I am a practising contemporary artist, who has been using Maya for 16 years. I also use Maya for commercial work making animation and visualisations. With the Advent of NFTs and the uptake in digital practices by contemporary artists, the art world is slowly waking up to the possibilities of digital art. As an artist, I have been exploring these possibilities since the early 1980, recent interview https://vimeo.com/543801386. While the art world is very varied these days, the need for originality and the hand to eye relationship of drawing is fairly elemental. Maya's Paint Effects delivers the world's best 3D paint software, Mayas Bifrost lets artists build new and original effects, and when combined with the whole suite of tools in Maya. Contemporary artists have the most sophisticated and advanced tools to create the art of the next century. Duncan Brimsmead help me get started with PFX, I want artists to know what can be achieved withPFX, Bifrost, and the suite of Maya tools.
