Hi there! I'm Thomas alias Thomaniac from Germany. Thank you for the time you spend on my page. As you can see in my gallery I don't want to show one spiral after another (except my "Laquer Spiral" collection), though i like spirals very much, but to try very different styles of fractals. My favorite programs for doing this are Chaoscope, XD, Apo2.0, UF3, and some freeware generators. I started to create fractals september 2004 and meanwhile I'm totally addicted! More and more i love to combine fractals with 3d applications like Vue or Cinema 4D. There are so many possibilities to create nearly endless variations... :-)
Born 1972 I finally made it to an optometrist / optician (Augenoptikermeister) in 2001. Because of the bad job-situation for opticians in Germany i made the (not easy) decision to move to Switzerland, where i lived in Bern from August 05 'till April 06.
Meanwhile i got the rest of my family down here and we now live in Spiez. I'm married since 1996 and have a wonderful little doughter called Denise, born march 2003 and a really sweet little son named Kai (Feb. 2005). If time allows I create some fractals, or play role playing games like Titan Quest or Neverwinter Nights. It's my 2nd passion.
Other hobbies are taking pictures with my Olympus C-4000 Zoom and my Canon Powershot II, and making music on my PC with Fruity Loops.
At last I try myself in Cinema 4D, Vue d'Esprit, Terragen and other programs you can create 3D-Art with. Just feel free to take a look at my private homepage under: http://www.thomaniac.ch.vu
And if you like to meet me in the chat just feel free to IM or mail me.
UPDATE: Because of the lot's of photos i've uploaded the last time i've opened a new gallery especially for them. You will find them under "phothomaniac". Or simply follow this link:
