3D pens are not cheap but you can get starter kits to try them. They will be the next in thing because 3D is the next in thing. People will create 3D images rather than pen and paper ones or paint programme ones. I like this video because it is based on mixed media art and so you can see how all skills can be brought into play. It won’t be long before we have real adepts in 3D pen use. If you want to look at what they can do and have a more detailed review of the sorts of pens available then go to best3dpen.com. It is important to know what features and functionality they have, how to maintain them and what the issues are if there are any. officialrainbowgirl does some good reviews from experience. Knowing whether they clog, run consistently or have heating issues is something you need to determine as much as possible before you purchase one.

3Defy is a flash site which uses GPU acceleration similar to Vista or Apple’s OSX so the quality of the 3D graphics isn’t bad at all. You can take a 2D photo and turn it into a 3D wonder. There is plenty of help and support on the site for mastering the techniques if you want to improve on what you have done. There are also plenty of YouTube videos to help you as well. The effects are really quite good. The site is divided into channels so you can look at the science or art images, so even if you don’t want to make your own 3D images, you can appreciate the work of others.
