Hya, you probably know David Collins, one of the hard workers who toils on the Carrara magazine along with Danas Jetbird et al.
Well David has a new book on blurb. He’s worked hard on it - I’ve been watching his blog for a while. It’s well worthwhile having a squiz at.

Cheers

Thanks for that, HeadWax…
I’ll (not) watch out for those little wee - ones! Unless they need my help, of course.

Very cool.  Have to show that to a friend of mine who owns a shop that specializes in fairy art.

Wow! Thank you all for looking. smile I’m glad you like it.

All the images in the book were created in Carrara 8 Pro. I had a great fun putting it all together. I’ve just started working on a new book of fairies (‘cause I just like them). I’ll be using Carrara again along with Poser and the new Reality plugin. Poser and Reality are great, but Carrara is much faster.

I’ve learned a lot since the last book, so hopefully the new one will be even better. I haven’t been to Carrara Cafe in a while. I’ll have to see if there’s a place for wips, so I can post the new images as they come.

Thanks again for all the great comments. Made my day. (and a special thanks to Andrew)

Sure! Just start a new topic:

I’d be very interested in hearing your workflow, and also your opinions on publishing in print. cool smile

Hmm don’t encourage David to post them elsewhere.  We really enjoyed seeing him working on all the images in this foirst book, when he was posting them in the ART Studio Forum here, cool smirk

I’d have to start two topics,then. I don’t know if I could stand the strain. lol

I’d be very glad to share what I know. I’ll have to get my thoughts together and give it a go.

An artist can never have his work showing in too many places.

Can he? smile

I’m really excited about this next batch of fairies. Every image is a new challenge and working in two different programs (Carrara and Poser) just makes it more fun.

I wouldn’t think he could. Especially when it’s something really cool, that all should see.

Man, you should just take that whole idea that you’ve begun and run with it now. Just embellish and cut loose - for I wouldn’t think that it would ever really need to end… ever. Book after book on fairies and what they do - what they look like. I really enjoyed your book and look forward to more of where ever your imagination takes you.

If I run I might fall down. LOL

I think I might manage a fast walk though.

I’m glad you like my fairies. They really are a combination of two of my favorite art subjects, fairies and pinups, so they’re actually fairy pinups. I have another series I did a while ago called ‘Odd Girls’. Those images are on my website under the Projects heading. I keep coming back to both fairies and odd girls. My only real problem is I can’t get my wife to paint herself blue and dress up like a fairy.LOL

Very nice, and a good intro to Blurb which I had not heard of.

I do short animations in Carrara, and have very little need for Poser anymore.  I’m curious if you’ve found limitations in Carrara, where you need Poser.

I find it somewhat liberating not to be encumbered by accuracy.
