META - UI Concepts

I had the opportunity to help in development of applications concept art and user interface components of a very promising product - META Augmented Reality 3D Glasses. They are receiving lot of attention at the moment and I believe the product will revolutionize the virtual reality standards. Please check out their presentation here -

Creation of the artwork attached is based on description of apps only. Specific situations photography is used as background combined it with 3d elements prepared in 3d Max. Photoshop treatment followed that step which included design of UI , superimposing content elements displayed within the glasses as well as special lighting effects of the interface. List of 'Killer Apps' can be found here together with the public applications popularity poll:

In total there were 15 pieces produced.

Life drawing at No Vacancy Gallery

Recently we were introduced to a cool group of enthusiastic artists who every week organize life drawing sessions at No Vacancy Gallery
We loved it and will try to join as much as we can. Here are the results of the first session.
Some poses would take only 30 seconds some 2-3 minutes and the last few 15 min each - the attached examples are from 15 min exercises where there was just enough time to include some lighting information.
