Jan 08, 2021 at 09:00 am by gToon

Our January 2021 Vendor of the Month is one of the most popular vendors in the Renderosity marketplace - hameleon. Anton (his real-life name) lives in Russia with his family, but as he's quoted in the interview below, "Renderosity is my home". He has won the VOM before and it's easy to see why - his work is original, sexy and full of style. We love his creations whether they are clothing, poses or even 3D architecture/rooms. He has over 100 3D assets and models in his store. 
We are reprinting a recent interview with hameleon and adding an update so you'll know what he's working on presently. Also, be sure to watch the video above which features 10 of his popular store items. 
Thank you, Anton, and congratulations for winning the Vendor of the Month for January 2021!

Congratulations for being chosen as VOM and thank you for the inerview. I've never understood about normalmaps what it is that they will do. By looking at the filter from Nvidia it's clearly explained!
