Meet the Fractal Community #10

Fri Aug 23, 2013, 1:50 AM
:ahoy: Hey everybody ! 

Welcome to the tenth edition of Meet The Fractal Community !
In few words, Meet The Fractal Community is interview with an artist of our beloved fractal community.

This week let's have a closer look to lindelokse!

First of all , please introduce yourself to the community.
My name is Chiara, I'm a young architect from Italy and I'm a pathological Apophysis addict. I love art, nature, 80s music, fantasy, dogs, fat animals, action movies, and I greatly enjoy being immature.

Tell me how to call you? Do you go by your Name or an artistic pseudonym?
Either way is fine for me :) My nickname here comes from Tolkien's world which was one of my greatest passions as a child.

How did you discover deviantART Chiara ?
I was looking for good resources: textures, stock images, photoshop brushes, etc. Then I decided to join to thank and support the resource providers... it didn't take long to fall in love with all the beautiful art here, and to start collecting favorite deviations

What is your earliest Artistic memory ?
Artistic is a term I never liked much when refered to me, I prefer to talk about creative memory instead :) 
As every child did, I used to draw a lot and write stories and poems all the time. The odd thing is that I rarely completed any. Stories were only incipit, drawings always lacked complete coloring... this was probably due to my terrible habit to start hundred of projects all together, quickly get bored and suddenly start something new.

How did you discover fractal? And why did you want to create some ?
I was browsing galleries on deviantART and I randomly stumbled upon "Under River" by ~imaginum.
I was completely amazed and fascinated. Then I kept on browsing the fractal gallery and saw works by ~Zueuk, `MichaelFaber, `JoelFaber, *Pasternak... and they made me even more interested and charmed. I HAD to make such images too, it was too strong an impulse

Are you empirical or academically trained?

Half and half. I am a graduated architect so my university studies and work experiences may have influenced and strenghtened my interest and affinity with digital graphics. The rest is improvisation and a lot of learning from fellow fractalists' teachings :)

What's your favorite tool of trades and why ?
Apophysis, clearly! Every little thing it does is magic, in Police's words... it's like painting with numbers.
I also deeply love Photoshop, and use it mostly for work purpose.

What are your favorite kind of fractals ?
Those that convey the feeling that "something's goin' on", that something of amazing is happening, regardless of complexity, subject or technique used. There must be an involving content, emotionally or dynamically speaking.

If you have to choose only one fractal in your gallery which one would it be and why ?
I'm particularly fond of my "Eternal" flame. 
Eternal by lindelokse
It was one of the first 3d blooms I made, it took so many days of work to craft, so many versions and details to refine, and a lot of help from *zy0rg too! Also, it's a raw flame, so no postwork on it, raw apophysis outcome

Do you have some tips for new comers in the fractal art world ?
Be prepared to get inevitably addicted!


Always aim to diversity, and never hesitate to walk outside the path and take your own road. At any time.

Be patient. Take time to refine your work, never be happy with the first version only, you can always dobetter. Details are too important to be forgotten.

I've got one more question for you... if you were the last one standing in the world, what would be the first thing you would do ?
Such a cruel question, being alone is my worst nightmare! I'd probably look for a pet to get some company... even a plant would do, if animals were all gone too... give me a Wilson to talk to!

I hope you guyz enjoy this article and are ready for the next one !!
Have fun and stay devious :heart:
