We are taking a look at some photography work from LM Chabot for a project entitled: Still Optimist. Published on Behance, this is a collaboration with Ponymtl and Sid Lee Collective. Behind Pony, we have a Montreal-based artist named Gabrielle Laïla Tittley who is releasing a new summer collection called: Still Optimiste. Coming out with a colourful palette of images, I love the avant-garde attention of details and especially when it’s an initiative coming from my hometown. Hope you dig it as well!

Today we would like to share this tutorial from our friends from Adobe Photoshop in collaboration with image creator Ted Chin released exclusively for their Instagram channel. You'll be able to learn how to create a Double Exposure Portrait with Photoshop. I know we don't usually share tutorials on Friday but why not! Carefully follow these steps with your own images and create your own experiments. Enjoy! This tutorial is by Ted Chin who is an artist/image creator based in San Francisco, USA. You should definitely check out his site for tutorials and make sure to follow him on Instagram. Crafting what I believe is creative, I use photography and modern technology to manipulate it. I am able to recreate what I imagine. Result Hey guys! It’s Ted (@eye.c) here. Today I'm going to show you how to create a double exposure portrait in just a few simple steps. Swipe through to see a mini-tutorial! • Using photos with simple backgrounds will help with the masking process. First, open the portrait (base) photo in #Photoshop. We are going to mask the background out and create the double exposure effect with the shape of the model. • Use the magic wand tool (W), click and select the background. Go to Select -> hold the "shift" key and click “Select and Mask”. Smooth the edge with the "Refine Edge Tool", then click ok. • Click on "Add a mask” then, "Create a new layer." Move the new layer to the bottom of the portrait. Select the "Paint Bucket Tool", or press "G", and fill in the white background. • Paste the second image, and adjust the image with "Levels" (Ctrl + L). Make sure the adjustment layer is clipped to the second image only. We want to make sure the sky is bright/clean enough so it's easier for selection. Hold (Ctrl + left click) on the portrait's mask we created earlier, then create a new layer mask for the landscape photo. • Un-link the mask by clicking the symbol in between, and re-adjust the landscape photo to the way you prefer. • Duplicate the Portrait layer and move the copy to the top of the landscape layer. Then change the blending mode to "Lighten". • I decided to add other elements (flowers) by using the same blending mode (Lighten) from the last step. • If you think the white background is too boring, you can try to add a different background, too. And this is how you can create a simple double exposure portrait! A post shared by Adobe Photoshop (@photoshop) on Mar 31, 2017 at 9:00am PDT Step 1 Hey guys! It’s Ted (@eye.c) here.

We would like to feature the work from Julien Clauzier and his illustration series named: Landscape Collection Vol. 1.

Personal project on landscape / space illustrations badges.
Internet.org by Facebook is a art direction and digital art project shared by our favorite studio, ARS Thanea. We posted about them and featured their work so many times, actually every time they post something new because their work is quite inspiring. This time we are sharing the project they shared on their Behance profile for the Internet.org for Facebook. It's an advertising campaign, but we tend to focus on the technical aspects of the digital art and art direction for this post. Background Internet Access is considered a basic human right together with Freedom of Speech, Gender Equality, Water and Shelter by the United Nations. Each person that comes online has the potential to create and share knowledge that improves the internet for all. That’s why Internet.org by Facebook is exploring ways to get the unconnected half of the world online. To date, Internet.org has brought more than 19 million people in 38 countries online through a range of services — like installing wireless hotspots, beaming internet from the sky and creating platforms that enable data-free access. How could the internet be considered the World Wide Web if only half of the world’s population is connected? We created a series of print and digital ads with real cut-in-half objects to tell the story of an incomplete internet and its potential. So we all can realize how much music, art, stories and knowledge is missing online.

