These are some incredibly interesting cut-out portraits by Lucas C. Simões. He takes a seemingly normal portrait and transforms it into something completely unique and interesting. These cut-outs are made from the same stacked image and have up to 13 layers. I love the abstract geometric figures and shapes he has created with these portraits.
From the fashion photographer who brought us the wonderful set of beauty photos comes this great set of fashion artworks. Daniela Glunz masterfully mixes fashion photos with paint splatters to create these colorful and dynamic works.
This amazing paper cut-out artwork was created by Bovey Lee.
Here's his description of the work, "The foreground involves a sort of kids fight, surrounded by giant jellyfish being rushed to shore by the crashing waves. The mid-ground consists of two oil drilling platforms, collapsing, exploding, and catching on fire. The main figure is the girl on the couch who is unaware of what’s about to happen and laughing away. In the back, the threatening waves are in full throttle, while elephants balance on beach balls at the edge of a wall of water."
Love these illustrations by Claire Hummel (shoomlah on Deviant Art). Claire redrew Disney princesses to have more historically accurate attire. To see some of the resources she used for the dress designs, read her resource page. You can also read an FAQ about this series.
Gabriel Moreno is a gifted illustrator, engraver and painter based out of Madrid. His illustrations consist of a collage of elements and make excellent use of very defined lines which he uses to create depth, shading and shadows. The splash of water colors helps to bring an added touch of life to his drawings.
This is a very interesting series by French design duo HELMO (Thomas Couderc and Clément Vauchez) called Bêtes de Mode. Each photo in the series combines a person in a bluish hue and an animal in a redish hue in synchronous poses.This combination gives the images the look of a 3D image without the glasses. I'm not sure if the animals were chosen for each person for a reason, but when they look this cool, I'm not sure that it matters.
I am loving the digital illustrations of Denis Gonchar. His illustrations make great use of colors, lines, shapes and textures. Even though the pieces may have a similar feel, they were all created using different methods. You can feel a sense of exploration and experimentation with his works.
Denis Zilber creates some amazing caricature illustrations. His work has been widely seen around the internet as well as publications such as GQ. He makes great use of exaggeration, colors, textures and composition to create a unique and memorable style. Check out his blog to keep up to date on his work.
Mari Kasurinen has a knack for turning My Little Pony dolls into anything she wants. She's turned them into everything from Lady Gaga to Skeletor. These ponies have incredible likenesses to the subjects they are modeled after and each one is done with great care and detail. Check out more of her ponies on Flickr.
I absolutely love these drawings by Adam Ellis. Adam just browses through his friends' Facebook images, chooses his favorite ones, and draws them. I love the style and humorous liberties he takes on each photo. You can even get one of yourself!
