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. Martina Naldi martina-naldi.tumblr.com I made this illustration in Photoshop CS6 and with a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet. I wanted to replicate the textures of the ocean, so I used two or three custom brushes in order to create this effect.

Lisa Fotios www.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/Lisa90 Image of the issue To create this I used stock images from various websites, and for the underwater part, I combined three water and sea pictures and blended them together. I then changed the opacity and colour of the rock to give the illusion that it is underwater. David Pavlik www.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/da505 I started this image with the idea of creating something around sadness. It took me two days to complete this artwork, and it was composed of 92 layers. I used a lot of stock images in order to put this image together. Corine Spring www.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/SpringDA This picture was inspired by French artist Mr Xerty and is comprised of stock images. Lighting effects were used on the headlights of the car, and textures were used to create the mottled effect in the sky. Nathan Nascimento www.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/Nathan This image…

Here’s what you created. Challenge entries The best entries and overall challenge winner 1 Michael McLoughlin Teapot Faced Fairy I used all four images for this image. The teapot was converted into a house, with the clocks from the building image used too. The girl image was used inside the teapot. 2 Emma Littlefair Sunday Afternoon Colour I particularly liked the start image of the colour splodges and I used this as my inspiration. Turning the lady into a pencil drawing, I incorporated the splodges into the image and used a brush to add in the extra graphic effects. 3 Robin Crude Beauty Among Flowers I blended…
