Who is Pretty3D?
I don't have a clue who Pretty3D is. :)
How long have you have you been involved in digital art?
I've been involved in digital art since 2000.
What are you currently working on?
I'm working on an expansion pack for one of my previous products. I couldn't find more time to work on 3D products in 2008 but I'm planning to implement many projects in 2009. Many of them will be V4 outfits as usual but we're also thinking, my partner Mytilus and myself, to make a main character for M4. We're of course also planning to make some outfits for this main M4 character.
What software do you use and why?
I create my products in Poser, 3D Studio Max: an indispensable software for me; I've used many modelling programs but I cannot give up 3DS and of course Adobe Photoshop. It's the the most popular tool for digital developers. It makes it easy to prepare textures and promos. Notepad++ is in the 4th place.. If you want to have totalcontrols and get definite results in poser files, you must work with codes. You cannot get these definite results with any tool without notepad. Let's not forget Winamp of course, another really important tool for me. How can an artist be creative without music? ;)
Where do you find inspiration for your products?
Mainly PC games and movies; these are the principal sources of inspiration for me.
Do you have any advice for aspiring Digital Content Developers?
If digital art interests you and you have the required background and abilities don't waste your time preparing products and trying to sell them. We're doing it for you so just purchase our products and use them. :D Of course I'm joking. If you're interested in becoming a 3d modeller, create your own original inspirations and you can be really successful. If you duplicate somebody else's, you 'll never be successful.
How has this online Community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning?
I can say that my digital life began with Renderosity and it has allowed me to meet many people contributing to the the improvement of myself.
Do you have any final words?
I want to thank to my customers for choosing my products and also thanks to my friends for their support. I appreciate my partner Mytilus for sharing the same destiny with me and also thanks to the Renderosity family for brokering me.;) I also want to thank somebody else who's not in the team anymore: Clint Hawkins?. We miss you Clint!
I wish everyone a great year with peace and love. Happy new year all!
