Conceptual artist and illustrator Gediminas Pranckevicius posesses an imagination to covet. While most of his digital painting is centered around character design, his larger landscapes seen here are rich in detail, creating impossible but ingenious juxtapositions of water, land, and haphazard architecture.

Believe it or not, the biggest gaming event in the world happened this week. But San Francisco didn't see any more traffic than usual and New York barely saw an extra gamer enter the city -- no, the biggest event in the world was in GamesCom in Germany.

Automata Trailer Shows Off A Robot Action Movie That Gets Robots Right

Automata Trailer Shows Off A Robot Action Movie That Gets Robots Right | Machinimania | Scoop.it
We'll be honest, we did not know much about Antonio Banderas and Gabe Ibáñez's Automata, but this trailer has us very, very excited about this robot movie. From what we can tell, Automata appears to be twisting around Asimov's laws of robitcs, which is great. Also, we're really happy to see that the robots look like actual robots. FINALLY.
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Fast forward fifty years into the future, planet earth is in the midst of gradual desertification. Mankind struggles to survive as the environment deteriorates and the slow regression of the human race begins in AUTÓMATA. On the brink of life and the reality of death, technology combats the prevailing uncertainty and fear with the creation of the first quantum android, the Automata Pilgrim 7000. Designed to bring support to society's plight, man and robot reveal what it means to co-exist in a culture defined by human nature.

The Mystery Behind Marc Giai-Miniet’s Cinematic Dioramas

The Mystery Behind Marc Giai-Miniet’s Cinematic Dioramas | Machinimania | Scoop.it

French artist Marc Giai-Miniet has been creating for over 50 years, and over that time has accumulated a variety of titles from hobbyist, painter, printmaker, draftsman, and a “pipe puller” of symbols. His never-ending large scale dioramas which he calls “boxes” are almost Escher like. They take us through theatrical stages of industrial rooms; dusty libraries, attics, and winding, nonsensical machinery. These creepy post-disastrous events or crime scenes are beautiful in their destruction, similar to Lori Nix (covered here

NIGHTCRAWLER is a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling -- where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story.
