I'd like to kick off this month's features with a special submission from
For those of you who are new to the t00b scene, Luc is the fractalist who first popularized the classic tube and wire style of fractalism at
I'm doubly honored because he has not only found time out from his busy schedule in the real world to submit this beautiful fractal to our gallery, but has dedicated this piece to our club! So please give him some
by checking out his submission
While you're at it, I highly recommend visiting his gallery if you want to see classic tube fractalism at it's finest!
I've culled some of my favorite designs from the tA devwatch to share them all with you. You'll notice that not all of these are classic tube and wire designs. Why? That's because I want to promote the tube/ribbon motif and not the means that you arrived at it. This is why we'll also feature and promote work done in UF, FE, Tierazon, XD, Incendia, you name it! Likewise, it doesn't matter if it is scripted, post-worked, jabbed,tweaked, poked, prodded, given a gentle nudge, or serenaded over a candlelit dinner. The only thing you'll need to do is tweak your flames to make them your own :someoneneedstomakeanocookiecuttersavatarto inserthere:
Well I'm sorry to say that my idea of getting you all to participate in helping me select a DD suggestion did not pan out in the end. The GMs informed me that they won't accept DD suggestions made in this way. In retrospect, I guess I should have checked with them first
Well live and learn I suppose. Needless to say that we won't be having anymore votes for DD suggestion in the future. I'll try to think of other ways that we can have fun here...
There's been some recent debate over the whole issue of using scripts to seed fractal flames. Naturally, I've been participating in some of these discussions. Here are some useful links to to orient you on the topic (well at least as far as I've been following it): news.deviantart.com/article/63…uncle-keeps.deviantart.com/jou…toapp.deviantart.com/journal/2…
Feel free to visit my own site to share your opinions with me...and it doesn't matter what side of this debate you're on, as long as you present your arguments in a respectful and constructive way. As a scripter I want to know how to improve the resources that I create. I can't do that when the people who have legitimate problems with these tools won't participate and share their insights with me...
