Sail Cars!

When we eventually run out of gas - given the recent drop in petrol pricing has brought back all manner of bad habits - we will need billowy sails to pan our gas guzzlers across the scenery - Hence the sketch page.  Final renderings should find their way to the blog some time next week.

The Blueprints

Above:  An early iteration of the Cadillac Concept-LT interior.  I'm building this guy in Alias to assure that my interior design will fit my vehicle package.
As the quarter is wrapping up, so is my Cadillac project.  Above is the package drawing for what, save for a few cosmetic changes, is my final design.

2021 VW Vanagon

For this Descom assignment, we were asked to ideate on and render a 7 passenger family mover.  I decided to resurrect an old favorite - the VW Vanagon.

Cadillac Project - More Sketch Pages

Another round of sketches on the Cadillac project. I'm still all over the map, but I feel there's at least a unifying aesthetic that's starting to emerge.

Cadillac Project - Sketch Pages

These are a few sketch pages from this week. It's a new sketch technique for me, so there's clearly a lot of room for improvement, but I'm really enjoying the process. The exterior direction is starting to take on a Gears of War feel - a sort of Art Nouveau meets the post-apocalyptic future. The detail is a little extraneous at this point, but I'm trying to allude to engineering and technology underneath that's beyond our present understanding. The Cadillac project is fast becoming an entertainment design project for me, which I'm hoping will be accompanied by some sweet character and environmental design before the quarter is out.

Descom Corrections For Midterm

A few re-touches of previously posted work for my descom midterm. The most dramatic change is the Dacia Sandero Transformer - he benefits from an hour of extra detail work (in place of alluded form) that I think really sells him. I'm considering leaking him to Autoblog in the form of a Transformers 2 sculpt sheet. Just kidding - my former supervisors from Hasbro would hunt me down and devour my soul.
