Opps been a while...

This must be one of the longest spells I've gone without uploading anything. So I've been working a lot on the sort of additional details for the world. I think detail is important as it will make the series more beliveable. These are billboard designs. I still need to design billboards to mount them onto and I'm toying with the idea of having them on separate planets as well as (or instead of) on top of buildings. Its been fun coming up with futuristic product ideas as well as researching ad campaigns from the '50's. I think they have that sort of vintage look while seeming futuristic. I think the content juxtaposes with the style. Also, these are still fairly rough in places. I need clean vector style robots in two of them.

Power Planet

I have been working on some specialised individual planets that could provide services to the people in the spacey suburb. I have designs for a farming planet, a city planet, a park planet and this one. I had the idea that a whole planet could act as a generator. I liked the idea of using a circuit board design so it feels mechanical and the rusty metal texture helps this. The glow on the line makes the planet seem nuclear.
