October's Artist of the Month - trevor3000

vette · October 1, 2001 8:10 am

Who is trevor3000? Trevor3000 is a son, a brother, a husband, a father, a friend, a Christian, a patriot and soldier, a student, a teacher a PSP Moderator and a community member here at Renderosity (not necessarily in that order). How long have you been rendering? To be honest with you I really don't recall. I began with Bryce 2 or 3, Poser 1 and 3D Studio 2 I believe. I remember thinking Poser 1 was the best thing since sliced bread because it enabled us to create a human body. And what a shock it was going from Poser 1 to Poser 4! What are you currently working on? Presently, I am waiting to ship overseas to serve my country in the military. Prior to the events of September 11, 2001 I intended to do some special projects with some friends here at Renderosity and I hope we will still be able to do these when I return. Also, I want to complete some doctoral and masters work. What software do I use and why? Entirely too many to list. And I suspect because I have been playing with computers since I was 10 years old and I am now 31. Many of the applications I use I have chosen because I have beta tested them and decided I preferred one as opposed to another. When I program/teach, I have software that enables me to work in the C languages, Visual Basic, Cold Fusion and Java more easily. When I am web authoring/teaching, I use Dreamweaver and Homesite for HTML, Fireworks, Flash, Authorware, Director/Shockwave Studio and Illustrator. For digital art/teaching, I use PSP7, Photoshop/Illustrator/After Effects bundle, Corel Graphics Suite, Painter, PhotoImpact. And too many filters/plugins to list. And of course Poser 4 with ProPack and Bryce 4 and 5. Why do you like 3d art? One of my favorite hobbies is roaming the galleries here at Renderosity and looking at all the various artists' works. It amazes me how so many different images can come from the same programs. Digital art programs can afford us not only another outlet for creativity but also another medium with which we can express that creativity. What inspires you? God, family, and friends mostly. Music, art, literature, historical and fictional events. And the simple things in life. Most recently many of us have been inspired (I believe) by the patriotism, heroism, and the unbelievable kindness, support and encouragement of all our friends worldwide. How has Renderosity's online community enhanced your work, relationships, and learning? I remember it took me awhile to build up the courage to post any images or comment on images by others here. I was seeing all these different artists' works and thinking wow, these are really excellent! I remember how much encouraging comments meant to me from my first friends here: Lorraine, Syyd, Ingrid Gilbert (HandspanStudios), Tammy and Kennect. As with any good community there are alot of very nice folks who are willing to say a kind word and offer and helping hand, and that is what I have found here at Renderosity. As O'Henry once wrote, everyone is worth knowing. I would like to thank everyone and in conclusion *and this is a shameless plug for the PSP Forum* feel free to drop by and visit us in the PSP Forum anytime. Pull up a chair, kick off your shoes and make yourself at home :) trevor3000's gallery

Congratulations Trev, I don't know you or much about you other then what I just read. It was interesting to learn about a fellow artist. I tip my hat to you and your work, which I just went to take a peek, and thank you for keeping me and my family free and safe. You are doing your country a great service. Sharen

Congrats, Trevor! I remember joining R'sity, feeling nervous about commenting upon other's works, and heaps terrified to post anything of my own, and you made me feel so welcomed through your words of encouragement. I don't think I ever properly thanked you for that ~ Thank you.. And thank you for giving so much of your time to all of us here upon the site. Your art is always thought-provoking and evocative. Good to see you up here, and I hold best wishes for all your endeavours!
