May 2014 Vendor of the Month - StudioArtVartanian

Related: VOM

Congratulations to StudioArtVartanian for being Renderosity's Vendor of the Month for May!

Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you've been up to. How are you doing these days?

I'm Joanna, my Rendo friends are calling me Jo. I'm spending most of my time in front of my PC, working. I enjoy the company of my friends and family, we have fun watching movies and having long dinners. I love the animals, I like to feed the stray cats and dogs, and I'm having fun doing on-line shopping :)

How long now have you been involved in digital art?

For digital illustrations, it's been about 14 years, and for Poser content, 5 years.

Can you give us some hints on what you may be currently working on?

As usual, I am working on several things, but I'm focusing on a new character and her hair...

What software is currently in your digital tool-set and why?

Blacksmith 3D suite for texturing and detailed morphing, Hexagon for modeling and morphing, Photoshop for texturing and painting. I create the most of my content in Poser Pro 2010 and Poser Pro 2014. DS 4.6 for my Daz Studio compatible products, plus many little utility programs and scripts.

Could you list any current favorites among the products you've created and tell us a bit about their creation?

My current favorite is Knights in Black Satin. We worked with my partner, lunchlady, on this project for almost a year in the background, along with our other projects. The best thing about that was, that we had all the time to see the things over and over again, until we had it in the way we imagined it to be. We've been doing the same thing with Nights in White Satin, expansion.

What are the biggest challenges you face in your work?

My biggest challenge is to complete all the projects I have started on time, and learning how to make my 3D content better and more realistic each time, using less polygons as possible.

Can you tell us a bit about your creative process, and are there any work-flow tips you might wish to provide?

I start with an idea, then I do some sketches and take notes. Next, I collect references and resources and I go on from there. You need to see many photo references even for a fantasy, fictional project, if you wish to make it realistic.

You've had the honor of Vendor Of the Month a few times previously. To what do you credit your continued success?

First, thank you all very much once again for the great honor. I think it's because I love doing this, this makes me work all day long, and feel great about it! :) When I'm working on a project, I'm trying to make it the best possible.

Do you have any new insights or advice for aspiring Digital Content Developers?

Work on projects that inspire you, and never give up on a product until you're very pleased with it. Try to think as a potential client, give the quality you seek when you are buying a product, to the products you are creating.

Do you have any final words or advice for other digital artists?

I want to express a huge thanks to the Rendo community for the support of my work and the awesome images you are posting in the galleries, and to Rendo staff and my fellow Vendor friends, for the help and support! As for a word of advice to other digital artists, just work with your heart and truly enjoy what you're creating.
