Maxunderground news unavailable

my freedom has come with a loss of a career and a change of a business and the inspiration of maxforums
show user profile  chillywilson

It's been awhile since I posted. I just wanted to vent on the last 4 months and how maxforums
trolling has changed my life.

As some of you may know I own a business doing local commercials and branding for other agencies, as business slumped I had found another job with another agency. I was required to sign a non compete clause with them as they also ran me ragged. After starting to convert my business into just my artwork and style, another agency and old client of mine contacted me to do a 3d job. Since I had a non compete I forwarded the job to the place I was working for. One of the bosses was so threatened that someone would contact me to do work that they fired me and since I was in between quarters I get no unemployment.

While all of this was going on, there was a composite photographer that has been in my head for a long time now, I first saw his work posted on this site "christophe gilbert."

As product photography, photo manipulation and rendering techniques are my favorite things to do I start revamping my style and art. In the past 3 weeks I've picked up 3 clients, 1 national and my salary is starting to come back to normal and I've had some great recognition. As my car still may be taken by the bank I have never been more confident that I am on the right track to my niche market.

My new web site is expected to be finished in 2 to 3 weeks I will keep you posted and also for being a great site I will link you under the about section for inspiration.

ps. I haven't forgotten about my cave creature competition/ update coming soon.

Well done mate there`s nothing better than saying fuckit i`m doing it my way and sticking with it. Stay positive and if things ever get on top of you ( which they inevitably do ), just remember that there`s only so much you can physically do.. Think my own situation is crossing over into my thoughts at this point :)

here is the first sneak peak on the new stuff. let me know what you think. Unfortunately I was told not to show anything else in the until series is finished.

I was wondering if there is a place where I can create a crit area of just people that i trust and invite.
if that doesn't exist I'll make one is anyone interested in being part. Sorry I just would like private place where people that are working on special projects can crit. each other with out finding half done work on.

thanks, and you can crit on this I accidentally posted it on FB 2 weeks ago and had to pull it.

the girl and the boy was shot together and then PSed to all hell.

Wings done in cg and the fog was a blender simulation.

This was a personal one but the whole series has some commercial stuff in it.
I had my 12 year old photo apprentice hold a 5x4 reflector and his brother hold a speed light.

the boy's head, I liked only as a merge, it was made up of 4 different shots to give me the look
I wanted.
