We are pleased to present a stunning example of digital art made by an artist with great potential – MArch (NBU) Associate CG Artist Ralitza Kermenliyska. Despite her young age Ralitza has a lot of experience in the digital art world. Specializing in CGI and 3D, Raltza is currently working as an Associate CG Artist at the REDVERTEX studio. She has collaborated on the realization of projects that have received official recognition. Her skill led her to travel and work with large companies such as Emaar, Meraas, CallisonRTKL, Broadway Malyan, tp benett etc. Never tired of exploring and always ready to face new work adventures, this artist still has much to say.
What do you do at REDVERTEX?
– I am an Associate CG Artist and a Team leader of 5. 😊
Describe yourself in 3 words?
– Emotional, cheerful and quite stubborn.
When did you have the first “symptom” of your passion for CGIs?
– I’ve been studying art since I was 13 and discovered architecture quite late, but fell in love with it instantly. Creating functional art it’s just brilliant, and about four years ago I found an even better way to combine my two passions together – ArchViz.
What exactly does a CGIs Artist do?
– Hmmm, long story short – we create scenarios that do not exist yet and sell dreams.
What is the primary fuel for your work? Where do you draw inspiration?
– We all spend too much time in front of our screens, so I try to get out more and get inspired by what surrounds me: theater, art/design exhibitions, a walk around the city, the people around me, books, music, movies etc. The Old Masters (painting) are a great source of inspiration as well. They can teach you a lot about composition, colours, lighting and mostly how to create an emotion using those.
Is your creativity or technique more important in your work?
– Creativity, for sure.
What are the positive and negative sides of being a CG artist today?
– Negative: Long hours in front of the computer. Back pain. 😊
– Positive: You get to work with and meet great and extremely creative people every day (both clients and coworkers) and take part in some of the most interesting architectural projects around the globe.
What qualities an artist needs to be a pro?
– You just need to have the heart for it and endless passion, of course.
Do you want to give some advice to the girls who are investing in realizing themselves as artists in the CG industry?
– A few years back this was a guys only club. It isn’t like this anymore so keep it up, girls.
Below, you will find a few projects Ralitza has completed at the REDVERTEX Studio.
