    Tensai Tokyo Sketch Thread - Sept 28 Exhibition + Commissioned Work Tests!

    thanks for all the comments! - really appreciate it.

    Atmospheria - thanks, maybe you'll have a crit later - there is always place for improvement no?

    MorteM - cheers, my dad is a shoe designer so i grew up with shoes and the smell of glue and leather everywhere...

    Shamagim - didnt know this book was anticipated. the tentacle ship originally started out as a duct ship. see below.

    PoohGee - cheers. glad you like the design..

    Salaryman - that means a lot coming from you! big big fan of your work. hope to get to that next level drawing skill of yours.

    Bojee - yeah i'll probably end up using it in an environment pic i need to occupy. more like starting from a city scene and occupy it with designs or character that i did. as opposed to making a background for a design i did, know what i mean? the environments are my lead character...

    clogik - thanks man, love your book. i like to see books with design sketches. its CA after all.

    alright. i went and did some more thumbs on the ship design. i like the tentacle ship sketch but when i did the first thumbs i was thinking of a ship made of ducts and pipes.

    i like the design, but think i like the colors of that glowing tentacle version better. i did pencils on my lighttable this time and i think i miss the blue pencil line, which kept things a bit more loose.

    I was hoping you would create a sketchbook here .

    Nice lips and eyes sketches, and kudos for a really original idea on that tentacle looking ship.

    You still did not have a sketchbook .. surprised I am

    I certainly like the blue/violett / orange ( mmmmh my favourite colours ) ship above.
    It reminds me of the anime stuff I saw on Matrix Extra DVD .

    They remind me of worms or some strange sea creature attacking this guy & in a few seconds tearing him & his little ship/scooter apart.

    You can propably find lots of "strange" looking things like the above in the sea .
    All these alien-looking snakes - fish - snails hiding in the deep waters.
    Also reminds me of Dune - sandworms .
    And leeches (or is it leech - the plural ?) .

    Shamagim : "kudos for a really original idea on that tentacle looking ship"
    Yeah the ship could be an octopus or so ... that dude is riding an octopus back home

    JUST IMO

    Very cool. Are you going to put it in an enviroment now?? It's cool as it is but it'd be fun to see it flying over, through, or around something.

    tensai -Just read what you wrote, makes total sense. If your shooting for a duct/pipe ship I think you need more straight lines in the pipes, and when they do turn maybe make the turns sharper, the curves will always make it feel more organic. I think I like the ship before a little more, definitely more fluid, more of a sense of movement.
    The guy and the interior look cool.

    thanks again for the comments.

    Yoshi's Island - those are all from a little book 'human figure' book i got. i find that by just drawing all the drawings in there i remember bit by bit.

    That fat kid - yeah just like to check out some different techniques and try to get to know them and find new combinations.

    GriNGoLoCo - thanks man, glad you like the design on that one. i dont study anymore, i have two master degrees in architecture and that is way more than necessary. wish i could have spend some time in an animation school or something.

    Bojee man, i agree with you on the ships crit. the first is more fluid, and the colours are more juicy. but even with the ducts version i wanted to keep it a bit organic cause thats what these massive collections of pipes always look like to me (i spend a lot of times on rooftops to take pictures here in tokyo). they are of course pure utlitiarian but at some point dont look that systematic anymore. like they got out of control or nobody knows how to handle the mess and they just keep adding and adding more ducts and machines.

    anyway, here is the update:
    did this with gouache to give to my friend. was too lazy to set my tripod and lights up so this photo is not too good.

    quick sketch from ref from a young monk who apparantly wants to make buddhism POP if i understood the article correct.

    i went into this huge, and i mean huge underground space a while ago. an insane tunnel system right under the busiest parts of tokyo. and these are some first thumbnail sketches for thinking about how we could be using the available technology and use it to make those underground spaces livable.

    there are these central shafts from which a couple of tunnels go off into different directions. we could couple eight of those shafts to a bigger central space. that central space could be the public space of that underground neighborhood.
    Tensai Tokyo Sketch Thread - Sept 28 Exhibition + Commissioned Work Tests!


    sketch out of scale but we could connect those central spaces with tunnels. the tunnels also carry utility lines like electra, phone, air etc. thats why they are built right now. diameter of the tunnel was between 5 and 6 meters. but bigger is possible. (i actually walked up till the drilling machine. and watched the drill head turn and i swear it was like walking into Akira with all the pipes and mad machinery everywhere.)

    central space and using ducts with mirrors/lenses in them that would act as light periscopes to get light to lower levels
    Tensai Tokyo Sketch Thread - Sept 28 Exhibition + Commissioned Work Tests!


    perhaps we would need bridges to cross the central shafts to connect tunnels
    Tensai Tokyo Sketch Thread - Sept 28 Exhibition + Commissioned Work Tests!

    think i will develop some designs later on and when those are finished make some ills and make a little booklet out of it.


    gonna try to do some figure studies. i love some of the amazing figure studies on CA and i would love to go to life figure drawing but right now i will have to do with ref that you can find online.

    and i thought some grapefruit colours would make it a bit more juicy
