All that I am by TSHansen
All that I am
It has been a long journey from a ton of different fields of experience in my life. I have enjoyed  returning to my roots of seeing the spiritual world with my eye's. As a child it used to terrify me, seeing all there energy fields, seeing all this crazy stuff that other people did not. it has taken my life to realize that I am not as crazy as I thought, and not all of this was my imagination. Studying herbs has been very good to me cause it covers all worlds from the mundane dirt and chemicals, to the internal realm of neural chemicals to the lofty of energy and communion of the heart with other species. I have since the start tried to sometimes represent what i see. This is the first time i pulled it off. Ironically this is the first peice of art work I ever made at it beginning that i devoted to myself. Which aside from t he occasional experiment I never really made anything for myself, i always write music,poetry or art as gifts to others.

The long code to follow is the original source material. Your more then welcome to play with the code. I only ask that you change more then one layer. It really made me angry that i released my code and someone got the daily buy turning off one layer and posting up my fractal. So make it your own, post me a note. I learn so much by seeing people play with my material.

The gate of the eye by TSHansen
The gate of the eye
 I dedicate making this fractal to Thelma thelma1.deviantart.com/ who has haunted DA with some serious staying power. I love Thelma because she really does care about the DA community as a whole(she was the first to noticed that i returned), and I admire her AMAZING tenacity to consistently keep producing art thinks she is up to 725 works of art! Thelma may you keep your eyes and heart to the heavens and continue your journey towards greater understanding and creation of art.

Done is Ultra Fractal 5.02 took me 21 hours of three day period to create. Thus us I revisited star garden tshansen.deviantart.com/art/St… that i did back in 2007 Which I simply did not have the skill to realize what I wanted to do. I feel the stars are legit with some practice it will become better. The gas plasma on the other hand is a long way off. 

I also squeezed this peice out after having a conversation with littledeviltoo . aka. Lenora Clark littledeviltoo.deviantart.com/ who i took classes with Janet Parker back in 2007? Literally my first true fractal that wasn't complete garbage was made for her tshansen.deviantart.com/art/Li…  before that my fractals I made were frankly bad. I really look forward to collaborating with Lenora, It took ton of looking at other peoples work to get me to where I am now, But i feel that Lenora pushed me in a good way to be a better artist. Wish us luck on that enterprise. With her guidance and some hard work I hope in a year to double the quality of where I am at.  

The long code to follow is the original source material. Your more then welcome to play with the code. I only ask that you change more then one layer. It really made me angry that i released my code and someone got the daily buy turning off one layer and posting up my fractal. So make it your own, post me a note. I learn so much by seeing people play with my material.. Plus I love space are, I think this combined with my other fractal could really kick out of source material for space art.

micahdbolen - DeviantArt asked a rather provocative question that has been bugging me for sometime. So i post the following rant that at least scratch pads some idea's out. Although ya gotta admit if one is not careful one could write a damn book on the subject and not get anywhere. I mean what is "art" in and of itself if you deconstruct it out of its culture,genre,economics,trends, idiomatic..The you get the idea. So sticking with purely the we will define the subject of generative art as:a complex algorithm in which textures. shapes and colors gradient are largely dictated by the programming and randomness.

Dear Micahdbolen: Its a good question that I have personally struggled with.. Sometimes i feel that its cheating. I am sure there more then a few in the fractal community that might say "Tom..Your art is terrible..Just stop.." Well I can be embaressed now and then by how awsome some people are consistently at this medium and how mine is sweat,blood. tiers and dumb luck. So let me frame the question in another medium that is deceptiovely simple.. Let me  take Jackson Pollock as an example. I don't feel personally one of his paintings should have ever sold for 140 million That is just crazy it just paints thrown on a canvas for god's sake..On the other hand I can tell the difference between him versus some other silly person who with pure laziness thinks there now a professional artist because they have the same materials. just going to town with splatter paint Technic? I can tell the difference because 1) I thought it sounded in principle easy so im like hey, i can do this to! Realization hits home and then followed 2)Not just anyone can do this..Mine looks like crap. How did Jack do what he did?? 3)Finally after many failure and still nothing good i  came to the conclusion that most don't put any serious time to understanding the rhyme. setting the medium properly and actually using it for a decent amount of time. Anyone can use a crayon to draw a stick figure, few people could then take a hair dryer, and mix the melted wax into something insanely cool looking. Most fractal programs come with a wonderful zones and some base layers that are good looking in and of themselves. This is part because its shape mimics some serious fundamental laws about the universe and it doesn't hurt to have some genetic imperatives that says things like pi and the golden ratio are automatic wins. You seriously can draw a square a certain way and literally hands down statically speaking people will like it more then other shaped squares. Although most people have a innate talent there can be principles of design that can be learned, it can actually be a skill. 

