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.

Eerie Illustrations of an Apocalyptical World

Eerie Illustrations of an Apocalyptical World

The past few weeks I have been posting more about editorial design, interfaces and some web design. I have been focusing my time on those subjects because it's part of my job but I never stop checking out illustrations and digital art projects for inspiration. A couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon the work of Yuri Shwedoff on our Daily Inspiration. It was the artwork with the X-wing fighter. I was amazed by the style and mood of the illustration so for this post I want to feature a little bit more about Yuri's work. One of the things that really caught my attention about Yuri's work is the subject that he explores. It's an apocalyptical world of old spaceships and eclipses. It reminds me a bit of some scenes of the new Star Wars movie, mixed with a dark Mad Max. I love when I have this feeling when seeing illustrations, they really make my imagination fly.
