Sci-Fi Sketchstravaganza

Had an interview earlier this week during which I mentioned my sketchbooks full of spaceship doodles and they said they'd like to see some of them so I went through the past couple years of sketchbooks and scanned some choice cuts. I actually had a great time looking back, seeing what phases I went through and remembering what influenced me at the time. It's actually kind of funny how some of the sketches I did years ago can inspire me now. Anyway, enjoy!

These ones actually made me laugh. I was kind of amazed at how many times I redesigned the same ship over and over and over. Funny how different the first and last incarnations are.

Have an interview coming up so I wanted to post some new beauties and wires of a couple personal pieces from last year. I did some minor updates to the Batmobile but both of these still need more work, mainly in the interiors. It's been harder to find time to work on these than I expected, especially with this commercial I'm working on now. Ten hour days plus weekends! Rough! Anyway pretty happy with these renders, but this might be one of the last times I use mental ray as I've been learning vray and I'm pretty impressed with it so far!

Happy New Year! Batman:TAS Batmobile

Decided to have some fun modeling the Batman: The Animated Series Batmobile this weekend. Still need to model the interior, UV layout and make bump maps for the headlights, tallights and tires but I'm pretty happy with the progress I've made in just two days. Total hours logged: 17
