The goal of this project was to create a prototype invention of something that does not exist. It is a photo-realistic rendering of a unique object using Adobe Illustrator. I chose to create something that was a humorous, retro-futuristic combination of modern and antique...a satellite phonograph!
This was a great workout that dove deep into the vector-based software of Adobe Illustrator. It captures a fantastical object in accurate two-point perspective, illuminated by a primary light source.
Directly below the satellite phonograph is a line drawing of an airplane that expresses tone, shadow, texture, a light source and composition using only black and white. It was also created entirely in Adobe Illustrator. The plane is the Lockheed Model 10 Electra, similar to that flown by Amelia Earhart. It is the first in a series of vintage airplane illustrations that I intend to create.
