August's Contributor of the Month - StefyZZ
Renderosity: Who is StefyZZ? I'm Stefania, I live in Italy, I'm 30 years old and happily married. I really love animals and all Nature in general. Since I was a child I've always had a strong predisposition for Art in general, and I started playing the piano (classical) and began to draw with pencils when I was 5 years old. And I carry with me for the rest of my life these two professions, always engaged in both the Classical Pianist profession and the Painter profession. If you were to ask me which of the two I prefer, I really wouldn't know how to answer, as I have a deep passion for them both.

Renderosity: How long have you have you been rendering?

To be perfectly honest, not very long. I started rendering in October of 2000.

Renderosity: What are you currently working on?

Since texturing is my favorite and most fun job, I'm currently working on some new texture projects.

Renderosity: What software do you use and why?

I use Poser to render my characters, and Photoshop to create the textures and to do all post production work on my images.

Renderosity: Why do you like 3D art?

I know that this will not be an original answer, but the main reason is because 3D Art gives me really much more possibilities then the traditional Art Medias, and most of all, it saves me a lot of time!

Renderosity: What inspires you?

First of all everything I see that catches my eye (or well my mind), should it be a flower, a face, an animal, a cloud, actually nothing in particular. And second, but not less important, two antipodes things : the Music and the Silence. When I say Music I also mean the sounds of the Nature as the sound of a bird, or a cricket, etc..

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

First of all with the great support and friendship of its wonderful members. There are so many really talented Artists here!! And they are all an infinite source of inspiration to me. I want to thank the entire community very much for sharing your marvellous Art and your precious friendship!!! :)

Congratulations my dear friend! I'm so proud of you. But like I said before, I KNEW you'd be a knockout from the first image I ever seen you post here. You are more than deserving of this honor. Your texture work is the best around, and you are such a warm, kind, caring person. I'm so grateful that we became friends. Now I can't wait to see the new textures you're working on *S* Enjoy your moment in the spotlight sweetie, you deserved it! *hugs* love, Deb

Hey Stefy. I love your textures, as does everyone else here. It is nice to finally see the beauty behind the beautiful work. Congrads on being choosen for the contributor of the month. You deserve it.

By: bitplayer on 8/6/01
Well, let's see, only two items available in The Marketplace (Asia and Noa) and I HAD to have them both. I guess that means you're batting 1000 with me, Stefy. (Are you familiar with that American expression?) When I worked in Germany many years ago I had some fine friends from Italy who also worked in Germany, and today I have a very good friend from Italy who lives here in the USA, so perhaps I also have some particular affection for Italians. Keep up the excellent work!

By: Stormi on 8/6/01

What a beautiful name! Stefania, and you are as pretty as you are nice :) I am happy to see you recognized for your talent, as I do love your work. You have many talents, I can see. I also play the organ, and know the passion of your music to you. Congratulations on this honor for you!

By: Curio on 8/7/01
It's nice to read all about you since I only just saw your work recently.. (remember the goatee incident? lol!) Your work is truly excellent! - I will be looking out for more!

By: laetia on 8/7/01
Congratulations!! :o) Your work is so incredible, you truly deserve this honor! I have hardly ever seen anyone that gives so much attention to detail - that's why your textures are the best!

By: Hellmark on 8/8/01
I agree with trog

By: GoldHorde on 8/8/01
Sorry I couldn't catch you sooner Stef - my wife is currently touring from the US and will be in Milan FRI, Rome SAT-SUN, Florence MON, and Venice TUES. Dang, she could have dropped by to pick up a CD or two.

By: BobbyB on 8/9/01
You'd think that as a group we'd be a little less gullible. We invent the people in the cyberwold yet we're all taken in by a picture of a model from the real world. One thing is true, the real SteffyZZ does great work, but for some reason I don't think she or he even plays the piano.

By: Morris on 8/9/01
Congratulations you beautiful lady you! You are such an inspiration and deserve all the praise you recieve!

By: odinson on 8/9/01
Truly a well deserved honor. Your creations are an inspiration to us all. I am envious of your wonderful talent! ;o)
You have a marvelous gift, thank you for sharing it with us! Keep the treats coming!

By: mondoxjake on 8/16/01
I have always admired the beauty of your work, and now seeing how much beauty there is in the creator will make me appreciate more. You are a fine artist and a very beautiful lady, good luck...and keep up the fine works.

By: sparrowheart on 8/16/01
Stefy, your textures are nothing less than revolutionary. There is something almost classical about them. They have that same kind of timeless beauty that works of fine art hanging in museums do. (If Botticelli were alive now, maybe he would have envisioned Noa.) Your vision raises Poser to a whole new level, in my opinion. *warmest hugs* Kimberly

By: mgarramone on 8/19/01
ciao stefania, mi piacerebbe scambiare 4 chiacchiere con te riguardo poser e vorrei farti vedere alcuni lavori. Ti è possibile? Spero mi richiamerai in e-mail ,trovare un italiana è veramente bello...e finalmente potrei parlare un pò di questo meraviglioso programma.
Aspetto tue notizie.

You are sexy as hell.....

By: movida on 8/26/01
Hi Stefy :)

Love your work and have 1 question. I'm assuming you're using a ditigal camera...what focal length lens are you using?

Just curious

By: Newt on 8/28/01
Wonderful work Stefy! I particularly like your Edo texture, and I appreciate that you look out for the Mac people out there. ;)

I have a question sparked by the last post, from movida ... do you have any suggestions on techniques for making photorealistic textures? Have you thought about making a FAQ on the subject?

Your work is so wonderful and an inspiration.

By: lollo on 8/29/01
Difficile trovare le parole per dare il giusto valore ai tuoi lavori. Nelle mani hai la sensibilità dei colori e del realismo. Credo tu possa avere un grande futuro nel campo 3d. Se hai piacere che ne parliamo basta che ci mettiamo in contatto.
Credoo tu abbia una personalità ed una vita molto serene. Complimenti

By: RedSonja on 9/1/01
Congratulations Stefania!! I love Edo and Asia, they are amazing. You do a wonderfull work with your textures. Would like to know like movida and Newt asked before, if you want to make a tutorial or something like this to learn a little bit more.
Tantissimi complimenti e un baccio
