denko - February 2005 AOM!
Who is 'denko'?

My name is Marek Denko. I'm 24 years old and I come from Slovakia. I'm studiing in Brno at Faculty of Civil Engineering.

How long have you been rendering/doing computer graphics?

This year it will have been 9 years since I started with CG. I always liked making music and CG. Last 5 years are the most active part of my CG period and I would like to devote my time to it even in future. I’m hoping that my hobby will soon change to my job.

Do you have traditional art experience?

I loved to draw when I was a kid and I even won some prices. Hovewer, I do not spend my time on drawing and painting any more, except when I need it for my own use.

What are you currently working on?

Currently I am not working on anything that would directly concern CG. Perhaps I should mention that I work on correction of book about 3dsmax. I am correting the translation into Czech language. I need to concentrate myself on finishing my diploma thesis.

What software/equipment do you use and why?

I work in 3dsmax programme. The reason is that this was the programme with which I started. Maybe if I started with something else I would be working in it until today. 3dsmax has many adventures and I feel very comfortably working with it. However I am openminded to other programmes and when I need them I would learn to use them. Until then I will stay with 3dsmax.

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

I dare not to judge this and I do not even want to. This is up to others. Personally I think that my masterpiece is still sleeping somewhere inside me :)

Why do you like to work with 3D software?

3d software gives me chance to create. Rotating, moving and deformating everything without any need or redrawing represents a great challenge for me. It is like some kind of instrument, something like paintbrush and palette in hands of old masters but in new design.

Who/what inspires you?

My inspiration comes from everywhere. I see, feel, listen....all this inspires me.

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

I use (and misuse :)) Renderosity to present myself. I think it is one of the most visited servers about CG and that is why I‘m there. Also, there are many interesting articles, tutorials, beautiful gallery etc.

Parting Comments / Advice to other Artists?

The first thing that came to my mind was to advise them to be original. But at the same time I do not think it is possible any more. So I would just recommend not to be afraid, to hold on and create. To me creating means fulfillment. That is how I feel it. I need to create.
