ADVERTISE


I often visit your site just to gaze in awe at the magnificence of your graphics... I would have had to bow down in respect to your use of apparent lighting effects. I study them, but still can't see how you do it. But I most certainly appreciate your work...

This page partially "summarizes" 3D animation files and renderings otherwise scattered around this web site. All modeled vehicles can be custom-animated for various scenes and produced for virtually any media, including print, web, DVD, video and film. To order existing artwork or to commission a new project, please contact Anatoly Zak.

Please see below approximate fees for 3D work.

ATTENTION: QuickTime plugin is required to play animations on this page. Download it here.
