Who is outoftouch?
Actually "outoftouch" is a little team of 3 persons from Germany, although I, Timo, am the one who stand all of Vicky's good or bad moods. ;-) To say, I'm the one who does all that Poser related stuff. ;-) Beneath Poser and Vicky, if there is a "beneath" ^^, I love playing Wii with friends, chatting, listening to music or do music on our own, together also with my two partners. I'm, actually, always a happy guy who loves to laugh.
How long have you have you been involved in digital art?
It began a long time ago, maybe 7 or 8 years back, with the first tries in texturing and also modeling objects for a computer game. Working with Poser began with my purchase of Poser 5, though I already had older versions but they did not catch my interest that much. With Poser 5 it began intensively and did not stop until yet and I guess and hope it will not stop any time. :-) It is some kind of being addicted to it.
What are you currently working on?
Oh there is a lot of stuff I'm working on... There always is not just one project I'm working on, there are tons and I love doing 1000 things altogether. Sometimes this can cause trouble LOL. One of the biggest projects I'm currently working on is a huge package for V4, together with two other friends :) I think there wasn't a project as big as this I have ever created...
What software do you use and why?
I have a lot of different applications but mainly I use Photoshop CS2 for texturing and sometimes Bodypaint 3D for seaming. For creating I actually always still use Poser 5 as I find that this is the most stable version. Don't ask me why but I like it most. But sometimes I also use Poser 7, I have Poser 6 too, when there is stuff with special shaders or just the longing for doing a very rare render for the galleries. I use UV Mapper and Bodypaint 3D for mapping, lots of different tools for Cr2 rigging and that stuff by Dimension3D and also Cinema 4D if there is a need :-)
Where do you find inspiration for your products?
I love watching fashion shows, movies, fashion magazines or just watching people on the street, also shop windows from fashion stores inspire me hugely. Or sometimes it is just something that came to my mind.
Do you have any advice for aspiring Digital Content Developers?
Please really enjoy and love what you are doing! There is nothing worse than doing something you do not like or want. Always try to do the best you can!! Just be creative :-)
