Jurgen Ziewe is the acknowledged master of computer-generated fantasy art. He won an international reputation from his mystical Crystal Vision cards, following up that success many bestselling posters including with his Mona Lisa and Creation. This book collects the most stunning of Ziewe's images and, for the first time, reveals the groundbreaking working methods of this pioneer of computer imaging.In New Territories, Ziewe guides the reader through the basics of working on computer instead of canvas, from creating three-dimensional backgrounds and virtual landscapes, to playing with fractals, textures and posing the human figure. The book also provides the insight behind his compelling illustrations -- inspired by Jungian dream theory and New Age symbolism. Ziewe has created landscapes that until now were only possible in the imagination -- from dolphins cavorting in space and metallic superbeings enjoying a virtual picnic to hippies perched on the hood of a VW Beetle, basking in a fractalized sun- set. For all artists graphic designers in and interested expanding their computer design skills as well as fans of fantasy and New Age art, New Territories provides an illuminating look at the artistic medium of the future.
