3d Digital Phenoms

In the course of research and development of this skill....one of the most amazing art portfolios I've enjoyed is that of 3d CAD programmer, designer & fine artist Dirk Monteny. If you use Xenodream -- you've likely used his fractal parameter files to build on.

He set a paradigm for the use of fractal in design.

Although he passed on in 2008 -- his gracious family maintains galleries of his originals on Renderosity.com

I've never really thought about the legacy of art before now.

I think it's very cool that his family maintains his galleries so people can continue to enjoy his work.

I am.....=)

They are incredibly unique.

I enjoy how his explorations create such a variety of style.

I'm intrigued by Fate Twister.

From his 50 years in this realm -- an incredible legacy.

The pathos of his writing, especially on reflections of dealing with his illness -- is also memorable.

There are some amazing artists on R'osity. It's a good place for them to keep his work. Uh, Carmen, the link with Dirk's name goes to work inspired by him. Wasn't sure if you realized that or not.

He's got some awesome fractals.

Yes, I did realize -- I'd transposed my intent is all ;) Adjusted now -- first link goes directly to his 36 page portfolio -- thanks :)

That he created the originals that so many artists build on in fractal programs like Xenodream is a mind blower.

Exploring the territory of his incredible imagination is pure soul food.

Not a problem. :-)

I don't know if I have Xenodream or not, but that is most definitely a mind blower.

Agreed.

Carmen,

Dirk's work was amazing and still stands as some of the best work ever produced with XenoDream. I was inspired by his work to create these pieces in XD:

'was' = 'is' when it comes to art innovator Dirk Monteny -- most assuredly will stand the test of time, Manny ;)

Inspiration + + + I created these for fun last week -- your dropshadow play reminded me to resurrect them.
