Above shot is "Autoportrait with miror sculpture" .....
I have remove all the 250 pictures of my gallery in december 2007, i thought it was necessary to upload something new. But all the photographies are there : http://www.mhyrdin.fr and here : http://3d.mhyrdin.fr for CG pictures !
I'm a retired professor of infographic 2D & 3D methods at university and high school of fine arts in the french town BREST. For my job i must try many different softs, so i have used some since their very first versions like 3DSMax since 3ds (DOS mode), Photoshop since 1.0 (1990) and Illustrator since Illustrator 88 (1988) and so on ... I have had also to teach the basis of numeric photography.
My real name is Dominique Marques, i'm 62 years old, maried since 1974 with Suzanne, i encountered in 1969. We have two maried sons three grandsons and a pretty granddaugther since may 27 2010. After studies of natural sciences (that's the french terms used for animals, plants and geology) and computer science, I begin to work on 3D simulation in 1971. One of my hobbies is photography perhaps because my grandfather offered me my first camera for my eighth birthday !
With my pictures, i contribute regularly to exhibitions about biodiversity but now, i have time enough to come back on Renderosity.
Here you can look at some other pictures that i've not postes on RR
