My Bio
Well, what's to say. I have a passion for art, in all of it's forms but my skills draw me more towards the technical side of it all. My interests from a creative standpoint are derived from my geeky Star Trek days and with the advent of technology, it has made it even easier for me to express my passions in a more creative way. Aside from creating drawings, I love flying. Although I am not a certified pilot (not yet, at least), I fly occasionally through flight sim and with that I can take the occasional snap and clean it up nicely for display in my portfolio. One day I'll get into the pilot's seat, but I'm in no hurry. :)

So after posting a revised and colored version of the Ambassador Refit plan, I am left standing at a fork in the road and I would love to get some opinions from the masses.  I have taken up the duty of finishing what I intended to do months ago with regard to the Ambassador, but after colorizing the dorsal plan, I relaized just how much work is involved.  Since I work in CADD all the time to produce plans, the methods for output is a bit of trickery, meaning that I render the views in a way that they come out smooth and clearer at high resolution, instead of the normal output to printers, so in essence, there aren't any "jaggies".  Anywho, af

Miss me? Haha, thought so.  After a long reprieve from design, I was struck with some inspiration from the least likely of things, but that doesn't matter now.  I am continuing the adventure, although it will take some time after making the decision to revise the design and redesign the format.  The new coloring scheme of the plans is taking longer than I expected, but overall, I think it's worth the weight.  With the way I have arranged the labeling, it looks less cluttered and should be easier to follow.  I guess there is no right way of assembling plans for a ship and with the odd design of the ship, placing callouts and leaders can be te

I had decided a little while ago to put all Trek related work on the back burner, mainly because I needed a break.  I started to get back into FSX and I also recently figured out how to do repaints, which was cool...then my birthday came and all hell broke loose.  Birthdays are supposed to be happy times...typically for people other than me. Sunday morning, my computer wouldn't boot.  Long story short, Dell put in a service request to replace my laptop's mobo and HDD.  After repeated troubleshooting attempts, I ultimately overwrote my backup HDD...all data gone.  After that happy BS, I found out on my own what was really wrong  My SSD (solid

In a few days, it is going to be a relatively normal day...for most.  But not for you.  For on that will be a good day to revel in the moment that you were cast down upon this Earth, summoned and placed here by the mighty Odin to share your talents and your creativity with all.  Let thee rejoice and enjoy this time, and know you are wished a Happy Birthday!  May many more follow!

Also, Odin sends cake, blessed by King Kong and delivered by Godzilla! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too
A few days from today, the history books show an entry.  An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon.  That boon was you.  And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too
History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
