|...an eclectic collection.|
|The top ten renders measure by 's over the last 12 months.|
|Collection of the best renders I've done since opening my account. All top ten renders are included here as well as a few personal favorites.|
Some good friends from Second Life (SL) encouraged me to join DA and I love it |
In SL I love to explore new things and fantasies that time and circumstance have not allowed me to experience as much as I would like. So you will see postings here of SL friends and adventures. I also, since this is DA, will post some of my attempts at traditional art -- scans of what I have done in the past and recent efforts reflecting my new interests.
Finally, I hope to combine some of traditioanl art interests,SL, and new digital drawing technology and see what I can learn and share.
Most important, I want to have fun and share my interests with new friends
Feel free to contact me here or in SL and share your thoughts, impressions, and views.

Spring is here and I have taken a few days off from my real job to focus on my other job which is running a farm. I carefully watched the weather to make sure my vacation days were timed so that I could work outside and get the seeding, fertilizing, fence mending, pruning, landscaping and gardening etc. done without mother nature interrupting. As of two days ago there wasn’t a cloud in the weather report. Yesterday was the first of three of vacation days devoted to farm work –it rained, hard, all day.
So with my plans spoiled, I spent the day at my desk working on a variety of art products, which you have seen. I think four postings in 24 hours is a record for me.
First. I am doing some more drawing. Trying to improve my digital painting and drawing skills has always been one of main goals in DA –its just hard and sooooo time consuming. I am working my way through several “how to” books as well as online tutorials. So you will see more of those efforts. I don’t post them to groups because I consider them “practice.” Some I don't post at all. Those of you who watch me will see them and I love your comments, but understand that I consider myself very much a neophyte in the world of digital drawing and painting so be kind and patient!
I am also trying to continue to push the SL art pieces. This is just because its fun to do and because it really helps out when I do the SL comics which I’m working on. The “Selfie” and the “Maiden America” renders are examples of me working on those skills.
“Maiden America” is also an example of upcoming work. Etherea and I have three big projects on-going or coming up. First, on her page you can see her Batwoman and Robin comic in which I am just modeling (which is fun for a change! ). Coming-up we have a graphic novel featuring “Maiden America” and “Major Liberty,” as well as graphic novel featuring the “Sisters of Mercy.” Thankfully, Etherea will be doing the writing for both of those (Sisters is actually already written) and I will be taking the lead on art with her help.
The up-coming SL projects, however, will not begin to move to the front burner until after Valkyrie Issue 2 is finished. I hope you are enjoying it. About six or so pages to go and then a break before issue 3. For those of you who are wondering, Issue 3 will go in a slightly different direction with more character development and less action, but it’s a couple months down the road. In between I will be doing some 3D work with the various Valkyrie characters that will be fun for me and I hope for you.
Finally, you will notice my latest 3d render is the first in a boudoir series I’m working on. Its also the first non-reality render I have done in a long time. I’m going to be experimenting with both reality and delight render engines in the boudoir series to see what kind of effects I can get. This series will emphasize mood and light, it will mostly be in black and white, and will be an attempt to incorporate some photography techniques into 3d. I’m looking forward to doing it and hope the results are pleasing.
Okay, that ‘s a short update on what’s happening in the world of Donna’s Art.
Thanks as always for all your comments, visits, faves and watches! You, the visitors to my DA site are the main reason its here and I can’t thank you enough for the motivation you provide!
Take care, and I hope Spring is springing wherever you are!
|The webcam has been deactivated by DA but I still want to display some of the best art of Etherea S, my SL girlfriend. Visit her at and review her gallery for some of the best and most erotic of SL based art.|
Etherea is a very talented writer --make sure you look for the short stories that she attaches to many of her great picts!
