Rendered art is computer-generated visual art that is created by an artist who uses special software to design, model and pose objects, cameras and light sources in a virtual three-dimensional space and then have the computer render two-dimensional images of the scene.
Usually the rendering attempts to be as photorealistic as possible, where the ultimate target are renderings that are indistinguishable from photographs. Some rendering software also has modes for non-photorealistic rendering that results in images that resemble drawings in a variety of media and styles, such as pencil, charcoal, or crayons.
