Well, I'm a very young minded middle-aged wife and mother of three nearly grown up kids. I might well consider myself a "hobbyist artiste" in a delusional state.
I started playing around with PSP, Photoshop & Illustrator a long, long time ago - too far back to remember exactly. Then a couple of years ago I started experimenting with Daz Studio just for the hell of it and because it intrigued me. Needless to say, it wasn't long before I gave up. Brain frazzled! Stopped and started quite a few times. Recently started messing about with it again and to toughen up I added Poser into the loop. These days I don't quit so easily and am determined to master both, perhaps before I kick the bucket and return from whence I came......... lol.
