Joel Savage 3D modeler and texture artist based in London, UK. We are sharing his work for Netflix's I am Mother, a science fiction thriller film directed by Grant Sputore. Let's take a look at this robot that took more than 6 months to build and it's not CG'ed since someone can be placed inside the suit. The designs shown here are the 3D model of the physical costume they have later built for the movie.
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.
3D artist Philip Lück shared a very creative project on his Behance, re-imagining our daily lives with a twisted flair. Using Maxon Cinema 4D, Philip does an incredible job at merging our realities into abstract and playful masterpieces. Some of them aren't too obvious at first glance but this is what it is about too. You gotta take the time to think about your reality and how the artist pushed it into a new reality.
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 :)
G R A Z A ™ has shared a cool animation & 3D project via his Behance.

Coming together into a unique Soccer T-shirt, the result is quite amazing.

It's pure magic, it's always inspiring to see his work. It's definitely something that pushes us all to create and explore different mediums (3D for me!). For this collection, I would suggest you view the entire collection on his Behance.
I think we feature each year the work of BÜRO UFHO for 36 Days of Type. They are a duo of brand specialists located in the beautiful city of Singapore. Each year, they would inspire us with a beautiful set of type that we couldn't resist featuring on ABDZ. This year, they are going ahead with a lighter set of colours but definitely keeping within trendier tones that we have seen getting popularity.
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.
If you are a long time reader of the blog you might recognize the name of this designer, Marcos Torres, a very active contributor in the past, shared an incredible 3D project on his Behance profile. I was quite surprise to see that the work was from him because I knew him as a great illustrator, but his style was more on the vector side in addition to graffitti. It was definitely awesome to see his 3D work, especially with all those light effects and classic mood from sci-fi movies.
Space: The final frontier. The place that inspires infinite dreams and visions for artists to come up with stunning artworks. Wei Weihua, a Chinese designer, comes up with fantastic 3d sci-fi artworks and illustration, in a series called "Planet Green Valley". Here you can see a handful of this fantastic pieces. These are truly awesome and remind me a lot of the Gravity movie. For more of these, please visit his portfolio at ArtStation. I hope you enjoy these! Cheers. ;)
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!

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.
