This is my second account on dA (my main account is listed above in the 'About' section) - and it's main focus is on Fractal Manipulations.
When I began 'manipulating' raw fractals...way back before the window was even invented...there wasn't even a term for it, a category for it, or many of us doing even doing it. But I was producing a lot of fractals that I had imported into other art programs, and changing them, and to my mind, for the better.
Since that time, the term 'manipulation' has come in to vogue, and it was given its own sub-category. It was about that time that I decided to have two accounts - my main account - to post raw fractals, and this one - to post manipulations of my raw fractals.
That's my story, and I'm sticking with it.
