Monthly Feature: Watercolors

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 11, 2013, 8:31 PM
Hey guys! So I'm bringing back my monthly features. :) I stopped doing it because so many people were requesting I feature them, and to me that kinda defeats the purpose. I feature what I like, not what I'm asked/told/coerced/paid to feature.

So with that said; here's the first monthly feature, which will be focusing on watercolors! I love watercolors. The colors, the effects, the papers... I can stare at a watercolor for hours. This feature will be split into two groups: Traditional and Digital. There aren't a lot of digital watercolors I like (that aren't Sailor Moon fanart, which is featured at my other account Kiara-Genesis), so that section won't be as large.

Inspirations Artbook - Pre-orders available!

Inspirations Artbook


The Inspirations artbook is a collaborative project between 76 deviantART members, put together by KiaraJoy. Each of the artists is allowed two entries into the book, so it will have between 76-150 pieces of artwork! The proceeds of this book will go towards purchasing and putting together packs of Crayola art supplies for children that will be signed up for it. All images in the book are made with Crayola products - crayons, markers, colored pencils, paints, oil pastels or chalk. We have some really amazing submissions in already, and I can't wait until the last one is in!

We are only taking pre-orders for the book. Once pre-order ends, your chance to buy the book is over! Inspirations would be a great Christmas or birthday gift for the kids in your life. You also get little gifts, or pledge perks, with your order. These perks range from bookmarks, to prints, posters and even original canvas paintings! Of course, the more you pledge, the more perks you get. If you'd like to preorder, you can do so here!

Here are some previews of artwork that will be in the artbook (will be updated as more previews/WIPs are submitted)!

Here is a YouTube video done by one of our Inspiration artists, Lemia, showing a preview of her artbook submission.

Disclaimer: Some people think that this is a promotional thing by Crayola. Unless they know something I don't, I am not a Crayola employee. I also do not work at deviantART. I'm a wedding planner. The only involvement deviantART has in this book is all the artists were found here; the only involvement from Crayola is that most kids are familiar with Crayola, and they are better quality then say Rose Art. Crayola and deviantART will not be donating funds -OR- supplies to this project; Crayola only works with 501(c)(3) charities in areas of Pennsylvania (I'm in Texas) and deviantART does not do any charity work (at least, according to the above company's websites). I'm just a regular person, with a group of people behind me, trying to do some good in the world.

Inspirations Artbook: Raise Money For Art Supplies

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 28, 2012, 6:30 PM


Inspirations Artbook - Call For Artists!


Last Updated: 11/28/2012
Original Post | About | FAQ | Accepted Artist List | Artist Sign Up

Hey everyone! I've had this idea floating around in my head for awhile, and have now decided to try and make it happen.

For several years now, I've wanted to come up with a way to raise money to buy art supplies for kids.  A friend suggested selling an art book, but until a few months later, I hadn't made a decision about what kind of art book I'd put together. I had already decided that the supplies I purchased would be Crayola; with that decision made, it made sense that the art book proceeds of which will go towards buying the art supplies be full of images made with Crayola products. So here's the break down:

What: Inspirations Artbook
Who: KiaraJoy, Crayon-Artists & 100-150 dART artists!
Why: To raise money for art supplies for kids
Content: Artwork created with Crayola products: markers (including Color Wonder), crayons, colored pencils (including Color Sticks), paints (including watercolors), oil pastels, chalk
Art Submission Deadline: April 30, 2013
First Edition Print Run: 200 paperbacks & 50 hardbacks (not including artist copies and prizes)
Publisher: To Be Decided (currently looking at eight; liking Gorham Printing at the moment)
Size of Books: 8.5x11 inches (A4)
Cost: TBD (will depend on how many artists participate)
Shipping: $10.00 (Flat Rate Priority Mail; US only); $25.00 (Flat Rate Priority Mail; international)
FAQ: Here
Artist Sign Up: Here
Accepted Artist List: Here

Please read all available information before asking questions! Thank you.

