Robots are a popular topic these days in the media, amongst politicians and in the tech world due to the fact robotics are being implemented in manufacturing and in ways are replacing traditional workforces, I wanted to create some art for future articles I may write related to the topic. Here are some samples below with gif images I created below. I am learning how to create animations and GIFs and it is a bit time consuming affair because you really have to scale certain things to make it look natural like a ball being thrown, for instance, or a hand moving back and forth.
Now here I added a pure vector robot to the scene or one not traced or created with a stylus and iPad, but entirely in Illustrator:
Here are the GIF animations I created:
Well, there ya go. I have many more variations of these robotic graphics I created and am still learning or working on creating good animations with such topics.
Here is another concept I came up using Illustrator. I brought the previous image created on iPad that was in a bitmap format (Jpeg actually) into my Macbook Air’s Illustrator and traced it then crystalized the background and added another bird object.
I think it is turning out interesting and I may update this blog post as I keep working on it in Illustrator or create a new one:
I enjoy this type of manipulation of bitmap images I created from scratch on iPad or ones I used bitmap effects with. Then inputting it into Illustrator for further work. I think I will continue to work on this concept and the lettering or logo ideas. I also like the idea of creating gaming concept art or cover art.
Speaking of which, my other site, Artistic Counterculture, already has a new logo I created from scratch on my iPad for it. Some of my new images without the text:
And here is another idea in progress from the same original bitmap work put into Illustrator and traced:
