You might recognize the style from Alexia Sinclair's sister series, The Regal Twelve. This one features twelve nobles and monarchs.To create these amazing works, Alexia weaved together very specific elements from her own photos and illustrations. Here is how the series is described on her site:
"Legends of the lives of the nobles continue to captivate us today, from the pampered decadence of Louis XIV to the epic legend of Alexander the Great. Other rulers who also form this series are less renowned yet equally intriguing. An unusual blend of Royalty, their selection was based on their contrasts in leadership, their flamboyancies and their enduring influence upon society."
Here are some extremely realistic oil paintings of rain on car windows. They were painted by artist Gregory Thielker. These paintings make you feel like you are driving in your car on a rainy day. The rain streaks and water droplets are definitely top notch.
Christophe Gilbert is a master of mixing realities. His digital art looks like it could happen in real life, but we all know it can't. I am especially fond of the fake outfit pieces. Check out more awesome on his portfolio.
If you are a comic book lover, then you'll love this series of prints by Danny Haas. Haas gives a side by side comparison of super heroes with their secret identities. Loving the grunge looks and colors and minimalist character outlines. You can get the art prints at Society6. If you like these, you might also like Super Heroes Painted by Arian Noveir.
These sweet posters are part of the Hero and Villain series by Simon C. Page. They feature some well known rivalries: Luke Skywalker vs Darth Vader, Batman vs Penguin and Spiderman vs Green Goblin. I especially like the Batman and Spiderman posters which feature the foreground-background optical illusion.
Tricia Clarke-Stone (aka The Glam Foodie) of Sip, Chat, Chow gives us a look at what high end breakfast cereals would look like. I love the use of play on words and fun designs.
"It was inspired by my love of fashion, style and amazing food. I wanted to take something we all crave and give it a luxury lift. This tasty, chic collection gives a high-end, glam aesthetic to our favorite breakfast treats."
Deviant Art user swinspeed has a way of creating captivating landscapes. Each one has an elegance and solitude about it. He makes great use of dark clouds and highly contrasting colors in many of his works, which creates an ominous yet epic feel.
