BIOMy full name is Heinz Dieter Hermann Karl Nachtigall, born 1974. I live in Tingen, a beautiful town near Stuttgart in the south west of Germany. Since I was a little kid I drew. As teenager I got seriously interested in art. I am interested in and like various kinds of art. I studied chemistry because paradoxically it never occured to me, that I actually could make my passion a profession. So now I try change my career. For drawing I prefer pencil, ink, charcoal and pastell crayons. Brushes I only use for miniature painting - I just can't get a feeling for a canvas. I experimented with Coreldraw which lateron led to the 3D-Realm, to Rhinoceros 3d, to be exact - although I recently started to learn Maya. I started to work with soapstone and fell in love this material; it is really awesome to work with - you should try it some time!
I usually hang out in the Rhinoceros 3d Forum, since I'd like to make my living with 3d-design and 3d-applications. I also lurk in other forums (insite and offsite) because it's is so inspiring and stunning to see the works of others - usually I find their work much better and creative then mine *g*. So I work really hard to get better following my motto: Vision is nothing without skill!
