Dundee based Scotish artist Sam Lyon creates incredible Jelly Gummies GIFs that are three-dimensional and full of texture. Every face-crease, every stomach bulge, every wobbly bit is so over-pronounced, and moves as if it’s full of goo.

He usually starts off with a photo of a dog or a toy or a persons face and work from there, sometimes it’s just a case of opening up a program and seeing what happens. He uses Sculptris and Blender to make everything. Sculptris is a free digital sculpting program that’s really easy to use with a graphics tablet and Blender is a great free modeling/ sculpting/ animation/ rendering program that he uses to add any final touches to the sculpted model and arrange the scene.

Tyler Spangler is a designer, visual artist and punk enthusiast from Huntington Beach, California. Through his work, he plays with color and animation, often interposing bright color with aged black and white photos— merging different worlds together and bringing old-fashioned two-dimension photography into the age of color and gifs. He describes his way of working as “a bit obsessive”, at one point creating as many as 2,000 pieces in one year and sharing them.
