Flesh by Princess-Anakin

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;

Allegorithmic target gamedev market...

...but I'd say all sorts of 3D artists could benefit from their software. Most people these days would only be familiar with the current flagship of theirs, the Substance line, but since I am a dinosaur, I'm still using MapZone:
www.mapzoneeditor.com/
It's free, mindblowing, and the license includes commercial use, just in case. If you want to be completely clear, simply don't use their pre-built texture networks.
But as it's customary with many programs that I like, the documentation is next to non-existent.

What I'm looking at right now is their upcoming 3D painting solution - with, like, groundbreaking promises that may well be true:
www.allegorithmic.com/products…

The indie license looks adequate, but I will still have to try it out before shelling out. Though as you know, I am slow; so if anyone does try it, could you please share your experience?

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...)
