Amazing Illustrations of The Warriors Characters

The Warriors is one of my favorite films, if you have not watch it do yourself a favor and check it out. It's a classic movie from the 80s, simple plot of a gang trying to go back to their territory but in order to do so they have to cross NYC taking subway, running on the streets and of course fighting other gangs. The style of the movie, with the radio host updating people about the Warriors moves, outfits, mood, everything is inspiring and Diogo Torres translate that amazingly well into a beautiful illustration piece. The project title The Warriors Characters is an illustration as the titles says of the most iconic characters in the movie. Check it out. A turf battle between New York City street gangs that rages from Coney Island to the Bronx. The Warriors are mistakenly fingered for the killing of a gang leader. Soon they have every gang in the city out to get revenge and they must make their way across the city to their own turf.  Illustration and character design Diogo Torres is a Brazilian illustrator and graphic designer based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Fantastic Doodles by Visothkakvei

Fantastic Doodles by Visothkakvei

An unaware bystander might read the title an ask what's the big deal of doodles. Well, when the artist behind a doodle is a very talented person, then you take doodling to a new level. It becomes doodle art, and this is amazing. I'm amazed by the level of precision @Visothkakvei has... you may visit his Instagram to see some of the videos he publishes, and I tell you, this guy draws as if he was a printer, most time without even a sketch underneath.

Especially the lighting, it's just gradients but it does have a sense of depth across. This can definitely go into abstract art, what do you guys think?

A talented storyteller with a knack for character creation he enjoys conveying humor, intrigue and sometimes a little sadness too. His mediums of choice tend to be watercolor, acrylic inks and pastels with final editing in Photoshop. As a new mom myself who struggles with getting her 1 year old to eat carrots I was immediately drawn to Darren's charming story about a young girl who, you guessed it, won't eat carrots!

Beautiful Graphic Design Project Inspired by The Little Prince

Graphic Design: Paper Craft Project Inspired by The Little Prince

Le Petit Prince is a graphic design project created and shared by Rafa Miqueleto. It was a commissioned work done inspired by The Little Prince movie. One of the coolest things about this project is the tools and materials used. It's a paper craft full of style. The details and the dimensionality added by layers of papers and folds is just beautiful. In addition to that, and the most amazing in my opinion, is the irregularities of the cuts. I have tried to do this type of work in Illustration and Photoshop, however it always end up looking to uniform or computer generated. Nothing can beat the real deal, it's almost a homage to graphic design projects from a different era, an era without computers. Rafa Miqueleto is a graphic designer and illustrator from Sao Paulo, Brazil. He has a super strong portfolio with more amazing projects like this one. I highly recommend you to check it out at http://cargocollective.com/miqueleto Graphic design and paper craft Making Of
