sabaman - November 2004 AOM!
Who is 'sabaman'?

sabaman is a 22 year old carfreak living in the netherlands, who loves to spend his time being creative in any manner.

How long have you been rendering/doing computer graphics?

I've been in contact with 3d for about 8 years orso but I've been seriously doing it since 4 years ago, and before that ive tried some occasional 2d art on the computer, but I've really found I'm more into 3d since when it is done you can pretty much do whatever you want with it which comes pretty close to real life.

Do you have traditional art experience?

Well, I've pretty much sketched/drew/painted all my life,
went to art school in 1999 but found out that wasn't really what i was looking for............ok ok, i got kicked out.

What are you currently working on?

Right now I'm doing what I've always been doing, designing cars, hopefully to make a move pretty soon with my friend to start building a car and see what we can do from there.

I'm also doing some freelance work here and there for small studios and such.

What software/equipment do you use and why?

I use rhino3d v2.0 cause it's fast, very very precise since its nurbs based and the models made in it, if its a good model it is ready for production or concept stage, of course after a whole lot of engineering.

Several cars have been made in it too, the most familiar one probably is the saleen s7.

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

My best piece, well, to be honest, I'm pretty much never satisfied with my work, I'm always thinking I can change this or this, I've got 2 models I really like.

The kater, cause its a good design, and the nxl cause its a good model, so I still need to combine good design with a good solid model.

Who/what inspires you?

Pretty much every shape or whatsoever, i also get inspired by music or after seeing a good movie.

How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning?

Well, I've found some great artists that really show you that you're not even close to being there, so there is always somebody upping the bar, and that keeps me inspired to keep going.

Also, the rhino forum is a great community for fellow rhino people. Everything that I have learned, I've pretty much learned in there, thanks guys :)

Parting Comments / Advice to other Artists?

I've heard alot of people saying that they try to be half as good as this guy or that guy, but with that motivation you won't get anywhere, just try to be the best.

Why is there a link to Rochr's gallery instead of sabaman's under this interview?

By: cpl_hayes on 11/1/04
This guy definatly deserves the nomination, my only gripe, is I have to wait sooooo long for new stuff.

Finally! At long last, my man. :o) I have been a long time supporter, ardent fan and rabid advocate of your amazing concept cars (and the rest of everything you do). And I for one am extremely happy that you are getting well deserved recognition from your fellow artists here. Way to go, Sabino!

gefeliciteerd landgenoot!!

By: el_shadow on 11/3/04
Sabaman, who is the guy? everyone knows that saba is one of top 3 modelers in here. in what we can see in his models is that he models everything as he imagined them. it's like if he links his brain with the pc and exports the models from the brain to rhino... i could even bet that he knows rhino better than the developers of it. he not only got inpiration but he inspires people too.
who else does this like him?!
he deserves the nomination, there was time to.
congrats, saba!!
