Sorry I haven't been on dA much lately, i've been caught up with posting on forums that I visit.
Yesterday I went around and commented on all or most of your works and i'm pleased to say that you are all improving! The community's work as a whole just keeps getting better and better.
I also just uploaded 8 new fractals, which aren't really that new, but they're the next series of images that I needed to post. I'll try to be better organized with updating in the future.
Now to my rant:
Recently there has been a rupture in the "human societal maturity" of the apophysis community. You may or may not know who did it, or who it was aimed at, but what was done was done. What happened was childish, rude, and what is happening is very immature to other apophysis artists.
The moral of the story: Don't rip work, give credit where credit is due, and don't act rude to someone who is trying to help you.
Now, my predicament:
I've noticed that many apophysis artists tag or watermark their images. This is to prevent ripping and while it hasn't happened to me yet, I am debating whether or not to do so.
I like to keep every piece of digital art that I create clean, so I don't really want to put any text or frames on normal pieces (I put them on ones I deem as "special").
And now my feature:
As you may have noticed, my homepage and button have changed. This is because (while not mandatory) it may help my friend's site with activity. Currently she runs nervonline.net, an anime forum, and while she didn't ask me to do it, I know that she is paying the costs of the vbulletin forum on her own, and there are few members. So if you are into that kind of thing, go check it out.
Now, my featured artist today is a friend that I got to know 2 years ago:
is someone who I helped get into Apophysis and while he still refuses my style of flame creation, he's branched out into his own style. So, go check him out, and keep in mind, what you see in his gallery are his fractals that he's made from the start - no cutting out the early learning curve fractals, because he didn't have much of a learning curve.
