Distraction-Free 3D Illustrator Rhonda is Open for Beta Testing

Posted by Kris Madden Categories: Editorials, Reviews,

Like DarkRoom or WriteRoom, which provide full-screen text-editors for writers, Rhonda offers something similar for 3D artists, with a minimalist environment and user-friendly interface. If you’re familiar with AutoDesk’s Sketchbook Pro take on no-frills 2-D illustration, you may want to check out Rhonda for working in 3D. Before you get too excited about creating the next Shrek in Rhonda, know that it just opened Beta testing and they are still working out the bugs and issues, etc.

The best part: Rhonda allows artists to start creating immediately (I recommend watching the video tutorial to get the best use of the program). Even so, the learning curve is more like a hike up MS-Paint hill, than a climb up Adobe’s Mount Everest skill-ladder.

The Rotten Fruit Tardis
Check out James Paterson’s art piece The Rotten Fruit Tardis. Paterson’s art work is an interactive website, which takes models drawn in Rhonda, to create characters within the work. You can jump to site by clicking the picture or clicking here. Enjoy.
