Hello! :wave:
I would like to promote a monthly series of interviews I've recently started to bring exposure to Mandelbulb3D fractal artists, called "The Great Mandelbulber". The interviews focus on the way the artists create their fractals, on their inspirations and on giving advices to people who want to get in touch with MB3D. I published the second issue today! :w00t:
Here's the link: [link]
Thank you very much for your attention! :thanks:

I'd like to invite everyone to my group #AngelicTerra mainly accepting angel deviants but any kind of angelic looking or extremely awesome/beautiful work is accepted. We don't accept manga, fan art, celebrity art/stock(duh), comics, vore, or overly bloody/gory images. We are also having a contest running until Sept. 1st which you can find here [link] (sorry I don't know how to hashtag links like that!) and the prizes so far are amazing!!
I am also accepting commissions for those interested!
Wonderful pimp and whoa! I love the fella art!
