So Hexy

So Hexy

One thing I've always wanted to learn but have never been able to focus on was 3D. Despite the lack of skills in this field I still love checking out 3D work that designers put together on Behance and other websites. The project So Hexy is one of these projects, a really cool mix of 3D with an awesome idea, the hexagons creating cubicle areas. The project was created by Anatoly Bazarob and it's definitely worth checking it out. Hello! My name is Anatoly Bazarob (Kid Cut), i'm 24 years old designer from Moscow. I got job at local studio, but freelance is so deep in my soul, that I can say it "goodbay". On weekends I draw my 3D-fantasy, by the way, there is my "magnum opus" — concept of level-design videogame about hex. Each room is a single level based on that geometrical figure. Pay attention — every room name have reference to "hex". Weekend, vacations, cold evenings — it's all i need :)

NOMBOR 3D Typography

NOMBOR 3D Typography

We have posted about 3D typography quite a few times here on ABDZ but it's never too much especially when the project that we are featuring has the level of quality and details like the one created by Machineast, a design directing duo Fizah Rahim (www.behance.net/fizahrahim) & Rezaliando (www.behance.net/rezaliando). The project title is Nombor. Just scroll after the break and you will understand why we are sharing it. Nombor means 'numbers' in Malay. After doing the alphabet and numbers for #36daysoftype project, we decided to continue exploring this style into a whole new series of the number 0 to 9.

Cinema 4D Noise Palette by Mario Tran Phuc

I really enjoy when a designer comes up with a sweet user interface. Who doesn't enjoy using an application with a beautiful interface? I know I do! Mario Tran Phuc is a German designer that had the idea of designing a 3D noise palette for Cinema 4D. Here you can see part of the outcome of that idea. It's pretty awesome and very detailed. I'd love to use an app that looks this good. For more of Mario's work, please visit his portfolio at Behance! I hope you enjoy these. Cheers! ;)

30 Years of Nike Air Max

30 Years of Nike Air Max

Last Friday Richard Hawkings, a great motion designer that works with me at Google shared with me this amazing work done for the campaign to celebrate the 30 years of Nike's iconic Air Max. The work was done by ManvsMachine, a design & motion studio from London, UK. The work is so good that I asked myself what was 3D and what was real due to the quality of the texture maps. They were kind enough to share a little making of and we had to share it here with you. ManvsMachine is a multi D&AD and Cannes Gold Lion award winning design and motion studio. They work with forward thinking clients to create progressive and effective visual communication for a global audience. For more information check out http://manvsmachine.co.uk/ We worked closely with Nike Sportwear to design, direct and animate the campaign for the brand new Air Max Zero. Along side this we also crafted the brand language for Air Max Day — a global celebration of the iconic Air Max shoe. Video Stills An intricate project with many different elements to bring together. From building and filming Tinker Hatfield’s design studio, to 3D scanning nine different Air Max shoes and refining the design of our Air Max day type which went on to be constructed and featured in stores globally.

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

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

Collier

Collier

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.
