Ethically, I don't believe that digital artists should be publicly presenting works created with pirated or unlicensed tools, regardless of commercial potential or venue - it isn't okay for an painter to be stealing paintbrushes and paint. All my works from December 2003 on as well as this website reflect this belief. I do understand that some software can be outrageously (and sometimes unreasonably) expensive, so here are some links to open source and/or free solutions for creating and publishing digital content that I personally use nowadays instead of software I don't legally own. I urge you to support these important and impressive projects and tools.

The GIMP - Extremely powerful open source Photoshop solution.

OpenOffice - Office tools, including a Draw application and PDF export.

Blender3D - Fully featured 3D modeling and animation tool.

Proce55ing - a free programming environment for web publishable Java based applets.

nehe.gamedev.net - a free site providing probably the best way ever to learn OpenGL.

openAL- the open source 3D audio brother to OpenGL.
