I have been lucky enough that the majority of my work has been accepted positively and I am asked often what software I use to create my digital artwork. I employ a number of programs to produce the layers that are then combined to create one of my finished pieces.
Which program I use at the time depends on what effect / look I am going for. Some of my work uses many layers at a time. So I might use 5 or 6 different programs to make a new piece of art.
Here is a list of the software I use the most to create my art….

And here is another Demo showing me mixing 6 finished, renders (layers) into a Finished picture.
And the finished piece…
And another demo of some post production work.
