When I joined DeviantArt my ambition for want of a better word, was to just lurk. Search the site for inspirational work. Mostly photography. Mostly festish, artistic nude and what I could find of industrial ruins.
The first surprise was the quality of work submitted by people. And the desire to create just permeating the site. Then I got in contact with a few deviants and found them so friendly and nice.
Recently I have discovered that what little 3D modeling I do is probably worthy of submission. So I will have to look into doing that.
And starting today it appears I am myself a fetish model.
Life certainly changes when you are not looking.
