With all the talk about cloud technology these days, it seemed like a no-brainer to create a set of stock illustrations featuring clouds with a variety of different objects. The trouble is that I’m not much of an organic 3d modeler – my style is a bit more on the chunky side of things, and I found it to be quite a challenge to recreate a useful cloud-looking object that could work in a variety of different poses and perspectives.
As you can see here, I settled on a simple icon-style design complete with an ultra-blingy chrome finish. And I’ll let you in on a little secret: that simplicity is what allows me to create so many illustrations from a single object. There’s no way I could be able to generate so many images if I only built objects that looked good from one angle!
You’ve seen this cloud from me before here and there (if you’ve been paying attention), and I even used a variation of it with Facebook logos a little over two years ago. But I thought it would be good to finally post the entire collection here on the blog for those who might have a use for them.
So here’s the full set:
I’ve also got a series of these metallic clouds over white backgrounds (and with different objects) that I’ll post soon. IMHO, the versions with the white backgrounds look better!
NorebboMy name is Scott, and I started in the design industry over 20 years ago with a bachelors degree in Industrial Design from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI. I have an extensive background in both 2D and 3D illustration, and these days, I spend a majority of my time creating aircraft templates and airliner art. I’m basically an airplane dork.
