Artist's Comments
About Me: 
My name is Mania Carta, CG Generalist/ Technical Artist based in Tokyo, I have been using Blender since 5 month, and then it became my main workflow for any project I want to make.

About "I Am Waw:"
Regarding "I Am Waw" that I made recently, I really don’t know how it came. I wanted to achieve realism in Blender using Eevee renders but also make something Waw that I've never done before. That’s why I called her Waw. So I decided to make a Chinese title and also created her an earing design as symbol of her name (哇) because China is well known country for development and technology and then I got the idea to make her as digital real-time cyberpunk girl. I wanted to see how I far I can push Blender's real-time rendering engine. And I think I achieved what I am looking for but still I am developing more techniques to use for other future projects. Blender also is very powerful with Cycle Engine. With some previous projects I was using, with E-cycles, render engines like Setagaya and Luna Lankastar.  I got surprised to see how amazing it’s fast, but then I decided to focus on realism in real-time rendering just like Unreal Engine, and Blender was the way to go.

As a character artist I am focusing on realism without the need of Path tracing renders such as Cycle, Octane, Arnold, Redhift, ect.

I use all those render engines but I wanted to focus on real-time rendering.

I know it’s really hard but I will try to develop techniques to make the real-time render the same as Cycles and other render engines.

Whenever Blender gets released, new things arrive and it continues to amaze me: the fluidity and ease of use ... I really don’t know how I can describe it, but I can only give a big applause and thanks to the whole team of Blender in Amsterdam for their hard work and making such tool not only free but most user-friendly in the hand of the artist.The freedom of creating anything is endless. And I also like to thank Mr. Ton Roosendaal.

Making something free to everyone is something only geniuses can think of and Mr. Ton Roosendaal is one of them.
