Great, glad I can help. I'll try to contribute to your Roger Dean project when I
can. Always loved his work...Cool concept to model and animate.

Patrick Woodroffe was my illustration hero when I was in high school. I keep his
Mythopoeikon book beside me for inspiration. His early pencil and etching work
is very nice.

Here a link to some of my early sketches and 3D. I've only had the site up for a
few months so it's very much a work in progress ...like the rest of my life. :)
I started adding some of my resent POV work. I'm currently modeling bugs for
some rendering ideas.

I lost old website...now I'm using a free one. :)
