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.
I have recently published a post on Forbes -- where I am currently a contributor for related to topics of innovation and technology. You can read the article here and it is titled 'Robotic Process Automation Aims To Shake Up Various Industries.'
The theme of the post was robotics, automation and machine learning. Thus I decided to create my own graphics for the article and other similar content in the future. The images inside the article including the main feature image and the two others within the text were all done by me. I think that this is a great idea of using multimedia journalism to the fullest: combining graphics with text and video for articles, web content, blogs, web design and other things I enjoy doing.
I created these pieces in Illustrator, but the underlying layer or images of the robots battling I created all using a stylus, iPad and Procreate (some effects by using ArtStudio HD as well). Here are the three samples included in the article and below are many other samples including GIFs that I created using my work and GIF image creation software.
Below are some other interpretations of this work as I have many other variations than those I included in the article.
You can see more interpretations and the whole process of how the images evolved through added layers, effects, transitions and both Illustrator and raster software on my personal blog. Below, are some GIF animations I created using these assets.
If you are interested in using any of these assets or other interpretations of them, let us know here through the contact form or firstname.lastname@example.org Alternatively, if you are interested in us creating animations for you or other graphic design with a similar or different theme, do not hesitate to drop us a line. I also have the original .ai vector samples saved and some of them as PDFs as well. See sample below:
