The talented Renderosity artist and vendor Dimension3D (aka Ralf Sesseler) died in June.

Ralf was a member of Renderosity since 2004. He has posted many items in his gallery and online store. Ralf was chosen Vendor of the Month for July, 2008. He worked with Poser, Daz 3D and Cinema 4D as his main creation tools. He also had a packed personal website which featured tutorials, images and helpful tools. His generosity of spirit and kindness will be remembered.

His brother, Patrick, said this about his brother recently:

"My brother never spoke much about his work, or showed it to us, and what we see now is a completely new world for us. It somehow remained a mystery how he got into this field.

"After school, he studied both philosophy and computer science, two fields in silence that seem to have no connection. In the first field he made a bachelor, the later even a doctor. However he did not search for a job in the field he made his doctor in, which were automated traffic control systems, but just made another turn and started programming games.

"Also his taste of music showed an ambivalence: listening to the hardest of heavy metal on one side, and owning a great selection of classic music on the other side."

Our condolences to Patrick and his family for their loss.

We will miss Ralf Sessler. He was a friend to many at Renderosity and shared his art and knowledge with us even though his wider family knew nothing about it. We thank you, Ralf, for being our friend.

Please take a moment to visit Ralf's Renderosity store and gallery (he goes my the name Dimension3D). Ralf also had a great website with lots of images, tutorials and tools.
