Gaining Perspective: A Showcase of 3D Digital Renders

February 6th, 2012

With the design communities ever pressing pursuit of inspiration and the growing popularity of three dimensional digital renderings, we thought this was the perfect opportunity for these two paths to cross for Noupe’s readers. So we went out across the internet in search of some truly inspired pieces of art that have crossed into the third dimension to showcase for you here. Rendered to perfection by some wonderful digital artists.

So take a look below at the 3D digital renders we have collected for you, and see some breathtaking results. The rich fullness the artists manage to capture that allows the pieces to rise off from their virtual canvases leaving that flat feeling behind, and often feeling like a photograph.

    Wonderful collection
    Subsurfacing sushi, so realistic even down to the cuts on the chopping board.

    Very nice collection of 3d renders. I always found the concept so interesting – something that requires such a high degree of creativity and artistic integrity. They’re not much different than a 2d digital piece, yet they often get more merit than web design for being artistic as a lot of people deny web design as an ‘art’. Ah well, what can I say! I love seeing the two integrated together!

    What a really great selection of 3d renders, some of the work showcased here is absolutely phenomenal, i really like “so commander what is your plan” although this is a less striking piece of work, i definitely feel that the message in which the piece of work portrays is tension and planning, either they are heading into a war or a big event is approaching them, and i really feel this piece definitely showcases this.

    Cool stuff. I always wanted to learn how to do 3D rendered digital art. Does anyone know some good place to learn?
