Fox Renderfarm: Hi Ralf, would you please give a short self-introduction?
Ralf Sczepan: My name is Ralf Sczepan. I create Environments and Props for games since about 5 years under the name Triplebrick. I also released the game Vernon's Legacy on steam.
Fox Renderfarm: So how did you step into the CG industry?

Fox Renderfarm: Good for you! What's your favorite 3d software and renderer? Why?
Ralf Sczepan: There is a lot of good software out there and its hard to name a favorite. First I would like to mention Blender. Its an complete 3D creation package and its free. A big thanks to the Blender guys who are making this possible. I also use the Substance Package especially Substance Designer.
Since I am mostly create for real time rendering my favorite renderer are Unity and Unreal Engine.
