Best of 3D Graphics from Rockport Publishing
Artwork by Ralph Manis featured in Femme Digitale
I am very happy to announce that Best of 3D Graphics from Rockport Publishing is available to the public. Many of Ralph’s latest 3D artwork and the very popular “Angie 3D Portrait Tutorial” are just some of many to be featured in this top notch publication.
“Advanced, affordable technology has brought 3D graphics to the masses. Eye-popping images jump at us from movie screens and video games, print ads, and books. These images spur innovative graphic designers to create ever bolder and more spectacular images.
While most books on 3D graphics function as uninspired how-to manuals, this full-color portfolio allows the art to speak for itself. The Best of 3D Graphics presents more than 250 cutting-edge images designed by masters of the craft from around the world. Full- page images help artists zero in and study the winning 3D techniques that grab audiences. Informational text reveals the artist and software program involved in each creation. At the back of the book, images are deconstructed to show how they were created.
Whether showcasing a cartoon character in a children’s movie or a landscape in a book, a “virtual person” in a multimedia presentation or a Hollywood special effect, this in-your-face sourcebook will inspire novice and seasoned 3D artists alike.”
There is good news for the artists who submitted samples for review. The entries were excellent, and whether we selected your work for the printed book or not, we decided to include ALL entries on the CD that ships with the book. The CD is also very special. The entries are divided into categories, and a menu allows you to browse each work and enlarge the image full screen. We also developed an automated slide show mode and included a number of musical selections to accompany the art. So even if your work did not make it to the printed page, it is on the CD. And the CD is on the inside front cover of the book. As much as I like the way the book turned out, I feel the CD offers even more. Hundreds of incredible 3D graphics from artists around the world will both inspire and delight you.
