Madrid-based origami master Gonzalo Garcia Calvo is able to transform a flat piece of paper into a lifelike three-dimensional intricate artwork. Calvo’s favorite subject matter seems to be expressive animals, though he has created many other objects as well, including an unbelievable violin.

“Dasavatar” is a series of artworks designed by Shajin Paikath (catch him on Behance) which shows the 10 avatars of Lord Vishnu – different incarnations that take the form of divine intervention provided by Vishnu during the various stages of human evolution. The Dasavatar (ten avatars) are meant to re-establish dharma (righteousness) and destroy tyranny and injustice on earth.
These illustrations of the 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu feature minimal, mindful design leading to splendid results! I am sharing some of the artworks here. (You can see the complete set on Behance.)
Here comes a pencil color artwork of “Sherlock” (the BBC TV series). I completed this one a while ago and it portrays our very beloved master of deduction, the world’s only “consulting detective”, Sherlock Holmes.
I just love the series and I believe Benedict Cumberbatch has played the character really well! Waiting to see some more of Sherlock’s brilliance in Season 4. 🙂
I have made a new watercolor painting – Abstract Lord Ganesha. The artwork features the Hindu deity of good fortune and success, Lord Ganesha, also known as Ganapati.
With the abstract Ganesha design in focus, it also has a lot of color splashes and some floral design made with a sketch pen.
“Ganesha (Sanskrit: गणेश, Gaṇeśa), also known as Ganapati and Vinayaka, is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in the Hindu pantheon.
Although he is known by many attributes, Ganesha’s elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom.”
I was going through some old drawings of mine and found these two illustrations I made a year ago – “The Lion” and “The Phoenix”. Both artworks are made entirely with color pencils and are a vibrant mix of colors with some abstract creativity.
The Lion is an amalgamation of bright, vivid designs resulting in a lion’s head gleaming with pride. The Phoenix illustration has an equally vivacious phoenix flapping its magnificent wings. One is the king of land and the other the prince of skies! Here are the artworks:
Katy Lipscomb is a freelance illustrator living in Georgia, USA. I featured her vivid and beautiful animal artworks in a previous post here. Her works illustrate various animal spirits – many of them forming beautiful pairs! That could be a dragon with a wolf, a couple of snakes, a lion with his cub and so on. She uses watercolors, color pencils and markers. You can find her work on DeviantArt and on Facebook.
Here are some artistic animal pairs by Katy Lipscomb…
Michael Zajkov is a Moscow-based artist who creates such hyper-realistic dolls that often they make people feel uncomfortable! Unlike other dolls out there, Michael Zajkov’s dolls are hand-sculpted and are a fine work of art. These dolls are made from a special type of modeling clay, with beautiful glass eyes, French mohair wigs and numerous joints in them.
Zajkov graduated from Kuban State University of Russia in 2009. From 2010 to 2013 he worked at a puppet theatre while also attending a graduate school. He made his first doll in 2010.
Michael shares the pictures of his startlingly lifelike dolls and sneak previews of their production process on his Instagram page.
Although they are quite eerie, I am sharing some pictures of his dolls here… Tell me in comments if you see any of them blinking! 🙂 Continue reading →
A while ago, I posted about the beautiful watercolor superhero paintings made by Clémentine – a French illustrator living in Sydney. In the same post, I said that “she paints a lot of things”, which is true indeed! The awesome designer paints much more than just superheroes and today I am sharing some more paintings by her.
