3DAD 004 : Creating steampunk art with Poser Pro 2012 – Interview with digital artist Suzi Amberson

Suzi Amberson is from sunny Phoenix, Arizona. She worked in the Insurance industry for 24 years before discovering a passion for digital art. Once Suzi realized she was not following her intended path she took a huge leap of faith and left the Insurance business to pursue her enthusiasm for creating 3D art.

Suzi is a self-taught artist. She started out with Poser 6 in 2007. Her CG toolbox has expanded over the past few years and now includes Poser Pro 2012, Photoshop CS5 Extended, a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet, Marvelous Designer 2, Hexagon and Bryce as her tools of choice.

She entered her first official art contest in 2009 over on the Daz3D website. The challenge was to create an image in the spirit of the infamous fantasy artist, Frank Frazetta. The final judging was conducted by Frank Frazetta Jr. One of her entries took third place and fuelled her desire to pursue 3D art as she sought to add interest and depth to her spectacular body of work.

We interview her for Session 4 of the podcast which you can

The icicles dropped, shattering, to melt. The doors flew open. The windows flew up. The children worked off their wool clothes. The housewives shed their bear disguises. The snow dissolved and showed last summer’s ancient green lawns….”

So started the Martian Chronicles, penned by Ray Bradbury and published in 1950, at a time when Mars was still wildly thought to harbour life and the age of atom power was dominating science’s highways and byways.

Ray Bradbury was one of my favourite authors that I discovered in my teens and he left an enriching poetic mark on my then limited view of science fiction’s fascinating landscape.
With his death this week, I have to owe a few words to this wonderful author so I’ve given a brief review of  the Martian Chronicles in this month’s editorial of issue 18 of 3D Art Direct magazine.… Read the rest
