20 Photorealistic Aircraft Renderings: Take A Flight To Artificial Reality

Look, it's a Superman! No, it's a bird! No, it's a plane!

Planes are something that always attracts people attention, as it is always fascinating to see a huge steel machine flying. Since the period of Renaissance and incredible inventions of Leonardo da Vinci, people tried to find out how they could fly. You know the rest - The Wright Brothers, their experiments, the beginning of the aviation and it went just in a snap.

Aircraft will always be something amazing as people are not meant to fly naturally. When something incredible like ability to put man in the air is created by human, it is always a win for the whole humanity against the nature. And what about the future? Well, we can only guess how the aircraft will look later. However, there are ways to express the imagination in a very realistic form. Yes, we are back with photorealism again.

This time we present you 25 photorealistic renderings of aircraft from past, present and future. Don't forget that you may create this magic yourself with models offered by great designers on CGTrader, such as Dreamscape and others. Enjoy!

25 Photorealistic Landscape 3D Renderings: If Only Those Places Existed

After freezing cold winter finally came long waited spring. Just several steps separate us from the summertime all of us are dreaming about. Summer season for some of us means laying at the beach on the seaside, for others – riding a bike to work, going to the village for a rest, gathering berries in the forest, travelling abroad: climbing the mountains or maybe visiting exotic places.

Unfortunately, those several steps are still separating us from the warmest season through the year. Therefore, today one of the options what can be done is watching pictures of the extraordinary or maybe just simple, but extremely cozy places. Those places, which we will guide you through, are created by computer graphics artists. They cannot be found on our planet, but who says that traveling in your dreams is not traveling?

Architectural 3D Renderings That Look Too Real To Be True

Architecture is the art and science of designing buildings. Nonbuilding structures are considered as architecture as well. You probably know that, right? Since the very beginning of the professional architecture a lot of magnificent projects were fulfilled. It always amazes to see a structure which could be called a masterpiece. To see the astonishing structures by themselves – this is one of the reasons why tourists travel around the world and take thousands of pictures of churches, palaces or skyscrapers.

This is where all the fun begins. It is way more different to have a picture in front of your eyes than it is to look at a building itself. Have you ever though for yourself – does everything that you can see in a picture really exist? Of course, you did – nobody can be sure about what they see in this age when almost everything could be edited with Photoshop or any other software for image editing.

Well, hold yourselves – we have some architectural views which you will hardly believe to be not real. These are some of the most photorealistic architectural 3D renderings on the planet. Fasten your seatbelts, open your eyes and let’s take a ride through this digital and artificial reality!

Welcome to The Mind-Trap: 35 Most Photorealistic 3D Renderings

Welcome to The Mind-Trap: 35 Most Photorealistic 3D Renderings

Technology has turned the world upside down. It facilitates daily lives and substitutes our perception of the reality. The things that years ago seemed to be impossible suddenly became a constant. In 1936 BBC began transmitting the world's first public regular hi-definition service, in 1950 television was recognized as the main medium for molding public opinion, afterwards it has become a must-have domestic appliance and did not leave this position for a quite long time.

Back then people were thinking that technologists achieved a lot and there is nowhere to move forward. Then the internet came to shake the whole world. Most companies cannot work these days if the office loses internet connection. Technology is still improving. Where the hell it can go further? Today 3D printers are commercially available in the market. Do you need a detail for the household? Would you like to get a unique wedding ring? Do you have a genius idea of cheap prosthesis production? Just create or download a 3D model and print it out!

Until you get used to it, it is always immensely hard to believe. Even when you start believing, you are not sure: is it real or fake? It is actually both. Computer graphic artists are up to completely blow our minds. Instead of going to the city streets and capturing cityscapes, landscapes or portraits with professional cameras, they decide to generate the same image, using 3D design software. And hurrah! Guess, they say, is it real or fake? We keep guessing, while surfing all around the virtual world. Damn,sometimes you sit for 5 minutes and: 1) Ask yourself if is it a photo-shot or a trick by a CG artist; 2) Try to convince yourself that technology can do that; 3) Come back to the idea that it must be a photo-shot, because computer is not that clever to restore the reality in digital; 4) You give up.

So, half a year has passed by and we have a second part of The Most Photorealistic 3D Renderings. Do not torture yourself thinking. I tell you, all of them are purely fake. There is no a single photograph or a photographical background at least. Every single detail in these renderings is generated by madly talented 3D artists. Enjoy and let the flow of inspiration grab you.
