Hello, and welcome to the February issue of 3DCreative. We hope you all enjoyed the January issue, and are excited about what you have to look forward to in this month's issue. And what an issue we have for you! First up this month we bring you an interview with a character developer who has worked on projects like Fantastic Four, 300 and Journey to the Centre of the Earth 3D: the one and only Cesar Dacol Jr. In this interview we find out how it was to make the transition from make–up effects to computer based work.

Eric Ennis continues his V-Ray for 3ds Max series for us and in this issue he gets technical and talks us through the V-Ray settings. He shows us in depth how to use some of the settings and also gives a sneak peak at some of the special features that V-Ray has to offer.
Our very own Richard Tilbury continues his fascinating Fantasy Scene series this month by talking us through the use of photography and post-production. Find out how to get the best effects for your final image by using photographs of the things that inspired your scene.
We also bring you the project overview for the excellent image Cross of Iron by Eric Zhang. Eric goes into great detail and shows us how to start creating your image and where to look for your inspiration. We also have an excellent images gallery featuring work from Lino Masciulli, Özcan Sener, Rodolfo Roth, Alvydas Jaktkialo and many more!
Last but by no means least we continue our environmental lighting tutorial, with Andrew Finch for mentalrRay, Andrzej Sykut for V-Ray and Fredi Voss for Cinema 4D. The more observant of you may have noticed a name missing from the list, sadly we will not be able to bring you the Maya section by Joseph Harford this month due to unforeseen circumstances, but don't despair, fingers crossed we will be able to have an epic Maya double bill in the March issue.
We hope you all enjoy the new issue!
