Borg Turkey by TimothyB Borg Turkey by TimothyB
I did this illustration for work to go with a story on how many times turkeys come into contact with computers until they end up in your home for cooking. Basically things tracking systems etc. So showing a Borg Turkey got the idea across.

I hope I put this in the right category. This was done 95% in Illustrator CS. The last 5% was the texture on the metal done in Photoshop, the laser, and some color adjusting for final touches. It's hard to place this kind of work, as with todays Illustrator (Vector base program), you can end up with something that doesn't look like vectors, but still is scalable to any size (at least if you have the memory).

This was also the first time I used the 3D tool in Illustrator, which was to create the sections of the neck, some rings, feet for examples. But it's basically just revolve and extrude options, very limited. Just to note, the 3D effect is done live, so at anytime you can modify the vector shape it's using. Then if you need to you can expand it's appearance to make it permanent, made up of hundreds of vectors.
