articles for 3d and 3d digital art
An awesome music video by Future Deluxe http://www.futuredeluxe.co.uk/ of a surreal puppet dream and featuring the song This by Modeselektor and Thom Yorke. The video is beautiful to watch and features some great composting and motion graphics with what I believe is using Adobe After effects and Trap code plugins.

As the makers of Zbrush, Pixlogic has released a free and easy to use 3D sculpting software named Sculptris. Sculptris is basically a stripped down version of Zbrush but it has enough options and flexibility to make is useful and a joy to use. The interface is nicely designed and even the most novice computer user would feel comfortable with creating sculpts in no time. Starting out with a round ball of clay or an imported OBJ model Scuptris allows you to push, pull, and manipulate objects like clay in the real world. Sculptris also has 3D painting, texturing, Auto UV mapping and material options. Just in case that’s not enough there is a GoZ option which seamlessly lets you use Zbrush in conjuction with Sculptris.
The first thing I need to say is that Marek Denko’s has been leaving me aw for some years with his art but when I saw his retrospective reel it absolutley blew my mind. Not only being an amazing 3D Max artist, Marek has a real talent in bringing his work to life with some great compositing and shot work. At first glance this video may seem more of a compositing reel using some live action elements mixed with 3D but after some research on Marek’s website http://marekdenko.net/ almost everything is done with 3d Max and V-Ray. Please enjoy and I hope you feel as inspired as I do to hopefully create a Demo Reel of this caliber some day.
Inkscape is a fully equipped vector art program which just so happens to be open source which makes it free to anyone who wants to use it. A hardcore Adobe Illustrator user might miss some of the bells, whistles and cosmetic features of Illustrator but besides that Inkscape is completely capable of creating high quality designs and artwork.

As you can see from the above image Inkscape has a slightly dated interface but the tool layout and options menus are nicely layed out and easy to use, and would be familiar to any Adobe Illustrator user.
