As one of the sponsors of CGTrader's Space competition, Fox Renderfarm is so honored to have the opportunity to interview the winner of low-poly category in this competition (check the interview with the high-poly winner here ), here are the questions and answers with Ralf Sczepan as below:

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?

Ralf Sczepan: I worked 10 years as programmer mostly for databases and Apps. In my free time I started to create games. I knew about the programming but had to learn building environments and props. I really liked that part of game creation and digged deeper into it.

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.

Fox Renderfarm: Did you participated in any other CG competition besides the CGTrader Space competition?

Ralf Sczepan: No, I did not.

Fox Renderfarm: Would you please share your thoughts for winning the 1st prize in the low-poly category?

Ralf Sczepan: I wasn't expecting that and I am very happy about it.

Fox Renderfarm: Is this work your own most favorite one? If not, which one is?

Ralf Sczepan: The most favorit is always the one I am working on. This is currently a Scifi environment.

I also love to create historic environments. Therefore Victorian Alleys are another one of my favorites.
