On a daily basis  at DailyFractalFeatures, we showcase a small selection of fractal artwork to the community.
You can show your support by dropping by regularly and commenting on the featured works. This group is for everyone and anyone who makes fractals. All fractal software welcome.
Do drop by and give your support to the fractal community.

Today (2nd October 2014 ) I chose to feature Apophysis fractals from the perspective of a non Apo user! Hope you like them!

Weird World by SjerZ
Weird World by :iconsjerz:

This fractal smacks of intrigue and mystery. The intorwoven brick like textures bring to mind deep caverns or underground sewers, dimly lit.  It's a sort of Neil Gaiman expose of "Neverwhere". Small quote: Beneath the streets of London there is another London. A subterranean labyrinth of sewers and abandoned tube stations. A somewhere that is Neverwhere.


Lepidopteran Confession - Pong #38 by LightBulbMoon

Lepidopteran by :iconlightbulbmoon:

 I digress! This one caught my eye last week and I had to look up the title. According to Wikipedia it's the collective genus name for butterflies and moths. You can see them here, wings outstretched. Like adornments of gothic architecture, busy doing what they do!

STARBIRTH by renderix

STARBIRTH by :iconrenderix:

OK - back to Apo - What happens when a star is born? According to Scientific American "All stars are the result of a balance of forces: the force of gravity compresses atoms in interstellar gas until the fusion reactions begin. And once the fusion reactions begin, they exert an outward pressure. As long as the inward force of gravity and the outward force generated by the fusion reactions are equal, the star remains stable".
Aptly titled this manip conveys the essence of this fusion of elements with both solid and gaseous forms interacting.


Something Fishy by parrotdolphin

Something Fishy by :iconparrotdolphin:

In the words of a commentator "a classy and amazing piece of art in it's own right". Framed in a gold frame and in the right setting this would make a wonderful piece of wall art

Romantic Succulent - Myrtillocactus by Escara40

Romantic Succulent - Myrtillocactus by :iconescara40:

My last piece is a fascinating (for us Europeans) photograph of  the naturally occurring fractal like forms of a mexican cactus. If you would like to know more about these beauties please see: www.google.co.uk/search?q=Myrt…
A nicely framed and clearly detailed piece.

I am starting to wonder if anyone is even watching over this group to make sure that everyone can do what they came here for before they just all up and leave and the group is no more......

I'm here but the overall person is not - I don't have the power to set up new folders or anything but I check the deviations etc. - I set up my own one so that I could avoid this - it's called #AbstractArtTogether if you're interested

No. No one would except for the person who started the group. Even if that person is deactivated. It's stupid. I have already talked to dA about this trying to take over another group that did not even have a founder/leader type over it. They just would not allow it. I do not know why they would not just deactivate the group or let someone else step up to take it if that is what they pleased. Thanks, I'll surely check out the other group. I appreciate it.
