...And going strong!
It's hard to believe I started this journey back in 2009 - with Poser 8, Photoshop 7, and not a clue what the heck I was doing...
I'm now up to Poser 11.2, Photoshop 2020, DAZ Studio 4.12, and I wonder sometimes if I still don't have a clue - just better toys... 😆
The Girls From T.N.A. is undoubtedly the longest project I've ever worked on (I've had JOBS that didn't last that long..). And it's far from over.
I'm doing a lot of preparation for Chapter 7 - including a lot of retexturing on Tru-Form's amazing yacht, attempting to create some props of my own, writing, re-writing, re-re-writing, and a tiny bit of re-re-re-writing as my 6 remaining brain cells come up with ever more bizarre ideas. There will be new characters, some fun "guest appearances" from some most interesting characters, re-appearances of characters you haven't seen for a while (I've not forgotten about the Gecko and his lizard pals, or the Stooge Aliens). So fasten your seatbelts - it should be an interesting ride...
This image will be the cover page for....... well......a 'special project' for my Patreon supporters. I can't give you a link, or even a text URL, but if you're interested in more info you can stop by my website, linked below.
Anyway, we're approaching the end of another year, and the beginning of a new one. I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday Season, and lots of time to create your wonderful art!
As always, thanks so much for all your visits, faves, likes, comments and support! You're all the main reason I've stuck around for 10 years!

Wonderful cover art! You really have the knack for this! I love hearing of your progress from 2009. I originally started here at 'osity in 2003 but quit after about a year for awhile. Don't remember the exact details but something made me mad so I shelved it. At that time, I had Poser 5 and was putting some Bryce 5 out too. I deleted all that art when I quit. Well, for some odd reason in 2008, I decided to give it a go again. I was still a bit disappointed with 'osity and was just going to do dumb stuff just for laughs and giggles, but as I got back into it, my plans changed. I can't say that I am getting any better, but I am still here and am surprising myself at how much crud I can produce in a year. I still enjoy it. I'm up to Poser 11.2 and still use Photoshop 7. I got Bryce 7 way back the first time it was free and haven't done much with it since. I like to pump out background settings in it from time to time which you see in many of my images. But I'm not a perfectionist. There are lots of flaws in my work as I'm sure many of you notice. But what the heck, I like what I'm doing and for what it is worth, I will continue until I don't like it anymore.
Woo-hoo! And I've known you all this time. It's been my pleasure, Rod. I'm so glad you didn't forget about the Gecko and his lizard buddies This is all threatening to be quite exciting in the coming chapters my friend. Thank you for continuing!
Ten years after, dang how time flies like money. Been a super ten viewing and enjoying this thrilling series Rod. Hope at least ten more. We've know each other a little longer though. All the gals look scrumptious. They make a great promo poster for the event my friend. Whoohoo! 5++
Well, I feel that hearty congratulations are due! You've done really well and openly admitting you were unsure at times what was happening. I must confess, I have not been as adventurous as you and only worked in Poser for a LONG while! Daz Studio is a recent pleasurable shift for me and I'm glad I made the move. Really well done Sir! I take my hat off to you!
