Sorry for my lack of activity, anyway I can't miss to make an entry for The Great Mandelbulber!!!
We hit the 5th issue, so let's celebrate it with Evgenia Katya Lyubeznaya-Golovchenko, better known as *0cQfe77a588aeM
One of my favourites, for her incredible surreal scenery to her polls (check them out!).
Hello *0cQfe77a588aeM! Tell us something about you.
Going back, I studied art in college, but wanted to study more academics much to the dismay of my art professors. Then Maths and Languages professors were dismayed at my will to still study art. I've been at odds ever since. As many will attest. I like changing my name on deviantart, wish I could change it every 2 weeks. Favorite colors are the greens, golds, oranges and turquoises. Favorite combination is green, black and white. It has to be the right green tho. Very, very hard to find.When did you start making fractals?
Got interested in fractals back when a guy at work gave me the book Chaos Making A New Science
by Gleick. Then my boss put an early fractal program on my computer, never did find out which one it was. Around the mid-to-late 90's, tried with David Makin from England to get his program working on my old computer. Next, discovered the Tierazon fractal program by Stephen Ferguson, a Ukrainian mathematician living in US. Found it to be highly user-friendly. Used Tierazon for about 10 years until the last of my brains fell out. How did you discover Mandelbulb 3D?
I discovered the similar Chaospro somewhere first and someone saw those and suggested the Mandelbulb3D program from fractalforums. Been using it ever since.Is there any formula you use more often than the others?
I like the Amazing Surf, and most of the Mengers.Why do you prefer to work with Mandelbulb 3D?
I find it to be massively weird. Yes, that's the attraction. Is there a fractal of yours you're most proud of?
Hard to answer.. not satisfied with hardly any and cannot figure out which ones people will like, but... I do kind of like Skywood. It expressed my love for the sky.Is there any deviant or artist which is inspirational to you?
I really admire the fractal mandelbulb animators such as ~FractKali
and others. Also, the people who keep experimenting fantastically with color, such as *Theli-at
, are very inspiring to see.Is there any advice you'd like to give to someone who have just started making fractals?
Yes, if you try the tutorials, don't get discouraged if your result is different from the tutorial, that's the fun of discovering new patterns. Also, be aware of lighting & contrast! And, lastly, make billions of fractals no matter what. Are you interested in experimenting with other means of art?
Had thought I wanted to do more painting, but find I'd rather get a decent camera and start with long exposure light photography. This is until I can think up some new genre of art, such as coating myself in multiple Holi festical colors and rolling around on a canvas coated with white chocolate buttercream frosting.Anything else you'd like to say?
Yes, in answer to your hidden question that I'm not supposed to answer, What did I do last Saturday?: I made a short funny video for a DJ friend. In it, I am attempting to imitate him. Next, I'd like to make a video for youtube of strange disappearing Tetris cookies & pillows in my home.
(She asked me "What are the questions?" and I replied "What did you do last Saturday? "
Thank you very much *0cQfe77a588aeM
