"Silhouettes Of Life" Case Study

Silhouettes of Life is a piece by one of my favorite digital artists Wojciech Pijecki from Poland. This piece was created for the SlashTHREE XVII Exhibition: Quote Unquote" and the result is simply amazing. Check out step by step how this image was done and enjoy the process. For more from Wojciech Pijecki visit synectic.pl About Exhibition The exhibition theme was "Quote Unquote". The idea of this theme was to interpret a famous quotes in an illustrative manner. Profound quotes can often provoke deep reactions, but lets not forget "a picture speaks a thousand words". We are hoping that interpreting the quotes as images & music, we will be able to convey the initial meanings of these quotes but with other nuances that you may not have been aware of. Silhouettes Of Life "Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." William Shakespeare Details Case Study Photo approach faces struggle We had two quick photo sessions for this concept. First didn't work out quite well, as the concept was still in a developement stage. It kinda changed few times, so I didn't use any of the photos we shot that day, but I still would to thank Patryk Piechocki for shooting this. Second approach was the right one. It was pretty rushy, without enough equipment and time but the face shapes were caught pretty well to integrate them with the illustration. Also thanks to Anna Kwa?niewska and Tomasz Pijecki for participating in this.

Insane Clown Case Study

The Insane Clown Posse is Detroit's own hometown harlequins. Photographer Paul Mobley teamed up with digital artist Mike Campau to put up an amazing series of photo manipulations and here you will see one of them broke down step by step. After some early brainstorming and pre-production meetings with Paul, we chose our strongest concepts to execute on set. We were on a tight schedule and wanted to capture as many shots as possible, so we decided to shoot ICP on green screen at their own studio. Then we went on to Greene's Hamburgers in Farmington Hills to shoot the diner image. Next, Paul spent a couple days shooting downtown, precariously positioning himself on the edges of rooftops and coming back down to ground level for shots of dramatic Detroit architecture. And finally, the fun part — putting the pieces together. I created the balloons, Bomb Pops, and color block background entirely CGi, then composited the rest using everything Paul shot in the city. He dropped by the studio to work with me on some finishing touches and overall style decisions, and after a ton of strips, a few sliders, and a little bit of face paint remover we were done clowning around. It was a great experience. Now if we could only figure out why people kept calling me a Juggalo... Case Study

Digital Illustration Case Study by Wojciech

This case study was personally done upon a request I made to Wojciech. The final result of this digital illustration called "Flower Power" is totally amazing that I wanted to see the process and also share with our viewers, and also show some shameless plagiarism that happened to this image. This case study was created by the Polish graphic designer and digital illustrator Wojciech Magierski aka M4gik. We have an awesome interview with Wojciech. Case Study Final Image Plagiarism Unfortunately when we lay our work online there is always a chance of someone trying to take an advantage of it by copying some work for their own use without any permission. Wojciech was very upset that the work he took weeks to get done was taken by someone who just added some typo and claimed it to be his. What is Plagiarism? Many people think of plagiarism as copying another's work, or borrowing someone else's original ideas. But terms like "copying" and "borrowing" can disguise the seriousness of the offense: According to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, to "plagiarize" means to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own to use (another's production) without crediting the source to commit literary theft to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source. In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward.

Interview with Photo Illustrator Wojciech Magierski

This interview is totally awesome with the Polish graphic designer and digital illustrator Wojciech Magiersky aka M4gik. He give us all access to his work and tell us some secrets, check it out! Lets start up with the usual, tell us about yourself? My name is Wojciech Magierski aka m4gik. I am a graphic designer from Poland. I live in Cracow most beautiful polish city :) My passion is creating and designing graphic. Actually it's my job and I love it. I'm especially focused on photo manipulation and illustration. When did you start this passion for design and graphics, and what did you do to take it further and turn it in to your profession? I have always loved painting and drawing. My uncle is a well-known Polish sculptor, and my mother makes professional artistic jewelery, so I think I have inherited my art passion after them. When I got my first computer I used it first only for playing games. A couple years later I started creating some graphics in the Photoshop. I realized that I could replaced painting on the paper by painting in the Photoshop. It was my great hobby. After I had finished the high school, I decided to continue that and start studies combining my computers skills and my passion for art. It was a wonderful idea, because I realized that it was just what I would like to do as my proper job. Currently, I try to develop and improve my skills and I try to get better all the time. At the moment, I work for an creative agency based in Krakow and I'm happy that I do what I love. Lately I've been seeing a lot of great digital illustrator and designers from Poland. What kind a support the country gives to people who want to follow this path of design? You are right. There are a lot of talented digital artists on a international level in Poland, but we have few schools where you can learn graphic design skills. It is still new subject for our colleges. They don't follow market needs. I hope it will be changed soon. I know that education is very important, but in my opinion, it is one of many factors to be successful. I know many graphics designers, who didn't graduated any collages but achieve their goals successfully. From my point of view, if you discover your passion, talent and determination in doing that, you will be one of the best :) Lets talk a bit about your work, looking at your work is obviously that you have unbelievable skills and a very creative mind, how do you define your style? Thanks for nice words. I very appreciate your opinion. I have a little bit problem with defining my style. I'm still on researching a way if you know what I mean. I would like to try many things, experience them, surprise others by doing something new and fresh. Where do you find inspiration to create such awesome pieces? I think that everything that surrounding you, may be your inspiration. Sometimes just one detail can make that you feel yourself creative and inspired. If you are sensitive man, you can see deeply then others. I have also my favorite time to create new projects - it is time just before sleeping. Besides, I very like review abduzeedo website and the famous Daily Inspirations to meet something interesting for me. Tell us about your process of creating, how do you go from nothing to a very complex final image? In the beginning, is an idea. But it is very common that during creating process most things are changed so finally effect is quite different that initial one. It attaches great importance to composition. From my point of view, it is really significant element in designing. When every element suits to others - adding some next, is quite easy. After that I looked for proper light and colours to make my project dynamic and interesting. I noticed you do a lot of collab work, how important you think that is for your work and what do you learn from these experiences? If you do collab work, you can learn a lot. And it is great fun ! There were nice experiences for me. I do it with pleasure. In case of Mike Campau, I liked his CG COVER GIRL. I suggest him co-operation in doing something together. He agreed and we did great project, which was awarded in one of the graphic portals. Collab work with Mike Campau Thank you so much for this interview, was a pleasure having you here at abduzeedo and I'll leave the last words up to you. Paulo, I very appreciate your interview. I wish you all the best in private and professional life. Thank you very much.
