April's Featured Artist - gevidal

tammymc · April 13, 2001 2:50 pm

Who is gevidal? I am Guillermo Vidal, of the Argentina, I live in the city of Buenos Aires. I can read English and I understand enough, but can not write to well. I use a software of translation that doesn't sometimes translate correctly. Any error apologizes. I am 46 years of age old. I have previous artistic formation in drawing and painting. The computer was not still popular, of this doesn't make so much. I am not a dinosaur. My current work is in a parish called Christ King, in the city of Buenos Aires. I live with other two priests, I am also priest and work in children's two schools of primary and in an university of the Jesuit, with university students. How long have you have you been rendering? I have been working very slowly in 3D for six years. Bryce was always my favorite software. It is simple as a paintbrush and e has a lot of render quality. The models in general can be gotten but a good render when working is indispensable. What software do you use and why? I was attracted by several reasons at the 3D, their incredible versatility and the possibility to prove and to change the work without having to make everything again every time. Also certain sympathy with the tool. I always liked computers. What inspires you? My inspiration in the first place is the fantasies and the memories that have been fed every year by many things and a lot of people. Science fiction, movies, television, classic, paintings, memories of the town of my childhood in the field, people that I know and all that I am crossed and I like it. How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning? This community appreciated from the beginning my work and that is very valuable. To share and to know the work and the excellence of so many artists in the net gave me a lot of happiness and I cheer up a lot. Also the point of view and the observations of other artists allow to improve and to see what I cannot see. Thank you. Guillermo Vidal View gevidal's art gallery To view other AOM (click here)

Guillermo, your work in bryce is amazing. You are one of the best artists that I have seen and your subject matter is beautiful and intriguing, telling a story all of its own. Your images take people to these places for their own eyes to explore and wonder. Always in awe :)

What a nice guy you are Guilermo! - I am also surprised at your vocation!. Your work is an inspiration to us all I believe, and is probably the most original and creative on Renderosity. I love your eclectic use of meshes and models to create the familier in an alien way. A true surrealist! - Dali would have been impressed! Keep up the great work! :)

Congratulations on beautiful thought provoking and very different art. Your work reminds me a lot of Jules Verne, and it is a world unto itself. Your background and vocation are very different, and it is interesting and a joy to see that 3d artists come from all walks of life, with completely new and different ideas. Syyd

by Giovanni i am knew to 3d art and so my opinion is not as valid as many of you out there in 3d land. but i am italian and grew up soroundid with skulpture by michel angelo at the vatican in Rome. my eyes are at home with art and its dreams of the heart.having said that i think Guillermo Vidal is the artist who is one of those artist. in a world were art is a hobby only and not to be taken seriously , Guillermo Vidal is a lonely giant among many copy cat 3d artist who just cut and paste. thank you Guillermo Vidal for you are true artist, and teacher and we are just little children trieng to learn. giovanni of www.giovanni.org cioa

Guillermo, I have to confess that I didn't know your work before today, but what a pleasure it was to visit your gallery. My attempts at Bryce are so juvenile compared to your masterpieces. The image called Viewing Point has to be the best non-photographic image I have every seen on any web site. I just wonder how long does it take to create something like this? Thanks for inspiring us to go on and do better things. Cheers

You have inspired me to push myself and my digital art. Thank you for posting here. I think that we all love your work. I know that I am truly amazed with every picture you post. :)

Guillermo for my it is a talented artísta, with a great creativity, and imagination that overturns in their works of art, their designs and textures are very original, but without a doubt with a capacity of very big work. I really congratulate him and as all the members of the page I hope to always see new works in those that without a doubt will follow us surprising.

I love art in all its forms. The wonderful thing about the web is the exposure that artists get. When I check renderosity I look for artists that inspire me. I look for gevidal. Congratulations.

I am very pleased that you came to be April's artist of the month, Guillermo. You deserve it highly. Even though your work is created with a brilliant digital technique, it is - first and foremost - ART, suffused with emotion, psychology and religion. Which gives it CHARACTER. Character can make anything come alive. Even binary bitmaps. This is important for all digital artists to remember. Thank you.
