I suppose since I have been a member since 2003, and it's now 2014, I could go ahead and write something here.
I first started with Poser 5 back in 2004 when I created my first image. It quickly became an obsession and a release for my artistic urges. Since I had to sell my piano, and oil paints took much longer to achieve some sort of relief, CGI filled a void.
At the same time of learning Poser 5, I started learning Photoshop as well. For me, the two go hand in hand.
In my experience, rarely have I had a render come out of Poser ready to go. I love Poser don't get me wrong. It's great for setting up models, and lights and props and poses. Since I was going to take the render into Photoshop anyway to add my signature, I started learing how I can use Photoshop to fix a crease in the model that doesn't look quite right, or how to add ambience to the render to give it the mood I am looking for.
I googled every Poser and Photoshop tutorial I could find, and just started reading and learning and utilizing, and to this day, I still pick up little tricks to enhance my image.
For me this is strictly a hobby. Something to do in my spare time, LOL! well I say spare time like I have lots of it, however, I don't.
I have had offers of creating images for some websites for pay, and illustrations for books, however, after having my own website for a while, I realized just how demanding and tiring it can be.
So for now, I am perfectly happy just creating images for myself, and sharing some of those images here at Renderosity.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
