Thank you for sharing your journey so far with our readers. Let’s begin: please introduce yourself and let us know how long ago your journey started? What drew you to art? Any early influences?

Mohsen

As a cliché, it was something from a long time ago, when I drew something on paper and everyone said you're doing something different. But only being different from other people's opinions is not enough, so I went through the process and started to learn and practice since I found myself in 3D art. I'm a hardworking architect and interior designer who is making 3D images for clients now. I may love to grow and do something better every day. My art mostly is some inspiration that describes my mood and feeling at that moment. Maybe if you go through what I have done so far you will find out it is going to become more mature, but the techniques I learn are a big climax in my progress.

Will you come back one day?  All I remember of this nature and this beauty is our love story,  the love between us made this place even more beautiful,  but now all beauty has been hidden in the mist.

Do you still have any early artwork? We’d love to see your early work, be they digital or traditional. How do you feel about these works now?

Mohsen

From time to time, besides my commercial projects, I do some personal artworks. The soul of an artist is alive only with his creations. It's not easy to do some real satisfying art in commercial projects, so I think it's even necessary to bring your feelings and your arts into an image from time to time. For me, my latest artworks were influenced by this lockdown in the pandemic through quarantine, which was not easy to live with, but I think the lovely voice of the river does not exist without the gravels and stones on its way. Besides, an artwork for me is a work that when I look each time, I feel something, either a mood or a message, a guide or a secret.

What training or learning did you do in those beginning stages? Could you see your progression?

Mohsen

It’s been a long time, maybe I don’t even remember very well. but as far as I remember I tried to do something better than what I was doing in my next artwork, and it was pushing me forward through progress and getting better. But I followed any tutorial or article which could help me, or I could find a new tip and trick. I was also following specific software to move parallel with technology.

Can we see some of your progression artwork? Where did you think you were improving? And where did you need to improve upon?

Mohsen

For sure, as I always love to do landscapes and environments, you can see the progress through two of my personal works in a couple of years. The first one (Forest villa) with the second one (Hrensko) which you can see more of here. I think in terms of composition, the variations of the species, making mood, scattering, lighting, and color grading, and the most important one, managing the scene, is something which I feel I had good progress from over these years. Also, I think my attitude has remained within photorealism which I liked a lot, because mainly I'm not into unrealistic art with fake and unknown materials.

Were you always happy with what you produced, or was there a turning point where you thought; “This is it, I’ve made it!”?

Mohsen

Yes, actually, when I go back through my older 3D work I always find some mistakes which in my opinion could be so much better, but maybe in that moment because of too much hard work and time spent, I didn’t want to still spend more time on them and I left those images as they were. Or I remember in some cases I was following some wrong inspirations from other artists which effected my work, but I think the artworks I do now are the sum of all mistakes and learning in those years.

Which piece are you most proud of, and why?

Mohsen

Actually, for me it's too much to be proud of my artworks, I never think of that. But if I want to name one artwork that affects a lot of my professional career I can name the dark-side of the room series. For me, it was a kind of big, intense feeling in that artwork regarding that loneliness in the environment, and every time I look at the images I still feel the same. Most of the time, even though my art gets a lot of attention and support, they are not like something that I can be proud of – also, that’s the reason I try to move forward and improve my skills.

What are you still working on improving (if anything) - or have you reached a point of high consistency? Do you have any tips for keeping it fresh?

Mohsen

Every single day I try to learn something new, really it's for me a slight edge, so I never stop looking around to learn new techniques. I think I am good in lighting, actually in making mood, and also driving the story and giving a depth of feeling – not to be proud!

What advice would you give to any of our readers who are just beginning their journey now?

Mohsen

Welcome to the most inspiring and most frustrating industry in the world. I hope you never give up and never stop dreaming big. From the frustration I don’t mean this industry is bad but, if you are not hard-working enough you will soon leave.

3dtotal

What can we expect to see from you next?

Mohsen

Some eye-catching projects. I try to develop my abilities through new technology and make this whole process easier and more understandable and easier to use, so the future will be brilliant for sure. Also, I want to thank 3dtotal for all the support and for giving us this opportunity to be in touch with each other.
