My name is János Miklós, a 45 years old Hungarian with a passion for Science Fiction and Fantasy. I started drawing since childhood. In fact, I studied technical drawing at school for two years and this time I learned many things about it. I have a background in IT, creating software’s for some PHARE projects. I learned to create software's using programming languages like: Quick Basic, Microsoft FoxPro, Turbo Pascal and Microsoft Access. I have also worked with Corel Draw, creating leaflets and brochures. After the projects were closed I tried to find myself something to fill my spare time, so I started to draw on paper and later build 3D models. This way I had the chance to work with some computer programs like Truespace, Rhinoceros, Corel Bryce, Pandromeda, Wings 3D and Milkshape 3D. I learned how to use Adobe Photoshop and some of my sci-fi artworks was made with this software. Now I'm working with Milkshape 3D. With Milkshape, I also started modding my favorite space strategy game, Star Trek Armada 2 and Fleet Operations.
