Or rather hang around the periphery of and watch.

In my usual fashion after dropping in to leave a boring "wow" type comment, I went through the rest of the person's gallery and then watched them.

See you can do cool stuff with Poser and DAZ, it's not just for the most boring porn with the most terrible lighting (which is most of what I used to see when I dared poke my head into the 3d gallery of dA).

It's nice to have inspiration, even if it does often make me feel incompetent.
