Margy (Margythunderstorm) was the winner of our magazine contest. So, we conducted an interview with her and asked some questions about the process of making it.
Renderosity Magazine: How long did it take to make?
Margy: The image itself took about 3 or 4 hours until it was to my liking, but the whole process to get the idea and slogan needed days.
What inspired you to make it?
It was a little bit of everything. TV, magazines, internet and the world around me. One day, I had the first part of the slogan in my mind "Don't be puzzled." Puzzle was the word which gave me the idea to create an image with puzzle effect. And, of course, I wanted to use a figure from the Renderosity Marketplace with a great expression. Mavka was perfect for this idea!
How long have you been an artist?
As a child, I drew a lot of images. During puberty, I lost the interest in drawing and also my creativity. But 10 years ago, I saw some wonderful images on the internet and thought, it would be nice to do something creative again. I started with PhotoImpact and learned a lot from this program from my aunt.
One year later, I saw a lot of wonderful tubes created with Poser and I wanted to learn to create them by myself. So I bought Poser and learned it through forums on the internet.
Meanwhile, I enjoy helping the community and write tutorials for Poser. Because my native language is much better than English. I prefer to write my tutorials in german.
What software did you use?
For this image, I used Poser Pro 11, Photoshop Elements 14 and Filter Forge for the puzzle effect.
