Amazing Science Fiction and Fantasy 3D Characters!


This blog post is a collection of creative works incorporating imaginative elements not found in contemporary reality. Here you will see settings in the future, in alternative time lines, on other worlds. You’ll meet horrifying aliens, extraordinary robots, monsters, goblins and other imaginary animals and creatures.

 

It’s difficult to explain what science fiction is, so I started searching and found out that there is no full satisfactory definition. As Lester Del Rey wrote, there are no easily delineated limits to science fiction. The author Mark C. Glassy said once: “You don’t know what it is, but you know it when you see it.” But I like Rod Serling’s definition best: “Fantasy is the impossible made probable. Science Fiction is the improbable made possible.” As you see, everyone defines these notions in his own way. So, don’t judge the author of this article strictly, if some of the images seem inappropriate to you.

    It’s interesting really, i never knew there were so many ways to define science fiction.

    The images are amazing and I wish I knew where one would start trying to create something like that.

    Some of the images remind me of the film Never Ending Story

    Those designs are amazing. I espescially like the one of slimer.

    Good job. Interesting information about studios and softs! Adobe isn’t very popular ))

    The slimer picture I liked. It was so finely detailed that I can see some of the finer wrinkles and indentations in the picture.
