Thomas Miller, is a Fine Arts graduate from East Tennessee State University. He's been doing freelance illustrations for about five years now. He is also trying to build a portfolio of 3-D animation, and hopes to get a career in that field. When Thomas works he usually starts with lots of pencil and ink drawings. After he gets the composition, basic details, and atmosphere he likes, he scans it into the computer and finishes the piece in either PhotoShop or Painter, depending on the look he wants to achieve. Thomas loves using PhotoShop and Painter because he gets the same look as traditional media in a fraction of the time... and undo's are nice to have. When he's not working he's collecting any art, or books, he can find of his favorite artists (Bill Stout, H. R. Giger, Wayne Barlowe, Robert Bateman, and, lately, Brom).He also photographs thunderstorms, and collects all things dinosaur, so he's always hunting for the newest info and art on them. In addition to the works presented here, Thomas has recently completed artwork for Tony Chandler's MotherShip Part 5 at http://www.writershood.com/.
