I am older, disabled, with severe RA.  I can’t do what I used to do, paint 54mm miniatures, scale modeling, dioramas.  I can’t hold a paintbrush reliably anymore or use any of the tools I used to.

But I can use a mouse.  This is like creating and painting again.  I’ve missed that so much.  I’m very happy being able to create something again.

I’m already budgeting for more purchases.  My imagination of what I can do is far beyond the Default items smile

So, Here I am.  Happy to have discovered this.

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

Welcome to Daz, standfast. You will find a lot of people here who can’t paint or sculpt as they are used to doing, so they turn to 3d.

A word is not the same with one writer as with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket

Heat and animosity, contest and conflict, may sharpen the wits, although they rarely do; they never strengthen the understanding, clear the perspicacity, guide the judgment, or improve the heart
