Gunning Rider by Dualmask

OK. I'm going to go with the bike portion, since I'm kinda ... into... bikes (I am what's known as a sport-tourer, which is someone who...

Mako vs Statesman by Juggertha

Wow! OK, this is really well executed. The focal 'foreshortening' is an interesting technique, thinking it might be a little overdone, ...

:bulletblue: ABOUT MY OC'S :bulletblue:

I come up with characters all the time, usually whilst playing my favorite MMO game(s). Granted, I TRY to stay away from trademarks and such, but, in the case of my main, well... she's a Don Cornelius fan.

That said... Soul Train the character is in no way affiliated with, endorsed by, or derivative of the TV musical review show of the same name.

:bulletblue: ABOUT THIS GALLERY :bulletblue:

This is a compilation of my feeble attempts at 3D artwork, perhaps with some inking or coloring that turns out half-decent, my written stories, and my purchased commissions and gift art of my City of Heroes / Villains characters, all done by other artists.

For more information on City of Heroes, go to the COH Official Website:

The CSS template is courtesy -
Background image is "Soul Train" by Ebony-Chan, superimposed on the American Flag.

Wow, it's been a long time, hasn't it?

I'm still around, occasionally 'rendering' costumes and such in Second Life - I've found it's actually easier than using poser for a lot of things.

CoH is long gone, tried Champions Online, didn't like the progression or the gameplay.  Tried DCUO, found the game controls annoying.

So it's back to SWTOR.

In other news, I now have a HOUSE (not an apartment) and a second car.  Commuting to work 5 days a week sucks. 

"Five more years of this and you get a lousy pension and a cheap gold watch."  "Cool."


I've uploaded a few character references and linked them to the journal above. Please, if you use my characters in your artwork, I'd appreciate a link to it. Thanks.


Complete Commissions:

Paid and Waiting:
:iconnaughty-kittykitty: :icondvntgrafx:

I would recommend any and all of these folks. Some are good at one type, some at another, some pull rabbits out of hats when you least expect them to. And some are up-and-coming stars that you cannot afford to miss. Browse some galleries, folks!! You will find something you like. Hey, buy some prints while you're at it. Most have commission info posted in journals, or will gladly explain to you their commission terms if you send them a note.

(Artists! If I've paid you for art, and you're not here... drop me a note, I'll put you in the rogues gallery.)

In Limbo (these artists seem to have disappeared):

I can't thank these folks enough. New pictures of my characters always bring a smile to my face. I don't care if your artwork is the type stuck on the fridge... if you like my character concepts enough to try and draw them, you're cool with me. :)

Not usually into the Gorean milieu (I'd be one hell of a Panther bitch if I ever played in it) but the render is JUST so well done.

I'll be honest, I'm no fan of the Gor books, but I like it as a setting for fantasy renders. :) Thanks for commenting, and for adding my stuff to your collection. :)
