Well, I said to myself 'when I get to 1,000 pageviews, I'll write something in the journal'.
The 1,000 views just sort of came and went yesterday without my noticing!
A wee bit about myself then; been an artist of one kind or another since around the early '80's, when I produced illustrations for the then burgeoning computer games market. Haven't really stopped learning and - hopefully - developing my skills in various fields since.
It was only thanks to 'Stumble Upon' that I came across deviantART back in april 2010, and I was immediately blown away by the quality and variety of the work on here!
As a bit of an 'old fart'- I'm no spring chicken! - I hadn't realised just how much things digital had moved on in the art world! So I just had to fire up my old, rather dusty copy of Bryce, and get to work - haven't looked back since. Have to thank DeviantVicky [link]
for her excellent 3D tutorials, and general air of encouragement!
Also got pulled into the wonderful world of fractal art, both on dA and FractalForums.com, and started exploring that area too - discovered a great program, Mandelbulber [link]
by the very talented Krzysztof Marczak [link]
. Have now become totally hooked on exploring the realistic glimpses into the fractal 'hinterland' it offers!
So, all in all I'm very happy to be here, and enjoying 'meeting' such like minded, talented people as your good selves!
