Wow. Amazing. As an architecture student, I was wondering why these concept artists people keep stealing our software, especially Sketchup. Now I wonder if it isn't actually more ideal for this type of stuff. Very impressive level of detail and realism! It looks believable.
I wanted to do design retro style robot. I recently had a job designing retro style robots/vehicles and it was a ton of fun. Since I cannot show those designs yet, I wanted to do my own that I could show.
I got permission to post some of the work I recently did for The TOPPS Company. These designs we're done to create a unified look for all the Martian war machines in the new comic book series. The comic book artists will use my designs as a template in the series. This was a awesome job, I didn't have to create any shiny illustrations, it was pure design.T he new series is being published by IDW. Go check it out.
The style was a mix of retro and a little bit of hi-tech thrown together.
