Fractals in Nature or Nature in FractalsHere is a Feature as part of the :iconcommunityrelations: Project Educate: Fractals Week 2011!
By now you may be knowing what Fractals many other features here explained it I'm not going to define it....
In one of his speeches, Mandel Brot, Father of Fractals, explains how he construct the geometry of things which have no geometry...., shape of Clouds, shape of Coast lines, shape of trees etc...He named it as Fractal geometry!
Self similarity is the main characteristic feature of these naturally occurring things around us...If you observe the structure of our Lungs,
structure of our Nervous System & Structure of Blood vessels we can see this phenomenon.
So we can say that we are breathing through our Fractal Lungs!!! Our blood is flowing through Fractal Veins etc...
In short Fractals are there in nature and we Fractalists try to create nature through Fractals using different Fractal generating programs....
Here are some examples....

Project Educate - Fractal Week - The art of TweakHi there all!
It’s… “Project Educate - Fractal Week”!
An initiative brought to you by SuicideBySafetyPin and the Fractal Community
Check out the link for more info and don’t forget to show up in :iconaposhack: chat room this week!
My little contribution to the Project goes in this article. The main theme is: tweaks, tweakers and tweaking! I’m covering Apophysis program but feel free to read the article to the end to get a general idea of tweaking. :)
To tweak or not to tweak, that is the big question.
First of all, what is that strange word tweaking?
I guess since fractal art began, the programmers of the fractal programs have created formulas and plugins and a lot of resources to use to create the beauties we are, now, so delighted to see. With the expanse of fractal art, other fractalists decided to share their discoveries in form of tutorials or in the for

Fractal Flowers for "Project Educate Fractal
Hello there fellow fractal artists and fractal lovers!! This week is "Fractal Week" holded by projecteducate :la: and this article is part of my lil contribution :giggle:
Today we will talk about “Fractal Flowers”, but first what is a fractal?
- A fractal has been defined as "a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole. The term fractal was coined by Benoît Mandelbrot in 1975 and was derived from the Latin fractus meaning "broken" or "fractured”. While fractals are a mathematical construct, they are found in nature, which has led to their inclusion in artwork. (Wikipedia)
So, fractal can be found in nature but at the same time nature can be found in fractals! One of the most representative natural shapes we see in fractals are flowers, and lets gonna be serious who doesn’t like

What is the first thing that makes you attracted to Fractal Art?
i was looking for a background on google
Fractals – The Art of Trial and ErrorI remember the first time I attempted fractal art. I wasn’t even on DeviantART at the time. I was talking to some friends over the internet, and one of them, a moderator at the time, was starting a community project to make a fractal tarot card deck. It occurred to me that out of the many artsy things I’d tried, fractals were not among them. I immediately downloaded some programs and started learning.
Platinus offered tons of times to show me the ropes, but I’ve always been the self-learner type, and most of what I know was learned through trial and error. I figured out how to manipulate the transforms in Apophysis, I was able to understand what variations did what, and I taught myself how to make things the colors I wanted them to be.
I learned the hard way about parameter files and what to save. I actually deleted some of my parameters without even thinking because I thought it was a useless file taking up space. I lost some more later due to a computer crash that
Project Educate Fractal WeekHi my name is Light and i am a fractalholic......oh wait ….wrong meeting!
Hello!  Welcome to Project Educate Fractal Week. My mission this week is to try and explain what fractal art is, show you some programs used to create fractal art, and get you totally addicted to it like I am.
“What is Fractal Art?” i could copy something straight from wikipedia...or get one of my well versed fractal friends to give me a technical answer but....that’s just not my style..
I don’t really understand the “math” behind fractal art. I don’t want to. I just want the tools to make beautiful images. Platinus once told me “ a painter doesn’t really have to know what’s in the paint or how the canvas was made to be able to create beautiful work”  so I live by those words. If you have been thinking about trying fractals but stopped because you don’t know anything about the math requir

What is a Fractal?
A Fractal is a digital artwork that is based on parametres and formulas that are based on mathematics(Geometry). The name „Fractal“ comes from the latin words „fractus“ (fractured, refracted) or „frangere“ (to break into pieces).
Benoît Mandelbrot
The one who coined the term of „Fractal“ was Benoît Mandelbrot. He was a Mathematician born on 20th of November 1924 in Warsaw and died on 14th of October 2010 in Cambridge/US. He  contributed a lot to the thematic of financial mathematics, theoretical physics and chaos science. But the highest popularity he gained with being the father of Fractals.
What is Fractal Art?
Fractal Art is , like name says, Art made from Fractals :D Too simple? Well You can create a Fractal and call it Art and you can create several Fractals and stick them together and call it Art – in either way – Fractal Art i
