Super Llama: Llamas are awesome! (39)
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!

🤔 This has got to be some kind of April 1 gag..... 
Indeed well chosen - it 'eclipses' all the sunlight.. I hope they don't try to force their updated garbage down my throat.. DA and I will part ways if they do.. I think Rendo learned their lesson with that "revolution" a few years ago. They haven't done anything stupid like that since. Take a lesson, DA..
Sprout just won "Treasure Of The Week" over at Fantasy Attic! 😁👍 Woohoo!
