Beautiful Fonts

Beautiful Fonts

A small studio from Estonia specializes only in developing unusual beautiful fonts. But this is only a commercial offer, you can’t get the fonts for free. This post has demonstrations of pictures, written with some HandMadeFont fonts. At least, it should motivate other people to think of their own unique font, that can be used to sign an electronic postcard. It’s not complicated at all.

Eat Me

Eat Me

Eat me is the title of the first picture. The author is a 20-year-old Lizzy John from New York. To be honest, when I first looked at the pictures, I got the impression that the artist is a professional who’s been doing computer graphics for all her life. The images are so clear and concise. The characters are very unearthly, and their environment is as well. How can this be born in the imagination?

Creepy

Creepy

When Michael Slack was a child, he wanted to be a monster from children’s cartoons. But somehow that didn’t work out :) Then he decided to create his own creepy world. It all started with drawing characters, then he did commercial illustrations, then animation, then his own cartoons. Now he’s a freelance artist, working only for himself. Let’s look at his works.

Burlesque

Burlesque

When you understand what exactly inspires a person, his works become easier to understand. For this German artist a muse is a burlesque dancer and some edgy but memorable style of depicting characters. I think the artist should make a whole series of pictures with cabare dancers. These ones turned out very sweet. And, of course, Dita von Teese, as the only representative of the shows’ tradition in our time. We couldn’t do without her :)

Bubble

Bubble

There is a thought that not all people who work as designers, are artists. If you think about it, you get sick of any work over time, And creative professions exhaust imagination rather quickly. Well, here is a disproof. Lia  is a professional web-designer, and her works will say for themselves.

Wow

Wow

… Wow, wow! You will definitely like the works of this artist. Each picture is so multidimensional. This is done in a special drawing technique. If you think about that, each picture consists of tens and hundreds of layers with different colors and transparency levels. In the end there is a masterpiece. By the way, Maria used Adobe Illustrator for this.

Background

Background

These are the drawings by an Italian girl Nonnetta. She’s got really interesting photos in her portfolio. They’re fresh, with a feeling of reality. But I really liked the series of drawings Blue background. It looks almost like a comic. Besides, the topic of sad head-balls who are chasing hearts, is really for my mood.

Boys Love

Boys Love

Boys Love graphics. It’s either because love between boys is meant, or because the author really likes to draw boys. The graphics is very interesting – of-hand-art. It’s something average, actually. It’s beautiful with nothing too much. If you like this, there’ll be one more selection.

In the Animal World

In the Animal World

Christopher Pope (the author of these works) fell in love with wild nature when he was a child and lived in small villages of Southern Australis. Animals, birds, nature inspire him a lot and make him want to share his emotions with other people. The drawings are very live, I should say. You won’t notice how they are different from photos on a small scale – that’s how great all details are drawn.

Black Humor Pictures

Black Humor Pictures

Sheharzad Arshad is not an ordinary person. He’s known by many nicknames, mainly because of his activity as an illustrator. And, you know, it’s really boring to sign your own name in a profession like that. His pictures and cartoons are rather funny. But if you can’t stand black humor, you won’t see any fun in them. His works are rather famous – as famous as black humor itself.

Game Characters

Game Characters

The author of these drawings is an illustrator Sinad Jaruartjanapat from Thailand. And it seems that Sinad is a real gamer. Although it’s not surprising, as Korea, the main supplier of games, is relatively close to him. Sinad likes fantasy style, because there are no limits to an imagination in it. But the author draws game characters more often, for example, Dragonwar Tactics, Elitism, Final Fantasy and the Perfect World.

Diane Ozdamar Art Gallery

Diane Ozdamar Art Gallery

Perfect pieces of art by a 23-year-old artist from France. This is absolute professionalism, that either lonely geniuses or students who picked the right place to study have. Diane Özdamar belongs to both categories. Her art-gallery will move everyone. Just imagine, it6 took 7-50 hours for Diane to finish each painting – depending on how complex they were, of course.

Cartoon Kids

Cartoon Kids

There once lived a girl who really liked to draw. But her boring work didn’t give her enough time for that and killed all the creativeness in her. So one day the girl quit her office work and became a freelance artist. The works of this girl, Melani Sie from Indonesia re what we’re going to see now. The selection mainly has cartoon kids. Maybe they’re symbolic for Melani, like a new life.

