around 60 person. But it was only around 10 persons who really come to the workshop. it was not as i expected, but it still good because those 10 persons is really excited about fractal art and want to know more about it.
On the workshop session, killythirsk was explaining about the history of fractals, what is fractal, and fractal in our everyday life. Me, i was doing a tutorial on my session. I show them how to make a grand-julian and julian-rings2 fractal with apophysis. It was very strange and fun at the same time. It feels strange and funny because i have to talk about transform
The F Word: Interview With f--l--A--r--kThe F Word
Interview with f--l--A--r--k
Welcome to another edition of The F Word. On this edition, i have an interview with the initiator of Apophysis Challenge, the one and only f--l--A--r--k. Please enjoy my interview with him.
can you please introduce yourself?
I've been around on deviantArt for about 7 years now. My name is Stan and I'm an avid learner and artist. I freelance as a graphic designer and artist and have had the privilege of working on some very cool projects that use my fractal artwork.
What is the first thing that makes you attracted to Fractal Art?
I love the depth of fractals. The unlimited potential really appeals to me. You could take one formula, study it, explore it for years, and still not see absolutely everything there is to see. With all the variables available fractals are a constant discovery.
Fractal Features - January FIRST, SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT...
how many fractal artists are there here at DA and how many worldwide?
is someone using (or have interest in) fractals in professional life (except making tools for us) or some art-unrelated form?
how does awareness of art being fractal change (raise) perception and appreciation?
SPECIAL SELECTION: beautiful 3d fractal scenes
by carlx is really fascinating with its clean design and peaceful setting, in an impeccable composition.
by Len1 reminds me of an illustration for a dark fantasy novel, with great attention given to both design and atmosphere.
by Forgot-my-pen is a beautiful and really creative manipulation with a nice touch of surrealism.
by LeonieZurakowsky shows great depth, intense colors and a very dynamic composition.
by Ectoplaz shows us the wonders and the great express
