3D art

Dedoimedo also writes awesome fantasy, sci-fi and horror books. Why don't you take a look? Enjoy!
Urban warfare setting

Here be the artistic side of Dedoimedo, mostly. This category is dedicated to fantastic art using computer software to create and render realistic 3D objects, be they innocent sofas or fiercesome tanks or futuristic spaceship the likes of which you have never seen, all peppered with a healthy dose of dramatic ambiance, some post-processing and filtering and image manipulation, videos, and other cool effects.

End result, a visual cuisine, with just a touch of geeky. P.S. If you're not in the mood to read all the introduction, i.e. TL;DR, then feel free to jump stroll down to experience the magnificent art work!

Major categories

3D design in Google SketchUp, Kerkythea et al
Beautiful 3D art with reflections

This section is all about 3D art using Google SketchUp and Kerkythea, and to some lesser extent, other 3D software like Blender, POV-Ray and other merry fellows. Designed entirely by Dedoimedo, from tiniest scratch to most magnificent final image, plus some guest posts from people privileged enough to be my friends and artists, all at the same time. The theme revolves mostly around military, spacecraft and castles, go figure. If you're interested, you might want to take a look at the most awesome preview gallery.

Interior Design

This section is ruled by Dedoimedo's significant other. All of the content here is created and maintained by her, including the design of the various models as well as the articles. Not only does she dabble in architectural design software, she also uses Google SketchUp and Kerkythea, so you get a double dose of goodness, for free. Not the typical material for the enterpreneuring Dedoimedo reader, but then we most warmly welcome everyone, including the ladies of the opposite sex.

You can click these fine little previews to jump into each gallery ... Some of the galleries have lots of extras, like more realistic rendering and fanciful GIMP effects, so make sure to check them all! The more artistically inclined among you will surely appreciate the extra touch of color and realism. I hope you'll enjoy them!
