NYC Illustrations

NYC Illustrations

We are fans of the work of Romain Trystram on Abduzeedo, we always loved his Tron-stylesque illustrations where he uses a vibrant colour palette that seems always be happening at night time. What I do thought about his latest NYC Illustration series is that the colour palette has completely reversed from night to day and the lighting is just stunning. You can easily recognize some spots from the famous New York City and wildly felt like some illustrations are also been featured on the late Casey Neistat vlogs. Hope you will enjoy these! Here is a new little series of architecture illustrations in nyc. My goal is to understand more realistic lighting and work as fast as possible on big shots. Each illustrations took me less than a day. I'll probably update new illustrations here.   More Information: https://romaintrystram.myportfolio.com.

BEAST - Digital Art

BEAST - Digital Art

Hearing news from Adode MAX where they introduced (coming soon) the Project Felix. A product where you’ll be able to easily create 2D and 3D assets, that sounds like it could be amazing. While it’s coming soon, we rather appreciate what’s been done by artists in Autodesk 3DS MAX where I feel there is more control for your composites, lighting and etc. Let’s take a look of what Margarita Zhitnik and Denis Zhitnik have been working on for their piece called: BEAST. Other than getting inspired by Elysium and Death Race, I can’t stop referring the background with the TVs and Graffiti to the Flash’s lair from the upcoming Justice League movie. I was inspired by such films as Elysium and Death Race and I wanted to do something similar. Car I did in Zbrush and the GTR's model and props from libraries. Thank you Denis Zhitnik for help with render and materials! More information via Behance.

Movie Poster Series by Laura Racero

Movie Poster Series by Laura Racero

We’ve been encountering a several designers having their take in movie posters. I mean who doesn’t love movies? We are still waiting in line for movies and eating popcorn! We are still embracing the movie experience at its best. With the amount of content we can find online about our favourite movies, with that much content it’s always great what you can stir up with a redesign and a concept. Especially when you just watched the movie and you’re feeling inspired to create. We are taking at some of the movie concepts from Laura Racero who is a freelance art director, designer and illustrator in Madrid, Spain. We’ll also include some of her personal concepts where she has done a beautiful job at blending elements together from stock photos. Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny." – Aristotle   More information: http://lauraracero.com.

Skull Candy - Photo manipulation

Skull Candy - Photo manipulation

We used to feature more digital art and photo manipulation but we felt it was getting a bit too much of the same. Of course there's always space for beautiful artwork like the Skull Candy project shared by Lorett Foth. It was a project done in Photoshop, 3ds Max and Zbrush. The quality of the composition and details make us believe that the scene was real, especially the lighting. This was fun project I was working on for Skull Candy. It was interesting to match the hair exactly to the preexisting photo. I used 3ds max, Hair Farm, Zbrush, Vray and Photoshop Photo manipulation Process About Lorett Foth Industrial designer by trade, she specialized in 3D visualization. She has been working mainly in creating high resolution images for print advertising. My main interest lies in creating animals, characters and anything organic.

 Alphabet Series by Bogdan Dreava

Alphabet Series by Bogdan Dreava

We’ve featured many series that focus their theme on the Alphabet, It’s a great practice because every single letter has their own properties and characteristics. We are taking a closer look at the work from Bogdan Dreava and his minimal approach at this take on the Alphabet Series. Bogdan is mainly a photographer based in Timișoara, Romania. What I do like about this series it’s the minimal use of elements and the play with the light and shadow. It definitely create a tone to the collection and the color palette just enhance well the overall experience. Hope you will enjoy these! Adventure of a simple sphere in alphabet world.   More information: http://www.bogdand.com.

The Work of Michał Karcz

The Work of Michał Karcz

We’ve featured the work of Michał Karcz before on Abduzeedo, it’s been quite a long time ago. Looking now at his work, it’s nothing but the same impressive level of detailed art mixed with an imaginative and fantasy world. I always take the time to really look at every single details to corners from his pieces and trying to wonder what’s the story behind it. The combination of digital photography and painting totally works well for his art. The universe that Michal is taking pleasure to make are places that don’t exist coming from his dreams, desires, imagination and fears. For those you won’t know about Michal, he is an artist based in Warsaw, Poland that graduated from High School of Art in Warsaw. My inspiration comes from many artists and it doesn't matter if they get through to me by the sense of vision or hearing. I can tell that music has the biggest impact on my work. It’s an inseparable element with pictures in my mind, a kind of sound illustration to a visible scenery. These two things hit me with the strongest intensity. Since many years, many of You helped me to understand that I’ve chosen the right way for my self realization. It gave me an opportunity to show my world and to share it. This is what I’m doing, this is what I love to do and it’s still not everything what I want to say. Each day I see more, I’m exploring more things which I want to share with You. This website is the key to my world. This is what I have collected in my soul since I was born until now.   More information: http://www.michalkarcz.com.

Illustrative Animals

Illustrative Animals

I’ve always been impressed about the level of details when a designer/artist work on symmetrical art and especially with animal faces. It’s not a new concept but it’s really interesting to witness every single perspective based on their background, inspiration and what drives them to go forward with this series. We are taking a closer look of the work of Rich Field also known as Fieldinspired. He’s an illustrator based in London, UK; you should definitely check out his shop where you’ll find limited prints of his art to buy. In Rich’s process, you’ll find a hand-drawn start with a finishing touch digitally that can go with a minimum of 80 layers to 220+ layers on certain pieces. Totally worth checking it out! I’ve always been fascinated with the beauty of the world around me. From the perfect gradient sunsets form, to the complex symmetry on a seemingly simple leaf. The way nature creates beautiful design so effortlessly has always filled me with wonder.   More information: http://www.fieldinspired.com.

Geisha - Digital Art

Geisha - Digital Art

We featured Retoka before here on ABDZ but they seem to keep shipping inspiring work. I am a fan of the way they manipulate images and the GEISHA project is simply beautiful. This particular project got me excited to sit down and open Photoshop to try to recreate it. Maybe that might be my weekend activity. Now back to the project. The color palette and the diagonal lines definitely work quite well. It also brings me back some good memories of 5 years ago when we used to post more about graphic design and digital art. Retoka is a team of graphic designer and illustrator from Barcelona, Spain. The tools they used for this digital art project were Photoshop and Lightroom.

Ford GT40

Ford GT40 by INK Studio

I am always impressed by the level of quality and details that 3D images have nowadays. One industry that you see this exemplified is the auto industry. There are no more ads of cars that use real cars, it's all computer generated images. INK Studio illustrates that amazingly well with the beautiful work done with GT40 project. I love everything about this project, from the simplicity and minimalistic approach to showcase the even more stunning Ford GT40. To mark its historic victory at the 2016 Le Mans, we lined the legendary Ford GT up for our Plainbody treatment in the third installment of our series. Stripped of all livery and set against a clear white backdrop, these entirely CG images give full focus to the car’s brutal yet beautiful design. - Behance Ford GT40 About INK Studio INK is an award-winning production studio that delivers crafted digital content across film, print and interactive platforms.
