Russia
WARNING: Gnostic Christian / existentialist / Otherkin / genderfree / anarchist / feminist / asexual panromantic / and very serious about it all, thank you
If you find a "pinup" image in my gallery, check again. Your brain is fooling you.

In 2015, I will be thirty (30) years old. I do not have any education in anything related to arts, apart from the basics everyone is taught at secondary school here in Russia. Whatever I managed to learn comes from books, online tutorials and experimenting.
This is but a hobby for me, so unfortunately it means I will never be good enough so as not to be ashamed of the faults abundant in my traditional "artwork", neither will I ever have enough time to justify forgoing the use of premade 3D content completely.
And yet, I just cannot quit for good. I tried.
I am very sorry.

What I do
:

-- traditional artwork:

----- graphite pencil;
----- watercolours.

-- digital artwork:

----- 3D:
------- biggest passion: lighting and materials; lately started writing shaders in RSL;
----------- favourite scene setup software: DAZ Studio; render engine of choice: 3Delight; contender: Carrara 6 and its engine;
------- hard surface modeling and organic sculpting (including custom morphs for premade figures);
----------- favourite tools: Silo, Hexagon, Carrara (particularly spline modeling), Sculptris;

----- image editing:
----------- postwork for 3D renders and photos (integral part of my artwork);
----------- favourite tools: Paint.NET with its awesome plugins, Twisted Brush Pro, a few free Photoshop filters;

----- general design:
----------- HTML, CSS, page layout;
----------- favourite tools: Xara Designer, Inkscape;

Be prepared for a long read! I suggest even taking notes =)

It also has a companion preset for one of the examples now to help you master the technique:

Crap... lost track of where the conversation was... But to answer your question, thanks loads for pointing me towards Demon & Wizards! Very much enjoying the sound, and they seem to be kicking my muse right in the writing muscles, which is a very good thing right about now. (Overdue on way too many projects now...)
