James Hance is an incredibly talented character artist and painter. His art features a wide range of Stars Wars, Muppets, celebrity and pop culture references.
Here's an exerpt from his website explaining his three distinct styles:"James appears to have three styles of painting, extremely expressive such as in one of a few depictions of Heath Ledger in the role of Joker, highly painterly in pieces such as his Starwars influenced tribute to the classic Hitchcock thriller North by Northwest and photorealistic "digitally enhanced" paintings such as The Gentle Sith. There are plenty of in-jokes in Hance's portfolio, and it does, from time to time, veer close to socio-cultural comment such as his hauntingly disturbing piece entitled 'Music and Me'."
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.
This shot of the sunrise has a wonderful mix of pink and blue.
Steve Bell has a knack for capturing sunrises at the beach. Each of these photos does a wonderful job capturing the incredible light and color of the sunrise. If you enjoy these photos, you can buy prints of his work at RedBubble.
This photo captures some sharp reds and orange along the horizon and some more subtle shades as you get further away.
This photo has very vibrant red, orange, and yellow, contrasted by the silhouettes in the foreground.
This is an amazing series of lomography photos by Gavin Hammond. It features black and white reflections of London's architecture, landmarks and people. It's definitely a unique and beautiful look at London. As if being a great photographer weren't enough, Hammond also happens to be the songwriter/producer of the electro pop group Sweet Tooth.
Thomas Birke's urban photography really makes cities come to life. His photos give a preview of what life might be like in the future. To portray this, he takes photos of densly populated areas and tries to show at least 1,000 people and their traces in each picture. By capturing illuminated windows and light streaks of vehicles, you can see the footprint of urban environments. I highly recommend viewing his photos in full resolution to truly get a sense of what he is capturing.