To help cover publishing costs of the first 250 books, we will be taking pre-orders. I will also be putting up a Kickstarter page. If we go over our goal on Kickstarter, the first edition print run will be raised from 250 to whatever we can afford. Profit from each sold book will go towards buying the art supplies! For the packs of art supplies, I hope to include the dART Pro Nomad Bag. Packs will arrive to children (there'll be sign ups available; children from low-income families will have top priority) with supplies inside of bag; hopefully this will be in time for Christmas 2013. A letter will also be included, telling the child they were picked to receive these art supplies by someone special to them who wishes for them to continue drawing, painting and coloring. Supplies will include sketchpads, oil pastels, crayons, markers, washable paint, paintbrushes, colored pencils and chalk. Other items (like construction paper, coloring books and the like) will also be included if finances allow.

Each artist will receive one full page color spread in the book. There will also be a photographic index, with thumbnails of the artwork, what page it's on, who drew it, the URL to their deviantART profile and artist commentary (five-six sentences only). Cover art will be picked by KiaraJoy and will be given a page inside the book.

This venture will only be possible with your help! Promoting this art book to friends, family and visitors to your dART page, Facebook, Tumblr and/or Twitter will help a great deal. Please use the hashtag/keyword InspirationsArtbook. The more people we can inform about this, the more copies of the book we will sell and the more art supply packs we'll be able to send out in December 2013.

Once the books are finalized (i.e. all submissions have been received and proofs of books have been checked and finalized), we will be holding giveaways and contests! Some will be on Tumblr, Twitter and Facebook. Other giveaways and contests will be on Crayon-Artists and select affiliates that wish to participate. Prizes will be shipped once the first edition print run has been received by KiaraJoy.

All artists will receive a free hardback copy of the art book! Unless enough money is raised through pre-orders and Kickstarter, artists will have to pay shipping on their books. Books won in giveaways and contests will not be charged shipping. If extra funds allow, all artists will receive copies of all the special perks available to Kickstarter/Paypal pre-orders (excluding the original drawings given away as perks).

Please remember to watch Crayon-Artists's journal for art book updates!

Suggested Ideas for the Artbook:
- Post journal in News > Culture > Projects
- Send press release to art teachers of public elementary schools in various locations
- Send press release to newspapers in various locations
- Sign on one or more famous artists
- Do you have any ideas on how to get more participants/buzz generated about the artbook? Please Note KiaraJoy!

Disclaimer: The artbook and charity event are not run, affiliated with or endorsed by deviantART or Crayola.

Updates from the land of Kiara!

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 23, 2012, 6:42 AM


New art to come, new commissions, and new tablet!

On the 16, because of the Buy One Get One Free special, my mom decided to give me a Premium Membership as an early Christmas gift! Woot. xD I also opened a group: Crayon-Artists.

A couple days ago, I finally got my new tablet in the mail! I ordered a smaller version of mine because I needed a power cord and a new pen (both had been lost in a move), and it was cheaper to buy them with a tablet off eBay (the only pen on it's own I found was $39.99 + shipping; the tablet, pen, and cords were less then $25 with shipping included). It took me two days to get my desktop fixed, though, so I could install the thing. Unfortunately, the internet connection on the desktop has been really splotchy, so I haven't even really made any art with it yet. X.x I've been coloring a Beauty and the Beast coloring page, to practice - it's been over two years since I was able to use my tablet.

Coming soon I will have new photo edit/retouches up, as well as some more photomanipulations, typography, digital coloring and traditional coloring. I might also design a new dART ID.

The Dancing Swans Artwork Contest

NEW: Help me publish The Dancing Swans! Check it out on IndieGoGo.

Hey guys! I am currently writing a novel based on the fairy tales The Twelve Dancing Princess (aka The Worn Out Dancing Shoes and The Shoes That Were Danced to Pieces) and The Six Swans (similar stories are The Twelve Wild Ducks and The Wild Swans) by the Brothers Grimm.The book will be called The Dancing Swans. I've had this idea in my head and been developing it for seven years now; originally it was a short story I wrote while pregnant with my oldest. I've got a lot of character development and world building done - like resources of the land, currency, even a map (in my gallery)! - and the next step is to flesh out an outline, then a first draft. When I get the first draft done, the first chapter will be uploaded here for people to read. I will not be uploading anything else from the book - otherwise what would be the purpose of publishing it? I'll also be starting to upload a lot of the details about the world and characters from the book in the next few days.

But before I get to the real writing part, I thought it would be fun to have a contest! My muse has deserted me lately, and having some lovely pictures to look at will help me get past my writer's block.

