March 2007 AOM - Thomas Weiss [beton]

March 4, 2007 6:51 pm

Each month the Renderosity community votes on The Renderosity Artist Of The Month [AOM] ... March's AOM is Thomas Weiss [beton]. We congratulate Thomas for his outstanding work in the Bryce Gallery!

 

 

 


 

Who is 'beton' ?

My name is Thomas Weiss. I was born 1963 in Bavaria, Germany and I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil. My first public art exhibition featured drawings that I did when I was 19.

How long have you been rendering/doing computer graphics?

Since 1999 I have been creating 3D Computer graphics. I am a member of several different Art Communities on the Web, but Renderosity was my first one and was always like a big family to me.

What software/equipment do you use and why?

I work with Poser 4 and Bryce 6, Painter 7, and sometimes with Paintshop Pro 7. I love Painter, it is easy to handle and supports my Wacom Sketchboard perfectly.

Who/what inspires you?

Life as a whole inspires me to create my kind of art. Also, music, movies, and other artists, especially the paintings from the 19th century.

What are you currently working on?

At the moment I work on pictures for my erotic Artpage, but they are against the TOS of Renderosity. *grin*

Parting Comments ?

I would like to say thank you to you all for giving me the chance to show my work on the WEB.

 

Please have a further look at beton's Gallery!

Be sure to visit the Renderosity Bryce Gallery, and also pay a visit to the Renderosity Bryce Forum!
