NICELabs's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Known as Niceman in certain circles. That reminds me... if you do a search for my art search under Niceman too as I'm so used to putting that in my tagline that I did it here on many pics in my gallery even though I'm going by NICELabs here.

Anyway, in the Real World I'm a farmboy nerd who enjoys CGI art (mainly work in Poser) when I'm not tending the baby calves on the farm or the classic 80s video game arcade I co-own with friends. My art is eclectic in genres ...pretty much whatever strikes my fancy. I'll do sci-fi, fantasy, modern, horror, just whatever idea pops into my head at the time. Usually though it involves nudity/adult themes. What can I say. I'm a lifelong fan of women and the female form :) If you know what Shokushu is, I'm THAT Niceman, though the Real World and other interests have kept me from being there for years.

Current Residence: the N.I.C.E. Labs facility just off shore of Shokushu Isle
Favourite genre of music: 80s but appreciate all kinds
Favourite style of art: appreciate many styles. Genres lean to Sci-fi and erotic
Operating System: Mac OSX
MP3 player of choice: iPad
Wallpaper of choice: of my own creation
Favourite cartoon character: Jonny Quest circa 1960
Personal Quote: "Integrity is doing the right thing, even if no one's looking"
It's tax time again, so I'm not only opening up for more commissions, but they're on sale :) Scenes with multiple characters or complex scenes are the same price as my basic single character rate... $30 for everything!  If the scene is extraordinarily busy or more than two or three characters then we'll treat it as two pics (so $60) but generally it'll fit into the basic sale price per pic.  Feel free to send me a note and we'll discuss what you need.  Happy to do multiple pics in series.  Looking forward to working with you :)

Traveller RPG: Elegant Engineer
In the last session of Traveller game I ran, the players made a lucrative cargo sale and wished to celebrate.  They were on Regina, the subsector capital and a major hub for just about anything.  They set down in an island resort city in the souther hemisphere and treated themselves.  With their shares they went their separate ways for a day or so, enjoying spas and attractions and luxury hotels.   Luxley, the crew's engineer, spent money on personal upgrades... got some cyberpunk style subdermal luminous tattoos.  A grid kind of like making parts of her skin like an LED screen, so her tattoos would shift and change and move about her.  The crew was going to meet for a final gourmet meal before leaving so she also bought the first dress the scruffy scout/engineer had ever owned.
Traveller RPG: Hull Hit!

Session 6 of my new campaign. In the last session they were on deceleration approach to the Gas Giant at Tureded (Lanth C565540–9) When they were ambushed by a 200ton Far Trader. Though they assumed it was a pirate, the ship issued no surrender orders and was jamming the player's comm systems. A running battle ensued as Luxley dove their scout into the upper atmosphere of the gas giant, hoping to elude their attackers. Dax was in the turret, but the Marine turned spacer had little experience with such heavy weapons. Still, his return fire and deployment of sand made it possible for them to get into the giant's atmosphere. Meanwhile Miguel was trying to do damage control, trying to patch their existing hull breach. No sooner had he done so than the Far Trader's beam laser sliced deep into their ship's hull, not meters from where Miguel was working.

Luxley dodged and jinked their ship, aided by their defensive programs, but the enemy ship was not giving up. It seemed it's sole purpose was to destroy the players and their scout ship. Laser fire ignited the hydrogen atmosphere with each shots, sending ribbons of flame and great arcing sheets of fire all about them. Suddenly ahead of them were massive columns of fire erupting radomnly across the sky. A massive storm was ahead and bolts of lightning several meters across were hellishly lighting up the sky. Luxley made a gamble and dove at full burn into the storm. A bolt of lightning hit the pursuing freighter, destroying it's laser turret. Thrown off balance it made an easier target and Dax hit solidly with their pulse laser, punching through their hull and into their computer bay. Flaming atmosphere followed doing further damage. The freighter was barely in control when a massive bolt struck both ships. The player's scout suffered further hull damage, but nothing more critical. The attacking freighter, however went dark as it's power plant overloaded and it spun out of control down into the depths of the Gas Giant's atmosphere to meet it's doom.

Miguel took over piloting and let Luxley reprise her role as engineer and made sure their systems where in order as they left the atmosphere and attained orbit once more. There they did damage control on the hull ruptures well enough to complete their refueling and Jump to Quopist (Lanth B551679-A). There they released the first of the spy satellites they were tasked to deploy and made landfall to effect proper repairs on their ship. Once done they made their way to their next stop of Rhise (Lanth C100576-A) There they deployed the next satellite at the deep space coordinates required and made their way to refuel. There they found a 2000ton tanker in orbit taking advantage of the Amber Zone and civil unrest planet side. They had both refined and unrefined fuel, but at double the rate. For those not wanting to take the risk of getting mixed up in a civil war, it was worth the price. The players went this route and got refined fuel. Their next satellite location is Ruie (Regina C776977-7) which is six jumps away. The satellite as before is counting down and it seems they have about two weeks buffer to get there. In the meantime their next destination is Vreibefger (Lanth E581542-3), home of the mysterious Research Station Epsilon....

Traveller RPG: Perks of the Job
A scene from a recent session of the classic Traveller game I'm running.  One quirk about the small 100ton Scout Ships is their air system.  After a few weeks it begins to smell, and after about a month it makes the ship nearly unbearable.  It requires constant replacements of filters or to replace the unit completely.  Their ship's engineer, Luxley, spent two days removing the infamous air filtration system on their scout and replaced it with a new model that wouldn't reek to high heaven. In profound appreciation, ship captain Miguel arranged for some surprise pampering for their hard working engineer.

Commission Info

My rates are $30 for a basic portrait or simple action scene with limited background. Scenes involving complex settings and/or multiple characters generally go at a $30/hour rate where most pics fall in the 2 to 3 hour range, with the average maximum has been about 5 hours. I of course do not charge for rendering time. You shouldn't pay for the speed of my computer (or lack thereof)... only the time I'm physically working on the artwork. Transactions via Paypal.

I like to explore genres. I'm open to erotic, even hardcore themes (outside the realm of DA's TOS), though of course I won't be doing any illegal type of artwork (beastiality, underage, etc.) , but I will do my best to capture your idea within reason. I do refrain from doing any male gay or transsexual pics. I have absolutely nothing against the lifestyle, but as it's not my thing I've found that my lack of inspiration in such areas makes the pics suffer and for a commission that would mean not getting what you want.

I have an extensive 3D library so odds are I can get close as possible to clothing, props and settings you have in mind, but if latitude is allowed I'm sure I can make up for any discrepancies by my attention to the spirit of your request.
