October's Artist of the Month - trevor3000
Who is trevor3000?

Trevor3000 is a son, a brother, a husband, a father, a friend, a Christian, a patriot and soldier, a student, a teacher a PSP Moderator and a community member here at Renderosity (not necessarily in that order).

How long have you been rendering?

To be honest with you I really don't recall. I began with Bryce 2 or 3, Poser 1 and 3D Studio 2 I believe. I remember thinking Poser 1 was the best thing since sliced bread because it enabled us to create a human body. And what a shock it was going from Poser 1 to Poser 4!

What are you currently working on?

Presently, I am waiting to ship overseas to serve my country in the military. Prior to the events of September 11, 2001 I intended to do some special projects with some friends here at Renderosity and I hope we will still be able to do these when I return. Also, I want to complete some doctoral and masters work.

What software do I use and why?

Entirely too many to list. And I suspect because I have been playing with computers since I was 10 years old and I am now 31. Many of the applications I use I have chosen because I have beta tested them and decided I preferred one as opposed to another.

When I program/teach, I have software that enables me to work in the C languages, Visual Basic, Cold Fusion and Java more easily.

When I am web authoring/teaching, I use Dreamweaver and Homesite for HTML, Fireworks, Flash, Authorware, Director/Shockwave Studio and Illustrator.

For digital art/teaching, I use PSP7, Photoshop/Illustrator/After Effects bundle, Corel Graphics Suite, Painter, PhotoImpact. And too many filters/plugins to list. And of course Poser 4 with ProPack and Bryce 4 and 5.

Why do you like 3d art?

One of my favorite hobbies is roaming the galleries here at Renderosity and looking at all the various artists' works. It amazes me how so many different images can come from the same programs.
Digital art programs can afford us not only another outlet for creativity but also another medium with which we can express that creativity.

What inspires you?

God, family, and friends mostly. Music, art, literature, historical and fictional events. And the simple things in life. Most recently many of us have been inspired (I believe) by the patriotism, heroism, and the unbelievable kindness, support and encouragement of all our friends worldwide.

How has Renderosity's online community enhanced your work, relationships, and learning?

I remember it took me awhile to build up the courage to post any images or comment on images by others here. I was seeing all these different artists' works and thinking wow, these are really excellent! I remember how much encouraging comments meant to me from my first friends here:
Lorraine, Syyd, Ingrid Gilbert (HandspanStudios), Tammy and Kennect.

As with any good community there are alot of very nice folks who are willing to say a kind word and offer and helping hand, and that is what I have found here at Renderosity. As O'Henry once wrote, everyone is worth knowing.

I would like to thank everyone and in conclusion *and this is a shameless plug for the PSP Forum* feel free to drop by and visit us in the PSP Forum anytime. Pull up a chair, kick off your shoes and make yourself at home :)

By: Giana on 10/2/01
Congrats, Trevor! I remember joining R'sity, feeling nervous about commenting upon other's works, and heaps terrified to post anything of my own, and you made me feel so welcomed through your words of encouragement. I don't think I ever properly thanked you for that ~ Thank you.. And thank you for giving so much of your time to all of us here upon the site. Your art is always thought-provoking and evocative. Good to see you up here, and I hold best wishes for all your endeavours!

By: Brandi on 10/2/01

Congrats Trevor. You certainly deserve aom.

By: Syyd on 10/3/01
Let me say first, congratulations on this honor and for your fine work, but I must talk also about humanitarian effort on your part to encourage others, to be a friend, to listen, to offer advice, to be such a valid and caring community member and moderator. Kevin is right when he says you are an admirable man and that you will be positive force wherever you end up serving. Trevor we could not wish more happiness for you and your lovely family. Good luck friend, you are in our thoughts, and also, keep rendering!

By: Daffy34 on 10/3/01
Congrats Trevor! :)
I know that you have commented on MANY of my images and it's been very helpful. I'll have to make an effort to return the favor :).

By: Ironbear on 10/3/01
Congratulations, Trev.

By: dancineyes on 10/3/01

Congrats! As you know I'm new but you have been so kind to make sure I feel at home here. I thank you for that. Your kind comments have meant a lot to me, as no one around me knows much about this kind of art. I never thought I would ever say the word ART and refer to myself in the same sentence...as someone who can't draw or paint, I think that is very comical! :) Anyway I just wanted to say Thank you and that is was nice learning a little about your life! Dancineyes

By: johnnydnh on 10/3/01
Congratulations Trevor!
It is well deserved.

By: neurocyber on 10/3/01
Your a great person and I'm glad your a part of this Renderocity community. You even took time to give a silly goof like me some encouragement when I posted a few images here. It's great to see you get this interview! :)

By: picky on 10/3/01
My congratulations Trevor! All the best of luck to you! :)

By: robotalk on 10/3/01

By: Fyrene on 10/4/01
Way to go, Trev! Congrats to you! We will all be missing you in the PSP forum when you do have to leave, and will be looking forward to your return. The family there will all be thinking of you and our hopes and prayers will be with you. *hugz*

By: sinsister on 10/4/01
Just another pat on the back for you :)
It took me months to finally start posting here too because I never thought that ne of my work was good enough and you've been someone that's always given me some great encouragement. I'd just like to take the opportunity to thank you for your kind words :)



By: thelazyone on 10/4/01
congratulations and well deserved too.

By: PattyK on 10/4/01
Trev: as my first teacher, I can only say how proud I am to see you receive this honor. through the years you have been a friend, teacher and confidante and this is well deserved. You are in my prayers and hope that is you are called, you will return safely and soon.

By: GASTROPOD on 10/4/01
It's difficult to think of anything to say that hasn't already been said by everyone else much better than I could. But you certainly deserve it, considering you have to tolerate my stupid sense of humour.
Thanks for carrying on the encouragement you've given to other people that you got when you first first joined (I think that makes sense).
Gary 8-)
P.S. I'll let you have your shoes back now.

By: holyforest on 10/4/01
Congratulations, you are a formidable winner.

By: emorin on 10/4/01
It is wonderful to finally meet the man behind the beautiful creations and who always has a kind word for those who post their work here. Be Blessed in all that you do. Ellie

By: HandspanStudios on 10/4/01
I'm very happy to see you get AOM. In addition to being a wonderful artist you're also one of the nicest people I've met here.
Not only am I confident you'll serve your country well, frankly I wish they'd put you in charge of the whole thing, maybe then I could get some sleep ;-).

By: Angel Michael on 10/5/01
Congratulations on you award. I knew when I voted for you that you were a sure bet, especially after seeing the totals on the voting. You've been a great inspiration to me with your constant recognition of my own works, and I couldn't think of a more deserving person for this award.
Again, congratulations!
Angel Michael.

By: judith on 10/5/01
Wow! A face for the nice person who always has a compliment! Congrats on AOM, it's very well-deserved!

I thank you so much for all the help you have given me here since I decided to actually put my stuff up for view, the encouragement and suggestions have made me a better artist. A big thank you hug is due!! Adding a token shoe to the pile.
