trending images Check out some of the most popular artwork that’s been rocking the internet over the last few weeks, and take inspiration from what’s currently trending There’s nothing more inspiring than surfing the internet and seeing what other artists are creating, and we encourage you to do so. Here are some of our favourite pictures that caught our attention recently, from some of the world’s most exciting artists and designers. This particular image has been included in Behance’s Illustration showcase online, and we love the block colour and use of blur. Jenny shows here that there’s more to digital art than just the Brush Tool.
Starting with a very quick sketch, I selected shapes with the Lasso Tool and filled in some rough blocks of colour and lighting. Then I painted the details, using Colour Dodge to highlight the lighting.

I created the 3D render, then used Photoshop to create the UV textures for the character and other elements of the scene. I use Photoshop for post-production, for better control and blending in the background to give more depth.

This work is dedicated to David Bowie, one of my favourite musicians. Inspired by his song Starman, I tried to make an image with a touch of a galaxy that combines several elements of lines, colours and dimensions, of course using standard tools from Photoshop.
Novans is an example to any Photoshop beginner on how you can push software further: he’s even been featured by Behance’s Photoshop gallery. We love the colour and invention in this piece.
Photoshop is a great tool for so many creatives: even 3D artists who use it to get the best out of their renders. Nico has over 3,000 followers on Behance, which is testament to the detail he uses in his work.
