What are these UF challenges?
How do challenges work and how can I participate?
Can I help promoting the challenges in some way?
What if I have an idea for a future challenge?

You can find all this information and more in the Ultra Fractal challenges FAQ, which is also part of our very first UF challenge, the one for February 2011.
If you already know the rules, then you're good to go - read on for this month's challenge!

Previous editions:

You can find all of the previous challenges in this journal. Please keep in mind that the challenge rules changed after the 26th edition!

Links to ALL UF challenges (updated periodically!)Since the UF challenges are growing in number, instead of linking them all in each new one, I thought I'd make a collection journal for all of them. This will contain all challenges held so far, from the newest (top) to the oldest (bottom), all conveniently thumbed for you! It will also be updated each month so that ALL challenges are reachable from here, even the newer ones. And this journal will of course be linked in every challenge, to keep them all connected :aww:

Now we can go on with the last challenge's results, and then I will introduce this month's challenge to you all.

Here is the June challenge, and the deviations I've picked as the winners!
(Please note: do not feel offended if your fractals haven't been picked. Winners are chosen basing on their way of representing the challenge theme, and I always try to be as impartial as possible while judging.)

The winner of the Formula challenge is aartika-fractal-art with Mosaic Table:

Mosaic Table by aartika-fractal-art

The wonderful, glassy watercolours gently guide the eye of the observer and lull it through the long journey to the core of the spiral. A really impressive work, even more so due to its nature and being completely Standard-free, meaning much of this spiral structure is likely unconventional in formulae and arrangement. Great work.

The winner of the Theme challenge is Gerda1946 with Cyclops:

Redux - Cyclops by Gerda1946

A perfect fractal for summer, sliced in red and green leafy bits. The motion draws the viewer towards its center, the veritable eye of the spiral, which appears as though it is staring right back.

The winner of the Style challenge is Lupsiberg with Water-Gnarly:

UF-Chall 53 - Water-Gnarly by Lupsiberg

Nothing like a cruise in what seems to be a lakeside cave, much like a boat trip on the Danube! The heart shape only helps with thinking back to the Eastern European river and its romantic fame. Very well done!

All other entrants deserve a feature just the same, so here they are for you to see!

We're done for June. On to July!

Ultra Fractal monthly challenges Redux

Challenge #54: July 2015

July's Formula challenge will be the Orbit Traps challenge!
Any fractal entering this challenge must use the Orbit Traps (UF3) algorithm in dmj3.ucl EXCLUSIVELY as the colouring algorithm. You can use "None" Inside if you use OT3 Outside, and vice versa, but one between Inside and Outside colouring must always be OT3, on all layers. You can texture and colour well with this algorithm, because it is very versatile - and this is the perfect opportunity to get better acquaintained with it!

July's Style challenge will be the Landscape challenge!
Simple as is, in this challenge you will have to portray a landscape with a fractal. It can be any sort of landscape, from urban to rural, from realistic to fantastic. What matters, of course, is that it is recognisable as one. Be creative and produce something amazing!

July's Other challenge will be the Seeing Red challenge!
In this challenge, you may only enter fractals that look red, AND use red or other similar shades in their gradients, on every layer. Greyscale is allowed, but no yellow, green, blue, or other colours. You can, however, use as many shades of red as you please, including those bordering on brown, orange, and pink.

Remember: to enter each challenge, post your deviation's link and thumb in a comment of this journal, and specify which challenge you are entering the fractal in. ALSO: PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LINK THIS NEWS ARTICLE IN THE DEVIATION!

Please spread the word by advertising this news article - we definitely want more participants. The more, the merrier!

This challenge's deadline is July 31st, 2015. Ready, set, GO!!! :eager:


Silver Clarke
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
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

You also have the option to donate to my Patreon account.

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.

Important Notice


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!
