3D Digital Art: Male Characters I Created

I’ve used 3D digital art apps since 2007 to create photorealistic male characters. Images have been released online continuously since then under the name of Madeira Desouza. The category of this kind of visual works is known as 3D gay erotic art. These are representative examples of my work:

Pen Name

In 1996 I began using the internet and I published web commentaries and fiction online under the name of Madeira Desouza. But most people know me and refer to me by my nickname, Woody.

I’m a citizen of the United States, born in California. My heritage is Portuguese from both my parents Edward and Evelyn Goulart.

The word madeira is Portuguese for wood. The surname Desouza is a variation of the surname Souza from my old country grandfather on my mother’s side.

In 2007 using that same pen name I branched out beyond internet writing into creating original 3D digital images for online publication.

My interest in creating a second name for myself dates back to when I was a boy. In my youth I had an irrational fear that I would turn out to be merely an ordinary man.

During journalism school, I grew to admire writers who distinguished themselves through their professional works. But, I also must confess that I developed a very strong attraction to the well-known practice of writers who use a pseudonym. I discovered in those days that Mark Twain was the pen name of Samuel Langhorne Clemens. Filtered through the perceptions of a teenage boy, that was the coolest thing I had ever come to know about the writing profession.

No surprise that Mark Twain has remained my favorite American writer of all time. Not that I think I am as good as he was or ever will be. But, I seek to be humorous like him, to tell vivid and imaginative stories like he told, and, yes, to have a memorable nom de plume like his. I created a pseudonym for myself that would sound considerably more Old World ethnic compared to my own birth name while being a name that everyone should recognize no ordinary person would ever have.

It does not really matter whether someone with a pseudonym is prominent and globally identifiable like Mark Twain or Stephen King or J.K. Rowling or Jay Z. The simple reality is that having a pseudonym is a timeworn way of differentiating yourself from everyone else.
