Some clinicians believe that having nightmares is a sort of therapy, a way to deal with traumatic events and stress. But if you were blessed with a reasonably sweet night's sleep, we suggest you don't scroll down, because these out-of-hell creatures and too vivid nightmare scenes will rob you of hours and hours of pleasant Zzz's. With Halloween fast approaching, we decided to descend into the deepest and darkest fantasies of 20+ digital artists from around the globe, gathering a collection of scariest beasts we never want to meet in our nightmares however therapeutic that might be...

Some people like to highlight that all the glorious art has already been created. Those who say so perhaps forget to count in the endless possibilities of 3D design. Today movies can be filmed in a quarry of stone and 3D designers will add the turquoise sea, verdant pinewood and a surreal house on the shore.
The audience could suspect a house being improved using 3D design technique. But it is much easier to bribe with a landscape selling a matte-painting as the real one. Moreover, 3D designers are passionate to confuse questioning: What do you think: is this a photograph or the art of 3D?
This phenomenon is called photorealism. It is like a magic wand that brings a fantasy into the life while is used by a skilled artist. Obtaining render which is indistinguishable from a photograph became the Holy Grail of 3D design since 1960s. The target in this work is to reach perfection. In this particular case it means to imitate the reality to the smallest dots. It requires high level of attention even to the rarest details.
So we want to share our thorough list of the highly professional 3D artwork of photorealism. Hopefully, it will give you new ideas and inspire for the masterpieces.

It is the second floor of a building in the industrial part of Vilnius in Lithuania. There is a bunch of people staring at the computers all day long. In the conference room a dozen of 3D glasses lays on a table. This huge office is the home for a Lithuanian design studio OKTA which was responsible for the special effects of commended Lithuanian movie Vanishing Waves. Its leader Vitalijus Zukas reveals their everyday cares and a life in between 2D and 3D worlds.

- If you look at the 3D model of New York City shared by NONECG, don't believe your eyes. I'm just back from NYC and can point 5 things that are missing:
- yellow cabs
- hod dog vendors
This is why we love CG: it allows us to build our own exclusive world and show it to others!
If we miss something in NY, we just add it, right? For us, 3D artists, it is not necessary even to climb to the Empire State Building to do that.
But I climbed :)
