15 CGI Artworks That Look Like Photographs

 

At the intersection of art and technology you will find the incredible work of CGI artists. These artists are blurring the lines of reality with 3D renderings that look so realistic they are near impossible to distinguish from a photograph. As computer processing power grows exponentially, ground-breaking software is constantly evolving to harness it.

This is allowing artists to push the limits of what is possible in computer-generated imagery. Below you will find a showcase of some of the most talented CGI artists in the industry today. Online communities such as CG Society and CG Hub are great places to discover emerging talents in this exciting field. Be sure to click through to each artist’s profile to see more of their impressive work.

“One thing that I always tell someone who asks me about becoming a digital artist is, first of all, believe in yourself, in your capabilities and that dreams can indeed become true. Having that mindset doesn’t mean it will happen on its own though! You have to work your way through it and you have to be extremely determined and passionate about it. Eventually, that passion and determination will show up through your work. Be sure, it will be recognized by others. Always challenge yourself, never be happy with the work you have done and always seek ways to improve your skills and your work by spending time on it. It is only through that, that you can make the difference.” – Interview with keyshot.com
