July 2006 MOM renapd | renapd, VOM
Who is renapd? I was born in Greece but always considered USA as my second home. A Napoleon High/Ohio graduate -class of 77, where I was an Exchange Student plus a few more years during my first marriage in Faurt Lauderdale,Florida. I've traveled all over the world thanks to my long career as a PA in Professional Sound but I gave all that up a couple of years ago to dedicate myself in my dream - creating full time for Poser and staying home! Addictions can be risky but I took my chances and I don't regret it! I'm happilly married for 20 years and the proud mother of five sons - but don't get fooled, I've always been the man of the house! :) People who know me well describe me as stubborn, dedicated, Mediterranean, loyal friend, always an optimist and a dreamer who easily fires up thanks to my Mediterranean tempter but too easy to forgive and forget as well! How long have you have you been involved in digital art? I became involved with digital art by accident in 1997! I downloaded a free pak of Bryce wall papers and I was fascinated by what I saw. I bought the application the very next day! But landscapes can get easily boring without people to populate your scenes..so eventually I discovered Poser 2 and I got hooked for life! :) What are you currently working on? Costumes have always been my fetish! Thanks to Thomas Hauge (thip) and his endless patience with my outrageous demands - we have created a line of RT-costumes that are classics. Right now we're in the process of bringing to life the Russian ladies that will accompany the Hussars. We have planned the clothing carefully so the outcome will cover all Eras - from Imperial peasants and aristocracy to contemporary stage lady dancers. I admit that I just can't wait to see the final part of their accessories.. the hats I've designed for poor Thomas are a true modeling challenge! But he never fails me! :) What software do you use and why? When it comes to texturing I'm an unorthodox! I hate PhotoShop and I always use Corel's Photopaint. It was the graphics application I first got involved with in the office and I've always believed that one should stick to what he knows best without mysteries in the interface! I can work in Photopaint even with my eyes closed so why give in to standards? Makes no sense to me! Besides Poser and Photopaint,UVmapper Pro and 3Dexploration are always open at the same time too as I'm impatient and I want to have a sneak preview of how the work flow goes! :) Where do you find inspiration for your products? Mostly in true Art! I love studying paintings & statues of all eras, imagine how a rich outfit like that would look in Poser. When I want to relax I just surf around galleries and museums and never walk away without half a dozen of new ideas! Do you have any advice for aspiring Digital Content Developers? I most certainly do! Be patient and never compromise to do what you think will sell well fast.. get involved in projects that you love doing! Once inspired you put your heart in your work and the best of you comes out.. that's priceless! Eventually clients will have to be blind not to notice the difference! How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning? The 'Rosity community has been my home since I got involved with Poser - I still recall the days the site was just a few purple and white pages with lots of free magical downloads! :) I met my best friend right here online in Renderosity and I was lucky enough she turned out to be a neighbor. I was privileged to meet Jim Moore, an extraordinary person till the day he died a few years ago. We never met in person but I knew his soul and I'll always recall him as one of the most incredible people I came across in life. I met my mentor Paul Hafelli who tutored me privately in almost anything I know about lights, posing and gallery images! Dozens and dozens of others that stay close to my heart up to this very date and they are True Family although we know we'll never meet! I believe that's an incredible, magical bond that can't be found in any other place but here! Do you have any final words? Sure.. I can't think of any better Birthday present than the one you've just given me guys - I was born on July 2nd! :)

I am very happy about this event. I can see your art from your promo's and every creative texture for clothing you create. The thing is... i wish i could own the clothing pack you make textures for so I can ilustrate it with your textures. I am always amazed with the creativity, dedication you put in your products... Also is a very inspirative source for other artist. You have inspired me in some personal work with your designs and creations. We have never talked but,you always have been and will be my source of admiration and inspiration :)
