Following up with our latest futuristic feature, let's go with this automotive CGI design by colorsponge entitled: Honda Reventon. As part of a weekly challenge from the folks at Automotive CGI; colorsponge also known as Carlos Pecino is taking it over with this winning design. I think you might have recognized the frame of the Lamborghini Reventón alongside with an Akira-inspired colour palette and elements like the tires. It's quite lovely and a nice tribute!

Let's kick it off with 3D rendering from the mighty folks from RoomCR6 with their series entitled: Suprematism & Constructivism. Based on their fascination with Russian Art, they have been playing with Cinema4D and Arnold Render to bring the Suprematism Art movement from 1915 back to our modern time but by keeping its fundamental roots with circles, squares, lines, rectangles, and with a specific colour palette.

A few weeks ago, we’ve featured an architectural photo series by Clement Balavoine about his perspective of Tokyo. Now he is back with another project about what he is really passionate about - Fashion Design. It took me him 9 days to create a collection inspired by the work from Errolson Hugh and NikeLab. Even though, it’s only a concept but it’s such a great exercise to express your vision and as a Nike fan; these are really beautiful to look at.
Last month, we were all smashed by the trailer of the controversy and still in the making movie: Ghost in the Shell. I personally watched the trailer and loved it. I liked how they make an effort to keep it close as possible to the animated series. It’s also a great thing to have the Creator of GITS onboard as well. We are taking at the work from Furio Tedeschi and his 3D/digital art contribution to the project.
It’s always impressive that somehow you’ll look at a photograph and you’re not even sure if it’s real or not. I am especially talking about car photographs, we understand that is a tremendous amount of work to just finding the location, getting the equipment, getting the special car and crew to just organize everything together. What if there’s another route?
Hearing news from Adode MAX where they introduced (coming soon) the Project Felix. A product where you’ll be able to easily create 2D and 3D assets, that sounds like it could be amazing. While it’s coming soon, we rather appreciate what’s been done by artists in Autodesk 3DS MAX where I feel there is more control for your composites, lighting and etc.
