Daily Inspirations no. 406

I feel like starting with illustrations today instead of photos. How do you guys like the artwork by Jennifer Healy called Daydream? I personally love it! It’s not the only artwork I love though. Just few spots lower down in the art digital art section there is a nice illustration by Alexandra Bezrukova. I’m a huge fan of fonts, so no wonder I’m always eager to check the typography section. From today’s typographic artworks I picked one piece that is a mixture of various typographic styles. Check it out … it’s called Advertising Design: 7-Eleven & Tullamore Dew. Make sure to check today’s ads as well … it’s definitelly worth it. Enjoy!

Daily Inspirations no. 405

You may remember photography by Mike Powell, it’s not the first time we featured his work here on Cruzine. Anyway, I like his photos with tiny bit of post production .) Check the runner … it’s the very first photo. Let’s move lower down though. From illustrations I would like to highlight Cover Trois Couleurs – FR by DAVID VICENTE as well as Abominable Snowman by Joel Hustak. These two are amazing. From art / digital art section I like the water painting called Water Spread by Sophie Song. If you guys could need a free postcard design, check our freebie section for Painted Postcards by FluxVFX. Enjoy!

Daily Inspirations no. 404

Today as every single day, we’re bringing you a mixture of various quality artworks for you to get inspired. I am sure you’re already curious what did out team put together. So, let’s take a closer look. My personal picks from the photography section are the very first two photos. I’m speaking about the baseball player and the calm full moon photo by Nicolai Perjesi. The section right below dedicated to illustrations brought us several cool artworks. The first one that deserves your attention is called Repressed by Jennifer Healy. I kind of like the Mermaid Pin-Up by Roberto Pena as well. The ones into traditional art such as paintings, should take a closer look at Stardust* by J. Luna. Web designers and programmers may look forward a nice jQuery banner / ad rotator by Coding Jack. Enjoy!

25+ Stunning Robot Illustrations

Everyone has their own definitions on what robots should be like. Children will always think that robots are tiny and cute, just like in Pixar movies. Men will always want Transformers which can switch from robot to car and vice versa at their command. On the other hand, ladies will always dream for their perfect man in the form of a robot.

The imaginary (and also, real) world of robots is huge. Characters like Wall-E, Transformers, Terminator, Bender and R2D2 are examples of robots which made it big in cinemas and TVs around the world. Everyone loves a robot which is cute like Wall-E, bad ass like Transformers and Terminator and also funny like Bender and R2D2 from the Star Wars series. These robots are the main attraction in the cinemas and have raked in billions of dollars for the film producers.

Robots in the real world are neither as advanced nor funny like those that we see on the screen. But needless to say, with the rapid advancement in science and technology, we will probably be seeing robots in our daily life sometime really soon. For example, Honda has been developing the ASIMO robot for many years. ASIMO which is an acronym for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility is a robot which can carry out basic functions like following voice commands, lifting up things and walking about on its own. ASIMO, one of the most renowned robots in the world has been brought on tour around the world, to the delight of many robot fanatics and fans. Honda is still working on ASIMO to improve and make it a more complete and humanoid machine.

Yeah Just There by Grant Orchard & Nic Gill

Check out this little one minute piece by Grant Orchard. It reminds me of the Geometric Porn app that I posted earlier this month. What makes this video great is the use of shapes and sounds to trick your mind and spark you imagination.


Daily Inspirations no. 403

There are exactly three photos I am gonna highlight today. We’ll have one beauty, one animal and one sport representative. Now buckle up and enjoy the ride! The same as yesterday we’re presenting an amazing horse photo by Andrey Vasilyev. The second featured photo is by Carsten Witte. If you remember we did an interview with this talented photographer few years back. Anyway, check his More Beauty photo … it’s totally worth it. And the sport representative mentioned is by Justin Bettman called Fall 2011. That’s something for all the skateboarders out there. Now let’s move one section down. My favorite from today’s illustrations is without a doubt Eternal Love by Dzeri29. If you were scrolling through our yesterday’s set, you noticed we featured Raphael Vicenzi. Let’s repeat that today .. make sure to check his 2012. You’ll find it in the art / digital art section at the very bottom. There are some nice ads available today as well. When I have to make my choice between the three featured, it would be the UniverCell: Messi by JWT, Bangalore, India. Love the soccer idea. If you’re waiting for today’s freebie only … there is a nice detailed 3d splash at the bottom. Enjoy!

Daily Inspirations no. 402

Seems we’ll be continuing with female beauty today as well. There are several amazing photos featuring hot women, but we’ll start with something different today if we may. What about beautiful horses? Andrey Vasilyev is quite talented … but you’ll figure that out yourself after checking his Horses photo. Seems more like a photo manipulation to me, but the end result is brilliant, so it doesn’t matter at all. My second pick has something common with beauty, but this photo is more conceptual or fashion related. I am speaking about the Follow the wind by Zlatimir Arakliev. Seems like the girl is representing hunting season with all the feathers and furs :). Anyway, let’s move on. I kind of like unusual style, and that’s exactly what I see in the 3d illustration called General Portfolio by Lee Hasler. I like it a lot. In the art / digital art section there is a nice ink illustration called Portraits in Ink and Tea by Carne Griffiths. I bet the author spent a great deal of time working on it. Can’t help it, but today I have to highlight something from the architecture / design section as well. Fans of interior design gonna agree that the Leafy Faucet by Andrea de Dominicis is worth highlighting. Amazing design. Love the sink too! That’s everything from me guys … now it’s up to you to get your mouse busy. Enjoy!
