Robin font / shape vectors
All the are vectors for any size of work so you can use them to create posters as well as small thumbnails. They can be used in black (I have a tendency to always use black in most of my examples) but they could easily be applied in green, red, brown, blue and other colors or you can use varying layer effects (though this does depend on the application but many now include some form of layer effects or visual effects) to create metallic birds, wooden birds, fabric ones and more.
How were the robin font shapes created ???
They are in a mix of different poses as well (they were all created using various renders in the excellent rendering software application, Poser 9 from Smith Micro - well worth checking out) and then captured as vector graphics via the vector trace tools (recently improved in AI CS6). The set was then created using Fontlab as was all the EPS files
