3D Artist issue 16 – out now! Visit www.3dartistonline.com

Go behind the scenes to learn how Carlos Ortega made this issue’s stunning cover girl (well… centaur) in a step-by-step tutorial. Accompanying the tutorial on the cover disc is the bow model as seen on the cover, supplied in OBJ format with UVs – follow Carlos’s advice to create your own beautiful archer, or try the bow out with your own characters to create some dynamic poses. The choice is yours!

Viktor Fretyan teaches us his material and lighting techniques, using his latest masterpiece of the KUMU art museum as a guide. Viktor is a master when it comes to architectural illustrations, so learn from the best in another great step-by-step tutorial! And as if those aren’t enough, we welcome Satoshi Ueda, author of the stunning Girl in Church image, which has wowed the 3D community with its breathtaking realism, to talk us through how they textured and lit the character, and Greger Pihl shows us how he modelled his 3D interpretation of the fantastic concept by Paul Bonner, Wagon Cadwallan.

Packed with inspiration, tips, industry insights and technical tutorials, we have something for everyone, from beginners and beyond. Every issue features a Back to basics class, as well as the much-loved Masterclass article and our regular Q&A session. Add that to a line up of interviews with the best in CG, software and training reviews, and behind the scenes stories on the hottest visual effects, and you’ve got yourself another jam-packed issue of 3D Artist.
