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. Ahmed’s low-poly artwork has been featured by Wacom’s online gallery. We personally love the detail and effort that must have gone into this piece with every triangle; it feels detailed considering it’s low poly. Ahmed Karamwww.behance.net/ahmed21karamThis image started off as a sketch before the low-poly triangles were added and then filled with colour. This image was created in Photoshop with a Wacom Intuos tablet. Double exposures look really easy to create, but Aly’s piece proves that there is a lot of blending and tweaking in getting…

Andreas Schmalzwww.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/A.S-ArtworksImage of the issue I like the beautiful Chinese mountain region of Songshan, so I laid out some pictures of it and added fantasy elements, such as the waterfall and temple, to it. After I felt the components were right, I started adding light, shadows and colour. Joseph Xerriphotoshopcreative.co.uk/user/joseph.xerriThe idea behind this artwork was to create a fantasy image to promote a casino slot game. Using basic Photoshop tools and digital-painting techniques, I was able to create this artwork showing a mermaid protecting treasure. Yasser Khaddorphotoshopcreative.co.uk/user/castillanoI made this image by composing five images: the earth, the moon floor, the sky, the ball and the person sitting on a wall. I focused more on shadows and brightness, and finished with Gaussian blur and a gradient map. Svetlana Klimovaphotoshopcreative.co.uk/user/Svetlana%20KlimovaI…

Challenge entriesThe best entries and overall challenge winner 1 Abbas AlbadriAll of the start images were combined to create this random composition. The texture finds its way into the background, and the bike was stripped down and added to the foreground. 2 Bob ParsiDigital RealityI used all the elements provided as a starting point. I created this by using blending modes, blurs, effects, adjustment layers, brushes and much more. 3 Marcus JonesJelly-Baby MountainIt seemed a good time to go mountain biking so I created a jelly-baby mountain course. I combined layer masks, Dodge & Burn, cloning, liquifying and some filters – all done using Elements 12. 4 Trevor BuddCycle RaceThis image was made using just three of the photos supplied and no other images. Quite a…

Although Bratislava’s Radoxist is like many other design studios in having evolved out of one man’s freelance career, it is different in many ways. Its owner, Radoslav Žilinský, has always been very clear about the work the studio does: “We combine 3D graphics, photography and creative retouching” and are “aiming purely at visuals for advertising agencies and their clients.” He’s also not in a rush to grow the business out of all proportion. “I was never a person of great ambitions,” he says. “I always wanted to stay true to myself. So my studio grows with my personality.” And finally, the two-man core team exist in a co-working studio space in an old factory called Connect, which gives the opportunity to work with as many, or as few, freelancers as…
