Creating 3D images...

Little clarification, I speak of 3D image like animation ("Toy Story", "Shrek ",...) and not images "in relief" as the recent movie "Avatar", to name only him!

I realize my 3D images on a PC powerful enough that I made myself, fast dual-core processor, powerful graphics card, lot of memory and hard disks, because this activity is very intensive computing power, in fact to be honest, it has unfortunately never enough...

Lightwave 3D packaging

As for software, I use Lightwave 3D society Newtek, not so known in France, it's much more in United States and Japan. It existe since many years, I find it user friendly and it's my preference because I've tried other softwares like 3D Studio Max and Maya 3D from Autodesk, but not only have I failed to get used to their interface, and furthermore, not all the same price range! They are three to four times more than Lightwave 3D, This represents a big invest for an individual guy...

That said, the latest version disappointed me a little bit in terms of novelty, but also towards all that's animation and particle physics engine management (which allows management of collisions objects between them, among other things ...). So, I'm now very close to a free 3D software, but very powerful, I appointed Blender, currently in version 2.77
You will find all the info, galleries, examples, and of course the download link here: www.blender.org and with little searchs, you can find many websites with tutorials and also some books.

I spoke earlier films like "Shrek", but I'm not there yet ... I model mostly common objects (car wheels, gears, various bottles,...) that I stage rather like "marketing" style that's to say without decoration on white background. But a few subjects "abstract" like hearts, pseudo-financial graphs, vehicles covered with grass or other monetary symbols ... And finally, a little science fiction with spaceships have a fairly streamlined and organic design.
