Still working on some images for new css enriched journal... I'm so uninspired lately it's not funny.
I think I'm probably just over-stressing doing *good* stuff for my portfolio/real live art people to the point that I don't like anything and nothing's actually getting done.
I'm a little bit messed up on painkillers today and that usually helps when I'm messing around with UF though.
Oh, some good news, I sent a note to
back in June to suggest a Fractal resources section for the Resources gallery here on dA:
I am just sending this note to suggest a fractal art resources and tutorial section because I think it would be really helpful for the fractal community. As it is now we just have a few clubs that try to keep links for all of the fractal resources available on the site, having a fractal resource gallery would make things a lot easier for beginners who are trying to learn fractal art.
Thanks for your time and consideration.
I didn't get any reply so I thought it wasn't happening and forgot about it but I just noticed that since the tutorial gallery was restructured.... We now have our very own Fractal Tutorial gallery!
It's under Resources > Tutorials > Digital Art > Fractal Art so it takes a bit of digging but it's there!!! Here's the linky: [link]
that there's nothing in there right now, as a community we'll have to do something to change that.
Back to UF I go.... Any ideas?
Oh I almost forgot! has anyone else seen the documentary "Colours of Infinity" by Arthur C. Clarke (author of 2001: A Space Odyssey) ? I found a torrent and downloaded it, what a trip!
It's about fractal maths and features some amazing guitar by David Gilmour from Pink Floyd with some old fractal animations. It's about 10 years old so nearly all of the fractal stuff was that oldschool rainbow coloured escape time mset colour cycling animated stuff, kind of funny and very very trippy and still cool to this day.
If you haven't seen it and you like fractals, find it!
I found the DVD for it on amazon and it comes with a book too so I think I'm going to buy it.... [link]
also I think if you're new to fractals it gives a nice basic explanation of fractals and the math behind them... It does get a bit spacey or loopy in some parts talking about God and all that hippy stuff but otherwise it's pretty sound.
