Who is motif? Hi guys, I am pretty sure not many of you know much about me so let me briefly introduce myself. I am Damian from Singapore, born in 1975. I have a diploma in Electrical Engineering (no idea why I end up doing graphics!). I am currently working as a freelance graphic designer and a wedding photographer. How long have you have you been involved in digital art? I began working as a designer about 8 years ago. Started from printers and slowly worked my way up to Ad agencies. Doing textures for models initially started out of curiosity and boredom, enjoyed doing so much that I gave up my full-time job 2 years ago. What are you currently working on? Hopefully after some self studying, I will be able to move on to modeling. Guess it is every texturers' dream to model their own clothing? What software do you use and why? Photoshop (with KPT and Alien Skin plugins) - started using since v1.4, can't live without it since ;o) Freehand - for vector arts. Poser Pro Pack - for rendering and testing. Poser 5 - testing Where do you find inspiration for your products? Everywhere, especially from shopping with my girlfriend LOL Do you have any advice for aspiring Digital Content Developers? Invest some time to understand your software. Do not be contented with just basic knowledge. You will be surprise how much more you can archive. How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning? There are so many wonderful people here who's willing to share and help. Tutorials @ Renderosity has already given me much information needed when I started learning Poser. Do you have any final words? I am very young merchant here @ Renderosity. Being a MOM is definitely a good encouragement and recognition of my work. I want to thank all the people @ Renderosity and the testers for being so helpful all the time, hongyu and Vampir3princess/Lesthat for all the help they have given, Adiene and etcdesigns for all the encouragement and lastly to the continuos support of you guys. Thank you.

Your actually my first look before I even consider buying clothes; I want to see if you have a texture pack for them. I'm completely honest. Your textures are what I look for since I strive so much for realism in Poser. Your textures never let me down and I've said before that I wish you made textures for every piece of clothing I've bought for Aiko. Thanks for all you do!

Congratulations on a well-deserved win. Your texture packs are (like others have said) sometimes the deciding factor in whether I buy an item or not. Keep up the wonderful work!

Congrats! I just got another of your textures and I am absolutely in love (again) with it :)You can tell the quality of certain vendors by the number of comments I get on images. The ones with your textures are always well commented on.
