I am gonna start by saying that social media platforms can have its benefits and its disadvantages. I won't be the first to tell you that I have experience both and it's not always a fairytale.
Rutger Paulusse has been teasing with his new colorful & vibrant series titled: Material World. I just love the fact that Rutger mentioned that these are from unused R&D experiments that happen all the time. Usually, we do forget about it but I just dig how Rutger embraces them and goes beyond deeper. Speaking of colors, I mean take a look at these gradients! It's lovely and it is embracing the exploration meanwhile you are trying to achieve a result needed for the project. I think we have all have lived(at least once) this situation where you start doing something from your mind meanwhile everything just keeps following with you.
I love exploring these unused visuals more in depth and that is how this series came about. In these explorations I challenged myself to dig deeper into the translucent characteristics of materials and play around with gradients & light to get the most out fo these textures.
