3Dream May '04 Merchant of the Month!

How did you get started in 3D Graphics? I started at a very young age. At 7, I already made some drawings and 3D objects using very simple programs. At that time spectrum was the most powerfull computer. How long have you been working with 3D Graphics? As I answered before I strated at a very young age but at University I learned 3D programs, such as Poser, Rhino and many others. It was the real begining because then I knew that was fascinated by those programs and by 3D art. Do you have any formal training? As I said before. I learned a lot at University and then I developed my knowlege by myself trying the programs, seeing results of my experiences. I spend lot of time learning by myself. What software do you use for product development? Basically I use Poser, Rhino3D, UV Mapper and Photoshop. How much time is required for product development? I dont establish a determinate time to finish a product. My main objective is quality, so it will take the necessary time until I consider it is as I want and like it. Can you give a brief overview of your development cycle for a new product? First I have an idea, then I start step by step and if I think it will may be a good product I give all my free time to get to the result (high quality) I imagined for it. Where does your inspiration come from when developing new products? I have so many ideas that sometimes I wish that I could be two instead of one. Do you have any advice for aspiring Digital Content Developers? Quality above of everything and love what they intend to do. How has Renderosity's on-line community played a role in regards to your products, friendships and learning? The renderosity online community plays a important role in my works reading the products reviews on my products. Some buyers advices are very important too. Renderosity forums gives me a lot of information. I have made a lot of friends in this site and I thank them for their friendship. Do you have any final words? In my country (Portugal) there are no many ways to learn all about 3D Art. I think I am the only Portuguese creating Poser software. I would like to say that I am very happy being Renderosity's May 2004 MarketPlace Merchant, but I really would like to have answered with bigger precision to the questions, since my English is not as good as I would like. Thank you to all.

I Love his art. The characters are unique in question of textures . I never saw any other artist who works so good the eyes. My favourites are Kimshara , king, Radical V3 and Adro this last is a supreme art creation it looks like an human beeing . Not to speak about his hair objects. Once some one told me that Glorious hair was too expensive and he / her would wait till it was in the warehouse ...it makes me laugh . Glorious has all is a complete anf full pacage. Congratulations to 3Dream

Jose, my sincere congratulations... I absolutely adore your Kimshara series - if I was told that I could have only one texture set/series to use for all time, it would be Kimshara. Thank you for all you create! :))
