Artist of the Month for November, 2017 is


Our artist of the month was chosen from the Writers Gallery at She creates digital art primarily in the fantasy/horror genre and writes in those genres as well. Be sure to check her gallery out plus examples of her writing here.

Here is phoenixwaller's bio at Renderosity:

I started with 3D art at the beginning of 2006. It wasn't long after that I started dabbling with textures, and dreaming of making cool clothes for my poser people. (Who hasn't?) My early work will probably always be relegated to a dark and dusty corner of my hard drive. But as I became more comfortable I started releasing some of my textures and other adventures into this 3D world.

I've decided that I tend to ramble all over the place creatively, and the stuff that I make depends on my muse at the time. So one day I may make something sweet, and the next I'll be working to make the scary image. Who knows?

For more info, sneak peeks of commercial projects, and the freebies that I've released please check my 3D webpage Dreams in Digital Art.

Interview with Artist of the Month: phoenixwaller

When did you join Renderosity? How did you get involved in writing?

phoenixwaller: I joined Renderosity in 2006 when I was first dabbling in art with Daz Studio. As for my writing, I've always considered myself a writer and wrote stories even as a kid.

What's your process for illustrating your stories?

phoenixwaller: I don't illustrate my stories as i go any longer as it used to be a way to help me get into the mindset of the story, but I do make my own covers using Daz Studio and postwork in Gimp. My process is fairly fluid, and I think about the atmosphere of the story and how I want to convey that in an image. Some end up as full images, others with a few props on a simple backdrop.

Who are some of your influences?

phoenixwaller: I think my biggest writing influence is Stephen King. I read his works constantly growing up, and loved the way he spun stories. I don't know if there is a single artist who I see as an influence in my digital art as most of what I make takes on a macabre style that I don't recall being introduced to until after i was already creating my own works.

How has Renderosity impacted you as an artist?strong text

phoenixwaller: Renderosity has given me greater flexibility to express myself through digital art, and when I was posting writing here before I found a friendly and receptive atmosphere.
