About Tiffanie Gray

Tiffanie is known as Dakorillon and Immortal Moments Art to the art world on the web. She has been selling at Renderosity and HiveWire3D since 2016. She has been using PD Howler (known as Project Dogwaffle), since version 1.1a in 2001. She originally started using PD Howler since it’s a natural fit for artists that have a traditional background – and so began learning it with glee! She now uses Howler for nearly everything to do with digital art and content creation. Since 3D artwork is becoming an indispensable tool in her box of tricks, she is happy that Howler still works so well with these new tools.

All of her art experience is self taught, she read books or took small workshops to learn traditional art. Howler, then Daz Studio, Poser, Hexagon and other art programs she has added were by the the same method. She primarily focuses on fantasy and science fiction, but also creates still lifes, landscapes and portraits. She also uses her images in book cover designs and web design.

Tiffanie also is a community champion at the Digital Art Live STUDIO forum and you’ll see her sometimes as a teaching assistant in some of our coaching groups.
