|FROM THE MUNDANE TO THE ODD...|
I am classically trained as a mechanical draftsman and with various CAD and AutoCAD programs. I self taught myself SketchUp, while Blender and sculptris is an ongoing learning process.
I have more of a background in technical drawing, than freehand art which reflects in my art and comments.
I am working on several story-line projects;
Sky Marshals - mann-of-lamancha.deviantart.co…
Premise: An old world airship survives to a post "apocolyptic" but recovering, world.
Although stalled frequently, I'm trying to re-energize myself to starting this... again.
I have two other stories that are so back burner-ed that I won't bother mentioning them.
For the past 7 years or so, I have been designing and making layouts for a real life functionally independent rural small town, which I named LaMancha. This is a pet project of mine and I am not looking for investors.
Interests and Personality:
I like older things typically from about the 1800's to the 1920's which can be said why I like the steampunk genre so much.
My focus on creating such concepts has been on the "functional" more than just for the "novelty" of it.
As a product of the 60's era, I have always had a keen interest in ecology and our interacting with the environment.
I am hardly pure and when I was young, every other word out of my mouth was some slur, epithet or another. It doesn't shock me when people use potty mouth, on the contrary I critically grade them.
I wholly support people expressing negative comments regarding my art. Just make it something more than "This looks like "
I like helping people out, so I am not adverse to doing requests (better if it is commission work ). Please contact me by private message for further details in either regard.
Like many Americans from New York, I SPEAK a scattering of many different languages. Anything I TYPE or spell is courtesy of google translate.
