We recently asked our subscribers which model resources they use to help construct a sci-fi or fantasy art scene. We queried what sites they tended to use in general, but also some of the lesser known resources that don’t get the limelight thay they deserve.
If you have a resource you’d like to share – particularly that includes models that can be used in a sci-fi or fantasy digital art scene, then reply to this post and we’ll publish a fuller index for everyone to benefit from.
