Reader Tutorial: The Voyager Artwork by Moe Pike Soe

The Voyager artwork was created as a Ten Dollar Fonts showcase for a brilliant font designed by Maarten Van’t Wout. I used Cinema 4D and Photoshop to create the atmospheric photo manipulation. The technique is to use different blend modes and adjustment layers as combo to create dynamic lighting for each elements in the composition.

Street Fighter 2 Motion Sculptures

Last weekend I was reading my RSS and stumbled on this incredible motion design work inspired by one of my favorite video-games of all time, Street Fighter 2. Apparently the idea of the author with this video was to explore his Cinema 4D skills, however in my opinion he came up with a very original work of art :) I did it in order to teach myself Cinema 4D and Vray in my spare time, the renders aren't perfect but the best I could get out of my machine.

PES 2013 Photoshop and Cinema 4D Case Study

We are accustomed to seeing the final result of a design and then judging whether it's good or bad. Most of the time we forget to think about the back and forth of ideas and countless iterations from the brief to the final product. That is what differentiates design from art and that is what we here at Abduzeedo always try to illustrate in our posts. Enter this amazing case study from Diego L. Rodríguez. Graphic created for the promotion event in Madrid of Konami's PES 2013 videogame.

Since the very first time I saw the trailer of Tron Legacy I decided that I would have to try to do something inspired on that, all those light effects were exactly what I always love to do in Photoshop. Then I saw the James White design inspired by Tron and I was damn it, James nailed it.

Wash Your Hands Case Study by Jõao Marques

João Marques is a digital artist and graphic designer from Coimbra, Portugal and he contacted us willing to share a case study of one of his designs, the Wash Your Hands. It's a beautiful image in which João mixes a 3D text done in Cinema 4D with stock photos in Photoshop. We have published tutorials using similar techniques as the one João used, however one thing that really caught our attention was what drove him to do that, it was a project for an English Class.

Introducing Digital Artist Kevotu

It's a common mistake integrating 3D modelings into Photoshop by not embedding it well into the background. The choose of right colors also is indispensable otherwise the artwork looks too fake. If my research was done properly I found another very talented young artist at the age of 16. It feels like he's chief blaster who blows up tons of different colors landing them just perfect.

Beautiful Xmas Wallpaper in Cinema 4D and Photoshop

Last night I was watching TV and decided to create an image for a Christmas tutorial. I was willing to work a little bit more with Cinema 4D, and as I have seen some Christmas designs with candy canes, I decided to try and design my own candy cane typeface. I also used Photoshop to create the background and the whole composition. So in this tutorial I will show you how to create a 3D text in Cinema 4D, then in Photoshop we will import the .3DS file and play with it using the Photoshop 3D capabilities.

In this tutorial I will show you how to create a scene inspired by those gangster movies and of course the great depthCORE chapter NOIR.

Incredibly Realistic Water Text in Cinema 4D and Photoshop

Creepy Ghost in Photoshop and Cinema 4D

A few weeks ago, I created an image for the Halloween Wallpaper of the Week. It was an image of a ghost flying around, and that ghost I did when I was playing with Maxon Cinema 4D, a 3D app from Maxon, very cool and kind of easy to learn. Of course I had a help from where I was doing their Cinema 4D course.