Each person may enter as many times as they'd like, but one person can not win multiple awards (i.e. first & runner up). I have detailed character information on each of the princesses so far (personality, face shape, etc.) and am working on the princes' backgrounds. More then likely I will be publishing as an eBook first, and then doing paperbacks/hardcovers. I'll be applying for several writing grants, if needed, so hopefully between those, what I can save, and what I can raise through IndieGoGo I'll be able to afford to publish the book.

Keep In Mind
Contest entries must be received by January 12, 2013 at 12:00 AM CST. Voting will open January 13, and will end January 18. Prizes will not be awarded until January 19, 2012. Winners will be decided based on a voting poll. If there are any ties, I will be the deciding factor.

Rules
1. Contestants may enter as many times as they want, but can only win one spot. If one person does win more then one spot, then I will chose which entry I like better.
2. Keep your entries PG.
3. Entries must be received by 12:00 AM CST on January 12, 2013.
4. Entries must be new submissions, not ones you did previous to this contest.
5. No quick/rough submissions; entries must be fully finished (colored and with a background) in order to qualify.
6. Place links & thumbnails to entries as a comment to this post; when entries start coming in, I will post a new journal entry with just the contest entries and a link to this journal.
7. You will not be allowed to sell prints of your artwork for this contest, regardless if you win or lose.
9. Digital or traditional drawings/paintings only. No photomanipulations, 3D art, etc. etc.

If you don't follow the rules I've laid out here (and yes, they are rules, even if they aren't in a numbered list with Rules written over them), your commission will not be accepted! This info is here for a reason. Read it. If you don't understand, read it again! When your name appears on this page, that means I have accepted your commission and payment needs to be made. Please send Paypal payments as Gifts; if Paypal pulls a fee from it once it hits my account, you will owe me the fee. There are 10 spots for each type of commission; if you want photo edits of, say, seven pictures that will count as one commission.

Donate Points
If you'd like, you can donate points. Every donation (except from point donation accounts/clubs/groups) will receive the following:
- 1-4 :points:: 1 fave, 1 llama
- 5-9 :points:: 2 faves, 1 comment, 1 llama
- 10-19 :points:: 4 faves, 2 comments, 1 llama
- 20-29 :points:: 8 faves, 4 comments, 1 llama
- 30-39 :points:: 12 faves, 6 comments, 1 devwatch & 1 llama
- 40-49 :points:: 16 faves, 8 comments, 1 devwatch & 1 llama
- 50-100 :points:: 20 faves, 10 comments, 1 devwatch & 1 llama
- 100-200 :points:: 30 faves, 20 comments, 1 journal feature, 1 devwatch & 1 llama

Photo Edits/Retouches
I am now offering photo edits/retouches for points + Paypal commissions! I will take 10 commissions at a time. I love editing photos, it's a lot of fun. I can blur backgrounds to put the focus on the subject in the foreground, add makeup, fix hair fly-aways, smooth skin and brighten teeth. I can also enhance colors, or turn a color picture into a black and white. I can also make them look vintage. I will edit all kinds of photos including landscape, portraits and cosplay. Each edited photo will cost $5 (Paypal only!), or 400 points. Please send me a Note before paying to make sure I will accept your commission!

Current Commissions:
1.                                                                                    6.

Hair Bow Commissions
Hair bows can be customized a number of ways: with or without a headband (most colors available; bows on headbands are detachable), the hair bow by itself (alligator, clip or barrette) or on a ponytail holder (white or black; not detachable).
I only take 10 commissions at a time, but you can put yourself on the waiting list by sending me a note.
Bows will be between $4-$20 dollars each, depending on materials used. I'll accept cash through PayPal, and points through deviantART. I may also be up for trades from time to time. Buyer must pay shipping in cash through PayPal, even if the bow is paid for in points.

dART points to cash ratio is 80 points to every $1. So if your bow costs $13 to commission, you would owe 2,400 points. Shipping will be between $5.35-$15.45, depending on how many bows you order. I ship using Priority Flat Rate boxes with delivery confirmation. If you need your bow(s) within a certain period of time, there will be an extra charge for rush orders and expedited shipping. Note me if you have any questions! :)

Bow Style Examples
You can view bow style examples here.

If you would like to commission me for a bow (or purchase a pre-existing design), please send me a note with any details, and I will let you know how much it's going to be! <3 Payment must be sent before your bow(s) will be made. Do not send points until I have accepted your commission!

