1. Ari Weinkle can you tell us about the beginning and how you started to produce such complex artworks? Then which techniques do you use the most? 

I’ve been creating digital artworks for the past ten years or so. Initially I was focused on vector illustrations, but lately I’ve transitioned to a 3D workflow. My primary tools are Maxon Cinema4D, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects.
