Winter Sport Character Design by Dora Vincze

We are delighted to share a timely post today by Hungarian-based illustrator Dora Vincze showcasing some fun illustrations celebrating winter sports. Just in time for the Olympics in South Korea, these whimsical, animated character illustrations have us beaming from ear to ear. The Winter Olympics began in 1924 in Chamonix, France as a major international affair and continued to take place every four years. Having evolved since their inception, sports and disciplines have been added and subtracted over time. The sports Vincze features here such as Alpine skiing and snowboarding have earned a permanent spot on the Olympic programme. For this work Vincze has employed Photoshop and After Effects to achieve the cheery end result. We don't have much further detail to wax poetic on this talented young illustrator but you can check her Instagram for more discovery and inspiration.

Incredible Illustration for Marvel Black Panther by Billelis ... 

Billelis ... shared another amazing post on his Behance profile. This time it's an digital art and illustration work he has done for the upcoming Marvel movie, Black Panther. As expected, it's an incredibly detailed artwork with intricate forms and shapes. It's hard to describe his work, it looks like a mandala, or sometimes the Iron Throne from the Game of Thrones. It doesn't matter the way you try to explain, it is something that you have to see it. Below I added a few images. Had the pleasure of working with the very talented BossLogic on this artist initiated key visual for Marvel and Marvel Studio's upcoming film - Black Panther.

We love the work of Brian Miller on ABDZ. He is an illustrator based in Erie, Colorado, USA; living in a beautiful landscape as a background like Colorado. It must have been really inspiring!

Motion Design & Illustration: A Dream Within a Dream

Motion Design & Illustration: A Dream Within a Dream

I have recently watched Blade Runner 2049 and woah! It was such an incredible film to watch. Every single frame pays an homage to the original somehow and it's quite beautiful. Going into the same lines, we are taking a look at the collaboration work between designers 灰 昼 and 行行珂 Hunk Xing and their motion series: A Dream Within a Dream. I would say this is the perfect tribute to the Blade Runner World added with their own Neo-Noir approach. Give it a look! _This short film Dream in A Dream is in reality, an experimental film about dreams. It is like a symbol floating on the water, being tightly held in an infant’s arms or trapped in the palm of the Buddha; it bursts into a blaze, then projects into the building of a capsule apartment.

Visions of the Future Digital Art in Photoshop

Visions of the Future Digital Art in Photoshop

It's always inspiring to see visions of the future translated to digital art especially when 3D and digital art tools are widely available. In addition to that, there are lots of websites and resources to learn these tools. The outcome of this powerful combination is strikingly beautiful digital art like the ones shared by Wadim Kashin on a Behance post, not coincidentally called Future Visions. It seems that the illustrations were created entirely in Photoshop, which makes them even more impressive. It's also important to highlight the still present idea of that one day we will have flying cars. Now, enough of talk. Check out some incredible digital art after the break. Digital Art in Photoshop

Awesome Illustration for Movie Posters by Rafal Rola

Awesome Illustration for Movie Posters by Rafal Rola

Rafał Rola, a super prolific designer from Lublin, Poland shared an incredible post on Behance sharing some beautiful posters created in 2017. The posters are for movies like Blade Runner 2049, Justice League, Star Wars Last Jedi, Ghost in the Shell, War for the Plane of the Apes, Wonder Woman and many other super popular movies and TV shows in 2017. The highlight though, is the style. They all feel like oil and watercolor painted but it was all done digitally with Adobe Sketch, Illustrator and Photoshop. For me it's always awesome to see something that feels unique and fresh, moving a bit away from the minimalism or highly detailed vector illustration. I think it's a good way to bring a bit more variety to ABDZ in 2018.  Make sure to check out Rafal Rola's website for a full portfolio and some more awesomeness in illustration and design at http://www.rafalrola.pl/ Posters & Illustration

Forgotten Temple Illustration by Rui Gonçalves

Forgotten Temple Illustration by Rui Gonçalves

Let's take a look at this rather cool illustration by art director/graphic designer Rui Gonçalves. Based in Barcelona, Spain, Rui is a true passion when it comes to graphic design and also art direction. Judging by his Behance Profile, ideas and concepts seems to be his forté. Today we are a case study at the Forgotten Temple Illustration, a commission project ended up being a personal experimentation. My favourite part of this illustration is the layers of details from what's underneath the sea, the dinosaur fossil is quite a nice touch. This illustration also reminds me of his Everything is okay, until it's not. project that we have featured on ABDZ. What started as a commission ended in a personal project. I wanted to push my isometric illustration skills a bit more so i decided to turn this idea, which originally was designed for a client, into a personal project - "Forgotten Temple". Hope you guys like it! More Links Learn more about Rui Gonçalves at ruimgoncalves.com Follow Rui's work on Behance Previous Feature on ABDZ Illustration & Process   Quick Process

Chiclets, Never Gets Old! Campaign by Amro Thabit

Chiclets, the candy-coated gum brought to us by the Cadbury company, brings back such great memories and flavors of my youth so when I stumbled upon this latest work for Chiclet by Cairo based Amro Thabit I just had to share. Introduced in 1900, this iconic gum is still distributed in limited supply across the globe. We're hoping Amro's work puts the brand back on the map in a bigger way for today's youth to appreciate. Scoop more on the project and corresponding work below.  ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN CHICLETS, NEVER GETS OLD! chiclets has always had a place on every shelf; here, there & everywhere. the true definition of an all-time classic.. chiclets decided to embrace a young spirit sticking to its old soul. now targeting the younger generation, a more vibrant package design was born. by turning chiclets iconic half-circle into five different mouth-shaped designs. Inspired by the originality of the older packs, i took the existing undefined shape and transformed it into a mouth.To bring this further, i injected modern & personalized elements, giving the new packs a retro look; a look appreciated by teens. i gave each of the five flavors a personality, a distinct character, using differentiating colors & elements such as piercing, mustache, braces... The five packs are not only visually distinct; each one a character that is reflected by their look & speech. The one trait they all have in common is a sense of humor.            

Alternate Movie Poster Concepts by Karl Fitzgerald

Alternate Movie Poster Concepts by Karl Fitzgerald

Who doesn't love movie posters! It's generally rare to stumble across a movie poster that you would appreciate the overall design enough. They are usually too corny with flame radiant effects coming from everywhere and big bold fonts. You know what I mean, see this link. On the other hand, we are taking a look at the alternate movie poster concepts by Karl Fitzgerald. He is a freelance illustrator based in London, UK. Taking a closer of his work, you will find a beautiful mixture of indeed textures and I love the fact that you don't necessarily see the faces from the actors or actresses playing in the movie. It just keeps a cool mystery vibe, what do you think?
