Great examples of humorous 3D CGI creature art
« on: April 12, 2010, 11:54:05 AM »
I don't know how many of you are fans of CGI, but there's a excellent collection of 3D creature art recently posted over on the Noupe website. CGI has lost some of its luster for many of us over the years. After all, how many space-scapes, robot warriors, and interplanetary battle scenes can you look at before they all start to look just a little bit alike?

But then along come some truly twisted individuals who add a splash of whimsy and humor to the technical mix to come up with something like these images to remind us thatCGI art still has legs under it:

Beam me up Scotty

or this:

Don't feed the plant!

It's just such a waste they don't release a big enough picture so that it can be cropped for use as a background. Beautiful as most of those images are I'll have forgotten them all by tomorrow whereas I remember dozens of other artists names and regularly checkout their galleries because having some of their work as wallpaper.

You simply cannot appreciate an image properly unless you leave it somewhere you can actually see it :(

If you click on the illustrations many link to the artist's web pages where larger image files can often be found. Many are suitably sized for use as as desktop wallpaper.

Actually I checked most of them but no joy.

On related note- of course it's the artists own prerogative to offer a wallpaper sized image, I'm not questioning that. But I honestly think it would be in their best interests to so.

Agree..

There's no money in wallpaper images. Too easy to copy and share. So why not give it away as an advert?

It's when you get popular enough that people want to buy hardcopy (prints, t-shirts, etc.) - or big media companies want to license you work (or hire your talents) that the big $$$ start rolling in.

The best way to do that  is to become a recognized artist. Wallpaper is a terrific no-cost way to get your work out there where it can be seen and talked about.

Maybe it might be an idea to post a suggestion either directly to the artist(s) you're interested in or add a comment to that effect on Smashing?

Hmm...

I checked a few and found some pretty large images, but I'll admit I didn't check all of them. For example, like Gwen7, I also liked Hunter Hunted and found it (at 1024 X 768) in the artist's gallery on Deviant.com.

I think it would make a great, albeit creepy desktop image for a honeypot or a firewall/security server!

(I really like it when the desktop gives a clue as to what you've just logged in on. ;D )

This is the only one that made me laugh, so it must be my favorite:

Funnycreature 29 in 45 Humorous Examples of 3D CG Creatures Artworks.jpgGreat examples of humorous 3D CGI creature art


Description: "Every year, a young member of the Fuz'hy Lindt Tribe who has come of age must prove his worth by donning the blessed regalia of the sacred carrot and leading the Tribe on the Great Hunt. Only the fastest and bravest of warriors will ensure a successful Carrot Run, providing food for the Tribe through the winter."

Notice that the little furry creatures names sound like "Fuzzy Lint"  :)

So I just looked at an animated GIF of the Carrot Run while it was a work in progress. Erm.. It's not a 3D CGI. It's a digital painting. In fact, it may be that all of the Imaginism images are digital painting rather than 3D rendered CGI.
