In our recent post showcasing a game-related video using a combination of our previous design concepts with new pixel art style of graphics, we came up with some interesting concepts we are further working on.
For instance, you may have noticed a 3D shape showcasing the Space Face as we like to call it that we created embedded on a wall. We did this using an Illustration technique called '3D Extrude and Bevel' that can be found in the Effect>3D> menu.
This was the piece we created that gave the face a 3D embedded look on a wall of sorts:
If you follow the news section of the site, you may have noticed we recently posted a gaming-inspired trailer (2 versions) called A Space Game Concept. We also mentioned in the news section coverage that we will follow this up with a blog post detailing the process and showcasing more of the artwork and graphic design that went into it and this includes samples that did not make the cut in the videos.
The trailer and overall idea behind it was inspired partly by a retro PC game's introduction, Black Moon Chronicles, which you can watch here. Here are the two versions of the trailer we created - with the top one below being more recent and in-depth:
You may recall that in my last blog post I mentioned that I created more pixel artwork out of some of the previous designs. Here was that design although this one had some non pixel-art elements added in and a bit of a metallic filter:
I have recently started to play around with an old graphic design image I created that originally started out from a single photo at a nightclub. This was a techno nightclub called Luzztro and here is the original photo I took of a lazer light display showing a face with moving imagery on a wall:
(I posted this update (although not all of the images I created) on my personal page as well in case you want to check it out you can here.)
A while back, I had created a robot in Illustrator within the theme of Artificial Intelligence or AI. I also used a photograph I image traced within Illustrator for the background as well as various brush strokes. You can see the results below (the other variant was a Bitcoin-themed graphic I also created in Illustrator).
I was browsing through the Illustrations section of the site and came upon the bird image on top, which you can see here:
I originally created this image all using an iPad, a stylus and a little illustration app called Procreate. Note, I used one of the older styluses as I did not own an iPad Pro or one capable of supporting the official Apple Pen.
Cloud computing is a term that refers to today as storage or data and in the cases of virtualization even entire operating systems being accessed remotely on servers usually hosted in a data center somewhere away from where you are accessing this information.
Apple has iCloud, for example, while Google and Microsoft have their own cloud services in the forms of Google Cloud and Microsoft ONeDrive. There are also a wide range of public cloud storage companies that offer secure cloud storage and various options for accessing it remotely, such as Dropbox, Box.net, pCloud, Sync.com and many others.
Check out these Forbes Articles as all the visual imagery or graphic design is done by us and almost all of it done completely from scratch. The data piece started out as a screenshot from someone who took of a concept of data on a computer screen, but even that has been modified so heavily it is almost recognizable. The rest are completely from scratch.
I have recently been working on doing concept work related to data flow, or the idea of a data breach. So this is some of the fun and abstract concepts I came up with. Some of these were used in this article on Forbes.
Lately I have been working on learning some pixel art or pixel graphics. I have been doing this on an iPad app after uploading photos to it and later fixing the colors and overall look up with my own pixel dots I add in.
I actually published an article on Forbes lately with all of the graphic design and writing being my own and edited entirely by me. The topic was AI and natural language processing focusing on a company called OpenAI's efforts. You can read it here. The art below is my further implementations of what I added to the article originally and have been modifying since.
Here is my Metroid implementations of a piece I previously hand drew with pastels and I ran it through the pixel maker app and later back into Illustrator for the Mosaics effect.
