I was pleased to see some of my sketches and designs featured on a Car Design News article about Motorstorm. Motorstorm was one of the launch games for the new Sony PS3 developed by Evolution Studios, UK. I was fortunate enough to be part of the team that designed some of the vehicles for the game. I will post the original sketches not shown on CDN shortly, but some can already be viewed here. See the ATV, race lorry, race pickup and b&w rally car, those are original sketches. Then you see some examples of modeling which are based on another designs I proposed for a rally car and dune buggy. You should see some more original sketches not on CDN at the bottom of this post.
Wednesday night drawing lessons. These sketches were demonstrations on how I use Photoshop and Illustrator in design. The focus was not so much about the design but the technique of rendering with computer.
Previous weeks lesson was a Photoshop shoe rendering lesson. The shoe is an Air Jordan featuring holes all the way through the heal. Literally a 5 minute sketch put strait into Photoshop. No Illustrator in this the shoe rendering, which is unusual. Normally I take the sketch into Illustrator to get all the lines working. Then take that into Photoshop for the realistic rendering. However for speed, I went straight into Photoshop for this lesson.
This weeks lesson was on rendering in Illustrator. The Second sketch of the ‘Boom Bax’ was mostly an Illustrator sketch with a little Photoshop at the end for extra bling. Nothing much featured on this design except simplicity.
