I am a self taught digital artist with experience in Photoshop, Paint.Net, Autodesk Inventor and 3DS Max. I enjoy the outdoors and like to spend my free time running, snorkelling and sport-fishing. I live in South Africa (ZA), speak English fluently and I am busy studying Mechanical Engineering.

Here's the list of applications I use for development of mods and for general purposes. To start off there is paint.NET, which is quite simply a fantastic imagery editor. It's free and with the aid of a few plug-ins can do just about the same things photo-shop can. Next on the list is 3DS max, which I'm still not 100% acquainted with... 3DS Max is a powerful tool for making models & animating, it is quite complex for the beginner but after a few tutorials, some light will be shun on the matter ; ). Next there's photo-shop CS5, which is a powerful but complex imagery tool. Photo Shop is good but also carries a hefty price, but remember you get what you pay for ; ). Next there's Notepad ++, which is basically an overhauled notepad, I find it useful for scripting. It's also free.

• Paint.NET
• 3DS Max
• Photo-shop CS5
• Notepad ++

So there you have it, I'm not the best writer when it comes to articles but I thought this would be a nice idea, I hope this article has furthered some or other cause. Thanks for reading and feel free to leave a comment. I have posted a link to paint.NET for anyone who wants to get it...

Get Paint.NET!
