May 2009 Artist of the Month - carlx!

Each month the Renderosity community votes on The Renderosity Artist Of The Month [AOM] ... May's AOM is Károly Németh [carlx]!

We congratulate carlx for an outstanding collection of works in the Fractal Gallery!

Who is 'carlx', and how did you come by that username?

First of all: Thanks for nominating me and voting me in. My real name is Károly Németh. I live in Hungary with three wonderful ladies: wife and two daughters. Károly is equal to: Carl, Karl, Charles, etc. When I tried to register my first email adress many years ago, I tried carl, but it was reserved, so I tried some variations and carlx was the winner. After that I used carlx.

How long have you been working with computer graphics?

My first computer was an Amiga 500 in 1993, and one year later Amiga 1200. In this time I used Imagine 3D, Real 3D, DPaint, Ppaint and Vista. I bought my first PC in 1998. I used Imagine 3D for modeling and Bryce for rendering and some application. After some years - when I didn't work with computer graphics - in 2006's autumn I read the news of free Bryce 5.0 and I returned. Always fascinating for me were the fractals, and I started into the fractal world.

Do you have any traditional art experience?

No, I'm self-taught.

Cubic Universe

What are you currently working on?

Now, I'm work with some old and unfinished works with Ultra Fractal and XenoDream.

What software/equipment do you use and why?

My main programs: Ultra Fractal and XenoDream, but I also use Apophysis, Fractal Explorer, Bryce and Terragen, too. Why? I think Ultra Fractal and Xenodream are the best programs to create fractal images. My future plan to go back to 3D modeling and learning Blender 3D.


What is it that you like about creating Fractal Art?

I love fractal art for the unlimited possibilities, and variegation for the sake of.

What do you think your best piece of work is and why?

It's a hard question... My best piece is always what I just worked on.

Who, or what, inspires you, and how do you get your ideas?

Many things and many artists inspire me. I like the photos, surreal compositions, Terragen, Vue, MojoWorld images, and sci-fi or fantasy 3D scenes...and naturally, I love the Fractal arts. Some names, without the claim of completeness: Yvonne Mous, Juliette Gribnau, Joseph Presley, Dirk Monteney, Rick Spix, Jock Cooper, Linda McCarthy, Elizabeth Mansco, Jollyself, Réal Joly...

How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning?

Renderosity is a fantastic community...very colorful, interesting and useful.

Summer Touch

Do you have any parting comments, or advice for other artists?

My advice is very simple: Try to realize your dream and take it easy!

Carl is probably the most talented Fractal artist I've run into. His work is so stellar. I've known him in Renderosity for several years and he has always been supportive, a true gentleman and a lovely friend. He deserves the highest recognition for his talent and for his high level of skill.
