Latest accepted DD suggestion: August 1st, 2014

I keep suggesting regularly, so expect this number to grow soon. :D

Donate

heavenriver has started a donation pool!
5,738 / 1,000,000
After a long while and lots of savings I'm finally raising funds to buy some deviantWEAR. Together with the Points I've earned from winning contests or received from fellow deviants, and a few dollars coming from my sold prints, I should be able to pack up enough money for a shirt or two.

Some samples of my commissioned works:

Of course I'm not expecting to reach a million! I just put a huge number there for convenience.
I'll make my purchase as soon as I gather enough funds. Those who donate 500 Points or more at a time may request a fractal commission from me, so long as the complexity of the artwork is adequate to the donation amount. Contact me privately for details.

Thank you for reading this, and thanks to all donors in advance! And if you're unable to donate for some reason, I will still happily take a llama and give you one back. :aww:

You must be logged in to donate.

My deviantART story

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 7, 2014, 3:34 AM


(Oh boy, dA is 14 already? I'm nearly 22... I feel so young in comparison to a website O_O)

Where to begin? I originally wanted to be on deviantART to create a collection of my favourite Pokémon fan art. And these are just SOME of the many examples, which I remember seeing before coming here.

Manectric Making a Storm by akelataka Alakazam by MetalReaper 

At some point, I started posting fan art of my own.

Eeveelutions by heavenriver Wherever Thunder May Roam by heavenriver

(No, I am absolutely not biased towards Manectric, why would you ask)
And I thought it was set, and I'd definitely keep on going with the Pokémon theme forever and ever.

I couldn't have been more wrong.

One day, I found a deviation. I forget what the name was. I wish I could google it or browse for it and include it in this journal, but I haven't been able to track it back in all these years. All I remember was that I really loved it, it looked fantastic, and all it had in the description was "Apophysis 2.09b".
And I thought, "what's that?"
I figured it was the program the user had employed while making that artwork. I googled it and came to the Apophysis website. I downloaded version 2.02 of the program, and I made this.

Arrow by heavenriver

I think many of the old works I made are really not that great, but I still feel attached to Arrow. It still looks as amazing as it looked four whole years ago, when I hit the "Render" button.

I dabbled with Apophysis for about three months, and all in the while I couldn't help but marvel at the beautiful works that people made with "Ultra Fractal".

I decided I would eventually get the program for myself and try it out.

I did.

It took a long time, a really long time, but I finally started making things I enjoyed and that made me proud of my own artistic exploits.

I found people I look up to a lot, artistically speaking!

Gossamer Fragments by OutsideFate Silk by OutsideFate

 Melodies of Life by OutsideFate

Endless endings - winter by LeXXe Hollow by LeXXe Fatal desire by LeXXe

 

Hollow by LeXXe Sunset Lullaby by lindelokse Not Here by lindelokse Frost by lindelokse 

...Not to mention friends! :D

And I also started one of the most satisfying community projects ever.

Ultra Fractal monthly Challenges Redux!Apophysis challenges have been hosted for more than a year by f--l--A--r--k, with much success and participation from the fractal community. Following his example, Fractal-Explorer started a series of challenges for the aforementioned program; though still relatively new, they're faring very well too. But what about Ultra Fractal, one of the most used and versatile fractal programs? Since when Ultra-Fractal's monthly challenges have been put on hiatus, nothing has been done to replace them up to date. So what about doing something now? Here's my project: Ultra Fractal monthly Challenges - Redux!
Let's do things orderly and methodically.
This first news article will contain general information about my UF challenges project, how to participate, how to suggest, and what's it all about. After the general news, this month's challenge will be written down. Stay tuned and read on!
So, what are these UF challenges?
Challenges for Ultra Fractal, of course. E


I suggested plenty of DDs over the years, and I was so happy they got accepted - both because it means I have an eye as an artist, and because I bet the people who got them were really happy too.

O No Sluggo ! by parrotdolphin Eye Of The Storm II by LithMyathar Depth by ChristopherPayne Chocorose by fanficbug

Wow... now that I pinned it all down, it looks like a huge lot of work for someone who's been here almost five years.

And what more is there to come?

Time will tell, I'm sure!

Journal History

Silver Clarke
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Italy
My name is Silver and I am an Italian fractal art amateur. I discovered the fractal world on December 31st, 2009, date of my first Apophysis creation, and then began working with Ultra Fractal on March 3rd, 2010. I have tried different fractal generators ever since, but my preference goes to the first two: to Apophysis for my affectionate remembrances of it, and to Ultra Fractal for its infinite artistic possibilities. I wish to get ever better in fractal art and widen my knowledge on that particular field.

I recently started commercializing my creations over the web. Besides the deviantART network, I also showcase my fractals and sell related products of many kinds on various sites. Here's the full list of web places I expose my creations at:
My Facebook page
My RedBubble store
My CafePress store
My art-related Tumblr


On a more personal note, I am currently attending courses at a computer science and engineering university, more precisely at La Sapienza university of Rome. I expect to get my Bachelor's degree by summer/autumn 2014 and then start my Master's.

If you wish to know more about me, you can visit my website for a more accurate biography. Else, feel free to ask me anything you want by sending me a Note: I can speak Italian, English, French and Spanish.

Current residence: Rome, Italy
Favourite genre of music: alternative rock, post-rock, indie rock, viking/folk metal
Favourite style of art: Surrealism, Abstractism, Minimalism and Fractal Art
Operating system: Windows 7 Ultimate / Ubuntu 12.4 (Precise Pangolin)
Favourite cartoon character: L Lawliet (from Death Note)
Favourite quote: I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what we do with the gift of life that makes us who we are.
Interests

Important Notice

PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME GROUP REQUESTS. I WILL NOT JOIN YOUR GROUP.

This is because I am already part of many groups, and I don't want to spam my art around too much. If I am interested in a group, I will join it on my own free will, no invitation needed. You may send me a deviation submission request if you want one particular artwork of mine (or more) to be in your group, and I will consider it (no promises). Thanks!
