I would like to proudly announce that the March 2010 issue of 3D World magazine will feature free sIBL sets from my HDRSource HDR and sIBL libraries. These sets are free for commercial use to people who purchase this issue. Along with my sets, several other sIBL library photographers and developers will also be releasing some of their work as well. It’s quite literally hundreds of dollars worth of free work packed into a supplemental DVD.* The US release of this issue will follow a month later in April.
Judging by the cover posted above, the issue itself looks fantastic and I can’t wait until I’m able to get my hands on it. It contains articles on modeling techniques, color theory, linear workflow, free models, a 3D article regarding the iPhone, and much much more. I find all of those topics to be very interesting – in particular color theory, their take on LWF, and creating 3D for the iPhone.
The authors of these sIBL libraries and sets include:
- Christian Bloch of the HDR Handbook – www.hdrlabs.com
- Charles Leo of LunarStudio – www.lunarstudio.com | www.hdrsource.com/
- Bob Groothuis of Dutch Skies – Bob Groothuis.
I would like to add that these fellow artists and authors have been wonderful to work with. I have had the wonderful opportunity to speak with several of them over the last few months. They have been very kind and very helpful and are truly an inspiration. If you have a moment, please feel free to visit their websites and check out their amazing work.
*Please note that not all of the 3D World March issues will contain this DVD.
