SA Interview - C-91

Sat Oct 18, 2014, 12:00 AM

Congratulations to C-91 for receiving seniority on July 7th, 2014! :squee:

Filler by C-91Skating by C-91

What is it like to be a part of the senior hut? How do you feel about receiving the Medal? How did you receive the news?

I don't know how to describe the feeling! :noes: Everytime I think about my new status, I smile like an idiot. :lmao: I don't deny that I hoped for it, but I actually didn't expect to become a senior. It's been a huge and awesome surprise and I need some time to get used to my little medal. :D I hope it means that I've done something good around here, that would make me even more happy! :noes:

I was checking my dA message center on the phone when I saw the journal by fourteenthstar that pre-announced she would have been nominating new seniors during the day. I'm always curious because I like when I recognize somebody from the list. :D Later, I was replying to a feature I symbol was still the little full star for Premium Members. As soon as I pressed "Submit Comment", I saw that there was something different behind my nickname! :noes: And as soon as I got to the MC, I saw a comment from my fellow fractalist and oldcomer KPEKEP who was congratulating and -huge surprise-, he became senior too!!! :noes: My hands were trembling, I couldn't even write properly on my phone. :lmao: Too many great news all at once! :love:

I see you are a part of the translator team from InternationalFAQ! How many FAQ questions have you translated for the group? It is a challenge for you sometimes to translate the FAQ?

I translated two sections into Italian: About deviantART and Browsing and Comments. One of my special features is that I'm overly lazy, and that's not a quality, is it? :lol: Shame on me. :ashamed: But anyway, it's indeed a huge project and takes a lot of time and effort. Not only you have to translate the FAQ, but you need to make them stylistically readable, avoiding repetitions and using a lot of synonyms. Otherwise one could simply paste the text into Google Translate to get the translation, but we all know the mess that comes out from that! :lmao: It's indeed challenging, but it's something I wanted to do because, as a non-native English speaker, I know what it means to have some help in my's always better! :la: I have to finish the next section, then I think I'll leave my spot to somebody who is more willing and has more time and energy to go on with it. :D

I found a list on your profile of several softwares that you use to make your fractals. May I ask why you use so many different ones?

Oh, no, that's not a list of the softwares I use. :lol: It would be really cool to be able to use all those generators, but the fact is that I'm not. :D I created that list in case people passed by my profile, got curious about fractals and want to try themselves, so I preferred to provide them with a variety of available programs (instead of the only one I use). :giggle: Those ones are the most used by people I know on deviantART, but there are many more. :D
I myself tried Apophysis and Mandelbulb3D, but my heart belongs unconditionally to Apophysis 7x. :love:

What makes you so much more apt to Apophysis than the rest of the softwares?

There are many things that make me stick to Apophysis 7x instead of other programs. :love: First of all, the editor, which consists of a black field where you can control the transforms that build your fractal up (they're represented by colored triangles). I feel like I have more control on the overall result, due to the presence of a little preview in the editor itself (it's more a psychological thing :lmao: ). Second, there are many many resources for Apophysis, so I think it's really easy to get into it and, eventually, become addicted! That's what happened to me and to other fellows. :D
Last but not the least, 3D Apophysis fractals. If you take a look at my gallery, you can notice that I strongly prefer 3D flames. I think the look you can give to them is unique and can't be done in any other software (maybe JWildfire, but I've never tried :dummy:). That's what made me say "let's try Apophysis!" and made me fall in love with it! :love:
I don't exclude in future I'll try other softwares, but for now I'm happy with Apo. :heart:

Thank you very much for the interview! Do you have anything you wish to share with us? Any Last words?

Thank you for the interview! :hug: And thanks to those people who suggested me for seniority (I still have no clue who they are :lmao:), and fourteenthstar who actually made me senior. :D I had not the chance to thank them yet. :XD:
I think I'll spam some awesome groups where you can get many marvellous examples of fractal art. :dummy:
:iconfractaldreams: :iconallthingsfractal: :iconapophysis: :iconchaoticafractals: :iconthe-aposhack: :iconmandelbulb3d: :iconfractal-resources:
If you want to talk to other fractal people, you are welcome to join the #Aposhack chatroom. You can find me there pretty much everyday, or in another chatroom called #ShareZone. :heart:

In conclusion, if you want to do something, never discourage yourself and don't give up. :hug: Most of the time it can be tough (I've been myself through lack of inspiration, hiatuses and disapproval by other people), but in the end, the satisfaction will be huge. :heart:
That's all I can say that might be helpful. :D

Thank you very much C-91 for the interview!

Monday Munchies [22]

Mon Oct 6, 2014, 5:32 PM by TimberClipse:icontimberclipse:


Every Monday, I will be featuring a single deviant's artwork. The deviant may be known or unknown, and may have received accolades or joined deviantART last week. By featuring just a single deviant, I hope to give the deviant some exposure and bring a little beauty to your week. I also include a short description about the artist and/or what draws me to their work.

Sparkle of Life by SauliusPhotography

I was introduced to SauliusPhotography when Mrs-Durden featured one of their deviations (seen below) with a Daily Deviation. The piece was really interesting to me as it was so natural. Unlike many photos like it, I didn't feel that it was staged. It felt like a single moment was being captured.

Water breath by SauliusPhotography

This is the style that I see in all of SauliusPhotography's pieces and it really is wonderful to me. In addition, the use of lighting and flares I also find very interesting. Again, I see pieces that aren't boring, they are fun because of how much they are willing to play with different styles.

You'll want to check out all of SauliusPhotography's pieces. You might just find a new deviant to watch!