Shrek

Shrek

The cartoon Shrek came out in 2001 and got almost $500 million. Dreamworks owes this success to its artists and animators. Erwin Madrid, while he was still in art school, was allowed to work on Shrek. Later he became a visual developer. In the post you’ll find illustrations you already know that were done by Erwin for Shrek.

Bears Pictures

Bears Pictures

Well, what can I say. Here are sweet pictures with bears of different elements, so to say :) you can choose any of them. The author is a 26-year-old Australian with a million of drawing ideas that struggle to be free. Right now, she is held only by the financial aspect – tablets are costly, you know…. In my opinion, she’s best with chibics, like on these pictures with bears.

Fractal Art

Fractal Art

We’ve already posted some fractal art.  This time it’s more complicated. The fractals are placed into decorations and create a live picture. These are not just complicated patterns, but a try to convey the form of some subjects through some things. For example, tulip fields, grapes or a bouquet of chamomilles. If you liked the pictures and want to see more of them, the link is below.

Red Square of the Night Watch

Red Square of the Night Watch

There is a popular game Night Watch, and it has this photo of Red Square on the first page. As a rule, a few options are always created for such project. And you’ll have a chance to evaluate them. The author is M.Pavel.

Seven Deadly Sins

Seven Deadly Sins

So, the seven deadly sins: anger, jealousy, greed, lust, laziess, vanity and gluttony. It’s hard to find who defined them like this. But each person has easily made the needed associations. Marta Dahlig has created what is probably the most expressive series of pictures on the topic of deadly sins. I won’t be surprised if you’ve come across these pictures already.

Tchiby

Tchiby

A series of kavai tchibies by Celesse. By the way, the tchibies are not just a definition of someone small, but also a whole genre of drawing anime and manga.

Dark Forest

Dark Forest

A series of gothic cartoons The Horror Forest (Dark Forest)by an artist Patricio Oliver. The series is not commercial, it was created just to tell about weird characters that might live near us, but in 3D personification. Patricio Oliver reminded me of Tim Barton with his pale and weird characters.

White Snow

White Snow

White Snow is the name of the title picture. I really liked the combination of the colors and the precise drawing. Where snow is, must be someone in red :) the size will fit for wallpapers. It’s computer graphics using Corel Painter. The author is a Canadian student Qinni. He does cartoon drawings, some of them have great plot.

Anima

Anima

European, American and Japanese gamers have lots of fun playing an RPG Anima. One of them, Wen-m, draws his favorite characters and heroes of the game.

Character Design

Character Design

Why would anyone need character design? Well, it could be used for a game, cartoon or advertisement. If there is demand, there is an offer. And, by the way, this offer is very nice, even though it has teeth. The author is torka from Urugwai, and he does character design: different cartoon monsters, robots and sea dwellers. They would look great on avatars.

Merry Christmas

Merry christmas

Pictures and postcards that are Christmas-themed. Christmas has long passed, but still. It’s a great family holiday, and this is what matters. Unfortunately, I don’t know who’s the author. The pictures are large so they weigh a lot.

Owl

Owl

Kluke Artist

Kluke Artist

Alice in Wonderland is probably envious of the landskapes and characters by Kluke (from Russia). They do have something in common, don’t you think? Or they don’t? Or is it obvious, but I just can’t put my finger on it? Oh, and there’s the White Rabbit…

Vector

Vector

It’s a beautiful picture, isn’t it? Well, it’s beautiful, but it’s not a picture. It’s just photorealistic graphics. You could even call it vector graphics. This picture consists of a huge number of layers (600 – 4,000), that were drawn just using the mouse and Photoshop. How? A Pen Tool, that everyone is so afraid of. And you shouldn’t be, because if you learn how to use it once, you’ll always surprise people with beautiful vector pictures. This selection has lots of images of celebrities.

Anime in Pictures

Anime in Pictures

Lanny Suhandy, Indonesia. He paints beautiful anime pictures. I had to get some series together: Naturo, Alice in Wonderland, and simply contest pictures. Enjoy :)

Dark Anime

Dark Anime

Very beautiful anime drawings, nice compositions and plots. But the author decided to stay anonymous. I really like how some pictures are different from the others. Bright and kind ones versus depressive and dark. Let’s praise the modest and talented Dark134.

