Wrong Easter Egg ©Maged Atef
- Maged Atef
- From: Egypt
- Caption: Someone was surprised by this big egg, so they collected and painted it. To their surprise, it turns out to be a dinosaur's egg that just hatched, so they run for their life.
Fox Renderfarm: Hi Maged, thank you so much for accepting our interview! Could you briefly introduce yourself?
Maged: I am Maged Atef from Egypt. I am 24 years. I love art, cartoon dubbing, and English.
Fox Renderfarm: How do you feel about winning the 3rd place in the FGT3D “Easter Egg” Challenge?
Maged: Feels awesome, as I have always been suffering self-confidence issues, and it's the first time l officially compete with others rather than only making personal projects. And came the third, yay me.
Fox Renderfarm: What’s the inspiration behind the award-winning work?
Maged: I love being different, that's why I thought of going for something like "wrong" easter egg, rather than a normal easter egg project.
Fox Renderfarm: How long did it take to finish the artwork?
Maged: 5-6 hours on several days.
Fox Renderfarm: What software and plugins did you use to finish the artwork?
Maged: Blender 2.82 - ZBrush - Substance Painter.
Fox Renderfarm: Technically and visually, which is your favorite part of this work? Why?
Maged: I guess the nest, it was the first time I used Blender hair particle system, l love how it worked, and I also like how it looks.
Fox Renderfarm: Have you met any difficulty in the creation? How did you overcome it?
Maged: Some issues creating the grass, but youtube really helped.
Fox Renderfarm: When and how did you encounter CG?
Maged: It's a long story, but basically I studied English then tried dubbing cartoons, really loved it but found very few local cartoons in Egypt, then decided to learn to create my own cartoon. Wish me luck.
Fox Renderfarm: Could you briefly tell us the story of your educational and work experience along your CG journey?
Maged: Surprisingly, never been into working in CG art. Yes, I am still learning till now. Started almost a year ago, but was struggling in different courses, and was on the right track only three or four months ago.
Fox Renderfarm: What do you do to improve your professional skills?
Maged: Watch more tutorials and practice.
Fox Renderfarm: Any other things you wanna share with CG enthusiasts?
