Contest: Fractaling by Zyndara Best of Both Worlds: Back to Fractal Class!

Fractals and Resources are two galleries that get crap about "not being art," so we thought it would be cool to team up for a contest to prove those people wrong!

In this contest, you will be provided with three tutorials from the Fractal Resources Gallery. (See rules below.) Use one or more of these tutorials for a chance to win! It's the Best of Both Worlds (resources and fractal art!) to offer an amazing Fractal class!

Not sure what fractal art is? Click this thumbnail for a short lesson about the meaning of the word "fractal"...


Then join our contest to teach yourself a whole new kind of art, or participate as a way to brush up on old skills! All skill levels are welcome to enter!

This is wonderful. I tried to teach myself how to use Apophysis. I managed to created interesting things, but I would like to know how to do something more consistent. This is a great way to pick up where I left off, contest or not. :)

It looks like my entry is going to be way different than the other ones ; )

I'm surprised no one took the tack I followed.

I have really enjoyed this contest. I have learned so much from the UF tutorial. I had no idea what low Iter. could produce. The best part is the render time is minutes instead of hours. Low Iter. to UF is like zoom out to Apo. Thank you all! :sing:

Is any postwork allowed, other than levels or sharpness, like blurring, or painting some edges to crisp things up? Or does it have to be exactly as it comes out of the fractal program?

postwork allowed, sure :) and manipulations too, as long as the fractal remains the most important subject of the artwork ;)

Question how much does it have to look like the original tutorial,. or how much can we add or subtract from it? Or even just use the principles in a completly different way?

Well, as long as the origin from the tutorial is quite clear and plain, originality, creativity and personal interpretation are most welcome ;) (at least for me :) )

Is there a particular group who is holding this contest or is it kind of floating around out there? I can link to this article and put it in the description of my submissions, but where are the entries going - to a group or a person?

Just wanted to be sure I got the information correct.

ok, this looks really good! :drool: But I'd like to know how much are we allowed to deviate from those tutorials. I'm interested in the UF one. So let's say... can I use outside coloring instead inside coloring? Can I add layers with other formulas than the ones mentioned in the tutorial? Any other kind of limits?

So wait, we make a tutorial using those tutorials for creating a work of fractal art or just use those tutorials to create a work of art (provided for both params/flames are provided when asked) ? o__O

We make a fractal using those tutorials. But it can be manipulated using anything in the resource gallery.
