    Jake Rickard - An ID Attempt

    Hey, this is just a rendering that I have done recently, one of my first times using color after a concluded sum of studies. The bike was designed mainly as a study piece, but everything is my own design except for the disk brakes, in all honesty, just used them from Scott Robertson, just to label his credit from his ID Bike design tutorial, I was going to paint some new ones but thought there wasn't a need for it, and I put some more test renders.

    These are some pretty strong studies, you should be proud. The one or two things I could say to be picky would be too double check the intensity of the bounce light you have, particularly in the front blue section of the bike. Otherwise, I think these are pretty solid

    Measure the distance between the bike's pedals and seat.

    Then measure the distance between the bike's seat and handle bar.

    Notice something?

    No one would be able to pedal this bike and hold on the handle bar in the same time. You've broken the #1 fundamental of industrial design: IT MUST FRIGGIN' WORK.

    I can see that. It slides back quite a bit, though, and that brings the handle bar even more out of the rider's reach.

    It might be an idea to show additional practical usage illustrations? For instance, it wouldn't hurt to do another side view drawing with a rider on the bike showing how you intended it to work - all the gizmos and articulations etc... I'm sure Arenhaus wouldn't be the only person to go wtf... and if you haven't done it already as part of your design process, I'm sure it would be useful.

    And then I would suggest a nice perspective 3/4 illustration of the bike in action with motion blur and all that and a lance armstrong dude on top of it going round a corner in the alps.

    Then you would have a complete piece fit for doing battle with!

    Awesome stuff!

    I like that idea Mr Love =p, Arenhaus I'm ashamed that after I changed the handle bar design I didn't realize how oblong it was and un practical, I will have to sort that out soon, I do like the idea of creating a 3/4 though. I am currently in the process of studying environment setups, so designing a scene for the bike would be a great start and a great challenge, and lance armstrong, all I can say is "The Stig" =D
