Remember the post about digital painting? This post is about, in my humble opinion, one of the most talented digital painters in the world. I'm talking about Dan Luvisi, a digital concept artist working in the film, video game and comic book industry. You're about to see artwork done by human hands you never thought would be even possible.
The new PS3 Ad Campaign: "This is Living" is all about colors. A perfect example where the right colors set off the right mood immediately. This ad campaign from PlayStation is creative and brilliant all on its own. At first sight these artwork doesn't seem to be a gaming console ads, but it’s clear the direction Sony is taking with these ads; they want to attract individuals in their mid 20’s to early 30’s.
This is quick and easy to follow tutorial. A basic knowledge about using Pen tool is important since I won't explain the detail about it in this tut. This tutorial was inspired by classic Japanese cartoon movie I used to watch when I was a kid. Enjoy.
Nina Chakrabarti was born and spent her early years in Calcutta, India. As a teen she moved to the UK and studied illustration at Central St. Martins and later at The Royal College of Art. Today, Chakrabarti lives and works in London and is still very passionate about drawing and doodling. Nina’s working methods are organic and experimental; she uses pencils, ink, felt tips, biros and many mediums and techniques, including digital, to produce a broad range of work.
I know this incredible simple technique which produces such a nice outcome, that may come very handy to a lot of beginner designers. You can barely call it a tutorial, but it's weird that some designers haven't discovered this simple yet very effective quick method which can add an extra beautiful touch to your work.

Is fashion art? As a former fashion designer I would tell you “yes – I truly believe fashion is art”. The same amount of artistic expression can go into a fashion silhouette as into a painting. An exquisite dress can look as beautiful as a sculpture; or as experimental as an artist’s sketch. A good fashion shop can be as exciting and relevant as an art gallery. Of course clothes are designed to be practical, and obviously not to go on a wall or be put behind glass. But you could easily state that some of today’s fashion collections are more artistic than the conceptual art trash you sometimes find in museums or art galleries. Fashion can tell you a lot about people and the times they live(d) in. By reflecting changes in popular culture, fashion fulfills another traditional function of art. Fashion covers many different domains and techniques of "arts" such as design, music, theatre and photography.
