My name is Chris. Online I'm known as Hex or CTA, or something like that :)
Welcome to my Renderosity homepage I guess... I love to make art and have always loved working with Photorealism and/or Poser Pin-ups. I'm still learning, so comment and help me improve! :D
BIO Well, I suppose when I was younger I had an urge to make my own computer games... but I had pretty much no knowledge of how that worked. My dad gave me some software and I thought I could make games with it, but I got rather confused the instant I got in the program. I uninstalled it and left it in the back of the cupboard somewhere...
In later years I had a flashback of that software. I wanted to get into 3D and while I was cleaning out the cupboard I found the PC Pro disk. "trueSpace 3.0 SE". The software that got me started... I had a bit of a play with it, made some basic models, but I knew that I wasn't going to become very good at it. When I managed to get the internet on my computer I looked for later versions of the software and found trueSpace 3.2. The google search brought me to a link within the wonderful site, Planit3D. I became a member and learned about Poser. Once I got my hands on it I had another great big learning curve and years went by of me making and improving on Poser and trueSpace Digital art.
Rather close to the present time now, I managed to get my hands on 3DS Max 7! Using help from an enormous thread at Facepunch Studios, I learned the ways of HDRI. Not only that, but I learned how to incorporate models from Half-Life 2 into that. I'm hoping to share as much of my best work as I can on Renderosity and I hope you like what Art I have to share. :)
