Moving apartments in Tel Aviv, walking around the various areas of the city, sparked and old-new love for architecture for Tel Aviv based designer / illustrator Avner Gicelter. This evolved into a wonderful personal project, inspired by José Guízar’s ‘Windows of New York’, in which Avner illustrates complete and interesting buildings across the city. The end results is remarkable… each one a poster, with attention to the buildings smallest features and colors referencing the city. 12 so far, and hopefully many more to come in this visual reference of Tel Aviv, Israel.
You can never have enough 2d cutout people for your renders. A steady supply is needed to avoid repetition and today I stumbled upon this great looking site and resource by Teodor Javanaud Emdén called SKALGUBBAR. It is an online library of free high-resolution cutout images of people for your renderings. Finding people images on the internet was hard so Teodor started to take photos of his friends and they all started to use them in their visualizations.
I just have to share this amazing labor of love by inspiring CG Artist – Marek Denko. Titled “Rooftops, Rockets and Adventures Beyond” and easily ranks among the best and most amazing visuals I’ve seen to date – subject, composition, color, details, Details, DETAILS! A lot of love went into this gift he made for his children… A feast for the eyes and soul.
Each year, the day after Thanksgiving in the united states kick-starts the Christmas shopping season. This Friday is Black Friday. Doesn’t sound that good you might say… well, it is said the name originated from the heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic occurring on the day after Thanksgiving – coloring the streets black. Later an alternative explanation suggested that this day marked the transition to profit and thus starting to write numbers in the books with black ink instead of negative red. Which ever way it was – It is a chance for you to get good deals… And this is exactly what I will try to gather for you here!
Had to take some time off blog & work these days, but there is always room for sights of beautiful places on the world we live in. This time going down under with Nathan Kaso who made this wonderful short tilt-shift time-lapse video of the ‘Toy Boats’ in Sydney, Australia. Shot over a 3 day span, the tilt-shift effect was done in Photoshop.
Here’s a little treat for the weekend. I stumbled upon these great city time lapses by photographer Rob Whitworth, who manages to capture the cities vibe and convey it pretty remarkably. He makes me want to grab my bag and just head out there! Great visuals, great sound… and even greater editing work, making it all tick! Enjoy…
