November 2012 Vendor of the Month - meipe
Congratulations to meipe for being Renderosity's Vendor of the Month for November!
What can you tell us about yourself?
In my country (Italy), I work as a professional sculptor and architect. My sculptures can be found in various European private collections and in Saudi Arabia.
How long have you been involved in digital art?
For fifteen years, considering digital renderings are common in architectural work. Some years ago, I wanted to know if Poser could be used to preview figurative sculptures. I was very decieved by the anatomical inaccuracy of the commonly available figures. This is why I began to morph Victoria 4.
Can you give us any hints on what you may be currently working on?
Mainly new products in the Curves+ series. And something on my wild side...
Through the creation process, from inception to finalization of the product, what is your favorite part and why?
Inventing and building up...
Do you have any particular favorite among the products you've created?
The 'Perfect Complete'! But, this is the sum of many products.
What is currently in your digital toolset and why?
Mainly Poser, Daz Studio, ZBrush, Blender... and most of all Notepad++! I like the raw 'Matrix' approach.
Who is your favorite artist - digital or otherwise?
A. Durer. Shame he hadn't a computer. Or, maybe it was fortunate, I don't know.
What else do you enjoy doing when you're not hard at work creating great content?
Swimming in apnea in the blue depths of the Mediterranean Sea. Sailing, going by bicycle, playing adventure games with my sons.
As you have previously received the 2011 Renderosity Rookie of the Year Award, to what do you owe your continued success?
I really tried to do my very best, both with accurate morphing, complex ERC, etc. Sounds like painful work told like that, but I enjoy myself this way!
Do you have any advice for aspiring Digital Content Developers?
Give us outstanding products! Think that the digital artists deserve the very best.
Do you have any final words (any info you want to share with the community)?
Thanks to all of the community and to the staff, digital art is possible because of you!
