3D is as much fun as it looks. It really is.
I've used 3D extensively for product visualization, character design and creation, architectural visualization - I once made an entire line catalog without taking a single actual photo of a physical product! I've also worked 3D into logo, ad, and poster design for various products - if you've looked through any of the other images on the site, you've already seen a lot of my 3D work.
I'm still going through old archives and culling more images for this section, so check back soon and often!
