So many of the great 3D artists we speak to tell us how important history and traditional art is to them when it comes to references and inspiration, but in this issue of 3dcreative, we will be looking at what 3D skills can bring to the world of art history!

Carlos Bayod Lucini explains how he and artist Manuel Franquelo have developed the Lucida scanner which, with the help of a few 3D artists, perfectly recreates historic monuments, preserving the original for generations to come.

We also speak to Rockstar North’s Wayne Robson about his diverse career in 3D, MPC’s Federico Scarbini about his impressive sculpting skills, and last but not least, provide another tutorial-packed issue featuring both photoreal and imaginative modeling.
