Galleries month


A fractal is a never ending pattern, self similar on every scale. Or almost self similar. And, quite obviously, fractal art is art created with fractals :dummy:

Fractal art is not drawn or painted by hand, but created with fractal generating software (for example, Apophysis, Mandelbulb or Ultra Fractal). Basically, it is created by calculating fractal objects and rendering them as still images or animations. The rendered images can be further modified using other graphic programs, such as Photoshop or Gimp. Also, the artwork may incorporate some non-fractal images, mainly but not only in manipulations.

Raw Fractals


This gallery is for fractal artworks with minimal or no post-work other than title, frame and watermark. In a few words, only works that are either raw output from a fractal generating program or have some minimal post-work (for example, brightness and color adjustments).

Fractal Manipulations


Fractal Manips gallery contains fractal artworks with heavy post-work, editing or addition of non-fractal elements. If you combined two or more fractals into one or added a fractal to your photograph, this is the right place for your artwork.

Fractal Animations


While other 2 galleries are meant for still images, this gallery is for animations: animated artworks created in fractal software or other digital means, that contain mostly fractal elements.

I love fractals. My mentor told me about them, and I've loved them ever since.

I wish I could, but unfortunately I don't have a computer to do it. I also don't know how exactly to make fractal art, but I would love to learn. :)

hmmm dunno... pretty much any computer handles it at some level
i honestly use a laptop (which is bad but does the job)
we got a bunch of tutorials around DA, and also a chat about fractals and fractal art: chat.deviantart.com/chat/aposh… (active pretty much all time) so learning is not tricky

Sure. I'll check it out. Thanks. I'll start doing it once I can get my hands on my own computer.

You could use JWildfire, it also works very fine on Mac. You may visit my profile page or the official page for more details. JWildfire.org

Best regards,

Thank you! I appreciate the information and went to your site and read your journal. Will check out JWildfire but regardless of what I get I need a whole lot of tutorials to know what I'm doing!

Fractal manipulations : "added a fractal to your photograph" I feel this strange about that, I would have put the deviation in mixed media :bucktooth:

What about fractal art in which a background or element created in another fractal program has been brought into and rendered from the first fractal program - i.e. Created main fractal in MB3D and brought into it, and rendered from it, a fractal background from UF?  This to my mind is still all RAW fractal because it is all fractal?

I'm not sure why the term RAW (a photographic term for a totally uncompressed, unaltered photo in a format that requires suitable software to see it, let alone change it) is applied to fractals in any case..

tatasz Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2014
Yeah its tricky... I´d vote for that to be raw, after all the fractal stuff was not edited..
Honestly, id keep 2 categories basically: animations and everything else. But unfortunately, a decision like this would produce major annoyance in a significant part of the community, that wants more, not less categories

AnnaKirsten Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2014   General Artist
Ugh!  I remember this particular categorisation starting and never did really agree with it.  A real purism..  Photos and other stuff being incorporated into a fractal program I can understand as manipulation, because they are different media and created in other ways.

I guess for now we need to  simply use our discretion and perhaps not be too legalistic...

yeah :nod:
i mostly go by selfclassification. if the artist thinks its a manip, his business. Unless its really outrageously miscatted

I could talk about this topic an entire day and still I'd have doubts on the differentiations. :lmao:

:rofl: yeah, manip is tricky =D
A rule of the thumb is, imho, "if you are not sure its raw, its manip" :dummy:
