    Hi everyone!

    Love the Apple hardware design so much that i recently decided to make vector icons/pictures from the latest line of Macs and iPods with Photoshop. Haven't used the blending options, but created everything with shapes and masks. The images below are resized a lot to make it fit on a screen. What do you guys think of them?

    The icons below are purely shapes, except from the wallpapers and album art.

    Would love to see other creations inspired on the Apple products too!

    i don't have a submission but would you happen to have a tutorial on making that macbook pro. It looks really nice and the only tutorials i could find were for old non-unibody ones?

    I don't have a tutorial for it, as I learned it myself. Basically what i do is take a part from the mac, eg. the bottom of the MBP and draw the shape with the pentool. Copy, paste the same layer, the first layer you can give it the basic color, and the layer on top of that the color of the shadow. Now add a layer mask on the shadow layer and you can draw with a brush where you want a shadow. Hope this helps?

    Looks nice, but your Apple logo and the latch are off-center.

    EDIT TO ADD: Looks like you fixed it. Looks real good.

    Nice, good work on the MBP and the details of the Nano screen. How did you make the keyboard on the MBP? Looks great.

    I took a pic of the keyboard I found online and perspective transformed it.
