file_486116.jpgCongratulations to Dinoraul for being Renderosity's Vendor of the Month for September!

Who is 'Dinoraul'?

My name is Raul Lunia, artist name "Dinoraul."

How long have you been involved in digital art?

I've been involved in digital art around 10 years.

What made you decide to become a Vendor?

I made lot of 3D creations for my renders, and after that they just became forgotten on my hard disk. So, I decided to start selling them, to make them useful for other 3D artists.

file_486117.jpgWhat are you currently working on?

Some new tree species are coming, and a new creature - Demirox (pictured at right).

What software is currently in your digital toolset and why?

I use LightWave3D for creating the geometry and mapping, 3D Coat for texturing and Photoshop for the final touch.

What sparked your interest in the prehistoric creatures you create?

I have been interested in nature as long as I can remember. I love animals. I discovered dinosaurs when I was around 10 years old.

Do you have any favorites among the products you've created?

No, I do not have favorites, every animal and creature and tree is important to me.

Do you have any advice for aspiring Digital Content Developers?

To learn 3D - patience...and once more, patience. Everybody wants to create some creature as soon as possible, but to achieve satisfying results takes a long time. And 3D means learning new stuff every day.

Has this online Community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning?

Sure, it has. Comments have been very helpful.

Do you have any final words or advice for other digital artists?

You can always do better work than your last work.

There are no finer dinosaurs for the 3D hobbyist market than DinoRaul's. I've bought every single one DAZ 3D has to offer, and now I need to start in on Renderosity's selection.

His models are great! I have several, and every 3D artist should have a least one. You never know when the prehistoric mood might hit you! Congrats.

Congrats deserve the spotlight. I have bought several of your tree packages and they are THE BEST. Got some of your little creatures too. The quality is outstanding to say the least. Thanks for sharing your creations. They make 3D art a whole lot better.

Dinoraul your the best, When I grow up I wanna be just like you. But seriously your dinos were what got me interested in digital art. Thanks for sharing.

I love your work Raul, have lots of them myself and would like lots more. I have also been quite curious to put a face on you so the VOM is a double bonus :). Thanks for you creativity and patience :)

Congratulations! Wonderful work. If I had the money I would buy the whole shop at once.

Chaosphoto ( posted at 2:07AM Sun, 16 September 2012

oh damn, i had 12 of your items in my shopping cart and when I pressed checkout they went back to the non sale prices. Thats a real shame so I guess I'll be eagerly awaiting your next such sale.

True dedication to the nuances and details! I love my TitanoboaDR, and beautiful Foliage from your store! I have a feeling you may get back to back VOM! And it would be well deserved. HugZ! Ariana

Cool to see a picture of you, but man, you look like a deer caught in the headlights.... Congrats on the VOM... Love it when you create dinos that don't exist like your dinosapiens - which I still haven't got, someday when I can get it in the budget... Would love to see you make something with the body of the hulk and oversized head of T rex with horns of a triceratops, backspine of a stegasaurus, big scary demon snake eys....

Dinoraul's models represent the pinnacle of prehistoric polygons. You are the Prince of the Pleistocene. The King of the Cretaceous. The Talent of the Triassic. Keep'em coming...
