Coming out from a Weekend with the Emmy Awards, we’ve witnessed a rise of so many incredible TV Series that really gives the new edge to our experience at home. The mighty team over at Ars Thanea were given to create the key visual for HBO and celebrating their 25th anniversary. Imagine all these famous characters in one picture, the result is quite impressive. Ars Thanea is an award-winning CGI Studio with such a talented team based in Warsaw, Poland and New York City, USA. We are great fans of their work and their mixture of “Avante Garde” style is like no others and they got the opportunity to work with a huge variety of popular known brands like Ubisoft, Nike, Discovery Channel and a lot more. For over 25 years we've been witnessing the remarkable stories of our favorite characters from HBO Original series. And again, we’ve been invited to create a Key Visual to sum up the amazing TV experience given to us by HBO. Over 45 characters (including Dragon) in one pic! Happy Anniversary HBO Asia!

I haven't posted about photo manipulation in a white, I have been quite focused on editorial and branding more because of the style, however I am a fan of digital illustration. I also used to love spending my weekends mixing photos to create what I wanted and that's what Ankur Patar did for Adobe Stock - Lost Masterpiece - Rembrandt. He simply recreated one of Rembrandt's masterpieces that was stolen titled "Storm on the Sea of Galilee". It's a classic Baroque piece, with that contrast of light and dark good and evil that the movement usually explored. The end result of Ankur's work is quite impressive, check it out. Ankur is a award winning Illustrator, Creative Retoucher & Photographer. He has been into Advertising industry for the last 10 years and have loved each moment of it. For more information and to see his full profile check out https://www.behance.net/ankilien I was commissioned by Adobe to re-create Rembrandt’s lost masterpiece “Storm on the Sea of Galilee” which was stolen in 1990 from the Gardner Museum in Boston, Massachusetts. I was tasked to make it look as close to the original as possible, entirely out of Adobe Stock photography. It was extremely challenging and one of my most difficult projects.

We have to make a mock-up of the mountains as the property for the photo shoot. We make our own out of Styrofoam and shape it to resemble a cluster of mountains, valleys and rivers as you can see. When the mock-up was ready, we go to the photography process. First, We take photos of the mock-up, then just take a picture of shoes that have been customized on the lighting and angles in order to later be fitted when entering Digital Imaging process. When entering the Digital Imaging process, we add small elements to make it increasingly real. Simultaneously, in this process we do retouching and color correction in all its parts in order to make it look more attractive in terms of look and tone. All The process takes quite a long time, but we were very happy when seeing the end result. Details Process
Ultima is a body of work that is deeply rooted in environmentalism, showing my concern for the future by depicting the ways in which mankind’s creations have an impact on the planet. Primarily it is about the modern conflict between the manmade world and the natural world, and between modern and primitive cultures. For more from Nick Pedersen visit nick-pedersen.com. I portray this as an epic struggle and in my work these forces clash in theatrical, post-apocalyptic battlegrounds. My goal with this project is to create striking juxtapositions between the ruins of modern civilization and a futuristic ecological utopia. The narrative progression shows a rediscovery of these remnants belonging to the conceivably forgotten past.

This amazing digital illustration was done by the Polish designer Pawel Kozakowski, he used this image to enter the Fotolia TEN Content under the theme Travel. Here he will show us step by step how it was done, and give us some insights of what was done so check it out!For more from Pawel Kozakowski visit behance.net/pawelkozakowskiTravel Details Case StudyI generally used Photoshop CS6 and it took about 15 hours of work. I started work on the sketch of all scene (without details). Next I put on canvas the beach photo, sky, businessman and birds photos. Then I started to paint 'light lines' (without details- only a sketch). When i found general composition I started adding more elements and details. I started paint map and hand too. The next step was to set the color correction of individual elements and adding details. Finally I set general colour (I use photo filters (warming), levels and hue saturation fiter). The last step was to sharpen the entire image (I use High Pass with Soft light blending mode). For more from Pawel Kozakowski visit behance.net/pawelkozakowski
Nature In-Vader is another amazing digital illustration by Adam Spizak and on this post he will share with us step by step of how this nature inspired Star Wars image was done. Enjoy this awesome case study! For more from Adam Spizak visit behance.net/spizak and follow him on twitter twitter.com/adamspizak Some time ago the idea I had an idea to create nature inspired image that would have both the nature eco/environmentemental theme. The same time i was thinking it would be fun to make a cross into Star Wars on one had - invaders tribute on the other side. The project was open for few months (busy times lately so it was worked on nights), most of the elements was done in Maxon Cinema 4D and Pixologic ZBrush, other elements like Death Star took few days being hand-drawn. It all started with this basic concept. Case Study Base of the rendering was done - colours established , mixed two sets of materials for the mask - glossy black and glossy white to break the black colours a bit, some of the bg shapes were put in - done in PS. Frontal textures were added in to get darker worn off feel, all the mask GI lights were boosted, mask cracks added as well, invader screen was added inside the right eye. A lot more detail was added - plastic bags, the death star was hand-drawn and added in as a smoke shape from the light sabre cut, phone and modem are 80' reference. Florals were added with the bird - to balance out the right side and add the nature element, iPhone screes were fixed, lots of smaller elements - from the storm trooper to the neon sign More tweaking - adding details (small debris and dust) water and fishes were added as 2nd nature element and visual balance out for the right hand side. final polishing, colour corrections and depth of field. Final Version Here we have the final version of Nature In-Vader - the idea behind the image was to create image both inspired by StarWars - but the same time to play with the name and based it on the idea of nature being overrun by rubbish - with a dip of the 80 subculture.
