Songs from a Broken World by Sinspunkt

Songs from A Broken World by :iconsinspunkt:

An original and dynamic piece, contemporary and choc full of interesting little details.  An eloquent title, both thought provoking and rhetorical.  Read into this piece what you may it will always fit.



150722i20f by MadFractalist

150722i20f by :iconmadfractalist:

Christian Isnardi hails from Austria.  He has been on DA for 6 years and works in just about every fractal generating software going.
This piece was manipulated in Art Rage - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ArtRage and has distinctive fractal like qualities.  Nice fluid forms.

spring 3 by Oxnot

spring 3 by :iconoxnot:  A pretty and delicate composition in MB3D that looks like a jewellery set.  I'd like those earrings!



Vintagebrot by :iconstottyk:

Karen has had a DA account for a number of years but, unlike some of us, doesn't use it a great deal.  This piece - a UF minibrot shows off her aptitude for colour and composition.

Potato Thrills by rxgrafix


Potato Thrills by :iconrxgrafix:

 Eric hails from France so I do hope he won't mind my English Giggle .  An enigmatic title and I have no idea what it means.  Yet if you view this piece from a distance you may well see what I see.  The piece is full of pathos.  In the foreground a tortured, twisted skeletal form.  In a spasm of agony it arches its back.  In the background a nightmarish machine trundles ponderously towards it - cleaning up perhaps!

Don't forget to enter our current challenge  Flower Festival 2015Hi all  Flower 
For the months of July into early September we are running a Flowers Challenge. We know that many of you enjoy making this type of fractal and hope that lots of you will take the time to make something pretty. Flowers can be generated in most if not all fractal software.  For instance Ultra Fractal, Apophysis and Mandelbuld 3D maybe Incendia and Chaotica, Frax even.  I don't have user knowledge of a lot of fractal software so will be guided by you, but please.... no manipulations.  Show off you skills with Raw Fractals.  I guess an exception would be Light Maps used for colour and with DIFS.
UF users might want to explore the flower shapes in RKB.ulb, though I know there are lots of other ways to make flowers. and if any one knows a good tut for Apo flowers then do leave us a comment and I'll add it to the detailsFlower Bullet (DarkTurq) - F2U!

Happy fractalling folks!

Well! - I am sure you all know about that thieving bitch Zelda Kurowski by now.  Her account has now been taken down but the links are still there if you search Google.  Apparently Google are now obliged to remove any links of this sort by law so anyone affected might want to ensure all links are well and truly broken!

Sim Jux by Hatshj

Sim Jux by :iconhatshj:

I'm kicking off today's feature with a software program that seems to be trending of late and a member who has been around for a couple of years and I only just met yesterday :D   Hubertus does a lot of photography and works in various fractal software.  He has some very competent MB3D pieces in his gallery and seems to have experimented extensively with J Wilfire.  This pretty piece is made in JUX 

Great Things by MissyGainer

Great Things by :iconmissygainer:  

So much colour and detail in this one.  Everywhere you look another bit of intricate patterning emerges.  Each area or section has its own particular appeal, pattern and colour.  My favourite part? - the purple area bottom left!
What's yours?


Chrystal tweak by MikeDoran

Chrystal Tweak by :iconmikedoran:

Lots to keep your interest here.  Good tonal values with great contrast and variety of shapes ranging from warm, flowing, liquid to tightly woven geometric in the centre.



Jousting by Les-Monts

Jousting by :iconles-monts:

Beautiful fine detail in this piece.  Enhanced by being in monotone.  Nicely composed to give maximum coverage and interest.  I feel the need to zoom those murky little areas in the middle and bottom right.

Lazarus ... by Tranekaer

Lazarus by :icontranekaer:

Raw or manip this is a fine piece of engineering.  Lots of fine detail carefully enhanced.  If I recall rightly Lazurus was brought back to life by Jesus of Nazareth and became one of the undead, condemned to walk the earth forever.  For a tongue in cheek modern take see - mirror.uncyc.org/wiki/Lazarus

Digital Art is my winter hobby. At the moment I have an enduring passion for Fractal Art
****Meadow Sweet by GrannyOggSacre Verde by GrannyOggCy Generalised Durbi Practice 1 by GrannyOgg***
In the summer I build things. I have just built a chicken run at the back of my garden. I lost two chickens to a big brindle backed male fox. during the winter. My son bought me another one for mother's day. She is a Mille Fleur Bantam and we have named her Vienna. Sun Dance hatched six eggs in late May so I am extending their sleeping and laying boxes.
*****Scruffy by GrannyOgg********************* Fluffy by GrannyOgg****
I have built a large wooden raised strawberry bed out of decking. Summer was late here in England. We had months of rain in the winter and now the ground is dust dry!
