Been playing at the 3D game since the late 90s and the days of creating text files to describe objects and textures with POVRay. Moved up to blender and then Cinema4D but got tired of having to create everything from scratch.
My preferred weapon of choice is Carrara 8, though I do sometimes miss the beautiful output of Cinema4D's rendering engine. My preferred subject matter tends to be science fictional. As a lapsed writer and having exhausted my authorial voice back in the 90s, I've found the staging of 3D pieces to be a fine way to exercise my imagination and enjoy a very cool hobby at the same time.
Kick back and look around. I hope you have as much fun here as I do.
