In Memory of prodag

On July 29th, Yaov Zask, better known on Renderosity as prodag, finally succumbed to skin cancer.

Yaov was an admired and active member of the Rhino 3D forum and has been an active part of our community since 2001. He was a wonderful person who created incredible images and shared himself so genuinely with this community. He was a rare jewel.

We are deeply saddened by his passing, and at the same time we are also thankful that he is now free of the physical pain. Through his images and contributions, we will continue to keep his memory alive. The Renderosity community sends out our prayers and best wishes to Yaov’s wife and children, may they find some peace in knowing how much he was respected and loved by all.

 Yaov, you will be missed!

prodag's Renderosity Art Gallery

We welcome the Renderosity community to post their farewell wishes and/or links to images that they have created in honor of Yaov or using any of Yaov's Free Stuff contributions.

Prodag was one of the people I really really liked alot here on the Rhino forums, always trying something new and sharing with his peers and friends. Always took the time to post a word of encouragement and share insights - prodag you will be missed. If there is such a thing as reincarnation, it is my hope that you will be surrounded again by your friends and loved ones, and that they may bring you the joy and encouragement and just good feelings that you have offered so many and so often.

God bless you my friend - always

By: Eugenofrostin on 8/8/04
Mister Yoav !

I didn't know you but I know you was a great person, the traces you left in this world and your images are the proof in the Other World (the renderosity community).

Like said sirrick, your art will live on between us. And, also, I hope you will meet some great persons in Paradise, like Leonardo Da Vinci, Micheal Ange, Nicolas Poussin, Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and others (sorry if I forgot many else painters and poets in the past). Please, would you salute them for my humble part :-) ?

Well, I sincerelly hope you will find the great Happiness in your new place :-)

And my condolences for your familly. I hope they find their way of happiness.

With Respect and Love

Your humble servant

Mr Eugenofrostin

Rest in Peace Yoav.
Your art and your talent will inspire us all and remain forever in our hearts.
My thoughts are with your family.

By: FiXato on 8/8/04
Although I have not had the pleasure to meet such a fine artist myself, his work truly seems amazing, and reading all those comments, he must've been a marvellous person.
The world must carry on once again without an incredible artist which obviously inspired so much fellow-artists!
may his soul live on in all of our hearts and be an inspiration to us all!

It's so sad to lose another talented member of our community, but art, like good memories, lives on. Thank you so much for sharing your talents and creativity with us. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

By: WeeLaddie on 8/9/04
I've just had a browse of Prodag's work, as I wasn't familiar with it before. He certainly was an accomplished 3d modeller. One of his latest works "My Life" is now very poignant. I watched my father die of skin cancer three years ago - it isn't nice.
Yaov has left us with some beautiful artwork, but he will be missed by us all.

By: Teller_and_Me on 8/9/04
I am so sorry i never met him, although i knew his work, he was such a great artist. Least no one can say he didnt leave a mark here on earth.

By: Neec on 8/9/04
Yoav was an accomplished artist, but so much more. He was one of the first that I 'talked' to here online, and was always a positive force filled with encouragement. He was a great friend and a truly genuine and wonderful person.

Yoav you were the "real thing" and will be sadly missed. Rest peacefully dear friend, you battled hard and rest.


By: Tamela.J. on 8/9/04
RIP Prodag! My Condolences to his family and friends!


By: Afrodite-Ohki on 8/10/04

He made peace, now he goes onto a better place. Rest in Peace. My thoughts are with his family and friends...

By: eaglebeak on 8/11/04
Thirty years ago I was diagnosed with skin cancer. I was frightened then, but lived. I learned to take one day at a time. Obviously, Yoav did as I did. God wanted his talents with him instead of with us.

By: TomDart on 8/11/04
Like Tedz, I did not know this talented man. I wish I had, viewing the works he created. All in all, the artistry will remain and there will be one less to add to his gallery. Thanks that what is there is there. May the last entry be in the memories of those who knew gain from this artist, to weep in loss and find some joy in continuance. God Bless. TomDart.

By: Dutch_Wally on 8/12/04
In the few months that i spoke with Yoav, i learned that he was a very patienced, very helpfull man. He was a man with many talents, good craftsman.

Although I never knew Yoav or his work closely, I feel saddened by the loss of an obviously gifted artist. His artistry is now required elsewhere and shall adorn a higher place.
Rest in peace Yoav and my heartfelt sympathy goes out to your family.

I am deeply saddened by news of Prodag. I knew him as a sweet man who always took time to talk with and encourage others. He always had kind things to say.

My heartfelt condolences to his family. Please know that so many of us here feel your loss. And we too are better for having known him.
