Interview with Outoftouch
How did you originally get started in this career choice? What made you decide to become a vendor?
OutofTouch: It simply was one thing: curiosity! I'm always open to try out new stuff, I have always loved seeing 3D artwork and still feel very inspired by everything, every single day. Nowadays we can say: well where is something that doesn't have anything digital to it? The techniques are developing and I would say it is different today than 15 years back because it isn't so "exotic" or nerdy anymore. It was different back then when we found ourselves sitting in a cinema watching a 3D movie and thought: WOW! What is this!
Well what actually made me really get started in this career choice and sticking to 3D figure animation / rendering is that this has so many facettes to be creative, so many chances to grow. And while with other stuff in live I often feel bored very fast, this never bored me at all!
What is currently in your digital toolset, and what could you not do without?
OutofTouch: My current digital toolset includes DAZ Studio, Poser, Photoshop, Cinema 4D and ZBrush. Actually thinking about it now, I have often tried out other software, but I always come back to these. Except DAZ Studio, the other software is in my toolset for years. However over the past 2 years I have learned to simply love DAZ Studio. I think among these 5 softwares I could not do without it anymore.
