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.

I love the Gigli line. If you're thinking of expanding it in the future, how about a frog, gargoyle, and owl in the same style?

Hey man what did you do with all your cool Horror stuff that was on Runtime DNA? Its all gone. I remember wanting to buy some of it, then I realized it was taken down. Couldn't find it anywhere else.

Gotta say, I love your Nyhloghast.   Besides looking absolutely amazing, the available variations are really great.   I'm particularly impressed with how well the entire product is structured - very professional!    Also got the Morphing Tutorial - only part way through so far - but it gave me the hints I needed.

Thank you so much for creating the Meowl. This is something that was terribly needed and inspired me right away. It is such a cute thing and the "forgot to pull back the tongue" dial made me laugh so much...

Have a grea sunday!

Hey folks! Got some questions for y'all...

1. Name a creature you'd like to see as a Sixus1 release for Poser. Can be anything so long as it isn't a copyright held by someone. 
2. Name a topic you'd like to see a Sixus1 tutorial video cover. Tiggersprings: your magnet request is in the works...
3. Name a classic comic book character you'd like to see my take on in traditional media, not 3d. 
4. Name your favorite "odd" food. Yup. Has nothing to do with art. But I love trying all kinds of crazy foods, so... there. :)

and.... Go!

1.  Oh... Animals. A Hedgehog would be great.  I don't know if it's possible.

2. I thought I replied before on the magnet tut: You've made me very happy. :) 

I love the morph tool tutorial. I'm finding my growing skill at using it very, very handy. I still need practice, but... LOL

3. Erm... Don't follow comics much... Wolverine?

4. Odd food... Dairy? I'm allergic... :(
