New Posts on Patreon

Here are a few images I've recently posted on Patreon. The ones on Patreon are much, much larger than these, are 300 DPI, and do not have the large watermarks on them. I've also blocked out the "vital  parts" of the nude pinups as I'll link this post to Facebook and Twitter, and don't want to violate their Terms of Service.

So, what is Patreon? Basically, it is a site where you can become a Patron for your favorite creators. Through the ages, artists and creators have had Patrons who have supported them and their artwork, enabling them to grow as artists. This benefits not only the Artist, but society as well. Art adds enjoyment, and enriches our lives. Be it pinup art, beautiful landscapes, portraits, or even abstract, it  adds enjoyment to our daily routines. Imagine life without art.... Not a pretty picture.

For as little as $1.00 a month you can become a Patron, and enable (and encourage) me to create more art - and other content as well. I have two Patron Tiers at the moment: $1.00 and $5.00 per month. As a way to thank you for your patronage, there are large, high-resolution versions of the images you see here available for you to download. The $5.00 Tier will have access to the nude figure studies and pinups as well as the images in the $1.00 Tier. And there will be much, much more in the coming months.

I will have stories and comics exclusively for my Patrons, and tutorials as well. There will also be plenty of full-resolution photos which you can use for backgrounds, computer wallpapers, or prints for your own personal use (i.e. decor for your home). They may not be used for commercial purposes. You will need to contact me regarding commercial use, or visit my Adobe Stock or Shutterstock  galleries.

There will be much more content coming in the months and years ahead. I hope you will join me on this adventure!

Update: 02-26-18

Just a quick update tonight…

My ailing Titan computer should be home Thursday! They ran it through some extra tests, and even did some rendering tests with it. From what the person that emailed me said, everything worked really well on it. I'm anxious for it to get home, so I can start working on the next page in the TNA story.

I do have Poser on the PowerSpec laptop that I got from Micro Center, and also on my big Velocity machine. But the Titan is my main poser machine – I'll use it for renders, and while it's rendering I can work on Photoshop on the Velocity, or another scene on the PowerSpec.

I'm also working on a little side story, which delves into G4's background, and tells the story of how she came to be part of TNA. I'll also be doing stories on Arawen, Melanie, and some of the other Girls.

I'm also working on some new renders to put up on Patreon and Pixels, and some of my other online stores. I'm trying to get my name out there in as many places as possible, so maybe I can make a buck or two with this art thing.

That's pretty much it for tonight. See you later!

Wanna Play? Print at Pixels

Also on my Patreon Page

Trying hard to get my name out there... Hey, if Y'all make me rich, maybe I'll build a big rocket and launch a car into space...

Or not...

Update: 02/23/18

Okay, folks… Just a quick update today.

I just did little bit of updating on the website – I made the splash graphic a little bit smaller. That's the framed image that changes each time you come to the website. I made it 800x600, so it's just a little bit smaller and doesn't take up quite as much real estate.

I've also added banners for Patreon and Pixels. I am trying to expand, and get my work in front of as many people as possible. I would dearly love to have some of my artwork and photography start making a little bit of money for me.

Anyway, I'm going to be posting more to Facebook, Twitter, and of course all the art sites like Renderosity, Deviant Art, Fantasy Attic, and more.

I have just launched a Patreon page. For those of you that don't know about Patreon, it is a website that allows you to help support artists and other creators. For a small monthly amount – less than you'd spend on a soda or cup of coffee per day – you can become a patron. More details are available about it on my Patreon page, which you can see by following the link below

In other news, I haven't heard anything since Monday regarding my computer that I sent for service. Last I heard they were going to pack it up and ship it, and send me a tracking number once it shipped. If I don't hear anything by this afternoon I'll send them an email and try to find out what's going on.

For now, I'm going to sign off and relax with a little artwork, and a nice hot cup of coffee. Have a great weekend everybody!

Update: 02-20-2018

Well hello… to the one or two people that actually read this thing once in a while. It's been a little while since I've done an update, but really not a whole lot has happened.

Probably the biggest thing is my Titan computer – which is my main Poser computer – was having some problems a couple weeks ago. It started running real slow, and for a while it took it around 20 minutes to boot into Windows. I sent an email to Titan, and they sent me a shipping label to ship it back to their facility so they can look at it. I just got an email today from them, and apparently FedEx damaged the case during shipping. They don't usually cover damage to the case but they went ahead and put the components into a new case for me. They checked everything else out and updated some drivers and the BIOS. They were not able to replicate the USB problem I've been having… Trying to install Windows every time I booted up with the USB drives attached, so there may be a boot image on one of the USB drives. Anyway, that's not that big of a problem. I can simply plug in the drives after the machine is booted up and everything's fine.

Anyway I'm looking forward to getting it back soon.

Today is kind of an ugly cold, rainy, sleet-y, icy day – just perfect for staying inside, drinking coffee, listening to music, and doing some artwork. So that's what I'm gonna do!

Thanks for stopping by, and again I'm trying to update this more often. See you soon!

New Month, New Entry...

 Just a quick entry tonight… I know once again it's been a while since I put anything on this blog, the truth is I've been pretty busy cramming my head full of new ideas and new knowledge. It seems like every time I open up Poser or Photoshop or DAZ Studio, I learn something new, or find new ways to use the features all these amazing applications have.

With some of the new features that they've added to Photoshop CC, I'm hoping to get started doing a little bit of 2-D work in addition to the 3-D stuff that I'm continuing to improve my abilities with.

If the link above worked, I have just uploaded a new image to Pixels for sale as a poster or numerous other products. I also have galleries at Adobe Stock, and it Shutter Stock. I am hoping that I can start making a little bit of money with my artwork and photography. What a concept… Getting paid to do something you love! Hopefully, one of these days I'll actually sell something. If and when it happens I'll probably fall out of my chair and break my neck!

I'm gonna keep it short tonight, as I want to put together the next page in my TNA story, and get that posted to Renderosity and my website.

I've also invested in the newest version of Dragon NaturallySpeaking, and am attempting to get it trained to understand the words that I use commonly. So for now I'll sign out, and I'll promise to be back soon.
