..has been decided. No, really. I'm doing this.

I have decided to begin the process of transitioning from female to male in earnest. It took me 24 years to figure it all out but I'm 99% sure that I am ready now. Gotta keep that 1% for inspiration and humility.

So, then, all are welcome to submit their opinion on whether it would be acceptable for me to change my DA gender from 'Other' to 'Male'. I feel that 'Other' will be my only option here because, for unsurpassable medical reasons, I will never be as male as I'd like to be.

No matter. I am what I am. I love males. I am male. I am a "he" now...but there are a few that will always be welcome to refer to me as "she". You know who you are ♥

I hope to get at least one more image done before relocating. Cannot wait to settle & start over again.

Hi there :wave: Yep, that's the *real me* pictured (finally)! I'm a hobbyist and developing artist. The bulk of my work involves creating 3D images in D|S4Pro and using digital painting plus other post-working techniques in attempts to create a style which is a mixture of painterly and photo-realistic. I started out as a traditional artist prior to the dawn of digital art so painting is one of my greatest passions.

I prefer the male form and much of my work falls into the male/male romance and affection category, so be warned if this is not your thing. I also enjoy creating fantasy images and have a specific series related to my dorky D&D inspired campaign/story, The Auriellian Prophecy. While I do not consider myself a writer, I began this storyline for the purpose of challenging myself to take scenes from it and bring them to 3D life.

In addition, I enjoy creating digital seamless fabrics, some of which are for sale at YURdigital and some for free at Renderosity, along with a small selection of basic 3D objects which I've modeled & mapped using Wings3D. I have included the links below. Please feel free to have a browse at your leisure :nod:

Something important I would like to share here; I want to let everyone know that I rarely comment on images featuring the female form. Please take no offense. It is not you, nor your artwork; it's only me, something quite personal which I won't get into. When I do comment on any genre of artwork it is because I genuinely like it. I don't expect comments in return. If you genuinely like any of my images enough to comment or favorite, that just rocks my world and encourages me further :love:

Since joining DA my skills sets and inspiration have sky-rocketed. I am overwhelmed by the enormous spectrum of talent here and also the vast offerings of shared knowledge and resources. I'm very happy to be a part of this community and hope to be able to contribute as much as I can. Contact me if you'd like to share & compare notes =D Constructive criticism is always welcome!

~*Update*~ I've added my own chat room :hooray:…

Lastly, just a gentle notice that my artwork is not open stock unless otherwise specified in my comments on the individual posts. If you see anything you'd like to use/re-post/share, etc, please respect my copyrights and Note me to ask permission.

Thanks so much for visiting and for reading. I hope you'll enjoy my offerings!