We would like to share this digital art illustration by Lukasz Poland for a limited edition gift pack tube. There’s something quite powerful about this illustration and I love the use of Double Exposure mixed with a level of details that can only make you stop and appreciate every single part of this image. Stunning work and I wish this was a series with multiple animals. Maybe in the near future! Published via Behance , Lukasz is an illustrator based in Toruń, Poland. There isn’t much information about him but we look forward to see more of his work.
Last month, we were all smashed by the trailer of the controversy and still in the making movie: Ghost in the Shell. I personally watched the trailer and loved it. I liked how they make an effort to keep it close as possible to the animated series. It’s also a great thing to have the Creator of GITS onboard as well. We are taking at the work from Furio Tedeschi and his 3D/digital art contribution to the project. Furio Tedeschi is a 3D character artist over Paramount Pictures . where he is currently based in Johannesburg, South Africa. He has created a lot of characters going from the Robocop that we've featuerd before, Stars Wars, Batman and even that monster from Stranger Things. Some of the modeling work I did for the GITS collaborative project. Special Thanks to Gavriil Afanasyev Klimov , Christopher James Ford , Colin Thomas and Vaughan Ling without these guys this project would not have been possible.
We are sharing an illustration poster series about Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy by Krzysztof Domaradzki. I have been a huge fan of this trilogy because it’s a modern take of what Batman could have been in our times. With Christopher Nolan genius direction, it’s a trilogy that was truly memorable filled with so many great moments of cinematography. Along those lines, Krzysztof’s work on this illustration sets the tone right with its monochromatic colour scheme. Krzysztof Domaradzki is a talented artist, designer and illustrator based in Poznań, Poland. We’ve featured his work before on Abduzeedo and it has always been a stunning combination of various mediums of drawing, typography, graphic design and of course illustration. In his Words The concept stage was a long and exhausting process. I knew from the very start that I wanted to keep the trilogy black and white (I think that the monochromatic color scheme really fits the character and the dark, moody tone of Nolan's films ). It took several attempts to find the right balance between the story and the characters. I was first approached in 2014 to do a single poster dedicated to Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy and again later in 2015 commissioned to create 3 separate screen printed posters dedicated to each part of the trilogy.

New York City, it’s been quite a long time I last visited this city. It must be pretty at this time of year with the winter wonderland, well we are featuring an illustration/animation project with Paris-based illustrator Florent Hauchard with Parallel Studio for New York Times. The final result creates the rightful atmosphere of a cityscape scene with so much history and architectural features. Florent Hauchard is an illustrator and graphic designer based in Paris, France. I recently had the pleasure (and honor) to work with Parallel Studio for The New York Times. As a collaborative work with the team over Parallel Studio , please make sure to watch the little GIFs, they are super subtle and makes you wanna appreciate one view per image at the time.
I am a big fan of the brand Under Armour, in my opinion the quality of their clothing is just that good and I really do love how they innovate all the time with the performance of their material to enhance your workout or your everyday life. Also every time I looked at their latest imagery, I can’t help to notice the beautiful work from Mike Campau in collaboration with Christopher Massaro, Kristian Espinosa and 9bStudios (Yazan Malkosh, Omar Malkosh, Maram Stash, and Jessica Kim). What I do enjoy about their work is how detailed it is and you can’t almost tell the difference from a photograph. Images created for launch of Swacket for Under Armour... part sweatshirt, part jacket. Full Jackets were created CGI using Marvelous Designer, Clo 3d, and MODO. Macro details were shot in studio and post processed to match campaign. More Information: http://mikecampau.com.
Luis de la Barrera-Montenegro is a visual artist, 3D, motion artist based in Madrid, Spain. He has been making an interesting 3D digital art series about our everyday tools as we all commonly know them about. But in his series, he actually replaced the elements or shall we call them components used instead of actually making 3D renders of the tool itself. The results are so clever and remarkable. Hope you will enjoy this collection! More Information via Behance.
Today is the day where the movie Rogue One: a Star Wars Story, it’s pretty exciting and are you gonna watch it today or this Weekend?

Let’s take a look at the work of Pixel Jeff who is a Pixel Artist based in Taipei, Taiwan. Let’s enjoy his series at making some different landscape backgrounds with the main characters from Rogue One, including the Darth Vader. More Information via Behance.
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.
This poster series has a lot of great elements that we love on Abduzeedo, first of all we’ve always been fan of everything related with the word: neon. Posters always have been one of our first love of design way before everything went digital with UI, UX, Interfaces and etc. Let’s take a closer look at the work of Tarek Okbir who is a graphic designer currently based Liège, Belgium. Other than focusing his work on UI/UX and Interface design, Tarek created his amazing poster series about very popular artists. As he called it the Music Edition, you can recognize artists such as Lana Del Rey, Alicia Keys and more. Hope you will like it! Hello, here are some illustrations I worked on, part of my Bad Neon project. In order: Stromae, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore, M.I.A, Alicia Keys, Drake, Lana Del Rey More information: http://www.fnkfrsh.be.
