Hey guys, and please welcome László Magyar from LaczaDesign. He is a good friend of mine, but more importantly, an uprising digital artist who creates astonishing abstract artworks. I gathered a couple of interesting questions and he was kind enough to answer all of them, and provide you with samples of his inspiring art pieces.
Q: Please introduce yourself in a few words!
Welcome, everyone! My name is László Magyar, I’m 27 years old and I’ve been a digital graphic artist for more than a year.
Q: Where did it all begin?
It all started 2 years ago. I can’t remember the exact reason why I wanted to become a graphic artist, but I do remember that I came accross a couple of stunning 3D images. I really liked how they looked, and I said to myself I want to create pictures like these. At first, it was very difficult, of course, since I had no idea how to start and what to do. Furthermore, my ex-mainstream computer had its limits and so I couldn’t render impressive models.
Q: What programs and applications do you use in your work?
The programs I use for my every day work are very varying. I use Adobe Illustrator for creating logos. Illustrator is a good choice because I can export the logo to a 3D modelling application and make a 3D version of the original 2D logo. I use Maxon Cinema 4D for three-dimensional modelling such as texts, simple shapes and basically anything that can be modelled. 95 percent of my pictures contain some elements that were made with Cinema 4D. And of course, I use Adobe Photoshop for all the finishing touches, that make my pictures come to life.
Q: Where do you get your inspiration for your art?
I gather inspiration from a whole lot of different media, such as my environment, video games and other people’s work. Basically anything that catches my attention and touches my soul in the first momentum.
Q: Do you find your work hard?
Well, sometimes it’s not easy. In case of a client-work, for example, I have to suit the requirements of the client, which may interfere with my thoughts and ideas. There are times when the whole process takes only two or three days, because the clients are satisfied with my result instantly.
Q: What achievements have you earned so far in your career?
By this time, I struggled myself to a level where I am mentioned as a recognized designer. I appeared in several well-known websites’ collections like Abduzeedo, Digital Art Secrets, Paranoias, Inspire First and What An Art. But the biggest appreciation has been a presence in the yearly Desktopography collection in 2012.
Q: How do you see your future in the field?
I truly hope that there are plenty more years ahead of me. I really love this job, because that’s what makes me happy. I hope I can stand out even more from the crowd, and become a unique designer in the field. I dream big.
Q: Would you recommend our readers to become digital artists?
Of course I do! But only for those who have the patience and the ambition to struggle themselves through the starting difficulties, just like I did. It’s not easy to begin, but in the end, it will all worth it! Creativity is a must in this field, and also it’s nice if you have a hardcore machine to bear all the calculations.
Thank you, Lacza! All the best to you!
Thanks for the opportunity!
