My Bio
I don't like talking about myself. I'd rather talk about what I do, make, or am interested in, so that's what I'll do here. I've been a professional artist since graduating high school, providing paintings and illustrations for more books, magazines, comics and private clients than I can honestly remember at this point. I'm an obsessive workaholic, which is both a strength and a weakness in that it can definitely lead to other parts of my life suffering somewhat, but I'm pretty much ok with it. 3D art became a kind of obsession for me starting in the early-mid 90's when, while working as a production artist for a large sports memorabilia, I had my first encounter with Ray Dream, Infini-D and the first version of Poser, then from Metacreations. It may be dating myself here, but I think I've had a very fortunate vantage point on the explosion of art, technology and communication because of being just old enough to have had to begun my career without the internet, but also just young enough to have evolved right alongside it. Back in the day, I produced my first personal 3d art pieces using a home-built PC with a 90mhz Pentium and a whopping 96 megs of ram, running 3D Studio DOS and eventually, Max... blazing
for it's day. Over the years, my tools changed as they did for most, evolving with the times. Max gave way to Maya for me, and Zbrush became a primary tool. I've had the good fortune to have gone on from my roots in comic book illustration, something I still love dearly, to have a wide variety of experiences in gaming, broadcast and film animation.

Thanks for checking out my work. Hopefully there's something in my visual ramblings that might appeal to you. And if not, well... thanks anyway. :) -Les

Happy Birthday!
Wow. It's been a while since I checked in here. Sorry to everyone who posts here occasionally for being MIA. Too many sites for one guy to keep up with while carrying the kind of work load I normally do. I've said it before and floundered on it, but I hope to start checking back in here a lot more often.
I'm pretty sure I remember visiting your store at sixus1.com not too long ago  but now it is gone.
Are you going to be exclusively on CGBytes.com from now on?
So I came across something of yours over at Renderotica, a new monster figure called Dark Void Amalgamate. Question is, are you going to make more monsters like this? Please say yes! I've been keeping my eyes on your monsters for a long long time, been saving up so I can get em. They will definitely play a vast role in my scifi thriller for damn sure. Genesis has been getting all the cool shit lately, I'm glad you did a version of this creature for poser, it's rare to find massive monster types that are stand alone, and I need more beast like this that will pose greater threats. Can't wait to see what else you have. I think Eurogenesis and someone named CGbytes had a hand in this one too. Either way, find it very appealing. I cannot wait fight this thing in my story. 
thanks for the watch :) cool stuff you got going here ;)
Its Kylie, found you :D
I love the Gigli line. If you're thinking of expanding it in the future, how about a frog, gargoyle, and owl in the same style?
