First, timing. I originally meant this to be a bi-weekly feature, but unfortunately I do not think that will be possible. I am extremely overloaded with things to do. So, I'll try to write an issue as often as possible, but it will probably be irregular. Have no fear that you'll miss one, though; I'll always announce the new issue in the ~ImagersFractalDDs journal.
Second, thumbnails. The faq says I should use :bigthumb######:, but that isn't showing up in the preview. :thumb######: is showing up in the preview, but it did that last time too and still didn't show up in the article. So, to be safe, I am going to use both of them, as well as providing a link. Hopefully for the next Fractals, Fractals, Fractals I will not have to do this.
And now - fractals, fractals, fractals!
To Juliet by =ersi is a gorgeous fractal by an artist new to dA. The bold shapes, pastel colors, and breathtaking textures make this a don't miss.
Lepinski 21 by *PatGoltz is inspiration to every fractal artist who wants to make a fractal abstract. This is also an example of how to use bright, contrasting colors in a tasteful manner. Bravo, *PatGoltz!
An Attitude of Fortitude by `NatalieKelsey evokes connotations of standing strong and tall, and rising from the rubble. This is truly an aptly named fractal.
Untitled 5 by ~BrotherNumsi, by conveying a strong sense of motion, looks like a strobe photograph of a twirling skirt. It is a smooth, beautiful fractal!
Immersed by ~yaminohoshii has some incredibly smoooooth color blending. It simultaneously reminds me of the northern lights, a snake's head, and plant life. What do you see?
The Sunrise by `grubin is an extremely original fractal made in Apophysis. The bright golden shine is incredible, the composition unbeatable.
Tossed Around by `MichaelFaber is shapes within shapes withing shapes. It's a spiral made entirely of squares and straight lines, topped off with colors like contrasting fire and ice.
Accentuate by ~PimpcessTyna is a warm fractal of simple geometric shapes: lines and circles. It is also a visual ode the beauty in simplicity, cleanness, and purity.
Butterflies by ~Mignon defies the sterotype of rainbow colored fractals, and does so beautifully. The butterflies dispersed around the image echo the butterfly-like shapes in the image, and the subtle background, like antique wallpaper, makes everything seem that much more elegant.
That's all for this issue. Why don't you go show some love to the featured deviants - I think we all agree that the deserve it!
Until next time, keep on fractaling!
