Digital Artist Ingrid Tsy Uses Adobe Stock Assets as the Foundation of Her Wildly Imaginative 3D Artworks

Inspiration for a creative endeavor can come from anywhere: music, art, movies, or maybe a good book. While digital artist Ingrid Tsy relies on many of these to kickstart her 3D renderings, her process isn’t as straightforward as picking up a pencil or camera. Tsy instead draws a direct influence from existing imagery—like assets found on Adobe Stock—as the foundation for her digital designs that have caught the attention of clients like Adobe, Lexus, and the Coachella music festival.

In this new series, Tsy used a number of photographs and textures available through Adobe Stock as the building blocks for her inventive digital sculptures. Tsy finds time every day to create a new digital sketch, spending 30 minutes to over an hour until an idea fully manifests itself on screen, a moment where everything “clicks.” See how Tsy transforms images from Adobe Stock into a new original artwork in these videos from Adobe Create Magazine.

Adobe Stock Contributor Highlight: Dreamlike Views of Finland Captured by Tiina Törmänen

Finding the perfect visual asset for your next creative project can seem like a daunting endeavor. With an endless stream of possibilities it can be difficult to find the image or video that truly stands out and speaks to your audience in a unique way. Recognizing this, Adobe has gathered together some of the most eye-popping imagery you won’t find anywhere else available through Adobe Stock Premium.

For the month of March, in conjunction with Women’s History Month, Adobe is celebrating its own female creators. This week we explore Finnish photographer Tiina Törmänen who has already lived a multitude of lives with years spent perfecting her skills as a BMX biker, working as professional chef, and apprenticing in a photographer’s studio. Her wildly diverse background now influences her breathtaking landscape photography, where trekking solo at night on a snow mobile—with emergency skis strapped to the side—is just part of the job.

Although Törmänen has had a camera in-hand for much of her life, it was only recently that she began to point it away from people and out into the expansive landscape that surrounds her. Endless fields of stars, shimmering northern lights, and secretive forest scenes are all hallmarks of her photography. Törmänen likens the skills required to shoot landscapes to those she used for people, a split-second moment where clicking the shutter captures “the soul of the person, the landscape, where you can see the true beauty of it all.”

You can find many of Törmänen’s incredible photographs available for licensing in Adobe Stock’s Premium collection, a selection of highly curated images as unique as your next creative project. Adobe Stock is seamlessly integrated into Creative Cloud applications, so you can search, view, edit, and license photographs, videos, illustrations, vector graphics, 3D assets and more without leaving your creative workflow. Monthly subscription plans are available for individuals, small teams, and enterprise solutions. Learn more about plans and pricing on Adobe Stock.

Explore Japanese Art, Design, and Architecture in the Free JAPAN 99+1 Travel Guide (Sponsored) 

Nakajima Library, Akita International University

For the last six months an international group of writers, designers, and travel experts has written a guide to Japan that avoids typical tourist spots and focuses instead on exciting design-centric travel to places visitors rarely explore.

The free downloadable book, JAPAN 99+1: Traveling Through Art, Design, and Architecture, and its companion website, has been published by the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) as a way to help travel agencies and planners discover entirely new ways of experiencing a country famous for temples, cherry trees, and ancient traditions of design and craft.

Many of the locales mentioned, whether inside the Tokyo metropolis or remote countryside areas and islands, have been designed by Japan’s best architects, so there’s a strong emphasis on this part of the experience. To put it all into context, Editor-in-chief Roland Hagenberg has interviewed these architects about their work, but within the frame of actual locations you can experience in person during your travels in Japan.

Although the print edition of JAPAN 99+1 is free, its global distribution is limited primarily to the travel industry. However, the same content and more can be found on the project’s website, art.japan.travel, for you to discover right now. Download your free digital copy of JAPAN 99+1, no registration required.
