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!

2016 - 57 by iSubmit

2016-57 by :iconisubmit:  

Marking his 1000th's entry Mark has produced this wonderful spiral of colour and shapes.  Like a cockatoo spreading it's wings and raising it's crest feathers.

Broken Filigrees Chain by mario837

Broken Filigrees Chain by :iconmario837:  

Put the children on the little swings then whirl them round faster and faster.  See how high they go!  Going to the fair as a kid, I always thought this kind of ride was a bit tame, preferring the big dipper or the cake walk.  But then as you went faster and faster you would rise higher and higher and you could see out and over the rooftops, and you knew that this was how it felt to fly!

Fiery Flower Spiral by wolfepaw

Fiery Flower Spiral by :iconwolfepaw:

Exuberant blooms created in JWildfire.  Peggi loves to create in all the colours of the rainbow.  You can look but don't touch - this flaming flower is hot!

3d Water Wallpaper by Imre-B

3d Water Wallpaper by :iconimre-b:

Phew!, after all that heat we need some water to cool us off.  Imre hails from Hungary and has been on DA for 3 years.  I don't think he has much English.  Created in Incendia Ex and manipulated in GIMP.

MB3D Parameters by peinturealuile

MB3D Parameters by :iconpeinturealuile:

For all you MB3D tweakers out there Jo has shared a six pack.  So lets get working out!

Well of Dreams by jayaprime

Well of Dreams by :iconjayaprime:

Being a purist I normally avoid these Deep Dream manips but this one has a particular painterly quality.  Deep dream images are largely accidental and ones over which the user exercises no control.  This one is accidentally interesting.  Jaya  says of himself "I make worlds - Worlds that pull in the eye and leave the mind asking questions; where mystery and the enigma hold power, where symbols define the lines that the colors follow".

What is in my Coffee by Thelma1

What is in my Coffee by :iconthelma1:

Thelma has been uploading her works to DA for 11 years now but she says, in a rant on her profile about the hike in membership fees "
I can't see me being able to afford the new hefty price for a further membership, I'm an old-age-pensioner for Gods sake, and live on a measly state pension.  Doesn't DA know that old people and artists are mainly POOR ??"  Well said Thelma, my sentiments entirely!  This little sticker in her comments must be pertinent to many of us hear: OBITS and COFFEE by bls35mm. though in my case its tea Sherlockian Teacup 

Feed Me by Meatloaf-DH

Feed Me by :iconmeatloaf-dh:  

What's amasing about DA is that you can be hear for years and never see the works of other fractal artists.. I thought Javier was a newbie but then I visited his profile duh!  Javier was here before my time and hasn't used his account for a number of years, but now he is back and producing some very individual pieces.  Welcome to the *Fractal* community Javier!

Old Boy by FractalFuzz

Old Boy by :iconfractalfuzz:

I would like to extend a warm welcome to Louise Wagstaff who joined DA just 2 weeks ago.  She has been using UF for a number of years and I recall using one of her tutorials from UTube when I first started with the program.  She told me she lost all her work and is having to start again.  Many of us can relate to that!

Asurfmoda tigris by elminino

AsurfmodTigris by :iconelminino:

Enchanting little shoots from Iago, who hails from Spain.  A promise of Spring around the corner, though here in the UK my bulbs are already up amongst the mud and mire and providing fodder for my little rabbit and my chickens!

Strange phenomenon in knitting format by GLO-HE

Strange Phenomenon in Knitting Format by :iconglo-he:

An amusing title from Gloria and an interesting piece.  Now how does it go....K1 p2 ...... anyone got a pattern for whellies!

Mandelbulb rings points splash mosaik marmor stone by Amtsgerichtbielefeld

Mandelbulb rings points splash mosaik marmor stone by :iconamtsgerichtbielefeld:

Udo hails from Germany and has been with us for one year.  He has made a whole series of these unusual pieces in MB3D.  I am not even going to try with the title.
Intriguing designs reminiscent of UF.

CrazyEuler - MB3D - 456 by CrazyEuler

Crazy Euler - MB3D - 456 by :iconcrazyeuler:

If any of you have tried using a colour map on this type of MB3D fractal you will know how easy it is to overdo it and end up with something crazy.  In this one Sinisa and Dana have managed to retain the distinctive shapes whilst adding lashings of colour.  The central sphere on its little ornate legs is particularly eye catching.
