Science fiction and fantasy are two of the largest genres for not only literary writing, film and TV, but also for computer graphics. One of the jobs of an artist is to illustrate the unknown, demonstrate the impossible, and show the world what could be. Space ships, majestic castles, evil fortresses, gnarled branches, invincible warriors and horrifying monsters are only a few of the potential subjects for a computer graphics artist. Using software such as 3D Studio Max, Vue, Maya, Cinema4D, Photoshop, zBrush, Modo and Fusion, these artists can combine 3d elements with digitally painted elements to create virtual worlds that exist only in our dreams.
