You revolutionized television visual effects, took us to amazing new worlds, turned our dreams into something real, and inspired an entire generation of CG artists. Thank you Ron Thornton! We will never forget you.
The LightWave 3D Group, a division of NewTek, Inc.
I remember learning about Ron waaaaay back in the early 90s from an article in Amiga Shopper magazine (I think it was), I was blown away by the story of his journey of where he came from to how he got to where he was at that point in his career.
It was a true inspiration. He was a true inspiration. He will be missed.
This month we shine the spotlight on a pretty awesome project: LightWave 3D Artists Olivier and Laurent Giboulot share with us an interesting 3D project recently made for Westside, a French company that offers a selection of products from the cycle to urban skating. Artist Farkas Ekho Zsolt turned to LightWave to recreate Johann Peter Krafft's 2D painting in 3D, with stunning results. Take a look at the amazing Gundam tribute video created by the Italian LightWave 3D artist Antonio Vallorani. Grab also a free sample scene from Oscar Anchondo and if you haven't already done so, don't forget to check out the latest version of LWCAD.
