GraphixRob Studios October/November News

~FujiFilm Graphic Systems, USA Inc.

Frank S. at FujiFilm Graphic Arts Products department came through with the Graphixrob lenticular print poster. The Crash Landing image was used to create a fantastic 3D poster. The poster will be distributed to the entire sales team and used to promote the unique printing technology. The picture (below) does not do the gorgeous 24" poster justice.
The poster did not photograph very well for obvious reasons.

~Computer Graphics World magazine
I was contacted by the Renderosity.com contest moderator soon after posting the Halloween contest entry to inform me that:

"A small, hand-full of Halloween Contest entries have been selected for possible consideration in a special feature story in Computer Graphics World Magazine. And your image was one of them!"
Keep your fingers crossed for the inclusion of the image titled: "Appetite for Ghastly Delights".
