Rules and creativity are fickle companions: there is a fine line between helpful guidelines and crippling restrictions, as Amanda Kędzierska, our June 2021 3D Artist of the Month, can attest to. When the work on her master thesis left her feeling too limited in her creativity, she decided to completely rework the project after graduating. No longer bound by the confines of academic demands, she unleashed her full artistic potential. Encouraged by the positive feedback, Amanda committed to her newfound passion, and is now pursuing a career as a professional archviz artist.
In our interview, Amanda discusses the emotional impact of colors, wabi-sabi and the joys of subtle aesthetic disruptions.

This month’s ArtWanted! feature sees the return of a familiar face: Russian CG artist and all-rounder Sergey Buravtsov is back, and once again he has blessed us with an outstanding character artwork. His portrayal of Cleopatra perpetuates the myths surrounding one of history’s most fascinating, yet elusive figures on a 3D canvas. Every bit as beautiful and deadly as the asp coiled around her neck, the Egyptian ruler has never looked better – eat your heart out, Elizabeth Taylor!
In our interview, we catch up with Sergey and take a closer look at the making of one of his most recent, personal projects.

Whether art imitates life or life imitates art, one thing is for certain: hardly anybody’s home looks as neat and tidy as your usual CG interior. When reworking an image following an archviz job, Fadi Alsharif, our May 2021 3D Artist of the Month, decided to try something different: bending the rules, the Syrian CG artist designed an aesthetic that replicates more realistic living conditions, with a relaxing calmness arising from a carefully composited chaos.
In our interview, Fadi talks about self-teaching, dream jobs, and thinking outside of the box.

Project Phoenix was created by RebusFarm to help 3D artists through these rough times. We thought about a way to support our community and came up with a maximum 75% GPU discount to help artists realize new projects and therefore help them to rise again. This very high price cut was pushing our limits, so we were only able to do that for a limited time.
We actually wanted to go back to our regular GPU price now, but we decided to keep up our support for the community and to only go back up to 50% of the old GPU price. So from today, you get a 50% price cut of the old GPU price, that we had before we started our Project Phoenix. That means that our project continues:
PROJECT PHOENIX: 50% GPU PRICE CUT

Staring at the wall is usually indicative of a creative drought. For Davide Tezza, it’s a never-ending source of inspiration. Where others might stare mindlessly into the void, the Italian architect and 3D artist sees only potentiality. His minimalist designs are the result of a deep understanding of form and composition and deliberate self-restraint, generating meaning out of thin air.
In our interview, Davide talks about the challenges of running a one-man-studio, designing emptiness, and how to avoid the perfectionist trap.

Architecture is a reflection of how we think of ourselves and our place in the world. The work of Alfa Smyrna, our March 2021 3D Artist of the Month, is inseparably linked to her life experience. Having spent time in Sweden, where she worked on the iconic IKEA catalog, Alfa developed a great appreciation not only for the Scandinavian aesthetic, but the lifestyle as well. Her personal philosophy naturally extends to her designs, which capture the simple and timeless elegance of minimalist iconography.
In our interview, Alfa talks about creating her own models, honest materials and the beauty of imperfection.
