There’s nothing more inspiring than surfing the internet and seeing what other artists are creating, and we encourage you to do so. Here are some of our favourite pictures that caught our attention recently, from some of the world’s most exciting artists and designers. Adam Spizak www.spizak.com Adjustment layers and colour correction in Adobe Photoshop were key for this image; I was able to add contrast and correct imperfections, resulting in a clearer and sharper image. All the particles and dust were also created using brushes, set to the Screen mode. Christi du Toit christidutoit.co.za This was created as part of a group project where each illustrator was given a letter of the alphabet to interpret however they liked. Photoshop is my weapon of choice; this was drawn from the ground up in Photoshop, using custom…

Sulaiman Almawash www.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/suliman%20almawash Image of the issue When I photographed this bird, I loved the overlapping colours of the feathers and the wings. The idea then came to me to use brushes and paint-stock photos to execute this look for a Photoshop project! Murilo Henrique www.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/Murilo%20Henrique I had the idea with this image to create a bear being carried away by the river, and to create a natural environment that was vibrant with adjustment layers. The movie The Jungle Book inspired this a lot. UillsamCavalcante www.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/Uillsam This took six hours to complete. I merged multiple images from different angles, but with very similar lighting; I used Dodge, Burn, Color Balance and Unsharp to get the lightness, peace and tranquillity of this picture. Randy Monteith www.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/Snowdog This project is over 80 layers. Brushes were used to cut out parts of the model’s…

zombie studio

ABOUT THE STUDIO Zombie Studio www.zombiestudio.com.br Zombie is a creative studio that integrates several disciplines in the production of images and animations for clients around the world. The studio has been awarded at many festivals throughout its existence. There’s nothing uncommon about artists and designers seeking perfection, and the best pieces of artwork are often the ones that take longest. In a studio though, it’s only natural that most of your career is spent working against the clock, and the meticulous nature of an artist can be compromised. This is something Zombie Studio fights against. “We pursue perfection, trying to do everything better than the briefing we receive,” says Paulo Garcia, co-founder of Zombie Studio. “Our beliefs and values have helped Zombie Studio to achieve the recognition that we have today. We never deviate from…
