|Ooh Look ! A Flower ! Can I blast it ?|
|I'm definitely no 'artist', just a guy who uses clever computer software to convert some of the ideas in my head into something visual. And quite often I find that playing with that very same software puts even weirder ideas into my head, e.g. this one 3dcheapskate.deviantart.com/ar… ...|
I love browsing through pages of random thumbnails and clicking on anything that looks interesting, but very few places have a random option for browsing.
I rather dislike the omnipresent "Popular" / "What's Hot" / "Trending" options. I don't really care what other people like. Guess what ? I actually have a mind of my own !
(I also dislike the "Undiscovered" option here at DA. How can anything that's only been posted for a few days, or that already has 20+ 'favourites' possibly be considered 'undiscovered', eh ?)
Despite this I've found quite a few pictures here at DA that I do like.
I'm definitely no artist.
I was born a few years before the first moon landing - I don't remember it although I was old enough to draw crayon pictures complete with lunar and command modules, space monsters, and cowboys with giant springs in their boots. That's probably still the best picture I've ever created.
When I was a kid I used to have an Action Man (the British version of the G.I. Joe action figure) and occasionally spent time setting up scenes with bricks and stones and twigs for him to have adventures in.
Today I'm an adult (although I know many people who'd question that). Instead of paper and crayons, or an Action Man with piles of mud and sticks and stones, I now have a computer, some clever software (Poser, Blender, DAZ Studio) and a content library.
But my mind is still the one that delights at the thought of cowboys with giant springs in their boots on the moon.
You'll also find me at ShareCG, DAZ3D, HiveWire3D, and maybe a couple of other places - I'm user 3dcheapskate wherever I go (so far), and at any time I'm usually active at one or other of these places.
I lost (i.e. failed to renew) my website domain, and it appears to have been taken over by some ne'er-do-well - so don't go there!
I still have a blog ( 3dcheapskate.blogspot.com/ ) although I hardly ever seem to touch it.
