Let's take a look at this cool series of digital art and set designs named: Unsmart Devices. Designed by the mighty folks from FOREAL Studio, it's a great study of creative explorations of what could be our everyday things if they were "unsmart". Having our share of several viral fail videos, let's just say that some of the concepts in this series revealed another aspect of us humans experimenting with objects that aren't necessarily right for its purpose. I let you be the judge!
Adobe announced updates to Dimension, including new features and improvements that will enable users to create incredible photorealistic 3D scenes with increased power and effici
We have received the amazing work by Design Lad not to confused with Design Lead! He is a London-based designer and illustrator that focuses his work in bold, playful and colourful 3D illustrations. I am surprised that we have never featured his work before on ABDZ. Represented by our friends from Jelly London, make sure to follow his work on Instagram
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.
Construed MIMIC III is the 3rd installment of the series of studies of Picasso's artwork and translation to 3D form using Maxon Cinema 4D and Otoy Octane. The project was created by Omar. Aqil and it's been a great experience for him as he mentioned on his Behance post. "I have learned a lot from his work" - he adds. Omar this time picked six art pieces from Picasso's work and try to recreate them in a different way. "I am trying to explore more complexity and abstraction of the shapes he used" - adds Omar.
Ah the beautiful city of Amsterdam, I had the chance for a quick visit back in late March. Following this visit, I am having a smile thinking of today's announcement with Adobe Stock + Adobe Dimension CC and the Rijksmuseum. The National Museum dedicated to arts and history based in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Our pals from Adobe has shared that the lifestyle and watch brand Fossil's design team revamped their approach with design tool Adobe Dimension CC.

Happy Friday everyone! We would like to share the work of Danny Ivan who is a freelance 3D Imagery maker / Art Director for motion based in Porto, Portugal. His illustration series is entitled: Interference of Light 2.0, a beautiful set of creative experimentations using Maxon Cinema 4D and of course Photoshop. As I quote here from Danny: "The big goal here is to transmit a certain of serenity with these abstract images on a technology electric world."
Let's take a look at this cool 3D illustration series entitled: Love Letters to Another Girl, designed by Liron Ashkenazi Eldar and Gal Eldar. Both located in New York, it's such a cool series with vibrant colour palette accomplished with Adobe Photoshop and Maxon Cinema 4D. Also I just gotta love the reason why this series was commissioned for, it must have been such a special woman.
It looks like we have never featured the work of G R A Z A ™ before on ABDZ. Well, his "Human Color Sets" will be the perfect first opportunity which is a set of 3D & CGI Illustrations. First of all, you just gotta love the "set" aspect of this series where you can only imagine one perspective with yet so much details from the fog, neons and even the reflection effect from the water on the sidewalk. G R A Z A ™ is a Digital Art Studio based in Lima - Perú.
Happy Friday guys! Already the end of the week and hope your week went pretty well. We are cooking with the idea for keeping Fridays entirely for you guys, we would pick projects that we have received from our community through Facebook or Instagram and feature them on ABDZ. Let's start it off with the work of Wes L Cockx who is a 3D illustrator based in Brussels, Belgium.
There are some projects that are simply hard to describe how awesome they are. The Classic. Typefaces by Particle (Gao Yang) is one of those memorable 3D and typography posts. It is simply an alphabet but it's created by using classic examples of industrial design, quite a few from Braun. The result is quite awesome, from calculator to toothbrush you will find all sorts of familiar objects there. I love the simplicity and how clean it feels. Check out after the break.
It never ceases to amaze me the level of quality that 3D artworks have gotten. Dan N shared this incredible character design project that took him a few months to complete. It is titled "Hulkbuster" and it's the Iron Man Armor: Mark XLIV. It's hard to imagine that we all have access to tools to achieve this level of work and even more mind-blowing to think that you can simply just purchase the model to render it on your machine.

Carlos Neda shared a beautiful post on his Behance profile featuring some super cool illustratins. They were created in Autodesk Maya, Luxology Modo, Pixologic Zbrush and Marvelous Designer. All of them have this super eerie feel with colorful light effects. The project is shared Nothing Matters and as the name suggest, it does look like nothing matters for me after seeing that and realizing that I lack at a lot of skills :)
Let's share the vibrant 3D work of digital artist Kirill Maksimchuk. Based in Kaliningrad, Russian Federation, we are taking a look at his latest piece entitled: NEOMANCER. It's a cool concept and experimentation about an overdose of exposure from a character's emotions which is a female in this case. You can quite definitely the different approaches that Kirill took. It's impressive work! You should definitely check out his Behance for more of his 3D projects.
It's almost the end of 2017, many of us including myself will be working at putting together our favourite and best work of the year to showcase. It's a cool practice since you are closing and re-arranging your files before the holidays. Also doing some cleaning for the upcoming new year and start fresh. We are taking a look at this year's collection by ILOVEDUST on their favourite 3D type projects from commercial, promotions and pitch-based.
