    it was the best of times, it was the worst of times :) (random title)

    NOTE: LATEST IMAGE ON FRONT PAGE... but all new content at back page too

    new image:
























    Hey guys!

    Hey guys, here is some stuff, all old: but i will be making new stuff as much as possible! I am ALWAYS looking for constructive crits so please chip and help me improve!



















































    And this was a project I did for Diesel Kids (working hard to give those kids some brand loyalty... i'm not proud, but it was fun







































    and this is a project I have been undertaking (big shout out to Alex Jupp who was my cake-consuming wingman during the opening stages of the process... he knows no limits!)





































































    I've got some more stuff from my new job in amsterdam but i can't show it yet... will get it up asap!

    Hey guys!

    Takmask... yeh my Bungie fanboy days are coming to a close now lol... but its nice you recognise it

    Lyno: thanks

    Ekler: haha. its a pattern i hadn't actually recognised, but yes, it seems i have a thing for asian girls in my images... just seems natural that an attractive asian chick would be piloting / maintaining a giant mech! Its the natural order there will be more

    Gonna work on a portrait today in my lunchbreak

    Fantastic work. I have a hard time believing those hands aren't real! I think your 3d work is beautiful aswell as your anatomy studies.

    Yeah. Same here. I also gave you 5 stars.

    Those robot models are totally totally amazing. The hands are so detailed yet still seemed balanced. Awesome start to your sketchbook!!!

    wow that comic and all that 3d stuff was so cool to look at.

    actually one my favourite piece was actually the f-15 or whatever from the back? looking at the afterburners behind it and your painting really felt ..like there were heatwaves coming from it and all.

    good stuff ;D

    Hi MikeyH, I know what you mean when you say it's hard to chose between design so I'll try to give some crits :

    First of all, I think the design fits, but I have to admit I didn't found the cockpit on first sight. Then I noticed the bumper in front and the white... .

    Anyway ^^, design ok, just little crits now:
    First, will the car be able to turn his front wheels, it's seems that it will be able some degrees I think, maybe you should think to "define the functionality" a little more?
    Crit about the render: There's a gold shell where you can see through, the one in the middle.
    A tip maybe, maybe you can tell us what the settings of the concept are. His environment, sort of car (race,...). Some background information.
    Another thing I want to notice, when you take a look at the 3th render, for me personally I think they are to much parts undefined, but I'm sure you would put more details on it on a later stage, so just a reminder .

    I hope this somewhat helped, gl with it .

    variations

    hey guys,

    right, did some tightening and variations this morning... so here are the results

    want to make the suspension system and chassis adustable... its going to be a headache, but it shouldn't be a major problem... its just trying to satisfy the overally aesthetic with the functionality that will giving me some dilemnas



    Lyno,

    thanks for the response... the wheels are going to be turnable from inside, sounds wierd, is weird but it should work, but you were spot on in that original render the tyres were way too close to the chassis

    the car is going to be for covering huge expanses of salt plains or desert... thats it right now... i want to make it quick, streamlined, sexy and exotic and as well produced as possible so that it seems real

    will definitely bring more definition in, you're spot on there! thanks a lot for the feedback!

    more to come

    Mike

    car help!

    need feedback urgently...!





    of 1 and 2 which one has the most interesting scaling... and keep in mind this will decide the overall size of the car as the scale will be adjusted to fit a pilot... or possibly make it a two seater like a jet fighter!

    Please let me know what you think so i can get into the overpaint bit

    PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!

    I would go for number 1 cause the body looks biger. Number 2 gives me the impression of small boy and big wheels. But the angle of the render can trick me.
    The first one also has more of the white, which also gives a "bigger" impression I think.
    The wheels at the back have a cool design .

    Wow, great sketchbook you've got here
    The apple study is pretty sweet and the re-fueling jet is just jawdroppingly awesome!

    That last portrait actually shows a lot of potential IMO. You might want to increase the contrast at focal points though. Just try not to go overboard with the contrast because the limited value range can work very well (such as here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=124532 )

    You've gotten off to a great start. Keep up the pace
