I first started using Animation Master 98 and Poser 3. I created independent computer games using the Game Creation System in the early 2000's. I created my figures using AM for use in my games.
One I did was a friends band http://guitar-lord.tripod.com/ The game files are gone. I also created Cannibal Island and Desert Raider.
I also created a couple animated shorts using AM, which looking back at them, they are terrible.
For the last 3 years or so I've been using Carrara and Daz Studio. Mostly as a hobby. I also sell backgrounds I create to the action figure community for use as backdrops to their displayed action figures.
Right now I'm working on a couple comic books using Carrara.
Holy Toledo and Shadowman which can be seen at http://dogst.com/
I also use Anime Studio and created a little short called Stripper Agent https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3WUeQ7p340
