3DA: How did you start working in 3D field? How much time has been passed?
DB: I started my own office specialized in architectural visualization nearly 2 years ago. But I’ve always been involved and interested in 3D, at the age of 16 I started my own learnig with Autocad 3D and also some attemps in 3ds Max. But it was during my stage work in a big office that i discovered Sketchup, when I was 25 and I really get addict to the 3D world.
3DA: Which are your favourite software and plugins for your daily projects?
DB: My favourite software is Sketchup, because it is fast, simple and stable to build up nice architectural models, it is very intuitive to learn. For the rendering I use Vray for the sketchup, which allows you to make your images very realistic, but at the begining it was little crazy to learn it well. Now I’m interested in learn deeply 3ds Max and Vray for Max. About plugins, Sketchup is full of them!! …and I love them all, but I think that the tools about surface, subdv and smooth and artisan are very powerful.
3DA: Tell us something about a project that gave you great satisfactions
DB: Well I don’t have one because I’m always testing , FB followers knows it well, I’m always wiping, and testing things, this is my way to learn. I think the best satisfactions is to see you get , what you are searching on an image (technically, lighting, compositing, emotional speaking).
3DA: From where do you take ispiration for your artworks?
DB: My very first shock in 3D was by watching Alex Roman film, it was really impressive for me such a beauty images, it’s a masterpiece. Some other amazing artists for me are: Peter Guthrier, Pawel Podowesky, Ronen Bekerman, Luxigon, dBox, Hayes Davidson, Mir, Berttrand Benoit, Matt Gueta, State of Art, Pixelflakes, Pixela , Vyonyx and so on… I’m really interested now in composition, so I’m reading a lot of blogs of photography, and enjoying with some personal analysis of the pictures.
3DA: What would you suggest to people that are approaching to 3D and architecture?
DB: Patience, to learn it slowly or their own speed but learn it well, with nice concepts of art, drawing, photography, architecture, and never give up the aim to learn every day, practice every day. And the most important part: enjoy, enjoy and enjoy!
