Next to a day job in the IT industry, Frank Basinki is a veteran Terragen artist, and the owner and founder of New World Digital Art, also known as “NWDA” – an online store for Terragen content and tutorials. He has a diploma in electric engineering, but never worked as an engineer in that field, as he preferred a career in sales and marketing. His Terragen career started in year 2000 with an early version of Terragen classic. He became active in the community by writing tutorials for Terragen Classic, and later on for Terragen 2. With the launch of Terragen 2, he realized a demand for high quality Terragen 2 content, founded NWDA and today partners with six other renowned Terragen artist.
As an artist, Frank prefers to work on still images, and is mostly focused on achieving photo realistic results, whereas the actual scenes may not resemble any real places.
Frank lives in Germany with his family, likes to read fiction, go on bicycle tours, listen to some pretty heavy music, cook, be with friends, and above all, spend time with his kids.
Jan Walter Schliep has been freelancing in the fields of computer graphics since the late 90íes. Mainly doing visualization he noticed fast, that 3D plants were rather rare, so he started to create his own content. He also worked for companies like Xfrog, where he specialized even more on 3D and nature. One of his tools of choice was Terragen and when Terragen 2 was released, Jan Walter (aka Walli)started to produce 3D content for that application, working together with Frank, founder of NWDA. Walli also started his own shop, where he serves other applications too.
As most commercial work has to be clean and photo realistic, he likes to do grimy, non-perfect scenes.
Jan Walter lives in Germany with his family, likes to read and watch fiction and spends most of his free time with kids, wife and dog.
Franck Doassans, aka Seth, is a 36 year old Terragen user living in Paris. He is well known on the Planetside forums and at New World Digital Art where his Wilderness tutorial has been his most popular.
His passion for Terragen and computer graphics is absolute. He spends all of his free time creating visual works. Franck has often said, “In my right hand, I have the power to create a world!” all thanks to Terragen.
One of his best professional experiences was working in Bristol for a few months directing the graphics on a documentary for the United Arabian Emirates 40th anniversary. This project was under the auspices of National Geographic and the BBC. Franck thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity with full-time with Terragen 2 in collaboration with other artists.
