3D Artworks

The 3D artworks are 3D images generated from computers. The subjects fall into the fantastic and imaginary. They can provide scenes or landscapes that would not be possible in photography. The subjects, inspired by the reality, are beyond the real world.


The abstract wallpapers are images that do not necessarily represent real-life objects. They create effects with forms, colors and movement.


The animals in this category are divided mainly between mammals, fish, birds and reptiles. There are wild and domestic animals from around the world. Topics include the terrestrial and marine life. You can admire them in their natural habitat as urban.

Automobiles, Cars, Trucks

Dream cars and special vehicles. These cars are not usually ordinary.


The aviation covers several flying vehicles by motorized means or in free flight. The aviation diversifies mainly between commercial and recreational. With over 100 years, it still makes people dream as it was over a century ago. It is the symbol of the conquest of the sky.


Boats are one of the oldest means of transport. They allowed the fishermen to go further to get fish, but they also allowed civilizations to cross the oceans to conquer new continents. Today, we find small boats as recreational sailboats and luxury yachts, but also huge transport ships and cruise liners for cruises.

Buildings and architecture

The architecture is a way for each civilization to construct its buildings and infrastructure. Within the same civilization, we can recognize different times by the appearance of its buildings. The architecture also applies to bridges, public spaces and other monuments. The architecture is part of the heritage.

Celebrations and holidays

The celebrations are rituals that gather people periodically at a specific time and also often at a particular place. People hold celebrations for religious reasons. The holidays are highlighted by tradition or pleasure.

Dinosaurs and fossils

Dinosaurs belong to a group of animals of the clade Dinosauria. They related to reptiles. They lived from about 231 million years ago (Triassic period) to until about 66 million years ago (Cretaceous period). Their size varied to very small to very large. They are considered the biggest creatures that Earth has known.

A mass extinction event, the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event, killed about 75% of plant and animal species on Earth. The event is related to an asteroid impact.

Based on fossil's studies, birds have evolved from a group of dinosaurs during the Jurassic period.

Fossils are the preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms of the past.

The paleontology studies the prehistoric life as such as dinosaurs and fossils.


These drawings are modified images from photographs and drawings created by computers. The themes are varied as the colors. Your screen could be ice or fire, but also reflect an abstract stage.


The elements in this section are fire, ice, snow and water. These elements adopt variable shapes, textures and colors. Water and fire have an elusive appearance unless you take a photograph. They carve our landscapes and make them unique places by the way they modified the ground. They are often associated to weather and change with seasons.


The flowers are often associated with spring. Their shapes, colors and fragrances always create a sense of wonder. They often last for a short time and make us appreciate the rare moments. Although they give the impression not to move, some flowers such as water and sunflowers follow the sun changes with precision. Others, being insectivorous, give the impression of animal beings by eating insects that dare to venture inside them.

Food, Vegetables, Fruits, Drinks

It changes its color from sunrise to sunset and also its patterns with the great variety of clouds forming in unique shapes.
