Alexis Marcou Designs

This website that I found has different blogs on them. I found this particular one that I found very interesting. Alexis Marcou drew these images using graphite pencils. The images look so realistic and they are very unique. I love the ones with the little color in them, which little touch of color really makes them stand out. The shading and line techniques is amazing. He has every little detail in every image, which is the reason why these images are so awesome. These are just a couple of his drawings.

He also has his own website where you can look at more of his drawings and even buy them. Surprisingly, you can purchase the drawings for cheap. Alexis even have different merchandise with his drawings on it like iPod, iPad, and iPhone cases. It’s lots of other merchandise you can purchase. I think everyone should check this website out. He has worked with lots of clients such as HP, Nike, Cisco, and many more.

Alexis also has a blog where you can follow him and his artwork. It shows you his projects that he done and it shows you the projects that he’s in the process of working on. He shows you his step-by-step process and tells you when to expect the project to be done.

3D Typography Designs

Once again I am doing another blog on typography. These designs really caught my attention due to the fact that they pop out, literally. These designs have really inspired in a way to try and do some typography like this. It looks easy, but I know its most likely difficult to do an it accumulates lots of time. They artists that created these 3D designs have a very creative mind. I absolutely love all of the details in the designs. I believe that everyone should check this website out and look at these wonderful pieces of artwork.

I also found a tutorial on YouTube that shows you how to make 3D gold typography. It takes you step by step on how to do the whole thing. The design is simple, but the message is very inspirational. It also has some very good details and effects in the design. I thought this was a pretty cool tutorial and I hope everyone else think it is too.

Another website that I found which is basically another tutorial. You just scroll down the page and it tells you step by step on how to do the design. I found this design interesting because it has that dark type affect to it. It has that gloomy type of look to it also. I think you all should check out the design and you will also find this design inspirational.

Typography

Every since I learned about typography I thought it was awesome because some of the cool things that you can do with it. I was browsing typography and ran across some pretty cool images. These images are very inspirational to people that design and like to do things with text. It gives you ideas for projects or even for fun. I love the designs especially the superman, hulk, and Bruce Lee ones. However, all of the designs are great and unique in their own way. The designers put a lot of hard work, dedication, skill, and creativity into these designs. All the designs have all kinds of fonts that are in all kinds of different shapes, forms, and sizes.

Realism Fine Art

For my first blog I am going to talk about realism paintings. I love realism art more than I love any other type of art. I love the way the artist can make paintings of objects that look like they are really sitting there. It doesn’t even look like a painting it looks like a picture that was taken. I found a painting that really stood out to me. It has some beautiful colors and some very interesting details. The objects have just the right texture type look on them when you look at them and then look at the objects in real life.

That is the link to the painting and you can also look at some of the other beautiful realism paintings on the website.

I like the painting because of the plums and cherries. The bright red and shiny coat really popped out in the painting and really caught my eye when I was looking at the images. I like the texture of the sheet in the background and the way the wine look like it’s really sitting in the wine glass. It looks like the objects are sitting on top of a glass table because you can see the shadow through the glass.