Martina Strobel – Vector Graphics

Martina Strobel - Vector Graphics

Some vector art from a German artist Martina Strobel.

Raquel Aparicio: Graphics

Raquel Aparicio: Graphics

There’s something from optical illusions in the works of this Spanish artist. At least that’s the impression I hot from looking at the first works. Then you understand that not everything was great in her life. It’s all gloomy and not joyous. Well, it’s a typical autumn mood. But don’t even think about suicide, you’ve got to go to work tomorrow.

Sixteen Miles to Merricks

Sixteen Miles to Merricks

I don’t know who’s Barnaby Ward, and I don’t know what he wanted to tell with his album Sixteen Miles to Merricks, but I definitely like his works.

Forest Fairies

Forest Fairies

The creative soul of Bente Schlick draws very beautifully and lightly. And this is just what a soul should do.

Graffiti by Banksy

Graffiti by Banksy

We haven’t had graffiti here for a while, especially from such acknowledged masters like Robert Banksy. Banksy works in a very recognizable satirical manner. He writes (not paints) about things that worry him. His works became first samples of street-art that were sold for tens of thousands of pounds, and that happened on Sotheby’s auction. His graffiti can be seen in many countries, although he leaves most of his works on London walls. That’s probably why in 2007 he was acknowledged as the greatest among living British artists. Of course, he did not come to the award ceremony, because he hides for all these years and very seldom gives interviews.

Vector Graphics from Brazil

Vector Graphics from Brazil

Hot Brazilian guy Mateu Velasco makes hot Brazilian vector pictures. It’s hard to convey mood in a couple of colors, but it seems he’s good with this. And the absence of lots of colour surely allows to be distracted by details – and there are lots of them on his pictures.

Brazilian Graphics by Will Murai

Brazilian Graphics by Will Murai

We have a guest from Brazil here. There are lots of wild monkeys and Mateu Velasco, as well as Will Murai. But Will is completely different. His works are not as graphic, they have more color and space for fantasy. But he’s got enough realism, too.

P.S. On iPod’s picture is Mahatma Ghandi.

Spring is Here

Spring is Here
It’s not typical (at least where I live) but it’s here. The spring is the year’s morning. You wish for colors and movement. The works of Kaze-Hime (from Canada) have nothing to do with this season, but for me they are spring and thats exactly what I wanted.

Fractal

Fractal
Pictures with fractals from Alexey Ermushev. Those unusual things were created with the help of a special program Apophysis (a program for creating fractal flames). Fractal art is a separate type of graphics, despite its direct link to geometry. You’d think – wha could be interesting in weird geometrical figures? But when you look at them, you gradually start feeling separated from reality. You are not on the Internet anymore, you’re in space! Oh, those indefinities!

Gorillaz

Gorillaz
I don’t know if this will outdo the skull pictures, but this has enough skulls and bad ones with teeth, as well. The stylistics of the pictures is very much like Gorillaz characters, isn’t it? But the author of these works didn’t invent gorillaz. The artist is a lady from Sweden who says she’s only 17. Her early works, when she was 14, you can see among the rest of the pictures. To be honest, I’m very doubtful about the age. In any case, I hope you’ll like it.

CG

CG

My crazy love for pure CG art led me to the gallery of the artist named Charlie from Chicago. She’s modest and charming, still a teenager, but she paints so beautifully. By the way, I’m posting computer graphics all the time, so this category is constantly updated. This is like looking at canvas paintings – it can be equally exciting.

P.S. CG art – Computer Graphics Art winked

Cartoon Pictures

Cartoon Pictures
Have you ever heard about Walt Disney? There were times when his cartoons had lots of fans. I once hurt an eyebrow while I was hurrying to watch Duck Stories after dinner. Those who could draw the characters were heroes. It was a long time ago, but even now a lot of people like Disney cartoons. Brianna Garcia is a student in art school, she paints great pictures with cartoons: Disney, Sailormoon, Beetlejuice. They are like the real ones.
