Sci-fi/Futuristic Digital Works & Resources

One place that designers tend to turn when they are looking for something of an inspirational recharge is to the worlds of science fiction and futuristic fantasy artwork. These rich, highly detailed works tend to be a fantastic testament to the creativity it takes to bring about something spectacular from nothing other than the idea of a world often so unlike our own. Much like designers do whenever we start a new project, the artworks from both the sci-fi and future fantasy realm tend to search the world around us for 'solutions' before they creatively reimagine it.

Today's post is to help get your inspirational wheels turning once again, while simultaneously providing you with some useful resources for taking your imagination into these waters for some projects of your own. Hopefully between the inspired showcase of work and the tutorials plus, you will find enough motivation to start providing some stunning insights into a future or sci-fi world born of your own imagination. Enjoy!
