3DA: How did you start working in 3D field? How much time has been passed and what kind of studies did you do?
АМ: It was in the beginning of year 2010. I was still studying in high-school and started to choose my future profession to enter a university. So I have decided for interior design. While collecting more information about this work-field. I found a web-site where it was written that for making interior renders one should learn 3DS Max. That’s how my acquaintance with 3d-graphic began. In the middle of 2010 I entered the Interior Design department of the university, where I continue my studies at the moment. I learn 3D by myself, because in the university we will start this subject only during the 3rd year (actually this year for me).

3DA: Tell us something about a project that gave you great satisfactions.
АМ: I can’t really give preference to some single project, because everything you work on teaches you something new, leaves you nice memories and helps to find your own style. I would probably just like to mention «Harvest»
, «Teatime» и «Bust» . These projects allowed me to discover a lot of interesting things.

3DA: From where do you take inspiration for your artworks?
АМ:I find inspiration everywhere. I follow works of different 3d-artists and photographers. Moreover I like to make photographs myself – that helps me to find ideas for my new projects and to notice even the small details not seen by the common eye.

3DA: How do you live this period of economic crisis? How is it in your country?
АМ: You can notice the crisis in the constantly growing prices. Otherwise one should not really complain: people always tend to want more and more.

3DA: What would you suggest to people that are approaching to 3D and architecture?
АМ: The most important is to grow. To search, to learn always something new. For me it’s the only way for developing one’s personality, for proffesional growth and for success. There is no life without progress.
