AlfaSeed : Are Games the Ultimate Creative Output for 3D Digital Art?

Alfa SeeD are two popular digital artists providing exceptional Poser content, who are also aiming their creations towards the game market. They provide a mix of quality science fiction and fantasy content and are one of the most popular vendors on Runtime DNA and describe themselves as “Electronic Performers”. In this interview, republished from Issue 23 of 3D Art Direct, we discover their passion for game artwork and how they’ve continued to evolve as artists despite their many challenges.
