45 Amazing Examples of Code Generated and 3D CG Artworks

Advertisement

The most interesting thing we like about art is that it is independent of any medium; an artist can express himself without any limitations or restrictions by creating a wonderful and creative piece of art. A creative artist can come up with an inspirational and motivational thought and put that in their artwork in such a way that it becomes a masterpiece that dazzles our mind.

In this post we present some amazing examples of Code Generated, Algorithmic Abstract Artworks and CG Artworks. There are some really interesting platforms and libraries; by using them, artists can create unusual artworks. Most popular among these libraries are Flash Scripting, Generator.x1, Processing (Java Based)2, openFrameworks (C Based)3 and for creating CG Art, artists are often using 3D Max, Maya, Zbrush, V Ray, Photoshop etc.

Hopefully, you’ll love them and will find them creative or inspirational. Please explore the further works of the artists linked below and also feel free to suggest other artworks in the comments to this post.

3D Computer Graphic Artworks

In this section, we have collected some truly fantastic CG Artworks (3D Computer Graphics). The most incredible thing about 3D Graphics is that you can recreate any image on your computer that will looks very much like the real thing. Sometimes this 3D rendering becomes so incredible that nobody can hardly tell a difference between the real image and a computed one.

    I must admit that in CG graphic is still recognizable as a artificial image. I don’t knot what is missing, by you can see it on for example “Night Elf” or “Binah” which are very artificial. But “green cargo” “Porsche”, “Young girl” & “Artist” (I don’t know if “Artist” is CG) are very close to reality. “Green cargo” is best in this angle of view.

    Actually…art is NOT independent of any medium. But neither is it bound by traditional media. And you could say the same of computing.

    A more interesting thing about art is why you call it ‘art’ in the first place.

    Cheers.

    You should check out David O’Reilly. Some of his stuff is weird, but the atheistic of his digital art is original and interesting. He’s done work in video by removing keyframes and letting the digital “mess” that results become art. Cool stuff.

    Blimey – some of those skin tones are amazing. One small criticism of metallic objects is that they often look just a little too shiny. This applies to graphics in video games (although they’re often stunning, they just don’t quite look ‘right’.)
