Started doing 3d stuff way back a long time ago on a trusty old Amiga using Turbo Silver and then Imagine3D. Started out on Poser when I got a free give away copy on a cover disc of poser 3.
Mainly as a figure study for painting and drawing. But progressed to the newer versions and started to find a real interest in it and what they could do.
Still class my self as a beginner although I suppose I should not call myself that anymore.
Maybe a struggling novice lol.
