INTRODUCTION TO SCI-FI & FANTASY ART
Have you ever wanted to create your own sci-fi and fantasy art pictures? It's not that hard using a computer and software. There are two popular ways to do this. One, you could digitally paint pictures using a graphics program such as Adobe Photoshop, Corel Painter or Autodesk Sketchbook and ideally a graphics tablet, or alternatively you can use digital 3d space models and import them into a suitable 3d rendering program, then arrange your models to compose the scene and render the final composition.
The first option requires tremendous artisitic skill to produce very high quality imagery. The second option allows those of us who don't have the same level of skill, but have a good imagination and an eye for composition and detail to produce pictures of similar quality.
You can certainly take inspiration from the former elite group of artists by looking at how they compose their pictures and the elements that they use to incorporate into them. Spacehips, robots, hi-tec vehicles and armoury can all be created in a 3d model, sometimes to a much more realistic degree. But realism isn't always the top priority. In the world of sci-fi and fantasy, your imagination can take concepts as far from reality as you want them to be.
CHOOSE YOUR OWN STYLE
Personally, I like to create pictures that are futuristic, but not beyond the realms of reality. I like to make them appear as if they are hand painted and not too realistic, as if they were almost a photograph. There are many 3d modellers who can achieve this and I admire them. But I like to produce artwork that is a little bit less clinical in detail. Creating your own sci-fi and fantasy artwork using our 3D space models and the rendering software Bryce will allow you to do the same.
So if the idea appeals to you, then please join us and feel free to follow along with our tutorials and learn to create your own amazing artwork. If you're a complete beginner then I recommend you start with the beginner tutorial and then, when you have learnt some of the basic steps, move on to more advanced projects.
