feeling romantic... revised

after being forced to submit because of the looming deadline, I was able to go back and spend a few more hrs tweaking this. I widened the shot so we can see the mirrors on the side, and took some time to render the mirrors, played with the perspective a bit, and gave it some overall love.

Hope you like it!

Weekly Illo is back!

Some friends have gotten together to do weekly illustrations to force us to do some drawing that is purely for fun and non industry related. This weeks topic was designing a secondary character for the Disney/ Pixar "Cars" universe.

"Boost " was a character from the original "Cars" that was modeled after a Nissan Skyline. So i thought it would be cool to show an updated version based off a 2012 GTR. I also thought that since Boost ended up in trouble at the end of the first movie, that he is a bit older now and laid off the mods for his new version. Still a few, (lots of cabon fiber and the cool new matte finish paint job :P ) but not over the top. I may do an all out modded version later for kicks.

Big shout out to Tweakfox @ for the vector art tutorial. (I couldn't have done it without you!) Boost was all drawn in Photoshop using vectors, and then over painted for all the shading and finishing touches.

feeling romantic?

A high end, french, custom perfume shop concept for NDIA. Part of a batch of renderings i am working on for Smart Design Group. It is an amazing collaborative process with the interior designer to get the finishes, furniture and merchandise etc. they have in mind. From a floor plan, a line drawing is created and the finishes are applied. From there,a constant dialogue is continued through progress, and appropriate changes will be made until the vision is achieved.

This is the end result :)

this is rich....

Loathe as I was to pay my ticket, I bitterly logged onto the City of Vancouver's website to pay electronically. When I got to the site I quickly found the link I was looking for. Lucky for me, it was easy to find under the " popular links " section of the website. How convenient.
