Meet the Rising Stars from the Renderosity MarketPlace!
Those seasoned Renderosity Vendors all know that it's not easy being the 'Newbie' in the MarketPlace. Do you remember asking yourself any of these questions?
- How can I promote my products and store?
- How do I become a Top Seller?
- How do I upload to the Gallery?
- How long does the review/testing process take?

Software Preference: Modeling in Cheetah3D and FilterForge for textures.
Inspiration: Things around, especially things from the rural parts of Sweden.
Years of Experience: My first connection with 3D was with Strata Vision for Mac in 1989. Got really in to 3D when I got Cheetah3D about three years ago. I started to make 3D objects to render 2D maps for role playing games.

Software Preference: Poser & Blender
Inspiration: For my work I began to use Poser as a simulator for real-life sculpting, and ended in sculpting 3d meshes... I love all about art and nature: human and animals, trees and landscapes, architecture and sculpture. Best when the visible is the metaphor of the non-visible, the limited creations on the threshold of the infinite!
How did you find Renderosity: Wandering in the web... Renderosity's great community was always in the crossroads of my Poser searches.
Years of Experience: 12 years as an artist in the physical world: architecture, sculpture and mosaics.

Software Preference: I use a combination of software because each has it's own pros & cons. Basically, it's whatever gets the job done. It always seems to start with a doodle of the basic idea. If I'm working on a model, I fire up Carrara Pro 7 to get the basics done & then I make any special decorations, tweak, & map in Hexagon before switching back to C7Pro. For texture work, I use Paint Shop Pro X, but I hope to upgrade to Photoshop in the future. For rendering I prefer D|S3A.
Inspiration: Most of my creations are inspired by my life-long love of Ancient Egypt. Even as a kid, I was fascinated by the massive monuments, the ornate gold treasures of King Tut, and the powerful women Pharaohs like Cleopatra & Hatshepsut. I got excited every time I saw a new discovery on TV. Nothing much has changed; I still get giddy about it. My problem is I'm such a stickler about historical accuracy that it takes me a while before I'm satisfied enough with my work to call it finished. Don't think I've a one track mind though because I love creating all sorts of models & I find inspiration in many other places. I was sitting by the pond smelling my frangipani blooms and decided to start modeling the flower. I grabbed my computer, went back outside, & started modeling. It was the first organic model I ever made.
How did you find Renderosity: I was searching the internet for 3D models when I stumbled upon Renderosity & I’ve been here ever since.
Years of Experience: I've been learning my way around 3D space since 2006.
