Meta – the girl in the silver suit

Meta – the girl in the silver suit

Our first free mini mag was published yesterday and the front cover features the gorgeous “Meta”, a fictional character belonging to a futuristic organisation called PLANSURV. The mini mag features some 3D digital artworks illustrating her story. The premium issue will include additonal art of her adventures.

Her task is to rediscover habitable planets that have been severed from contact due to a series of internal bickerings and wars amongst humanity. The remanents of any societies left on these planets are sure to be difficult to deal with and it’s her job to reconnect these societies back into the League of Planets.

The Meta model is using Poser (Smith-Micro) version 7, featuring Victoria 4 with Ynes (3rd degree) that makes the Victoria model even more curvy. Our premium issue (to be published soon) will feature a complete list of all the models and software used in our digital art with hotlinks to get these and download them for yourselves.

Free 3D Digital Art Mini Magazine

With an ailing BBC Micro B computer and a short textbook on 3D geometry, I created a crude wire mesh landscape—my first 3D digital world slowly rendered into being in 1986.

Despite the graphical simplicity, the notion of creating any landscape from scratch, albeit empty of any detail, was greatly appealing.  Perhaps it was all those wire frame flight simulators written for the 8 bit processors of the day that inspired me. Or was it the 1983 release of the landmark Atari “Star Wars” 3D vector graphics game that first sparked my imagination? “How did they do that?” I asked. “Could I fit one in my bedroom?” I also asked. Luckily the game was ported to the 8 bit computer world soon after it’s release.

Nowadays 3D graphics pervade our media. The hardware and software  to create realistic looking 3D artwork  has come within the reach  of many more of us.  Bryce , using fractal geometry, appeared in 1994 for the Apple Mac and was a quantum leap forward for digital artists.  It was an impressive tool for creating realistic landscapes with the kernel created by Ken Musgrave (who later created Mojoworld).

Our free mini magazine  is designed to inspire and stimulate with the world of 3D digital art.… Read the rest
