August's Contributor of the Month - StefyZZ

vette · August 5, 2001 6:54 pm

Renderosity: Who is StefyZZ? I'm Stefania, I live in Italy, I'm 30 years old and happily married. I really love animals and all Nature in general. Since I was a child I've always had a strong predisposition for Art in general, and I started playing the piano (classical) and began to draw with pencils when I was 5 years old. And I carry with me for the rest of my life these two professions, always engaged in both the Classical Pianist profession and the Painter profession. If you were to ask me which of the two I prefer, I really wouldn't know how to answer, as I have a deep passion for them both. Renderosity: How long have you have you been rendering? To be perfectly honest, not very long. I started rendering in October of 2000. Renderosity: What are you currently working on? Since texturing is my favorite and most fun job, I'm currently working on some new texture projects. Renderosity: What software do you use and why? I use Poser to render my characters, and Photoshop to create the textures and to do all post production work on my images. Renderosity: Why do you like 3D art? I know that this will not be an original answer, but the main reason is because 3D Art gives me really much more possibilities then the traditional Art Medias, and most of all, it saves me a lot of time! Renderosity: What inspires you? First of all everything I see that catches my eye (or well my mind), should it be a flower, a face, an animal, a cloud, actually nothing in particular. And second, but not less important, two antipodes things : the Music and the Silence. When I say Music I also mean the sounds of the Nature as the sound of a bird, or a cricket, etc.. Renderosity: How has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning? First of all with the great support and friendship of its wonderful members. There are so many really talented Artists here!! And they are all an infinite source of inspiration to me. I want to thank the entire community very much for sharing your marvellous Art and your precious friendship!!! :)

Well, let's see, only two items available in The Marketplace (Asia and Noa) and I HAD to have them both. I guess that means you're batting 1000 with me, Stefy. (Are you familiar with that American expression?) When I worked in Germany many years ago I had some fine friends from Italy who also worked in Germany, and today I have a very good friend from Italy who lives here in the USA, so perhaps I also have some particular affection for Italians. Keep up the excellent work!

I agree with trog

Sorry I couldn't catch you sooner Stef - my wife is currently touring from the US and will be in Milan FRI, Rome SAT-SUN, Florence MON, and Venice TUES. Dang, she could have dropped by to pick up a CD or two.

You'd think that as a group we'd be a little less gullible. We invent the people in the cyberwold yet we're all taken in by a picture of a model from the real world. One thing is true, the real SteffyZZ does great work, but for some reason I don't think she or he even plays the piano.

odinson ( posted at 12:00AM Thu, 09 August 2001
