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 !!
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 pt1INSPIRATION STATION pt1
Inspiration Station is a joined community effort - started up by our new 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.
So far we have Inspiration Station 'flash mob' journals for four first artists and they were warmly welcome by many viewers

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

~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.

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).

What happened last year?
Pretty lot! There have been fractal circles with tweaking fractals around, both in the group :#fractalcircles: and ponging parameters in :#aposhack: , Light `SuicideBySafetyPin introduced us for the Inspiration station, the fractal flash mob, a collective feature of different artists. *heavenriver has her UF challenge going on http://heavenriver.deviantart.com/journal/Ultra-Fractal-monthly-Challenges-Redux-Vol-12-277027446 and `f--l--A--r--k has his Apo challenge http://fav.me/d4l1fc6 and it would be great if we could keep up supporting them!

And fractals, what about fractals ? How did you discover them and start to create them ?

2011 BMFAC News UpdateBMFAC winners published in print magazine!
The 25 winners of the Benoit Mandelbrot Fractal Art Contest were contacted in mid February to supply large format files of their winning images and also a short bio explaining their interest in fractal art, software used and general information about their work if they chose to do so. We were also informed that the first exhibit would be held in Logroño, in Northern Spain. Javier Barrallo, a Professor of Mathematics at The University of the Basque Country, Spain and also one of the panelists for the BMFAC was our contact for this. The current exhibit will be in the Casa de la Ciencia (House of Science), in Logroño, the Capital city of RIOJA until June 10th. I'll post a few pictures Javier sent further down. Javier also says he will send more pictures soon.
Also when I was contacted in February, Javier informed me that he had written an article about the BMFAC for a Spanish scientific magazine with all the winning images i

In few words, Meet the Fractal Community is be a bi-monthly interview with an artist of our beloved fractal community.
This week let's have a closer look to `FarDareisMai !
First of all , please introduce yourself to the community.
My name is Jess, I'm 23 and I live in Montana, USA, and if you ever want to talk to me I hang out in :#Aposhack: a lot.
Tell me how to call you? Do you go by your Name or an artistic pseudonym?
My name is fine. A lot of people here call me Far, which is also perfectly fine. Either works for me.
How did you discover deviantART ?
As I recall, I was linked to it from a Wheel of Time fansite a very long time ago.
What is your earliest Artistic memory ?
Oh, this is a hard one. I've probably been drawing since I had the motor skill to hold a marker. When I wa
