My Bio
I am working on adding content to my DA gallery. I have been active mainly on Renderosity as RodS since late 2009, but I am expanding my horizons, and trying to increase my presence in the online art community.

My interests range from CG and traditional art, to photography, and woodworking. I also enjoy refurbishing old lamps / lighting fixtures, and creating new ones.

For my CG (digital) artwork, I have used Photoshop, PaintShop Pro 7, and ArtRage for several years.. In 2009, I got Poser 8, and have since upgraded to Poser Pro 2012 - which absolutely ROCKS! I've recently upgraded to Poser Pro 2014 - and it ROCKS even more! The fitting room, and updated morph brush alone were worth the upgrade price! I've upgraded to the Adobe Photography Program which includes Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC for 9.95 a month. I'm not big on software subscriptions, but this one is worth every penny!

I also have Vue 10 Complete, and plan on upgrading it to the latest version soon.

So many toys, so little time....

I also enjoy photography and have for many years. I recently upgraded to a Canon EOS 6D, and have two drones for aerial photography - a DJI Phantom 2 Vision, and a DJI Inspire 1.

I am slowly working on updating my sadly neglected website. I have an on-line comic there, which I have also been posting on Renderosity (I'm RodS over at Rendo). It's called "The Girls From T.N.A." (nothing to do with wrestling, BTW). It's kind of a sci-fi / adventure spoof of the James Bond-Man From UNCLE style programs. I've had a lot of great responses, and the series has a number of fans on Rendo.

Hope to be more active here at DA, and I'll see ya around the galleries!

I Went Back...

I Went Back...

… To the old style DA page. I DID NOT like that new "Eclipse" AT ALL! So confusing to navigate through. I hope they don't make me go back to it eventually. If they do, I'm outta here. I have plenty of other on-line galleries.
Just a quick update - lots more coming soon.. I was kind of bummed that our trip was over (seems like we just left..), then I found out I'm one of the nominees for Artist Of The Month over at Renderosity!
Finally finished the redesigned website, and it is now live: I'll be adding more stuff there, as well as here, and Rendo, and my Redbubble store. I'm gonna be a busy boy!
