The Making of a 3D Picture

Ok, lately I have felt that I need to explain about the process of making a 3D picture.…

Typically, 3D art is part of something bigger… the art is made in an animation programme (movie making software). The art you see in my portfolio is like a ‘still’. Not every artist builds their 3D picture with a view to animating, but I thought I would let you know of the software’s capabilities.

Firstly, 3D software is not easy to learn. Its like a big stage on your computer, props, figures, lighting and cameras can be added, just like a movie set. Everything can move around where ever you want it to. The characters can talk if you have the right software. I am not going into the animation side of things, just the still picture.

Many people can contribute to a 3D picture….

Successful Collaborations

There are so many beautiful collaborations on Red Bubble.. there should be more of them.…

Anyway, I thought I would write a bit about how i collaborate with some of the amazing photographers on this site and maybe share a few tips.

I usually import the photo Im working on into one of my 3D programmes so i can match the lighting perfectly. I am not a photoshop expert so this works better for me. Some use photoshop as the base programme and add their own work from there with brilliant results… I just cant do it that way!

So after I have imported the photo I want to work with, I start character development. Sometimes the photo I am using has already inspired a vision in my head, sometimes I just want to work with a brilliant photo so badly I start with nothing in my head at all.
