ZUSCROFA _ shared a cool project on his Behance, I remember when I was a kid and I would create this monster kind of gruesome-looking but he was nice and he was my bodyguard from my nightmares. Have you ever did something similar or I am just being weird! ZUSCROFA _ is an art director and motion designer based in Mexico City, Mexico and we are sharing his latest project: PROTECTORS. A series about what is his vision of this PROTECTOR, I just loved his concepts and experiments.
Luis de la Barrera-Montenegro is a visual artist, 3D, motion artist based in Madrid, Spain. He has been making an interesting 3D digital art series about our everyday tools as we all commonly know them about. But in his series, he actually replaced the elements or shall we call them components used instead of actually making 3D renders of the tool itself. The results are so clever and remarkable. Hope you will enjoy this collection!
Way before digging my work into UX/UI, I was (and still) a big fan of Typography mixed with 3D. By the different techniques and how you can express yourself through words/quotes and choose how you wanna express it. Today, I look up to those who still work into these fields and asking myself when I'll do some typography and getting my hands into 3D. Time will tell. For now, let's look at the stunning work of Zigor Samaniego.
I love mixing photography and Photoshop to create incredible light effects. If you follow the blog since the beginning you probably already know that. I love that eerie feeling you can create by imagining a supernatural reality and there are many digital artists pushing the limit. The cool thing is that they go beyond just Photoshop and really take advantage of 3D to translate ideas into convincing imagery. If you don't follow Beeple you should and you will know what I am talking about.
Starting of 2019 focusing on digital art. Trying to get back to our roots if you will. Not that we won't post about the other fields, but just because digital art is our passion and something we cannot do on our day to day job. So for this post, I would love to share a beautiful project that Adam Spizak shared on his Behance profile titled Man of Steel. ..and what happens to things that don't bend?
Let's take a look at the work from Ladislas Chachignot who is an illustrator, digital painter, and creator of the Citizens of the Jungle Illustration Series. What is it? Well, it's a series of portraits illustrating our lost connection towards nowadays strong resistance of technology and our initial primitive "wilderness". First of all, I truly love the variety of colors used throughout this series and utterly more knowing its signification.
I haven't worked with Photoshop in quite a long time, however, I feel that it's, perhaps time to get back to it. The reason I say this is because when I saw the digital art that JT DiMartile created for the Emission Series I got the urge to open Photoshop and try to recreate those shapes and light effects.
We are featuring the illustrations from Denise aka surudenise, they are filled with pastel colours, Japan, cats and alleyways. What else do you want? These are packed with beautiful and vibrant colors! I especially like her two illustrations referring to Kyoto Cats Day/Night, almost have that Anime feels. You should definitely give her a follow on Instagram where she incorporates the same feels in terms of color palette.
Jesus Amador is a product designer working with UI and UX design but he is also an incredible digital artists as you can see on this beautiful project he shared on his Behance profile. The illustrations and digital art have a super stylish look with a sort of sepia tone and a very surrealist feel. I am a fan of anything that combines abstract ideas with the noir look, which it seems that J Amador achieved amazingly well.
We would like to share the work from Danny Ivan whom which we have featured before on ABDZ. Danny is based in Porto, Portugal and his work is quite inspiring!

molistudio ™ is a studio based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, they have cooked up an illustration series about tennis. Simple as that, with the recent worldwide news we all heard of in the field of tennis, I thought it would be cool to have a little close-up to this sport and somehow appreciate all the little details. Obviously, the colours aren't maybe all represented on the actual field, but it's fashionable to share a different palette. What do you think?
With all the companies talking and merging about UI/UX design, web experiences are now rocking a certain standard in terms of what's "good practices" for your users.
