March 2007 AOM - Thomas Weiss [beton]

Related: None
Each month the Renderosity community votes on The Renderosity Artist Of The Month [AOM] ... March's AOM is Thomas Weiss [beton]. We congratulate Thomas for his outstanding work in the Bryce Gallery!





Who is 'beton' ?

My name is Thomas Weiss. I was born 1963 in Bavaria, Germany and I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil. My first public art exhibition featured drawings that I did when I was 19.


A.M.A., the ancient machine awakes

How long have you been rendering/doing computer graphics?

Since 1999 I have been creating 3D Computer graphics. I am a member of several different Art Communities on the Web, but Renderosity was my first one and was always like a big family to me.  


(contains nudity)


What software/equipment do you use and why?

I work with Poser 4 and Bryce 6, Painter 7, and sometimes with Paintshop Pro 7. I love Painter, it is easy to handle and supports my Wacom Sketchboard perfectly.

Who/what inspires you?

Life as a whole inspires me to create my kind of art. Also, music, movies, and other artists, especially the paintings from the 19th century.

What are you currently working on?

At the moment I work on pictures for my erotic Artpage, but they are against the TOS of Renderosity. *grin*

Parting Comments ?

I would like to say thank you to you all for giving me the chance to show my work on the WEB.


Please have a further look at beton's Gallery!

Artist of the Month is highlighting a talented Renderosity artist that has been nominated by mods and admins, and voted by the community. Recognition is given to this member for their collection of works for that year.

Since we only select one AOM per month, it is not about their works for that particular month. Instead, it is about highlighting a talented artist's works for that year, and they are recognized during that month.
