Robots have been a driving force in technological innovations and in multimedia roles. From movies such as Star Wars, i,Robot, Wall-E, and Terminator, to videogames, and even real life with the Mars Rover, robots have advanced significantly over the past years in both design and functionality. As with any expanding field, artists often create conceptual works to help direct and illustrate.
This post showcases 40 brilliant robotic artworks from the most talented digital painters and CG artists from around the world. From mind-blowingly photorealistic CG renders to clever comic illustrations, you’ll want one of these robots for your own.

Jan Wöllert and Jörg Miedza, from Bremen, Germany, are the creators of these amazing light paintings. Light painting, also known as light drawing or light graffiti is a photographic technique in which exposures are made usually at night or in a darkened room by moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera (wikipedia).
A little of inspiration from the duo Nicolle Clemetson & Mike Campau, two American visual artists that did this images in their spare time (!).

As a Christmas gift to its top advertising clients, Facebook typically gives money to donate to a charity of their choice, along with a special item like last year’s reusable shopping bag. This year they decided to do an art poster and the in-house Communication Design Team got to work.
The result is a 19 × 19-inch-square poster that is printed, embossed and foiled with a delicate, intricate and obsessive design that has the signature typographic and illustrative style of Ben Barry, a designer at Facebook — and if you’ve been following his cryptic photo status updates on Facebook you finally have closure on what he was working on all this time.
To encourage the donation aspect of the gift, the poster comes with a silkscreened, wooden token that is then customized on the back with a unique code for redeeming the donation. But the token doesn’t just lay there, no, it comes nested in a pretty little flower-like pod that holds it in place. And even opening the poster requires paying attention to the custom printed packing tape and the lovely rubber stamp that has been stamped by hand.
There are also two different Thank You cards printed in 1-color offset and clear foil stamp.
