I don't do Commissions.
I absolutely do NOT work for free.
I'm a hermit, a house pet, and a self taught artist.
I'm not kidding about the hermit part. Literally, I AM A HERMIT. I'm happiest when I'm just. left. alone.
I bury myself in my art. It's my preferred way to escape from everything.
I use Poser 10, Photoshop CS6, and an Intuos4 drawpad.
I'm a traditional artist and photographer who transitioned over to digital.
Way back, when I was a traditional artist I tired of drawing myself, or from photos of friends as reference, so a fellow artist suggested I try Poser in order to have an always accessible reference model. I soon discovered that digital art was the way I wanted to go, and realized I could cut my work time in half by starting with a generic Poser image and going from there.. I couldn't afford anything other than the base model with no morphs at the time anyway, so I had to learn to paint the skins, faces, clothes, and all the details- because I couldn't buy all the fiddly bits (or find ones that suited me).
More than a decade has gone by since I started, I can now afford any models I want, but a lot of the time I still prefer to paint things to get them just the way I like them.. That's why my images look a little different from most 3d renders- because I throw a lot of digital paint at them too.
Personal Quote: "Every Piece of Art is a Piece of an Artist." -Me
Seriously- every image- someone toiled over it. Someone was expressing something inside of them. Try to keep that in mind when you're looking at an image, its not a mass-churned out thing from some emotionless machine. It's a piece of someone that they chose to pull forth, trap in a visual format, and share with the world. You don't have to love the art, but at least respect the artist's right to express in their own voice.
