BALLISTIC PUBLISHING ANNOUNCES – ELEMENTAL 3 – The World’s Best Autodesk Art

 

Adelaide, South Australia – 17th JULY 2008 

 

The ELEMENTAL series showcases the world’s best digital artwork created with

Autodesk software. ELEMENTAL 3 is packed with exciting imagery from Autodesk

customers with a strong emphasis on architectural and design visualization.

For the first time in an ELEMENTAL title – Autodesk Maya and Autodesk Mudbox

artwork are also included.

 

The ELEMENTAL series, created in partnership with Autodesk Inc, showcases

the world’s best art created with Autodesk 3D visualization and animation

software. ELEMENTAL 3 continues this partnership and expands the breadth of

the series across more genres and with greater focus on architectural

visualization and design (product and automotive).

 

“This book is a celebration of digital art. It’s the magic that happens when

great imaginations are paired with great technology. Like its predecessor,

ELEMENTAL 3 features the best-of-the-best Autodesk 3ds Max art. We’re

excited that Autodesk Maya and Autodesk Mudbox artwork is included for the

first time. Congratulations to everyone whose work is featured in ELEMENTAL

3. Prepare to be amazed!”  

Marc Petit, Senior Vice President, Autodesk Media & Entertainment 

 

For the third edition of ELEMENTAL, Ballistic Publishing appointed an

advisory board to assist in nominating and judging images for the ELEMENTAL

3 awards. All of these people are either leading artists in their own right

or are experienced and respected members of the Autodesk product team.

ELEMENTAL 3 features 246 examples of the world’s best digital art created

with Autodesk software from 170 artists in 43 countries.

 

Award categories included: Architecture Exterior (Public/Residential);

Architecture Interior (Public/Residential); Architecture/Reconstruction;

Characters; Creatures; Robotic/Cyborg; Product Design; Still Life;

Transport; Abstract; and Environment. A wide range of styles and subject

matter are showcased in ELEMENTAL 3 with an emphasis on architectural

visualization. Several notable architectural firms are represented with

visualizations spanning interior/exterior public spaces, commercial

buildings, and interior/exterior residential spaces.

 

ELEMENTAL 3 is the only art book showcasing the work of CG artists in

architectural visualization, and is the first Ballistic title to dedicate

half of its pages to architectural subjects. Printed to the highest

standards, the book features individually color-corrected pieces of original

art with a richness and depth not found in other art books.
