My name is János Miklós, a 42 years old Hungarian with a passion for Science Fiction and Fantasy. I started drawing since childhood. In fact, I studied technical drawing at school for two years and this time I learned many things about it. I have a background in IT, creating software’s for some PHARE projects. I have also worked with Corel Draw, creating leaflets and brochures. After the projects were closed I tried to find myself something to fill my spare time, so I started to draw on paper and later build 3D models. This way I had the chance to work with some computer programs like Studio Max, Truespace, Rhinoceros, Bryce, Google SketchUp, Maya, AutoCAD, Pandromeda, Wings 3D. Creating some stuff with 3D programs it's so easy. I learned how to use Adobe Photoshop and GIMP with layers where you can move the layers like some objects in the scene. Now I'm working with Milkshape 3D. With Milkshape, I also started modding my favorite space strategy game, Star Trek Armada 2.
