Fabrice Delage is known for his persistant objective in trying to gain photo realistic character portraits from using Poser, Vue and Photoshop. We originally interviewed Fabrice in issue 3 back in September 2010 and included some of his best work from his portfolio at the time alongside the interview. We’ve reproduced the article in full here for you to learn a little more about Fabrice and his portfolio.

3DAD: How long have you been involved with digital art? What were the beginnings?
FD: I started with 3D seven years ago. I already used 2D at work and since I love doing portraits, I wanted to create my own images. The idea of using 3D for portraits came quite naturally. I started with Poser 5 and was really satisfied with this program.
3DAD: Did you work with paints or photography before going digital?
FD: I do a lot of sketching and painting.
3DAD: Who were your first mentors or artists that inspired you the most as you started out?
