I'm not especially artistic, but I appreciate the art of others in a kind of "I wish that I could do that" kind of way. I dabble in sketching using plain old pencil on paper, but my main these days Digital. A little photo editing, and a little Photoshop.
I work extensively in Daz Studio\Poser. You can see a couple of the renders that I have done on this page, but most of what I do goes elsewhere. This page is mostly here for my web comic. It's cheap and cheerful, and not my best work by any stretch of the imagination, but I guess that's what happens when you need 6 or 7 renders per page. It's a little bit about Alien Abduction, and a lot about how much high school and small towns can suck if you aren't one of the pod people.
More to the point. I'm a committed non conformist. I don't do "peer pressure", and I hate being told what to do or what to think, and I have a personal beef with anything that calls itself "mainstream". Be it art, culture or science. Particularly when said "Mainstream" spends more time putting down people who disagree with it through cheap shots and ridicule, than it does defending its perspective through evidence and or reasoned argument.
Although I resemble it sometimes, I'd hesitate to call myself a Goth. The Goth scene has become somewhat commercialized over the last 10 years, to the point that stores like Hot Topic are ripping off the Goth look and are selling it as a novelty lifestyle choice called "Emo". Which is what you might get if Goth were brought out by a greeting card company. Emo is just another way of conforming while pretending that you aren't.
Yes, I am thin and pale, yes I do dress in flowing black clothes with a semi-occult on theme (Not that being a Goth has anything to do with the occult, I hasten to add), and no I don't have anything pieced. Not not a nipple, not an eyebrow, not even an ear. That would be too much like conforming for me.
