Welcome to the November issue of 3dcreative!

This month, the 3dcreative habitat is a hub of biodiversity populated by frogs, lizard monsters, goblins, mermaids and even a few humans. Character designers will be in their element, as we have plenty of advice to help you develop your own concepts - be they photoreal, cartoon or completely imaginary!

Despite all of this awesome content, nothing will cheer up Henning Sanden’s Moody Conrad who grimaces from this month’s cover! We love him though, and hope you enjoy Henning’s project overview on page 102

We also talk about work and life with CG couple TYanim, creators of cute characters and animations, as well as master of complex scenes, Andrew Averkin. Happy modeling!

Here at 3DTotal, we’re looking forward to seeing your creations in the gallery soon!
