Angelmoon - December '02 Merchant Of The Month

ClintH · December 2, 2002 10:17 am

How did you get started in 3D art? It was a long way of starting creating in 3D- Long time before (5 years) i didn`t liked images rendered in Bryce or other 3D-programs. It still looked not real. I was on a trip making homepages and learned it only with a book and the text-editor. So I created webpages and was really exciting, looking for the american people, who created the best webdesign, I`ve ever seen. I could not find it here in Germany. So I was searching for the tools from the webcreators ressources and tried it out again and again, whatever I wanted to find out how it works. Some day I visited a great graphic-site - of course an american site- and was wondering, how the design was made with. So I did, what I always do: I asked the designer for the tools and programs - and so I met POSER at first time I load the testversion, played for a while- but couldn`t find much fun. So I took my eyes on webdesign again. But after a short time, I wanted to create my own images with beauty women with lovely poses for my site and so I gave Poser another chance- although it was THE CHANCE for me, for my fantasies. I bought it and some items and with a lot of freestuff, I could see how it works. Some day it was not enough and I wanted to find out, if I could create some things, that people could like. I remember the first time: I was painting a flower on a free-stuff-bodytexture and load it in Poser- I was really happy about my success to see, what i have I study the way of texturing with the templates, but I needed big 6 month for my first Vicky-Texture and tons of half body-textures and head-textures and gigs of images , till I was satisfied with the result. Whenever I saw a little thing, that I could make it better, I started again. So this was LUNA- and she is still my best model for me, because it means much to me. What software do you use and why? Poser- of course! At most Poser 4, because I need more time, trying Poser 5 , I use Photoshop and PI8- and my minds :) my favorite program. Any advice for getting started in selling 3D work? I can only speak for myself: It is a theme of my life: I only can do something good, if it`s fun- and if I like it. Never do anything, without passion - Everything I do, I give my best- always- From the heart into the work- that`s my theme.Nothing is impossible to do- So don`t thinking about: Just start! Nothing is stronger, than an idea whose time has come. Where do you find inspiration for your products? Everywhere, books, films, my own fantasies and discussions with my friends. How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning? Long time, I felt apart - just a user :), but with my creations I found some really good friends here. Although my englisch is not the best, it`s not the language-problem to contact the people. I met a lot different people here, but at most the real real real human and good-feeling-people. Renderosity has a great influence on my life in good times and in bad times :) Especially Rick and Loredana for beeing always with me. I would not be here, without the great artist at Rendero- I learned a lot of techniques and much *HOW TO* . The community is living with the soul of the artists- BECAUSE: there is space enough for everyone! For all the peoples, who bought my creations- ( I never thought some one would do) , for all my friends I have found here, for all the good words they found for me, for all the trust into my person, for all good reasons or questions they contact me: I have to thank you all- of course the great testers and the people around Renderosity - and Clint, too :) , to be the merchant of this month- To be happy before Christmas :))) Please forgive me my english- But this cannot stop me to change my minds with you. Wishing all health at most...and harmony- Only a smile let`s the world spinning araound :)) Thanx, Elke Preuschoff /Angelmoon- Germany

Elke, I have been a fan since Luna first came out. I like your whimsical, creative work, especially with the body painting. I have especially enjoyed getting to know YOU, the real you, through your art, letters, and creative products. Hope you'll keep producing them for a long, long time, and I wish you all the best. oh, congratulation, and you really deserve this, my friend. Linda White

Hi meine liebe Elke, ich gratuliere Dir auch recht herzlich zu diesem Erfolg. Ich hab mich wahnsinnig darer gefreut als ich den Newsletter bekam und sah, meine Freundin Elke ist der beste Verkfer im Dezember. WOW!!! Ich umarme Dich ganz lieb jubelfreu. Das Einzige was nicht so ganz stimmt ist halt das mit den deutschen Pages. He Du... mach uns mal nich so schlecht. Sonntag ist mein neues Design Online, schau dann mal und sag Deine Meinung ob es wirklich soooo schlecht ist ;-) Knuddels von Peti

hallo noch mal an meine deutschen freunde: natlich meinte ich das mit den webpages, so wie ich es beschrieben habe: als ich anfing war es so, daes nicht viele gute deutsche seiten gab- und ich kann nur f mich sprechen :) natlich gibt es mittlerweile ausnahmen, aber was ich sage, meine ich auch so :) - ich sagte ja nicht es ge (mittlerweile) nichts an guten deutschen websites ;) und ich kann nur das schreiben, was ich auch meine- nicht immer passend, aber ist halt so :) danke noch einmal an alle liebe grse !

hallo Ihr Lieben ;) ich finde ein wenig mehr Toleranz kann nicht schaden - ich sage IMMER, was ich denke und brauche keine sselnde Worte ;) schlieich habe ich den Erfolg bereits - und was ich sage, meine ich so. Schade, daes mal wieder sture Deutsche sind, die manch Dinge nicht akzeptieren knen. Es gibt gutes Webdesign- auch hier- allerdings gegener America reicht es nicht heran- das hat auch mit meinen perslichen Seiten zu tun: die sind wie gesagt: perslich und sollen auch nur mir gefallen- erlaubt ist was geflt - er Geschmack lt sich wie immer nicht streiten ;) Etwas mehr Gelassenheit frt immer zu einem besseren Gefl ;) auch hier. Alles Liebe, denen die mir Glk gewscht haben und mehr- Elke
