Humankind has looked to nature in search of inspiration and solutions since the dawn of time. In architecture and design, biomimicry is particularly prevalent, which is why environments are an integral part of archviz work. Italian 3D artist Andrea Sguanci keeps exploring the everlasting mutual influence between nature and architecture through his personal work, honing his skills in the process.
Join us, as we take a look beneath the undergrowth and explore the age-old fascination for natural environments through an archviz lense.

As you already know, we have been running our own and very successful 3D Artist of the Month contest, where we receive great projects from many artists and customers, for more than 6 years now. We really appreciate all the input and enthusiasm from you and want to thank you for this! It is always a pleasure to do the interviews with you and to show these great works to our community.
This year we have come up with something special and new!

2020 is finally here, and what better way to celebrate the start of a new decade than with a (big) bang!? Opening for our 3D Artist of the Month campaign in January is Yuriy Dulich, a Ukrainian astrophysicist turned stellar groomer and character artist. Having recently received an Animago award for his ‘Subarctic Great Horned Owl’, his expert avian craftsmanship is on display again: Yuriy’s ‘Somali Ostrich’, the result of a strategic market analysis and a self-imposed challenge, is just out of this world!
Check out our in-depth interview to find out more about Yuriy’s fascinating journey, the relation between CGI and astrophysics, and why petting animals is beneficial to his work.

Like the past years, we will not forget about the people who are in need and struggling for their lives every day. People, young and old, who have to flee from natural disasters and violence. This is why this year we are supporting the organization DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS with a donation.
This organization provides food and medical aid in places where it is urgently needed.
Maybe you would like to donate something to an organization of your choice too?

What better way to close out this year’s 3D Artist of the Month campaign than with an archviz holiday in the Mediterranean! For Pablo Tabarez, however, producing the cool and luxurious residence that earned him a well-deserved win in December 2019, was anything but a leisure activity. Blurring the lines between the digital and physical world, the project holds a special place in Pablo’s heart – and makes for an impressive display of expert CG craft.
Take a break and join us on a daydream to Ibiza, where we discuss the importance of emotion in architecture, working with local suppliers in 3D and more.

RebusFarm has been using 100% CO2 and nuclear waste free energy for years. Running on green energy combined with a cooling system without air-conditioning and an intelligent software management system is RebusFarm's contribution to an environmentally friendly business.
Today we are very excited to introduce to you Gyöngyi and Ond Pilisi, two dedicated 3D artists who use their skills to make a difference in this world. Together they founded the 'Hello Earth Program' and approached us to take a step forward with them to make the world a little greener in the future.
Using cute animations, they create short videos aimed at schoolchildren to learn about the perception of their environment and its effects early on and in a playful way.
We give the floor to Gyöngyi to present their great program.
