We're happy to announce the launch of the Magazine Interact Forum's Back Room, "The official online extension of Renderosity Magazine"! This will be the place to go for editorials, magazine excerpts, discussions, and plenty of surprises. Also, if you haven't done so yet, you can subscribe to the magazine or buy single issues. To find your way there, go to the Magazine Interact Forum, and click on the link to the Back Room at the top. Every couple of weeks, we'll be highlighting an article, review, or editorial from past issues of the magazine. Our first feature is an editorial from Issue #1, "The Digital Renaissance" by ddm (Doug McFarland).
Graphic500.jpgAbout ddm: Artist, Engineer and occasional armchair philosopher. Over the last 30 years, Doug has sold traditional large canvas artwork, developed and sold computer game software and artwork, and showed and sold traditional B&W fine art photographs. He is a published digital rendering artist, and has already booked 5 shows in 2003 of his current digital photographic impressions artwork. Throughout the 70's, he painted and sold artwork using traditional mediums such as oils and pastels. Then as co-owner of Artworx Software Company Inc. in the 80's, he developed several popular software games for the emerging computer market. In the 90's his artistic efforts turned to traditional photographic artwork, working exclusively in B&W from 35mm to 5x7 large format. Then in the late 90's he experimented with digital rendering tools such as Terragen, Poser, Bryce and 3D-Max, and was published in Taschen's 2002 Digital Beauties book. Over the last several years, he has combined his knowledge of traditional B&W wet darkroom techniques and his traditional artwork background with software and computer skills to develop a new look in photographic art. Something he calls digital photographic impressionism, a blend between art and photography. In addition to operating his own business, Final Impressions, he is also working on a limited edition digital art book and is in the process of building a community of other Alternative Process Digital Photographic artists.
