Nuwan (AKA BlackNull) combined his amazing talent for digital illustration with a multitude of photos and PixelSquid 3D objects from our subscription service Envato Elements. Not only is the finished piece an impeccable specimen of Photoshop artwork, we were also treated to a stunning 17-minute time lapse showing how the entire masterpiece was created.

See how the artwork unfolds from beginning to end via the video below.

Amazing work, Nuwan, we were blown away with your digital craftsmanship!


Best Submission Using the Most Free Files ($500)

Love, Dream, Create by FoxyPix

Our next winner is VideoHive author Agnia Temchurina, also known as FoxyPix. What we loved about this entry was the combination of using video creatively to tell a story and to tie in an emotional element using music.

Each image has been subtly animated with what’s known as an After Effects photo animator. There are numerous animator project files on VideoHive which can help you achieve this effect. The addition of text using the free Bird House Script font we gave away and creative transitioning between each slide  helps create an imaginative and engrossing visual.

What a fitting way to celebrate our Elements contest with “Love, Dream, Create”. We certainly won’t stop dreaming about everything we can possibly create with an Elements subscription! Superb work, Agnia!


Best Submission from an Elements Subscriber ($500)

Discworld by blerc

A standing ovation please for Greek GraphicRiver author Athanasios Paschalides (AKA blerc) for his incredible concept and execution he entitled, “Discworld”.

Influenced by Terry Pratchett’s series of books from the same name, “Discworld” takes a high volume of Envato Elements assets and manipulates them in a unique and magical fashion. Here’s  Athanasios to describe how he came up with the genius concept:

“By the minute I saw the turtle and elephant photo files, the first image that came to my mind was the great artwork behind Terry Pratchett’s novels. It was a very difficult project, but it was really challenging to combine all the photos together and finally illustrate and color the final composition.”
