I have a story I would like to share.....Many years ago I had the opportunity to follow my dreams and go to art school. But because I didn't believe or have faith in myself I never did. Instead I studied electronics engineering technology in college and graduated at the top of my class landing a pretty good job at a large telecommunications company in Toronto Canada. A couple of years ago I became very ill and could not work for almost a year and a half....It was during this time that I found Renderosity. To be totally honest, it was a complete fluke. I was fascinated with these new art forms and the talent & imagination of the artists. Learning Poser & PhotoshopCS3 saved my sanity through this time peroid...I know this will sound strange but even though it was the worst year of my life it was in a small sense the best year of my life...After 25 some odd years ( yup, I'm an old broad but young at heart ) I have been reunited with my first true love...Art. I have been given a second chance. I'm back at work now but on a reduced work week...I don't have the time I used to have for my art...but what really matters is that I do have my art :) I guess what I'm trying to say is that sometimes life is very difficult & painful but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Don't give up hope. Don't be afraid to believe in yourself. Just don't give up :)

I can relate. You will see a similar story at my homepage. What I didn't say there was that I too went through a long period of pain as I recovered from surgery and it was during this time that I found such a release in my return to arts. But work has never been as satisfying since.

Thank you for sharing.
I only discovered Poser about 7 years ago when I quit work to become my wife's full-time caregiver. I can't draw or paint, but I now have this as a creative outlet which is helping to keep me sane also.
I think a lot of us came to (or came back to) art of whatever kind in order to keep us sane. Or as sane as artists are, anyway. :)
And the image is very beautiful.
