Time-lapse Images of Nude Dancers Created with 10,000 Individual Photographs

The abstract images remind me of Japanese ink wash painting, as if the figures were cread by the stroke of a thick brush, which is not unsuprising considering Maruyama’s previous work with water sculptures. Of the photos Shin says: I tried to capture the beauty of both the human body’s figure and its motion. The figure in the image, which is formed into something similar to a sculpture, is created by combining 10,000 individual photographs of a dancer. By putting together uninterrupted individual moments, the resulting image as a whole will appear to be something different from what actually exists.

Two of cinema's finest, Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson, took on the indelible role of the Joker in the long-running Batman film series.

How Creepy Is This Image of Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson's Jokers Together?

Both men had a unique and maniacal take on the comic book character — a master supervillain with a warped sense of humor and an unnerving level of intelligence to pull off his deadly pranks. Nicholson's portrayal revealed a charismatic lunatic perfectly suited for Tim Burton's world, and Ledger became "an absolute psychopath," reinvigorating the character, as well as our awe and appreciation for all-encompassing roles and movie baddies. A few years ago, company Hot Toys created an eerily realistic figure of both Nicholson and Ledger's Jokers — impeccably detailed right down to the skin texture, facial expressions, advanced articulation, and awesome array of props and interchangeable features.

In other words, both are downright creepy and incredibly badass. Teen Girl Shoots Beautiful and Creative Portraits of Her Pet Dogs. If you’re a dog lover, you’ve got to check out the photography of 17-year-old photographer Jessica Trinh.

BACK TO THE FUTURE : Irina Werning

I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.. Now its time for KOREA, TAIWAN AND TOKYO.

With an art career spanning more than three decades, Judith Ann Braun has tested the limits of her artistic musculature. She began as a self-described “realistic figure painter,” and worked through the struggles common to anyone who endeavors upon an artistic pursuit, that of searching for one’s own voice in the chosen medium. Fast forward to the 21st century where the evolution of Braun’s work has brought us to the Fingerings series, a collection of charcoal dust landscapes and abstracts “painted” using not brushes but her fingertips. Braun has a specific interest in symmetry, as evidenced by the patterns she follows in a number of the Fingerings pieces as well as work in the Symmetrical Procedures collection.

Her fingerprints are obvious up close in some of the paintings, though a step back and the grandeur of Braun’s imagination sprawls into a landscape of soft hills, overhanging trees, delicate florals, and a reflective waterway.

Iron Man 3: New IMAX Poster Is Crowded. Iron Man 3 has been churning out posters quite heavily and the trend does not appear to be stopping anytime soon with the release of this new character-packed poster promoting the film's IMAX release. Does it preview any new characters? Nope. Does it give us a glimpse of any new scenes? Nope. Does it provide any new insight into the film itself? Indeed, all the side players (that we know of, thus far) are present in the background: Don Cheadle in his Iron Patriot armor, Guy Pearce as sinister spray-tanned scientist, Aldrich Killian, Sir Ben Kingsley decked-out for his auspiciously antagonistic turn as signature baddie, The Mandarin, a few strays from Tony's voluminous Iron Army, and someone who I'm guessing is the one and only Helicopter Man!

An artist’s eye always sees things, as humble as a pencil, in a much different way than the others. While pencil is a mere writing and drawing instrument for most of us, artists such as Dalton Ghetti use them to create wonderful pieces of complex art for the rest of us to admire. Another artist, specializing in miniature artworks, is a Budapest-based artist and sculptor known by the name of Cerkahegyzo.

The sculptor, whose tools are nothing more than small carving tools, fine blades, needles, sandpaper and files, uses the wood and lead of a pencil as the base and body of the sculptures. Paying homage to Ghetti, the artist has also replicated his sculpture of heart, screw and linked chains. Other than this, the artist has also managed to pull off some impossible-looking pencil art sculptures.
