Name: Ahmad Bakhshi
Job: 3D artist
3DA: Why have you decided to work in 3d-field and when have you started?
AB: In reality I was in love with cinema, I decided to start working on 3D as a way to get into cinema, but when I started I found out that its really lovely and amazing and made me crazy.
I started about 2 years and 2 month ago, in march 2012.
3DA: Describe to our readers your usual workflow
AB: I have 2 kind of works, first my personal work that is the biggest part of my projects and second, my works for client. In my personal works I prefer to make whatever makes me feel good, I start with modeling the base mesh and matching the camera and finalizing the scene, but when I work for client I use the common procedure, starting by plan, modeling etc… finally I love post-production with Photoshop: blending layers, color correction, adding details, etc.
3DA: What was most difficult for you when you just started working in 3D? And what is now?
AB: I think lighting was really difficult for me, because my pc was really weak and never let me test my renders, but now I guess everything is ok.
3DA: Looking back on your education process what you would have changed now? And what you consider right and would do exactly the same?
AB: I studied civil engineering and maybe this could help in architecture rendering but I guess interior design could be more sufficient, but I’m not just an interior designer or architectural renderer, I like to work in different fields and everything can help me, like designing cars, or professional modeling.
3DA: Which was the biggest problem that you faced working on a project and how have you solved it?
AB: My biggest challenge was the question: how far could I go in my renders with 3D and how far with photoshop? so I start testing and editing times and times and finally got my answer.
3DA: What forecast you can make about the future of 3d-world in general?
AB: It’s really amazing world and always makes me wow, I never imagine this kind of technology and 3D visualization, so I prefer to watch and enjoy instead of forecast.
