Dave, a digital 2D-3D artist, began with simple drawing lessons by his mother, through color lessons of paint-by-number, high school and college art classes and self-education through observation, reading and experimentation, and even through full time non-art-related work, he still found time to create many works of art, including an a comic book for the first disabled athlete on the Presidential Physical Fitness Council. Dave recently went totally digital and uses his Wacom Cintiq display, which is not only a computer monitor, but also a canvas on which he can directly paint, draw, color, and sketch with the traditional-art-mimicking Corel Painter program, or model in three dimensions with the industry standard modeling program, Pixologic ZBrush. To have a three dimensional sculpture of his subjects, Dave learned to create 3D models out of polygons, texture and paint them, and render in a 3D environment. He found that affords him as much realism as possible, and he loves the real feel of creating that way first before setting his subjects down on the digital canvas for painting. With his background in electronics and computers, it was a natural step for Dave to transfer his talent to digital art, and with today's software and artist hardware, it was also a pleasure once learned. And he constantly strives to learn better modeling techniques daily, and ways to integrate his 3D scenes into his digital painting, which he also tries to improve at and learn as many techniques as possible for.
As digital art is his only medium, Dave's gallery here is his only public form of display. He likes the advantages of being all digital. If he publishes a new work, he can also make immediate changes, improvements, modifications or versions. In a sense, his gallery is ever-changing and evolving. Art that is being reworked may find itself in the Work-In-Progress gallery. The exceptional printing quality, printing services and range of print variations found here at Fine Art America in Dave's opinion are excellent.
