Ultra Fractal 5 Stamp by aartika-fractal-art
stamp kindly supplied by aartika-fractal-art

This group is for work carried out in Ultra Fractal only. We do not accept work created in any other fractal program.

:iconcolorfulsparklesplz: OUR CURRENT CHALLENGES:iconcolorfulsparklesplz:
February-March Challenges1.  White Yellow Black, White Yellow Grey Challenge
Last year we ran a showcase challenge for Black White and Red fractal art, which was very successful and brought us lots of fantastic images to enjoy.  So we thought we'd give this type of challenge another go, this time using Yellow instead of Red, and giving the choice of using either Black or Grey as the darker tone, and of course, White.
Here are some examples to look at:

A NOTE ABOUT CHALLENGES

We will be running challenges and/or contests each month/bi-monthly plus some other things of interest on a regular basis. Watch our journals for information!

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Would you like to suggest a DD from the UF Community?

Our New CV is :iconc-91:

You can also go to FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen? and make your suggestions to one of the overall gallery supervisors in order to keep Ultra Fractal Art in the public eye!

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

:iconuf-artists:
This is our brother site to look at if you would like another group dedicated to Ultra Fractal, which offers weekly awards for best submissios!

:iconfractals-in-mono:
Our Sister Site for all fractal artists (any program) who enjoy a limited colour palette.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

You don't yet have Ultra Fractal but you'd love to learn it? HERE is where you can obtain it! Come and join the group; any questions, just ask!

Also HERE is the link to Janet Parke's courses, all three of which can be downloaded to your pc for $50 (£30). Highly recommended for newbies as well as those who know the workings of Ultra Fractal.

For some interesting parameters for practice with Mandies and Midgets go HERE to Toby Marshall's article!

1.  White Yellow Black, White Yellow Grey Challenge


Last year we ran a showcase challenge for Black White and Red fractal art, which was very successful and brought us lots of fantastic images to enjoy.  So we thought we'd give this type of challenge another go, this time using Yellow instead of Red, and giving the choice of using either Black or Grey as the darker tone, and of course, White.

Here are some examples to look at:

Specific Rules for Black/Grey White & Yellow Challenge:

Please read these carefully!

Bullet; Red  The colours must only be black or grey, white and yellow, although:
  • graduations of the yellow using black or white are allowed, and graduations of grey using black and white are also allowed within the image. You may use Grey instead of Black as your dark colour.
  • You may also produce an image in Black and Yellow only if you wish.  Yellow must be used in all submissions.
Bullet; Red  You may submit up to 4 (FOUR) images, but please ensure each looks significantly different to your other submissions.
Bullet; Red  You may create anything you like, so long as it is created inside Ultra Fractal.
Bullet; Red  Please submit your work to this folder ultra-fractal-redux.deviantart…

Note:  Please adhere the general rules at the bottom of this journal as well.



2.  Create and Share A New Texture.


The challenge here is to create brand new textures and to share them.  There are plenty of tutorials and parameters available with textures here ultra-fractal-redux.deviantart…  but whilst these are here to help you and give you ideas, we would like you to create something new, either from scratch or from one of the textures in a pack/tutorial.

You can either:

 -  Create a new image using textures on some or all layers to enhance the shapes within the work individually, or texture the whole image with one texture,   OR
 -  Create a fractal sample with one or more texture layers to share publicly.

Some Hints


Some colourings include texture options e.g. Doodads II, Harlequin II, Trapestry-x and many others - "look out for built-in options and have a play". There are also various mappings that offer opportunities for tiling, glass, distortion effects and so on.

Bullet; Red  You may create anything/use any theme you like, so long as it is created inside Ultra Fractal.
Bullet; Red  Parameters for at least ONE of your texture layers MUST BE NEW AND MUST BE SHARED PUBLICLY AND MUST USE PUBLIC FORMULAS.
:bulletred:  Where resource textures have been used on any layers, a link must be given to their source.


General Rules:

Bullet; Red  You must be a member of this group to submit.
Bullet; Red  The fractal must be a new one, created on or after 1st February 2015
:bulletred:  You may use Mapping (transforms)
:bulletred:  You may use masking if you wish, but this is not compulsory.
Bullet; Red  No Fractal Manipulations are allowed.
Bullet; Red  Minimal post-work only allowed (such as enhancing colours, sharpening and adding signature).
Bullet; Red  Your formulas MUST be from within the Public Domain if you intend to share them.
