Hi, my name is Matej and I'm an aspiring CG artist from Slovenia. I currently specialize in still photo-realistic 3D renders.

When I started to learn CG in summer 2009 I opted to go the open source way. I wasn't entirely sure about this decision, which it seemed risky to me at the time. Deciding between the expensive but proved proprietary way and between the free & open-source but unknown way, was not easy. More so because you can spend months and years learning software, such as modeling tools or painting programs.

Now when I look back I'm satisfied about my decision as the open-source communities deliver such outstanding stuff and allow me to be creative for free. The least I can do is give them credit, though I try also to help back where and when I can. Though there are some licensed programs in my toolset, I currently mostly use FOSS programs:

- Blender for modeling and compositing
- GIMP for texturing, post-production and compositing
- Yafaray and Octane* for rendering
- Luminance HDR (Qtpfsgui) for tone-mapping
- Inkscape as support drawing tool

Everything of course runs on Linux ;-) (Ubuntu mostly The king is dead, long live Linux Mint!)

yea... it's been a while...

I've messed up a bit in the last months (with life in general) and haven't checked DA in a long time. All the 3D work I did was of commercial nature.

But now I'm full speed ahoy, and expect more stuff from me! Thanks for still checking, hope you're doing nice & well :)

Im doing fine! I went to bologna recently I am going to be represented by an agency! (I almost went to slovenia in this small trip!)

With Cghub gone sometime I turn back for DA, but there are some new cg websites around! like artstation and drawcrowd, but I haven't joined them yet

I know how hard it is, you need to save time to personal projects and a personal portfolio, and still have time to have a job to pay your bills!

I saw the flag! that rendering is perfect! keep up the good work!

Great rendering skills! I thought they were photos at first. That deserves an add to the watch list.
