My name is Tiago Crisostomo. Currently I am a 3d designer and interior designer by profession and in the next few lines I will tell a little of my story.

As a child I was interested in drawing, scribbling all that paper was to draw what he saw ahead was my favorite hobby. As a teenager I felt that my vocation was for architecture. I remember when I eagerly awaited to pick up a newspaper and the area of real estate sales, looking for designs of future buildings and tried to copy a piece of paper in any of its forms. In 2003 I got my first computer which I shared with my brothers, there began to scribble a few things in the paint that was the only thing that could move. Then I did a computer course in my town and also learned to work with Photoshop to help me later and much time to finish my 3d images.

In August 2006, while searching Google for a program that would help me to make 3D images, I came across SketchUp what would become my passion in the virtual world. Google SketchUp 5 was the first version I used and learned to model testing program because it was not quite up to the idea of seeking tutorials or something, than that. At that time there was not much material in Portuguese and my English was basic. In mid-2007 a neighbor of mine who is a carpenter came to ask me to do electronic models of their designs of kitchens and bathrooms. That was the time when I began to have more interior concepts, measures and functionality of the furniture.

I started getting interested in rendering in the beginning of 2009 through some online tutorials I found in many forums for 3d the way in which I could take a few steps. Then I picked up my old work and practiced what I learned in those tutorials to get a better result but it was not very satisfactory. In June 2009, a renowned architect here in my town was interested in my work and hired me initially to generate the 3D perspective of your projects. In the following month on my birthday my boss gifted me the course of Vray for Sketchup which is produced by Professor Andeciuala Noble. That time I Understand that studying hard and practicing the lessons help me to take a leap in graphics quality of my images.

I'm in this office today as the architecture; designer, 3d interior designer. Usually I spent the day in building and interior detailing projects in SketchUp 7. The program has changed many things in the way of conceiving and executing projects, programs before they were mostly used by Autocad and Arch3d. The CAD continues to be used but also with SketchUp to create 3D images of the future construction of the clients. We create facades, cuts and everything else you need to drill deeper in AutoCad. And when it comes to interior design, let's cut to the paper and there are SketchUp tested colors, textures, layout of furniture and lighting; generate prospects for electronic customer appreciation.

Since I started working with 3D and already felt the need to pay special attention to the quality of modeling in the vast universe of 3D Warehouse I am always looking for good modeling components to compose my shots. To differentiate my work from others, to develop my own Opit blocks to compose 3D environments, which in part provides free warehouse, the other part is for the exclusive use of mine just to get that unique identity in my work. I always advise new users to invest in the SketchUp modeling above all, no matter which tool you will use in completing the work. Often I spend a lot of time on websites and blogs looking for architecture and design of decoration interiors differentiated in order to recreate them in the 3D world to make my surroundings, it makes their work stand out from the others, a basic example of this is that you know when one is done in 3D Max when he sees Evermotion blocks, and almost everyone who uses this software uses this library of blocks, there are few professionals who use exclusive blocks to compose their own work, and this makes all the difference.

I thank you from the heart given space here to tell my brief professional history. A big hug to all!
