Fady Youssef is an Egyptian art director based in Dubai. He created this amazing series of character design made out of waste, literally. With old electronic parts he put together some quite inspiring compositions with character full of personality. It definitely reminds me of Wall-e by Pixar. With scores of new smartphones and computers release every quarter, tons of electronic devices are thrown away – and they often wind up filling our landfills and polluting the environment.

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.
We are delighted to share a timely post today by Hungarian-based illustrator Dora Vincze showcasing some fun illustrations celebrating winter sports. Just in time for the Olympics in South Korea, these whimsical, animated character illustrations have us beaming from ear to ear.

The Warriors is one of my favorite films, if you have not watch it do yourself a favor and check it out. It's a classic movie from the 80s, simple plot of a gang trying to go back to their territory but in order to do so they have to cross NYC taking subway, running on the streets and of course fighting other gangs. The style of the movie, with the radio host updating people about the Warriors moves, outfits, mood, everything is inspiring and Diogo Torres translate that amazingly well into a beautiful illustration piece.

One of the games I have been playing a lot lately is the new Batman game, the Arkham Knight. Batman is my favorite character and the main reason it's because he's a regular guy, he doesn't have special powers, just brains and of course money. So for this post I had to share the beautiful character design that Riyahd Cassiem shared on his Behance page. For more information about Riyahd check out his page at http://riyahdart.blogspot.com/
Character design is a field that I don't know much about and definitely lack talent but that doesn't mean that I don't like it. On the contrary, I love seeing the work that talented designers and artists put together. From Pixar movies to simple illustrations, what really catches my attention is the expression that these talented people are able to add to their characters, it's almost as if they were alive. For this post we share a really cool project by Oscar Ramos, an illustrator and character designer from Santiago, Chile.
It's always great to see designers rockin' some super badasses characters. Imagination has no boundaries and we get to see infinite designs, thankfully! Today we're checking the characters imagined by German designer Joern Zimmermann. He's been doing some super awesome, slick pieces, from mecha warriors and battle suits to aliens. These are pretty amazing, but are only a handful! For more of his artworks, please visit his portfolio at ArtStation. He'll most definitely enjoy your attention!
Vivien Bertin, an illustrator from Paris, France shared some beautiful character design work on his Behance page. If there's an area that I really admire yet completely lack skill is character design however I love seeing the process from conception, sketches to the final outcome.
Advertising is all about communication but to achieve that much work is required from a copious array of fields, from basic communication to design, illustration to 3D, and many others. The photo manipulation is the element that always attracted me, especially in terms of giving life to objects and characters that are not real. That's the case of the work that Estudio Icone created for CCCA Kids to help Brazilians learn english.
2015 is here, and we are really thrilled to see the things to come this year.
