I wanted to change the pace a little and share the incredible work by Deane McGahan, a sculptor based in Seattle, WA, USA. Her incentive foundation is coming right from that region where natural beauty lies everywhere. The simple color strikes me clear beauty and almost feel like the piece of Fortress of Solitude. It's impressive and wonders what would be the process behind. Hope you will enjoy them as well.
Gotta love when you find a unbelievably talented artist you didn't know before! I was struck by the work of sculpture artist Beth Cavener. She not only comes up with the perfect image of animals, but her pieces emote so much beauty and a sense of urgency, it's amazing. Her pieces are filled with beautiful details that will make you awestruck by it. These are a handful of her work... for more of it, please visit her Instagram! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. ;)
Salavat Fidai is an amazing artist who hand carves miniature sculptures from the tip of the pencils. The amount of detail he can put into these miniature sculptures is absolutely amazing. Check it out! For more from Salavat Fidai follow him on instagram @salavat.fidai and check out his website salavatfidai.com.
We often get to see some pretty astounding sculptures here at Abduzeedo, usually of people and super-heroes, but it's quite rare to find super amazing sculptures of dinosaurs! Here you can see some wicked sculptures and dioramas, all pretty impressive and detailed. Most of them were collaborative artworks, and Martin Garratt has made his mark on most of these. For more of these, please click each picture! I hope you enjoy these as much as I did! Cheers. ;)
Last week we featured a fantastic set of 3d models and I felt the urge to go a little further and find someone that makes exquisite traditional sculpture, and I've definitely found him: American artist Trevor Grove. We might agree that although being young, Trevor has already mastered his art, because these are the work of a truly genius sculptor. What a talented fella! Here you can see some of his personal projects, like the toon-up versions of Breaking Bad characters, as well as pieces done to legendary Sideshow Collectibles. I would have all of his pieces in a heart-beat.
I really get pumped about good character design. It's awesome to see an illustration of a cool character, but 3D characters are an eye-candy I'm pretty sure everyone loves to see, like these, by Belgian designer Olivier Couston. Olivier comes up with some sweet character design! These are so heavy influenced by Pixar that it's clear Olivier is a fan to the their movies, which is great. These are very classy and you know you'd love to see these character having their stories developed in some kind of animation.
When you talk about the Renaissance the thing that comes to the mind is art! Magnificent art. We're talking about Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and all the ninja turtles (just kidding). And a place where you'll find concentrated art is a cathedral. Cathedrals were the perfect canvas for Renaissance artists... there you'll find amazing sculptures and breathtaking ceiling art. Those ceilings are something completely apart! So I thought it was really important to share with you some of the most amazing cathedral ceilings in the world.
Now these have impressed me! I really love sculptures and it's great to find a fresh set of pieces such as these by Spanish artist Irma Gruenholz. Her style is simply lovely with its kid's book feel to it... so check out her work! For more of these great sculptures, please visit her portfolio at Behance! Also, if you know any more great artists like her, let us know! Cheers. ;)
I really enjoy a well designed toy. Some action figures are so cool that anyone would proudly display them in the shelf, like these bad boys below... a fantastic set of toys designed by South Korean artist Coolrain Lee. Look at these! They're so slick! You should totally check his Behance portfolio for more of these! He'll definitely enjoy your visit. I hope you like it. Cheers! ;)
Some artists got that kind of talent that transports us to a world of complete awe, making us not believe that someone would be so much talented like that. That's exactly the case of Shintaro Ohata, an artist from Hiroshima. He came up with a mesmerizing technique of mixing both 2D and 3D pieces, paintings and sculptures. It looks like living drawings, just waiting to keep moving, not being stuck to that depicted moment. Fantastic indeed.
Polymer Clay always have been to me, a fun and experimental thing as a kid. But clay artist, illustrator, sculptor and photographer named Raku Inoue, really is mastering this media into his craft. Born in a suburban area of Tokyo, Japan and now based in Montreal, Qc of Canada; Raku is now keeping the challenge on expanding his creativity on new horizons. I spent most of my childhood as most Japanese kids do: watching anime, reading manga and playing outside with my friends.
What do you do with your old books? We mostly see them in libraries, garage sale and more. Nevertheless old books tend to get dirty, useless and dusty. But this artist originally coming from Montreal, Qc of Canada, founded another way to give a new life to these old books.
These are crazy awesome. I know one thing: it takes a lot of talent to shape sand into a freaking awesome typography piece. To make that, the guy must be a true artist and probably half ninja. These are some amazing examples of sand sculpture done right. If it was me, I would probably have to use cement to get the exact same results... but since I'm not doing these, I don't have to worry, because these sculptures are in good hands. I hope you enjoy these! And if you know any more great sand sculptures like these, let us know!! Cheers! ;)
I've seen some pretty insane and creepy sculptures lately... some really graphic ones. I really dig those realistic sculptures, that look like you're staring at real beasts and monsters.
The art of assembly is probably one of the greatest. I remember watching movies like Edward Scissor Hands and thinking "wow, that guys really know how to assemble the right things to make awesome creations". Andrea Petrachi might be just one of those inventors.
As tradition demands, we MUST have fun on friday. We all had a tough week, and nothing better just to chill a little bit, right? Fabio and I were talking about that fun movie Ninja Assassin... we thought it would be a great idea for a post, Ninjas!!
Last night I was reading my RSS feeds and I stumbled across a fantastic image of a porcelain sculpture of a rabbit with a human skeleton, I was simply amazed by the level of details and movement of that piece. So I decided to check out more about the artist behind that. Her name is Kate D.
From time to time, we run into some artists that really catch our attention, and to do that, an artist must stand outside the box, and come up with something entirely fresh and awesome and that's just what Thomas Doyle did. He developed a technique to build miniatures that awes me. Because of the mini, mini size, the level of details is stunning! And the cool thing is that all of his work has a lot of imagination whitin... which makes it even more interesting.
Lately I'm on a gaming fever. Video games have been a part of my life since ever, and there are some games that just stand out, for its quality, and most of all, for its badassness. Yeah, we love badass games, like the awesome God of War. So I went looking for some cool illustration of it, and found out some really cool ones, and I got say, that Kratos is like an freaking mythologic Chuck Norris. This guy would seriously tear apart a 20ft monster with his bare hands. No, seriously. Hahaha, just kidding...
Sculptures can be made nearly out of everything. While I was searching for some images I saw a photo of a sand sculpture and was impressed, what people can do out of sand and also how big and detailed they can be, just awesome. After a few searches on Flickr and DeviantArt, I ended up selecting 40 simply awesome sand sculptures. I hope you enjoy my little collection :)
