Advances in virtual reality consumer hardware and software are making 3D design and artistry much more obtainable skills. Being able to move the creation of three dimensional content off of the two dimensional computer screen and into a virtual environment is changing everything about how this art is created. I believe this is a fundamental shift in how 3D content will be created in the future and we’re seeing the birth of that new generation of artists today.
VRtual Artist is my attempt to document the progression of this movement through software and hardware reviews, artist showcases, VR industry news, and opinions on the state of VR art creation. Ultimately, I’d like to see this become a rallying point where artists can gain knowledge and break down the barriers to creating amazing 3D artwork.
