Anton Burmistrov shared a beautiful branding and illustration work for the redesign of the Rudo and Tecnico tequila labels. Tequilas Rudo and Tecnico are inspired by Lucha Libre, an extremely popular Mexican style of professional wrestling, and its rich cultural tradition.

Beneath the Surface — 3D Experiments in Houdini

Ian Frederick shared a 3D project that is an experimental art piece created as a method for him to learn Houdini, specifically its cloth and soft body system called Vellum. “It started out as just seeing if I could model a good looking octopus tentacle. Then it became “what if the tentacle was dynamic and floppy?” then “what if there were like 1000 of them?” from there I just kept adding scenes, experimenting with having the tentacles and cloth interacting and colliding with things until I came up with this strange and abstract final product.” Ian also really loves a song by Levitate. (Huge thank you to him for giving the permission to use it!)  Continue reading
