Just found Genetica a couple of days ago. I was astonished with how wonderfully easy Genetica first appears to be to use to get very beautiful and professional texture/art. I say appears because I haven't spent enough time to know just what goes into making the Genetica texture images I've been looking at. I'm also impressed by how cordial the tone of conversation is in the forums. I hope to get to know the members over the years, and am excited to see how things progress!
A bit about myself. I'm a software engineer by trade. So I spend a great deal of time being an analytical artist. But not much time creating visual art. I've recently gotten into learning multi platform development, with a focus on educational titles and games. I'm training myself to be an artist while I learn how to work with the game engine I've chosen for cross platform development. As I better learn this type of development I'd love to share my work with the community to get feedback and constructive criticism.
Hope to talk with you soon!
