I have been getting kind e-mails from several who have taken my workshop, which has been sent out through CGMW. http://www.cgmwonline.com/Vehicle-Design-Sci-Fi-Ship.html . I am glad to know that it is informative and inspiring for those who have viewed it thus far. Draw on Designers!!!
I am very proud to say that Carbodydesign.com is sponsoring a design contest with my CGMA Fall Class as the prize.

Hello All, I am working on a demo through CGMW where I will present to you my production pipeline. I will be assembling thumbnails, development draughtings and some 3-d modeling, to show you how I go about designing a fantastical Sci-Fi Ship. More to come soon...
In the concept sketch above, I did not do any pre-designing and just started to pushing large shapes/geometries around. Below are some images that I generated because some students asked me to show them how I rough together some Motorcycle concepts from scratch.
I always stress to my students in class, to having a clear design direction, from the very beginning of your design goal. So even in the abstract (step 1) it is already obvious where things are headed. Keep drawing!
I have been extremely busy as of late. I have worked on some projects that I have to update this blog with. Sorry, just been extremely busy. I will update for this project and many more, soon to follow...
I was very happy to be in such an esteemed Art Department. I was amongst a very talented crew, Storyboard Artists, Art Directors, Set Designers, Conceptual Model Makers, everyone top notch also incredibly esteemed colleagues in the Concept Art realm. Cheers to Production Designer : Grant Major, & Director: Martin Campbell.
(Some of these images were collaborations with the talented Paul Ozzimo, Rodolfo Damaggio & Justin Sweet).
I have probably been watching too much Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones lately. Is there such a thing as watching too much of those titles- probably not. Any-who, here is my take on a Princess whose outer beauty becomes deformed...
Looking forward to seeing you there. This is a very dynamic class focusing aggressively on drawing and developing your personal design voice. I cover fairly advanced design philosophies so bringing basic drawing skills into this class will help, but I emphasize fundamentals for beginner students as well. Please open the door to see what is going on inside the class :)
Louis Armstrong and a Mr. Michael Codd. One name might be familiar to you, but another one might not. Indeed they are both strong!Louis is a brilliant musician, and Michael Codd is a brilliant painter.
I happened to have the great privilege of viewing Mr. Codd's paintings in person (36" x 48 " gouache paintings- the man is for real!!!) and boy did I "hear the music".
