This priest surely committed to his celibate there...
Cheap art will be just that. The true value lies in commitment and hard work. This is just a tool and without a creative mind operating it the results will hold no magic. Did photography kill painting? I think both are doing and developing rather well.
Take a look at the future with the best submissions of CGTrader Awards’ Sci-fi category.
Online marketplace CGTrader is running the CGTrader Awards: a worldwide art contest with prizes of over $50,000 in value. Since the CGTrader Awards: Best 3D art around the web is coming to an end, after having received about 2500 submissions in total, CGTrader chose the best artworks – the total leaders for each category. Sci – fi in its definition is the genre of speculating about the possible future and the outcomes of the scientific and technological evolution. And what better way to visualize the future than by seeing it through the eyes of the artists? Take a look at what future will be like according to the artists behind the best submissions of CGTrader Awards’ Sci-fi category.
