March of Robots entry: Supermodel Fembot Lips

This is a piece that had to get onto paper as soon as it was envisioned.  I had originally thought of it in a metallic finish -even a flat grey- but the allure of red ultimately overcame that idea, and I needed it to easily convey the look of lips.  They are inspired by Emily DiDonato's.  I'm very satisfied with the upper lip, but referencing the outward folds in the lip flesh didn't allow for such a complicated pattern on the bottom lip- so they turned out more square.  The original sketch (after the jump, cat fur strand in-tact) took about 40 mins and the paint-over took about 3 hours.

Enjoy!

CORD 8100 Lev Sedan


A day off before Christmas gave me the sweet few hours I needed to hone in on some details that would resolve a Cord concept I sketched up a few months ago.  I'm really happy with the proportion of this one- it's more successful than the Bugatti, which ended up looking too narrow overall.  This one has clearly exaggerated pylons and motivators, giving it a much more fantastic, futuristic feel. Also, putting this lev car in an environment allowed for more complete, interesting and challenging reflections.

No Room for Error


Featured on Jalopnik & StangTV

Here's a response rendering to the images that went viral today showing what is claimed to be data screenshots of the 2015 Mustang.  As followers of this blog know, this car has been my most anticipated upcoming release for the last two years.  The renderings posted on MustangG6 left much to be desired in the Musclular department, often being compared to a previous gen Accord coupe.  That's not to be taken lightly.  Although my rendering is based on a 2013 Shelby Super snake, I believe it to accurately capture the character of the Anniversary Mustang.  Many of the details such as the grill dividers are visible in the spy-photos and are not my creation.

Follow the jump to see one of the spy photos this is based on.

Enjoy!

Colors of Summer


Summer is here once again, so here's a fresh season opener for my dear readers.  Here to welcome you is the delightful Emily Didonato (same model as "Evil or Ecstasy").  The biggest challenge of this piece was showing the proper form and mixing the colors smoothly enough for her right biceps.  Although there are a number of colors across her arm, I feel like it would've been easier if I had a firm grasp on what the muscles beneath were doing.  At CCS I never had a proper anatomy class, so I've never done a good muscle study.  I think it's high time I try one.  Hit the jump for the line layout.

Moto Rumi Rejuvenation


This is a re-render of the final presentation image for my Moto-Rumi Capolavoro motorcycle senior studio.  I felt the need to rework the piece, for reasons from quality concerns to unconventionally [illegally] placed kickstands.  I'm still working out some details in the handlebar area, and below are some recent engine work-out sketches.

Weekly Sectionals: Impala on a Diet


I've been staring at the press release images of the 2014 Impala, and I have to think the best modification for this car would be an entire drivetrain transplant and a proportion overhaul - no small task in real life.  With the power of photoshop however, this overgrown antelope can easily benefit from a 400 lb diet.

Photo modifications include: vehicle lowered ~1.5", sectioned ~2", with bodyline proportionally raised .75" overall, and .5° of forward rake added to bodyline.  Greenhouse reduced in all directions & moved rearward, front wheel size reduced ~1", and front door cutline moved rearward 2.5".  Lightgroups and door handles have been shifted, not modified.

I think the result is rather fetching.
