Who is Nursoda?
his name is Frank van Rueschen, father of two extrem cool teenagers and married with the most delightful woman on this planet
36 years old, male-nurse, 1,85 meters high and mush too fat for this size
he cuts his hair by himself and he drives a 15 years old car - he wears clothing from ebay, he drinks bear, he is a smoker, his childs say he advance very conservativ views and the most delightful woman on this planet´s opinion is, that he spend to mush time with his computer
How long have you been involved in digital art?
i think it was 2002 - i bought a second hand Cinema4D 5Go version and so i became infected
What are you currently working on?
at the moment i work hard to write an interview in a foreign language and also i´m working on a new outfit for Kali - and i hope to accomplish a free stuff upload in the next few days with some stockings, sleeves and a slip figure for Kali and Kelm and there is a folder full of insubordinate , sweet and ugly little guys on my HD that wants to become out of it
What software do you use and why?
silo - its an easy straightforward modelling program without frills and furbelows
Roadkill for the maps - i like free solutions
Photoshop and from time to time gimp
Poser7 and a little bit D|S
Where do you find inspiration for your products?
i think the people around me are my favorit inspiration and every kind of art galeries, garage sales, books like "World Of Fairies" the drawings of Brian Froud are full of inspiration and they do impress me since i was 6 or 8 years old
and i live in a small town in northern germany with a fantastic nature around and you do not have to be very fanciful to see Goblins and Fairies in every shrubbery
... ok sometimes an object like a trash plastic bag inspires me - especially when i´m tired
Do you have any advice for aspiring Digital Content Developers?
dont forgett to regale your sweetheart! think free, and for creating the most impressive figures of all, you do not need a computer ;o) everything else comes alone
How has this online Community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning?
i think more than i realize - in the whole time i played with digital art, the Renderosity galeries gives an high standard to my own ambition and i see many people that worked hard to achieve, hold or outgun this standard and this is a very thrilling and fascinating running movement that entertains me more and more
Do you have any final words?
i will say thanks to all the people that like my products and many thanks to all the people that puchase it from Renderosity. I am very happy to be a part of this fantastic community and i´m very proud of this award
i hope my english is ok - i am dependent on an online dictionary
thanks a lot
Herzlichen Glückwunsch :) Schön, jemanden mit eigenständigen Poser Figuren hier als Merchant des Monats zu sehen :) Ich hoffe, Du wirst noch viele diese fantastischen Figuren machen. Congratulations :) It's very nice to see somebody as a merchant of the month who makes so unique Poser figures :) I hope you will continue to make such fantastic Characters.
Herzlichen Glückwunsh! Ich war sehr froh als ich meine geliebte Brian Froud Figuren als "lebende" 3D Figuren zu sehen bekam. :)(Ich denke mein Deutsh ist nich halb so gut als dein English :)) Congratulations! I was so happy to see my favourite Brian Froud figures came to "life" in 3D! Keep up on doing the great work! Love, Jeanne
I just love your work! Congratulations on being Vendor of the Month! Please keep making your own special types of characters. I come to check regularly to see if you have any new toys up in the store. Can't wait till the next little creature arrives! I own them all, and will continue to buy. You are so creative and thankfully unique. Congratulations!
Glückwunsch. Der Award ist mehr als verdient. Jede Figur ist besser als die vorherige. Da scheint das Potential noch lange nicht ausgeschöpft zu sein ;-). Congratulations. Although, you're not as long as other brilliant artist in this shop I think you are worth to get it right now. Stay tuned with your work. I still recognize an increase in quality from product to product ;-).
Nursoda is the best. Your work is professional grade, and your characters are truly original creations. There are a very few digital artists who are able to conceive and realize a vision in polygons and texture maps. And the poses they come with are first rate and inspired . . . Frank puts most other efforts to shame.
