Creating in 3D

This summer I took my grandson to see The Avengers in 3D. It was my first time for the  multi-dimensional cinematic experience. While I admit to some early misgivings; stories of nausea and vertigo from those who have gone before me into this brave new world; my trepidation was soon cast aside by the thrill of feeling part of the action.

The technique is no less entertaining when used in the field of graphics.  3D illustrations are, as described on iCLIPART.com's Pinterest page, when still life pops out to say hello.  Visual appeal is created when characters and objects jump off the page or add movement and interest to a web design.
