NEWS: Using Fractal Resources
We are looking for someone to author similar articles for UF, Incendia, FE, and others! Note us if you can help!
Using Resources Tutorial by
All the resources available on Fractal-Resources (and on DA) have been provided by people who have generously shared their skills, knowledge and time helping us all make better Art. In order to encourage these individuals to continue to provide these valuable tools, there are several guidelines that should be followed.
Be sure and read any rules for use. Give proper credit to the author/s in your comments. [remember some resources are Licenced by law].
It is important to remember that Scripts, Flames and Tutorials are meant to be a starting point. Use the resources in the spirit they were made, DO NOT simply recolor or make small changes to the work and claim it as your own.
Scripts, Flamepacks, and Tutorials are meant to help you learn how to use the tools of the programs, not as a means to make unaltered fractal art.
FLAMEPACKS are a group of flame parameters to be used as starting points in Fractal Programs, not the renders/images themselves and should be in this Gallery> Resources & Stock Images > Fractal Resources > Flamepacks
If it is not clearly labeled "STOCK" it is not for use in your art.
STOCK packs are packaged images that you can use in your Art and should be in Resources & Stock Images > Stock Images > Fractals.
If you download or use resources, a and comments are appreciated.
For more information on DA Rules for use see> FAQ #257: What sort of permission do I need to use someone else's work?
Following these simple guidelines will encourage more people to create resources for us all.
