The Unstoppable Beeple with the Everydays Series

The Unstoppable Beeple with the Everydays Series

We are not shy to admit how much we love Beeple's work on ABDZ. We just can't help to appreciate his insane creativity and perseverance at making new work every single day for as long as we can remember. This might be his 4th or 5th feature on ABDZ and we won't be stopping there. If you don't know who is Beeple, he is an artist based in Charleston, SC USA and focusing in Digital Art, Graphic Design, Motion Graphics. I've been doing everydays for the last ten years (haven't missed a day!) and I am currently on my 11th round of everydays. This year I'll be doing a render everyday using Cinema4D and instead of trying to learn new software, will be focusing on some of the fundamentals like color, composition, value etc.... :) More Links Learn more about Beeple at beeple-crap.com Follow Beeple on Instagram Follow his work on Behance Everydays Illustration

Winter Sport Character Design by Dora Vincze

We are delighted to share a timely post today by Hungarian-based illustrator Dora Vincze showcasing some fun illustrations celebrating winter sports. Just in time for the Olympics in South Korea, these whimsical, animated character illustrations have us beaming from ear to ear. The Winter Olympics began in 1924 in Chamonix, France as a major international affair and continued to take place every four years. Having evolved since their inception, sports and disciplines have been added and subtracted over time. The sports Vincze features here such as Alpine skiing and snowboarding have earned a permanent spot on the Olympic programme. For this work Vincze has employed Photoshop and After Effects to achieve the cheery end result. We don't have much further detail to wax poetic on this talented young illustrator but you can check her Instagram for more discovery and inspiration.

Forgotten Temple Illustration by Rui Gonçalves

Forgotten Temple Illustration by Rui Gonçalves

Let's take a look at this rather cool illustration by art director/graphic designer Rui Gonçalves. Based in Barcelona, Spain, Rui is a true passion when it comes to graphic design and also art direction. Judging by his Behance Profile, ideas and concepts seems to be his forté. Today we are a case study at the Forgotten Temple Illustration, a commission project ended up being a personal experimentation. My favourite part of this illustration is the layers of details from what's underneath the sea, the dinosaur fossil is quite a nice touch. This illustration also reminds me of his Everything is okay, until it's not. project that we have featured on ABDZ. What started as a commission ended in a personal project. I wanted to push my isometric illustration skills a bit more so i decided to turn this idea, which originally was designed for a client, into a personal project - "Forgotten Temple". Hope you guys like it! More Links Learn more about Rui Gonçalves at ruimgoncalves.com Follow Rui's work on Behance Previous Feature on ABDZ Illustration & Process   Quick Process

Clever Animal Illustrations made of circles, triangles and squares

Clever Animal Illustrations made of circles, triangles and squares

Fantastic Digital Art by Dmitry Zaviyalov

Fantastic Digital Art by Dmitry Zaviyalov

Digital art can take you anywhere, it is just about let your imagination run free. Dmitry Zaviyalov shared this incredible illustration on his Behance profile that really accomplishes that. It features a village and it has this eerie mood. It reminds me of Zelda Breath of the Wild game to be hones, and that had become my favorite game of the year and probably ever. I was so amazed by the details and the style that I had to feature Dmitry's illustration here.  Decided to spend a few days of my hard-earned holiday time to remind myself how much fun it can be to work on something personal. And it is fun! Hope the result is no to shabby either.  Dmitry is an illustrator from Tallinn, Estonia. I highly recommend that you check out his work at https://www.behance.net/creativedestructor/ - he was also kind enough to offer a step-by-step showing how he did this piece.

Electrifying Digital Art for Rock in Rio Music Festival

Electrifying Digital Art for Rock in Rio Music Festival

Raphael FS shared a quite awesome digital art project on his Behance profile. It's a project for the Rock in Rio festival, which is a super popular music event that started in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Raphael was in charge of doing post-production for one of the artworks provided by the agency Estúdio Ícone. He mentions that he started with that one but ended up recreating all of them to give a new look for the campaign. It's a quite awesome set of artwork, it brings me back the early 2000s when I was really into light effects and creating things like that in Photoshop. Of course this is way better than anything I could have made. I also recommend you to check out Raphael's full portfolio. He is a Brazilian designer and digital artist based in Rio de Janeiro with some beautiful work. For more information visit: http://www.raphaelfs.com/ Digital Art
