Classic Mac Icon(s) AD

Recommended Posts

This doesn't count as drawing as it's so easy and just a bit of fun¬†ūüėČI keep meaning to do some classic mac icons but updated¬†however I'm¬†not sure what style to do them. Coloured versions of the originals or more fancy (anti-aliased) /skeuomorphic.

Today I was messing around with just one, the Mac,¬†which seemed like a sensible one to start on. The first is the System 1 style which came, unsurprisingly, with the first mac's the 128k and then 512k. It was a challenge to do ūüėāAll the icons were monochrome which makes sense as so were the screens. The second is just a recolour of the first just to see if it looked ok or not. The 3rd is system 7 style, they showed them grey for some reason, probably low colour. Then the final one is a skeuomorphic one. I didn't bother with system 9 as they went 3d by then and aren't particularly pretty. Also I¬†think they dropped the classic mac icons by then as the power macs¬†had replaced them.

I might do some more as even doing some skeuomorphic style ones aren't exactly taxing.

I never had one of the old macs, I did think about buying one a while back but then thought what would I do with it! I installed a couple of emulators on my macbook today, they will do.

I've been having more of a think and know how I'm going to try and do them, I'll try again tomorrow. The last one needs a little tidy up in one place too, it was late I should have double checked or left it until the morning.

I didn't either but it was fabulous times.
