file_455531.jpgEach month the Renderosity community votes on the Renderosity Artist Of The Month [AOM] ... July's AOM is prutzworks!

We congratulate prutzworks for an outstanding collection of works in the Mojoworld Gallery!

Who is 'prutzworks' and how did you come by this member name?

Prutzworks is the nickname of Martin Roes. I'm 55, living together with girlfriend Rosalie in the Netherlands. My profession is cook.

The name is inspired by the famous Lockheed secret airplane plant: "skunkworks" and prutz means, in dutch, something like "kit bashing."

How long have you been working with computer graphics?

I have been working in CG since 1997 when I read an article about Terragen in a computer magazine.

Do you have any traditional art experience?

Painting, especially watercolor, is a hobby of mine.

What are you currently working on?

At the moment, I have no idea for a project.

What software/equipment do you use and why?

I use Terragen, Mojoword, and for postwork, Photoshop and Ulead PhotoImpact. For panorama stitching, Ulead COOL 360.

Your Renderosity gallery not only holds some fantastic Mojoworld pieces, but also great Terragen work, as well as photography. Which do you enjoy most?

I enjoy all the three artforms.

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

The render I like most is: "Magnetoshrooms #2." It reminds me of the beautiful black light postersĀ from way back in the sixties.

Who, or what, inspires you, and how do you get your ideas?

My inspiration comes mainly from desert pictures from the National Geographic Magazine and Renderosity artist Armands.

Artist of the Month is highlighting a talented Renderosity artist that has been nominated by mods and admins, and voted by the community. Recognition is given to this member for their collection of works for that year.

Since we only select one AOM per month, it is not about their works for that particular month. Instead, it is about highlighting a talented artist's works for that year, and they are recognized during that month.

Congrats Martin - I think it is 8 years back I surfed through internet, found amazing pictures by prutzworks, and was infected by computerart - Thank you Martin, you gave me heavy inspiration (I never played in your class) - without you I did not have hundreds of good hours - please never stop creating your worlds, and maybe you can infect another guy to this wonderful 'killing time'.
