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 !!!

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

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

My new DD Love & Inspiration Stn - grinagogOMG !! OMG !! OMG!!! This is gotta be the best DD surprise eveeeeeeeeeeeeeeer
Light, our fractal gallery cv - gave me a beautiful loving gift I did not expected - my HEARTS DD !!!
and it came on Valentine day, this is amazing & Im very touched ....and I was nearly in tears when I saw it !!
Thank you :iconn8iveattitude1: and thank you to ALL who always show me tons of love via comments & notes, this
DD is as much for you as is for me
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).
My 4 years on dAYEY !!! I turned nice round four on sept.04 - four years on deviantart
and this is my bash happy feature to say thank you to ALL for always being so supportive, fun & fantabulous

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
Fantastic Fractalicious Fractals issue 14The first issue of this year! This time I want to present some of the coolest fractals from 2011, it was really difficult to pick out some faves of the year, you are too good!!! But first, a short resume of last year's happenings.
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!

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

What is fractal art for you? - An honest responseWaddup guys!
I've been silent on several things going on in the fractal community for a while and I honestly don't regret it. But I think I do have a thing or two to say too. Especially after there has been a little stir-up with this article:
I've been reading it closely and it essentially right. However, I certainly don't agree with the opinions of a few people. Yeah, I know. I mostly don't agree with the opinions of most people but is it wrong to doubt?
Let me put one thing straight first before anything wrong raises up: I don't give a walking damn about how you make your fractal art. I don't care what techniques you use, how you approach on it, what resources you use or not use and especially what software you use. I emphasize the last point especially because I do have the feeling that people think I'm sort of biased to Apophysis. I AM NOT. Apophysis is a fun project to me as Chaotica, UltraFractal, Incendia or Mandelbulber are to other
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 !!
Volpi.You will find that the story you tell
is very rarely your own. In Lucca,
even the smallest pebbles
breathe in the warm sunlight.
Knotted stones and cobbled roads
beat out a paper-dry heartbeat heat
my city breathes in and out,
inhales sparrow air.
It's writing a story.
You are the pen.
You will find that in Lucca
the daisy chains forge fire
in side streets and back alleys.
Teenagers intertwine. Tell me,
odd flower, are you still closed?
Here we are colored wax;
the heat of the city melts us.
We run into each other, rhapsody
of pigments. Operas are our specialties.
Open up; feel the reds.
If not, try and see them. There is a place
of deep knife marks, a street
long as midnight
you may learn something there.
Valentina's voice glimmers like red wine.
You may enjoy intoxications. Still,
know alcohol has no story
and will swallow your own.
Find the sign with the wolf on it.
You'll know the place. Epiphanies ring true as church-bells.
Lucca still guides the wanderers
to well sp
