To come home from work and be able to open Daz Studio or Photoshop and just play around with images and ideas as they come to me, and transmute any worries or anxieties of work and life into something that is creative and artistic. Then post it here, where it'll get added to people's favourites and collections. I get a kick out of seeing the familiar names that favourite my art and the unfamiliar names, people who see something in my gallery that they like or connect with. I love reading comments and going back and forth with everyone, usually about some nerdy Star Trek thing or the other.
Without having Deviant Art over these past six years. I would probably not be the lovable, 'mad as a box of crazy' me that we know, and more on the darker side of crazy that no one would want to be on.So, here's a big thank you to all my watchers and friends that I've met through both Deviant Art and 3D digital art in general and here's to the next thousand images.
If you've got this far it's no surprise that I'm a Trekkie. I saw Star Wars when I was around four and that was it, anything with space ships, laser guns and swords and sorcery that came my way I devoured. Of course, Star Trek, wasn't far behind and it was my Mum who got me to watch Star Trek saying I'd like Mr. Spock.
So Star Trek was present in my childhood, but it wasn't until I was about 12 that I really got into Trek in a big way. I burned myself in an accident a few days into what was an extended two week holiday from school. So it was a trip down to the hospital, and after that I got spoiled for the two week holiday and part of that was renting Star Trek: The Next Generation (Season 1), and that was it. After that everything I had to have was Star Trek, and it didn't matter which generation it was.
At the moment I am in very much a Star Trek phase, although I do other artwork which I may post here at a later date when I've organised it. The Star Trek phase I'm in at the moment I think is due to a number of things, my obsession with creating characters with Daz's Victoria & Michael 4, the increasing amount of stuff available for Star Trek art, sets, props, uniforms etc., and my writing of my own fan fiction Star Trek Caliburn.
Writing is something I want to get back into, so hopefully my blog here will start filling up with some articles and essays, in a effort to kick-start my story writing again.
