Thanks for opening issue #117 of 3dcreative! Concept design, 3D printing, texturing, and fantastic sci-fi art are at the forefront of this month’s issue. We speak to Tor Frick and Justin Goby Fields about their accomplishments, and marvel at Paul Braddock and James W. Cain’s 3D-printed handiwork. Mohammad Attaran also shares an insightful look into the making of our exciting cover image – it’s a tale of hard work and perseverance, which are of course the key to everything!

If you’re in the mood for some sculpting, feast your eyes on Vick Gaza’s excellent ZBrush sketches and Scibor Teleszynski’s traditional clay models. If you want to improve your texturing skills, we’ve covered albedo maps, MARI and BodyPaint 3D. On top of that, we’ve got a gallery of our favorite recent images to inspire you, and plenty more besides. Keep on creating, everybody!
