Let me create a unique image for you in the form of a fractal.  These are inexpensive but pretty and very flexible.  You can share with me a few details of choice and I work up for you a memento to commemorate someone's birthday, anniversary, just being friends, milestone, avatar name....really, the possibilities are endless.

I am doing this to earn points to fund various commission projects , but also to supplement the projects of certain groups I belong to.  It IS a Win/Win situation.  I can generally do the fractal and post it with in 2 days..........

Tweaking or stealing...from myself?

Hello to one and all.  I recently received the following note, which I believe was meant with pureness of heart, and not to embarrass me in any way.  I present it to you (sans name of sender) because it seems very pertinent to events happening in the fractal community right now.


"I saw your latest releases of fractal art recently, and I'd noticed you had used some previously published fractals (by Xyrus) (e.g. c0mpassion.deviantart.com/art/… ). While providing the credit is good, there are some complaints in the fractal community that other users are merely posting previously created fractals with new gradients and aren't doing any exploring themselves.
I didn't want to embarrass you by calling you out on it directly, but I though it would be nice to spare you embarrassment by someone else in the future, assuming this issue is something that concerns you.
If you're interested on learning my techniques for exploring, feel free to ask. Hopefully soon, I'll have a blog post that should detail my techniques in exploring fractal flame structure and how to manipulate it.
That said...
I hope you're doing well and meditating on the love of God. Have fun fractalling! :) (Smile)


This is my reply:

Thank you for caring enough to point something out to me that you think I have missed.  However, I am aware of some of the grumbles going on about tweaking not being a good thing.  I think you are referring to these two pieces?Rapids And Rocks By Luna1282 by C0MPASSIONDance of Creation by C0MPASSION

Maybe you thought the original was made by Xyrus because I give credit to the fractal generator as his invention?  I also give credit to the ones who took the photo's I am using.   The two above fractals ARE mine...and yes I tweaked one to make the other.   I hope it doesn't upset too many people that I will continual to make the style of fractal that I do.  In Apophysis it is called a  Dihedral flame, which you can find  under random in the Tool's section.

It prescribes a perfect symmetry.   I like the look,  I like the style and will probably keep on keeping on making this style.  I am working on a huge project at the moment where I use colors from infra-red photography....and my symmetrical fractals are consistent  with the details I need to show off their wonderful colors.  See below for examples:

Blue Tree Infrared By Michilauke by C0MPASSIONWithin Attraction By Drhussamm by C0MPASSIONOut The Window By Luna by C0MPASSIONBramhall Park Ir Series 1a By Okavanga by C0MPASSION


If you look at my profile page....I call this type of fractal "iconic"  because they usually represent an idea, celebrate an event, given as a gift....etc.....  (I also charge 30 points for a specialized dedicated fractal.

I DO appreciate your care in pointing out that most ALL of my fractals are forced symmetry.  But please know that I DO explore fractals I create....looking for ways to make them different.  Probably some of the ones you are thinking I have changed very little...but added a new gradient.

If I tweaked someone else's work...I ALWAYS credit them.   I like my style.  It might not be everyone's "cup of tea"....but they suit my purposes.  I am going to post your letter  (well written and full of care for my well being)  I will leave your name out unless you wish to identify yourself in the comments section.

I am doing this because if YOU think this way about my art....their may be others who are grumbling about my un-originality...or something like that.  My fractals are made with purpose in mind....and many many times with a direct thought to the person who is receiving it.   I DO wonder what others think.....and truly had not considered my work as 'stolen'.  I have never to my knowledge made ANY fractal based on params by Xyrus.  I have just given him credit in this Infra-red series as the creator of the program I use....Apophysis.

Does this help clear up some of the air?  Or have I just made a bad situation, worse?

Feel free to comment....please....jenny
