3d Art Direct interviews veteran sci-fi 3d creator Artur Rosa, of Portugal, Europe.


“When I’m making an image, I always have three priorities: first comes beauty, then innovation and in third place comes realism. If I have to sacrifice realism for the sake of the first two, I will and frequently do. But generally I try to obtain some kind of balance.”


3d Art Direct talks with Bjorn Malmberg and Ryan Malone about their continuing Extra Solar sci-fi project.
