I'm definitely no 'artist' - I'm just a guy who uses clever computer software to convert some of the ideas in my head into something visual. And I'm still resisting the urge to pick up a pencil and sketchpad.

Random Favourites

I love browsing through pages of random thumbnails and clicking on anything that looks interesting, but very few places have a random option for browsing (RDNA is the exception).

I rather dislike the omnipresent "Popular" and "What's Hot" options. I also dislike the "Undiscovered" option here at DA - how can anything that's been only been posted for a few days be considered 'undiscovered'?

Despite this I've found quite a few pictures here at DA that I do like...


Journal History

I've been playing around with a couple of amusing (but rather rude) ideas for pictures based upon the theme of "The Occasional Misadventures Of Tricksy Belle The Fairy Ingenue". I'm imagining something more innuendo than in your face - think of the old-fashioned saucy seaside postcards.

Misadventure Number 1: NO Tricksy Belle ! Not THOSE mushrooms ! Not like THAT !
(you need to picture garden gnomes sitting on toadstools...)

Misadventure Number 2: Tricksy Belle Surprises The Examination Board Of The Thieves' Guild Of Lankhmar. NO Tricksy Belle ! Your thieves CANT !
(anybody familiar with the old D&D game should get that...)

Yes, sometimes childish schoolboy humour can be fun!


3dcheapskate's Profile Picture
I was born a few years before the first moon landing - I don't remember it although I was old enough to draw crayon pictures complete with lunar and command modules, space monsters, and cowboys with giant springs in their boots. That's probably still the best picture I've ever created.

When I was a kid I used to have an Action Man (the British version of the G.I. Joe action figure) and occasionally spent time setting up scenes with bricks and stones and twigs for him to have adventures in.

Today I'm an adult (although I know many people who'd question that). Instead of paper and crayons, or an Action Man with piles of mud and sticks and stones, I now have a computer, some clever software (Poser, Blender, DAZ Studio) and a content library.

But my mind is still the one that delights at the thought of cowboys with giant springs in their boots on the moon.

You'll also find me at ShareCG, RDNA, Renderosity, DAZ3D, HiveWire3D, and maybe a couple of other places - I'm user 3dcheapskate wherever I go (so far), and at any time I'm usually active at one or other of these places.

I also have a website ( ) and blog ( ) although I hardly ever seem to touch them.

You're most welcome - your "Filomena" (… ) has given me some new ideas to try in my imaginary Poser /DAZ Studio world !  :)

Thanks for the fave!

You're welcome. Your earlier 'Songbird' image is one of the few '3D art' pictures that survived the recent 'pruning' of my favourites. She's such a wonderful idea, and a great inspiration...

...ah! And I now know the answer to my "Where Has All The 3D Gone ?" journal post…

Glad I could answer the question without knowing the question....

That's the sign of a truly wise man...  LOL

My pleasure, and thank you for creating the group. Still looking forward to seeing the HiveWire3D gallery with all 154 HiveWire entries - I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they  get it done soon.
