Choosing your first 3D modeling software in 2023: An overview of Blender, 3ds Max and Maya
3D modeling has become a creative and exciting way of bringing your ideas to life. No matter if you are a designer, an engineer, an artist or simply a hobbyist, it allows you to create accurate and detailed digital models of objects, characters, environments, etc. 3D modeling though comes in many flavors when it’s time to choose the right 3D software in which you will embark your journey as a newcomer 3D designer. With the right software, you can create anything you can imagine, from simple shapes, to complex 3D scenes, animations and even be able to create your own movie or video game. But with so many options to choose from, the first step can feel overwhelming rather than exciting and full of adventures, especially if you are a beginner.

But there are ways to make their life easier - and no, it's not "lowering standards." To the great joy of creatives everywhere, plug-ins, which are like software's beneficent symbionts, exist! They latch onto specific programs - Vray, for example - to bring functionality that was not provided by the developer. So now you can reap the benefits of faster workflow and lesser headaches!

Pinch Yourself: 20 Pictures You Will Not Believe Are Not Photos
There are a lot of things in the world that are hard to believe. Face the truth eyes lie to us. Or, more specifically, our mind does not let us understand simple visual information which is used in optical illusion tricks.
Optical illusion is visually perceived images that differ from objective reality. I bet, you remember all those visual puzzles of a rabbit and a duck as the same object and so on. Well, that is just a simple example of the capability of visual artists who play with our vision and our mind. Furthermore, there are artists who specialize in the art form of illusion. Magicians produce something from nothing, literary. Probably, the first magicians were witches, who created all that hocus pocus stuff, which led them to be burnt on the fire.
