Pavel Zertsikel shared some awesome digital design projects on his Behance profile. I personally like the 3D typography treatment he created, especially with the usage of transparency. Unfortunately there’s no mention of the tools used, which made me wonder how he achieve such nice effects. For more information about Pavel check out his website at http://zerna.design/
I love mixing photography and Photoshop to create incredible light effects. If you follow the blog since the beginning you probably already know that. I love that eerie feeling you can create by imagining a supernatural reality and there are many digital artists pushing the limit. The cool thing is that they go beyond just Photoshop and really take advantage of 3D to translate ideas into convincing imagery. If you don't follow Beeple you should and you will know what I am talking about.
As currently living in Europe, it totally brings some sense of quirkiness when you start envisioning 'cinematic scenes' from popular cult movies like 1982's Blade Runner movie for example. It's hard not good and it's at the same time a fun photo challenge. This is the feeling I get when I am looking at the 'Lisbon' series by Max Bedulenko. Seriously there is some resemblance shown in both worlds so that's why I added the '2049' to the title. Hope you will dig it.
Luca Genovese shared an incredible digital art project titled Tech Styleframes - Exploration. He used Cinema 4D and JSplacement to create a series of abstract images that look like computer motherboards and electronics. The outcome is simply beautiful, full of light effects and different perspectives. Honestly, I would love to have some of those as desktop and mobile wallpapers.
Corey Brickley is an illustrator that has been recently caught my attention for a feature on ABDZ. His work is quite intriguing and it's the kind of art that makes you second guess about what was the initial concept or the idea behind its creation. It definitely brings a notion of imagination that we were so used to when we were kids. Ever since we are kicking off the new year, this might be the right way to march into this new decade with an optimistic flair.
We have featured the work of Aaron before on ABDZ, I truly love his work especially this latest series titled: 'V A P O R D R E A M S • '97'. If you are a kid from the 80s (like me), you will probably be familiar with some of these items shown and/or scenes in this series are pure nostalgia. I mean just take a look at the artwork with the 'Goldeneye' game, how many hours have I spent playing this game. This is too pure. Hopefully, you will find some sentimentality as well.
ZUSCROFA _ shared a cool project on his Behance, I remember when I was a kid and I would create this monster kind of gruesome-looking but he was nice and he was my bodyguard from my nightmares. Have you ever did something similar or I am just being weird! ZUSCROFA _ is an art director and motion designer based in Mexico City, Mexico and we are sharing his latest project: PROTECTORS. A series about what is his vision of this PROTECTOR, I just loved his concepts and experiments.
Just to keep the momentum with Tesla's Cybertruck, I decided to share a series of futuristic car designs by Zenildo Almeida simply titled: Sci-Fi Vehicles. Hint* None of the cars have 'tires', they are mostly 'hovering' above the ground. I just love how the background is set into a post-apocalytic world in the desert. There is definitely a Mad Max vibe in the atmosphere.
I wouldn't start imagining what it feels like to be in a 'coma', a deep state of prolonged unconsciousness is a scary feeling. I never met anyone who lived this kind of experience before but artist Abdulrahman Alhusainey has created an incredible series through art simply titled: 'Coma'. I really love the fact his visual approach is inspired by a journey, be ready to scroll! Make sure to scroll all the way till the end.

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!
Climate Change. A concerning subject that has been making buzz for the right reasons, we have come to the point where we can't just ignore anymore. Did you get the news to what happened to Venise for example (Link by voanewscom). The future of our planet is in great danger. To help spread the message, I decided to share the work from Nick Pederson.
I am starting to be quite fascinated Cinema 4D, maybe because I am getting too cluttered with interface & product design tools. But there is imaginative freedom to create something in another dimension. 3D artist named Anna Caban proves it right that you can clearly justify your creative needs through personal explorations. We are featuring her personal project titled: 'Flower Pool', a series of experiments she made using Cinema 4D and Octane. Hope you will enjoy!
Let's take a look at the work from Ladislas Chachignot who is an illustrator, digital painter, and creator of the Citizens of the Jungle Illustration Series. What is it? Well, it's a series of portraits illustrating our lost connection towards nowadays strong resistance of technology and our initial primitive "wilderness". First of all, I truly love the variety of colors used throughout this series and utterly more knowing its signification.
It's not my first time seeing this but the use of 'illustration' in product design is very important nowadays. Most of us designers are eager to craft the simplest and most intuitive user experience. Meanwhile, we do sometimes neglect the use of illustrations to communicate the features with much more tenacity. This is why we are sharing the work of Aldiyar Aidash who is a product designer taking a stab at illustrations, really great stuff! It's definitely will be inspiring some of us to take the right 'virage'.
Continuing the tribute for the cult movie Blade Runner and being now living in November 2019. I decided to feature another artist but this is a conceptual artist from Singapore. We are taking another route for this article, let's get out of the city with his 'Procedural Landscape' series that he shared on Behance. In this series, you will be taken in the desert, close to the ocean and everywhere.
I haven't worked with Photoshop in quite a long time, however, I feel that it's, perhaps time to get back to it. The reason I say this is because when I saw the digital art that JT DiMartile created for the Emission Series I got the urge to open Photoshop and try to recreate those shapes and light effects.
We are featuring the illustrations from Denise aka surudenise, they are filled with pastel colours, Japan, cats and alleyways. What else do you want? These are packed with beautiful and vibrant colors! I especially like her two illustrations referring to Kyoto Cats Day/Night, almost have that Anime feels. You should definitely give her a follow on Instagram where she incorporates the same feels in terms of color palette.
Jesus Amador is a product designer working with UI and UX design but he is also an incredible digital artists as you can see on this beautiful project he shared on his Behance profile. The illustrations and digital art have a super stylish look with a sort of sepia tone and a very surrealist feel. I am a fan of anything that combines abstract ideas with the noir look, which it seems that J Amador achieved amazingly well.
Juhani Jokinen is an Associate Lead Concept Artist for Ubisoft. He is based in Helsink, Finland. Juhani is a concept designer, art director, and illustrator. He specializes in producing conceptual ideas and high-end artwork for clients within the entertainment industry.
