My Bio
I have been doing Digital art for years, and you can see from my gallery i still do that quite extensively, however recently i have taken up photography as well. I have created a folder in my gallery labeled "Potato Photo" where i will put some of what i think are my best pictures so far which is not to say i know what a "Good" photo is but that it closely resembles what i was going for in the shot. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!

Comments are always welcome and appreciated as well as faves as these days i find it hard to keep up with individual thank yous. Just enjoy and be excellent to each other while you are here. God bless you.

New Neural Filters in Photoshop

0 min read
In my lastest render here I used the new Neural filter feature in Photoshop to add the focal area. This is kinda a game changer for us Iray users when using an HDR for lighting as it allows us to add depth blur in a more realistic manner. Still need to really play around with it to see how it works. I added a depth blur as mentioned but also added a slight haze to the background to make the model pop out a little more. So using the new Presets in Light room as well as using this in Photoshop is now going to be be better for my work flow.

First Real Projects

0 min read
To my followers that might care what i do outside of DA i have completed my first video project ever. I did all the filming, color grading and editing. I also wrote, performed and recorded the music, i also did all the foley work in the vid as well. This was also my first time using Davinci Resolve so i am a completely beginner in that regard. Here is the link for the vid if you want to take a peak and or comment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OhmgKiyBXc It will not win me any indie can awards or huge accolades but for a first real attempt i must say i am proud of it. And yes thats me in the video if your wondering, now you seen the old geezer :) Danny

Well Apparently

Cover images can not contain anything that would require a mature tag ie no nudity. This is the fault of DA specifically, since when setting up and posting them it says nothing regarding this. And i guess its not something they police a lot since the damn picture has been my cover art since Eclipse started.....talk about dumb.
