I blame my parents.I'm as atheistic as the day I was born, though I wasn't always.I like playing the guitar, playing a LAN game with family and friends, making comic books, and a few other things.I look forward to posting and reading replies. Maybe I'll get to know a few of you in time.

I use DAZ3D Studio which is a free piece of software for creating 3D renders. I've seen some photographic looking ones done by some. Fortunately, that isn't the look I'm going for.Second, I take the render and touch it up in Photoshop Elements which isn't as full blown as Photoshop but isn't as expensive either and does what I need it to do.Third, I add a couple of filters to it that give the look I want it to have. This is a consistent thing I do with all of the renders but after I've made any alterations.Fourth, I use Comic Life 3 for the panel layout, the panels themselves, the text, the speech balloons, and background for some of the pages - usually for the chapter headings.Finally, I email them to a friend in Australia who puts them on her website. It's free and no advertisements at the time of this writing, and I don't ask for donations. I'm pretty anonymous. If you want to look at the three I've created so far you can visit www.renderforever.com. There is a tab at the top called Wildcards. Hover over that and you'll be able to select between them.
