Yarn Sculpture Sneakers Look Like Brain and Intestines?

Players and Poster image

These sneaker 3D renderings were a personal project ‘experimenting with colour, surface and intricate pattern making with yarns’; created by UK-based Illustrator, Chris LaBrooy (see previous).

SEE ALSO: Web and Social Media Sneakers.

As a side-note—I think the way that the ‘yarn’ is squashed together looks a bit like a cross-section of a brain, or even intestines! Or is it just me? In any case, these designs are visually-stunning, don’t you agree? Check out the gallery below, along with a couple of examples of how they were created in 3D…

Freaky Human Typeface by JC Debroize

This is the typeface design padded out with human flesh

French digital artist, JC Debroize, has created these freaky-looking set of typographic letters that imitate human faces. The “Human Typeface” spells out ‘Kerozen’ (above), which is the name of JC’s design studio.

I think these letters are simply stunning, and it must have taken JC a long time to get right! Each typographic character features a prominent eyeball, along with hair, wrinkles and even expertly-crafted stubble! Also, check out the additional project of JC that I featured at the end of the post: Cockroach Morning…

Smiling Eggs Food Vector Illustrations by Jonathan Ball

This image shows title text for the post

Check out these funky, pun and original food vector illustrations by the talented, Jonathan Ball of PokedStudio. If you are unsure as to what vector illustrations are, well, they’re designs that are made up of mathematical parts and formula and created in computer programs such as Adobe Illustrator. This means that the illustrations can be blown up to massive sizes or decreased in size without any loss of quality.

So, for illustrative work these food vectors display quite a lot of detail — and a lot of work has gone into each and every one. See the amount of detail in the freaky looking spaghetti and meatballs dish illustration at the end, for example! For more quality work like this, head over to Jonathan’s profile to see more of his other projects.

The Comparison of Science Fiction Spaceships

Science Fiction Spaceships image

This intriguing image [above] was created by Deviant Art user, DirkLoechel. It shows many science fiction spaceships next to each other, while keeping their original size-ratio and form factors. As a Star Trek fan (no, it’s no secret, hehe!) I found it interesting how small the Enterprise was compared to all the other space craft. You can see it on the mid-right of the image, which I have enlarged below:

Animal-Themed Illustration Inspiration by Andreas Preis

watch owl image

These Animal-themed Pencil and Fineliner Illustrations by Andreas Preis are absolutely stunning, I think you’ll agree! I love the sheer originality, use of colour and combinations of sketching with spectacular themes. See more from this set over on Andreas profile page.

About these designs: Personal Project – Printable Size about 80 x 80 cm, 300 dpi. Because a lot of people asked: No, I didn’t use illustrator for this. There are some minor vector graphics which I made in Photoshop. At least 95% of what you see here is done by hand with pencils and fineliners. Colors and structures were added in Photoshop afterwards.
