I can surely give you what you need to do it and show you how if you like. It's probably easier than you think. Let me know.

AWESOME!!!!!

Would you be able to send me the link for the software you use?
I do alot of mine by hand, but this animation part is absolutely incredible.

I have a band that I support through my photography, and getting their information out there, and this would be so awesome to use on their website with a drawing I did for them.

suggestion: don't put parenthesis around your site name... just the name itself should tell the system to automatically create a link for us to just click:)

Thank you! Actually To make the beginning designs I only use an old program similar to photoshop called Photo Studio by Arc Soft. I got it for free with a digital camera I bought. It's very basic photo software, and I do things manually (one frame at a time- no fancy fractal software)
To animate the art I make: I just use a basic gif animator. which has very few tools and basically just binds my art into a GIF file. It cost about 20 bucks and can be downloaded from Blumenthal. here's the link [link]
Let me know if you have any problems getting or operating the animator... believe me... its VERY simple.
and sure... use my art for anything ya want... it would be an honor. checking yer website.

I am new to creating fractals- how did you animate yours? Wonderful stuff.

Well... First I make the 'master image' (the image or background that I plan to modify to make the animated sequence) For this I use a basic program similar to Photoshop. Then I decide in general what the animation is going to do. (spin, expand, slide, explode, sing and dance,whatever) I then do a basic animation which I usually end up modifying further after the basic motion is done. For example I will make the master image move across the screen from left to right, then modify each frame, making the same modification to each frame. To make the animation sequence I import the master image to a basic GIF animator (several are available on line starting at about $20.00). In the case of "Fluorescence II" I duplicated the same animation (after modifications were complete)and placed them in succession in a separate animation. This particular animation is not as complex as it may look and was rather easy so make. Altogether I probably spent about an hour from beginning to completion. If you're interested I can help you with the basics via a live tutorial on line where you can watch me build an animation from beginning to end. This requires downloading a free program called "Team Viewer" which will enable you to see my desktop and ask questions while I work. Let me know if you're interested and I'll help you get what you need to do all this, including sending you the animation and art software if you need it. I learned what I know about e-art by trial and error and it was a l o n g road...so I'm always glad to save a fellow artists a few miles and hours of frustration... by just showing exactly how i made this weird stuff. haha!
Thanks for the nice compliment. :)
Get back to me.

Actually my software is quite primitive. I only use a program similar to Adobe's 'photoshop' called Photo Studio by ArcSoft. I got it for free when I bought a digital camera.... It has very few tools and is not very accurate. I also use 'Easy GIF Animator' by Blumenthal... I downloaded it on line for 30 dollars and it also is very basic with only the rudimentary tools needed to create motion. This leaves me to do all the calculations myself...a time consuming ordeal. I often photograph or make many of my beginning images by hand, then scan them into the computer and go from there. I keep thinking I'll get some good fractal software someday, but my available funds at the moment don't allow me to make expenditures like that without starving haha! So for now I'm happy with what I have. Thank You for your interest.

well, primitive tho it may be, you do well with it!!! the reason I'd asked, was that one of your pieces belonged to a "non-photoshop" group... I use PSP myself... fractal generators like Apophysis, Fractal Explorer and a few others are free - you might want to check them out [link] lots of resource links...

Thanks so much! I downloaded Apophysis 7x and installed it. I opened it and am completely confused on how it works but I saw tutorials are available and I'm eager to enter the next phase of my craft. Hopefully it's not beyond my comprehension (like Flash cs-4...what a nightmare!)... I was already planning on making changes in my diet to cover the cost of what I now have thanks to you! Now if I can just find a way to get sent home from work so I can begin... got any ideas? haha... Thanks again... MUCH appreciated, my friend. :)

check out my note...


that's the thing about work... it keeps getting in the way... that's why I'm glad to be retired/disabled now, even if it does mean LOTS less $$$ than when I did work... though I really need to supplement my income some kind of way... SS Disability is not a lot!!!
have a BALL!!!

I love kaleidoscopes! Have one right here behind my desk. And a folder of them in my favourites! LOL!

lol. I always thought it would be cool to have a pair of glasses I could wear that did the kaleidoscope thing. I imagine it might be difficult to drive while wearing them though. I better just stick to my UV ray-bans for now.

That WOULD be cool! Seriously how awesome would it be to have a pair and kick back with some 70s rock-n-roll and a little mellow-me-out ummm...TEA! Yeah. Some mellow TEA, awesome music and kaleidoscope glasses.

Sounds groovy!
