Name: Hipólito Alcobendas
Nick on the web: EXtraTerToidE
I was born in Wiesbaden, Germany, in 1975, to the six year-old age, I came to Spain (to the region of Extremadura) and it was love at first sight, I love Spain.
I began in the world of the CG seven years ago, in principle in the design and development web, later in the graphic design 2D and five years ago by chance discovered the world of 3D, and… it was at first sight also love ;)
This chance owes it to my professor Luís García Calle, one of the best architectural and engineering modeller that know.
Another of my big passions is the photographs, mainly the nature photograph and the portrait, the good ones instantaneous for my, they are fascinating, the photograph, has become trained many things that then I apply in my 3D scenes, mainly about the light, and perspective, composition…
A day, I hope live with my 3D work (in Spain, USA, Germany, or in the South Pole ;) today I have to work in other things to win me the life, although I know that is it the all artists 3D dream, therefore I will continue fighting to improve my quality awaiting that it interests him to hire me to somebody, you know boys, if you need a good illuminator, modeller or texture artist, you don't doubt to send me an e-mail.
In the last times, I learning advanced character modelling (in 3DS MAX and ZBrush) and character animation, I hope in little time to expose my works on modelling and characters animation in 3dallusions.
I love video games (not all, only the best), my favourite video games are: God of war, Black, Quake IV (I’m impatient for the launching of Quake Wars), Call of Duty I and II, I like all the video games that have graphic impressive and realists, I don't like the games that not even have quality in the presentation videos.
Although use a lot my photographic camera, but one of the things that more I like it’s to make scenes 3D 100% synthetic, the completely synthetic scenes have a special value for my, mainly if I’m able to give them a high realism.
A greeting to all, and work very hard, the 3D don't know the rest neither the pity with the average artist.
Affectionately, Hipólito Alcobendas.
