Adam Tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you, what do you do, and where are you located? Ankit I am Ankit Sagar from India. I’m a 3D architectural visualize, and I began my career in 2014 with Qstudios, a New Delhi based firm. I had great luck to work with a talented team and seniors; they made me a very professional artist. I am very passionate towards my work and I’m always excited to do and learn new things. My main focus is in the arch-viz industry. For me, this is a very relaxing and satisfying field... it is a great world!
Adam What was the workflow behind your latest gallery image? Where did the idea come from? Ankit I always follow the different forums and get inspired by the artists who post their work on those forums. My last project which I called "The Redesign" is so important to me because I did everything in this project, from designing ideas to 3D visualization. I tried to make the design as simple as I could so that everybody could connect to it, and I am very happy to say that this project is appreciated on almost every forum, and I was awarded on some forums. I am very grateful and thankful to everyone who appreciated my project. I will try my best to maintain this standard.
Adam What challenges did the image present? Did you learn something new? Ankit Yes of course, I faced some challenges while creating this project and one of the biggest challenges in front of me was that I had to make a beautiful image with simplicity, and everyone should be attracted to the images. I think I achieved the target by getting some awards on different forums. And yes, I have learned a great thing and that is how to make beautiful spaces with simple designs. This is called beauty in simplicity.
Adam Do you use any other software, either for work or personal projects? Ankit I generally use software such as Autocad, 3ds Max, and Marvelous Designer for fabric simulation, V-Ray and Corona for rendering. Nowadays I am learning Fstorm and the Redshift rendering engine for rendering, and for texturing I am learning Substance Painter. Generally, I always try new software to make my workflow better and faster.
Adam How do you keep your portfolio up-to-date? Any tips? Ankit Speaking honestly, we cannot elaborate ourselves while working on client's projects or any online projects. So, I manage to get some time for my R&D and portfolio images. I do R&D on different software and learn new things on every personal project. And I will say to newcomers to be disciplined and manage some time for themselves to grow and learn new things, to achieve the best work in industry and spread knowledge in the industry.
Adam Are you a member of any social media groups? Any favorite hashtags you check on a daily basis? Ankit Yes, I am member of some social media groups like Corona, V-ray, Fstorm and so on, and I use Behance on a daily basis to connect to the other artists and inspirations. My favorite hashtags are #corona, #V-ray, #Fstorm, and #Substance.
Adam What are your artistic ambitions?
Ankit I am a professional artist and my aim is to deliver the best work to the industry and to my clients. I will try
to improve the quality of my work and never stop to learn new things. I love to do challenging jobs and always seek out challenges.
Adam Who are your favorite artists, traditional or digital, and can you explain why? Ankit Generally, I follow and learn from many artists, but my favorite artists are Marek Denko, Andrew Averkin, Viscorbel, Johannes Lindqvist, and Daniel Reutersward.
Adam What can we expect to see from you next? Ankit I love to do different jobs and plan to do some new things; ideas are in process and soon I will post my new work for everyone, and I hope that everyone likes and appreciates my work again. I am very thankful to all those artists who appreciated and helped motivate me towards new ideas.
