If you're an affiliate of ours, please feel free to contact us to promote your contests and/or to feature your winners~

You can find Ultra-Fractal-Redux's new challenge here: November Challenge Part 2 - The Colour Tweakfest!Hello Again!
First of all, thank you for donating fractals to be tweaked for this challenge! We have more fractals to tweak than we hoped for and I think we can all agree that there is a nice variety, I can't wait to start tweaking some of these donations.
So onto the challenge..................
This month we will be concentrating on colours. The challenge is to pick up from the fractals in the  Donations Gallery and colour them as well as you can. You should not attempt to change the overall shapes of the fractal, just the colours. Remember that you can achieve the final look by merging layers, as well as defining a gradient for each individual layer.
The rules of the challenge are:
:bulletgreen: For each layer of the fractal you are only allowed to change the gradient. DO NOT touch the formula or the colouring tabs.
:bulletgreen: You are allowed to change "internal"


Check out BrightandCheerful's current theme here:
November Theme - Fractals and Digital Abstract
The Monthly Theme for November is
Fractals and Digital Abstract!
All work must be colorful,
bright and cheerful.
All submissions must follow
the group rules.
You may submit 1 work of art
to the Monthly Theme Folder.
Feature will follow, of course!
And it will be awesome!



:iconloveyouplz: Donors of points :iconloveyouplz:

There are no donors for me to feature this week, but as always a huge THANK YOU to everyone who's donated before!! :iconloveyouplz:

Thank You for Donating!!Edit(27 Sept. 2016): Thank you so much to all of our donors! We were very far from our goal of 4796 :points: needed to renew our SuperGroup status, but thanks to some generous recent donations, we have hit our target, as you can see below!!! :excited: :squee: I have now reset our donation pool and from now on will do so every time we get enough points for SuperGroup status. :nod: THANK YOU so much again, we wouldn't be here without all of you! :heart:

I know this is long overdue... I had every intention of writing a journal for our points account but I never got round to it, and now the Activity update I had posted last year is gone. So I'll have to start over, but at least this journal will stay here and I can update it. Let's go! :D
So far we've received more than 10000 points from our generous donors (any amount that we receive through the "Give points" button doesn't show up in the donation pool). I can't give a complete re-cap of the received donations and what we've used



I will see you all next month! :love:

Lily, :iconannissina:

Sounds wonderful! Thanks for adding Unframed-Nature ! :nod:

Also please add me personally for 30 :points: each for 1st place and 2nd place (yes a total of 60 from me).

Of course you'll have to bang me over the head with a hammer several times, but I'll get the points to the winners- as well as the for the feature at Unframed-Nature because unless I've got another article coming out just before we close temporarily for the year, as we always do, the feature will be late!

If you STASHED the winners in a Journal, you could just add the journal TO Unframed-Nature 's front page, perhaps.
Up to you.  But you have my permission to do that. :XD:

I just LOVE the theme so much, and would like to "round" the prizes just a tad (wish I could do more),

but first, I adore snowlflakes- and remember the joy, I had as a teacher showing my students how to create them with paper, and while teaching them how no two could ever be the same....
and then using FRACTALS as a medium for snowflakes,

I am so INTO it! :w00t:

Thank you so much for your generous donations, my dear!! :hug: I've added them to the prize list. And please don't worry about it, I'm sure our winners will understand if you're a bit late. :heart: I might feature the winners over at Unframed-Nature, if I don't forget. :XD:

Anyhow, I also adore snowflakes, and I'm glad our contest brought you such fond memories!! :iconloveyouplz: Feel free to take part, if you want, it's open to photography as well! :D

Closes December 13, but must be submitted in November. This does not make sense to me.

poca2hontas Featured By Owner Edited Nov 8, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Hi yes contest ends December and what it means is that when submitting art it must be new art which you have submitted to DA from November 2016, rather than submitting old pieces. Hope that clarifies it and we look forward to your entry

I will have to discuss this with my fellow Admins, but it does look like a fractal to me! :D

I like to take an image that I've drawn myself, and then figure out how to turn into a fractal. It's less abstract and more calculated.

Annissina Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm sorry I'm so late to reply to this! The admins discussed this and decided that Photoshop is not a fractal program, so we can't accept images made entirely with it. It is only acceptable to use Photoshop to make fractal manipulations. :rose:

Love skin you found there Lily ;) thank you so much for choosing to include one of mine amongst your favourites :hug: perfect contest announcement, very exciting. Can you add 2 things? 1) I think we should say we will only accept entries where the art was created from November 2016 ;) 2) I'm sure we would happily give the winners a mention over at XtremeFractals2 ;)

Someone was slightly confused by the entries must be made in November, I think they thought they can't be made in Dec, so I very slightly tweaked the wording in your journal to make it very clear, hope that's ok ;)
