The Name of Nibor

Nibor is a pseudonym of a group of artists creating Bryce artwork in the Round-Robin manner (hence niboR <-). One artist starts an artwork and passes it on to the next for improvements. The artwork is then passed on to the next until it reaches the originating artist. This concludes one round. There may be many rounds. The artists communicate with each other and mutually agree when the artwork is considered ripe for publication.

Nibor started in May 2005 and consists of the following artists in order of joining:
David Brinnen, Mablethorpe, UK; Initiator (May 2005)
Horo, (Hans-Rudolf Wernli) Susten, CH; initial member (May 2005)

Source files are exchanged by email, by use of the FTP-account at horo (/david) or by HTTP upload to the horo web account (/55xchg).

Personality of Nibor

In October 2005, Nibor got a fake personality. This became necessary to claim vouchers at DAZ and also to give us a general guideline about topics covered, quality of the works, mode of commenting on comments. David set up psychological attributes and Horo diced the final profile. Nibor has to be male since there are — at present — only males and it would be rather difficult to display the female view of things. Thus, Nibor is:

Motto of Artwork