Current Commissions:
1.                                                                                    6.
2.                                                                                    7.

My contest is over! You can vote here. Vote only once, please! Voting will end Friday, April 25, 2008.

If you live in Europe, I'm planning a trip there with some friends! I'd love to get some pictures to put up here and at my stock account (kiarajoy-stock).

I am going to start doing monthly features here in my journal. April's features can be seen here. From now on, I will be doing ten features for each category. If you'd like to submit your art to be featured, send me a note with the subject titled 'Feature My Art' and I'll look it over. Just keep in mind it won't be necessarily featured that month or the month after, or even if it'll be featured at all. It just depends on how much I like your submission. :) Oh, and another rule I'll be going by - each artist can only be featured once in each category every month.

About Me

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 3, 2008, 7:04 AM





News

So, a few people have been asking me to do one of those tagged surveys that are floating around dA. :) I've chosen the one I found in :devIardical:'s journal, as it has more questions then the others I've seen so far. So, this is for those who have been bugging me about doing this - you know who you are. ;) My comments are in the brackets ([]).

[x] I am shorter than 5'4. [By one inch!]
[x] I think I'm ugly sometimes. [More then sometimes, to be honest, but most people do.]
[x] I have many scars. [I have one under my nose from when I was about eight, and I have stretch marks from when I was pregnant with my daughter.]
[ ] I tan easily. [I wish!]
[x] I wish my hair was a different color. [Naturally my hair is brown with red highlights in the sun. I wish I had red hair to go with my Irish temper!]
[ ] I have friends who have never seen my natural hair color.
[ ] I have a tattoo. [Not yet, but only because I don't have the money or one drawn up for me to use. :)]
[x] I am self-conscious about my appearance. [This is only half true. It depends on who I'm with.]
[ ]I have/I've had braces.
[x] I wear glasses. [I've been thinking about getting contacts, but after thirteen or fourteen years of wearing glasses, I think I look strange without them.]
[ ] I would get plastic surgery if it were 100% safe, free of cost, and scar-free. [Me willing have any type surgery that's not absolutely necessary? I don't think so!]
[x] I've been told I'm attractive by a complete stranger. [However, given that it happened in a bar...]
[ ] I have more than 2 piercing.
[ ] I have piercing in places besides my ears.
[x] I have freckles. [And I used to hate them when I was younger.]
[x] I hate my dad. [When I was about two and living in Abilene, TX, dad was inside watching tv. I was in the backyard playing with our puppies. Mom was at work and my big brother was at school. I got out of the yard - wearing nothing but dirt and a diaper - and was found on the other side of town.]
[ ] I hate my mom.
[x] I have a brother. [Two, actually - an older one whose almost thirty and my younger brother is twenty.]
[] I have a sister.
[x] I've sworn at my parents. [Just my dad, though. Luckily my parents have been divorced for the past twelve or thirteen years.]
[ ] I've run away from home.
[x] I've been kicked out of the house. [Right after my daughter was born. Mom wouldn't let me go get a job, then she'd complain about me not having one, and then one day she kicked me out. We share a car, so me getting a job and being able to afford daycare - not an easy task.]
[] My biological parents are together. [Thank god they're not! I would've run away.]
[] I have a sibling less than one year old.
[x] I want to have kids someday. [I already have one. :) I didn't want kids when I got pregnant, and I'm not ready for another one right now.]
[x] I've had children. [I have a beautiful baby girl named Arielle, who is two and was born on Valentine's Day 2006.]
[x] I've lost a child. [I got pregnant twice by my last boyfriend. Had to have an emergency abortion the first time, and miscarried the second time.]
[] I'm in school.
[] I have a job. [I wish!!]
[x] I've fallen asleep at work/school. [I went to school for massage therapy the end of 2004 and beginning of 2005. Part of the training was getting massages - we had to practice technique, after all. I'd usually fall asleep five minutes into the massage. But I was getting up at 6:00 am five days a week, getting dropped off at my mom's, then going to school thirty-five minutes from where I'm living now, then going straight to work and usually working until one am or later, then having to drive an hour and forty-five minutes home. Yeah, I did that for five and a half months straight.]
