Glenn Clovis is a 3D artist with a passion for space. He grew up influenced by sci-fi art in an artists household where he was challenged to create imaginative graphics.
He is an advanced PhotoShop user with a background in game creation. Nowhere does his inclination to space art come out than in some of his Nebula and Planet art.
He has a growing focus in 3D Modeling.
Glenn lives and works in Portland, Ore.
Björn Malmberg is currently living and working in Uddevalla, Sweden. Like so many others in the digital graphics world, art was an avocation rather than occupation. He got into role playing games in his early teens and along with that began to draw characters and images inspired by the game. His passion is science fiction but he explored fantasy and new age art using acrylics and water colours.
He started out in the digital realm using Poser and Bryce in 1997. In time Björn embraced the computer as a viable art platform and began to really hone the 3D work after incorporating a Wacom tablet.
He taught Photoshop and multimedia applications at Komvux, Uddevalla. Today Björn works full-time as a wage administrator.
Ryan Malone hails from the mountains of Western North Carolina in the US. A veteran of the military, Ryan works today as a network engineer for a mobile telephone company. Ryan’s earliest excursions into the arts was a mix of writing small plays with his sisters and sculpting clay where he forged his Sci-Fi roots by building creatures and alien monsters.
When Ryan got his first computer, a Commodore, in the early 80s a whole new world opened up. He swapped clay for bits and began drawing his creatures using bits of crude code on the new machine. The technology of the time was limited but it set the stage for Ryan’s growth as a digital artist.
Ryan dove into the 3D art world in 2006 with Vue, initially using it as a platform to storyboard for his writing projects. Today he uses a mix of Poser, Daz3d, Marvelous Designer, Hexagon and Photoshop to create images.
Shortly after joining the Deviant Art community Ryan crossed paths with Björn Malmberg and together they began working on the ExtraSolar project, constantly encouraging, learning and teaching each other new techniques.
