Low Poly Fruits by Gonzalo Ausejo

Low Poly Fruits by Gonzalo Ausejo

There are some design styles that I'd really love trying at some point. One of these styles is low poly modeling, a method that truly delivers some super nice results, like the work of Peruan designer Gonzalo Ausejo. Gonzalo came up with a series called Low Poly Fruits, in which he developed some very nice, low poly, yet, juicy fruits. A great idea, and these actually look like fruits from an extraterrestrial planet in which nature is somewhat low poly. For more of his work, please visit his portfolio at Behance. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. ;)

Splendid Digital Sculptures by James W Cain

Splendid Digital Sculptures by James W Cain

Gotta love a nicely done bust. These days, with 3D printing, 3D artists have the opportunity to bring to life amazing fantasy busts, like these by James W Cain. I'd love to have one of these, proudly displayed on my shelves. James' style is pretty awesome... he has definitely got some mad modeling skills, and seeing his work 3D printed with a rough metal look to it is just jaw-dropping. For more of his work, please visit his portfolio at ArtStation. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

Smaug in Photoshop and ZBrush

Smaug in Photoshop and ZBrush

We have featured the work of André Luiz de Castro a couple of times here on Abduzeedo, you might remember the really cool Wallpaper of the Week posts in the past. Today we feature a super cool project that involves dragons but not any dragon, we are talking about the Smaug, wicked dragon from the Hobbit. The work was done using ZBrush and Photoshop and took around 35 hours. For me it would have taken 35 months. Smaug is a fictional dragon and the main antagonist in J. R. R. Tolkien's 1937 novel The Hobbit. He was a fearsome dragon who invaded the Dwarf kingdom of Erebor 150 years prior to the events described in the novel. A group of 13 Dwarves mounted a quest to take the kingdom back, aided by the wizard Gandalf and the Hobbit Bilbo Baggins. Smaug is described as "a most specially greedy, strong and wicked worm" For more information about André check out his website at https://www.behance.net/synthesys ZBRUSH & Photoshop - Making Of Stills Process

The last couple of weeks I have been reading some books about space and physics and it really fascinates me to think the grandiosity of our cosmos. At the same time it frights me the idea of how small and ephemeral our existence is relative to the universe and its immensity. Anyways, the idea of space has been always present on this blog, and we always feature projects that explore the theme and the sci-fi subject. Today we bring this really cool personal project created by Lukasz Wiktorzak titled Collier. Whole 3d scene was made in 3d max and rendered via Vray. I used Zbrush to improve rocks and some elements developed by Nick Govacko in his kitbash set to get more interesting design of drill. Postproduction in Photoshop and Nuke. Enjoy!

3D Work by Mecanique Generale

3D Work by Mecanique Generale

We have posted about Mecanique Generale in the past and after scoping their latest work I realized that it was due time for another blog post to celebrate their talent. Some projects, like Johnny Walker for example, really speak to me and inspire me to go to Photoshop and try to recreate like the good old days. Perhaps next weekend is a good time to dust off my Photoshop skills and take a crack.

Batman - Why Do We Fall

Batman - Why Do We Fall

My favorite super hero is Batman and it's because he doesn't have any super powers besides super amount of money but the idea is much more realistic than other super heros. The Dark Knight trilogy was a great example of beautiful movies without super fantastic powers. Anyway, the reason I said that is because I want to share this really cool project by Adam Spizak titled Batman - Why Do We Fall. We featured Adam so many times here but it's always good to mention how awesome his work is and of course make sure you check out his website at http://www.spizak.com/ Is Bruce Wayne really Batman? Why Do We Fall takes the concept of ravage and the idea of being corrupted and consumed by vengeance.. Who is Bruce if not a figment of imagination,a fake mask Batman wears to hide in plain sight.Created using: ZBrush, Cinema4D, Photoshop.

Have you ever played Sim City? If you did, than you probably are a big fan of city simulators. We've seen some nice titles like Cities XL, Tropico and even the latest Sim City, but there was something about Cities: Skylines that caught my attention. It's a fun, super easy, beautiful game and the player has so much freedom to build the dream city. It's just amazing, and the Steam community is pretty engaged, coming up with amazing mods for the game, such as buildings, parks and road intersections. It's definitely a game to be appreciated a LOT. Check it out below some gameplay screenshots and mods, and if you wanna try it out, check it out at Steam. Mods

Craig Minchington used one of the Mike Harrison projects as base for his 3D work and the result is quite outstanding. Mike's work was already iconic and and had a great level of depth even though it was a solid/flat composition. After Craig's full 3D version it's amazing to see how intricate the composition is and the level of details Craig added with the textures and light effects. This is my interpretation of an original project produced by Mike Harrison. We have collaborated on a few ideas before and thought that this illustration in particular would lend itself really well to 3D. I have always loved Mikes work and we are hopefully going to keep the collaborative efforts going in the future where we can fit them in.

CCAA Kids - Character Design

CCAA Kids - Character Design

Advertising is all about communication but to achieve that much work is required from a copious array of fields, from basic communication to design, illustration to 3D, and many others. The photo manipulation is the element that always attracted me, especially in terms of giving life to objects and characters that are not real. That's the case of the work that Estudio Icone created for CCCA Kids to help Brazilians learn english. Simple, illustrative, smart and of course top notch in the details and polish. Icone is a studio formed by creative minds: multidisciplinary professionals that carry art in their DNA. Essentially, our job is to produce images. But we want more than that. We seek spontaneous creativity which has no formulas and arises from the talent of each artist, from their visual culture and plurality of backgrounds. Here, each image can present a different solution. But the common goal is to achieve the result that our clients expect. That’s why we’ve completed eight years of partnerships with great brands and advertising agencies by building challenging images with the highest level of technique and refinement.
