8 Years in dA - My Story !Deviant since January 2006 !I have always been attracted to art and or images colourful and with beautiful shapes.Since I was about 5 yo I admired and loved the beautiful shapes that may be found in a kaleidoscope, of course when I saw a Fractal image it was love at first sight.Though I didn't subscribe to dA to do fractals I was part of a most interesting forum named "Utopia Graphics" we made all sorts of art, mainly photomanips on my part, and for some reason we had to post our work here in deviantart which is why I subscribed.deviantART was slightly older than a toddler when I joined it, 8 years ago. January 2006My first love in fractal art was by cabbie666 (his work was also my first in all categories ) I didn't know what program he used but it reunited all my favourite conditions, beautiful shape and colours.After reading a lot of material about fractal art I decided to dow
July - August Some News + Some DecisionsSeasons + Climate + DecisionsSo they are here (or there) again, Summer :iconsunglompplz: for the North and Winter for the South..For me, and being from Argentina it's a blessing, I am sorry though for those friends up North who are suffering a particularly fierce Summer..I totally H A T E Summer and feeling hot and sweatty, or should I say "dewy" ? :iconthinkingplz: But it's not news to anybody who knows me from way back..OK, Enough of weather chitchat !.Decisions I think you all dear and loyal friends, have heard enough excuses and apologies from me about my -always- late responses.Needless to say I am sorry for that, but without really suffering from depression, I do get periods of non-activity --I guess that being 74 sort of has something to do about it-- :iconnaughtygrandmaplz: so I end up with incredible amounts of Thank yous, and Comments in general that need responding. Not to mention th

April - Belated update and usual apologiesLots of LoveYes it is time to sadly express my usual apologies for very late and/or nonexistent responses to your nice and supportive comments I so wish I could honestly say that it will not happen again, but I know it will not be so. All I can say is that I'll do my best.Please forgive me I assure you though that I read and enjoy each and every one of your sweet comments and favouritesI am bringing a few of some of my favourite fractals as gifts for you, dear patient and faithful friends A short GET WELL Feature for JocelyneOur dear friend Jocelyne JocelyneR had a rather important accident and is successfully recuperating quite well.So here as a special GE
Tutorial - Animated Stamps - My WayI made it specially for fractal2cry who indicated to be interested in learning how to make stamps, but of course I welcome anyone who will find it useful to use it. Let me know if it was useful.In fact, rather than a Tutorial, I think this is an explanation of how I go about making animated stamps in Photoshop. It is assumed that the user has good knowledge of Photoshop tools and other features.This may not be the best or shortest way and neither the only way of course, but it's how it works for me.I use Photoshop CS4 (I think it's version 11)So, I open the program, load the images I will use for the stamp, resize them to the stamps measurements.The "official" size originally specified by dA was/is 99 x 56 px @ 72dpi so I set the size of my work at 99x56 and increase the resolution to 288dpi, that gives me a new working size or resolution of 396x225 px.Once I finish with the stamp I resize it either to the original specified dimensions or maybe reduce the

The world has changed over the last few decades in a very big way, but some are apparently unaware of it or undisturbed by the stunning ramifications.Advanced sur

These clever alterations are “doodles” and they are often created by guest artists.
Collection: Snowed InShare|ArchiveSnowed InThere is no more stark dichotomy than the conflicting feelings we have about the wintertime. Many find the snow–blanketed landscape makes winter the most serenely beautiful of the seasons. But people die of exposure in the cold. The idea of being “snowed in” evokes thoughts of fireplaces and hot chocolate and snuggling under piles of blankets, of family reunions and gift–giving, and taking an annual “time–out.”But it also means lost work hours and school days and danger should someone need to go to the hospital through white–out conditions on ice–glazed roads. Winter is the most beautiful but also the
