Designer Interview: Ubaid El-Ahyar Alyafizi

Tell us about your role and what you do.

Hello guys, my name is Ubaid El-Ahyar Alyafizi, owner of The Halal Design Studio, the small studio where I am. I work from home as a full-time freelancer, 3D illustrator and graphic designer. Currently I prefer to make 3D artworks more than 2D artworks. And I'm interested in new things, I'm going to try to learn things related to 3D artwork so that it can improve my abilities.  

What is your primary source of inspiration, and what is your creative process in creating these awesome, fun designs? How would you describe your style?

I used to find inspiration around 3D design on Instagram by following Instagram accounts that are in the field of 3D design, especially those with a good portfolio. And sometimes I look for inspiration through Google search or Pinterest. And for style design, honestly I still do not have a patent design style, I still need to learn more so that later it appears characteristic in my artwork.

What type of software and design tools do you use?

I use Blender to create 3D artwork. There are various 3D software, but I prefer to use Blender because it is very powerful and of course FREE FOREVER. And after the rendering process, sometimes I use Affinity Photo to convert the render file into a PSD file.

Yes, it was very helpful in accelerating the sale of my artwork. Alhamdulillah, as days go by my asset sales are increasing. Big thanks to Iconscout!
