Interview with Member of the Month - Kratzdistel
Tell us a little about yourself: who is kratzdistel?
Kratzdistel: I live in Germany and work in an engineering company for wind tunnels and fluid engineering. I'm not an engineer, but I really like everything with technic, software and IT (even studied IT for some semesters). One day I recognized a software named Bryce, I opened it, was very confused - and closed it. Think that's a common experience many people have with their first approach to 3D. ;)
Nevertheless, I was curious what I can create with DAZ Studio, Poser etc. After a while I wanted to create my own content, I modeled my first props in Hexagon and switched later to Blender. Since 2008 I'm using Blender now, I learned it with the help of books, DVDs, video tutorials, everything I could catch. Blender, Poser, DAZ Studio give me the possibility to be creative and to generate whatever comes in my mind - e.g. new furniture designs. I love "clean" modeling - and hope that this is reflected in my models.
how long have you been a renderosity member and what has the experience been like?
Kratzdistel: I'm a Renderosity member for more than 9 years now, first only as a shopper, later I tried to sell some of my props, but that's almost 7 years ago. Cause I do not have much spare time beside of family, job, a honorary office in a club, I cannot make props in a constant way so I decided to give away what I modeled as freebies from time to time. And I love that Renderosity offers an easy way to upload free stuff so that a great community can make a use of it.
Because my main software is Blender I open the Blender forum every time I'm at Renderosity, although I'm only a lurker. Unfortunately I'm not a very active gallery user but I know resp. follow some artists and I like all of their images
Be sure to visit Kratzdistel to see more of this fun loving artist's work and say "hello" next time you meet him in the forums!

As someone who has every Poser compatible freebie Kratzdistel has generously released, I just want to say thanks so much! I LOVE the unique angles of the chairs (I have several) and I use them quite often. They are clean, modern, unique, well crafted and have logical material zones that let me re-texture as needed to fit whatever image I am creating (though their original textures are always great too!). Thanks again for the great work and for sharing so generously. Congrats on your member of the month recognition!
I think .. going back a few years, that the first time I tried working with one of your Free offerings I was impressed with the quality and time and patience that you put into your products. They were new, fresh ideas and I loved them just as much then as I do today. Congratulations and I wish you well in all of your future endeavors.
