Switzerland / Russia –
I don’t like to throw the word “love” around. But I LOVE this artist’s work.
LimKis has a unique style that feels more like painting than vector illustration. Her technique pushes the boundaries of Adobe Illustrator by using brushes and transparencies in ways that emulate water color and acrylic works.
We were introduced to her work earlier this year and found a great deal of depth in her illustrations. At 22, she has shown a real sense of mastery with the software.
Here are a few words from the artist:
“My art, my work is everything to me.
I like to think through the eyes of art, to plunge into color combinations.
I believe if a person isn’t developing, he’s slipping. It’s not enough just to keep at a high level, one needs to develop constantly, to work hard. That’s why there’s nothing better than a challenging work, which makes you exceed yourself.
Everything is for the better. Everything that happens to a person is for the better. I think the world likes us, but it doesn’t spoil us. It trains a person and polishes his character.
In short: a romantic person with somewhat philosophical views. Optimist.?Actually, that’s all I can say about myself.?I would like to avoid either praising myself, or criticizing.
I do commissions – various design works and illustrations, and I accept commissions though the Internet.”
Take a closer look at her gallery.
Oleg Rogoznev is a Russian artist with a really impressive craft when it comes to design of realistic vector images. His work takes on hyperreal qualities by focusing on extreme detail (see The Flower below, at the left hand side). In the Still life (below right) he uses subjective lighting. In the Large eye he captures realistic detail, while allowing some of hair and skin elements to show through as simplified vectors. You can visit his portfolio for further works.

Russia –Limkis is female graphic designer with an incredible illustrator technique. Her vector creations use several transparency layers to create a “painted” look. Her creations are imaginative and fantastic. Here are a few of our favs, but you can also see additional works in a slideshow available in a link at the bottom of this post.
