I absolutely LOVE my two instructables shirts and I get very nice comments about them. I like this logo that tells right by the robot what it's about. My shirt the website URL is tiny on back. I play wallyball at the local YMCA and I hope it is good advertising. I also hope to make one like this with more information. LOVE IT All! Thanks

How is the robot logo licensed?  Could someone put it on a t-shirt and sell it to instructables fans?

P/S: How am I suppose to draw the robot's knee??

Here's my attempt at a ninja. Kind of simple, but straight to the point. I might add more some time later.
cool!!! good job!!!
Give him a Katana on his back!

Hey those are great! Here's one i made.....

Thanks, He rocks. can you put his bike in the picture?
Posssibly ya, i might be able to add it! Also Garth can you posssibly make a robot picture of me! Just check my pic out! It would be so cool if you could! Thanks.
See what you think of this... my 3 year old walked in and said "robot-witch silly" and now that image is stuck in my head. I meant him to be a wizard, -really.

And his nuclear warning staff ;-)
Quick, enter these in the Hallowe'en competition!
I don't really think there is a proper category, but thanks for the suggestion.
Canida said to post them in a thread in the halloween contest forum, and someone already started them. post them in this thread in the DIY Halloween forum
I'd enter them in the Pictures and Video section.
These are so good I now have to work harder to compete. Time for me to go back to the coloring board. Nice Job!
These are awesome! I particularly love the wrapping on his antenna.
I love the mummy.. :)

Was that at all modeled on Jack Sparrow?
make the wheels larger and but a rotor tail so that it can float and swin
All Wrong, you mean CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow, lmao, jk jk
Aww..your pirate is better than mine. ...seriously, how do you do it?
I have the origional Robot.eps file which I open as a .jpg at a whopping 1000dpi. Then open one (1) beer. .................... Twenty minutes later: here, take a look at this:
C:\instructables files\drawing.jpg
Did you make that? Pretty cool. problem is making the inconsistent width the cube has, and making them look smooth/natural.
In this case, I do not feather the line I cut out. Rather I have smoothing set to the highest setting. It can be a real pain as the program curves the line, not always where it's wanted.

Dang, these are good...Do I get a pilot one? Or something with Apple, though I admittedly still use Windows (yuck). Maybe I should just make one myself.

he has a gps chip that is impossible to turn off and uploads to

I believe the appropriate response is "w00t!"
Goodhart Kiteman10 years ago
So does that out date Woo-hoo ? Or just abbreviate it ? (Sorry, it has been like I have been in a cave for the past 25-30 years, I know *sigh*) A recent drawing of one of my campaigns:
Kiteman Goodhart10 years ago
"w00t" is an exclamation of how good stuff is. Woo-woo is stuff that people when it's wrong, like creationism and free energy.
CameronSS Kiteman10 years ago
Here (at least among the people I talk to) w00t generally means that something is anticlimactic, e.g., "Great news! I just tied my shoes!" "Woot!"
Goodhart Kiteman10 years ago
Oh, pardon me . I have been out of it for awhile. Woo-Hoo, was akin to Yahoo! an Whoop(i)! at one all of those have different connotations too *sigh*
I'll double that! w00t! w00t! Heh.

For some of us, it's already been...
Is that for real? very neat. If so, i had missed that they had already been done. The one I posted is just photoshopped. I guess I had better go look at the instructables store. GK
Those aren't in the store, they're prizes for contests.
It's real, and in my pocket as I type. T3_Muffinator won one, and his has his Muffin avatar on it.
Hehe, I'll post!
Yeah, we're allowed to put a small bw picture on it. Mine has the banner from my website, minus the ".com".

who can make a good stop motion style animation following the Instructables robot thru his many daily adventures? The script writes itself. Robot in the background of daily current events, at home... Take any sitcom or movies of the past few decades and mash them up with Robot; and any of the other "bots" that have shown up lately. I see him doing stand up -Jerry Sienfieldbot. -as C-botPO -looking for Sarah Conner -3 bots and a baby -Indiana Bot and the temple of... It just doesn't stop. GK ps. please send me 4% of all gross made including merchandising tie-ins, -everything.

I do these as "speed graphics" to see how fast I can rework an image from start to finish, at night before the ambien kicks in. The wife would rather I got my arse in bed, and to the office on time in the am. Sigh. More pictures to come, but I don't know just when. GK
I'll work on kitemans tonight =]

Another one... who is this? I will upload the files in a day or so, now I sleep.
C:\instructables files\ROBOT LEMONIE.jpg
Wow! That's really good! Photoshop or illustrator??
Low tech approch: I opened the .eps as a raster image at 1000 dpi, then cut/paste/drew in various layers while drinking heavily. I have jasc Paint Shop Pro 9, and while I would love to work in vector graphics, I've not had the time to figure out what prog is best. Q: vector images can be converted to raster, but can raster images be converted to vector? Note: NO knex were used in this project. (it CAN be done people)
Yeah. There are some apps- Adobe Illustrator has a tracing feature, and Flash has trace bitmap tool.
Is that me? L (I'm saving a copy anyway)
Hope you don't mind. I had thought you were wearing red tinted eyeglasses in the avatar, then I blew it up and saw that it appears to be a pub photo... with red GLASSES on your face. been there/done that. so thought it would be fun to make a "robot" version.
Yea I like it. L

Question: when a picture is posted in the forum comments, is there a way to view the original image, like clicking the "i" in an Instructable or forum topic image? Also: is there a way to take the PDF files and save them as PNG or TIFF? I hate JPEGs for nice, high-quality, large images like these-JPEG lossy compression fuzzes the clean edges. Not sure what I'll do with these, but I can probably find something. Maybe I'll make myself a new desktop background.
noahw (author)  CameronSS10 years ago
I don't think that comment pictures have the "i", however, if you click on the picture, a larger format will open up. Whether that is the original full size format that the user uploaded - I don't know. Most image editors that can read .pdf's should be able to save or export them as whatever you would like.
Bran10 years ago
I have Photoshop CS2, but when I try to open up one of the .eps files, it says the the parser module couldn't parse the file. Is this a problem on my end, or with the file?
Um, how do I view an eps file?
You don't say what type of OS (computer) you are using. If you don't know how to open it then you are probably better off just using the PDF. What do you intend to do with it after you open it?
Oh I don't know... I'm using windows XP... I don't intend to do anything with it... I just want to know how to open it.
It's a PostScript file you can't open the file with out the right software. Some printers know what to do with PS. Not all. Usually used by graphic artist, tech writers... PS was developed by Adobe for their software.
Here's some info but... I don't know how technical you are or want to be...
noahw (author)  drinkmorecoffee10 years ago
The .eps files are editable in something like Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator. You can get an .eps viewer online for free, but you won't be able to do much to the images then. The three images on the forum post are also large format .jpg's if anyone wants to use those. Just click on the "i" button in the upper left to get to the high-res versions.
I like your new look!

Awesome work Garth Knight! You just earned yourself an Instructables Robot t-shirt. Do you happen to have the image as an .eps or .ai file? (I should have mentioned above - we need vector based illustrator files so that we can scale them). I will send you a PM with the rest of the shirt info.
