Q: How did you get started in 3D Graphics? I began 3DCG, in order to draw the illustration of my novel. But 3DCG occupies the center of my thinking now. Almost all tales have been lost from my brain. I had the plan to make a game before. But since there were many insufficient things for 3DCG materials, it suffered a setback on the way. Therefore, I decided to make 3DCG materials in order to make the library in which a reference is possible always. 3DCG is the work which time requires very much. Gradually, I began to think it required to distribute materials in order to make people mitigate waste of the time. Q: How long have you been working with 3D Graphics? It is three years ago that I began 3DCG completely. I was enjoying POV-Ray before it. But I was not able to make a work from it freely. Now, I resign former work and am concentrating on 3DCG work. Q: Do you have any formal training? No. But I studied the great artists' work. I think that it is more useful than formal training. Q: What software do you use to develop your products?
  • Metasequoia(Modeling)
  • Photoshop
  • Cr2Builder (by kim99)
Q: How much time is required for product development? It changes sharply with each work. I am always advancing the individual project of dozens in parallel. MayaDoll spent one years or more. Moreover, the Head portion of AnimeDoll having spent half a year in examining the polygon structure that MT can work well. Q: Do you have any advice on how to get started selling 3D Products? There is still no qualification on which I advise people. It is because I still worry. I want to make 3DCG materials for me. But it may differ from what other people want. I always worry about which should be aimed at. Q: Where does your inspiration come from when developing new products? I rarely appreciate Anime, Manga, and Game of Japan. But I may be influenced by them. Q: How has Renderosity's on-line community played a role in regards to your products, friendships and learning? Renderosity is like "Home" in my 3DCG life. Since I cannot use English well, I only admire chiefly. Q: Do you have any final words? I do my best from now on. Thank you.

MayaX, Congratulations, I have been viewing the birth of the MayaDoll project with interest. I think that you have tapped a huge market here, and that it is ready for you to develop! I especially like the combination of freebies, cross-collaboration with others, and low-price market products. Good luck DOgsbody

What can we say other than this is the man who's hair probably apears on more renders than anyone else. Well done, you are a true corner stone of the worldwide poser community. (By the way the Anime Doll is superb!)
