Hi

Thanks for visiting my page.

I've been messing around with digital art for about 7 years now. Starting with Poser and then moving to DAZ Studio when they issued the latest versions with Iray.

As you'll see from my gallery I don't have one particular style. I like to try different things. Stretching myself creatively and as I do so I learn more about what I can do. DAZ has many posing/clothing/lighting/material presets that give great results straight "out of the box" so anyone can produce great images with little knowledge of what the application is actually doing. The fun for me is to get "under the hood" and work out why something looks the way it does and what I can do to change it to something more personal to me.

I do commissions/requests (female only) although these may be limited by the scenes/props I have in my runtime (this is not a cheap hobby!).

Finally all these images are copyright to me - please don't use them elsewhere without my permission. If you want to use them please ask me first.

The Last Word
It is with some sadness that I say this will be my last post on DA.

I have become increasing shocked by some of the "art work" on here and disillusion by the DA admin attitude towards it. There are two areas I have issue with.

Firstly I see increasing amounts of digital 3d "artwork" that is paedophilic (child porn) in nature. Pictures that show young females (girls) naked in public. I have complained about these images believing they breach the DA TOS only to be told I need to provide proof the model in the picture is under 18. How can I do that when it's a 3d render? I would argue anyone looking at the picture would see the intention is to portray a child, not an adult. That intention should be enough. If there is any doubt then surely DA has at least a morale duty to err on the side of caution and remove the image.

Now I'm sure some of you will think that it's "art" and as such it should be ok - but that is a weak excuse. Anything that tries to normalise paedophilia is wrong. Period.

Secondly I see an increasing amount of misogynistic (female hating) images. Don't get me wrong I appreciate and understand the allure of BDSM, but images of hanged and impaled women are not BDSM. They go way beyond that, into something I consider quite sinister, particularly as you will see from my gallery I appreciate the female form in all it's magnificent glory.

There is of course an answer to both of the above - just don't look at the images and yes that works for me personally. But I'm no longer prepared to have my art associated with a site that quite happily will host pictures that are in no way in my opinion art (and I would argue in some cases are illegal). Nor will I encourage anyone to visit this site and support it financially. 

I'd like to thank all of you that watched me.

Shake off the Ghosts 2
Another variation on the previous post. Although this is the same skin texture I'm not really happy with it.

Shake off the Ghosts
This is the outcome of a "eureka" moment - when the answer just comes to you.

How are you going to get this old piece of V4 geometry and it's textures to work with DAZ4.9 and IRAY? The original textures I think were set for Poser so they don't translate to Daz (at least I couldn't get them to work straight "out of the box"). In this case it was realising a geometry shell would allow me to layer the textures and use a simple cut out to exclude the bits I didn't need.

Of course I had to make it harder for myself by then adding a L.I.E layer to the skin (for the tattoo), which has the Anagenessis shader added to what was (is) a V4 base texture. Then of course I wasn't content with just a test render so I add scenery, then a mech, then fiddle with the lights, test render, test render, test render...on and on until I think it looks right...

It's been a pleasure. Sometimes the hardest part is coming up with inspiration, you provide that - and as you'll see from my gallery I tend to do lots of different stuff and styles so it's nice to have a concept to start with and work towards it. What I don't want to do is churn out the same style of images all the time. With so many presets available in DAZ it's quite easy to throw out the same style of image quite quickly. I like to stretch myself and try different things. Every time I do I learn something about DAZ and what I need to do to get the end result to look good. Sometimes this works better than other times.
