I first joined deviantArt via my rubydeva page, which I occasionally still use for my photography. I may one day revamp it with a fancier name. So I have been on deviantArt since June 21, 2003 via my original account and I have been known as deadened-glow since December 18, 2007. I started this account as at the time, you could not change your username and I wanted a different account for my fractal artwork. 

daffodil by jerrodbug
This was the very first piece that got me interested in Apophysis. By the time August 2005 rolled around, I was creating fractals that I posted to my rubydeva account.

Other deviants that inspired me:
Summer Colors by SuicideBySafetyPin
SuicideBySafetyPin is a deviant that also has great knowledge and her artwork has blossomed. She's also a great person to chat with! :)

Rose Nebula WS by Casperium
I chose this by Casperium because I have tried a couple attempts at Apophysis Nebulas but haven't quite mastered it and I have always loved Ali's nebulas. I squee whenever she releases a new one! :D

Checks by Colliemom
Colliemom was one the first people I used to go to for help with resources. She is one of the first people I met outside of deviantArt, as she lives nearby to where I live in North Dakota. She was extremely helpful to me in my Apo beginnings.

Remote by Xyrus-02
I choose this artwork, because Xyrus has become a good friend over my time on dA and he is typically one of the people I ask questions about Apophysis.

I wish I could add all the other artists that have inspired me over the past 9-10 years I have been using Apophysis. Maybe I'll make a separate journal for that, cause that list is super long! I have also have come to manage the Fractal-Resources and DailyFractalFeatures groups, though with help from some wonderful people! 
I have met so many great friends in the fractal community here on deviantArt, some of which I interact with on facebook and offline. I even have plans to visit some of them in Europe in the future. So my time on deviantArt has been well spent and I look forward to my future time spent on deviantArt. :)

Thank you for the :+fav: of Garden of Cauliflowers4 as well as for the :+devwatch: :happybounce: Maybe you would appreciate my Chaotic series of fractal articles (<- click) if you have a little theoretical interest ;)

Regarding deep zooms in the Mandelbrot set, if you check out my deviation Cauliflowerfort and click the link under "Artist's Comments", from page 4 you can follow the entire zoom sequence in 28 steps :wow:

In this journal you have some links to cool fractal animations I stumbled over at YouTube :wow:

.. and from the middle of the nineties there is a fantastic TV program about fractals, Colors of Infinity by Arthur Clarke :) Really beautiful soundtracks :aww:
