While I went to school for art, I still consider myself an aspiring artist still trying to find a direction. I started off drawing in pencil which transitioned to charcoal and then ended up here in th digital realm. I've never been great with color and struggled for some time trying to find a way to do half my artwork by traditional means and the rest through digital. After various failures trying to scan my sketches or trying out wacom tablets, I found Poser and began my current phase.
I've been using Poser for about four years but still feel like a newbie compared to many of the artist here on Renderosity. I use Poser primarily for the composition of the figure I wish to work with. I then move to Photoshop and with the help of Filter Forge I begin to "throw paint at the canvas" so to speak.
None of this would be possible without the critiques and comments from the Renderosity community, and the Vendors/Artists who provide the amazing products that are the tools neccesary for me to make art. Especially...Godin, Ironman13,P3Design,-Wolfie-, and Propschick.
