Quick'n'Dirty: Reflections and TransparencyFractal Art WeekSabine62
Note: these are not the holy grail settings for reflections and transparency. They are what this is called: a quick and dirty approach for those who (like me for a long long time) need a place to start and experiment from. All in here is based on what I found out myself or what I was pointed to by kind fellow DA-members. If you find fault with it, have additional tips or whatever, please drop me a note Also, please remember, I am not a native speaker. Either ignore spelling- and/or grammar-mistakes or (even better!) point me to them if you like!
Errmm... Maybe it's not such a Quick tutorial after all... :}

Structured IFS Fractals - Basic ElementsFractal Art Weektatasz
This article is about structred IFS fractals - basically, stuff made with Apophysis, Chaotica, and other similar software. Those aren't formal names of the things - just a little system that makes things easier for me.
A structured fractal is basically composed of main structure (framework), fillers and effects.
This decomposition, of course, is not universal and not even unique (one may see a transform as filler, while another as framework, for example).
This is the transforms or a group of transforms that create the main shapes of your fractal. Removing or replacing one of those transforms with something else will change drastically the looks of the work. Many frameworks have emtpy areas to be filled with fillers .
While some frameworks people use are quite hard to figure out (those are few though, since there are not many people able to find their own original crazy structures), other are common, explained in many tutorials, fe

#1: READ THE GUIDELINES
Before you suggest a piece as a Daily Deviation to a Community Volunteer you must know their Guidelines! All guideline listed in Kaz-D article are different from each other because of the Community Volunteers different experiences, common gallery issues, and personal preferences.

Silver Soldering ToolsArtist's ToolboxAryiea
Silver soldering is one of many different types of soldering, and is a commonly used technique in jewelry-making. There are many different tools that can be used for silver soldering - I will go over the basic tools that I use in my soldering endeavors, but there are certainly a lot more than I will be able to cover in this article!
The first and most obvious "tool" in silver soldering is the solder itself. Silver solder is just that - it is silver alloys that are specifically created to melt at certain temperatures in order to be perfect for varying soldering jobs. The silver solder that I use comes in sheets & is cut into small chips in order to be used. There are different 'levels,' if you will, of solder - most commonly called Hard, Medium, Easy (and I sometimes use Extra Easy).
The difference between the 'levels' is the temperature at which they each melt. Hard solder melts at the hottest temperature, and Extra Easy at th
I'm a hobbyist and developing artist. The bulk of my work involves creating 3D images in D|S4Pro and using digital painting plus other post-working techniques in attempts to create a style which is a mixture of painterly and photo-realistic. I started out as a traditional artist prior to the dawn of digital art so painting is one of my greatest passions.
I prefer the male form and much of my work falls into the male/male romance and affection category, so be warned if this is not your thing. I also enjoy creating fantasy images and have a specific series related to my dorky D&D inspired campaign/story, The Auriellian Prophecy. While I do not consider myself a writer, I began this storyline for the purpose of challenging myself to take scenes from it and bring them to 3D life.
In addition, I enjoy creating digital seamless fabrics, some of which are for sale at YURdigital and some for free at Renderosity, along with a small selection of basic 3D objects which I've modeled & mapped using Wings3D. I have included the links below. Please feel free to have a browse at your leisure
Something important I would like to share here; I want to let everyone know that I rarely comment on images featuring the female form. Please take no offense. It is not you, nor your artwork; it's only me, something quite personal which I won't get into. When I do comment on any genre of artwork it is because I genuinely like it. I don't expect comments in return. If you genuinely like any of my images enough to comment or favorite, that just rocks my world and encourages me further
Since joining DA my skills sets and inspiration have sky-rocketed. I am overwhelmed by the enormous spectrum of talent here and also the vast offerings of shared knowledge and resources. I'm very happy to be a part of this community and hope to be able to contribute as much as I can. Contact me if you'd like to share & compare notes Constructive criticism is always welcome!
