This image is one of the most deeply emotional figure images that I have seen. In all of it's details, it is clear that a lot of though...


A timeless theme that never gets old is the female form in an open meadow. We long for the quiet freedom that the field represents, the...

Every so often I get in the mood to look back at my older Poser renders and see what files I can open and update.  Over time my knowledge of the use of lighting and coloring background objects has advanced, so I have the chance to get closer to how I want a picture to look than I did ten years ago when I first started using Poser.  Ten years of using Poser... that's a scary thought.  So... as my ability to work with Poser improves, I have the chance to revise older pictures and make them look better.  At the very least I can take a small low-resolution image originally created in Poser 5 on a computer that only half-functioned with the program, and transform it into a larger and higher-quality render.  Usually I make a few additional changes, depending on the picture and how I want it to look.

Well, over the past week I decided to go way back, and re-work some of the oldest pictures from my novel "The Wanderings of Amy" www.asstr.org/~caligula97030/a…  The 2005 pictures are no great masterpieces and will not remain for long as featured images, but I figured some of my visitors wouldn't mind seeing samples of my earliest work, created for my first novel.  Most of the images are single-figure renders of my characters Amy Debbs or Ruth Burnside, which was what my computer at the time was capable of rendering without freezing up.

I also have come across some additional early files I created in 2010 for my novel "The Outsider" www.asstr.org/~caligula97030/o… and have either re-worked them, or used the backgrounds for new pictures.

As I look about DA, I am aware that the Poser community has moved far beyond what I am doing.  I am still using Poser 7 and Generation 3 DAZ models, while others have moved on to Poser 10 and Vicky...(whatever the version number happens to be now).  I have no formal graphics training and don't pretend to be a professional artist, nor am I about to dump a bunch of money every six months to buy the latest version of Vicky and all the supporting files, only to have them become obsolete with the release of a newer generation of models.  I prefer to work with what I have and improve my renders at my own pace.  My art is nothing more than a hobby for me - it is not the focus of my life.  Sometimes I feel like rendering, sometimes I don't.  Sometimes I like to create new images, sometimes I like to upgrade the older ones.

My main hope is that I can create images that my visitors enjoy looking at, regardless of my lack of "professionalism", and almost as important is the hope that I can encourage people, through my art, to take a look at the novels I have posted in ASSTR.
