I like to spend my time browsing Behance, DeviantArt, Dribbble and other websites to see what people are doing. I used to do that back in the 90s and early 2000s with books, going to bookstores and just browsing through design books and magazines tirelessly. The web made this process easier in terms of the amount of information and talent we can draw inspiration from but more difficult when it comes to seeking quality. Some works simply stand out among the rest. That's the case of Giampaolo Miraglia illustrations. Giampaolo is an art director and graphic designer based in Rome.
Visual Effects by Anselm von Seherr-Thoss
Truly an inspiration, Anselm von Seherr-Thoss is one of the top visual effects and 3D particle artists around. Not only has he spent years within his craft, he’s worked on favorites like James Cameron’s “Avatar” and “The A-Team”.
Visual effects is quite the tough industry. Anselm has worked his way to the top, though his journey wasn’t easy. After working at Frantic Films, which eventually became Prime Focus, he broke off to form his own company, Incendii. Larger visual effects companies usually hire him to participate on large projects whether they’re movies that take 6-8 months on end, or television commercials that take about 2-3 months. No matter the project, visual effects and 3d design goes through a lot of stages in the process; changes are always made.
