3D EMPIRE – FIRST OF ALL; THANKS FOR ACCEPTING THIS INTERVIEW WITH 3D EMPIRE. WOULD YOU PLEASE SHORTLY INTRODUCE YOURSELF?
RASHED ABDULAH – Actually; I am a young man born in 1992 in a small village of Palestine. 3D has always been a passion for me and I’ve been working to be one of the best designers of 3D WORLD!
3DE – HOW AND WHEN DID YOU GET INVOLVED WITH 3D BUSINESS IN THE VERY FIRST PLACE?
R.A. – I began 3d with Cinema 4d in 2014. To tell you the truth; my computer did not have sufficient spefications.So I had hard times with desigining and render at the time. But I was really dedicated to learn and improve myself on 3d. So I learned to use many 3d softwares through these years till present day. This learning progress is still going on and I think it will do so for the next long years too.
3DE- ARE YOU DEALING WITH 3D AS A PROFESSIONAL AND MAKING MONEY OF IT OR IS 3D JUST A HOBBY FOR YOU?
R.A. -I’ve been working as a professional and making money of 3d design business. I’m an interior designer actually. Maybe I can work in the different areas of 3d in the future.
3DE- WHICH 3D SOFTWARES DO YOU USE?
R.A. – I use;
3DE -What is your work path through the creating process of a scene and what kind of phases do you follow to make your scenes?
R.A. – I always start by looking for good reference photos for my scene. That’s very important for my inspiration definitely. After I’m satisfied with the reference photos
I collected, I start to modelling through those photos.
After all models are ready, I put the cameras in dramatic angles to tell my story sensitively. Then I add the basic lights. I make many test renders till I get the final result
I wish to get.
3DE – WHEN WE CHECK YOUR RENDERS WE SEE THAT YOU LIKE TO CREATE 3D MODELS FROM THE DIFFERENT SECTIONS OF 3D LIKE ORGANIC MODELLING, INTERIOR MODELS ETC. MOST ARTISTS FOCUS ONLY ON
ONE PART OF 3D BUT YOU FOCUS ON DIFFERENT PARTS OF IT. IS THERE A SPECIAL REASON FOR THIS?
R.A. – 3D is like an endless ocean where there is no limit to what you can imagine & and do. So my dream is to be able to make anything I want in this 3d world. I learn anyhthing I can.
To have a speciality is a good thing and I don’t limit myself to learn only one field of 3d!
3DE – WE SEE THAT YOUR TEXTURING SKILLS ARE GREAT. HOW DO YOU CREATE YOUR TEXTURES OR DO YOU DOWNLOAD THEM FROM A WEBSITE ETC?
R.A. – It depends on the project definitely. Sometimes I find them from texture sources and sometimes I create them from the scractch myself.
3DE -YOU HAVE MODELLED 2 FAMOUS REAL-TIME HOLLYWOOD ACTORS LATELY AND THE ALIKENESS OF YOUR MODELS TO THE ORIGINAL ONES ARE ALMOST %100. HOW DID YOU ACHIVE THAT MUCH ALIKENESS ON YOUR MODELS?
R.A. – The most important thing to achive that is to find the best reference photos possible of the actors that you plan to model. To model an actor from your memory is almost impossible.
You must be really patient inorder to get the perfect result you wish to achive.So; find the best reference photos possible and have the best patience possible also.
3DE -WHAT IS YOUR ULTIMATE GOAL IN 3D BUSINESS?
R.A. – To be honest with you; I had some dreams and goals to reach in my younger ages and I think I’ve achieved all of them. But I still need to train and work much more to achievemuch more great artworks and I think my future goals will be clear then.
