Bruno Carazza: Humility and Artistry
If there is one word that would summarize Mr. Bruno Carazza’s character as an artist, it would be “humble”. When asked for an advice to artists living in these times, he said,
…not fall in love with his own work, never be arrogant, and always try to help the community.
This statement alone warrants our admiration for Mr. Carraza’s craft. And when you see his online portfolio, you’ll realize that not only does he have the right attitude as a professional artist, he actually has the talent for it.
Xeno Creatives is glad to present our brief but insightful interview with Mr. Bruno Carazza:
Xeno Creatives (XC): We understand that with just about any craft, passion takes precedence. In your case, how did it start becoming a passion? Would we be right in assuming that you consider it a “calling” as a lot of your contemporaries do?
Bruno Carazza (BC): It started to become a passion when I was about 10 years old when I saw the drawings of Pixar and DreamWorks for the first time.
XC: Was there ever an art piece (digital or otherwise) or artist who served as a catalyst for your involvement in the craft? When did you get involved fully in the 3D industry?
BC: My biggest inspirations as an artist were Alex Oliver, Rafael Grassetti, Leonardo da Vinci, Burne Hogarth, Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, and Aaron Blaise.
XC: Now that you’re an active part of the industry, would you say you have pegged a solid place in it?
BC: I intend to get clients and even work for big companies in the world of collectibles, but I haven’t got big clients yet as I had only been promoting my work for a short time.
XC: How does your day look like in production?
BC: I love to produce unique and different projects. I have a lot of creativity and I have worked with art my whole life. I love modelling my characters in 3D.
XC: What are the common challenges a 3D artist like you encounters day-in, day-out in a project?
BC: The biggest challenge is the “time” of production, because sometimes it takes 1 to 3 months to make a complex art and the work comes out with quality.
XC: We have had the pleasure of seeing your works online. Suffice it to say, we were impressed by them. But among your works, do you have favorite pieces? If so, what would these be and why? Also, what would you consider your biggest or most exciting project to date?
BC: My biggest project is “The Elf and the Darkness”, but, I’m already producing an even more ambitious project; I try to exceed myself every day.
XC: If you were to market yourself what would you highlight as your edge?
BC: I think I have the aptitude and the appropriate education to be an Art Director. I always try to help my community through conducting artistic drawing classes.
XC: If you weren’t a 3D artist today, what would you be working as?
BC: If I were not working as a 3D artist, I would probably be giving drawing lessons and drawing for some clients.
XC: What is your message to other artists especially in these challenging times?
BC: I would advise the artist to value his art, always try to excel, not fall in love with his own work, never be arrogant, and always try to help the community.
