I would say vacation, but I like to think about words and what they mean.  Vacation, as in to vacate.  To leave to get away.  Here in the US we picked the wrong word.  Think about it.  We go on vacation to escape the stress of a job or whatnot and all we worry about when we go is dreading having to go back to the grind.   Other places in the world use the term holiday.  Something to look forward to.  Something special.  Going towards rather than escaping from.  So… I'm going on holiday :D

Within the hour I'll be heading out to GenCon in Indianapolis, so if anyone else is attending, let me know :)  Always fun to see old friends and meet new people :)   That's only part one of my adventure, though.  From GenCon I leave to go down to Universal Studios in Florida for five days to enjoy both new Harry Potter theme parks :)  A bit trickier, but if you're down there too, let me know :D

Anyway, my postings will pretty much drop off to nothing for the next ten days, so everyone be well and stay safe and I'll do my best to catch up on all I missed here upon my return :)
  • Mood: Cheerful

  • Playing: as much as I can for the next ten days!!!!

NICELabs's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States
Known as Niceman in certain circles. That reminds me... if you do a search for my art search under Niceman too as I'm so used to putting that in my tagline that I did it here on many pics in my gallery even though I'm going by NICELabs here.

Anyway, in the Real World I'm a farmboy nerd who enjoys CGI art (mainly work in Poser) when I'm not tending the baby calves on the farm or the classic 80s video game arcade I co-own with friends. My art is eclectic in genres ...pretty much whatever strikes my fancy. I'll do sci-fi, fantasy, modern, horror, just whatever idea pops into my head at the time. Usually though it involves nudity/adult themes. What can I say. I'm a lifelong fan of women and the female form :) If you know what Shokushu is, I'm THAT Niceman, though the Real World and other interests have kept me from being there for years.

Current Residence: the N.I.C.E. Labs facility just off shore of Shokushu Isle
Favourite genre of music: 80s but appreciate all kinds
Favourite style of art: appreciate many styles. Genres lean to Sci-fi and erotic
Operating System: Mac OSX
MP3 player of choice: iPod Touch
Wallpaper of choice: of my own creation
Favourite cartoon character: Jonny Quest circa 1960
Personal Quote: "Integrity is doing the right thing, even if no one's looking"

Commission Info

My rates are $30 for a basic portrait with limited background. Scenes involving action, complex settings and/or multiple characters generally go at a $30/hour rate where most pics fall in the 3 to 5 hour range. I of course do not charge for rendering time. You shouldn't pay for the speed of my computer (or lack thereof)... only the time I'm physically working on the artwork. Transactions via Paypal.

I like to explore genres. I won't be doing any illegal type of artwork of course, but I will do my best to capture your idea. I do refrain from doing any male gay or transsexual pics as it's not my thing and I've found that my lack of inspiration in such areas makes the pics suffer and for a commission that would mean not getting what you want.

I have an extensive 3D library so odds are I can get close to clothing, props and settings you have in mind, but if latitude is allowed I'm sure I can make up for any discrepancies by my attention to the spirit of your request.
