3D Artist of the Month December 2015

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015 by Nadine Obst

 

And now we introduce to you the winner of our December 2015 3D Artist of the Month competition: Peter Nowacki, CG artist from Poland, with his Star Wars inspired artwork "Far Far Away".

Peter started his digital journey using Photoshop and is now developing his skills in the 3D industry, mostly focussing on lighting, shading and rendering. For his winning picture "Far Far Away" he first created a digital collage in Photoshop: "This allows me to understand how textures in the 3D world work." He then connected Vray, 3ds Max and Photoshop and he is planning to spend some time on using Arnold for Maya in the near future, too. We asked Peter what the idea behind his work was and he shared the following: "I created this artwork because of an anxious thought I had in my mind: These days, children´s imagination is limited. The lightsaber is only a symbol to show that with a little imagination, even an old pipe in an old cottage could be your sword. You write your own fantasy story in your head not your gaming console!" This picture is the first of an upcoming triptych about childrens minds. We are very curious about the upcoming pictures and will definitely check his website for news.

Peter underlined he uses RebusFarm a lot, both for his personal and commercial productions: "It is really fast and easy to use, just like rendering in my own house. Just plug-and-play and in case I had any issues, the helpdesk was always really helpful and user-friendly. You gave an amazing gift to the whole 3D industry. Thanks for that!"

Peter had an encouriging advise to all artists which we don´t want to hold back any longer: "Never give up, learn as much as you can, observe and think critically. Surround yourself with creative people, never hesitate to ask for help, share your knowledge and think positive!". We´d like to thank Peter for his participation and wish him all the best for his promising future.

By the end of this year we are announcing the 3D Artist of the Year 2015 amongst all winning pictures. So, don´t forget to vote for your 3D Artist of the Year 2015! And if you want to be our next featured 3D Artist of the Month in 2016 and win 250 Renderpoints just visit our facebook page, upload one of your self-made 3D images and send us a personal message containing your email address.

 


 

3D Artist of the Month November 2015

Sunday, November 1st, 2015 by Nadine Obst

 

 

It´s about time to announce our November 2015 Artist of the Month: Osama Aly, an Egyptian artist working as Senior Interior Designer at IMPACT Interior Design.

Since he started his career as a freelancer in 2003, he has been working for several reputable interior design companies. His winning picture is called "Inspiration or Desperation" and was created using 3D Max, Photoshop and Corona Render, which he himself called challenging: "The main challenge for me was how will I use Corona Render, because it was my first time working with this particular program." The woman shown in this stunning composition is a 3D model with modifications made by Osama. He wanted to create a picture to inspire others with its atmosphere: "I have tried to create an image that makes you feel the smoothness and smell the fresh air through a few objects like the piano, the woman, the deer, the gramophone, the framed photo and the curtains."

While we believe, he did a fantastic job, feel free to check out his work yourself! 

Osama has used RebusFarm for numerous smaller projects in the past: "The most I liked was the quick response and the customer service." Furthermore he let us in on a little secret: "I would like to thank you for selecting my work and it´s my great pleasure to be the Artist of this particular month, since my birthday is in November! Really, it will be the best birthday gift I have ever received in my life!"

Well, actually it´s our turn to say thank you! We wish you all the best and congratulations from the whole RebusFarm team! And finally, of course: Happy birthday from all of us!

You want to be our next featured Artist of the Month in the upcoming month of December and win 250 Renderpoints? Then, just visit our facebook page, upload one of your self-made 3D images and send us a personal message containing your email address. We'll choose the best image and contact the winner.
