December 2005 MOM orion1167 | orion1167, VOM
Who is orion1167? Oh! First ones a toughie!! "Big Smile". So go the easy questions. Orion1167 is also Christopher Wayne. Husband, and father of 5 wonderful kids. I work from my home, so I feel very fortunate to be able to be so close to my family. In addition the Market has allowed my to do what I love doing. Creating! I�m probably a bore to most standards, sitting in front of this machine day and night, but I do love to laugh. Whether the jokes on me or I�m tormenting another, I love to laugh. How long have you have you been rendering? I've been rendering in the technical term since I was as old as I can remember. Started out drawing little stick figures and moved up to bigger stick figures lol. I�ve tutored and taught figure drawing, studied fashion illustration, and cover art. Although some areas I may do well in, there are many I don�t. I�m just grateful every day that I have something I can do that I really enjoy. With Poser specific? I�ve been into the 3D scene now for nearly 3 years. As it is. What are you currently working on? I am currently working on a collaboration, and a whole new set of themes for 2006. Cant say much more :). But it�ll be fun and exciting and maybe give me a chance to actually get to know some of my customer base better. We will see. What software do you use and why? I use many of the standard graphics software packages you heard about. The common ones are PS7, Illustrator, Corel, DP3D, and recently Light wave. Until recently All the development was handled strictly for the textures area and mapping procedures. But I have been making a transition into modeling with some very good help and have had to learn many new Software packages. All I know is its aging me rapidly at times lol. Do you have any advice for getting started selling 3D work? Hum, honestly, whatever you decide to do, whatever your knack, do it the best you can. Be your own worst critic but also learn to rely on objective opinions from your peers and friends when you can get it. Study the Marketplace. See what�s selling well. Maybe you have discovered a niche. But whatever you do, and I always try and remember this, realize that every store, every successful product starts with (1) sale. Look at your fellow merchants to see what their selling. How do they consider there promotions and store front? How does your product fit into the available categories here at the RMP? Try a collaboration with another merchant. Try and be as objective about your own work as possible. This can be very difficult if not seemingly impossible at times. I have a product in my store right now that that I was sure was the best thing I�ve done to date. The concept and development alone was weeks in the making, even on the night it was released, I was sure it was a success. As it turns out, it was one my most tepid and poor-to-do releases I�ve had. I was stunned and am still sitting here trying to shape my mind so that I can learn to see it objectively as my customers would. Because ultimately, if your interested in selling something, the very basics demand that you have something that people want. Where do you find inspiration for your products? I get a lot of inspiration from reading, movies, gaming, TV, friends, and other artists. My wife helps me a ton, and if I get lost, or blocked, then I have certain remedies I try to help me get back into my theme building. Doesn't always work, but you have to try something or Ill go nuts. How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning? Renderosity has been a defining point in my career. I credit it for opening up an entire world of possibilities that would not have been available otherwise. I�ve made some super great friends, met some outrageously talented folks, and had the honor of setting up collaborations. Its help me to learn how to organize my time better, set up policies, and it hasn�t always been easy. Its opened the door for me to move into full on professional and commercial level work that would be displayed and oriented in a truly animated environment, and best of us, it allows me to stay close with my kids and wife on a day to day basis. Do you have any final words? I do. Of all the things I�ve had a chance to do here, of all the people I�ve met, there have been some very key personalities that have been largely responsible through their personal efforts. Id like to thank Clint and Debbie for their ever resilient patience, ongoing support, and bend-over-backwards attitudes. You always helped me in any way that you could, and for that I am deeply grateful. I know that if I hadn�t had you guys there to help me I may have moved on sometime ago. If I start thanking anyone else it'll start to sound like the Oscars so Ill let it be but one last thank you. If it wasn't for my customers, I wouldn't be able to do this. So thank you Most of all. Thank you for allowing me work. Happy Holidays to All!! Chris~