So let me be blunt. Most fractal art is shit(yes I include myself in that statement)..Its interesting, and its exciting to find new domains. I have struggled with this art for a while now. The other problem is that its new in the since that the computers needed to do the serious math wasn't there, and the control over formulas where not open box.. When Photoshop first came out anyone who could shove a lens flare onto something  and it was awesome..Because no one knew any better.

There are STILL people who believe owning a certain program makes them an instant artist, they even take classes thinking, Oo if i just understand this I can push a button, and bam! Instant art.  Now Photoshop is used by so many people with insanely good talent that you better put some serious work into a project, and even then people are gonna nit pick your layers without mercy. Can i tell the difference between some dude who just loaded up choatica, apo or ultra Fractal for the first time..Hell yes. Does the average person know..Probably not. As long as community allows people to just click buttons all day long like pigeons picking at seeds, just shoot graphics out of there asses at light speed we will get more of the same. I work hard at what I do because I hope one day someone will take what I do as serious art. Yes there can be happy accidents that make art, but at the end of the day, without both talent and hard work shaping the image with some consciousness, any medium of any kind will remain lifeless.  Without that life there is no art. As we approach A.I. it might screw with that paradigm but for now going back to the dawn of time it still stands as s standard.

Some where
At some point I am going to have to remaster masking layers, but I have had a ton of fun leaving it plain Jane and just to see how textures interact.  Im happy that things are looking less
and less like spiral and more like energy all the time.

the code to follow is ultra fracta code which is the name of the program i use to make most of my artwork...It can be copy and pasted in UF.. If ya decide to play with it, please change a few layers before calling it your own and drop me a note.

SheShallHaveChildren by TSHansen
SheShallHaveChildren
I made this for a very beautiful friend of mine named Sarah aka moonkicks555.deviantart.com/  who I have enjoyed watching her flower into her own-self. One day she hopes to have a family of her own on-top of other adventures. This is a Talisman yantra of a mothers face broadcasting into the astral realm of the otzar(the place of unborn souls). I was told by another friend who had a vision of her daughter before she got pregnant. The child's face was burning within a comet, flying around in her dream, and the child said "My name is Hayley!" when she became pregnant she knew it was her. We do not live in that world much, we hardly feel are own bodies anymore. It taken a lot of mediation,prayer and yoga to get my mind back to a child like state of full awareness. Whimsical perhaps but very full filling for me. 

The code to follow after this sentence is my ultra fractal code i used to make this fractal as matter of record in-case my hard-rive dies, and also because i think most fractal people are terrified that people will steal there work. Well I don't need secret gimmicks to be an artist and I am not afraid of thieves. My personal fractal philosophy is stop being cheap with your code by helping the next generation of fractal artist play with your code. It improves the art for all. Really it will.

Interests
micahdbolen - DeviantArt asked a rather provocative question that has been bugging me for sometime. So i post the following rant that at least scratch pads some idea's out. Although ya gotta admit if one is not careful one could write a damn book on the subject and not get anywhere. I mean what is "art" in and of itself if you deconstruct it out of its culture,genre,economics,trends, idiomatic..The you get the idea. So sticking with purely the we will define the subject of generative art as:a complex algorithm in which textures. shapes and colors gradient are largely dictated by the programming and randomness.

