Uncommon Paradigm is a 3D Science Fiction Art Book as seen through the camera lens of a fictitious space faring photographer. Storyline and artworks are created by Sim Pern Chong.
The images were created during the free times over a period of several years. During the course of it, no expensive tools were used to create the concepts. The software programs used were mainly those covered on this website, primarily Blender, Sculptris, GIMP, Inkscape and Carrara Pro. Besides realising the author’s creative vision, this 3D artbook also serves as a demonstration of what’s achievable using free and cost-effective programs. As best as possible, the illustrations relied on free or low cost alternatives to achieve the results.
‘I loved that! Very cool futuristic vehicle models, awesome landscape renderings. I can only imagine the time and work that it took to create the scenes in the book. Very detailed and they had an aura of seeming real, as though I could believe that somewhere in the distant future such things might exist.’ – Ccbar
