Q:Who is Vairesh? A: I am me, I have been me for as long as I can remember. Contrary to popular belief I am not an alien replacement. All the duplicates have been found and destroyed. Q:How long have you have you been rendering? A: My first render of anything was with Poser 1 a while ago. Computers have come a long way since then. There are video cards on the market today that are more powerful than the computer I did that first render on. I was so proud of myself that day. Q:What are you currently working on? A: I have several projects in different stages of developement. Right now I am working on something for DAZ's Michael. Q:What software do you use and why? A: I use a lot of different software. I use Poser 4 because it is just so easy to use and you can do so many different things with it.( Note to Curious Labs...Please, Please include real reflections in the renderer of Poser 5 ). I also use Photoshop, Max, Bryce, and Vue. I recieved Rhino for my birthday but I have not had the time to really learn how to use it. Q:Why do you like 3D art? A: I have always liked to create and draw. Whether it is using paints on canvas, building 3d items, or setting up a scene in Poser there has always been a strong desire inside of me to create. I now prefer 3d over paint because I can do in an hour what takes me a day to do on canvas. Q:What inspires you? A: Nature inspires me. There are so many beautiful forms in nature. All we have to do is slow down and look at the world with a childs eye. Q:How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning? A: I first found this forum many, many moons ago. I was having a problem importing items into Poser so I posted a question not expecting any response. I had posted to other forums on different things and never gotten a response.) I still remember the person who answered my question..it was Bushi ( I humbly bow in his direction for he is a true Poser Master). He helped me solve my importing problem and pointed me to other sites that had answers to other Poser questions I had. From that point on I was hooked. For all the changes that have happened on this forum it all still boils down to one thing...people helping other people. That is the way it is and as it should be. I owe alot of my Poser and 3D knowledge to the people at this forum. Thanks to all of you for all your help.
