The extraordinary, swirling multicoloured portraits of Spanish illustrator Martin Sati: facial contours and reflected light rendered with digital ‘material’ which, sez he:
…is like semi-liquid and is difficult to model but at the same time is very rich in movement and liveliness… I work with this material, which I usually call ‘Silicone Pie,’ as an artisan works with ceramics. I am modelling the colours with lines of movement until I achieve an optimal level of detail.

Random geometric patterns created by Greek visual designer Dimitris Ladopoulos.
Ladopoulos applies an algorithm within the 3D animation program Houdini, which splits rectangles vertically, then horizontally, forming gilded patterns that resemble circuit boards and abstract architectural landscapes. Sez he:
“The number of splits is randomly selected from a given max. The outcome is fed to the loop, again and again, depending on the number of user defined iterations. A seed value and slight alterations of the algorithm produce a variety of results.
