What I like varies- but for me body shape and character is key

I have been sculpting for over a decade, mostly in the miniatures and toy soldier industry. I am also doing soap stone carving as a new art form. I am available for new contract work- just message me.

I do photography in my free time and have my work featured currently in a local gallery.

I do paint every now and then and though I enjoy it I have found that my own style is far from 'commercial' so like all of my art- I do it for me.

I come to DA to see the WIDE range of art and style out there in the world. If I 'Fav' your work it means that something in the image spoke to me. By that I mean there is an energy or a feeling there. Yes, my Favs are full of nudes, robots, nudes, guns, nudes, tanks, nudes, animals, and the occasional nude. In what can only be the ultimate in hypocrisy I once saw an artist that snaps photos of artistic nudes post that 'a person with favorite folder full of nudes is a sad and sick thing'. I can only assume that they were working out their own angst with nudity in their art :p As a sculptor I am a fan of the human form and as a male I much prefer the female form. Respect is key.

Pet Peeves:
1) I think EVERYONE can make art, and since it is a personal taste thing no one has the right to judge another, at most you can judge your own works.

2)That said I am pretty much done with joining Groups. I see little reason to join a group of other artists who can decide if my art meets with their approval. I do this for me so why would I ever want to please THEM.

3) Photography and computer manipulation of images are two different arts. If thats the point then great- but to mix one entirely with the other is a whole different breed. Simply put I have found that most of the groups, landscape photography in particular, have become photoshop mediums. Although I can spend time tweaking every photo to remove every 'imperfection' and make a commercial work of art I much prefer natural photos where the beauty captured was as close as I can get to the actual beauty seen. Not that I dislike others who do that art, but it isnt my style of art and I find that the 'perfect' hues and saturation's of a tweaked photo to be sterile and devoid of life.
