Hi, all.

Just thought I'd put this out there (if it's not already obvious):

I can't really take random requests. My job these days is just taking too much of my time, even spilling into weekends now, which leaves very little time for quality art or writing.

This more or less explains the serious lack of activity on my page. I'm not gone--I do try to visit DA every day. But there's just not a lot of time to work on personal art these days. I'm strongly hesitant to even take paid commissions.

Don't take it personal if I can't work on your request. Not trying to be mean. There's just not as much free time as there used to be.

I love strong, toned women. Enough muscle to show power, but not so much to lose the precious beauty of the sculpted female form. I also love capable, confident, dominant women who do not need rescuing. In fact, the women I like are apt to be doing the rescuing. And also being the ones in charge and "on top". ;)

Prince Charming? Damsels in distress? Meh. Hail to role reversals.

While I greatly admire the female body, I also have a strong bias towards the lower extremities: the legs and feet. I find them sexy. Yep. That's a foot/leg fetish. Oh noes.

I love seeing the strong women as described above kicking, fighting and breaking things with their bare feet (or hands). Specifically big game like dragons or dinosaurs. It’s fun. Hence my original character, Amber.

I also find anthropomorphic femmes to be exotic and sexy. Particularly of the wolf, jackal or vixen variety. Even better when they have nice paaaaaws :P

All that in a nutshell: most of the art you’ll see here represents the fantasist and fetishist part of me. It shouldn't come as a surprise then that I like fantasy and sci-fi games/movies/books, etc.

Besides the visual artistic side of me, I also like to write on the side. I'd be into model railroading if I had the money--damn expensive hobby. So instead I do a bit of photography as a hobby, which is just as expensive, but at least has a potential of being able to make a bit of money in return...maybe.

I'd also storm chase if I had the time. I'm that guy you see heading outside when bad weather is coming instead of seeking shelter inside.

I love luxury cars, although certainly can't afford them. You know what they say...champagne tastes, beer money.

My favorite music mostly tends to be soundtracks, both from games and movies. I'm more a fan of pure music than vocals. That doesn't stop me from headbanging to heavy metal or relaxing to soft jazz. Talk about a contrast!

I go between extreme variations of laziness and hard work. Procrastination is my worst weakness.

As for my real job. Well, don't ask. It's even more boring than this description was!

Definitely! Your new renders are really something. Are you progressing through trial and error or is there a good source for tutorials you know of? I still have issues with lighting doing unexpected things (weird shadow artifacts or not lighting areas you'd expect it to), which you'd think would happen less frequently in a PBR engine.

Yeah, trial and error. Took me a lot to achieve this level of quality, but mostly because I'm pushing every single button in DAZ, sometimes ending in a great discovery :D
Looking at your renders I see a huge potential, but I think the renders you are making aren't done in Iray.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I would say you are using the default lights that come with DAZ, right?

You're mostly correct - all the renders (except for the newest one, Dauntless) use regular or modified lights with the original render, 3delight. Dauntless is done in Iray, and the results are definitely better, but still not sure if it's really "there" yet. If I recall, it was done using a lightdome, as well as several spotlights. The one thing I hate about the trial and error method is the length of time it can take to perform tests, and that's with a relatively quick GTX 1080 card. It would be awesome if DAZ could implement something like a realtime render engine, similar to the new versions of Blender and Octane.
