Creating Striking Graphics with Maya and Photoshop

Featured in the new book "Creating Striking Graphics with Maya and Photoshop" by Daniel Gray and published by Sybex.

"When it comes to blending the strength of Maya and Photoshop with the power of natural and industrial imagery, Meats Meier has definitely found the right recipe. His otherworldly images and brilliant construction cross the line between mechanical nature and nature itself. Machines become organic structures. Metal takes on life. The essence of form is reduced to wireframes?not just 3D wireframes, but actual frames of wire. When you see it, you want to believe it."

Very impressive book – Amazon link <here>

3d World Article

"Pro tips: Retouching your renders" article published in 3d World magazine, issue # 46.

purists consider any tweaking of a 3D image after rendering as cheating
– but if the quality of the finished product is what counts, why not
use every weapon in your armoury? As award-winning artist Meats Meier
reveals, a little Photoshop work can not only improve your images, but
help to create effects that are difficult to achieve in most 3D


thanks Jim Thacker
