I've been uploading images for a couple months now and getting some great feedback so I thought I'd tell you a little about myself.
I'm 46 years old and live in beautiful East Tennessee in the United States.
I am a Software Engineer by trade but I've been an artist of one form or another since I was young. My personality profile rates me as "Analytical / Expressive" which pretty much fits my career / art choice. I started drawing in pencil and charcoal. I soon got into photography and had the wonderful fortune of marrying my childhood sweetheart who just happened to be stunningly beautiful and one heck of a model. I also live near the Great Smoky Mountains which are part of the Appalachian chain. Great source of photography subjects!!
I pretty much got out of art altogether when my two beautiful daughters came along. I'm a bit of an athlete (baseball, softball, basketball, soccer) and my daughters are taking after me! They keep me very busy running from practice to practice while I still try and squeeze in my league games. Anyway, I still find time to fit in a little art every now and then. A friend of mine pointed me to DAZ studio, a wonderful free 3d art software product. I fooled with it for a short period and then had to have Poser. I'm learning from the ground up and I think it shows in how my images are improving. I'm a BIG fan of Boris Valejo, a science fantasy artist. I think my work looks a lot like his "style".
Anyway, I hope you are enjoying my images. I'm sure enjoying your comments. As you can see above, I'm a busy man with my sports and my daughters' sports so please forgive me if I'm a little slow putting up new images.
And, as always, thanks for the great comments and THANKS FOR LOOKING!!!