[x] I almost always do my homework. [When I was in public school, I didn't. I'd forget, because the material usually bored me. When I started homeschooling, it got better. When I went to HTI for massage therapy, I remembered because I was interested.]
[x] I've missed a week or more of school. [I got suspended from elementary school - I think I was in fourth grade - because of something stupid, like mom thinking it wasn't time for my next round of shots or something. Turns out it was, and the school expelled me until I had them.]
[] I've been on the Honor Roll within the last 2 years.
[] I failed more than 1 class last year.
[] I've stolen something from my job.
[x] I've been fired. [When I was going to HTI, I was working at Kohl's. They changed my work schedule, wanting me to be there two hours before I got out of school. They knew this, and knew my schedule was the same five days a week, so I've always thought they did it on purpose.]
[] I've slipped out an "lol" in a spoken conversation.
[] Disney movies still make me cry. [Honestly, they don't. These days, I usually watch them with my daughter, and she thinks random parts are funny, so she'll just start laughing.]
[] I've peed from laughing.
[x] I've snorted while laughing. [It's so embarrassing!]
[] I've laughed so hard I've cried.
[] I've glued my hand to something.
[] I've had my pants rip in public.
[x] I was born with a disease/impairment. [I'm not sure, actually - is lactose intolerance something your born with? My daughter and my youngest nephew both have it, as well.]
[x] I've gotten stitches/staples. [That scar under my nose and when I gave birth.]
[] I've broken a bone.
[] I've had my tonsils removed.
[x] I've sat in a doctor’s office/emergency room with a friend. [Usually, when a friend is giving birth. I've also gone with my friend Krystin to a few of her daughter's doctor appointments.]
[] I've had my wisdom teeth removed.
[] I had a serious surgery.
[x] I've had chicken pox. [I was about five. Lucky for me, I didn't scar.]
[] I was born in a different country.
[x] I've driven over 200 miles in one day. [Yup! November 2006, I drove to New Orleans, LA in one day - 553.59 miles.]
[x] I've been on a plane. [Just one of those tiny little two-door cargo planes, though.]
[] I've been to Canada.
[] I've been to Mexico.
[] I've been to Niagara Falls.
[] I've been to Japan.
[] I've celebrated Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
[] I've been to Europe.
[] I've been to Africa.
[x] I've gotten lost in my city. [When I first started driving, yeah. I had a horrible sense of direction. I have to drive a route a few times to get it cemented in my head, but if I know the area well enough, I can build a map in my head when I get lost.]
[x] I've seen a shooting star.
[x] I've wished on a shooting star. [I haven't done that in ages.]
[x] I've seen a meteor shower. [Just one, about six years ago, I think.]
[x] I've gone out in public in my pajamas. [If all I'm doing is going down to the grocery store to get cigarettes or something for Arielle, yeah. Or if I know I'll just be hanging out at a friend's place all evening, I'll put on pajamas. So much more comfortable.]
[] I've pushed all the buttons on an elevator.
[x] I've kicked a guy where it hurts. [And I enjoyed it muchly! He deserved it, though.]
[] I've been to a casino.
[] I've been skydiving.
[x] I've gone skinny dipping. [Just once, about six months ago.]
[x] I've played spin the bottle. [Don't most preteens - hell, even teenagers - do that?]
[x] I've drank a whole gallon of milk in one day. [I'm lactose intolerant, and can't stand the taste of other milks.]
[x] I've crashed a car. [Technically, it wasn't my fault. I got run off the road into a ditch.]

My Tattoo Wishlists

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 2, 2008, 6:22 PM





News

So I'm hoping to get my first tattoo within the next year or two. I have some ideas, but I need people to draw them for me. Below are my ideas, with some examples of what I want. If you'd like to draw one for me, go right ahead! :) I can't promise that I'll use your design, though.

01. Ariel's footprints and a banner with her name (Arielle Rayne) on it, and her zodiac sign. I want it on my left shoulder blade.
- Example 1: Ariel's footprints won't look just like that; I'll scan hers in later and add the link here.
- Example 2: Banner.
- Example 3: Footprints with name.
- Example 4: Arielle's zodiac sign is Aquarius.
- Example 5: Another example of the sign for Aquarius (two wavey lines).

02. Japanese cherry blossom (sakura) tree. I want this one on my left foot.
- Example 1: This is somewhat how I'd like the base design to be.
- Example 2: Pink flowers.

