 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.

The "Sweet" Work of Andre Caputo

The "Sweet" Work of Andre Caputo

We just wanna warn you that the following article might be very "sweet" and you might get temptations at getting a snack. We just wanna warn you first! :) Let's talk about the ads that we are all encountered every single day. According to CBS News, we are exposed to an average to 5000 ads per day. This is an enormous number when we all know that there are only 24 hours in a day. Among ads about cars, events, campaigns and others; we'll see a lot of advertising about food. They triggered temptations to simply fulfill your desire to eat. Let's take a closer look at the work of Andre Caputo, he is a CGI artist and graphic designer based in São Paulo, Brazil. What I love about his work is how close it looks like a photograph, even though we know in the back of our mind that it's not real. Beautifully done! Here I gather: passion for working with image creation; creativity; disposition to search for new techniques and innovation; esthetic sense and seek for the best quality; eagerness for a great relationship with clients; and discipline, that allows the projects to be delivered on time.   More information: https://ac.myportfolio.com.

By the different techniques and how you can express yourself through words/quotes and choose how you wanna express it.

Royal Caribbean Productions: 1887 Project

Royal Caribbean Productions: 1887 Project

Luminous Creative Imaging is a group of talented creatives that focuses on putting their team together to create beautiful visuals. As simple as it sounds, Luminous specialized in 3D/CGI, Illustration, Digital Art, Manipulation, Photography and just to name a few and they are currenly based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. For the project we are featuring today, we are giving you guys a closer of the "1887" project for Royal Caribbean Productions. ...we were asked to work on a challenging project for the Royal Caribbean Productions. They had a 1887 steampunk styled ice show planned and needed a cool visual for their promotional poster. We were asked to design and sketch out the visual and all the elements in it. After this we proceeded modeling and texturing everything in 3D. Once all the elements were put togeher we proceeded lighting the scene, rendering it and bringing it to post. In post many elements were added (like a sky, smoke, etc) to finish the piece. The skater couple was illustrated from scratch based on people in the 1800's and then upfraded and shaded with photographic material. Great project to have worked on and very happy with the result.

The Conceptual Work of Rafael Merino

The Conceptual Work of Rafael Merino

To me, conceptual work/art has more than one meaning. It could expressed as being abstract or freshly innovative. For Rafael Merino, his work is way more above that, it's the creation of engagements combined with graphics for all kinds of purposes. Currently based in Madrid, Spain; Rafael focuses his work in art direction, visual identity and motion. My first aim is to tell stories with my images, working as a graphics' craftsman.
