Newest Deviations

I am in general, a digital artist. My gallery mostly consists of fractals made in the Apophysis freeware program available on, and digital paintings done in Adobe Photoshop (currently CS3) with a 21-inch Wacom Cintiq tablet.


My favorites range far and wide across DA. There's no real one theme. Pieces come from various galleries of interest, my devwatch, or the Most Popular page set at "Last 3 Days." I'm now also watching Unburried-Treasures and am finding quite a few new things for my faves. I just pick whatever strikes my fancy, be it known or unknown. I don't really care, just as long as I like the piece.


  • Mood: Tired
  • Listening to: Whatever's on my iPod
  • Watching: My glorious 22" widescreen LCD monitor
  • Drinking: Water. Always water.
It's been entirely ENTIRELY too long since I posted a new journal.

I'm still mostly on Tumblr, so you'll find more of my art and Portal fanart on there than here. I'm very active on Tumblr, and I have an artblog I'm trying to fill with assorted pieces.

I'm now trying to creep back into fractal art, as Apophysis 7x seems to work fine with Windows 8.

I have just one problem.

I lost ALL of my old parameters from ages ago. Some computer crash, and quitting Apo. The hard-drive that even had the params was completely toasted, and I wasn't the least into fractal art at the time, so I wasn't keen on getting them back. But now, I'm just staring stupidly at my really awesome stained-glass ones and going "Oh. Shit." The ones I REALLY want most is the set I handed out in Aposhack ages ago for my piece RADIANCE, and while I managed to look up that it was made using the Lazysusan variation (which thank god, the default plugins HAS), I have completely lost almost every other fractal-making memory. :dead: To make matters worse I'm pretty sure it was a stupidly easy one to do, cause I made so many of the damn things....and I've forgotten.


If anyone happens to have those old params - I was still DeepChrome back in the day - I would be much obliged. >_>;; Just shoot 'em over in a response to this journal or in a note. Thank you.

Anyways, here's hoping I get some fractaling legs back under me. This machine's so much beefier than the old one, I have a feeling it'll probably just slam out print-quality renders in hours rather than halves or thirds of whole days. :3

I'll probably continue with the fanart, and possibly get back into digital painting when I'm feeling a little less fried. But I need a new creative venture. I saw some amazing fractal on Tumblr -looked like part ngon, part something. And it's inspired me to come back to fractaling.

Anyways, hope the holiday season finds you all well!
Chrome out.

Have you ever thought of changing the structure of your tumblr? Theres alot of posts and that causes my computor to lag. Also it would be nice to see what your first posts on tumblr look like.

Seriously. IT IS rude to tell someone to change their posting on a blog that they own, just because your computer has issues. Have you ever thought of just trying to FIX the problem than making people fix their blogs for your viewing pleasure? Really?

Sorry I'm just new to these kind of things. Plz don't hate me! :hides:

I don't hate you. But just, keep in mind that some problems you could be seeing may be fixable on your end, and that nobody's asking you to view content you don't like for whatever reason (the reasons don't matter, really and I don't blame people for not finding my stuff their cup of tea). If your computer's got issues, it'd benefit you to get those fixed if you can - that'll help your net viewing enjoyment.

There's an archive option on my theme - just click that and browse. I've been on Tumblr since early 2011 I believe, so it should be able to show you my first posts. That way it'll lag a bit less. The archive will need time to load up all the posts per month, but you should be good to go.

Mainly the lag-inducing posts that have bothered me are the image and gif ones. There's nothing really I can do to change that, and nor do I want to. (Asking someone to change their posting style because your computer has a problem viewing them is a bit rude, don't you think?)

Also I think you've got the cause of the lag mixed up. Posts online generally don't make whole computers lag, but they WILL make browsers lag. That's probably what you're seeing. If your computer is lagging overall, it's probably not just my posts when you're likely seeing all kinds of images and graphics on Tumblr, and it's a problem that needs looked at - be it a virus or some other malware in there.

It's probably more likely a browser issue, by which point I suggest you consider changing browsers and seeing if that handles the problem. I had a ton of problems with Tumblr on Firefox before switching to Chrome, and they haven't happened since.

I suggest trying out Google Chrome, as it's a more optimized browser than a lot of others, and may be able to deal with some of that lag.

So that was you kissing up to my SHODAN. I was wondering where the sudden stream of asks came from.

What were you expecting when you said her voice was like a broken sound processor anyways???? :lmao:

PS. The muse wants to know if you ever got around to working on that church design. -distant sound of an impatiently tapping claw- Sorry, just passing on the message... :P
