Interview with: Shahrukh Shaikh
– What do you think we should know about you?
Basically, i started learning archviz just to earn money so that i can fulfill my dreams of living this life. But time changes and so do people and this change bring my passion of earning money to my passion of learning more and more. It all started a year ago when i joined an architect firm where i got a chance to improve myself and my work. I learnt how principle of design can change your way of designing and this could make a difference in making my views more real than what i used to do before. Now every single day i learn from my mistakes and i try to improve my work better and better than before.

It’s not two year. It has been 3 years. I always set new limits and challenges in every project to develop the skills faster and that is how I achieve it within 3 yrs.

My main focus is to be master in one and then move to other. So when i started with archviz i was doing interior and slowly moved to exterior.
– You are from …… , do you live currently there?
I am from Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India.
– And something really important that we would like to ask you, why there are so many good designers 3D in your country?
India is a place where artists are born and has given many in every sector.
– Have you been hard the beginnings?
I think its not only hard for me but for every artist. Cg industry always seems to be a difficult but creative field. It requires lots of patience and as it is well said that patience is a key to success.
– Do you think it is important to have a marketing strategy on the Internet?
Yes, social networking site’s are playing an important role for daily business. It is really helping many people to showcase their work on starting stage.
– We can not stop being surprised when you have told us that you do not have a website to publish your portfolio, your experience, etc … how can a freelance live without this tool?
As I said social networking sites are enough to build a contact and showcase your work. Every single person use facebook, behance etc. and hence never felt like making an individual website.
– What advice could you give to 3d designers that are starting?
Patience and Dedication for work. It is important to have a knowledge in Photography and its fundamentals .Try to always work with reference and try to get reference from photographs not from the 3d renders.
