While we are delighted with our growth, it hasn’t come cheap. The magazine staff invest not only long hours but pour their hearts into this at costs sometimes more than they bargain for. It is so very easy to work beyond exhaustion when you are caught up “fighting the good fight” and doing what you love—helping artists from all over the world get exposure and expertise in one fell swoop—not to mention the creation of a publication as beautiful as
this one.

To that end, I’d like to express a bittersweet farewell to those staffers who are no longer part of the team. To you, who became part of this family, and on whose shoulders rest many of the reasons for our success against calamity and the odds, goes a thank you beyond anything words can convey and wishes for success and happiness wherever life takes you. In particular goes special recognition to deemarie, who got us out of the toilet on more than one occasion in addition to being a constant source of encouragement and a good friend. This issue will see her last completed, though her efforts extend deep into the next as well. An exceptional Managing Editor, she leaves us ginormous shoes to fill and she will be missed.

In keeping with this reflective mood I find myself in, I’ve been sitting here reviewing the content we’ve provided over these four issues. I think it’s safe to say that we’ve fulfilled our initial promises—Renderosity magazine has certainly been a wonderful celebration of not only the art and talent of the members of Renderosity, but a fantastic tool for anyone wishing to learn something about computer graphics, regardless of their level of expertise. As we warned in our very first issue, we have indeed jammed content into every nook and cranny of these pages, perhaps at the expense of white space, but always with the intention of giving readers more.

Looking forward, we intend to keep doing it. Keep Celebrating. Keep Learning. Keep the fire going. It really is about the art.

Special Thanks to:

silverVery high quality printing, design is very good, and the variety of content and articles gives everyone something to sink their teeth into. Great job gang!
BRY-NIt just keeps getting betternbetter!!! Issue 3 is mindblowing
LadyJaivenOh wow, I just ordered my subscription on the 22nd of September, and got my 1st issue on the 25th! None of that 6 to 8 weeks for delivery of 1st issue here ;) When I opened it, I was impressed at the quality of the articles and the tutorial by Picky on cloth painting is amazing.. There is so much information, not to mention pointers, included in this magazine. The bonus CD was awesome. I love this magazine! :) I look forward to my other issues ;) -- Jai :)
leedsHI Folks. Just have to tell you I am so impressed with Renderosity Magazine, issue 3. It is just exceptionally well written. I will enjoy using and rereading it. If you feel you can devote one tutorial every so often to beginners in Poser 5, I would be most grateful. Many of the tutorials seem placed toward the more skilled users, but we all have to start somewhere. Thanks for this great Magazine. Cheers Leeds

I wish they had more Poser straight items, and less other things. Most of the stuff with Poser is how to use more expensive items with it.

Sounds great can't wait to get my issue :O)

Hey -I'd buy it just for that cover alone!

I've enjoyed the tutorials and cd quite a bit but have found the software reviews less than objective.

By: zapper1977 on 1/27/03
does need more content, tutorials from all the software forums,ligthwave, poser,3dmax,maya,Adobe photo shop,Pantshop pro, etc,etc. great magazine but like #dworld they lots of tutorials that should be the real focus is how the people create using the software, the magazine has potential just need to put it all in writting. It could be better than the other magizines really easy just need MORE content.
