Who is Deviney?
A lover of art,photography and creating products that other artist's can use.
How long have you been involved in Digital
Well digital art came later in my life as a sign artist for 20 some yrs.I used a brush and airbrush to make signs and art,and only used a computer then as a tool for signmaking.When I discovered you could do the same digitally as opposed to hand painting I had to learn this because it was here to stay,seeing other sign shop converting to this I had to stay ahead of my competition,sure its quicker and you could change things on the fly but I am so glad that I had hand painting and airbrushing skills which some artist will never experience in this digital world now.Answer to the Question is digitally about 4yrs.
What are you currently working
More brushes of course and refining a few I been working on which feels like forever but they have to be good before I let go of them to the public.Also I get requests to make brushes from other artist's here at Renderosity,which I get a kick out of because I actually do better work for other people than myself.
What software do you use?
Adobe Photoshop,adobe Illustrator,Corel Painter,Corel Draw,Poser 6,and I have Zbrush3.1 but haven't explored it very much,but in generaleverything I do whinds back up in Photoshop.
Where do you find your
In other artists work,nature, all things that surround me everyday.
Do you have any advice for aspiring digital content
Be aware of what other people are creating and do something different.Feel good about what you are making,if you don't feel it ,you can bet the consumer won't either.Give your Best and when someone has a idea or problem get back to them,people really admire and respect that.
How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced
your work, relationships, and learning?
There are some of the best artists in the world are here at Renderosity viewing there work makes me aware what it takes to become the very best,when creating a new piece of art and putting it up so everyone to comment some will give it to you straight telling you your falts which is a great way learn.Communication like this builds relationships,also product reviews gives feedback which all vendors need.
Do you have any final words?
