Greetings, my name is Ian. I started in 3D about 4 1/2 years ago with Poser. Since then I expanded my toolchain to C4d and Vue in 2007. In 2008 I began modeling props and jewelry in addition to creating images.
My goal is to create pseudo realistic images that combines components of both a painting and a photorealistic render. I have a few guiding principles when creating my images. I always use my own backgrounds (when used), I never use background packages or backgrounds created by others. I always postwork my images, particularly hair, eyes and lips. I rarely use a purchased models texture "as-is", and prefer to modify them in photoshop to create a unique skin texture.
Tools of the trade:
Dell Precision 490, Quad Proc w/8GB RAM
Nvidia Quadra 4600
Wacom Intous 3
LG 22" Widescreen Monitor
Software: Poser 7, Vue 7, C4d 11, Zbrush 3, Photoshop CS
