Well, I guess it's time to update this just a bit. Can't really call myself a beginner anymore (even though some of my stuff still looks like it, lol). It's been an exciting year and a half playing with poser, Photoshop and my Wacom tablet. I'd like to think I've learned a few things. I have no artistic background/education and without the wonderful materials from the vendors here and from other stores, I could never do this. Also, without the constant help and encouragement from my best friend Dennis, I wouldn't have even known where to start. (Thank goodness for Skype.) I'd also like to thank all of you who comment on my work, because frankly, without your support I'd never have found the courage to post here.
