I don't like talking about myself. I'd rather talk about what I do, make, or am interested in, so that's what I'll do here. I've been a professional artist since graduating high school, providing paintings and illustrations for more books, magazines, comics and private clients than I can honestly remember at this point. I'm an obsessive workaholic, which is both a strength and a weakness in that it can definitely lead to other parts of my life suffering somewhat, but I'm pretty much ok with it. 3D art became a kind of obsession for me starting in the early-mid 90's when, while working as a production artist for a large sports memorabilia, I had my first encounter with Ray Dream, Infini-D and the first version of Poser, then from Metacreations. It may be dating myself here, but I think I've had a very fortunate vantage point on the explosion of art, technology and communication because of being just old enough to have had to begun my career without the internet, but also just young enough to have evolved right alongside it. Back in the day, I produced my first personal 3d art pieces using a home-built PC with a 90mhz Pentium and a whopping 96 megs of ram, running 3D Studio DOS and eventually, Max... blazing
for it's day. Over the years, my tools changed as they did for most, evolving with the times. Max gave way to Maya for me, and Zbrush became a primary tool. I've had the good fortune to have gone on from my roots in comic book illustration, something I still love dearly, to have a wide variety of experiences in gaming, broadcast and film animation. In 2000, my wife, Rebekah and I, struck out on our own, taking my online moniker of Sixus1 and turning it into the business, Sixus1 Media, which we have to this day.

Thanks for checking out my work. Hopefully there's something in my visual ramblings that might appeal to you. And if not, well... thanks anyway. :) -Les

Just a quick note here to say how much I appreciate seeing this new group on here. It's cool to know that there are some folks out there who dig the work Rebekah and I do enough to say such kind things and start up something like this. Whether it gets a ton of traffic or only stays a small thing among a close group of folks, it's still just a really amazing compliment and I am incredibly humbled. So grateful for the folks who watch for my artwork out there and who support what I do as an artist and producer of 3D content. sixus1-arcanum.deviantart.com/

I am a big fan of your models- your monsters are very original and well designed. I love that you have brought so many Lovecraftian creatures to 3D life.

Thanks for all your creativity and generosity!

Was checking to see if there was a Sixus1 appreciation group and found you had a Deviant Account, and figured I'd drop in and say hello. I've had a lot of fun with your figures of the years (productivity's slow right now because my system just can't handle the increasingly complex scenes I am throwing at it). Keep the figures coming, and I'll keep trying to do stuff with them. Got some recent acquisitions I need to unzip yet and use (some newer figures, some are golden oldies made re-available).

BTW: I think it's a load of CRAP that DA allows political banners on this site. Someone who doesn't know any better could totally think the stuff is some kind of endorsement one way or the other and it's just plain lame. I come here to post art, see art, share art and not to be preached to about politics. There are places where I discuss those things, but not here. DA, to me, should be about art and entertainment, not politics. Thank you all. Rant over and out.
