RENDERFEED ARTIST PROFILE – MARK GMEHLING

Renderfeed: Tell me a little bit about yourself and about your life as a designer in Dortmund.

(Mark) 50% of my daily business is commercial illustration and animation. 2 days a week I’m teaching graphic design and digital illustration; the rest of the week I am working on my personal projects.

Being a designer in Dortmund is nothing special. 99% of my jobs are handled via email, so I could sit everywhere on this planet as long as I have a stable web connection. In fact Dortmund with its 580,000 citizens is a quite small city, but I enjoy life and the people here. I can afford a studio, which I couldn’t afford if I was based in London or New York. Next to that I’m still with my old school friends here.

Renderfeed: Your digital work is very unique, crazy funny and colorful, with textures that resemble translucent porcelain or shiny plastic. How did you develop such a personal style?

(Mark) I don’t think it was a combination of conscious decisions, but coming from a graffiti background where everyone was painting letters back in the days you were always fighting for attention, you wanted your letters to be recognized, you needed to develop a signature style. I always forced myself to not copy other people or walk on beaten tracks. So I tried to innovate and look different. When I look at my personal work nowadays I think it is a combination of characters and typography- trying to be dynamic and balanced at the same time.

RENDERFEED ARTIST PROFILE – MARC URTASUN

Renderfeed: Tell us a little bit about yourself and about your life as a designer in Barcelona!

(Marc) Hello everyone, my name is Marc Urtasun. First of all I would like to congratulate Renderfeed on their artist interviews; this is a great initiative!

I am 23 years old and I currently live and work in Barcelona, Spain. I just finished my college degree, but I’ve worked as a freelance designer for practically a year now. I am passionate about everything related to design and particularly about the 3D world, because of the infinite creative possibilities it offers.

What I like best about this job is that there is always something new to learn. I consider myself a very inquisitive and curious person who likes to explore and find new artistic references and artists to get inspired by.

Renderfeed: What type of work do you specialize in?

(Marc) I am currently focusing on motion graphics and 3D design. As mentioned I only recently started doing this professionally and I have been trying to balance my professional work with my college assignments.

Renderfeed: Did you attend any classes in college that helped prepare you to become the artist that you are today?

(Marc) I studied multimedia at CITM (Centro de la Imagen y la Tecnología Multimedia) in Barcelona, Spain. I tried to not miss any of my classes and lectures, but to be honest many of the things I learned aren’t really that useful for the work I do now. University simply shows you the tools and with any luck you find a good professor, but I think I learned much more at home, spending time in front of my computer.

There is a lot of information online in the areas of 3D, design, video […]

Renderfeed studio profile – Vogner

Vogner is a creative studio with a passion for motion design. Using a variety of techniques, LA-based Vogner strives to bring the clients’ vision to life through live action, design and animation. We chatted to founders Graham and Patrick about their studio and asked them about their favorite projects!
Renderfeed: Patrick, Graham, thanks for taking the time to sit down with us. Can you start out by telling us a little bit about yourselves? How long you have been working in the animation industry?

(Patrick) Thank you as well! Both Graham and myself come from a background in design ranging from print, footwear/product design and motion graphics. We both have had a focus in the Motion Graphics design industry for 10+ years.

Renderfeed: Let’s travel back to your childhood: Where did you go to school, and what classes did you study? What helped prepare you to become the artists that you are today?

(Patrick) From a young age I was always very interested in various forms of art. The first medium that really caught my interest was silk screening, which evolved into graphic arts to create intricate designs that could not have been printed otherwise. I attended Loyola Marymount University here in Los Angeles and graduated with a degree in graphic design. At school I was introduced to Motion Graphics and got my first internship at Buck design, which led to my first job there learning the ins and outs of the industry. After that I started freelancing around Los Angeles, New York, Copenhagen and Milan, where I got a chance to see a variety of techniques and had the opportunity to work with some very talented and passionate people.

(Graham) I was also interested in art and crafting with […]

James Shaw has posted THIS article that lays out a ton of useful Vray parameters. It is for 3D Studio Max, but all the concepts apply for VrayforC4D. “Recently Ryan Lintott and I went to a VRay training seminar by the man himself Vladimir Koylazo (one of the makers of VRay) who went through a number of facets of VRay including a step by step way of breaking down your render settings into logical steps to get the best combination of quality and speed.”
