|For the past 15 plus years
I have been doing a variety of freelance work. A wide range of projects
including drawings, sign painting and websites.
For the past 7 years, I have been playing around with computers
and learning as many of the graphic software packages as possible.
In 1999, I decided to go to college to learn more about computer
graphics and the graphic design industry. Having graduated, I found
the whole world was wide open for me to move in whatever direction
I wish. The problem is that I enjoy several areas in the graphic
field. I have yet to find that one area for which I can focus my
skills and talents on. For now, I will continue to freelance and
learn as much as possible in all areas of Graphic Design.
Although I enjoy working on any type of graphic project, I have
a high interest in 3D graphics and animation. For the past few years,
I've been playing around with a program called Bryce (formerly
a Metacreation program - now owned by Corel). After seeing the
layout of 3D Studio Max on a friends monitor, I figured Bryce
would be a good starting block for learning 3D graphics and animation.
*See Grafx section for samples.
Recently, I came across a program that really caught my eye. GMAX
by Discreet. This program has the layout look of 3D Studio
Max, but is much more user friendly. I am going through the
tutorials and am having no problems doing the projects.
What makes GMAX so special is that it can also be used as
a game and level designer. Having been playing video games since
the release of Pong, (yes, I said Pong), I figured this would
be a great program to learn. I have always followed the gaming industry
and have noticed that the big future in video games is with the
PC. At least as far as the adult market goes. These are the biggest
consumers when it comes to PC games.
Although I may be getting involved in the 3D world, I am always
found playing with the most common pieces of software. (Photoshop,
Illustrator, Quark Xpress)
