I'm still pretty much a novice in the 3D world, but I like to think I'm improving all the time. Trained as an artist over 20 years ago, but set off on a completely different career path that left little time for art until a couple of years ago. After a half-hearted start in Rhino, I recently discovered Silo and latterly 3D-Coat. Amazing software! I use them in conjunction with Paint Shop Pro to produce work for Poser - if I find time I should also try and learn Daz Studio.
To those who buy my work - a big thank you - one day I might earn enough to make a semblence of a living at this! But if not, I'll still do it anyway.
