20 Stunning Animal Illustrations

It could be considered that we are presently in the ‘Digital Art Movement’, but really we are at the start of it, and it is probably a trend that will continue for a very long time.

It is hard to believe that digital illustrations will improve upon what they are today, but with painting software moving forward in leaps and bounds, and artists now studying digital art as a stand-alone art form, we have to consider that in the future there will be amazing improvements.

This showcase features some outstandingly talented digital artists and their illustrations of animals. These images range from photo-realistic to cartoon-style and everything in between.

20 Beautiful Examples of Sunrise Photography

Sunrise, also referred to as dawn or daybreak, are in fact different times of the day. According to Wikipedia sunrise is the instant at which the upper edge of the sun appears above the horizon in the east, and dawn is the time when the sky begins to lighten, but before the sun actually appears, and daybreak can apply to either sunrise or dawn.

Sunset colours are usually more brilliant than sunrise colours, however, this showcase features some very vivid sunrise colours, along with the paler colours usually associated with colder weather.

20 Outstanding Examples of Vector Art

Vector art is defined in a large part by the software the art was created with, for instance, Illustrator and Corel Draw.

Trying to find a clear definition of vector art, the best I came across was from wisegeek.com, and here is an extract from their definition:

“The images in vector art are basic and simplistic, consisting of lines, points, polygons, and curves. Vector art is akin to the type of imaging typically used to create cartoon images found in comic strips. In addition, vector art is typically used to create business logos and signs, making them easy for the brain to remember.”

Vector art, in recent years, has come along in leaps and bounds, as is proved by this collection of 20 examples created by extremely talented artists.