Dear Micahdbolen: Its a good question that I have personally struggled with.. Sometimes i feel that its cheating. I am sure there more then a few in the fractal community that might say "Tom..Your art is terrible..Just stop.." Well I can be embaressed now and then by how awsome some people are consistently at this medium and how mine is sweat,blood. tiers and dumb luck. So let me frame the question in another medium that is deceptiovely simple.. Let me  take Jackson Pollock as an example. I don't feel personally one of his paintings should have ever sold for 140 million That is just crazy it just paints thrown on a canvas for god's sake..On the other hand I can tell the difference between him versus some other silly person who with pure laziness thinks there now a professional artist because they have the same materials. just going to town with splatter paint Technic? I can tell the difference because 1) I thought it sounded in principle easy so im like hey, i can do this to! Realization hits home and then followed 2)Not just anyone can do this..Mine looks like crap. How did Jack do what he did?? 3)Finally after many failure and still nothing good i  came to the conclusion that most don't put any serious time to understanding the rhyme. setting the medium properly and actually using it for a decent amount of time. Anyone can use a crayon to draw a stick figure, few people could then take a hair dryer, and mix the melted wax into something insanely cool looking. Most fractal programs come with a wonderful zones and some base layers that are good looking in and of themselves. This is part because its shape mimics some serious fundamental laws about the universe and it doesn't hurt to have some genetic imperatives that says things like pi and the golden ratio are automatic wins. You seriously can draw a square a certain way and literally hands down statically speaking people will like it more then other shaped squares. Although most people have a innate talent there can be principles of design that can be learned, it can actually be a skill. 

So let me be blunt. Most fractal art is shit(yes I include myself in that statement)..Its interesting, and its exciting to find new domains. I have struggled with this art for a while now. The other problem is that its new in the since that the computers needed to do the serious math wasn't there, and the control over formulas where not open box.. When Photoshop first came out anyone who could shove a lens flare onto something  and it was awesome..Because no one knew any better.

There are STILL people who believe owning a certain program makes them an instant artist, they even take classes thinking, Oo if i just understand this I can push a button, and bam! Instant art.  Now Photoshop is used by so many people with insanely good talent that you better put some serious work into a project, and even then people are gonna nit pick your layers without mercy. Can i tell the difference between some dude who just loaded up choatica, apo or ultra Fractal for the first time..Hell yes. Does the average person know..Probably not. As long as community allows people to just click buttons all day long like pigeons picking at seeds, just shoot graphics out of there asses at light speed we will get more of the same. I work hard at what I do because I hope one day someone will take what I do as serious art. Yes there can be happy accidents that make art, but at the end of the day, without both talent and hard work shaping the image with some consciousness, any medium of any kind will remain lifeless.  Without that life there is no art. As we approach A.I. it might screw with that paradigm but for now going back to the dawn of time it still stands as s standard.

Thomas, Just to let you know I have a very inflamed left shoulder; had a cortisone injection Friday, but today it is worse than it has ever been, and has become virtually frozen!  I am having to rest my elbow on the arm of my chair to type this!

I have your note starred, and have your latest message to reply to.  Have not forgotten, but this is as much as I can do right now! :(

I cannot even hold my flute to play it!!!

Ya it may sounds egotistical But I don't add many watches. When I watch people its because im like WOW! I wanna figure out what there doing so that I can do thing equally as good one day or I feel it in my bones that have some greatness that's gonna squeegee out one day...You are one of them what ya do is decent and soon i feel your style is gonna reach another critical mass(your macro photography is above and beyond anything i have ever done). Also you do contribute to DA art community which I respect. The other rare watch's are people who are so outrageously good that I can talk art theory with and admire there hard work. I am still blown away by your openness, i liked the spiritual visions you shared. Reminds me not all my experiences with God is consider mental illness by everyone. I keep a lot of my visions to myself. Once in a rare while when i open up, people will say things like "They give medication for that sort of thing". I do think you would mock me. Still hope one of these days to catch on phone or Skype and hear about your experiences and walk with Jesus.
