aka piritipany on D.A.
Rob has been deeply interested in computer generated graphics since the IBM PC came along in the mid 80's. His work in the IT industry gave him access to good computers.
Rob spent many hours in the ApoShack learning from the amazing artists that frequented the chat room. People like Light herself, who was inspirational.
He was hooked. Mandelbulb3d gave him the ability to create fabulous (to him anyway) structures and scenes.
He was mainly self-taught but have learned a lot from parameters shared by others which is one reason why he always share his parameters.
Initially he ignored the difs formulas but eventually started playing with them and, since then, he mainly uses those.
These days he loves the decombinate-mix mode and sometimes wishes there were more than six formula slots available.
He currently spends a lot of his free time in the Mandelbulb Maniacs Facebook group posting amazing art and giving others the opportunity to tweak his wonderful parameters.
