First, and foremost, I'm a surrealist, and these fetish portraits are an extended hobby, but if there is enough interest or requests, I may go commercial. The way I work, currently, is I design the portrait based on what I know or see in the model's personal interests or life story and draw a rough sketch. Then I hire a photographer to create the hi-res stills against a backdrop, at my direction. Then I use a combination of 3D CGI and photoshop to create the surrealist imagery in final form.

Wow! You've been on here for 3 years and I've never seen your work. Better late than never I guess. A few months ago I thought DA going to end soon. Not much activity, not much creativity but lately I've been finding some really incredible artist. You're the latest and maybe the greatest I've seen in a long time. I love the shiny latex hence my avatar. I think your "draw a rough sketch" method is great. Every image in your gallery is just perfect. I keep looking at your gallery as I write this. You should see my face right now. you would get a good laugh. ;) Well anyways you're a visual genius with a very resourceful methodology that allows you to create basically anything you can dream of.
