Few words about me. I know, that this is not a typical page of 3D Artist, and I didn`t think, that this page will become
this kind of diary. So those, who are not interested in me and my life, please don`t read.
READ MORE ABOUT THE FRAUD OF METLGRAFIX (RICHARD AND REBECCA LANGSMITH
ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE
My name is Patrik Marek. I was born on 9. August 1980 in Uherske Hradiste,
Czech Republic. At the moment I`m working as a 3D Artist in Brno (Czech
Republic). I started working with computer graphic in 1994 and it was
with 3D Studio Relase 4.
Since that moment ,I was very interested in modelling. I tried to made
various things. But most of all, I loved cars, and I wanted to model some
of them. But at the begining It was very difficult to made such exact
shapes, so I started with modelling of military vehicles ( various tanks,
Four years ago, I started working in 3D Studio MAX 2, which seems to be
more difficult, than classic 3DS R4, but It wasn`t. Now I`m working in
3DS MAX 3.1 and 3DS MAX 4.2
For modeling I`m using 3D Studio MAX 3.1 and Rhinoceros, which seems to
be good for Industrial Design. I am also learning Mental Ray, which is
really good render engine. My best renders such as LAV or Lancer are made
with Mental Ray so look to my gallery.
In the last two months I`ve learned Rhinoceros, my Lancer
took me a planty of time, but I am very sutisfied with the final model.
Now I`m working on Subaru Impreza WRC - I`m going to make a collection
of WRC Cars, so In the future, I will make Ford Focus WRC, Toyota Corolla,
and finaly Skoda Octavia, becouse It is a Rally Car from my homeland.
I`m modeling vehicles as a custom job.
So If you cannot deal with sth. Maybe I could help. :) The Company I am working
for is METLGRAFIX
so don`t forget to look there. I made military stuff for them, but, I
don`t forget to work on cars, which are my greatest hobby.
I started account on TurboSquid. TS is a web, where you put your artworks, models, tutorials for sale.
You could either buy or sell. There are a lot of categories, so you could easily fing, what do you need.
I put there so far Lincoln Limousine and Lincoln Towncar. Soon I`ll finish a Lincoln Police car. I`m planning
to put there mainly my racing cars, so hope, that I will sell some of them. I`m planning to make some collections
there, like Military Hummers, World Rally Cars, DTM e.g.
Year 2002 was really great for me. I moved definitly to Brno, where I
work. I bought a new computer, so I can work home. I also stared with
finalrender, which is in my oppinion better then Mental Ray, becouse
It uses HDRImages (High Dynamic Range), which are really great for GI
(Global Illumination). I`ve also started some new projects, which I will
soon put here. But at the end of year, I became ill. I hope It will be
good soon. I`m home for 2 months so far. But, at least I have time to
work. I know, I have to relax, but, I have everytime many thing, I want
I finished Ford Focus WRC, so It`s first Car of a big collection : World
Rally Cars, I`m planning to make. It will contain Ford Focus WRC, Mitsubishi
Lancer Evo VI, Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VII, Skoda Octavia WRC, Subaru Impreza
`99, Subaru Impreza 2001, Toyota Corolla, and maybe Seat Cordoba WRC.
This whole stuff will be for download on Turbosquid.
Haven`t updated the pages for a long long time.. but
there`s not enough time to do so. Btw. I`m planning new pages so it`s
not necessary to Update.
But I wanted to announce something, to warn all the freelancers. The company
are CHEATERS who are not paying freelancers
for their job. They owe me about $2,500.00 and I cannot get the money
out of them. It`s a pitty, becouse I enjoyed working with them. The other
problem with this company (the people behind are Rebecca Langsmith and
Richard Langsmith) is selling MY MODELS on various servers.
So If you are about to work with either Richard Langsmith or METLGRAFIX..
beaware. If I will stop one customer from getting cheated.. It will be
succes for me, that the company Metlgrafix haven`t cheated anyone else.
So If you can, please write it to other freelancers, who might can be
cheated as well.
