I'm a hobbyist when it comes to 3D pictures.
I started 3D many years ago with Imagine on the Amiga. Several years later when I was using a pc, I got a free copy of Poser on a 3D magazine and I was intrigued by it. Eventually I also got a version of Poser 3. Not long after I bought Poser 5 and was hooked.
I use Poser 2014 and Vue 11 mostly, together with Photoshop and a few other 2d graphics programs. I find making pictures to be a great way to relax, and since I can't draw it is a good way to get my ideas out into something "real".
My favourite pictures are those that are left open to interpretation - is the figure we see good or evil? Is this person here a villain, or are they riding to the rescue?
