Like the past years, we will not forget about the people who are in need and struggling for their lives every day. People, young and old, who have to flee from natural disasters and violence. This is why this year we are supporting the organization DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS with a donation.
This organization provides food and medical aid in places where it is urgently needed.
Maybe you would like to donate something to an organization of your choice too?

As the year draws to an end, we are thrilled to close out strong with the amazing Stefan Kang Chun Yih, our December 2018 3D Artist of the Month.

The end of the world has never looked so good! Mikhail Buleyko, our November 2018 3D Artist of the Month, envisions the remnants of a ruinous civilization in all its rusty glory.
