akanay's Profile Picture
Joe Kurz
My name is Joe Kurz, born in 1961, and I live near Munich, Germany. I work as a software testing engineer.
Arts and drawing were my favorite subjects at school time. At that time I wrote a couple of science fiction and fantasy short stories (but - to be honest - not too successfully). Many of my pictures are telling themes of those stories. Now I am working to build up a story-driven framework around my pictures ...
I began with computing, programming and computer generated graphics about 1986 as a student.
My first attempts
I did with good old Paintbrush, later I moved to Picture Publisher (which I still use for postwork). Four years ago I discovered PovRay as a 3D modelling and rendering tool. But those pictures were too static and without human or animal characters.
I had a "fractal period" as well,
thus I programmed my first fractal generators with Turbo Pascal. At that time I had to wait sometimes for hours to get my pics rendered. The same result now I get within a few seconds ...
Now I am an enthusiastic user of Poser (started in 2001) which offers fantastic possibilities to create
scenes populated with humans and animals as well. And - of course - I love playing with sweet princesses, evil sorcerers and high mages. Another
project I am playing with is creating erotic pictures using a variety of
lovely well endowed girls.
I started with simple 3D modelling around
2002. I am learning by doing, I am using some free programs like Amapi and Anim8or for my first simple architectonic and scifi models as shown in my freestuff area. Recently I bought Cinema4D, but found no time yet to play with it ...
My latest approach is the creation of 3D generated comics. Now - after all so many years - finally I am able to tell my stories (scifi and fantasy I invented during my school time) with colorful pics and use my internet gallery as a kind of showcase. I never ever thought that this would be possible and affordable one day ... Sometimes I feel like an art director who creates some kind of movie ... </P>
