So, this is the replacement for the last of my Three Blooms, as well as a request from ~koryn8232, AS WELL AS THE LAST BLOOM FRACTAL I WILL BE MAKING IN A LONG TIME. I've gone through multiple Deviants [even `Xyrus02, who talks much more like a normal person than I had anticipated - talks kinda like a Jersey guy ], and I've gotten a bunch of opinions on Blooms [and just so you know, =f-ix, this was not based on our conversation, I've been doing this since before that ], and as much as I love them, I feel it isn't fair to make more. Why?
- I don't really feel comfortable with anything that goes against `Xyrus02's "tweaking" rules, and as far as I'm concerned, my blooms are pretty much just obvious remakes of the original.
- I don't yet have the skill in Apo to make an "original remake" [for lack of a better phrase] of the Bloom tutorial, so all of them will look pretty much the same.
- I feel bad I didn't think about it earlier.
So from now on, the only reason I'll use Bloom parameters is for stuff that is ACTUALLY tweaked. I'm evidently making a big thing out of something small, but I like to do that . It confuses people! Anyway, ~koryn8232, here's you signed fractal
Oh my gosh! I'm not the world's greatest "bloom" fan (for reasons similar to those you mentioned), but when I see one that's a little different, like this one, I love it. This is simply gorgeous! I'm going to be studying bloom fractals in order to learn from them. I see that I have a high standard to meet if I'm ever going to post anything!
They are! If you love these, I think you should keep making them! Posting them too! Other people do it, so why shouldn't you? I think it's excellent to follow the rules, in general, but not if you're making yourself unhappy and no great harm would be done by posting. If you link to the parameters you used, and perhaps explain that you didn't tweak as much as you'd have liked to (but that you're learning), I think you'll be okay as far as the rules go. And people would have a chance to enjoy these wonderful creations!
I respect your choice, but I don't understand it completely, Cameron... this is a very nice bloom, with some original light effects which I really like I don't know what did Xyrus or F-ix tell you, but I think that if you like to express yourself and your creativity in a certain way, there's nothing wrong with that making something truly personal, original and unique with Apophysis indeed requires experience, time, a bit of talent and a lot of fantasy... so in the beginning, as long as you actually tweaked the flame and began putting something "yours" in it, you're on the right path
But I'm inadvertently getting a LOT of attention from it, and I don't feel like that's fair. Besides, I'm going to continue the Blooms, I'm just not going to submit them to deviantART unless I think they are worth it. I have over 100 blooms I haven't gotten close to submitting, because I didn't think they were good enough tweaks. I just Blooms
But I don't think it's fair to those that can tweak them well, or to you, since people are faving a variation of your work
BTW, `Xyrus02 just said he couldn't care less, but that technically it doesn't follow the tweaking rules, so I at least want to abide by the rules of Apo. =f-ix just happened to bring up the subject when I posted a poll titled something along the lines of "WHO WANT'S MORE BLOOMS?
