Do you think you will tackle another epic scale image in the future? If so, how do you think the things you learned from creating "A Picture" will be useful to you?
I think not. At the time of its development this image was really meaningful to me and focused on a really important and fundamental point. I'll move on but who knows, I could use the same technique again as I have not yet explored its full potential.
For the image "A Picture" I use the Daniel Gasienica tool: openzoom
. I do not want to be someone who is expected to create a new "epic painting" in a systematic way, from the ashes of his last image. I hope this will give ideas to others, but I get bored quickly when in a routine.
Could you tell us more about Deu Ter Ror?
I realized early in my 3D career a need to create and develop worlds. As my personal preferences were changing, the Deu Ter Ror universe has been built accordingly. It allows me to depict reality and change its meaning through sound,
So what are your plans for Deu Ter Ror? Do you think the universe will continue to evolve in the future?
Certainly, I have many ideas and plans for Deu Ror Ter. I want to complete a new album because the project as a whole includes both images and sounds that make up a complete universe. I take a lot of pleasure in working in one domain and ultimately seeing the world grow.
So what are you currently working on?
Working on "A Picture" marked a turning point in my projects. Renewal is important to stop me from getting bored and I have many projects underway in my portfolio. I plan to finish an album that I began in 2007, but I've also started to practice traditional animation, an approach to creating a narrative that I do not really know much about.
Can you recall the most useful piece of advice that you've been given, whether it was from a work colleague or another artist?
I'm not very methodical, so I try to have the patience to abandon a project for a while, so I can approach it with fresh eyes later.
Well it has been a really pleasure talking with you and I wish you all the best for the future.
Thank you for your attention and for the exposure. I like the idea of sharing my world. Also I take pleasure in discovering other artists who probably inspired me one way or another.
