My Bio
I'm currently most interested in how to have 3D software produce non-photoreal renders (NPR). Renders that are 'believable' as 2D hand-made art, even to experienced comics-readers and fellow digital artists. Made using user-friendly and affordable software such as Poser - which gives an artist easy access to the vast amounts of low-cost royalty-free Poser/DAZ 3D content.

I also edit Digital Art Live magazine each month, among my other activities. Please see my Patreon page for more details about my interests (link below).

Over the years I haven't treated DeviantArt as any kind of comprehensive repository of my work, and nor have I regularly 'worked DA' (expect for my Favourites). Thus you don't see all my visual work here at DeviantArt, just the sort of thing that may interest the regular type of DA member.

Favourite Visual Artist
Moebius, among others.
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
Chill synthwave, British electropop (PSB, early Numan), Mirror System.
Favourite Books
The Lord of the Rings.
Favourite Writers
In genre: Lovecraft, Tolkien, Simak, Robert E. Howard.
Favourite Games
Morrowind, Unreal Tournament 3, TheHunter.
Favourite Gaming Platform
Windows 8.1.1
Tools of the Trade
Photoshop + plugins, Poser 11, DAZ Studio 4, Vue 2016 and others.
Other Interests
Research on the life of H.P. Lovecraft, running a search-engine for finding open access content, running a local 'news you can use' Facebook Group for creatives.

DeviantArt Filter changes the permablock method

DeviantArt Filter changes the permablock method

The vital DeviantArt Filter Web browser addon has a wholly new way to filter a user, in version 6.1 (the current version). You now right-click on a search result, "Create Filters..."  The little 'X' in the corner of the result, that used the way to permablock, is now gone.  Adding permablock is now now slower and clunkier than before, but more granular.

I absolutely loathe the new DeviantArt interface.

I absolutely loathe the new DeviantArt interface.

The more I try to use it, the more vile it becomes. There are just so many stupid things wrong with it, and god... the fucking scrolling!!! Constant bloody scrolling up and down, and side to side. Then, when you want it to zip back up to the top of a page - it doesn't obey the 'scroll up' command. What a total utter mess.
This new Eclipse update gets more and more vile, the more I try to use it. Horrible. Please, someone - make a working UserScript for Web browsers, that turns it back to old version as much as possible!
