Please enjoy!

Most everything I do is in 3D using Maya (but I do use 3D Max for some items and have familiarized myself with Blender).
Most common theme is Action/Adventure or Sci-Fi/Fantasy and I also enjoy making fanart.
If you have questions or comments please just let me know! I love feedback!

Fur Testing by PlasticFrogCG
Fur Testing
It's so fluffy! ...and shiny, and sticks out in all the wrong places, and takes 4 minutes to render (just the body).
Ugh, this is why I don't do fur...but I want to so bad! It would look so much better.

Tattoos! by PlasticFrogCG
Tattoos!
Hey look! I finally got around to adding those tattoos to Black Betty.
The one on her right breast reads "InJustic Swift" and the one on her left arm reads "No Abraço da Morte" (which, according to Google translate, should be Portuguese for "In Death's Embrace").

Had a terrible fright this evening when my Art Drive decided to cut out on me. Almost 250GB of characters, vehicles, gear, textures, tutorials, concept work, reference material GONE! Thank the Lord it decided to play nice latter and I was able to backup most of it to my game drive before copying it to DVD. Back up your files! Multiple copies and often!

So, despite working two jobs now (one a normal 8-5, the other weekends at Walmart) I have gotten quite a lot done! ...on paper. In text.

Yeah, the art work has slowed down, but i've made major strides in solidifying the story behind my anthro characters and the world they live in. Already I have enough content to make at least a years worth of comic pages (assuming a once or twice a week delivery and prompt turn-around). But, and you knew there was a "but", I still have very few assets to work with. There's also the matter of my dialogue being to wordy, I'm going to pass it along to some friends and see what they think. I tend to write like I'm writing a novel and I need to stop myself and ask "what can the reader see is happening/has happened?"

It's an exciting process, and I hope to use it as a major foothold in getting this project somewhere.

United States
Some guy from the east coast who thinks he knows something about making CG art (I think they call it 'delusions of grandeur'). It's a love nurtured by growing up with ReBoot on Saturday mornings and PIXAR films.

I really started with writing short stories and my art developed from a desire to take the characters from the words and give them form. I still write now and then, but not as much as I used to. I was told I was pretty good. Maybe I still am?

I have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Animation from Full Sail University and worked as a graphic designer in Virginia.

I am attempting to make a webcomic using characters I created in college. Standard action adventure fair, but I hope I can attract a few fans.

Feel free to tell me what you think about my work, DA's guidelines permitting of course. (And by that I of course mean: don't be a jerk about it if you don't like it).

Rendering, rendering, rendering. I hate rendering.
It's so time consuming. But it does make everything look pretty.
