ToysoldierThor's Profile Picture
Toysoldier Thor
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
I am Toysoldier Thor. This is the name I go by within the 3D virtual world of SecondLife and even throughout the online communities that I participate in.

SecondLife is an amazing huge virtual world with 10's of thousands of lands and millions of residents. You exist as an avatar. From this world I take photographs of the amazing 3D creations around me. These photographs are not unlike photographs in real life where camera angles and lighting and all those aspects must be taken into consideration. Then I create photo art from these raw images.

I have also expanded my recent addiction of creating art (since April 2010 spawned in SL) to experiment with Real Life photography, 3D art, and mixed media art. As you see from my gallery, I have gotten into everything. I love to learn within each type of art.


Bronze Casting of SHATTERED by ToysoldierThor
Bronze Casting of SHATTERED
This is my 2nd bronze casting project of my digital 3D sculpture called SHATTERED.  It is a limited-edition casting of 20 numbered solid bronze statues I have commissioned to a metal art foundry.  My first casting of only 13 editions sold out.  This casting will be the last from this mold.

If this emotionally charged statue interests you and you wish to own one of these editions, please click the link below for details and to submit your order of one (expected to be completed by end of November 2015)...…

I created SHATTERED as a virtual world 3D statue in SecondLife where it is sold as art in this world.  I have also created a respective 2D wall art of Shattered using the statue as the main subject.  I sell this as a canvas.  Here is a link to it in DA...

Night at Fogbound by ToysoldierThor
Night at Fogbound

Last night I was winding down my night at a place I really enjoy decompressing - Fogbound BLUES.

I haven't done a Secret Photoshoot in a while but sorry I couldn't help myself last night. This stranger was sitting in a stool next to me.. very attractive avi. I had to capture the scene somehow. And wow... I even included myself as a subject... it added to the ambiance / mood of the photo I wanted to capture. "Night at Fogbound".

Riviera Maya 3 - Cote Attack
This is a family or pack of Cote that came out of the forest to our hotel patio wall when they found out we had a pear.  LOL we did not see or hear any sign of them until we threw a small piece of pear to this other lonely animal.  They came up and put their hands up and grunted - wanted more!  lol
Riviera Maya 2 - Splash by ToysoldierThor
Riviera Maya 2 - Splash
During out Jan 2015 vacation in the Mayan Riviera, one day was very windy and the ocean waves were rough.  I wanted to catch this anger of the seas and the splashes hitting the shoreline.  This one caught the spray.
Riviera Maya 1 by ToysoldierThor
Riviera Maya 1
In January 2015 I went on a Mayan Riviera vacation.  It was amazing.  Took several photos while there.  Just one of a few I liked and wanted to show.

Yesterday I got a surprising email from the D.A. Administrator congratulating me for making a sale of one of my artworks to a real live art loving customer of D.A.  This might not be big news for some Deviants as they are long time professional seasoned artist that actually make some or all of their living on selling their art.  But.....

For me, this announcement was a milestone!  Next week I celebrate my 3rd year of being a Deviant and this sale that happened on May 17, 2013 and was finalized yesterday is MY FIRST EVER DA ARTWORK SALE!

So now you are asking... What was the artwork that was bought.  It took me time to find the actual transaction details on the site (not easy to find), but the sale happened May 17th and it was a 24" x 36" print of my CHICAGO BLUEPRINT Photo manipulation.  I don't know if it was a print, or canvas or stretched / non-stretched.  It would be nice if D.A. would provide more details - even generally where the customer was from (not specifically but at least the country/city).

Here is the Deviation that was bought...
Chicago Blueprint by ToysoldierThor

Considering it was such a large print of the image (24x36), I was a bit concerned that the max resolution of the image would be good enough at the calculated 125DPI.  For my own real life art website I use a minimum of 200DPI.  But I know a lot of printers will use DPIs at or even below 100.  Since D.A. calculates the DPI and determines the maximum printable size, I feel comfortable it must be good enough to meet D.A.'s standards.

Anyway.... I am a happy clam about this!  And if you are the customer that bought this artwork, thank you very much for being my first ever D.A. Art Sale!  If you feel comfortable doing so I would love to know if you were happy with your print that you received from D.A.
