Have missed the works from a talented 3D artist whose handle was or is XFOZZBOUTE. Has he been posting lately, under a new name, or has anyone heard from him lately?

    XFozzboute stopped posting a couple of years ago. I haven't seen him on any site, nor on Facebook in years. I'm afraid he may be gone. The last thing I saw him put up was on Alt-Trek two years ago.

    Honestly, I hope he is okay. I miss him.

    I also fondly remember him and hope he's OK. Hopefully his health didn't take a turn for the worse. He survived cancer several years ago. I hope he didn't have a relapse.

    The last time he posted something was two years ago. I just checked his DevArt page. It's still up.

    Normally, I'd say that no news is good news, but in the case of a cancer survivor, now I'm worried too. He's not the only one who's disappeared. I was wondering what happened to Evil_Genuis_180 a while back (he's back, obviously), and MadeinJapan1988 along with all of his stuff disappeared a while back with practically no warning.

    Hopefully, it's just a combination of life and burnout, although I get not liking the fact that we seem to have no way of getting in touch with him to find out.

    Maybe there could be a Memorial thread listing those that have passed?

    I've added memorial badges to the profiles I've been able to verify myself, but I'm a little reluctant to make a comprehensive list for privacy reasons.

    I'll have to put instructions in my funeral stuff to leave a final message to my WIP thread. I'll need to make up some stuff worth reading.

    Have you actually really looked on his FB-page?
    Just a few posts after the latest birthday-wishes, I saw a post from 8 February 2021, by a friend of his called Tim Crane.
    "For those of you that don't know, my dear friend, songwriter, and Shaman extraordinaire has passed away. Rob was one of a kind and will be sorely missed."

    No I glanced at the March 3, 2020 post, I didn't look at the rest.

    I don't do Facebook, so thank you for posting this. While it's sad news, it's still important to know what happened to our friend Xfozzboute, AKA Rob Wilson. I was afraid this was the case, as it was never like him to simply vanish for a large amount of time from the CGI community. Even when he was battling cancer years ago, he still posted updates on that and his work. I agree that he was one of a kind and will definitely be missed.

    Our friend Rob will be missed. I for one truly enjoyed looking at his work. You always found some detail that you overlooked the first time.

    Thank you for confirming this. I'd been wondering for a long time. He'll be missed.

    Just to advise you all: there is a person who used Rob best known photo and created a fake profile on FB. He is sending friend requests and trying to catch your money. Be carefull.
    Here, a print where I made a convesation till to prove he is a fake.

    I thought he was probably gone. I'm really quite sorry to find out that it is true.
