3DAD: Did your photography hobby come before digital art? Have skills from this hobby helped to how you set the scenes in your rendered images?
JR: I’ve always been a bit of a snapper, no more than that. Although I did take my photography a bit more seriously when I moved to the Isle of Bute, and purchased my first digital camera. I have a wonderful vantage point from my balcony which is ideal for photographing the ships which pass beneath it. Photography helps me appreciate point of view (pov) and composition in my 3d landscaping scenes.
3DAD: You live on the island of Bute, Scotland. Has the scenery from your home influenced your landscape art with Terragen? Are there any art pieces you have done where you have mimicked actual scenery from near you home?
JR: Most of my scenes don’t relate to Scottish terrain features. Indeed most of my scenes involve desert or barren settings.
