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 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?
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.
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
… 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
