Rides Of The Wild — Animal Inspired Car Renderings

A very creative series, the Rides of the Wild brings a touch of animals to classic cars. The artist’s idea is to go beyond renders and encourage the imagination of the viewer. Something that can hold interest of a viewer, rather than be a comment in passing. Swiss artist Frédéric Müller matches animals to classic cars.

NASA makes beautiful travel posters for exoplanets

Travel posters are so retro, but also so very futuristic when NASA makes some of them, for exoplanets. The freshly released set includes three exoplanets, the Kepler-186f, HD 40307g, and the Kepler-16b. Of the set, Kepler-186f is remarkable because it falls within the habitable zone of its star, which is redder and cooler than our sun. Speaking of cool, the Kepler-16b is located in a binary star system, where you could see two suns in the sky at once, much like Tattooine in Star Wars. Enjoy these posters here, or if you would like one for your room, head on to the NASA website to download (much) higher resolution versions that would be totally awesome as posters.

We Are Thankful 8-Bit Character Art Does Not Show Details

People have had their fair share of gripe about the obvious lack of details in the good old 8-bit video games. Technology wasn’t mature enough for detailed appearances, and videogame artists and developers made best use of the palette available to them. With better technology, came around a different, more detailed look of the characters. But imagine if the original 8-bit art was just a boxy representation of what those characters actually looked like.
