Three-Dimensional Hoop Embroidery Accented With Clay by Justyna Wołodkiewicz 

Artist Justyna Wołodkiewicz mixes embroidery with abstract clay forms in order to produce three-dimensional works that spring from traditional hoops. The pieces weave together bold threads with equally bright polymer clay shapes, creating multi-textured surfaces from the diverse materials.

The artist typically starts with a miniature sketch before embarking on molding the clay structures she wishes to include in each piece, stitching the final clay works into the surface of the embroidered hoop. Wołodkiewicz sells her works on her Etsy shop “Nibyniebo” which means “just like the sky.” You can see more of her sculptural embroidery on her Instagram and Facebook. (via Colossal Submissions)

Makin’ Moves: A Wild Animated Dance Short by Kouhei Nakama 

How fun is this? TOO FUN. Behold the latest video from art director Kouhei Nakama who uses a variety of generative and particle-based animation techniques to bring 3D figures to life in this motion graphics short aptly titled MAKIN’ MOVES. We marveled last year at another video by Nakama, Cycles. Music by Broke For Free. (via Prosthetic Knowledge)

Reaction: An Experimental Particle Animation by Anton Woll Söder 

Here’s a lovely bit of experimental visual goodness from Swedish motion designer Anton Woll Söder in collaboration with CypherAudio. Söder shares that the animation began as an exercise to learn more about VFX software Houdini and slowly evolved into the clip you see here. In recent years, the rapid evolution of PCs and the development of software like Houdini and Cinema 4D has created new possibilities for intricate particle-based animations. Prime examples include clips seen previously on Colossal like Cycle and the dance piece from the AICP Awards. You can see more of Söder’s visual effects work on Behance. (via Vimeo Staff Picks)

Elegant Wireframe Animal Renderings by 3D Artist Mat Szulik 

matszulik_02

Freelance illustrator and 3D artist Mat Szulik (previously) creates incredibly realistic models, digitally rendering figures that appear as if they were formed from materials such as wood, and most recently wire. His latest project, titled The Wires v2, presents the outlines of forest creatures, horses, and beetles, each placed in stark, white environments or amongst trees built in the same style as the wire animals. The renderings are almost entirely silver wire, yet many also contain a gold core to add a further layer of dimensionality. You can see works from Szulik’s first wire series, The Wires v1, as well as other 3D projects on his Behance.

French 3D artist Jean-Michel Bihorel has been rendering films for the past 6 years, while also keeping up with personal projects that utilize the same professional tools. In his latest works, he has produced two digital sculptures of the female form composed of a sample of dry flowers. In the first work the body is completely shaped from the floral sample, the woman shown in different poses that demonstrate her whole form. The second rendered figure is focused on just the torso, and has a cracking marble skin that reveals flowers inside. You can see more of Biohrel’s digital sculptures on his Behance.
