2011 Year of Learning, Patience, Quality and Growth

This new year which is now almost two months old, for me is going to be a year of change.  I am going to try and make “ART” this year, yep I said that I am going to try and make ART.

I have been posting my art on deviantART for 2 years, but now I want to really stretch myself and create “complete” art.  I started posting fractal art (apophysis, and others), and then I started using Vue, and Daz Studio.  I have even combined all three of these forms in many of my submissions to see what I could do with all of them.  I use to just slap a scene together in a matter of minutes, tweak it, render it, and post it on dA.  These usually only took me an hour or two to put together, and then wait anywhere from a few minutes to 12 hours for the scene to render.  I learned a great deal about these programs and myself over the past two years by doing this.  The biggest takeaway from this learning was I still don’t know nearly enough to accomplish all I want to create.

So gone are the days of trying to just create image after image after image.  Now I will be taking art through steps or stages until I have what is in my mind the final image.  I truly don’t believe that art is ever finished, but it does come to an endpoint.

I am going to be very patient this year until I find my endpoint, and not turn out art submissions like fast food.  I also am going to invest more time learning from others via tutorials, or just asking for some help or advice.  I am going to learn Hexagon this year and try my hand at modeling some things to use in my renders. I am going to reinvest some energy in to Vue and dig deeper in to what I can do with that wonderful program.  I want to get back in to making fractals with apophysis and learn mandlebulb 3d as well, since it looks so very intriguing.  I will be doing more website design work as well, which reminds me I need to give my website a complete renovation…

I am also doing some commercial work this year by making logos and creating print art for those who are looking for something new.  I can be contacted for this by using the contact me page.  I will even create you an avatar if you need one…

For those of you who follow me and those of you who may follow me in the future, I hope you enjoy my journey this year and stick around for the ride.  This is going to be a great year!!!  Maybe this year you’ll find my work in a magazine somewhere, who knows…

I want to thank all of my friends everywhere for all of your kind words and support so…
Thank You!!! 🙂

The most special thank you goes to my wife…  Heather, you have no idea how much you inspire me!!!
