1. Zozulinskyi  

Tell us about yourself and what you do?

I am Oleksandr Zozulinskyi and I’m from Ukraine. I have always been interested in physics and I graduated from University with a degree in physics and astronomy. In Ukraine, physics teachers do not earn very much, so I looked for other ways to earn money. My friend suggested that I try my hand at stock photography, so I gave it a go and then moved into 3D graphics.

What do you love about your work and why?

The freedom to create whatever I want and being able to turn fantasy into reality.

Any advice for other Author’s working in your field?

Keep fighting and you will win! In dark times, bright people are clearly visible.

Thank you Envato for the opportunity to earn money. Now I understand that quitting physics and doing 3D graphics was absolutely the right decision.

What do you love about your work?

The best thing about this work is the creative freedom. You can do what you want; the only judge is a customer who likes your work and buys it or doesn’t like it and doesn’t buy it. It’s simple.

It’s a wonderful warm feeling when someone from the other side of the Earth finds something beautiful and useful in things that you have made with your own hands.


What other Envato Authors inspire you?

Pretty much all of the other Authors. Envy is fuel for creativity. When you see stunning work and you have no idea how it was made, it’s a personal challenge to learn something new and grow your skills.

Any advice for other Author’s working in your field?

Be envious, be free, and don’t stop experimenting and making new things. Imagination is an endless source. Stay passionate about your work. Love what you do and do what you love. Stay independent and find your very own style.
