Elegant Dimensional Renderings of Animals and People by Maxim Shkret 

maxim-1

Moscow-based illustrator Maxim Shkret conjurs the flowing hair of people and the tangled fur of beasts in this lovely ongoing series of digital illustrations. Mixing a unique method of 3d modeling with carefully applied shadows, each piece evokes the form of a paper-like sculpture. You can see more on Shkret’s Instagram.

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.

Digital Sculptures of Female Forms Rendered in Flowers by Jean-Michel Bihorel

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.

A New 3D Graffiti Mural in Hong Kong by Peeta 

peeta-1

Venice-based artist Peeta merges his passions for graffiti writing, sculpture, and design in his large-scale spray murals that look like swirling three dimensional objects that float just above a wall or canvas. The trompe l’oeil artworks take on the form of graffiti-like letterforms but aren’t necessarily meant to be read or deciphered. Instead the pieces focus more on the use of line, shadow, and color to build impressive voluminous shapes that explode in every direction.

Peeta created this latest mural for the HKWALLS festival. The piece occupies a giant facade on a busy Hong Kong intersection above the Golden Computer Arcade and draws its color for neighboring buildings and signs. You can see his behind-the-scenes process over on Behance.

Ghostly Portraits Painted Onto Layers of Netting by Uttaporn Nimmalaikaew

Thai artist Uttaporn Nimmalaikaew paints portraits on layers of fine netting or tulle, deftly producing an analog 3D effect with subjects who appear to be sitting in chairs or lying down on beds. When circling the paintings they morph and shift, changing form depending on the viewer’s distance and location to the piece. These subjects are often his family, a way for the artist to pause his loved ones’ aging process and preserve them in time.

Nimmalaikaew first discovered the technique while a student at Silpakorn University in Bangkok after a stray speck of paint landed on a mosquito net in his studio. Witnessing the dimensionality the surface afforded the paint, he began to explore new ways in which to paint on the utilitarian material.

For each piece Nimmalaikaew begins with a digital drawing which he then prints life-size to determine the subject’s form and texture. He then begins to paint the layers with oil paint in a style that he calls “tulle-painting style.” In an 2014 interview he explained, “Over time, I have learnt that the tulle demands a different way of creating realistic light and shadow for the material. The top layer gives details for the optical illusion. Then I connect each layer with clear copolymer line to make it all fit together and create depth in the image.”

You can see more of the 33-year-old artist’s work on Yavus Gallery or the artist’s Facebook. (via Juxtapoz and Booooooom)

Raw & Rendered: Experimental 3D Artworks by Joey Camacho 

raw-1

In early 2014, Vancouver-based graphic artist Joey Camacho set out to learn more about rendering images using Cinema 4D and Octane Render, with the goal of creating a new piece each day. His first attempts were pretty rudimentary, but it wasn’t long before his exploration and experimentation began to pay off with increasinly subtle details inspired by biology, sound, and geometry. Only several months into his ‘Progress Before Perfection‘ project, he started getting requests for prints as his images were shared widely around Tumblr and elsewhere. You can see more of his work on Behance and prints of many pieces are available through his website.
