After a really quick "OMFGIGOTANIDEA!" - "OMGIT'SAWESOME" type of conversation we decided to staaart...
*epic drums for tension*SEASONAL CHALLENGES!
It will work fairly easy: I'll give you guidelines, which you must keep in mind - but remember: these are challenges, you are not limited, you are just given some hints!
You will have 3 categories
to enter: COLOR challenge!
I'll show you a picture, or give you color codes, or describe you a landscape, and you'll have to "reproduce" it in a fractal way - with a visibly similar gradient.
For this, summer season, I'll give it to your imagination!
Imagine a secluded island on the huge ocean, with vibrant wildlife, fresh air, and colorful birds everywhere! I doubt it was hard
There you go, got the picture in mind? Paint it as a fractal! FORMULA challenge!
Which will consist of either formula, or coloring algorithm limitations. This time, I would like to ask you, to use one of my all time favorite formulas, the Rose Julia
! For this challenge, I would also like you to attach the parameters for us to make sure you used the given formula/algorithm. FREESTYLE challenge!
This time you are not limited to colors, or formulas... whatever blows your mind in a season... should that be seaside walks, huge crop fields waving like an ocean, colorful gardens, musical festivals, camps, trips, mountains, exotic countries... whatever your fantasy fancies! The only requirement is to keep the actual season - this time summer - in mind!
Now for the few rules which apply:
Every challenge will start on the seasonal solstice! For summer, this year it's... today!
It will last until the last day of the season, which is 22nd September (a three month period.)
You are permitted to only submit 1 piece
category monthly, which means everyone will be allowed to submit 9 entries in total
Only fractals made with UltraFractal are allowed, minor modifications and fractal manipulations are acceptable as well, as long as it's clearly recognizably a UF fractal YOU SHOULD SUBMIT THE PIECES INTO THE SEASONAL CHALLENGE - SUMMER 2012 FOLDER, AND SHOULD INCLUDE THE CATEGORY IN YOUR DESCRIPTION! OTHERWISE YOUR WORK CAN'T BE INCLUDED! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!
At the end of each season we will choose 1-1-1 best from each category, and reward the winners with features, and a humble 200 points
Offerings, donations are more than welcome, we will !NOT! spend any donations on super group status, unless specified, all incoming points will be spread equally amongst the winners!
I'm super excited to see your fantastic works, please feel free to ask if you have any questions, something is not right, or not evident enough! I hope you'll enjoy these "tasks", and will find inspiration in them!
Have a great summer, I look forward to get hundreds of entries!
All the best to you!
Livia, your admin
