location: Thailand
Member Type: Enthusiast
Expertise: Rusty Programmer
Tools: Mostly free stuff: Blender 2.49, GIMP, DAZ Studio 3/4.6, UV Mapper (free version), Terragen Classic, etc, but also Poser 6/8/9, and now Poser Pro 2014 and Reality!

(13Jan15 EDIT: There's a bug found in all my DAZ Studio ShaderMixer shaders, in the environment mapped relections - see http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/7582/P15/#744801 for the fix)

For the last two decades of the 20th century I was a software monkey in the UK. But then I escaped and ran away to S.E.Asia! It was here, around 2007, in an internet cafe,  that I (re)discovered 3D - I somehow chanced upon a download for DAZ Studio 1/2. I quickly became a 'collector', downloading all the (legally) free 3D models I could find, and around 2009 I picked up a bargain copy of Poser 6. But like many collectors I fell into a common trap - maintaining my collection in a pristine, unused condition!

In early 2010 I discovered Blender and started producing occasional models and textures of my own. With my rusty-software-monkey 'skills' I also started hacking together my own scripts for DAZ Studio and Poser. Any reasonable models, textures, or scripts that I've produced has been released as freebies over at Renderosity and here at ShareCG.

About My Freebies

All my freebies are available here at ShareCG and at Renderosity FreeStuff. And I'm still making lots of stuff. It's just that recently I've been having far too much fun playing with the toys in my runtime and making pictures. So the planned work on my freebies has suffered. But since nobody's actually asked about progress on the Smart+/PropGoto+ update, or anything else (except the S.E.Asian helmet - sorry Mal, I will get round to it, but I just keep getting distracted!) it's all on the back-burner for now. Please do feel free to chase me up if there's anything I've said I'll do - I often need just a small shove!

About My Pictures

A couple of years ago I finally ceased my endless quest for freebies. Curiously my runtime was bulging at the seams - and to be honest I had no real idea of what was inside it! So I started to play with the stuff I'd collected.

But recently my toys have really started to come to life... pictures have just started 'happening'. I simply open Poser, peek inside to see what all those little guys and gals and beasties are up to, and hit 'render' when they tell me to!

So you see, I can't really take credit for any of the pictures I post here...   ;o)

Other Places To Find Me

As of early July 2014 my own website, Unreal Imperfect, is getting a bit of TLC to make up for a year of neglect. I've got a separate blog, and I'm also at Renderosity, DeviantArt, DAZ3D, HiveWire3D, and maybe one or two other places - I'm user 3dcheapskate wherever I go (so far). If you want to get in touch with me for any reason (e.g. problems with one of my freebies, asking why I haven't done something I said I was going to, etc) you can send me a PM here, or get in touch via any of the other places I've listed.
