Movie robots Icons

Movie robots Icons - student project

Decided to base my Illustrated Icons on Robots from some of my favorite movies! Starting with some quick rough sketches of some ideas I had on paper, giving a rough idea for shading for later when I get to Illustrating it on the computer.

My first main Idea focused on the robots in the movie Oblivion, I love their simplistic shape and how threatening they feel. I decided to go with a red, blue, white, and purple colour scheme; I believe it creates a nice cohesive look to each Icon.

The second Icon focuses on the giant robot from The Iron Giant, overall I very happy with this design especially with how the shading defines the giant and the use of the colour red really makes him stand out in the foreground.

Lastly I wanted to go for a simplistic friendly robot, so I decided to focus the last Icon on Eve from the movie Wall-E. Eve is made up of some very simple shapes, so shading was key in building her character, and I decided to focus on the scene in the movie where she picks up a light bulb and is intrigued by it.

Had a lot of fun with this class, it's a great exercise in Adobe Illustrator if your stuck for things to draw!
