It’s not often that art and the world of football combine – the disciplines are wholly different and you’d never think to put the two together. This latest advertising campaign from Pepsi MAX however, proves that when the two collide, magical things can happen.
World-renowned photographer Danny Clinch captured six of the world’s leading football players – Leo Messi, Robin van Persie, Jack Wilshere, David Luiz, Sergio Agüero and Sergio Ramos – with six talented street artists transforming the images.
Spanish photographer Juan Sánchez Castillo transforms the face into the canvas with these brilliantly made-up landscapes for little people.
You can be incredibly creative when it comes to using little miniature figures, as we’ve witnessed efforts from artists Christopher Boffoli and Slinkachu. This series sees the turn of Spanish photographer Juan Sánchez Castillo.
Depicting models faces as the landscapes for these little people, using make-up to cleverly showcase the figurines working hard. Entitled ‘Making up’, the photography is a tribute to the art of make-up and imagination, proving a beautiful execution.
There’s figurines of painters, mowers and more, with the make-up providing an incredible attention to detail. The placement of the models fingers are also brilliantly impressive.
Nude is a work of fine art that has as its primary subject the unclothed human body, forming a subject genre of art, in the same way as landscapes and still life. While there is no single definition of fine art, there are certain generally accepted features of most definitions.
In the fine arts, the subject is not merely copied from nature, but transformed by the artist into an aesthetic object, usually without significant utilitarian, commercial (advertising & illustration), or purely decorative purposes. There is also a judgement of taste; the fine art nude being part of high culture rather than middle brow or low culture.
Modern artists have continued to explore classical themes, but also more abstract representations, and movement away from idealization to depict people more individually. Paintings become most exclusive and luxurious in art forms at world markets. Artists make plenty of benefits with this kind of precious beliefs and conceptions.
During most of the 20th century, the depiction of human beauty was of little interest to modernists, who were concerned instead with the creation of beauty through formal means. In the contemporary, or post-modern era, the nude may be seen as passé by many, however there are always artists that continue to find inspiration in the human form.
Just like architecture, papercraft is also a fusion of math and art.
In order to create a great piece in papercraft it requires careful planning, passion and an extreme amount of patience. With the rise of technology papercraft has renewed itself from a simple hobby to a new form.
Papercraft also known as paper model is an art form wherein people create three dimensional models of figures and objects using paper or card.
According to Papercraft Museum: “Papercraft is a hobby where computer images are printed, cut into pieces, and glued into a 3-dimensional model.”
Designs for papercraft are made by unfolding a 3D image using specialized programs, some designs are done by drawing based on video screen captures. Most people who does paper modelling make models of famous video game characters such as Minecraft’s Steve and Herobrine which they share in the Internet. In Japan, Papercraft is referred to as peparuka which gives homage to the ever growing Japanese papercrafting community. The term is also a name of a paper modelling software developed in Japan used to flatten 3D objects.
As time went by the application of papercraft slowly grew and evolved, from being used as art installation, modelling and decorative pieces it has now used as illustrations and design elements. Now, many designers and artists have used papercraft to give a fresh look for their editorial designs, posters, infographics and even with motion graphics. One amazing example of paper modelling is done by Lobulo Design that we have featured here sometime ago. Now, with all that said and done we are going to feature amazing designs that made use of papercraft or paper modelling whichever you prefer for your inspiration !
Papercraft is inexpensive and easy to learn. Many people have been doing it and with the help of Internet the proliferation of designs as well as software that makes the design has become easy, accessible and enjoyable for everyone. Internet forums dedicated to papercraft provides extensive and useful tips for beginners who are having a hard time working on their pieces.
What do you guys think? Think you can build a very elaborate papercraft?

Photo manipulation is the application of image editing techniques to photographs in order to create an illusion or deception through analog or digital means. Photo manipulation is an ever evolving collaboration between photography and graphic design. Combining certain elements to create a unique image, that can convince even the most experienced set of eyes, requires a very creative set of skills.
Because the manipulation of a photo gives a realistic view of an unreal picture, you should have an open mind when gathering ideas on how to get creative with your images. Photo manipulations are a great source for inspiration, generally because designers are able to express their creativity through various aspects of design.
In digital editing, photographs are usually taken with a digital camera and input directly into a computer. Transparencies, negatives or printed photographs may also be digitized using a scanner, or images may be obtained from stock photography databases. With the advent of computers, graphics tablets, and digital cameras, the term image editing encompasses everything that can be done to a photo, whether in adarkroom or on a computer.
Photo manipulation is often much more explicit than subtle alterations to color balance or contrast and may involve overlaying a head onto a different body or changing a sign’s text, for example. Image editing software can be used to apply effects and warp an image until the desired result is achieved. The resulting image may have little or no resemblance to the photo (or photos in the case of compositing) from which it originated. Today, photo manipulation is widely accepted as an art-form. Several of the following images contain illustrative elements, while others display a more realistic approach.
