I absolutely love my medium, and I am astounded almost daily by what can be achieved with in 3D apps. but rarely do I find 3D imagery that can have the impact some more traditional mediums can.
I recently came across the work of Vladimir Volegov who quite simply takes my breath away. The rendering of light is absolutely masterful, the mood, almost overpoweringly sentimental. There is a cadence in his capture of gesture that emits a subtle yet ornate sincerity.
If you have a spare half an hour, I highly recommend you browse his wonderful gallery of works. He is quite prolific, and has been generous enough to post his work online for us to see and order prints.
Thank you so much, Mr. Volegov.
