This is an illustration of Radicon Robot, a vintage tin battery-operated toy robot made by Nomura in Japan, I think in the early sixties.
I created this piece on my iPad using a program called Procreate. Of all the digital art programs I’ve tried, it has the best interface for a smooth workflow. This piece was done using a regular stylus; as you can see, you can get pretty good results without a pressure-sensitive stylus.
The black line art was done with the pen tool, with the colored elements filled in using the paint features…round brush for flat color areas, and the damp brush used to create the pastel-like textures.
Stay tuned for more art!
