We've seen a lot of comics illustrations lately, and one thing that really annoyed me is that we didn't have a post on Spidey... so I thought "what the heck" and just did it! And it's Friday, so I'm guessing you guys just wanna chill out and have some fun. So, I went looking for some pictures of our beloved friendly neighborhood Spider-man and found a bunch of Spectacular ones (no jokes included)! I just had to share these with you guys, because these artists really caught the felling... Spidey is one badass kid that likes to kick but. Sweet! I really hope you guys enjoy these. And don't forget to visit the artists' pages! Cheers. ;) Play this video while you check the illustrations! ;) Marcio Takara Manarama Adonihs diablo2003 diablo2003 Mike Mayhew Lines by Inkthinker, Colors by Silas Luxun Manarama Pencils by David Williams, Colors by Kelsey Shannon Pencils by Pedro Delgado, Colors by Edgar Delgado Matt Herms Javilaparra Adam Hughes Pencils by R.

Adrian Van Delzel is a graphic designer and illustrator from Barcelona, Spain. His work is most vector illustrations with an incredible amount of details and elements. Some characters are simply amazing, especially the Monster ones. Most things are based on vectors in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop is a faithful friend, but not the center of it all. I always try to find some sort of equilibrium, which counteract my "artistic imbalance" that is present on everything I do... For more information about Adrian's work please visit his website at http://www.adrianvandelzel.com/, you will not regret it. Videos LITTLE HOOLIN from Adrian Van Delzel on Vimeo.
I've probably said it before, but watercolor is definetely one of the greatest techniques of painting there is! It's truly incredible what a good illustration will do with it... so I thought it would be cool to find some watercolor illustrations of Super heroes and villains. And as usual, I started looking for some cool illustrations at DeviantART, and found a whole bunch of sweet, beautiful illustrations, and they're listed below! The colors give each illustration a particular feeling, a single mood for every and each one, and that's exactly what I found fantastic about it. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy these as much as I did... and please, don't forget to give some love to each artist by visiting their galleries!! There are much more great art at their galleries.

One thing I love about design is the variety of things one single designer does nowadays. Everyone is multi-task, and also does lots of cool stuff, like this one designer, Grzegorz Domaradzki. His work is pretty amazing. The variety of styles of his work just assures me of how good this guy is... there's no limitation! Everything is inspiration, how some might say. So, for more of his great work, you should all visit his portfolio at Behance. He'll really appreciate it! I hope you all enjoy it. Cheers! ;)

Benjamin Güdel is a very talented illustrator and comic artist based in Zurich. He has his roots in the underground comic world but he says he became an illustrator in order to earn a living. His dynamic and expressive drawings, which are mostly begun by hand and then finished digitally, can be seen in various Swiss publications such as Weltwoche, Soda and DU as well as gracing posters for the Berlin avant-garde theatre, the Schaubühne." http://www.hotelfox.dk/ "Benjamin Güdel is a freelance illustrator and comic artist based in Zurich, Switzerland. His bump and grind style is reminiscent of pulp fiction covers and cult film posters of the 1950s with a distinct contemporary, politically incorrect edge. Güdel's striking drawings are collected in Blood, Sweat and Tears, a rollicking romp through pop art portraits, pin-ups, pirates and more. Featuring commercial illustrations for clients including Berlin's renowned Schaubuhne Theater, Burton and innovative Swiss magazines "Du" and "soDA" as well as personal projects, this book is an entertaining whirlwind ride through Güdel's work." http://www.gestalten.com For more information Benjamin Güdel: http://www.guedel.biz/

Yesterday I was putting together the Daily Inspiration #343 and some images (sent by our reader enrico305) really got my attention. The images were from mr-ewokone.com and were just AWESOME! I liked them so much that I decided to get in touch with Mr Ewokone to ask further info about the site and also to say that we were interested in featuring their work here. So here is a small bio from the artist and a really cool selection from his work. EWOK ONE 5MH born in 1976 and currently resides and paints from his ultra lavish penthouse studio in Downtown Brooklyn, where he relocated to in 1996 (from upstate NY) to attend Pratt Institute, graduating 4 years later with a BFA in Traditional Animation. Today Ewok’s work is most recognized for its distinctly warped character style and colorful play on “fine art” that has been shamelessly mimicked by the commercial art world time and again over the last decade. His original works have been exhibited in galleries (and in the streets) around the U.S., Japan, Indonesia, Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico. These days he heavily incorporates collage element, gathered on his travels, which he uses in a symbolic manner in relation to his paintwork. I have to say that I just loved Ewok's work! His incredible colors combinations, lines, some exaggerated characters and the overall composition, everything just match, forming an awesome result! Based in all that I recommend you to visit Ewok's website and flickr to see much more cool stuff. And as for the selection, I'm sure you will also like it, so, enjoy!! :) Paper Canvas Letters Artworks at Flickr

In this case study we will show how Luis Inciarte a designer from Venezuela created a great illustration that features such characters as The Terminator, The Joker, Tony Montana, Gollum and Dark Vader. Check it out!! Univerciudad Issue #4 - Illustration: This was a commisioned illustration from a new magazine called "UNIVERCIUDAD". The topic was "Don't Die Without Watching... Movies That Have Touched Our Generation". They gave me some famous movie quotes and wanted an illustration based on that topic, they gave me a very general outline of what they wanted and this is what was produced. Inspired by 70's Grindhouse movie posters, black and white figures over a saturated and plain colored background. The characters chosen were The Terminator, The Joker, Tony Montana, Gollum and Darth Vader. I hadn't done any illustrations in about 3 years, so im very proud of this one.

Here are some great illustrations of this set featuring little colored squares... really stylish. Also, he's got some sweet sets in his portfolio, and you should really check them out!
