wyrmmaster - April '03 Merchant of the Month

ClintH · April 1, 2003 7:53 am

How did you get started in 3D Graphics? I first began working with 2D graphic art on a Commodore VIC 20. The art was VERY limitedlines and blocks! In the 1980s, I saw the film Tron and became obsessed with computer art from that point on. Armed with an Amiga 2000, and a program called Imagine, I created my first 3D human figures, which were mainly used as proportion references for my 2D artwork. Even after I migrated to the PC platform, I continued to use the computer to enhance my 2D work. Eventually, I discovered this amazing product called Poser 2, and the rest is history. How long have you been working with 3D Graphics? I started using 3D art to add references for my pencil work in the mid 90s. I began using 3D art as a final product in 1999 when I purchased a copy of Poser 3. Do you have any formal training? I have one semester of commercial art. I was told to stop. What software do you use to develop your products? I use Poser 4/Poser 5 to develop the products I currently use. Most of my products are created by hand typing internal code within pose/prop files. I have very few products that are simply saved internally. How much time is required for product development? Because I hand type the code within my files, product development can take a long time. Sometimes it can take a month or two make a base product. Do you have any advice on how to get started selling 3D Products? I think people should start with free stuff. This serves three functions. 1. It lets one get used to some of the technical problems that may arise from working on multiple platforms (MAC/PC, XP/98, etc..) 2. It lets people get used to your name. 3. It lets you know if people are interested in your products. Lastly, dont expect to get rich quickly! Where does your inspiration come from when developing new products? I basically make products that for myself first. If I like the product then I develop it for sale. I dont make products with sales numbers in mind, I make products that I would want, and they tend to sell well. How has Renderosity's on-line community played a role in regards to your products, friendships and learning? First, Renderosity provides inspiration. I was inspired by PhilC, mobius, and others. I think it also provides healthy criticism. Constant complaints about my lack of post work frustrated me at first, but made me a better artist in the long run.

Well deserved IMHO!! Well!

Congrats. With the advancement of poser scripting, it is a great step in the development of "tuned" figures. It really is a great step in the development of poser power, and totally independent! But, it is hardly a surprise! ;) I was guessing it would be him to get this honor this month.

Congratulations! I love your products. They are so easy to use. I feel like I'm cheating because with a click of a button I have muscles of any proportion for my guys. They have saved me hours. Cheers!

Congrats, Wyrmmaster, you deserve it. Your products look awasome and as a result I have a load of your products on my wishlist...hehe. I think your pics are great too. You are one of the Great Inspirers of Renderosity in my opinion, both for fellow artists and upcomming merchants.

It's about freaking time ;) Seriously, wyrm, you're one of my all time favorite resources (with maybe Traveler coming close to a tie) because your products not only produce busty beauties, but the pose collections are (for me) invaluable for developing good scenes.

Congratulations Wyrmmaster! Each of your products is a must-have. Since I bought the first, I seldom use others models for my pictures. We all look forward to new works of you. Best wishes

I love your work, I really do. I wish I had the dedication you do to learn what you have. I do have one opinion; that you attempt some female figures with smaller breasts. In my opinion it would be something of a challenge to make smaller yet more beautiful breasts. Just a thought.

Congratulations Wyrm. You have the best looking ladies period. You have done an excellent job on all your products including your mike figures. Like I've said in the past, thank you for inspiring me to do what i do now. And I could have never done them without your girls. A big thanks and congrats. Keep up the good work and dont stop rendering please. Later.
