Under the Neon Lights by LiiLiiFish

I love the colors in this image. The reflection is very cool, I thought that it was some water with ripples in it at first, then I real...

Drop II by RobinHedberg

Excellent use of your depth of field. Noting that a 5.6 aperture was used to bring our attention to the water drop on the chain link. I...

Cherry by azieser
Try this one.... Paint a cherry, use any media you want and post it to DA, lets see how many cherries we can get on here. :D You can also draw using any tools you like as well. It is sort of a meditation thing, you should take your time and really concentrate on the Cherry when you are making it.  Send me links to it if you like!

English for cavemen by azieser
English for cavemen
I keep on getting emails at work that must have been written by cavemen and these are from people who only speak one language.... So anyways I hope this becomes a real book someday!
Well today I paid for my events at Gencon 2015 in Indianapolis IN July 30th - Aug 2nd, I believe.... It was tense as a group of my friends and I were all connected on Skype and primed to click the reserve events button. We had all pre-picked the events and had them on our wish lists, still as these events go nothing is promised. We were having  a great time going over the various choices that each of us had made for games to play and events to attend. My favorite is the Dicetower Live podcast event that will have over 400 in attendance for the show! Still there will be tons of games to play and lots to spend money on once the show opens. Heck the trip can be an adventure all of its own. So the clocked ticked down to noon eastern time and then my friends and I, plus several thousands of people clicked the purchase events button. I was number 4,263 in line to purchase my tickets. Seems like a long line but it actually only took about an hour to work our way down through the list to pay for the events. I managed to get all my spots that I wanted, did I mention that there are limited seats for each event? I even managed to get into an event that only has 8 seats during the entire show!

So that is my exciting morning of signing up and paying for Gencon 2015! Now to save up money for the trip, hotel, food and purchases to be had at the show!  Maybe I will see some of you there. If you are attending let me know and we can hold a mini meet-up!

Well where to start....
Well, lets see, first My father met my mother then the stork dropped me down in the cabbage patch. But my father being a busy farmer did not notice me for a couple of months, during that time I was raised by wild boars... Then the Ufo's came and here I am..... Wait, that's not correct...

Okay, lets try I grew up on a rural farm in Iowa, joined the army, traveled the world for 12 years then ended right back in Iowa. I currently reside in Hiawatha, Iowa where I work full time at the Ottsen Oil Company and write on the weekends.

I like photography, painting, writing, hanging out at the coffee shops and my friends. I never seem to have any down time as I always have projects in the works. Even now I am writing one novel and two short stories at the same time whilst playing my drums and guitar.

Life is for the living and I am getting some living done!

I have several years photography experience. I started taking photos when I was seven with my grandmothers old brownie camera. I bought my first camera of my own when I was 12 and have never looked back. I also love to work with 3D programs and photoshop. I have used Illustrator and several other graphic programs as well. As always if you have a specific question on any techniques that I may use please send me a note or leave a message and I will get back to you with the answer if I know it.

Currently I am still using a Cannon 30D (one tough camera!) Digital camera and I am planning on purchasing the 50D later on for my work.

Current Residence: Hiawatha, Iowa

Operating System: Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, Linux, Jolicloud, Moblin

Hi Allan, stopped by a while ago to thank you for selecting Early Morning Silhouette as a favorite.  Before I could get to the comment section, I started getting carried away by your art which I find stunning and wonderful. (Those graphic circles would have made a mint in the days of black lights and hippies.)  I got side tracked into your gallery for endless moments and ended up selecting a favorite and watching you.  I hope you are having a great time at Gencon in Indy (my home).  

May I recommend a trip by the Canal (evening or early morning) and the Slippery Noodle, Indiana's olderst bar.  Actually is has great atmosphere, pretty good food at fair price and blues and jazz.  These venues are only a couple of blocks from the convention center.  Enjoy your visit.
