For years, when it came to making artwork my toolbox usually consisted of just a well-sharpened No.2 pencil and a few clean sheets of paper.  Using just these materials, I was able to create some really nice looking drawings that my friends and family enjoyed seeing and gave me a sense of accomplishment.

The only downside to this is that I have a really bad habit of starting a drawing and not finishing.  I know that a lot of artists do this, but for me it's not a matter of losing my inspiration or the drive to complete the drawing, it's a matter of...cleanliness.  What I mean by that is, usually when I end up finishing a drawing, the drawing itself would be perfect but the paper would be a complete mess due to my habit of almost constantly using a eraser.  This is always discouraging because I would have an amazing drawing that I was proud of but looked like I had run it over with my car.

In order to get rid of this problem I have decided to get with the times and trade my pencils and paper for a digital drawing program, I don't have it yet because I need to get the money first but this is what I am going to do.

I have also decided to learn how to use DAZ3D Studio, it's free and even though most of the add-on's cost a bit, I can still find some free stuff to add to the program.  CG artwork is something that has really had an impact on me and I figured that I would take a shot at it myself.

Right now I'm just trying to get familiar with the program but once I figure out how to use I will start uploading whatever I come up with.


Oh and one more thing,

I finally received my Bachelors Degree for Music!  Now I'm working towards getting my Masters degree for Jazz Guitar.

I live in the small farming town of Peru, in Northern NY. The it's very peaceful up here but at times it can be too peaceful. My passion is in music, I taught myself how to play guitar when I was 17 years old after which I started my own rock band with my brother Cody. The band is called Jar'd Spiders.

I am currently studying at SUNY Plattsburgh as a Music Major. I like to draw comic book stye art , as well as writing songs, music and exploring the nearby Adirondack Mountains.

One of the coolest moments in my life was when I went to a Weezer concert and entered a singing contest and won which got me on stage to sing with the band. I am told that I am a big kid, which is true considering that I still watch cartoons and stuff like that.

I just started racing rc trucks and I have recently started learning how to yoyo.
