Appalling Deviantart policyEDIT: I'm updating this because after almost 4,000 negative comments on the original journal, numerous journal shares and social media comments, Deviantart is going to lift the Geoban on Syria. Mythiril's statement: https://comments.deviantart.com/1/731065159/4555022355 and DA's statement: https://comments.deviantart.com/1/731065159/4554993532
My original journal still remains below.
Deviantart says "We are the movement for the liberation of creative expression." A few days ago, Deviantart blocked all the artists, and indeed the entire country of Syria. Deviantart says "Artists love us because we are an inclusive and supportive community." Deviantart has now blocked all the Iranian artists, and their entire country. They are also (possibly) blocking all the posts about this situation on the DA site by tagging all those posts with a 'mature content' tag so casual visitors, or people that don't have an accou
More Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2Hey Everyone, Hal Tenny here! I hope you're not tired of GOTG V2 news yet.
With all the recent films that include fractal elements, fractals are finally getting a bit more exposure, which can only be good news for all of us. "Doctor Strange", "Suicide Squad" and the soon to be released "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2" (just to mention a few) all have fractal elements in them. And GOTG V2 specifically has Mandelbulb 3D imagery. There's still a lot I can't say about what I know as far as Guardians goes, but I think it's safe to give a little more info about my involvement.
I submitted over 300 images to the art department, and somewhere around 25 OBJ models, all made the old way from voxel slices. As far as I know, none of the models were used, but it gave them some perspective on what could be done with MB3D. Many of the 300 images I sent were simply variations of each other based on 10 or 12 themes or styles. Most were based on mandelbulb imagery of mine that they had found posted on
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 update 2Back in December, I was allowed to announce that I had contributed conceptual fractal images for the Marvel film, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2". Since then Marvel has released two short trailers and one full length trailer from the film. I just wanted to share a few new screen grabs of some of the fractal imagery.
I do want to stress that I only supplied fractal images and some models as concepts. I had no input what so ever on how the imagery was used, and for the most part any fractal imagery you see in the film has been further 'conceptualized' by other artists. For instance, a scene that shows fractal elements will most likely have been constructed from parts or pieces of many different fractal images I sent rather than a standalone fractal image.
I am of course proud to have contributed Mandelbulb 3D fractal imagery for the film, and that it has an important impact in some of the scenes. But a significant portion of the credit also has to be given to the professional concept art
