So who are the best ones? We have the winners of CGTrader Awards 2017

“It’s great to know that no matter how complicated and tedious 3D production process might be, the artists still manage to see beyond the technical limitations and use powerful software as freely as a simple canvas, creating meaningful and strikingly beautiful work,” says Kirill Tokarev, one of the judges of CGTrader Awards and editor-in-chief at 80.lv. And we cannot agree more with Kiril. The artwork submitted for CGTrader Awards in just a bit more than two months is exceptional: the quality is impressive, detail and realism achieved are mind-blowing, and engagement from global artist community is something we could not have imagined to have in the very first year of these awards.

CG Fantasy Character Inspiration For All The Modeling Paladins And Elves Out There!

CG Fantasy Character Inspiration For All The Modeling Paladins And Elves Out There!

There's more to fantasy than Tolkien, you know! Of course, people will disagree, and that's why dwarfs will always be racist against elves (and vice versa). However, we can always try and push the envelope! Warhammer Fantasy Battles had a good idea with their fantasy Holy Roman Empire equivalent, Empire. You know what's better than knights in shining armor? Knights in shining armor backed by arquebusiers and steam tanks. Now that's some serious business! And we have collected this sampling of great fantasy stuff to get you inspired! And when you're done with that, you can check out our previous post about 13 fantasy characters we want to appear in movies. Don't forget to take a look at the 3D galleries available at FormFonts when you have the free time.
