3DA: How did you start working in 3D field? How much time has passed and what kind of studies did you do?
IT: I first started 3D field in my second year of bachelor studies on University of Architecture in Nis, Serbia. For almost every project we did on our studies it was mandatory to enclose at least four 3D pictures, so I decided to start learning 3ds Max. Now I gain my Master degree and founded small architectural studio with my classmates.

3DA: Which are your favourite software and plugins for your daily projects?
IT: Well, I prefer to do everything in 3D than later to add and adjust things in Photoshop. As I mentioned all my 3D work is done in 3ds Max and Vray (as render engine). Useful plugins also are Forest Pack, Multi Scatter, Batzal Roof Designer and regarding the scripts I often use Floor Generator. All the post-processing work I do in Photoshop and Photo Looks.

3DA: Tell us something about a project that gave you great satisfactions
IT: There are many projects that I enjoyed working on, however they cannot be published yet since I am obligated with NDA contract. From the published ones I most prefer interior of the “Mountain cabin” and the interior of the ” Student apartment suite/Modular construction”, which is part of the “Rosendal student campus” project that my studio designed. We expect building permits in the end of this year.
There is also “Glass house” that I did for one architectural competition and “Eco house”, my old school project that received very positive reviews from my professors.

3DA: From where do you take ispiration for your artworks?
IT: Lot of my inspiration comes from various architectural websites and magazines. All the time I try to keep up with the latest projects and news in area of architecture and engineering. Archdaily is inexhaustible source of inspiration, as well as Evermotion regarding the 3D visualization. Also, you can learn a lot from great masters of 3D world such as Alex Roman, Ronen Bekerman, Peter Guthrie, Juraj Talcik, Sergio Mereces, Pawel Podwojwski, George Nijland etc. I would also recommend to everyone to buy as many architectural book as they can, so they can get better feeling for the composition and camera angling.

3DA: How do you live this period of economic crisis? How is it in your country?
IT: I think it is difficult for everyone in this period, especially here in countries that still draw consequences of the recent wars. However if you are trying to maintain high level of quality and respect toward your clients they will repay to you with the same level of gratitude and business will keep on thriving.

3DA: What would you suggest to people that are approaching to 3D and architecture?
IT: My most important advice to the people approaching 3D and architecture is that you must love the job you are doing. That is the main key to success. Also you need to be patient and always continue learning new things, nothing comes over night. Always learn from the best and eventually you will become one of them.
