Who is Propschick?
I live in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. (USA). I am 34 years old, a mother of a 16 year old (Chris), married to a wonderful man (Walter), have 2 kitties (Lilly and Veruca), and work in the 3D communities full time. I love movies, music, art of all types, books, and I adore 3D.

How long have you have you been involved in digital art?
I got my first computer in 1998. Opened photoshop for the first time in 2002, learned to model last year!

What are you currently working on?
12 different things, hairs, jewelry, clothing, hair fits, promos , not in that order, lol

What software do you use and why?
Poser 7, Cinema 4D, and I prefer Paint Shop Pro 9 over Photoshop

Where do you find inspiration for your products?
TV, magazines, online art, everyday life.

Do you have any advice for aspiring Digital Content Developers?
YES! Don't give up for starters. That's the most important will have ups and downs, highs and lows in your content creation, but don't get discouraged and don't give up! Learn something new weekly, try new things. If there's an area that you feel you are weak in, build that skill. There's always room for improvement and every product that doesn't sell will only strengthen your future projects that will. Ask for help when you are stuck. There are so many forums and people in the community willing to help and walk you through anything, you just have to ask.
Did I mention don't give up ?

How has this online Community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning?
Well I've met so many wonderful people on Rendo: Bobbie25, who was willing to teach me modeling, rigging and all the basics I needed to learn modeling when I couldn't understand online tutorials on my own. She has spent hours with me teaching me and putting up with me, to me she is my 'modeling angel' !
Others who have inspired me or encouraged me at some point , such as RebelMommy, Adiene, Liladieni, Kaleya, DebbieM, Countess, -Silver-, SciFiBabe, -BrandyE-, RGUS, Fabiana, BlazerWiccan, Vexiphne, Igolochka, OutofTouch, Mairy....and sooooo many others I have missed, have each spoken encouraging words that have stuck with me over the last 2 years and have really meant a difference to me as I've worked hard in the 3D world. I thank you all for this and if I missed someone here, I apologize. There are soooo many wonderful people in this community!
I will say getting to know fellow vendors, artists and other members on Renderosity has been a delight!

Do you have any final words?
If you think you cannot make a living at this, then you can't. If you know you can, then you will !
