My Bio
Fractals. Nihilism. Dada. Op Art. It's all good, and I'm just here (occasionally) to support surrealism in particular and great or really aspiring artists in general. I stick to freeware here because it's hard to get results which are *that* bad from commercial 3D, media, and VFX software. I also like the geometry and look of many generated fractals, and believe they are nice not only in their own right but useful in other art/media projects. BTW, the "ID" image above was made in Xaos...I have the best luck with JWildfire. Cheers!

Favourite Visual Artist
Salvador Dali
Favourite Movies
Casablanca, Rear Window, The Big Country, The Producers (1968)
Favourite TV Shows
Reruns from the Dinosaur Era! But also South Park and Robot Chicken/Aqua Teen type shows. Oh, and especially Patrick McGoohan's 1960's anthology "The Prisoner".
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
Beatles, Stones, Genesis, and many more from days of yore...and that Oasis isn't too bad!
Favourite Books
Too many to mention.
Favourite Writers
Hannah Arendt, Aeschylus, Shakespeare, Steinbeck
Favourite Games
Chess; backgammon (which my wife never loses to anyone in!)
Favourite Gaming Platform
Steam ('cause I've been involved in making games)
Tools of the Trade
From little old GIMP to gigantic Boxx monster-machine apps...but art is not determined by size or price alone!
Other Interests
Living up to others' perceptions I'm akin to somewhere between Peter Cushing's Dr. van Helsing and Chris Eccelston's Dr. Who

Thanks Everyone For A Great 2015, Goodbye!

Thanks Everyone For A Great 2015, Goodbye!

About 3,000 pageviews for a wifto with only 70 pieces in his gallery as this is written...about 42 pageviews per piece is a pretty good average for an account that gets zero pushing, no daily deviations, does nothing to warrant being "undiscovered talent" to DeviantART staff, encounters "closed" or hardly attended Groups that constantly reduce odds of being seen, and has many of my genres' artists with similar or smaller averages for all their myriad pieces urging hatred of my name. A TRULY surreal experience, so how did all this start, and will it keep on going? Way back in July 2013, after years of assorted folks telling me DeviantART was

On My JWildfire Fractals

On My JWildfire Fractals

Until the last year or so, JWildfire did not have an internal layering component; it was make and render one flame at a time, and sometimes I would have to composite its renders outside of the app, such as using JW renders as backdrops for renders out of Sterling 2, Apo 7x. Then arrived a new JWildfire feature: "Layerz", which allows placing one atop another as many flames as you deem needed and your computer can handle. You can place each flame as you like by first setting whatever camera distance and x or y axis for that fractal, then appending it to another already loaded layer(s); this definitely qualifies as "fractal manipulation", but

What You Still Can Do With Freeware.

What You Still Can Do With Freeware.

View samples of my work at: http://kofferwortgraphics.daportfolio.com . Though for the deviantART community most of my postings are fractals, examples of compositing, texture creation, reference art, and typography are displayed. All of the portfolio artwork was created in open-source software, except for JWildfire which is freeware; for me, JWildfire offers a challenging but rewarding tool for surrealistic expression in re art for art's sake. The hope is to demonstrate understanding of proprietary and more automated art software, through translating their functions into results with less intuitive programs. As well, it is hoped more people
