Spring is here and it’s getting much warmer outside. Soon people will be able to lay back on the grass, look at the clouds floating by, and wonder what thing the clouds remind them of. A ship? A cat? A tentacle monster? Anything goes. But what should you do when you see nothing? Unleash your creativity in Photoshop, of course.
Designcrowd decided to do a contest for their members called ‘In The Clouds’ where people of all skills and experiences can participate and show us what they would like to see in the clouds. From a kangaroo to a dragon fighting a knight on horseback, their creativity knows no bounds. Check out the list below and vote for your favorite ones!
I wanted to start a comic in 2020 that would help to make people smile. After chewing over ideas, I settled on a comic about my two rescue dogs. After a few more months of chewing over designs and ideas, I finally got started in December after being quarantined for covid. It took a bit longer for me to get my footing, but I think I finally got myself situated.
Each comic is drawn on paper, inked, then imported into Photoshop for cleanup and coloring. All of the events are inspired by the pups, with me recently starting to add photos at the end of the comics to show their antics.
As sad as it may sound, some of our most beloved celebrities left this world too soon, and we never got the chance to see how they would look like today. However, one man was tired of guessing and decided to use the power of A.I. to see how a handful of celebrities might have looked like if they were still alive today.
I’ve been interested in both abstract generative art and fractals for a while, so I started combining them into these images. I use a fractal generator, photoshop, and some creation websites to generate fully unique 3D abstract art.
All of the cartoon characters down below are very well known. Maybe you didn’t watch their cartoons, but you’ve definitely seen them. What you haven’t seen, however, are their skeletons. And we don’t mean the metaphorical skeletons in the closet, but the literal anatomical skeletons of their bodies.
Feeling bored and a bit antsy for a creative outlet, I decided to play around with photographing water and food coloring. I grabbed a couple of old glass bottles I had laying around and I slowly dropped in blue and green food coloring and contorted myself into all different angles to get the shot I wanted. No after-effects or Photoshop or anything of that kind was used on these photos. They are blurry but I think that adds to their ethereal nature. I see different things each time I look at the photos. There is no right way up to view them. I like to make up stories about what is captured through the “keyhole” into these strange, mystical, eerie, dreamlike worlds. It’s a bit like peering into an alternate reality underwater with all manner of creature and inexplicable objects that cannot be described and should not exist. There are haunting things lurking in the shadows there, too, if you want to see them. It’s a bit like looking into a pond made of mood-ring glass, reflecting back whatever you bring to it. I know I am making them sound much more magnanimous than what they are, and I am being super corny, but I truly enjoyed the process and was quite intrigued with the outcome. I hope you will like them too. I’d be very interested to hear what others see (if anything) and how you interpret them. Thank you for viewing these!
The most iconic paintings throughout history are still carrying important messages through the art of today’s artists. An Italian digital artist, known on social media as CRUDEOIL 2.0, gave old paintings a new life as social satire. The 24-year-old artist reimagined famous classical paintings in the modern world, with a highlight on technology and social media, to poke fun at what’s wrong with our world. CRUDEOIL 2.0 has a degree in Fashion Design, but in parallel to the world of fashion, he is “following an artistic path by using software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects for the animation of images.”
It is nice to let your imagination loose on your visits to museums packed with ancient sculptures depicting noble people and historic figures. In fact, you can go crazy letting your imagination loose fantasizing about what they actually looked like. History buffs can rejoice now as, thanks to modern technology and the skillful artist Haroun Bin, you can marvel at recreated Roman emperors from Augustus to Flavius Arcadius.
You can check out how incredibly realistic the emperors look, to the point of resembling well-known people, read what the artist had to share with Bored Panda about his project, and of course vote for your favourites and leave comments below.
My name is Yahav Draizin, and I work in advertising. I’m constantly looking for inspiration. Using my phone, I match images from popular culture and beyond to places, people, and objects to bring them to life, but with a fun twist. All photos are taken in real locations using two smartphones and no Photoshop or editing.
Photography has been my hobby since I was a little boy. I love it because it allows me to be creative and explore different angles and different stories that others don’t always see.
