I was looking around and found DAZ.  It has become my recent hobby.  I don't really have a background in art, but I have always liked to draw and this seems like a good extention of that.  Sometimes it seems like I could draw faster than working in 3d, but I believe they both have their pros and cons.  I really like lighting and I am trying to get better at that.  Cinema 4d has a better material / lighting engine than DAZ but I like the 3d characters in DAZ.  I am married and have a couple beagles, they do keep me busy in the summer. Other hobbies include sports, I play ice hockey, pretty much year round, and I enjoy tennis and some other sports as well.  Thanks for checking out the art.  Element
