About Us

3DTotal was founded in 1999 as a simple 3D resource website. Over the following years the site has evolved into one of the premier CG art websites in the world, offering a variety of training products, an inspirational gallery, a free texture library and hundreds of free tutorials on a variety of subjects.

With the continuing growth of our 2D following, it seemed a natural progression to create a dedicated 2D website to run alongside 3DTotal, resulting in the birth of LayerPaint. We wish LayerPaint to be a definitive resource for digital painting, creating a friendly and educational environment that not only helps budding and experienced CG artists alike, but also showcases some of the best computer generated artwork in the world.

We look forward to achieving the same loyal following that 3DTotal has! Ltd | 29 Foregate Street, Worcester, Worcestershire, WR1 1DS, UK
