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. Just to let you know, this is where I will post my more risque' and explicit pinups, so if this kind of subject matter upsets or offends you, you might want to check out my gallery at Renderosity. You've been informed.

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, then PP 2014. I have since upgraded to PoserPro 11.3, and recently won PoserPro 12 in a contest at another site. I'll be installing it soon. I also use Photoshop and have a CC subscription with Adobe.

I have used DAZ Studio as well. Currently my DAZ machine is down, but I hope to get it back on line soon.

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 Mavic, and a DJI Inspire 1.

I also have a 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." and has been running for a bit over 10 years. 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, and is gaining new fans in several other places.

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

Well, this is the SECOND time I'm typing this. With all the other art sites I'm on, I NEVER have as much trouble figuring out how things work as I do here. It's nuts! Anyway... I've once again done some re-arranging of galleries. It took a couple hours to fight my way through DA's complex and confusing system, but I managed. I've moved all my "spicer" work to the NSFW gallery. I don't want innocent eyes falling on something they shouldn't. I still have the "Pinup" gallery with the more moderate (non-nude) images. I've placed the "Photography' gallery at the top, the TNA Gallery next, the "Pinup" gallery next, and the NSFW Gallery at the bottom. I will be adding more photography soon, along with the other stuff. Stay safe out there and have a good summer!

A Few Changes..

2 min read
I've done a bit of re-arranging here, and as I continue to figure out how things are laid out here, there will be more changes, I'm sure. I am currently uploading a "Re-run" of the entire "Girls From T.N.A." story (which is now in Chapter 7 on both my website, and at Renderosity.). I have arranged the main page here so the current chapter is the "Featured" gallery at the top of the page. The earlier chapters (as galleries of their own) are below, in descending order (i.e. Chapter 1 will be at the bottom). The newest pages will always be on the LEFT in the galleries. I wish I could arrange them left-to-right (which is the NORMAL way to read things), but unfortunately, I can't seem to do that here. It is what it is. I hope to be releasing PDF versions of each chapter soon, which will be available at my Pateron and Ko-Fi sites. Any support is deeply appreciated, and will help get the PDFs created, and also keep the story going. I do have several other galleries as well, so feel free
