~ Awarded a Daily Deviation on December 20th, 2011 ~
Big time "thank you"s for Misha (aka OutsideFate) for the deviation suggestion! It was a very welcome surprise. Lots of hugs for you, man.
|A short peek at the best of my gallery, which includes both prize-awarding deviations and popular deviations in general. Have fun, and be sure to look into my gallery for more!|
|I decided to dedicate a little room to the DDs I suggested so far, which were accepted. I hope you'll like the initiative and love these works as much as I do.|
Accepted DD suggestions so far: 45
Latest accepted DD suggestion: August 1st, 2014
I keep suggesting regularly, so expect this number to grow soon.
|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.
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
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.
|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!
