The 3dcreative team is hugely excited to reach issue 100 this month – that's over 8 years of incredible creatures, vehicles, mechs and more, all in amazing 3D!
Inside issue 100, you will find every single 3dcreative magazine cover since September 2005. Looking over the last 8 years, it's exciting to see how much 3D art has advanced, but it is also clear that what hasn't changed is the talent and passion of the artists we work with.
After so many years of support, we'd like to thank all of you: from the 3dcreative veterans who've been reading for 8 years, to all the new students just joining us - not to mention the hundreds of fantastic artists who've made each issue an extravaganza of CG deliciousness. We admire you all!
Now, before we get a bit emotional, we should let you know how we are celebrating this mighty achievement...
As a thanks for being such a loyal follower, we have loads of freebies and offers for you to check out, including a free full-version of iClone4 PRO, free 3D models and assets, plus lots of awesome discounts for you to take advantage of.
Inside issue 100, we chat to 3D printing pioneer Joshua Harker, and character sculpting master, Rafael Grassetti, about the exciting future of 3D art and careers.
