Weekly Deviation Award ~ October 26, 2014 ~

Journal Entry: Sun Oct 26, 2014, 4:08 PM

UF-artists Weekly Deviation Award by InspiredAdmins

Hello, dear Members!!!

Welcome to our Weekly Deviation Award!

First, an announcement: We have a rule that members can't receive a Deviation Award more than once per month.
Due to the fact that it is becoming increasingly difficult to pick three winners each week that satisfy this ruling,
we will now be giving an award to ONE person each week.
We admins feel that this is necessary and the most fair way to solve our dilemma.
Thank you all for your continuing participation in our Group, we value all of you as members!!

Now to the fun part:

This week's winner is...

Please be sure to check out the monthly Challenges for Ultra Fractal Artists at our Sister Site:


October 2014 Challenges - EDITEDIT:
Just 7 days to go for these challenges!  For the Marbles challenge, please note that we are really looking for marbles that are made by using 3D mapping with or without the use of Glass Sphere mapping, and hopefully with some highlights and shadows to give depth.  I understand my wording below which says You are also free to discover your own ways of producing them. may have been misconstrued due to its possible ambiguity.  This is referring to producing the shadows, not to how the marbles are made, even though they can also be made with Orbit Traps (which in a couple of cases has been shown to be a preference, and which we have accepted.)  The real challenge in this though is to make them in the same way as described in the tutorial supplied.  I'm sorry for any confusion there may have been. ______ End of Edit.
Two Challenges Again!

After lots of deliberation, we've decided to

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!
