3dtotal’s free magazine was a hit at last year’s SIGGRAPH – thank you to everyone who picked up a copy or downloaded the digital version! Unfortunately we can’t be at SIGGRAPH this year, but to keep up the sharing spirit, we’re releasing this free edition of 3dcreative instead. This issue contains all the usual features and inspirational artwork, at no cost!

We’ve got fantastic interviews with Gurmukh Bhasin, bringing us the latest Star Citizen news, and also sci-fi concept pro Ben Erdt. We go behind the scenes of some brilliant images by portraiture genius Ian Spriggs and prize-winning Gnomon student Yingbiao Han. Our tutorials and guides cover human anatomy, freelancing advice, real-time rendering, and finishing a 3D-printed resin model. We hope you enjoy this issue and join us next month for more great 3D art!
