I fell in love with Daz3D a couple of years ago. It enabled me to bring to life the various characters that I wrote about in my books. It enabled me to get a look at how I envisioned them to actually look like. I didn't have to describe them so heavily any more, I could print of portraits to show people who read my books what the characters looked like.
Since then I have been commissioned by several friends to do the same for them. I have enjoyed the challenge and now offer my skills to the wider community out there. I use Daz3D, Rendorosity and RuntimeDNA as my resources for skins, hair, clothing, poses etc. Ask me if you want to see other examples of my work.
