Well, I’m a little late with an introduction post - Joined when I bought Bryce 6 (when it first came out), but my life was diverted for awhile and I never really got into ver. 6, and haven’t hung out here till now…
My name’s Carl, but everyone calls me Joe. I live in the state of Texas (more like a state of mind than a location). I started using Bryce when it was at ver. 2, and was a Bryce-freak for years, tried 3DS Max when I had access to it (too expensive for me), took a class in Lightwave once (again, too expensive), even tried Maya (WAY too expensive!). Tried Blender for awhile and really liked that, but always came back to Bryce.
I made a little money about 10 years ago doing, among other freelance things, graphic design/modeling online on freelance sites like RentACoder.com. Used Bryce to build 3D images/objects like trophies, banners, etc. using the Bryce primitives mainly. Other than that my career has been mainly in IT, so 3D art has mostly been a hobby for me, and it’s been a while since I’ve had the time to get into it.
But I grabbed the free Bryce/DS/Hexagon deal, and I got the bug again and lots of time to spend. Hoping to take my Bryce art to the next level with Hex and DS
So I guess I’ll be pestering y’all for awhile - glad to be here!
