What is your name and your current occupation?
My name is David Yarr and I am a 3D artist or say a Generalist.

 

What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
This is a funny question and I like it a lot. Well the craziest job I had was in my early twenties when I was a roof carpenter working up high. Everyday working on that height moving fast on a piece of wood trying to keep the body in balance. The chance of falling down was about 99.9 percent. I myself got close to fall three times but somehow managed to keep it in balance. I guess when you work in hard situations your brain develops some kind of intelligence to avoid accidents. I did that job for two years and still love to try it only once.

 

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
In animation I would say none so far because I work in commercial animation and most of the time the deadlines are so tight you don’t even know to laugh about it or cry about it. But in oil painting I am proud that I painted a big version of Mona Lisa Cried on 9/11. It’s 36″x48″ oil on canvas. The idea behind it was when a plane hit the two twin towers in NY city, the tear of blood started to run down Mona Lisa’s chick in Louver Paris. I still have this big painting.

What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
I never really had any crazy jobs, but in high school I was a telemarketer and during college I did tech support for a dial-up ISP. Both jobs were pretty terrible but they paid better than most part time jobs.

 

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
I think the show I’m most proud of working on was Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends for Cartoon Network. I was introduced to it while in school and loved it, I never imagined I’d be working on it just a few years later. I also really enjoyed working on Slammo & Sloshie for AOL even though the final product didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped.

 

How did you become interested in animation?
I’ve always loved animation, I grew up watching Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, Woody Woodpecker, and I would Continue…

What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
I didn’t have any crazy jobs. However I have a degree in architecture and I have worked in the architecture visualization field for many years before dedicating myself to characters.

 

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
As part of my work I had the opportunity to write several articles/tutorials for magazines like 3D Artist and 3DCreative. These magazines give me a lot of freedom regarding the images I produce, so they end up being very personal. I enjoy this creative freedom a lot and I think that I have produced some of my best characters for these magazines. Among these are the Boxing Kangaroo, the Barrio Guy, General Rhino and Lil’B, for example.  I am also involved in the creation of sculptures for collectible figures and model kits. I am very proud of some of these characters, like the Cello Girl and Sasha, the welder girl.

How did you become interested in animation?
Even though I am not an animator, we all have to agree that animation is a kind of magic. As many people, Disney films had a huge impact on me. Seeing these characters come to life is just.. Continue…

What are some of the crazier jobs you had before getting into animation?
I had not had any crazier jobs before this one. But I made and sold necklaces and I worked as a English-Turkish translator few year ego and worked as software developer that I used love a lot. But In my mind I used to wish deeply to work in an animation company one day about 3d animation but did not decide exactly as a software developer or as a 3d animator. But now I love very much working as an 3d character animator in an animation company.:-)!!!

What are some of your favorite projects you’re proud to have been a part of?
One of my software I developed and wrote totally my self. There was a little girl and a boy ice skating when the user pushed the 23 different figure buttons on the screen. The girl and the boy fluently do the necessary figures after completing the current one. But it was 2 dimensional pictured. I did all the pictures by myself too. But I do not think this is a project that to deserve to be proud of…But this is also for pc not for internet so I have no link of it. Two ice skating 3d animations I have done recently.

Where are you from and how did you get into the animation business?
I am from Ankara, Turkey. I started working on 3d animation and modelling to make
