September 2005 AOM - Valentina

Related: None
Each month the Renderosity community votes on The Renderosity Artist Of The Month [AOM] — September’s AOM is from the Poser Gallery. We congratulate Valentina [Valentina Kallias] for her outstanding collection of Poser images.


Congratulations on being voted Poser AOM for two consecutive years, this is a first in Renderosity AOM history. I know you were reluctant to be nominated for a second year, however, the community has voted and they overwhelmingly agree that you are their choice for 2005’s Poser Artist Of The Month. How does it feel to have been awarded this honor a second time?

It feels very good to see that so many people love my work. I was surprised, and a bit scared when I learned that I had been nominated again. I am a very shy person, and any kind of public exposure makes me feel nervous, and even more shy — that is just me! However, I am very honored to know that the Renderosity community thought that much of me that they would nominate me for a second year. I really didn’t expect to be nominated, let alone win. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone.

How have your artistic techniques/style grown over the years?

I don’t know what to say. As far as I am concerned, my artistic technique seems to have stayed the same every year. I want to believe that my art evolved, but I am not always pleased with my results. Perhaps my imagination expanded and became richer, but the post work, kind of stayed the same.

I do pay more attention to lighting technique now. However, my lights are actually post work, using the dodge and burn tools over the rendered image. Also, I realized that a very important element in an image is the character's expression. You must make the Poser model look alive.

Last year, you mentioned that you enjoy photography, do you plan on posting any of you photographs to your Renderosity art gallery?

I thought about posting photography, when I accumulated a lot of photos. Yet, viewing the Renderosity Photography Gallery, and seeing so many amazing photos by other artists, makes me feel a bit shy about mine … and I still delay in posting. … but, perhaps one day I will.

Did you finish your Sci-Fi children’s book that you were creating with your sister?

No, it is not finished yet. My sister is creating original 3D models just for that book's illustrations. We want it to be 100% original; new characters, new props and backgrounds. That way we will be able to create something unique. Of course it is a hard work, and it will probably take a lot of time, but we think it's worth it.

Are you still using Poser and Paint Shop Pro for creating your images, why do you prefer Poser and PSP, and have you tried your hand at other software applications?

I still use Poser 4 and I still render my images with simple grey lights and post work. But I do my post work in Photoshop 7 now, but its basically the same.


You Make Me Feel So Damaged © Valentina [Valentina Kallias]


What do you think your best piece of work is and why?

Oh, I cannot say it is the best, but for sure the image I like most is: You Make Me Feel So Damaged. I like it because of the character’s facial expression, I think the expression makes the image! Also, The Closet, would be one of the images I am very pleased with, because it represents the usual children's fears ...which we all had ... the monsters in the closet ... the monsters under the bed.


The Closet © Valentina [Valentina Kallias]


What inspires your inner artistic muse outside the world of art … for example; what books, movies, and/or music gets your creative juices flowing?

What inspires me … are my feelings. Even darkness inspires me. But there are things that can make my imagination burst: science fiction books and movies, gothic tales, Nu Metal music, rust, abandoned places, ruins, rain. Due to the nature of my images, I mostly read horror books, and for sure I love the dark poetry of George Bacovia. I don’t always agree with all his work, as with every poet, he also has his bad poems.

Over the past year, how has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning?

Art ... I started to create more than art, I now also create products for the Renderosity MarketPlace. Soon, I will start 3D modeling, and later, maybe animation. When I first subscribed to Renderosity, I barely knew how to create a render. So, everything about art, I learned here.

Relationships ... well, I met few people who are my friends, even now, over the years. I only have a few true friends. The ones who have remained my friends, are people who are worthy of friendship. I also met my husband here ... and he happened to be the right kind of person I was looking for [soft laughter].


Vali and Hubby


Learning ... I learned that a hobby can take a lot of time and sometimes a lot of money, but it makes you happy [much laughter]. I learned that art is a relief for the soul pain, and that sharing it with other people, helps take the pain away. Expressing feelings in an image, is like a healing — and yes, part of the pain goes in the image.

Do you have any words of inspiration that you would like to share with the community?

First of all, again, I want to thank the Renderosity Community for nominating me, and to all the people who voted me and sent me “best wishes” messages.

My advice to everyone would be … make art from the heart!
God bless you all !
Vali

    You're the best!!
    Everytime I get an e-mail anouncing a new product created by you, I jump to Renderosity and spend several minutes watching your new creation. Your idea of beauty is just out of this world. Combining Philipino, Polinesian, French and Chinese facial features to create someone live Vali (my all time favourite) ist just amazing. Body balance with beautiful faces is just a modest description of your art.

    Keep the good work for many, many years.
