Bios<br /> I began my computing life on a commodore vic20 and I started playing with 3d ray tracing programs in 1984 on an Amiga 500. In these days I run on Windows7 64-bit with an i7 and 12 gigs of ram and 1.7 gig 295 GPU video card. My programs of choice for 3D is Poser7 Pro, Carrara 7 Pro, Vue6.5 infinite, Lightwave 8.5, Modo 401, Z-Brush 4, 3D Coat3.5 . For the 2D stuff CS2, Painter 10, Particle illusions, Apophysis206_3Dhack . So as you can see I have a huge arsenal of programs to get the job done. One thing I do believe in is being able to model and customise your own stuff, and creating your own textures, if you can't then you are at the mercy of other peopleâ€™s thoughts. I never stand on the one spot for long Iâ€™m constantly developing different technique and styles from 2D to 3D I want to learn it all, and my best advice to people is knowledge is you best weapon, in being a better artist. If you have to pay for good tutorials do it, live on the forums this is the best free source you can get, and never give up.<br /> Screen Name<br /> Where did the name Midnight_stories come from? Well I grew up reading comics like eerie and creepy I love the darker things, and evil fascinates me. I wanted to produce comic like those, ones that made you think. So I named myself Midnight_stories.<br /> Â <br /> Devil Dog Studios<br /> I was member of Devil Dog Studios, it all started with Christopher Haigood (AKA) mestophales , contacting me about doing morphs for the Manitou and one thing led to another. They needed someone who could do morphs and rigging, I may have stretched the truth a bit about the rigging, but donâ€™t tell Brent. Â They gave me the Creech to rig from scratch, and it was sink or swim stuff for me. It was a 2-3 week deadline and I had to learn quick there was no help out there, I quit a few times but the guys kept telling me you can do it. We got there in the end and the Creech ended up being one of the best Â figures in Poser 8, well I guess that a matter of opinion. Weâ€™ve all moved on from those days but still stay in contact and continue to work on projects together. I have a lot to thank DevilDogStudios for and they helped me to become what I am today.<br /> These Days<br /> These days I have my own store and do this full time, Iâ€™ve streamlined character development from a month into a week ,sometimes days. I have a big base mesh library thanks to mestophales and Vlk. Iâ€™ve been doing more modelling than rigging lately so I hope the quality is lifting. So thatâ€™s about it. If anyone wants to throw ideas at me feel free to contact me here or at my web site.<br /> Well thanks for looking and I'll see you on the edge, when the time comes.<br /> All the best !!!!<br /> From the mind on the other side<br /> Midnight.<br /> Blog Page
