Criteria:icondigital-artists:Attention please also read: Submission Guidelines and Credit Guidelines Criteria. That word is used a lot here at digital-artists, so let's talk about it.The ever mysterious Criteria in our group. The bane to those of who have tried to submit, yet only left with a decline message signed "Criteria". As mysterious as the Whitechapel note signed "From Hell"Ever present yet unobtainable, like some secret code written of the Illuminati.Not quite... but a few have blown this criteria up to mythical urban legend proportions, and we need to deflate it a bit.We have had a lot of questions about this ever elusive and undefinable "Criteria" and for good reason, we never told anyone what it was. We never gave anyone a proper explanation of it in regards to the group submissions. It
Fractal ManipsFractal Manipulations - Deviantart has an entire fractal category devoted to them.DA defines a fractal manipulation as: "Fractal artwork that is created in fractal software generating programs or other digital means that combines two or more fractals to make an image; also, fractal artwork that contains heavy post-work, editing or non-fractal elements."It's a fractal that goes one extra step - there's something extra that makes it a manip - Below are a some extraordinary examples of the different types.Adding real elements to enhance the sceneAdding a real element is a technique that gives the viewer a non-fractal element to visually latch on to. It instantly grounds the image in the familiar and usually gives us, the viewer, a sense of scale. We can relate to the image - it isn't just a cool, geometric pattern or abstract, it contains a recognizable element.

Is dA and its Group system slowing dying out?Hello everyone! Before you read, please keep in mind that my intentions are not to blame, insult, criticize, or say anything harmful about anyone! The intentions of this feature if anything, is to motivate us all in improving the group system and dA as a whole! ALSO this is focused more largely on photography, digital art, and a few other mediums, but I don't claim to speak for the cases of other mediums and types of groups that I am not familiar with.EDIT: To make things clear, I don't believe dA or Groups will ever be "dead" in the sense of them not existing anymore, or members in both factions not existing either, I'm using "Death" more metaphorically perhaps, in saying that the way the group system is intended to be working, has been failing, and needs improving in order to not fail its purpose, and that dA needs to do something to strengthen the community sense and interactions between members both in groups and in the dA com

It strikes me with beauty in its curvaturesand delicate hues with glassy eye-like orbs graduating down to a solid base in harsher tones.

I NEED HELPERSedit. Added more details in the explanationBe patient and read everything. Tell me if sthg remains unclear as soon as you can.Dear friendsI am looking for a set of new sample params that will be included with the next Mb3d x2, that will be a formula update + a param update.You CAN CONTRIBUTE AND YOUR NICK will be in the param name.Resulting images must be elegant, incisive and clean, with a stepwidth of 0.5 to min 0.3! I will be very exigent with those requirements! Sample images are examples of elegance in my eyes.no decombines. (ALTERNATE MODE each formula can have any number of iterations 1 to 20, leave maxiter to 60 as it's fast to render). And no weird looking images. Remember the elegance rule, fractals are not random Use neutral colors. That means; not full hue ones, prefer those more grey-ish, in general. You always can use coloured lights (just not use all the colors in the spectrum at once if possible) - and you can use dynamic fog also AND any other option in postpr

Highlighting Ultra FractalFractal Art the Ultra Way!This is Fractal Week and so I would like to bring a little highlight to my own favourite program, Ultra Fractal.There was a time when this program was one of the most enjoyed fractal programs next to Apophysis, which was of course, free. UF has always come at a price, allbeit a relatively low one for a program as comprehensive as this. These days, people are flocking to the newer programs and I feel that UF is perhaps struggling to keep up with the times, although it does work perfectly well on Windows 8.1 as well as on Mac systems, last updated in October 2014. It has three versions, Express Edition comprising single layer for new users, Creative Edition incorporating layers, layer groups, masks and transformations, and Extended Version which includes animation and network calculations. It can be bought here http://www.ultrafractal.com/features.htmlAlthough this is no longer the latest in fractal prog
