|Each month we showcase a Renderosity Free Stuff Artist,
in appreciation for their thoughtfulness, and countless hours spent
creating free items for the Renderosity community. This month we
bring you a bonus interview, as we revisit Lisbeth Jakobsen, better
know to her Renderosity fellow artists as ernyoka1 and
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? I'm a forty-year-old Danish woman. Currently obsessed with all things concerning Alan Rickman who is Snape and Harry Potter in general. Something that reflects in most of my newer renders, as well as some of my models. I'm married, with two kids, aged 10 and 15. I also have three cats. How did you get started in Poser? I started out in Bryce, around 1999 or early 2000 originally in an attempt to recreate Star Trek scenes and alien planets. Soon after I found that I had a dire need for humans to fill my pictures, and since at that time it was all MetaCreations, I found Poser. That was a long before I really got online, so at the time I didn't know the existence of Renderosity. That also meant that at first, Poser wasn't the addiction to me that it later became. After about two-years I got a new computer, and while re-installing my stack of software, I "rediscovered" Poser. At that time I was lucky enough to also find Renderosity and its wealth of free stuff and this time I got thoroughly hooked. What version of Poser do you use and why do you like it best? I started with Poser 4, then got Pro Pack, Poser 5 and now Poser 6. I LOVE Poser 6. I liked Poser 5 as well because I've always been a sucker for shiny stuff and reflections, something that until then was only possible in Bryce. How did you get started in Modeling? I can't quite remember anymore, I created some things in Bryce, but of course they weren't exportable, so for a long time it was mostly pipes and the like for the Star Trek renders. Luckily most of those have disappeared into oblivion, the few I still makes me cringe. Your items are unique but at the same time they are the common everyday items that we often need to complete an image. How do you decide what item to model? Well, I guess it's a little of several reasons actually. One is my love of making things that are unique. Making trash is funny because it's such a neglected area, and it really is needed if you want to create realistic renders. There's trash everywhere!

Congratulations on making it here on Front Page, you really deserved this honour ! The community wouldn't be the same without your kind and generous support. Thank you very much Trekkie for all the wonderful stuff you did for us - especially for absolutely awesome HM Hamster ! Your morphing sheet makes great ground plane so I'm using that frequently too, as many other of your freebies. Keep them coming and may Snape be with you :D
Really like how you make the sort of stuff everybody needs but nobody else would think of actually making. You're really one of the few that realized how people produce a lot of litter, or how even Poser digital people sometimes might express a need to eat. Thank you and keep up the good work.
Oh, TrekkieGrrrl, almost a month late. Well, I had to say thank you so very much to the queen of props. Now, as I read this wonderful article, I find you and I both like Alan Richman. Oh, he is quite the handsome man in "Sense and Sensibility." I am the one who purchased Alexa 2 because I loved Alexa 1 on your website and told you about it. Hugs to you!!
