Please be sure to check out this month's Challenges for Ultra Fractal Artists at our Sister Site:


April 2014 Contest and ChallengeHello everyone! It's been a few months since we had a contest, so the group staff have put a lot of work into designing one with a lot of possibilities for artistic directions and technical learning... and as if that wasn't enough work, we've decided to run a theme challenge simultaneously! :faint: 
Contest: Inside Job
The purpose of this challenge is to focus on a relatively underused part of Ultra Fractal—the Inside tab. Inside coloring algorithms open up a whole new world of artistic possibilities, but using them is actually very similar to using the more common Outside tab—so no need to feel apprehensive if you've never done this before!
Because the focus of the contest is the inside tab, all entries must use the standard Mandelbrot formula, and may not use mapping. On the outside tab, you are limited to the simple coloring algorithms None, Basic, and Smooth (Mandelbrot), all in the standard.ucl file. But on the inside tab, you may go wild and do whatever yo

Rules and Information

UF-Artists3 by jim373

Submission Rules

:bulletblue: Only members may submit images.
:bulletblue: 2 submissions per day
:bulletblue: Only fractals made with Ultra Fractal (any version though) are accepted!
:bulletblue: Please make sure that you state that your work is created in Ultra Fractal (or UF) in your artist's description!
:bulletblue: In the Fractal Manipulations folder, please make sure that at least 2/3rds of the picture consists of work done in Ultra Fractal!
:bulletblue: Please only post your own works. Stolen images will be reported immediately.
:bulletblue: If you were awarded a DD, suggest it as a fav, we have saved our favourites for your awarded pieces :)
:bulletblue: Quality filtering applies: if your deviation falls below the regulations, the piece will be declined.

Possible reasons for decline are as follows:

:bulletred: Works that are basically identical to one already accepted, but colored differently. :star:
:bulletred: The work is much too basic (one layer or so resembling one of the starter parameters that come with UF).
:bulletred: The work is too similar to an original work where parameters have been supplied, thus displaying lack of creativity.
:bulletred: The work is full of artifacts due to poor attention being given to quality when resizing. This may occur when a very large image is uploaded and dA's resizing facility is relied upon for display purposes. It is always best to reduce the display size in your favourite editor first. A nice size is between 800px to 1000px across the width, and around 750px high.
:bulletred: The use of the dA watermark may be an issue due to its intrusiveness. If this is the case we will most likely decline the work;
:bulletred: The display image is too small so that we cannot properly see the details. dA's minimum size is not enough. We suggest not less than 500px on the shortest side as a minimum.
:bulletred: The use of copyrighted images in any way will be declined.

If you have any questions about the rules, feel free to note the Group :)

Cheers! Your UF-Artists Team.

Wow...thank you everyone, for somehow getting my 'Cranium 235'* deviation to be a winner of the 'weekly Deviation Award'. I'm honored and excited about that. I didn't even know I was competing. I have always felt welcomed, especially since I was invited to join. But now I'm at a loss to explain how I feel about UF-Artists. Thank you again.
*See it here!