03. Blue fleur de lis. I want it in the middle of the back of my neck.
- Example 1: That's the shape I'd like it to be.

04. Green & blue swallows with banner saying "Carpe Diem". I want it below my right collarbone.
- Example 1: I want the birds and the banner to be like this. Just different colors for the swallows and brighter, more vibrant colors, as well.

05. Irish saying inside of a green four-leaf clover. I want it below my left collarbone. Saying:
"May your blessings out number
The Shamrocks that grow
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go."
- Example 1: I want it in a small script like this.
- Example 2:  I like the one in middle the best, in regards to color. No banner.

06. Orange lotus, yellow rose, and red calla lily. I want this one on the back of my left calf.
- Example 1: Lotus.
- Example 2: Rose.
- Example 3: Calla lily.

Frequently Asked Questions

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 2, 2008, 1:45 PM





FAQ

I've had a lot of questions asked of me lately, and some of them have been repeats. To cut down on the time I spend on notes, I've decided to start an FAQ here. Please read this before you send a note asking me a question. If you do send me a note, and the answer is available here, I will probably ignore your note. You've been warned well in advance.

Question: Can I turn your art into layouts/avatars/icons/signatures/tubes/etc. etc.?
Answer: No. If I want to make my art available as anything other then what I've already submitted, I will do it myself. There is also the fact that most of the stock I use is allowed to be used on dA, but is not allowed to be used outside of dA. Please respect my, and the stock artists', wishes. I will report copyright violation if I see anything done with my artwork that I have not allowed.

Question: Do you have a stock account?
Answer: Yes, actually, I do. :) You can find it here.

Question: Do I have to comment if I fave one of your pieces?
Answer: No, you don't. :) I don't expect every single person who ever faves one of my artworks to make a comment. I enjoy getting comments, and I enjoy getting faves; I am not going to ask people to give me both. :P I don't always comment either - usually because other people have already said what I would've said, or because I can't come up with anything better then "good job!". I have little free time, I'm not going to spend it making inane comments.

Question: Will you do commissions? How much will you charge?
Answer: Yes, I will. Commission prices will depend on whether or not I have to buy products for your commission, and how much those products cost me. If I have to buy products that are over $10 (and I mean each, not total), you will have to give me the money for those products up front. Those products will not be added to the final total. I must receive full payment before I will submit the artwork as a print so that you can buy it. You can pay me by money order or through Paypal. What can I say? I'm a single, stay-at-home mom. :P In other words, I don't have the money to spend.

Question: What does requesting a commission mean? What will happen?
Answer: Well, for example, say you want a picture of a prince fighting a dragon while protecting a lady. If you don't tell me any other details, I will assume everything else is up to me. I will make Michael 3 a prince, but I'll have to buy him princely clothes; that'll cost you, the person requesting the commission, $___ amount of dollars upfront. You want the lady to be Victoria 4.2, but I don't have any medieval/renaissance clothes for her - that's another $___ amount of dollars upfront. Plus paying me for my time to put it all together. Before I start working on a commission, I will ask you detailed questions and come up with the price beforehand. We'll try to work it out to where it's affordable for you.

Question: What products do you have for DAZ Studio? Which ones do you want?
Answer: The current products I have and use are listed here; my wishlists for a few different websites are here. Keep in mind those wish lists are not complete - there may be things on there that I do want, but in order to keep it down to a manageable level, I won't be adding every single thing I want.

Question: If you do a commission for me, will it be made available to everyone?
Answer: That depends entirely on you. You have several options - you can allow no one else but yourself to have a print of it. You can change your mind later down the road - weeks, months, years - and have me make it available to everyone. Or you can allow it to be available for everyone right off the bat. You can not, however, sell the commission in your own store. It may be something that was made by request for you, that you paid for, but I am the one who took the time to do it and is copyrighted to me. If my artwork is sold by someone else, I will report it as a copyright violation.

Question: What programs do you use?
Answer: I use DAZ Studio for my 3D renders; I use Paint Shop Pro 7, Paint Shop Pro Photo 12, Adobe Photoshop 6 & CS, and Macromedia Fireworks for postwork and digital art.

Question: Will you become part of a promo team for DAZ Studio/Poser products?
Answer: Sure, I'd love to! I have Aiko 3, Apollo Maximus, Hiro 3, Michael 3, Victoria 3, Victoria 4 and Victoria 4.2. Just send me a note and we'll discuss it further. :)
