Interview with liflame
How do you come up with ideas for new products?
lilflame: I have done quite a lot of products in all this years, so sometimes is hard to think of something new. I have my husband giving me some new ideas as well, so it helps a lot. Sometimes together with Sveva we think of some product together. I am glad that I get some help with projects, it makes it easier and more fun :)
Your sense of design, especially in female fashion and glamor, is marvelous! How have you come to develop such a great design sense?
lilflame: Being a woman I like wearing fashionable clothing myself, and this helps with many ideas. Playing quite a lot of online games as well, inspires me with some of my creations. Tho I never create items that I've see online, like they are. I always vision it in a different way. We can say I always add a pinch of lilflame in those designs. :)
Tell us a little about yourself; how long have you been creating 3D assets/media? Are you formally trained or self taught?
lilflame: Through the years, of being at Renderosity and other CG sites, I decided to be a full time vendor as 3D was something I enjoy and having fun creating content daily as a full time job is also a plus. To see everyday, others make art with products I create it also inspires me to do more and better.
As mentioned above I have been member here for over 10 years and thats how long I am creating, and still learning every day something new. I have taught myself modeling, using Poser and Daz studio along the way, with tutorials and sometimes just as trial and error.
What kinds of things are you working on now?
Powerage: I am working on a bigger clothing set, which is more Fantasy related, and It should be at Renderosity very soon. Right now I am finishing a more casual set, which I am planing to have released at my VOM store sale, it will fit spring/summer season. I have some more props and environments sets planed in the future for Renderosity and of course, more clothing.
What kind of software do you use to create your products? And can you let us know what your computer set up is?
lilflame: I still use my old 3ds Max, alot of Hexagon 2 and mostly Zbrush. I still support Poser for the items that work there, and alot of DAZ studio. I enjoy rendering with Iray so I had to upgrade some of my computer this year.
- GPU: ASUS strix NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti, 6 GB
- Processor: Intel Core i7-4770 ,
- 16 GB RAM
- 2x 250 GB SSD in RAID 1, for backup.

If someone wanted to get into creating/selling digital products at Renderosity, what advice would you give them?
To never give up just because it seems difficult or new. Always learning new things will make you better and improve your quality. Changing, learning, improving, will make your products stand out.
