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."

The fine folks from Mondlicht Studios have shared their CGI recreation of the iconic Lancia Stratos HF Zero. For those who are not familiar with the Lancia Stratos, well it's a sports car and rally car made by Italian car manufacturer Lancia. The rally portion of the car won the World Rally Championship in 1974, 1975 and 1976. What is the most striking aspect of the car is its design.
Olivier Pautot is a 3D designer based in Besançon, France with an incredible portfolio of 3D work, especially, in my opinion, the fun and whimsical character design ones. The work has so much personality that is hard to translate how I feel every time I see one of his projects. That’s the main reason I would love to share here with you. By the way, I was surprised I have not posted about Olivier yet.
Daniel Lepik shared some incredible graphic design 3D compositions he explored mixing light and gaussian blur effects. He mentioned that the work was Inspired by early summer mornings… Dawn explores smooth gradients through refractive surfaces and light. “Looking at the series in total silence makes you hear the soft sounds of sea and sand particles.” - adds Daniel. Everything about these pieces are intriguing and inspiring. The tools used for such beautiful renderings was Maxon Cinema 4D with Octane render.
Ben Fearnley shared one of those projects that I immediately have to post about it on Abduzeedo. That’s because it’s a mix of 3D Typography and lettering. For this one Ben created this beautiful composition out of shoe laces. With the say “Kiss my Kicks” the lettering alone is top notch, then you add an impeccable 3D rendering and the result is really inspiring.
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.

You can tell he has worked several concepts in mind and by using different ideas which is a great mindset.

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 :)

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!
