Who is HandspanStudios?
is presently just myself ( Ingrid Gilbert ) but I hope it expands
over time to include more artists. What are you currently
I am looking to do some projects in
collaboration with other artists in the near future. I'm also
learning new programs, 3d Studio Max for one, to help expand my
line to include more props and costumes. The primary focus will
continue to be Poser characters. Why do you like 3D
3d art in general brings diverse talents together to
create a finished render. The programmer, the model(s) creator, the
texture creator and then the artist who sets up the final render.
Each part is equally necessary for the finished artwork. While some
people would argue that this is 'cheating', I consider it a
strength of the art form and I plan to model HandspanStudios as a
business in a similar way; that is taking full advantage of the
talent in this community to try to make the best possible end
products. I am looking forward to partnerships and collaborations
with other artists as this will be something new for me too.
How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your
work, relationships, and learning?
I found the 3d medium
and this community at about the same time and it was love at first
sight. I have experimented with a lot of mediums, from paint to
beads, but this is the first time I really feel at home. For one
thing I've never found the snobbery that I always encountered in
the art world here. I feel very lucky to be able to share my
artwork with all of you.
