My Free 3D Models for download
Welcome to Page 3
of my 3D Artwork gallery.
The following images are all made using various 3D digital art programs. Whenever possible I will attempt to post short comments with the images on their creation.
Feel free to right click and download any of these images that you might like as use for a desktop wallpaper. They are all in JPG format though, so you will need to convert them to BMP format in order to use them as wallpaper in Windows.
Bruce / Aug 2010
|A tragic story goes with many of
the following images. Several of them were created just when I was
starting to create 3D computer Artwork. You may notice that some of the
quality is lacking in these images with regards to size and resolution.
When I first started doing computer artwork, my system memory was a bit
on the low side and I was using an older computer. So in those days I
really limited the size of my creations. One day, this
computer crashed and I lost a number of files including many of my
original artworks. The reason I have copies to post here is that prior
to the crash I had posted many of them onto Artzone where I
member. But the files had been reduced prior to posting due to gallery
requirements. But, I was lucky in the fact these files still exist at
my Artzone gallery so I have been able to download them to post here.
One of the newer images that I created not involved in the computer crash of a few years back was the facility. This was my vision of what a Secret
Government Research Facility out in the middle of nowhere might look like. This scene created and rendered in Bryce. The majority of this scene
consists of buildings and props models that I built myself. Only the vehicles, people and helicopter in the background are commercial models.
This was another major undertaking due to all the details I had to create for this scene such as the interior of the guard shack, TV cameras,
and quite a few other set pieces including the chain link fence. The sign on the fence although only partially visible is based on actual
Govt. facility signs.
Area 51 is one of my older images that was lost due to my computer crash. It was my fanciful idea of what this mysterious place could look like
up close. Other than the Hummer and occupants, all of the buildings, set pieces and props were created from primitives in Bryce and the
textures created with Paint Shop Pro. The fence line is based somewhat upon a real fence I came across in my military days. The signs
are also quite accurate especially the Warning Restricted Area sign which is very similar to signs outside of some facilities. Since
rumors abound over Area 51 and its connections to UFOs and Aliens, I decided to add a UFO in the background for a little fun.
"SUNDAY IN THE CITY"
Sunday In The City was my vision of a future world where flying cars are a reality. Unfortunatly this is one of the images lost in my old computer crash so this copy
doesn't do justice to some of the added details and resolution of the original artwork. This image was created in Bryce 6 and was made up of all primitives with
the exception of the people which were commercial models from DAZ3D. The majority of textures were created with PSP although a few times I used Bryce
textures. This image was close to a month in the making and I had lots of memory crashes along the way, so I finally had to create the scene as a couple of
layers and assembled them in PSP. One thing I have to note is that all of the names shown in this image mean something to me. I used the names of
many family members in many of the structures, etc. shown here. Included was my wifes name, kids and grandkids wherever I could include them.
"LETS DO LUNCH"
Another image that did not survive the computer crash. I had taken the background photo out at one of the local parks and it just seemed to
fit with adding this DAZ3D dinosaur model. Although looking back at this now, I feel I could have done a better job with the background as
it just feels too composited like an old style rear projection scene in a movie.
This scene created and rendered with DAZ Studio.
"TEMPLE OF THE KINGS"
The TEMPLE OF THE KINGS I created using VistaPro which is a terrain program. To create the structure of the temple itself, I just made up
various shapes with my PSP program in various shades of black & white. This was then imported into VP where the program read these as
elevations. The reason for the copyright shown here is that I entered this image into a contest of VistaPro artwork. VP is made and sold by
MonkeyByte.com and I came in 3rd with this image. So the company and I hold joint copyright to this image which is now available as
a product such as mouse pads at their website. I use one of these mousepads myself with this image and it is quite nice mounted in
a metal frame and the pad itself is reversible depending on your tastes for your pad surface texture. If I were to have any issue
with the VP program it is the fact they haven't done any updates for awhile. But it is still a great program for the price.
