Carles_P, July '02 Artist of the Month!

audre · July 10, 2002 6:50 pm

My name is Carles Piles, I was born in the town of Benifaio near the capitol city of Valencia on the Mediterranean coast of Spain. I am 32 years old and live with my loving wife Julia and our infant treasures, Alba and David. My mother tongue is Valencian, I also speak Spanish and English is well on its way, thanks to some help from my friends. Im a graphic artist, Who has been immersed in art and music since childhood. I started my art career using the traditional classic tools, Pen and Pencil on paper and progressively moving to Oil on Canvas. I temporarily wandered away from the visual arts to the musical arts for several years. Eventually to enjoy a harmonious relationship with both. At the age of 25 the transition from traditional graphics design to the computerized graphics design world was evolving rapidly. Mostly due to the impression made on me by my talented friends in the 3D Art World. After trying many 3D designing programs, I finally chose Cinema 4D for its many outstanding features, Stability and rendering speed to mention a few. Which I have enjoyed using the last 4 years. Everyday the power of Cinema 4Ds implements allows me to create and discover something new to enhance my knowledge on my artistic journey. I love working with 3D software because of the realistic creativity. My favorite piece of art is the one Im working on at the time. And why? Because I havent finished yet. I am inspired by money on the one hand. Because unlike traditional materials, computer hardware and software doesnt come cheap and they are constantly evolving. On the other hand, I love the pleasure people derive from enjoying my art. I do freelance commercial work on the side when the fee justifies the man-hours. To get the laundry out and feed, clothe and shelter my family I have a day job, which consists of artistic creativity, And All That Jazz. I love viewing the creation of other artist on the net. I love the freedom of playing creator in my fantasy world. Renderosity Render City is a safe, comfortable, friendly haven for all who enjoy visual arts and their creators. A living interactive artists laboratory. A playground of my peers. A constant inspiration. Cool stuff! Sweet! I hope you enjoy my work, as much as I have enjoyed all of yours. Thanks for your support. Gratefully, Thumb1788.jpg Carles Piles

Gracious and eloquently stated, Carles. Your work serves as inspiration for so many. Your contributions to this community and computer graphics as a valid art medium speak to your talent, devotion and inovative style of rendering. Your artwork has one of the most recognizable looks I've seen. I personally owe you a great debt as you have held my hand and walked me thru my struggles with lighting my work. Thanks so much, Carles! Best of luck in your future endeavors.
