Who is outoftouch?
Actually "outoftouch" is a little team of 3 persons from Germany, although I, Timo, am the one who stand all of Vicky's good or bad moods. To say, I'm the one who does all the Poser related stuff. Beneath Poser and Vicky, if time allows a "beneath", I love playing Wii with friends, chatting, listening to music or do music on my own. Without music I could not live and work.
How long have you have you been involved in digital art?
It began a long time ago, about 10 years back already, with the first tries in texturing and also modelling objects for a computer game. Working with Poser began with my purchase of Poser 5, though I already had older versions but they did not catch my interest that much. With Poser 5 it began intensivly and did not stop until yet and I guess and hope it will not stop any time. :-) It is some kind of being addicted to it.
What are you currently working on?
Currently we are working on a bunch of Halloween related products. There is a very cool project Bice and I did with Freja and Adiene, so to say the follower of "Lola Lemora". We have a gothic themed punk outfit and hair nearly finished for our "Impacts" series, as well as there are thousands of other things that lay around here and want to be finished. Beneath that we should have something new finished for Kali and Kelm very soon too.
What software do you use and why?
There is a lot of software I'm using. Photoshop CS4 for Textures, Sketches and Promos. Poser 8 for setting up Figures, Rigging, Morphing, Rendering. Cinema 4D 11 for Modelling, Morphing and Mapping. ZBrush 3.5 for Morphing. UV Mapper for Template Creation and all those little Poser Tools by Dimension3D, they help alot! Sometimes I'm using DAZ Studio for Testing.
Where do you find inspiration for your products?
More and more I notice, that I'm getting most inspired by music and its music videos. But I also find inspiration in movies, TV, magazines or just with a walk through the town and shops. Shop windows from fashion stores inspire me much! Last but not least there are my partners, especially Bianca Ilona. A simple idea begins to grow into infinity when discussing about it. Inspiration just flows there.
Do you have any advice for aspiring Digital Content Developers?
Please really enjoy and love what you are doing! There is
nothing worse than doing something you do not like or want. Always
try to do the best you can! Be creative and try to experiment.
Never give up and keep it coming ;-)
How has this online Community (Renderosity) enhanced
relationships, and learning?
