I’m Steven and I’ve been a graphic designer/illustrator for 12 years.
In my prior life, I was a medical and PR photographer. When that dried up, I went to school and learned graphic design and animation. It seemed like a natural extension as a visual artist.
My current position is graphic artist and illustrator for a small company. I’m am the illustration department. We make repair manuals. My job is to take the client’s 3Ds and turn them into line art illustrations. It’s a challenge, but I really enjoy my work.
I’m joining this forum in order to find inspiration and education. It’s hard for me to stay up on the latest tech and procedures. I hope that this will provide an avenue for me to learn new concepts. When I run into problems and I need a place to bounce ideas around. Sometimes, I have issues with 3DS Max and getting the right details. I primarily use the aforementioned 3D Studio Max with the Illustrate! plug-in, Illustrator and Photoshop.
