Hello and welcome to another exciting issue of 3D Artist. We’ve worked hard to ensure it’s packed full of awesome inspiration, practical tutorials and all the latest community and industry news.
First up we’ve got part one of our ‘Create a muscle car’ tutorial by Artem Volchik – this vehicle is badass and his guide is not to be missed. For the Cinema 4D users out there, Tomas Opasinski is here to explain how to master abstract sculpture with everyday objects; meanwhile, Andrzej Kuziola talks you through personalising stock models from Poser to create a demonic creature.
If you’re struggling with texturing then our beginners’ guide from the guys at 3DTA might really help you out; it also comes with a 26-minute companion video on the cover disc.
In the workshop you’ll find a Masterclass in project mapping, plus guides to tattooing game characters, 3ds Max plug-in RailClone and an explanation of linear colour space. We’ve also got a mini tutorial on using MultiScatter, how to add realistic shadows in post and creating an organic abstract image using 3D fractals.
Features-wise, Lynette catches up with 3D artist Jelmer Boskma to find out how he broke into Hollywood. We also focus on indie filmmaking, speaking with Gareth Edwards of Monsters fame, Linh Mai (currently working on his first independent film project The Last Cause), as well as Grzegorz Jonkajtys and Ali Aboud. The piece provides a great insight into the process and offers some excellent tips and advice for artists keen to create their own film or short.
There’s all this and absolutely loads more besides. 3D Artist is available to buy from all good newsagents, supermarkets and online at the official Imagine Publishing store. iPad, iPhone and iPod touch users can purchase digital versions of the magazine through the iTunes store here.
