Who is 'sabaman'?
sabaman is a 22 year old carfreak living
in the netherlands, who loves to spend his time being creative in
any manner. How long have you been rendering/doing computer
I've been in contact with 3d for about 8 years orso
but I've been seriously doing it since 4 years ago, and before that
ive tried some occasional 2d art on the computer, but I've really
found I'm more into 3d since when it is done you can pretty much do
whatever you want with it which comes pretty close to real life.
Do you have traditional art experience?
Well, I've pretty
much sketched/drew/painted all my life, went to art school in 1999
but found out that wasn't really what i was looking
for............ok ok, i got kicked out. What are you currently
Right now I'm doing what I've always been doing,
designing cars, hopefully to make a move pretty soon with my friend
to start building a car and see what we can do from there. I'm also
doing some freelance work here and there for small studios and
such. What software/equipment do you use and why?
rhino3d v2.0 cause it's fast, very very precise since its nurbs
based and the models made in it, if its a good model it is ready
for production or concept stage, of course after a whole lot of
engineering. Several cars have been made in it too, the most
familiar one probably is the saleen s7. What do you think your
best piece of work is and why?
My best piece, well, to be
honest, I'm pretty much never satisfied with my work, I'm always
thinking I can change this or this, I've got 2 models I really
like. The kater, cause its a good design, and the nxl cause its a
good model, so I still need to combine good design with a good
solid model. Who/what inspires you?
Pretty much every shape
or whatsoever, i also get inspired by music or after seeing a good
movie. How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your
work, relationships, and learning?
Well, I've found some great
artists that really show you that you're not even close to being
there, so there is always somebody upping the bar, and that keeps
me inspired to keep going. Also, the rhino forum is a great
community for fellow rhino people. Everything that I have learned,
I've pretty much learned in there, thanks guys :) Parting
Comments / Advice to other Artists?
I've heard alot of people
saying that they try to be half as good as this guy or that guy,
but with that motivation you won't get anywhere, just try to be the
best. Greets, Sabino
