Interview with Pierre Chartier – From Photography to Digital Landscapes

Pierre Chartier is a relative newcomer to 3D digital art. Well known and respected in Canada for his work as Director of Photography in the television and entertainment industry, and an award winning director, he moved into the music arena to nurture talent using exotic wind instruments. In 2008, he because familiar with ArtMatic Voyager, and then moved on to Terragen 2.

Pierre brought his photographic and directorial eye into the virtual arena, and not long after starting out, he won a third place finish in the NWDA Roadside contest several years ago. His experience in looking through a lens, and his exposure to the majestic landscapes of Canada and Quebec allow him to create photorealistic landscapes that can easily fool the eye!

Display your 3D digital art or animations just like a Star Wars hologram

star-wars-hologram

Moving holographic displays like those featured in Star Wars could soon be available to watch on a PC or laptop.

Scientists have overcome a large technological hurdle to produce low-cost but high quality holographic videos a reality.

Until now, the video hologram has largely been confined to the realm of science fiction, the most famous example being the pleading image of Princess Leia “Help me Obi-Wan…” in the first Star Wars film.

Current technologies that project moving holographic images are expensive and do suffer limitations.

The main problem is with components named spatial light modulators, which work on directing light to form points in three dimensional space.

The current technology has restrictions with the display size, viewing angle, frame rate and the depth of image.

But engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a new sort of spatial light modulator that now gets rid of most of these problems.

There are estimates that a holographic monitor using the new discoveries could be created for less than $500 (but this excludes the light sources).

The new technology allows a display to go up to half a metre in width and to have a refresh rate at 30Hz.

So can you imagine creating your 3D digital artwork and posting it on a forum to be admired from all angles by your contemporaries?  … Read the rest

3DAD 004 : Creating steampunk art with Poser Pro 2012 – Interview with digital artist Suzi Amberson

Suzi Amberson is from sunny Phoenix, Arizona. She worked in the Insurance industry for 24 years before discovering a passion for digital art. Once Suzi realized she was not following her intended path she took a huge leap of faith and left the Insurance business to pursue her enthusiasm for creating 3D art.

Suzi is a self-taught artist. She started out with Poser 6 in 2007. Her CG toolbox has expanded over the past few years and now includes Poser Pro 2012, Photoshop CS5 Extended, a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet, Marvelous Designer 2, Hexagon and Bryce as her tools of choice.

She entered her first official art contest in 2009 over on the Daz3D website. The challenge was to create an image in the spirit of the infamous fantasy artist, Frank Frazetta. The final judging was conducted by Frank Frazetta Jr. One of her entries took third place and fuelled her desire to pursue 3D art as she sought to add interest and depth to her spectacular body of work.

We interview her for Session 4 of the podcast which you can
