What inspired you ?

That's it. What or who inspired you to get into online digital art?

For me it was Kelly McLaron at Topaz Design

When I saw " Palace Of Marisandara " late 1998, this was the inspiration. Please see this link: http://topazdesigns.com/bryce/marisandra.htm

I went out and bought Bryce. Could never even come close to this artwork. Still can't.

I remember joining up at Skinz.org 1999, Shaggot was a moderator there. He kept on declining my uploads.

A very nice lady, Jsenn, was there at Skinz.org. She later became an administrator at Deviantart. She wrote beautiful poetry. She wrote to me,commented, she inspired me. Because of her, I never gave up.

New folks, never give up. Believe in your self.

Now tell us, what or who inspired you?

I found a site called Caedes.net. It was my first real exposure to digital art. I must have downloaded 4 or 5 gigs of wallpapers. They seemed to be having so much fun, that I wanted to try. My first venture was terragen because I didn´t have the money to buy (still don´t) and it was free. I was never very good at it but I liked messing with it. I also tried tierazon and ultra fractal. One day while surfing the net, I found Apophysis and fell in love. Not very good at it but I love it. I left Caedes about a year after I started. To many flame wars and too much drama. Found Skinbase and been here ever since.

Sorry I got carried away. Me and my mouth. Booming love

I knew Grimspoon. He ran his own site where he started the idea of selling your artwork before many other sites. I agree, Nikos is one of the very best!

Just dusted off Bryce again.

On a crisp Fall day, I turned at saw an old "antique" wheel with its reflection in a puddle. I took a picture of it. I don´t think I ever looked at anything the same way again. That single capture elevated me somehow...

For me, a very inspiring moment.
