The Best of 3D Graphics
“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.
