Meet the Fractal community #1

Wed Oct 3, 2012, 1:56 PM
Hey guyz :happybounce:

Welcome to the first edition of Meet the Fractal community ! 
In few words, Meet the Fractal Community will be a bi-monthly interview with an artist of our beloved fractal community.

This week let's have a closer look to coby01 !

First of all coby01, please introduce yourself to the community.
My name is  Coby
I've been married for 42 years, we have 1 daughter and a darling grandson.
We live in the Netherlands, near Rotterdam.
My hobbies are reading , gardening and my PC.

How did you discover deviantART ?
I have discovered DA by playing with Google like a lot's of deviant here :)

And fractals, what about fractals ? How did you discover them and start to create them ?
I started with Ultra Fractal about 5 years ago.
I was a bit on Google, and discovered fractals, and it fascinated me enormously, and I started looking for fractal websites.
This brought me to the "Fractalacademie", where I have learned the principles of Ultra Fractal and Apophysis.
When I could make some good work with UF, I've started to share them on deviantART.

Then I've met Jimmie :iconjimpan1973: who helped me to improve my works.

What's your favorite tool of trades and why ?
My favorite program is Ultra Fractal.
I started with Ultra Fractal about 5 years ago.
On deviantART I've find many tutorials to understand and create better artworks with UF.
Resources were really important to start with this software.

I think Apophysis is also nice, but the program is harder to understand compare to Ultra Fractal.
I do not understand some parts of the program, maybe I have to spend more time in this program. :shrug:

What are your favorite kind of fractals ?
I prefer flowers, because I love flowers, but I like spirals, hearts or jewels.
I love to make concrete shapes, but in fact I like everything that comes from UF !

If you have to choose only one fractal in your gallery which one would it be and why ? 
My favorite fractal is "Love Garden"
GardenLove by coby01
In this fractal I can see my garden full of flowers with my pond and the Magnolia tree reflecting in it.

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 ?
If I am the last person on our planet, I would search for a PC, with UF, and lots of books :rofl:

And you, what could you say about her ?
What to say about coby ... beside being an awesome fractalist, with such a huge talent and a delicate touch, she is one of the kindest people around. 
As for my favorite piece, how to pick among so many great ones? Ha ha it is impossible, so there .. one of her DDs"
Renaissance Flowers by coby01 

hat i really love most about coby01 is the fact that even tho she doesn't speak english very good she is always in chat sharing her knowledges  of course her artwork is totally amazing and she is always willing to help someone out
My most favorite deviation in her gallery is:
GardenLights by coby01
this was a gift to me and i simply adore it!!!!!"

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