My name is Silvia, I was born in 1991 in lovely Tuscany, I'm a Chemical Engineering student in Università di Pisa and a 3rd Level Student of Wing Tjun @ AAM in my town. I tried many means of art, like photography and graphics for forums, before placing myself into the world of fractals. As you can see, I'm addicted to flowers. :lmao:
For the rest, I like cheesecakes, gummy candies, 100% pineapple juice and pizza. Like a lot. :noes:
And I hate winking emotes. :| Don't do them to me, please. :|

Thanks to fractals, I've got in touch with a lot of nice people, including my sweet Xyrus-02. :heart: :hug:

:stare: Seniority Announcement - July 2014
This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after Senior Member accolade -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.
:faq29:
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community. 
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out
SA Interview - C-91Congratulations to C-91 for receiving seniority on July 7th, 2014! :squee:

What is it like to be a part of the senior hut? How do you feel about receiving the Medal? How did you receive the news?
I don't know how to describe the feeling! :noes: Everytime I think about my new status, I smile like an idiot. :lmao: I don't deny that I hoped for it, but I actually didn't expect to become a senior. It's been a huge and awesome surprise and I need some time to get used to my little medal. :D I hope it means that I've done something good around here, that would make me even more happy! :noes:
I was checking my dA message center on the phone when I saw the journal by fourteenthstar that pre-announced she would have been nominating new seniors during the day. I'm always curious because I like when I recognize somebody from the list

Meet the Fractal Community #14


Hello and welcome to a new edition of Meet the Fractal Community, a forthnightly series of interviews that highlights a member of our community. The series will go back and focus on fractal artists.

Today, let's have a closer look to wolfepaw.

:iconwolfepaw:

Hello wolfepaw! How are you today?

I'm good, Silvia! Keeping busy with my work, my husband and my art. Not nearly enough hours in a day. But, I would like to thank you for asking me for this interview. I’m honored.

Can you introduce yourself to the community?

My dA username is wolfepaw, but my real name is Peggi Wolfe. My education and the majority of my career has been in medical research (35 years of it), most of it spent at Tulane Health Sciences Center (aka Med School). I was born and raised in New Orleans, but Hurricane Katrina took away our house, so I now live in the bustling berg of Natchez, MS. My first submission to dA was actually a photograph in 2007 of fall foliage around our house in Natchez. I never thought much about it until I saw someone had left a comment on the photo and I started interacting with the people of dA. It's been a really wonderful experience and something very different from what I've been used to for most of my adult life and I have enjoyed it immensely and met some really super people. Maybe one day, I’ll actually get to see some of them face to face. That would be cool.

How did you get in touch with fractal art?

I’ve always been a little artsy-craftsy, but I’m not really a talented artist with sketching or painting. I first discovered fractals back around mid 1990s. I actually downloaded some of the software, Fractal Explorer I think it was. But, the interface was totally alien and I had no idea what I was doing and I promptly forgot about it. Then in 2008, I saw a fractal image that a friend found for the wallpaper on her computer. It was gorgeous! I decided to look into it and found that a lot of the software is free for download and that there are tons of free resources for a lot of them. I start first with Tierazon when it was still freeware), then ChaosPro which introduced me to the concept of layers. ChaosPro is a good program to start with and is a reasonable lead-in to UltraFractal (one of my favorite fractal programs!) and how layers work. Then, I found Fractal Explorer and my eyes started to pop out of my head and I spent hours playing with that. Then, I found the glory hole "Apophysis" and the real fractal love affair started! 

I won my first Apo challenge with Spiral Fan. 

Spiral Fan by wolfepaw 

I was so excited! I had actually been voted the winner and I couldn't believe it!! Then, I started making fractal collages using individual "fractalets" I created in Apo. I had so much fun and learned a whole lot about digital editing. Then I won my first contest with the “Apo Rainbow Garden”. 

Apo Rainbow Garden by wolfepaw

That was just the beginning of many hours of great fun making fractals and making new friends through fractal art. There are so many really nice people who are happy to share their expertise to help out new artists. I know I benefitted greatly from these artists and I owe them a large debt of gratitude for helping me grow and enhance my artistic nature.

From your gallery, it's evident that you don't stick to only one fractal program, but use several. Is there one of them that you prefer the most?

Boy, that's a tough question. I would have to say it's a toss-up between Apophysis 7X (Apo - thank you, Xyrus-02) and UltraFractal (UF - thank you, Frederik Slijkerman). I love them both and I find it depends on the look I want as to which one I will go to. They are both very versatile and they both make really beautiful fractals, but I find the look distinctly different, most of the time. I can usually look at a fractal and tell if it's Apo or JWildfire (JW) as opposed to UF or Fractal Explorer (FE) and a whole lot different from Mandelbulb3D fractals. I also love Mandelbulb 3D because of the awesome navigation you can use to look into the images and the amazing 3D fractals it makes! They look more "steampunk" or sometimes even mechanical to me than Apo, UF, JW or FE. I know there are other programs, but I think if I keep trying to learn too many fractal programs, I may not be real good at any of them. But, I just opening up the software and trying out new formulas (UF or MDB3D) or tutorials or plug-ins (Apo) or even more fun, params that other artists share to let the rest of us "tweak" to our heart's content! (I much better at "tweaking" than I am at "twerking").

What would you like to experiment in future?

I would love the learn JWildfire! I have tried it a couple of times and I must be dense, but I can’t seem to get it to work well for me. Plus, it tends to freeze on my laptop, so I take it out every now and then and give it another try. If you know anyone who can recommend a good beginning tutorial for it, I would be very appreciative! I’ve seen some really beautiful fractals and from what I can tell, you can do layers with it. That’s something I wish Apo could do. That’s one of the reasons I love UltraFractal. The ability to make layers and use masks and different blending options can really make a fractal pop!!!

Is there any deviant you'd like to recommend to your audience and why?

That is a really hard question. There are many fractal artists who I think are very talented and stretch the envelope on the craft to amazing degrees. But, if I have to pick one, I would like to recommend Velvet--Glove :iconvelvet--glove: (Chris Martin). I have watched her for years and, to me, her UltraFractal work, in particular her flower and jewel series, are jaw-droppingly gorgeous!!! She is very supportive and offers tips and hints, though she only shares her params for certain things, mostly for instructional purposes. But, I just drool over her work. Her other UF work is wonderful as well, but there’s something magical about her flowers and jewels. So, I can wholeheartedly recommend :iconvelvet--glove: to the community. Here are just a few examples of her artistry:

Jewel of Atlantis by Velvet--Glove Sapphire Scarabs by Velvet--Glove Midwinter Festivity by Velvet--Glove The Arrival of Spring by Velvet--Glove

Amazing, aren't they? Just superb!

We're done! Thank you for your time Peggi!

Thank you so much again, Silvia, for requesting the interview! I hope the readers enjoy it.

Be sure to visit wolfepaw's profile and gallery! :love:
